I would recommend to go heavy CC against a Saw(aka a triple stun team) and he won't be able to do any damage and will just get bursted down. Also, Joule can be a very effective counter because if she manages to land her rocket leap, then her teammates and CC chain the saw and Joule herself has very powerful burst damage with critical strike items and can easy burst saw down before he can. However, if Joule can't land it, then she is dead meat.

Also, Celeste is one of the Best counters to saw, even better than Joule perhaps, due to the fact that when ever a team first picks a saw(that happens in pro play), they quickly ban away the Celeste due to her burst from an extremely far range(9 metres) means that Saw can't even reach Celeste before he has to retreat from her enormous poke and burst damage from her stars(supernovas are OP). Celeste can be paired up with Catherine or Phinn(although breaking point food) for some very nice CC chains.

Alpha works okay against a Saw with the proper support(aka crowd control heroes), her burst damage from her Prime directive is quite alot for Saw to handle.

Just make sure you don't engage too long, you either have to try to rush/burst him down, ambush him, or poke him out. If saw is picked first, Skaarf/Celeste are good(can both be on one team but you have to be good at kiting and have a lot of vision. Easiest way is to out vision them(don't be overaggressive and get ambushed tho). Once you get rid of their vision and have your own, you can play it safe and only engage when you're ready to. Best heroes against SAW are Catherine, Celeste, Skaarf, Ardan(double echo can be good for separating and bursting them down), and Reim. Others can work as well, such as Baron(you rely on your B and high lvl ult tho, so only late game), Alpha, Skye, and Kestrel(if they don't have much vision :P) but you have to be very good with them.

SAW? Just do whatever the other guys say. Burst the guy down, and watch his spin up. Remember he has attack speed boost when he has it, but also that he loses movement speed as well. Use that to your advantage.
