Stat line: 22 points, 2 rebounds and a steal on 42.8% shooting

People have been sleeping on Fred VanVleet for much of the season and while he did have several impressive performances and showed immense potential, no one really expected him to perform the way he did in this series.

Whenever the Raptors needed a bucket, VanVleet delivered and has been a major scoring option for the team, off the bench. His scoring ability allowed Nick Nurse to send Kawhi and Lowry to the bench without worrying too much about the offense.

After scoring 11 points in the loss in Game 5, VanVleet scored 22 points in the series-clincher and played like he has been in the league for so many years. Everytime the Warriors cut the deficit or took the lead, VanVleet would score and answer back to keep the Raptors afloat.

The 25-year-old just finished his third season in the NBA (all with the Raptors), and is getting better every season.
