Who was it?
Without cheating it was Jrue, but possibly Khris. Jrue had that huge Game 5 I believe (as did Lopez).
Jrue's roller-coaster shooting aside, his defense and his assisting (I think he averaged nearly 11 for the playoffs) were huge.
Winner winner chicken dinner! Shockingly it was game 1 fresh off a terrible shooting series vs the nets he was in fire game one. Unfortunately, no one else could hit a shot. He was 5/12 from three and the only one to hit more than one three.
Bucks lost by 2-3pts so if just one other player could hit a jump shot we don't go down 0-1 early.
We remember Jrue for his awful shooting that playoff run, but forget he had some hot nights too.
I don't think people on here overlook when Holiday is a positive. He made huge plays and we wouldn't have won the finals without him. It was worth it cause we won, but my god we would be arguing who we should trade him for right now on negative value if we either lost to the Nets or if Trae isn't hurt (big if considering we factored Giannis being hurt so can't have it both ways I guess).
He was horribly inconsistent and could've easily been the scrap goat for the playoffs. He allowed Trae to score 48 in that game 1 loss (though he was eating up the Lopez switch), Game 3 against the nets with our backs against the wall we won by 3 despite him being 4/14 in 45 min, Game 1 he was 7/19 in a game that a nail biter going into half, etc. Imagine we lost Game 7 with Holiday going 5/23? This board would be over him so quickly. I'm not nit-picking either. He shot 41% from the field and 30% from 3 on 17 shots a game as the 3rd option. That just isn't good enough.
Maybe it isn't fair to expect that much from him but dude is getting paid the max (22nd highest paid guy in the league). You can't have a guy making that much money being so inconsistent when it matters.
