Darius Garland has been a stellar second option for the Cleveland Cavaliers as they've climbed to third place in the Eastern Conference. At bet365, Garland is a -115 to clear 19.5 points when he faces the Milwaukee Bucks.
On the season, Garland is averaging 20.6 points, 8.0 assists, and 2.7 rebounds on 43.0% shooting from the field and 38.2% from three-point range. But he's been a bit more reserved over his last five games, averaging just 17.0 points, 9.0 assists, and 4.6 rebounds over that span of time. When he faces the Bucks for the third time this season, Garland's scoring will be crucial.
In two games against the Bucks, Garland has averaged 21.5 points and has hit six threes. He's also cleared 19.5 points in 12 of his 26 games this season. Given the paint presence of Milwaukee, Garland's shooting will be the focus that carries him over 19.5 - fortunately, he's already hit six threes against the Bucks this season.
Indiana Pacers guard Tyrese Haliburton is putting up an All-Star caliber season in terms of his production. At DraftKings Sportsbook, Haliburton is a +140 to achieve a double-double when he takes on the Boston Celtics.
On the season, Haliburton is averaging 19.5 points, 10.7 assists, and 4.0 rebounds on 47.0% shooting from the field and 38.5% shooting from three-point range. However over his last five games, he's averaged 19.4 points, 9.0 assists, and 1.8 rebounds on 44.3% shooting from the field and 36.8% shooting from three-point range. While his averages are slightly down, his matchup against the Celtics could work in his favor.
In 29 appearances this season, Haliburton has achieved a double-double in 18 of those games. He's also earned a double-double in his last two games. Considering the Celtics play a more traditional center with Horford and Williams in the lineup, Haliburton should thrive off of his playmaking at the point of attack.
Damian Lillard and his Portland Trail Blazers are looking for revenge after losing at the buzzer against the Oklahoma City Thunder. At PointsBet, Lillard is a +105 to hit over 4.5 three-pointers when he has his rematch against Oklahoma City.
On the season, Lillard is averaging 28.3 points, 7.0 assists, 3.8 rebounds, and 4.5 three-pointers per game. Over his last five games though, Lillard is averaging 30.4 points, 6.0 assists, 2.8 rebounds, and 6.4 threes on 51.6% shooting from the field and 50.0% shooting from three-point range. Lillard is on a very positive trend offensively.
Over Lillard's last five games, he's hit 32 threes. He's also cleared 4.5 threes in nine of his 19 appearances this season. With a focus on the second leg of their meeting with the Thunder, Lillard projects to have a big shooting night against a relatively weak defensive team in the Thunder.
