The Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics enter tonight’s pivotal Game 5 tied 2-2. The 76ers escaped with the win in Game 4 to keep their series hopes alive.
It would have been tough for Philadelphia to overcome a 3-1 deficit with the last two games being played in Boston, but at 2 – 2, the Sixers have a great chance to get the upset. Boston will be relying on their stars, such as Jayson Tatum, to prevent the upset.
Jayson Tatum (Boston Celtics)
Jayson Tatum averaged 4.6 assists per game for the regular season, but during the postseason that number has jumped to 5.1 assists per game.
Tatum has gone over tonight’s total of 4.5 assists in five of his last six games. Over that six-game span, he is averaging 5.7 assists per game. Our first player prop for the evening is Jayson Tatum Over 5.5 assists.
NBA Prop Pick: Jayson Tatum Over 4.5 Assists (-139) at BetMGM
The Celtics will need a big game from both of their stars tonight if they are to take control of the series.
We just took a prop on Jayson Tatum; now let’s take a solid prop on his counterpart Jaylen Brown. Brown has arguably been the best player for the Celtics in these playoffs, and his player props have been a gold mine.
Jaylen Brown (Boston Celtics)
Jaylen Brown has exceeded tonight’s three-point prop of 2.5 3-pointers made in six of his last seven games, averaging 3.1 3-pointers made over that seven-game span.
Brown’s ability to knock down the open three-point shot has been crucial in the Celtics’ two wins in the series. If the Celtics are going to get their third win of the series tonight, Brown will need to have a big game.
I expect Brown and the Celtics to bounce back and Brown will go over his three-point prop tonight.

The Denver Nuggets and the Phoenix Suns play tonight in what has been the most exciting series of the second round so far. The games have been high scoring and the action has been fast-paced and frenetic. If you love offensive basketball, you love the series between the Suns and the Nuggets.
I expect another high scoring game tonight when these two offensive juggernauts take the floor.
Devin Booker (Phoenix Suns)
Devin Booker has gone over tonight’s prop of 2.5 3-pointers made in seven of his last eight games. He averages 3.2 3-pointers made per game over that 8-game span.
Booker has gone over tonight’s 3-pointers made total in seven of the nine playoff games he has participated in so far. Expect to see another big night from Booker behind the arc as he goes over his three-pointers made prop.
