The NBA Finals start Tuesday night right here in Phoenix!

Nobody knows what will happen, but that doesn’t stop people from offering opinions on what will happen.

Who do you think will be the leading scorer in the series between the Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns? Will it be Devin Booker, Chris Paul, Giannis Antetokounmpo or Khris Middleton?

Whomever it is, they’ll add their name to an impressive list of players who have averaged the most points in each Finals series since 1980.

And that’s your Trivia Tuesday task this week — name the leading scorer (in terms of points per game) in each of the last 41 NBA Finals.

We’ve given you the year, the team each player did it for and their scoring average in that year’s Finals — all you have to do is name the scorer.

You’ve got eight minutes on the clock. Enjoy the NBA Finals and good luck!
