NBA All-Star Game 2019: Analyzing the starting lineup of Team Giannis
The NBA All-Star weekend is just around the corner and it promises to be an exciting one. The weekend's marquee event is the All-Star Game and this year, Team LeBron will go up against Team Giannis.
This year's NBA All-Star Game draft was televised and both the captains chose their team from a pool of starters and reserves. Let us take a look at the starting lineup of Team Giannis.
Stephen Curry - G
Stephen Curry will be in his sixth straight All-Star Game and it will be an emotional one for him as he grew up in Charlotte. Curry has been at his usual best this season, averaging 28.7 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game.
The Warriors struggled to win games very early in the season but are back at the top of the Western Conference Standings. With DeMarcus Cousins finally making his debut for the Warriors, they look deadly and have been causing a lot of problems for the oppositions.
All the Warriors' starters have been playing their role to perfection but it is Curry once again who has been the center of attraction. He is shooting at a breath-taking rate from inside and behind the arc.
The Big 3 of the Warriors are all averaging over 20 points per game this season and the Warriors lead the association in offensive rating with 116.0. Their three-point shooting has also been stellar as they are placed second with a shooting percentage of 38.7.
The Warriors have three players representing the franchise at this year's All-Star Game. While Stephen Curry is part of Team Giannis, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson will play for Team LeBron.
