That’s 78.5%. In an 82-game season, that’s 64-18. To put that into perspective, the Milwaukee Bucks had the NBA’s best record this season with “only” 60-22.

His playoff record over that span is 63-20, or a 76% win percentage, which is just CRAZY!

2.) ECF struggles

The Eastern Conference Finals is giving us some pretty good basketball but it can’t be denied that some key players were off in the first three games.

According to NBA.com/stats, Fred VanVleet, Serge Ibaka, and Pascal Siakam made only 5 of 29 wide open shots (defender at least six feet away) while Giannis Antetokounmpo, Eric Bledsoe, and Khris Middleton are worse, shooting 12% or 4-for-33.

3.) Speaking of FVV…

The Raptors guard has an abysmal 35% TS% in the playoffs, the third worst performance of any player with at least 10 playoff games and playing at least 20 minutes.

The first two were Robert Horry in 02-03 and Jason Kidd in 12-13.

4.) Fun Cherry-Picked Stat

Giannis Antetokounmpo’s 23-rebound, four-block performance in Game 3 was the first of that kind since Bismack Biyombo’s 26-rebound, four-block performance in the 2016 ECF.

The other two who had at least 23 rebounds and four blocks in the playoffs were Hakeem Olujawon (twice) and Tim Duncan.
