By · Updated 4 mins ago
  • We’ve got two NBA player props for you for Tuesday, May 14, 2024.
  • Jalen Brunson needs to go crazy with his scoring to help the Knicks win the series.
  • Nikola Jokic must save Denver from losing three straight home games for the 1st time since 2021.

Two games of the 2024 NBA Playoffs are on the program today (May 14) but that’s more than enough if you’re into NBA player prop betting. The reason is that both games are crucial for the teams involved, so their star players have no other option but to give their maximum on the court.

We’re now going to analyze each of those games, explaining which players are supposed to put on a good show this evening.

Pacers vs. Knicks

How to Watch

  • When: Tuesday, May 14, 2024, at 8:00 p.m. ET
  • Where: Madison Square Garden, New York City, New York
  • Channel: TNT

Prop Pick

The Indiana Pacers vs. New York Knicks series is tied 2-2, with each time winning on home turf. The series is coming back to New York today, which is why it’s only logical to assume the Knicks are going to do well.

Given that in the 2024 postseason, they’ve been a sort of a one-man army with Jalen Brunson doing practically everything, we expect him to be in the spotlight tonight.

He scored only 18 points in the previous game, but before that, he looked unstoppable, even scoring 40 or more points four games in a row. Obviously, he’s got it in him for at least one more high-scoring performance in the 2024 postseason.

NBA Player PropOdds
Jalen Brunson Over 32.5 Points-103

Timberwolves vs. Nuggets

How to Watch

  • When: Tuesday, May 14, 2024, at 10:30 p.m. ET
  • Where: Ball Arena, Denver, Colorado
  • Channel: TNT

Prop Pick

The series is tied 2-2, with each team winning on the road. Losing two home games in a row is something that doesn’t happen too often to the Denver Nuggets. In fact, the defending champions experienced it only one other time this season.

Losing three times straight at Ball Arena is something that hasn’t happened to the Nuggets since 2021. If they don’t want it to happen this year, they need to put on their best performance this evening.

This goes especially for their biggest star, the newly crowned 2024 NBA MVP Nikola Jokic. The Serbian center has been great throughout the postseason, scoring 27.6 points per game on average, as well as averaging 14 rebounds and 9.1 assists.

If he wants to take Minnesota out of the competition, he needs to do even better than usual. That’s why our prop bet for the Timberwolves vs. Nuggets Game 5 is Nikola Jokic triple-double.

Nikola Jokic Triple-Double+178
