The model knows Dallas guard Luka Doncic is an all-around stud in the backcourt. Doncic is a solid rebounder with terrific court vision and a lethal offensive arsenal. The three-time All-Star returned from a calf injury halfway through the first-round series against Utah Jazz and didn't miss a beat. Doncic is averaging 29 points, 10.7 rebounds and 5.7 assists per game during the postseason.

Paul orchestrates the offense with ease and is fearless when driving down the lane to either score or dish the rock. The 12-time All-Star is also money from mid-range and knows how to consistently get to his spots on the floor. Paul is averaging 22.3 points and a team-high 11.3 assists per game.
