We continue our countdown of the top 20 NBA players of the postseason. Continue to comment on numbers 16-20 and feel free to make suggestions on who you feel should be in the Top 10. Now we present to you numbers 11-15.
15. Danny Granger, Indiana Pacers- Granger averaged 21.4 points and seven rebounds against the Orlando Magic, which they were able to put away in five games. He also led the charge as the Pacers attempted to play "Big Boy Basketball" against the Miami Heat, that attempt failed and Indiana was sent packing after six games.
14. Rudy Gay, Memphis Grizzlies- Gay averaged 19 points and 6.6 rebounds in the Grizzlies' only round of postseason play. When Memphis needed a big play or someone to step up, they looked to Gay to come through in the clutch.
13. Blake Griffin, Los Angeles Clippers- Blake Griffin averaged 19.1 points and 6.9 rebounds per game in the playoffs. He showed a lot of potential and dealt with a number of minor injuries. He also exposed some flaws in his game that he needs to patch up before the Clippers make another run at the title next season.
12. Tim Duncan, San Antonio Spurs- Duncan helped the Spurs make it to the Western Conference Finals, averaging 17.4 points and 9.4 rebounds a game in the playoffs. He showed flashes of his younger days and there were other times where he looked like a 14 year vet who couldn't keep up with some of the younger big men.
11. Carmelo Anthony, New York Knicks- Melo averaged 27.8 points and 8.2 rebounds as the Knicks were defeated by the Miami Heat. In the only win for New York, Anthony scored 41 points and willed his team to the victory. The more time that the Knicks have together, the more dangerous they could be.
