WSN is the place to get the best NBA player props and betting picks every day throughout the 2024 NBA Playoffs.

The Boston Celtics took down the Cleveland Cavaliers 109-102 to take a 3-1 series lead while Donovan Mitchell and Jarrett Allen were forced to watch from the sidelines due to injury.

Then, the Oklahoma City Thunder roared back in the fourth quarter to steal Game Four from the Dallas Mavericks behind 34 points from Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, tying the series at two games apiece.

Here are our favorite NBA player prop picks for the playoffs on Tuesday.

Best NBA Prop Bets Today May 14 2024 Michael Porter Jr.

Andrew Nembhard Over 4.5 Assists (+136) at FanDuel

Nembhard is having himself quite the postseason, considering he averaged 9.2 points and 4.1 assists during the regular season. The Gonzaga product averaged 10 points and 4.8 assists in this series against the New York Knicks and 12.3 points and 4.7 assists for the playoffs overall.

The young guard hit the over four times in his last seven games and is taking on a Knicks squad that looked totally inept on offense and defense in Game Four. With the injuries piling up for NY, the biggest concern here is that another blowout prevents Nembhard from playing his usual minutes count and deprives him of assists opportunities.

Jalen Brunson Over 32.5 Points (+100) at FanDuel

Time to put up or shut up. Brunson has been simply phenomenal in the playoffs thus far but decreased his scoring total each of the last three games, going from 29, to 26, and 18 points. He won’t have a better opportunity to produce another masterclass than he will going home for Game Five behind a spirit NY crowd following two straight road losses.

The Knicks have been great at home throughout the playoffs and desperately need a win to avoid losing control of the series. OG Anunoby is out with a hamstring injury, meaning even more of the scoring burden will fall on the shoulders of the budding superstar who averaged 32.9 points for the postseason.

Michael Porter Jr. Over 15.5 Points (-115) at FanDuel

Porter Jr. has two bad games in the playoffs, but other than that, he’s been remarkable. The 25-year-old scored 20+ in two of four games in the series and at least 19 in every game of the first round against the Los Angeles Lakers, leading to him shooting 52.2 percent from the field and 46.8 percent from three in the playoffs.

The Denver Nuggets’ swingman only scored four points on four field goal attempts in Game Four but has been much better on average. With him and his team heading back home to Ball Arena with a chance for a third successive victory against the Minnesota Timberwolves, we expect to see the best of the young sharpshooter.

Jamal Murray 4.5 Rebounds (-115) at FanDuel

Murray hauled in five rebounds in Game Four and hit the over in five of nine playoff games in his bid for a back-to-back Finals run. He posted a playoff-career-high 13 rebounds in Game Two and only missed his line by one board when he grabbed four in Game Three.

The Timberwolves did not show up to Game Three or Game Four. They were especially poor shooting the ball the last time they were on the court (apart from Anthony Edwards) and, surprisingly, seem affected by Denver’s level of physicality. Murray has been active on the glass and should be there if Minnesota is off the mark again.

Josh Hart Under 15.5 Points (-128) at FanDuel

It felt like Hart didn’t even play in Game Four. He averaged about 13 rebounds per game for the playoffs heading into the second of two road games in Indy and left with just three rebounds, which showed his lack of mental and physical energy. He also scored just two points on 1-6 shooting as the Pacers trounced the Knicks.

Hart raised his scoring average from 9.4 in the regular season to 15.6 in the playoffs, but he has 12 total points in his last two games. There will be more pressure on him to score in the absence of Anunoby, but we’re worried that the physical strain demanded by Tom Thibodeau finally caught up to him.
