Which player are you the most impressed with so far, and why?

Lasaitis: I have to go for Steph Curry. For every game that I see Steph play, he rockets up my favorite players list. With David Lee out, Curry has carried the Warriors and helped them steal a game on the road, as well as jump out to a 2-1 lead in the series. He is averaging 26 points per game in the playoffs, which has him ranked fourth. He also leads everyone in assists per game in the postseason, with 11 per game. Steph’s 44.4 3P% ranks him second only to Carmelo Anthony (min. 15 attempts). Curry is dominant statistically and he is doing all the right things on the court.

Walker: Mike Conley. His shooting numbers have been bad and he had a horrible Game One but his play the last two has helped Memphis keep the series competitive. Having to combat Chris Paul’s production is nearly an impossible task for any point guard but Conley has excelled in running the offense and keeping the Grizzlies’ half court sets effective. Conley has done nothing but impress since his questionable contract extension and continues his very good play in this postseason.

Most disappointing series…?
