Tristan Thompson Under 6.5 points (-115 at Bovada)

8 p.m. ET | ABC

Thompson was a key member of the Cavs rotation during the Celtics series, but he doesn’t figure to be nearly as important against the Warriors. Golden State play much smaller and faster than Boston, so the Cavs could continue to opt to replace Thompson with more perimeter shooting during this series after he saw just 20 minutes in Game 1. Thompson scored just two points in that game, and he’s averaged just 5.8 points in approximately 20 minutes per game during the postseason.
