Just few hours before the 2019-20 playoff edition starts. So here is a list of 5 recommended centers that could bring a decent amount of points for your Dunkest Team. Superstars are not included because they’re expected to keep up the level of their efficient regular-season performances.
Bam Adebayo (16,2 cr – MIA)
According to the Miami Heat, Bam Adebayo is the youngest player ever to post at least 16 points – 50% FG -, 10 rebounds and 5 assists per game . He’s been of the most surprising player of the year because of his improvement and his ability to impact on the Heat team. His huge athletic peculiarities mixed with his court vision and his abilities to score make him one of the most dangerous player on the pitch and also provide a high fantasy score. The 23 years old big man has averaged 31.4 Dunkest points per game running for our top 5 centers of the playoff.
Serge Ibaka (11,2 cr – TOR)
Another high performing season for Serge Ibaka. The Toronto Raptors center has flirted with the double-double all season long posting 15.4 points and 8.4 rebounds per 55 games being of the most solid reasons of a great 2019-20 Raptors camping. His 51% FG, 38.5% from the three-point land, his physical size and his experience could be great features to convince the fantasy coaches to pick him up. The Playoff could be the right time to trust the 11 seasons veteran, considering that the Toronto Raptors will play against a young and inexperienced Brooklyn Nets team.
Steven Adams (12,7 cr – OKC)
Steven Adams is another intriguing choice for a starting center role. The New Zealander has the second highest Dunkest rating (23.8 PDK) of the Oklahoma City Thunder that could keep also in the post season. OKC will play against the Houston Rockets, a team that loves being on the floor with a very small line up. They don’t have a natural big men, the reason why the D’Antoni’s team could struggle guarding Adams on the defensive end. So Steven could be worth the starting line up spot as your center.
Nikola Vucevic (15,2 cr – ORL)
Nikola Vucevic has just ended his ninth season in the NBA, the sixth averaging a double-double and the second straight putting up at least 19 points and 10 rebounds per game. The Morges, Switzerland, native has touched 30 minutes per 7 games in the Orlando Bubble but he’s expected to play a bunch of minutes more to cover the absence of his teammate Mo Bamba, who has left the Walt Disney Resort because of some comprehensive post corona-virus evaluation. Vucevic has taken part to 3 of 4 matchups against the Milwaukee Bucks in the RS averaging 18.7 points, 9.6 rebounds, 4 assists and 30.8 PDK. Don’t underestimate the Orlando Magic big man.
Al Horford (10,8 cr – PHI)
Ben Simmons is out for the season, Al Horford could take a huge step into the starting line up as a power forward. So far, the big men hasn’t been able to perform like he – and the 76ers – would expect to but the absence of the young guy could give him the chance to show once again his value. His huge experience could be a support for Joel Embiid to lighten the weight of duties and responsibilities of the expectations starting from the first round against his former team Boston Celtics, a reason more he hopes to give his best. Philadelphia hope too.
