The NBA returns Sunday after a brief hiatus with Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Here are three props on my radar for Sunday’s 3:30 p.m. ET contest between the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers:

  • George Hill (Cleveland) over/under 2.5 assists
  • Terry Rozier (Boston) over/under 18.5 points
  • Jeff Green (Cleveland) over/under 8.5 points

George Hill Over 2.5 Assists (-125)

Hill has become an increasingly important part of the Cavs rotation as the playoffs have progressed. He’s played at least 28 minutes in each of his past four games, topping 34 minutes in two of them. He’s handed out at least three assists in three of his past five games, so this line feels a touch too low.

Terry Rozier Under 18.5 Points (-105)

Rozier has put up a few massive games during this postseason, but that majority of those have come with Jaylen Brown out of the lineup or limited. Rozier went for 26 and 29 points in Game 7 of the Bucks series and Game 1 of the 76ers series, respectively — the two games that Brown essentially missed — but has been at 18 or less in all but one of his past four games, including each of his past three.

Jeff Green Over 8.5 Points (-125)

Green only played 16 minutes in Cleveland’s blowout win over the Raptors in Game 4, but that number likely would’ve been higher if the game had stayed competitive. Green was playing closer to 30 minutes for the majority of the series, and he scored at least 11 points in each of the first three games of the series. He could also see a bigger role in this series with the Celtics playing more forwards than traditional big men.

All lines accurate as of 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, May 13.
