Prop Pick

The New York Knicks lead the NBA Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Indiana Pacers 1-0. They won Game 1 with the score 121-117, in a game in which Jalen Brunson scored 43 points.

This was his fourth straight game in which he went over 40 points. And just before that, he scored 39 points. Obviously, this guy is in brilliant form, and the Indiana Pacers know it. If they want to make it 1-1 in the series, they need to stop Brunson tonight.

The trouble is that they’re not great defensively. In fact, they only conceded under 100 in three games in 2024.

However, this is a super-important game for the Pacers, which is why they might do better defensively than before. The thing is that they haven’t reached the Conference Final in 10 years. To get there, they need to stop Brunson from going over 36.5.
