On the even bigger stage I don't trust Siakam. Middleton also does a pretty good job guarding Kawhi based on 1 game earlier this regular season.
He wasn't scared, he just had Embiid guarding him who has the size and surprisingly the quickness to guard him well.
Embiid was giving him space like he's a Ben Simmons type shooter and he refused to take jumpshots. Game 7 he wasn't even looking to score he just gave the ball to Kawhi and set him screens.
To be fair, everyone was awful on O in game 7. Game 7 is a different type of game.
Kobe shot 6/24 against the Celtics, which is terrible, but doesn't necessarily go against the history of game 7s. Everyone is on edge.
Middleton hasn't played a game 7 this season yet.
As of now it's Middleton, but not by much.
Going to be such a fun series.
