  • We’ve got two interesting NBA player props for you for Wednesday, May 15.
  • Will Jayson Tatum and the Celtics get the job done tonight by winning Game 5 against the Cavaliers?
  • Luka Doncic needs to start scoring more to help the Mavericks get a 3-2 lead over the Thunder.

Two games of the 2024 NBA playoffs are on the program today, namely, Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Boston Celtics and Dallas Mavericks vs. Oklahoma City Thunder.

In the first of those, Jayson Tatum and his teammates from Boston have a chance to get the job done by making it 4-1.

In the other one, either Dallas or Oklahoma will take the lead in the series. The Mavericks are favored to be the team to do it, one of the main reasons being that their superstar Luka Doncic looks to be back in his top shape.

Prop Pick

The Boston Celtics lead the series 3-1 meaning that they just need to win tonight to get themselves in the conference finals. Luckily for them, the game is played on their turf.

Another great news for the boys from Massachusetts is that their talisman Jayson Tatum is in a points-scoring mood. He scored 33 points in each of his last two games.

Given that both of those were played in Cleveland, it’s a huge achievement for the guy. Now he’s playing at TD Garden and we expect nothing less from him.

NBA Player PropOdds
Jayson Tatum Over 29.5 Points-108

Mavericks vs. Thunder

How to Watch

  • When: Wednesday, May 15, 2024, at 9:30 p.m. ET
  • Where: Paycom Center, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
  • Channel: TNT

Prop Pick

Luka Doncic was reportedly struggling with an injury for the last couple of days, but he still managed to put on some decent performances in the Mavericks vs. Thunder series.

In his last outing, he recorded a triple-double. However, we saw him score only 18 points which just isn’t enough for such a prolific scorer.

Knowing that his average in the regular season was 33.9 points per game, it’s only logical to assume he’s gonna do better this time.

Luka Doncic Over 27.5 Points-124
