P.J. Tucker (MIA) Over 5.5 Rebounds

PJ Tucker is someone I’ve been targeting so far this playoffs, and he's only getting better. While Miami was more experimental with their lineups, the injury of Kyle Lowry and the series becoming closer has seen an increase of PJ Tucker minutes these last two games. Tucker grabbed 5 and 6 in the first two games playing 24 minutes, but seeing 28 and 33 the last two has increased that production, resulting in 7 & 8. Tuckers defensive versatility makes him a key playoff piece, and his rebounding on both the offense and defense should show tonight. 

P.J. Tucker (MIA) Over 4.5 Rebounds/Over 0.5 3PM

Staying on the Tucker bandwagon, let's target another stat category he’s known for. When it comes to their corner 3, you're not gonna find many guys more committed to a show than Tucker is. Tucker has a 3PM in 4/4 games this series and will continue to faithfully plant himself in the corner on offense during this series. Tucker has an 100% hit rate on both of these props this series, and I’m expecting Tucker to continue to ball for offensive rebounds, take corner three’s, and play great defense. 

Jimmy Butler (MIA) Over 0.5 3PM/Over 0.5 Steals

Moving on to another reliable guy, it looks like the books finally caught up. While its early and there will be better combinations, I really like Jimmy Butler 3. If you add a PJ Tucker 3 into this mold, you get +135 which I also like. Butler is an incredibly clutch player, and while you wouldn't catch me dead playing his 3PM during the season, he really comes alive in the postseason. Butler has 1+ 3PM and 2+ steals in every game this series, even the blowouts. With the Hawks backs against the Wall, I’m expecting a closer game, and more offensive opportunities for Butler to carry his team, especially with Lowry out.
