Jrue Holiday is once again putting together a productive-yet-under-appreciated season for the reigning champion Bucks. He’s averaging 24.8 points and assists on career high shooting numbers (50.9% from the field and 41.5% from three).
With the Bucks coming into tonight’s matchup relatively healthy, it’s important to assess Holiday’s performance when he’s played alongside his All-Star teammates, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton.
In the last 25 games the trio has been in Milwaukee’s starting lineup, the Bucks point guard has produced to the tune of 25.6 points and assists, eclipsing this line in 15 of 25 games.
Now, I’ve been a staunch supporter of fading point guards against the stellar Heat defense all season. However, Holiday likely will see the more favorable individual matchup among the Bucks’ big three.
Giannis, unsurprisingly, will command plenty of attention from the likes of Bam Adebayo and PJ Tucker, while Middleton should see plenty of Jimmy Butler.
With Kyle Lowry out for the Heat, I like Holiday to take advantage.
Pick: Jrue Holiday over 24.5 points + assists (-120)
