Andre Iguodala Under 8 Points (-115)

8 p.m. ET | TNT

Iguodala came through for me on Wednesday with an under and I’m going back to the well again. He’s posted an average usage rate of just 12.3% during the postseason, resulting in an average of just 7.8 points per game. He’s averaged 8.0 points per game to start this series, but that number is inflated by a Game 1 performance in which he made seven free throws. There is also some speculation that Kevon Looney could replace Iguodala in the starting lineup, which could result in a decrease in playing time.

Kevin Durant Under 7.5 Rebounds (-115)

8 p.m. ET | TNT

Durant has averaged 7.2 rebounds per game during the postseason, but he doesn’t appear to have the same kind of rebounding upside in this series. He’s managed just six total rebounds through the first two games and failed to exceed 7.5 rebounds in both of his regular-season meetings with the Rockets as well.

Stephen Curry Over 5.5 Assists (-150)

8 p.m. ET | TNT

You have to lay a decent amount of juice with this prop, but Curry should be able to record the six assists needed. He’s handed out at least seven assists in each of his past three games, and he averaged 6.1 assists per game during the regular season despite averaging just 32 minutes of playing time. Curry should see closer to 38 minutes in Sunday’s contest assuming it stays competitive.

All lines accurate as of 12:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, May 20.
