Deandre Ayton: Over 12.5 Rebounds
Deandre Ayton soaks up rebounds when he is on the floor, which is a lot. He has logged at least 38 minutes in three of the four games during this series and is averaging 14.0 boards per game as a result. He has double-digit rebounds in six of his last seven games, with the one failed attempt being nine rebounds in 24 minutes. With the Bucks projected to be losing, this also points to them attempting more long-range jump shots, leading to more easy rebounds for Ayton.
Khris Middleton: Over 2.5 Made 3’s
The Bucks are projecting to be losing, thus they would end up attempting more 3-pointers. This means great things for Khris Middleton, who is coming off a 40-point game. While Middleton’s offensive performances have been inconsistent throughout the playoffs, he has been knocking in 3-pointers recently. He has buried three-plus shots from deep in three of the four NBA Finals games. Middleton should continue connecting on 3-point attempts in Game 5.
