Raptors’ Pascal Siakam Takes Home Most Improved Player Award

The awards keep coming for the Toronto Raptors

On Monday night at the NBA Awards, Pascal Siakam took home the NBA’s Most Improved Player of the Year award after an incredible, All-Star calibre year. One of the league’s breakout stars, Siakam transformed into an integral piece of the Raptors championship run in the 2018-19 season.

Now, a cornerstone of the franchise, Siakam averaged 16.9 points and 6.9 rebounds per game while shooting 54.9 percent from the field and 36.9 percent from long range. Nearly a ten point jump from last year, Spicy P played in 80 games during the regular season and finished in the top-20 in league win shares (9.3).

Siakam’s play translated over into the playoffs where he was a dominant force in Round 1 against the Orlando Magic and came up huge against the Golden State Warriors in the Finals. Siakam scored 32 points on 14-for-17 shooting in Game 1 and helped the Raptors secure the championship in Game 6 with a 26 points and 10 rebound performance.

Siakam beat out D’Angelo Russell of the Brooklyn Nets and De’Aaron Fox of the Sacramento Kings.
