Game 3 between the Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers carries some uncertainty as of Friday afternoon.
Joel Embiid cleared concussion protocol, but he has not been upgraded from out yet for the clash inside the Wells Fargo Center.
Embiid's presence affects the scoring totals of James Harden, Tobias Harris and Tyrese Maxey and it could limit Bam Adebayo's output, which in turn, could aid the scoring of Jimmy Butler and Kyle Lowry.
Even though there is a ton of uncertainty around the game, there is one angle you can feel comfortable with from a player prop perspective.
The Phoenix-Dallas nightcap has much more certainty surrounding it and there are some favorable prices on the three-point market worth taking advantage of.
NBA Playoff Player Props
James Harden Over 9.5 Assists
I took James Harden's assist prop before it went off the board.
Harden has not been a great scorer in the postseason and his assists will go up with Embiid back in the lineup.
This prop is projecting that Embiid will be on the floor in some capacity. If that is the case, Harden could easily reach the 10-assist mark.
Harden had nine assists in Game 2 without Embiid, so there is still a good chance he plays facilitator for Tobias Harris, Tyrese Maxey and Co.
Harden had 10+ assists in three of the six games against the Toronto Raptors. I would bet him up to 12 assists if you can if Embiid plays.
If not, Harden should still be the main passer in the Sixers offense and can reach the 10-assist mark if Harris and Maxey score a ton of points.
Reggie Bullock Over 2.5 Threes (+115)
You are not going to get a better price on Reggie Bullock's three-point prop for the rest of the postseason.
Bullock knocked down four three-pointers in Game 2 and the price on his prop went up.
Bullock attempted the second-most three-pointers on the Dallas roster behind Luka Doncic. The Mavericks need him to knock down multiple shots from deep in order to keep up with Phoenix's deep offense.
Bullock hit this prop in six of eight postseason games. He made two three-pointers in the other two contests.
Jae Crowder Over 1.5 Threes (-125)
Jae Crowder is 6-for-10 from three-point range against Dallas.
Crowder's shooting woes from the New Orleans series are behind him and there's no reason not to take the prop at this price on Friday.
Crowder has been more active inside the Phoenix offense since the return of Devin Booker. That is no surprise because it takes less pressure off Crowder and Mikal Bridges to replace the superstar's production.
Crowder is in a groove right now and I can't abandon one of my guys at the start of what could be a hot streak.
