Leonard can be said to be the hottest star at the moment. Leading the Raptors to defeat the Warriors who are aiming for three consecutive championships has made him famous. The offseason whereabouts has attracted the attention of many fans and the media. James is getting older, and Leonard seems to be the first man in the league when Durant is seriously injured. If he really leads the Clippers to win the championship next season, his historical status will improve a lot. He is indeed a man. A super star with both offensive and defensive capabilities may be more impressive than offensive and defensive. Let's take a look at his performance against the star.
A game for some of the league’s super scorers It’s not difficult to score 40 points, we can often see superstars in single matchesJi has scored 10 or even 20 40-plus points, but it is not easy to get 40 points in the face of one person's defense, that is, Leonard, the two-time best defensive player. In terms of active scoring ability, James is absolutely top-notch. Although he is not known for scoring, his career total score is already the first in active service, and he has a lot of high-scoring performances, but he never scored against Leonard James. Over 40.
In his career James played against Leonard 21 For the second time, he averaged 25.8 points per game, which is pretty good, but there was no 40-plus score in these 21 matches. James’ highest score was in the 2013 Finals tie-breaker against the Spurs.With 37 points, the ability to defend James so well shows how strong Leonard’s defensive ability is. Now the two will play together in Los Angeles next season. It will be very exciting. Who is the king of Los Angeles? See the resolution.
To say the star who can score the most points in the past two years It is Harden. Last season, Harden averaged 36.1 points per game. This scoring ability is really terrifying. Maybe no one will be able to catch up in the next 10 years. Watching Harden’s scoring performance and getting 40 points is just commonplace. But it’s not so easy for Harden to score when facing Leonard. Although the two are in different positions, as long as they face the Rockets, whether it is the Raptors or the Spurs, Leonard will be sent to defend Harden. This effect is true.Yes, the two have played a total of 32 games. Harden is averaging 24.6 points per game, but he only scored more than 40 points once.
It was the Rockets and Spurs in the 2017 playoffs In the third game of the series, Harden made 14 of 28 shots and scored 43 points, but the Rockets still lost the game. Last season, Harden scored 35 points against the Raptors in both scenes and hits. The rate is only 40%. Leonard’s defensive effect on Harden can be seen. Harden uses breakthrough and retreat steps as the main scoring means. Leonard’s speed and long arms are still very effective in limiting Harden. The Rockets and Clippers are destined to be opponents in the West next season, and the duel between the two will be very exciting.
How hard is it to score 40 points on Leonard? James 0 times, Harden 1 time, and only him 2 times. That is Durant, the god of death. Durant really has no fear of anyone in terms of scoring ability. If he does not hurt the finals, the result may not be what it is now. The Spurs were arguably the strongest opponent during the Thunder. The two have played 33 times. Durant averaged 27.5 points per game, but it is not easy to get 40 points.
The first time I passed 40 points was in 2016In the fourth game between the Thunder and the Spurs in the playoffs, Durant scored 41 points on 14 of 25 shooting. He scored 51 points on 18 of 31 shots, but Leonard also scored 37 points and led the team to victory. As the top small forwards, the matchup between the two is always wonderful, but unfortunately I didn’t see it in the finals. I hope Durant can recover and go to the championship next season to challenge the Los Angeles duo and defeat James and Lun. Nader must be important to Durant, let's wait and see.
