Anthony Edwards (SG) vs. Kevin Durant (PF)

Along with Anthony Edwards, the reigning two-way player for the Timberwolves, who has been a key player for the team, has averaged figures of 25.9 points and 5.1 assists per game this season. He averages (1.3 spg) and he is a great player on both ends of the floor which guarantees him these assets.

With him, the Suns have reinforcement and as always his able to give the team the lift they need to win playoff games. Durant’s 1.2 blocks on average per game is just as important as the small edge the Suns are gaining defensively.
