NBA First Basket Prop Pick: Jaren Jackson Jr., Desmond Bane

The Memphis Grizzlies host the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 2 of their Western Conference series on Wednesday night. Jaren Jackson Jr. (77% opening tip win rate) will take on Anthony Davis (57% win rate) for the opening tip.  Jackson has won all three opening tips against Davis this season.

The Grizzlies have scored first in all four matchups with the Lakers this season, with Dillon Brooks, Xavier Tillman, Jackson and Ja Morant each cashing first basket tickets.

Morant is a game-time decision after leaving Game 1 with an injury to his right hand.  Regardless of whether Morant plays, I think the Grizzlies will have to lean heavily on Jackson and Desmond Bane if they want to win Game 2. Jackson and Bane combined to take the first shot in 50% of games started this season, so I like their chances to take cash a first basket ticket.

Pick: Jaren Jackson Jr. +490 – Down to +400 (.6 Units)
