Default Kawhi, Giannis,...?

Kawhi and Giannis are the two best players in their respective series but who is the 3rd best player in the series? Pascal Siakam or Khris Middleton?

They have been nearly identical during this year's playoffs

2019 Playoffs Siakam
21p, 7r, 3a on 53% eFG with 1.6 spg, 0.6 bpg
ORtg: 113
DRtg: 100
WS/48: .184
VORP: 0.6
BPM: 3.4

2019 Playoffs Middleton
19p, 6r, 5a on 53% eFG with 0.8 spg, 0.0 bpg
ORtg: 116
DRtg: 101
WS/48: .193
VORP: 0.4
BPM: 3.7

This is insane. I mean, look at these numbers they really are nearly the same damn player. So, who is the 3rd best player in the series?

Well after game 1, sure. But what about the overall playoffs looking at a bigger sample size than one game who are you picking?

Iíll take Middleton just because siakam has less experience and Middleton can hit spot ups well. Iíll predict neither are going play too well rest of the series. Being guarded by Giannis and kawhi is tough

Middleton is lighting up from 3 compared to Siakam

Middleton = 47% 3P
Siakam = 31% 3P

A healthy Brogdon has a case as the 3rd best player in this series. Many times he's Milwaukee's second best player.

The bucks are stacked. They have 4 guys outside of Giannis who ate all legit 2nd options

siakam is bricking open 3s he made in the pressure less regular season.

Middleton is definitely more dangerous because hes actually played better against higher odds.

The Bucks are pretty damn stacked. I wasn't 100% sold if Giannis would translate from regular season MVP to playoff caliber MVP but so far he has been playing pretty well.
