Klay Thompson is the one star player that has not gone off during the 2022 NBA Finals.
Thompson's shot volume is there and it feels like it is only a matter of time before he delivers a standout performance.
Thompson's player prop lines at DraftKings Sportsbook dipped a bit ahead of Game 3 because of his low shooting percentages.
I'd hate myself if I did not buy the dip on Thompson's prop totals and he goes off inside TD Garden on Wednesday night, so I'm sticking with him win or lose.
I'm not putting all of my cash behind Thompson and Thompson only on Wednesday night. There are a few other props that I want to run with from the supporting casts of both teams.
Klay Thompson Over 19.5 Points (+105)
Klay Thompson 3+ Threes Made In First Half (+270)
Klay Thompson 15+ Points in First Half (+450)
Golden State needs to get Klay Thompson going.
The Warriors coaching staff is more than aware of that since they kept Thompson out on the floor in the fourth quarter of Game 2 in an attempt to find his groove.
Thompson is 10-for-33 from the field and 4-for-15 from three-point range in the series. The shot volume is there, and once he makes some shots, the point total will be come with it.
Golden State could use a breakout game from Thompson on the road in Boston to counter what the Celtics did in Game 1 in San Francisco.
I'm also sprinkling on a few player prop specials on DraftKings because I believe the Warriors will try to get Thompson into a groove early in the contest.
Marcus Smart Over 13.5 Points (-110)
Marcus Smart has 14 or more points in three of his last four postseason games.
If you go further back into the postseason numbers, Smart went over this number in five of the last seven and 11 times in four postseason series.
Boston needs the supporting cast around Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown to produce in the scoring column and Smart has proved that he can do that throughout the postseason.
Kevon Looney Over 0.5 Blocks (+105)
Kevon Looney is second in the series in blocks with four.
The Warriors center leads the Western Conference champion in that category through two games.
Looney is playing a significant amount of minutes and he usually does not leave the area around the rim when he is on the court.
I don't usually dive into steals and blocks props, but I'm willing to take the risk at plus money on a prop that seems to be easily attainable based on the stats from the first two games.
