Winner: OG Anunoby
Between improved offensive efficiency and his trademark on-ball defense being so dominant it earned a postgame shoutout from his head coach, things are really looking up for Anunoby as he heads into what could be the final year of his Raptors tenure.
Anunoby’s 46 points in four games may not sound like world-beating numbers, but his 61% field goal percentage and 47% 3-point percentage are both marks that would make Masai Ujiri and the rest of the Toronto front office swoon into complete unconsciousness.
OG Anunoby looks ready to lead the Toronto Raptors.
As much as things change, the more things stay the same. Even with all of the pieces around him being different, the popular trade target once again finds himself in a third-banana position that will see him conceding touches and offensive responsibility to Siakam and Barnes.
All OG can do to improve his value is put his head down and play like a demon on both sides of the ball. After making Jordan Poole look like a rookie and putting up efficiency numbers that he has never reached at any prior point in his career, Anunoby is off to a good start.
