Klay Thompson (SG) vs. LeBron James (SF)

Klay Thompson, the shooting guard from the Golden State Warriors, is one of the key players for the team, and this season he has shown everyone he is capable of 61 games played and starting in 52 of them. Spending an average of 29.7 minutes on court, Thompson is giving 17.2 points per game that makes his vital role in Warriors offense evident. Even though he is such a skillful player, his difficulty is to keep scoring against experienced teams.

On the other side, LeBron James, the Lakers’ small forward, who cannot be stopped to continue his great game. With playing every game of the season for a total of 57 and being on the floor for 35.1 minutes per game, James stood out with his 25.3 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 8 assists on average. His leadership ability, as well as versatility, is what makes him a force to be reckoned with, although the fact that he commits 3.2 turnovers a game could not go unmentioned.

Whenever Thompson and James go into a confrontation, the duel is between the one with the flawless shooting and that of the well-rounded one. While Thompson’s three-point shooting is an area to test for the Lakers’ defense, James’ versatility should be of concern to the Warriors in many aspects. The players match up in the key position to bring in the individual talent as well as the strategic dynamics to their team.

Warriors’ Offensive Firepower

The Golden State Warriors’ offense warrants a standing ovation, averaging 118.5 points per game with a 47.2% field goal percentage. They are more selective with their shots, only shooting 14.9 three-pointers, per game which shows their outside game focus. The Warriors are always good at scoring and at the same time they also capitalize on them, which makes the offensive game of the Warriors an important part of their success. The Lakers’ obstacle will be to balance their elevated offense with a defensive effort that can match the Clippers’ equally powerful offense.

Lakers’ Balanced Assault

An excellent offensive game from the Los Angeles Lakers is demonstrated by their average of 117.3 points per game on a fantastic gun of 49.8% field goals. Their game plan is based on interior (low post) scoring and opportunities coming from free throws, and this is why, they average 18.4 per game free throws made. The Lakers have been equally efficient in the offensive end as they have been smothering their opponents on the defensive side, especially in home games, which attests to the fundamental overall approach they possess.
