Lillard is coming off a monster performance in Game 1 that saw him score 34 points despite shooting just 10-for-25 from the field. He did drain five three-pointers and was a perfect 9-for-9 from the free-throw line, however, helping the Blazers take a 1-0 series lead. On top of his big scoring performance, he also dished out 13 assists across his 40 minutes. Lillard is one of the best playoff performers in the league, so I like his chances of having another huge game tonight, especially if his shooting improves a bit.

Nikola Jokić, Denver Nuggets vs. Portland Trail Blazers

Over 41.5 Points + Rebounds (-120)

Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.83 units)

Jokić was a one-man wrecking crew in Game 1, finishing with 34 points and 16 rebounds. He also attempted a whopping 27 shots from the field — a significant increase over his season average of 18.0 shot attempts per game. Portland’s defense had no answer for the likely NBA MVP, setting him up for another monster night as tries to help Denver even the series.

Bam Adebayo, Miami Heat at Milwaukee Bucks

Over 14.5 Assists + Rebounds (-112)

Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.89 units)

Player Prop

After shooting 57.0 percent from the field during the regular season, Adebayo struggled with his shot in Game 1, connecting on just 4 of his 15 field-goal attempts. On the bright side, he chipped in 12 rebounds and 5 assists, giving him at least 16 combined boards and assists in each of his last three games against Milwaukee. With the Bucks playing at the NBA’s second-fastest pace this year, Adebayo should have plenty more opportunities to stuff the stat sheet against them in Game 2.
