Donvan Mitchell and Georges Niang, Cleveland Cavaliers

The former franchise player for the Jazz, "Spida" Mitchell is now the lead guard for the Cleveland Cavaliers, and will be under a big microscope this postseason to see if he can lead a team deep into the playoffs.

Last year, his Cleveland playoff debut was disappointing, as the New York Knicks ousted them in a first round upset.

Though his scoring was down slighty (from 28.3 to 26.6 ppg), his all-around game improved, with career highs in rebounding (5.1 per game), assists (6.1), and steals (1.8). He made the All-Star game for the 5th consecutive year.

Niang has been a solid bench performer, with 9.4 points a night on 37.5% shooting from 3-point range this season. His ability to play off the ball is key to keeping teams from doubling up on Mitchell and Darius Garland.

For the Cavaliers to make their deepest playoff run since LeBron James roamed the sidelines, Mitchell will need to produce like he used to in Utah, maybe even a 50-point game for good measure. Niang will need to hit clutch 3 pointers and hustle as hard as he used to in Salt Lake City as a feel-good story from the G-League.
