- Stephen Curry – 25.3 ppg, 6.6 apg, 4.5 rpg
- Kyle Lowry – 22.4 ppg, 7. 0 apg, 4.8 rpg
- George Hill – 16.9 ppg, 4.2 apg, 3.4 rpg
- Jeff Teague – 15. 3 ppg, 7.8 apg, 4.0 rpg
- Jrue Holiday – 15.4 ppg, 7.3 apg, 3.9 rpg
- Derrick Rose – 18 ppg, 4.4 apg, 3.8 rpg
- Patty Mills – 9.5 ppg, 3.5 apg, 1.8 rpg
- Shaun Livingston – 5.1 ppg, 1.8 apg, 2.0 rpg
- Darren Collison – 13. 2 ppg, 4.6 apg, 2.2 rpg
- Deron Williams – 11.0 ppg, 5.6 apg, 2.3 rpg
