We’re now four weeks into the playoffs, and it’s down to four teams: the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference and the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference. At Bleacher Report, we’re picking an All-NBA team for each week of the postseason.
Selections were mostly based on the best overall stats for the week, but other factors such as defense, winning and losing and performance in closeout games were also considered.
It was hard to determine how much credit to give players who were sent home. I ended up deciding to count those players but factor in that they lost.
Please note that only this week’s games, May 9-15, were considered. The games that preceded the specified dates are not factored in, although they may be alluded to. Here are the stats for the dates included from NBA.com/STATS. And, here are the players who stood out the most.
