I feel like I'm buying low on player prop stocks for Tuesday's NBA slate.
The stars will likely shine in the trio of contests, but I feel like there are some spots to take advantage of further down the depth chart.
Kevin Huerter needs to score for the Atlanta Hawks to attack the Miami Heat with their best possible offense. He had success against Miami in the regular season and I'm willing to buy his dip on the prop market.
Brandon Clarke could be poised for a larger role in the Memphis rotation due to Steven Adams' struggles. He played the most minutes off the Grizzlies bench in Game 1.
Cameron Johnson was also the most-used bench player for the Phoenix Suns on Sunday. He will be the Suns' primary bench scorer and he comes into Game 2 with a good amount of confidence after his play in the series opener.
NBA Playoff Player Props
Overall Record: 10-9 (3-1 Monday)
Kevin Huerter Over 11.5 Points (-120)
I feel like I'm buying low on Kevin Huerter stock.
Huerter's point prop dropped by two for Game 2 compared to Game 1.
The Atlanta three-point ace only had eight points in Game 1, but most of the Hawks offense looked like trash on Sunday.
Huerter scored 15 or more points in three of his four regular-season contests against Miami.
He attempted eight field goals and went 2-for-6 from three-point range. The shot volume is there and I would expect the Hawks to shoot better after some much-needed rest in the same city.
Brandon Clarke Over 6.5 Rebounds (+110)
Brandon Clarke was Memphis' main beneficiary of Steven Adams looking flat out awful against Minnesota.
Memphis needs to find a way to deal with Adams' struggles on the defensive end, whether it be more minutes for Clarke, or a different defensive assignment for Adams.
Clarke received 27 minutes off the bench in Game 1, which was three more minutes than Adams played and by far the most of any bench player.
Clarke pulled down 12 rebounds on Sunday. That is why I'm willing to give him a look in this spot, especially if the Grizzlies abandon Adams once again.
Memphis needs to win Game 2 on its home floor and a player like Clarke could be vital to that success.
Cameron Johnson Over 10.5 Points (-120)
Cameron Johnson was the only Phoenix player to feature in over 20 minutes in Game 1 against New Orleans.
Johnson scored 13 points and made five of his six field-goal attempts.
He will be vital in the first three quarters to keep up the Suns' offensive pace before Chris Paul and Devin Booker take over in the fourth quarter.
Johnson could play an even larger role in the scoring department if Jae Crowder continues to struggle. Crowder had a single point in Game 1.
