Anthony Davis (Los Angeles Lakers)
The Denver Nuggets were able to capture Game 1 of their Western Conference Final series against the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers have been the best team in the NBA since the All-Star break and will not go down quietly.
This prop has been money all postseason. We will continue to attack it until the books change the lines. Anthony Davis has gone over tonight’s prop total of 2.5 assists in five of his last six games. Over those six games, he averaged 3.3 assists per game.
Over the whole postseason, Davis is averaging 2.7 assists per game. He had three assists in Game 1.
Anthony Davis continues to exceed this assist prop total. We’re surprised that they have not moved the number higher. Yet until they do, we will continue to take advantage of it.

Jamal Murray (Denver Nuggets)
Jamal Murray was fantastic in the Denver Nuggets Game 1 win against the Los Angeles Lakers. Murray was 12-20 from the field for 31 points, five rebounds, and five assists. The Nuggets will need another big performance from Murray tonight if they are to get another win in Denver.
Jamal Murray is averaging 26.3 points per game over the playoffs. He’s shooting 47.2% from the field and 40.4% from three-point range this postseason. He has also been an impressive 92% from the free throw line, helping Murray go over his point prop total quite often.
Murray has gone over tonight’s point prop total in four of his last five games. His sharpshooting ability in the pick-and-roll action with Nikola Jokic has been fantastic.
As the defense collapses on Jokic, Murray has plenty of room to knock down the open shot. Murray has been taking advantage of these opportunities to help lead his team. He will do so again tonight.

Austin Reaves (Los Angeles Lakers)
Austin Reaves has become a central figure in the Los Angeles Lakers organization this season. Reaves endeared himself to fans with his tenacious play and sharp shooting ability. He is also been adept at grabbing rebounds to help his team on the defensive end.
Austin Reaves has gone over tonight’s total of 3.5 rebounds in 9 of his last 12 games. Over that 12-game span, he is averaging 4.7 rebounds per game.
In Game 1 against the Nuggets, Reaves only had two rebounds. We expect that number to be much higher tonight when he goes closer to his postseason average of 4.5 rebounds per game.
