With the impressive performance that Jamal Murray displayed in the NBA playoffs and finals, it begs the question of if he is a top 5 point guard now in the NBA? Some players are questionable if they are point guards or not, but we counted most of the borderline point guards for these rankings below.
5. Jamal Murray
Following his playoff and finals performance he has to make the top five. In the regular season he would have barely cracked the top 10 but now he makes the top five. He averaged 32.5 points in the Western Conference Finals and then 10 assists per game in the finals after hurting his hand that effected his shot.
4. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
SGA took a huge leap this year to an All Star and nearly was able to almost single handily get OKC to the play-in games. A 31, 5, and 5 stat line is insane and speaks for itself. Is Josh Giddey the point guard or SGA though? They are both listed as so.
3. Dame Lillard
Another massive season for Lillard is in the books with nothing to show for it for the team. Portland actually was consistently making the playoffs for a long time until recently but 32, 7, and 5 shooting over 37% from three, over 46 from the field, and over 91 from free throw is too impressive to ding him too much for being on a bad team this year.
2. Luka Doncic
It is clear that Luka Doncic is elite, yet people want to already knock him down on lists like this because of one bad season by the Mavericks. Still he averaged over 32,8, and 8 which is ridiculous. Is he the point guard with Kyrie Irving on the team though?
1. Stephen Curry
He gets better with age it seems. We saw some insane playoff performances from Curry and he had solid numbers during the regular season with over 29, 6, and 6 while shooting over 42% from three and 49 from the field. A 50-point game in game 7 of the first round reminded everyone that he is still the best point guard in the league.
