NBA Props for Tonight (9/11)
Raptors Forward Pascal Siakam
Under 1.5 Three-Pointers (-121 @ DraftKings)
Pascal Siakam has been one of the disappointments of this series, and through the six games, he’s gone 4-of-31 (12.9%) from deep. The forward has only hit two or more three-pointers once in his last seven and three times out of the last 10 overall.
Spicy P has been pretty bland all series long, averaging 15.2 PPG. He’s gone 0-for-7 from three the past two games and 2-of-20 (10%) in the series’s last three games.
The Celtics allow an NBA-best 30.6% from deep in the postseason and second-best 11.4 three-pointers made, right behind the Miami Heat’s 11.3. The series has also gone under the over/under total in six-of-seven games, and Game 7s are typically low-scoring affairs, giving me even more confidence this streak will continue.
- Compared to the semifinals versus Boston, Golden State is the only team Siakam shot worse from deep versus this entire year (0-of-7)
- Boston is holding power forwards to 2.02 made three-pointers on the season (6th)
In the regular season versus Boston, Siakam went 1-of-5 (20%) in the second meeting and 5-of-7 (71.4%) in the first. However, it was the second overall game of the season for Toronto, so take that with a grain of salt.
It’s hard to see him hitting to in a tight, tense Game 7 environment.
This prop has hit in five-of-six (83.3%) games in the semifinals, seven-of-10 times (70%) in the postseason, and six-of-eight times (75%) versus Boston all year.
