The model knows that Phoenix guard Chris Paul brings a veteran edge to the floor. Paul is a floor general and gets everyone in the right positions on the court. The 12-time All-Star has a money shot from midrange and is fearless when he attacks the basket. Paul is averaging 18.2 points, 8.7 assists and 1.5 steals per game. The Wake Forest product should come out aggressive on the offensive end and set the tone.
The model also knows that Dallas shooting guard Jalen Brunson is a quick and solid scoring option. Brunson can regularly get past his defender to knock down a jump shot from midrange or finish at the rim. The Villanova product is solid in all respects and has been a constant contributor. Brunson is averaging 22.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game. In his last outing, he had 18 points and three steals.
