The NBA is recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic hangover that slowed down the world. The 2019-20 NBA regular season ended with the victory of the LA Lakers. Now speculations are going around everywhere about who is hitting the free agency and who will join which team.
We are already covering the topic of NBA trade rumors extensively and the list of potential players from each team that will leave their current franchise to join others. In this article, we will discuss who are the best point guards in the league at the moment.
Best 5 Point Guard Players of the NBA
If you have been following the NBA for some time, you must have seen how a point guard’s position is evolving with time. The main reason behind it is to have control over your team’s pace while managing the offense. The point guards are who decide the attacking strategy of the team. So without further ado, see who the top 5 point guards in the NBA are now.
#5 Damian Lillard
He’s one of the top 5 point guards that we have in the NBA. Damian has been showing us his extremely talented performance for five years. He excellently played the two last seasons. Because of Lillard’s hard work, the Portland Trail Blazers were able to climb up the ladder of Western Conference Finals last year and made it to the NBA 2020 Playoffs.
Lillard is a good passer too. He’s scored an average of 33 points and eight assists for the 2019-20 season. His shooting game has been improving since he made over 45% and shot the ball with 40% from the three-point line.
#4 Luka Doncic
Luka Doncic is the second player that deserves the place on the list. Last year he was a shooting guard, and this year, he played the role of the point guard. He’s a better point guard, though.
Doncic was previously playing for Real Madrid, and that explains his phenomenal record as a player. He was awarded Rookie of the Year in 2019-20. He’s 29 points, nine assists, with nine rebounds during the regular season of 2019-20.
If you are interested in details, he managed to shoot 46% from three-point, while a whopping 75% from the FT line. He’s the first youngest player in the league to get 17 triple-doubles in that year.
#3 Chris Paul
Can you even make a list of point guards without including Chris Paul? He’s 35 but still a top point guard in the league. If it weren’t for Paul, the Oklahoma City Thunder wouldn’t have made it to the NBA 2020 Playoffs. With 17.6 points, five rebounds, and seven assists with a 49% shooting score, he’s a perfect fit for the list. We hope for him to dominate the place for the upcoming few years.
#2 Russell Westbrook
Now, we are talking about players with MVP-potential. Russell Westbrook is one of the best point guards in the NBA. He couldn’t deliver the best performance last season because he played with James Harden but didn’t stop him from scoring 27 points, seven assists, eight rebounds, 25% shooting from the three-point line, and 47% from the arena.
#1 Best NBA Point Guard: Stephen Curry
The real MVP when it comes to point guard selection is Stephen Curry. He’s the best of all in the NBA league. He only played five matches in the recent season, but nobody can topple his place in the league. He has an impressive record of 25.6 points, seven assists, and five rebounds.
He also managed two steals in the game. He scored 47% shots from the field, 90% from the FT line, and 43% from three-point. After returning from the injury recovery, he’s expected to be the top contender for the MVP Awards of the upcoming season.
