The final Western Conference semi-final series between the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers is set to go down tonight in the Bay Area. At the same time, we have Game 2 between the Miami Heat and the New York Knicks. You guys can find my picks on the side and total on my Twitter page (@Rockk24), but for now, let’s take a look at my favorite NBA playoff player prop bets for tonight.

NBA Playoff Player Prop Bets – Tuesday, May 2nd
Gabe Vincent Over 2.5 3PT M (-113)
Gabe Vincent had a nice Game 1 on the road, hitting some big-time shots. He knocked down five threes and had 20 points in a win. Vincent is one of Miami’s most consistent three-point shooters right now.
Vincent has had three or more shots from deep in four of the 6sixgames he’s played. I think he continues to be aggressive tonight, especially with Jimmy Butler’s status up in the air. In the playoffs, more than half of his attempts per game are three-pointers. Vincent has gone over this number in three straight games vs. the Knicks. I think he has a great chance of going over this number again tonight.
Jordan Poole Over 4.5 Reb+Ast (-125)
Jordan Poole hasn’t had the most productive start to the playoffs. Just averaging 12 points per game and shooting 33.8% from the field. So instead of looking for a bounce-back spot, I will target his rebound and assist prop.
This postseason, Poole is averaging 2.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game. He’s gone over this number in four of seven games in the playoffs, including clearing this number four times in four games vs. the Lakers this season. Against the Lakers this season, Poole is averaging 2.8 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game. He loves playing against the Lakers, and at home, I expect a big game from the kid from Michigan.
Other Player Props I’m Eyeing:
Jordan Poole Over 2.5 Assists (-104)
LeBron James Over 9.5 Rebounds (-111)
Anthony Davis Over 4.5 Stl+Blk (+125)
