PJ Tucker 1+ 3PM/1+ 1Q Rebound -130 (Bet $130 to win $100)

This number feels downright criminal. Tucker has been a pivotal role player throughout his whole career, and that's stayed true this postseason. Tucker is another player who benefits from playing with that Miami home crowd behind him. PJ has 1+ 3PM in 7 of 8 home playoff games this season, averaging 1.6 on 62% shooting. These playoffs have been absolutely ravaged by blowouts, but all we’re asking for here is 1 3PM, I expect Tucker to get the job done in a huge game. 

Tucker has also been very consistent on the boards, especially in the first quarter. I always say PJ Tucker is paid to do 3 things, play aggressive defense, hustle for rebounds, and shoot corner 3’s. PJ Tucker has 1+ 1Q rebounds in 4/4 games this series (averaging 2) and in 13 of 15 total playoff games. This leg will likely find its way in a lot of my plays today. 

Tucker/Tatum 1+ 1Q Rebound & Williams 1+ Block/Butler 1+ STL +105 (Bet $100 to win $105)

With blowouts galore, there have seemingly been two consistent categories, defense and 1Q rebounds. Tatum has recorded 1+ 1Q rebound in 14/15 playoff games averaging more than 2, he’s been extremely consistent and his one miss came in a game with 3 first quarter fouls. While Williams wasn't healthy in the Nets series, he has 2+ blocks in every playoff game since, I expect him to continue his shot blocking dominance today. Jimmy Butler finally missed a steal for the first time last game, but considering he had 1+ 13/14 playoff games and 2+ in 11/14, I expect him to continue to hit this number. I used my 50% DK Profit Boost on this one!
