Michael Porter Jr. 3+ 3-Pointers Made (-140)
Michael Porter Jr. has been fantastic for the Nuggets throughout the playoffs. He effectively plays his role off of Nikola Jokic's offensive game and is averaging 8.8 3-point attempts over his past five games.
In Game 1, Porter Jr. benefited from Miami’s zone defense, which funnels outside shots. However, Porter Jr. shot just 18% on 3's, including going 1-for-7 on wide-open looks, per NBA Advanced Stats.
It was encouraging seeing that 11 of his 16 (69%) shots came from behind the arc. The volume is there and positive regression is expected in Game 2. Against a smaller Miami team, Porter Jr. can use his height advantage to get up shots, and with his efficiency, he should be able to shake off the rust and convert more opportunities.
Michael Porter Jr. 6+ Rebounds (-575)
Along with being a sharpshooter, Porter Jr. has found great success lately in the rebounding department. The 6’10” forward
is averaging 8.2 rebounds per game in the playoffs and has at least seven rebounds in eight of his past nine contests.
Over his past five games, Porter Jr. has notched a double-double four times, and his 14.8 rebound chances are second-most on the Nuggets, trailing only Nikola Jokic.
Sportsbooks have set his lines at 8.5 rebounds, but we're only asking him to grab six. In Game 1, Porter Jr. saw a team-high 21 rebound chances. He has earned Michael Malone's trust and should continue playing big minutes.
Jamal Murray 5+ Assists (-360)
Banking on Murray to be a playmaker has been a money maker throughout the playoffs. Murray has converted at least five assists in 15 of 16 games, including all nine home games.
In Game 1, Murray came out hot and shot 8-for-12 from the field, with three assists at halftime. In the second half, Miami adjusted and used Haywood Highsmith to guard him, which resulted in lower scoring and seven assists. It's also important to note that Murray finished the game with 17 potential assists.
Murray, for the first time in these playoffs, overtook Jokic by leading his team in touches (122.0) and passes made (93.0), foreshadowing a growing role as a facilitator for the remainder of this series.
