With only two games on this slate, making NBA DFS picks and lineups may be trickier than earlier in the season. So if looking for a different way to play NBA fantasy contests during the NBA playoffs, PrizePicks could be a site that interests you. Instead of building lineups of players, at PrizePicks you are making predictions on player stats or fantasy points, with more correct predictions meaning higher payouts.
PrizePicks provides a big list of stats and fantasy points, and you are able to pick and choose which you want to make a prediction for. Stringing together two to five picks can pay out up to 10 times your entry fee. You are even able to combine picks across different sports. The only rule is you must make picks for players on at least two different teams.
For the sake of this article, we will take you through four of the best NBA fantasy PrizePicks predictions to make for the NBA Playoffs Round 2 games today.
PrizePicks NBA Fantasy | Playoffs Round 2
It is important to note that, much like odds that update throughout the day, the player totals at PrizePicks are subject to change. So if you like these NBA picks below, it’s wise to jump on them quickly.
Paul George: Over 43.5 NBA Fantasy Points
PrizePicks uses the same NBA fantasy scoring format as FanDuel, so gamers can use past scores and today’s FanDuel projections to help with picking these contests. George had an off shooting night in Game 1, going 4-for-17. He scored 48 fantasy points or more in the three games prior. He scored over 45 fantasy points in five of his last seven games, so he should be expected to get back on track today.
Royce O’Neale: Over 6.5 Rebounds
O’Neale has been extremely productive for Utah in the playoffs. He has been an all-around contributor, but specifically he has totaled at least seven rebounds in four of his last five games. This includes 11 last game. While George should shoot a bit better, there should still be plenty of opportunities for rebounds.

Kyrie Irving: Over 6.5 Assists
With James Harden out again today, Irving will continue to be the primary ball handler for the Nets. This has resulted in a spike in his assists. He dished out eight assists in Game 1, then six last game. However, with a massive lead in Game 2, Irving did not have to play his full minutes, and he was less aggressive than normal. Assuming this game is more competitive considering the Nets are Vegas underdogs, Irving should show more aggressiveness, leading to more assists.
Bruce Brown: Over 9.5 Points
With Irving seeing plenty of Jrue Holiday defense in this game, he should be looking to set up his teammates often. One of these players will be Brown, who has scored at least 10 points in three of his last four games. He attempted 10 shots last game, showing that he has carved out a role in this offense alongside the typical starters. Brown is also active on the offensive boards, possibly leading to one or two easy buckets.
