Jaren Jackson (MEM) Over 3.5 Steals/Blocks

Jaren Jackson Jr absolutely showed out on the defensive side of the ball, with seven blocks in only 24 minutes due to foul trouble. Assuming Jackson doesn't immediately run into foul trouble, his minutes are guaranteed to increase from Game 1 and he should continue to have plenty of opportunities. One of the biggest things we are noticing is that Steven Adams minutes will likely stay in the low twenties, due to the pace these two teams play at. Whenever Jackson has substantial minutes at the five he absolutely crushes this, expecting another good defensive game from JJJ.

Kyle Lowry/Jimmy Butler (MIA) Over 0.5 Steals

Really like that we are getting both of these Miami defenders for such a reasonable price, and you could probably add Heat ML in there if you’re feeling a bit frisker. Lowry had two steals in Game 1 of the series, is averaging 2.0 vs the Hawks this year, and has 1.1 per game on the season this year. Lowry is slated for 30+ minutes, and I’m expecting a closer game from the Hawks. Jimmy had three steals in the first game of the series, averaging 1.7 against the Hawks, and 1.6 on the regular season. Both of these guys are extremely consistent, and we're getting a good price here. 

Patrick Beverly/Anthony Edwards (MIN) Over 0.5 Steals

The Timberwolves have been impressive thus far in the playoffs, and the aggressive defense is a big reason why. Edwards has a steal in both playoff games so far, and Beverly has both a steal and a block. These teams are expected to continue to play at an extremely fast pace, and with a game total in the 240’s, we can expect some additional turnover opportunities. Beverly is averaging 1.2 on the regular season, 1.8 versus the Grizzlies, and is 2/2 in the postseason. Edwards is averaging 1.5 on the season, 1.0 vs the Grizzlies, and is also 2/2 in the postseason, I’m expecting the streak to continue.\
