Jaren Jackson Jr. | Steven Adams | Desmond Bane
|Prop||Jackson (+500) | Adams (+1000) | Bane 3-Pointer (+1200)|
|Matchup||Grizzlies vs. Warriors|
|Time||10 p.m. ET|
|Book||WynnBet | BetMGM|
The Warriors host a Grizzlies squad without Ja Morant in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals. Steven Adams (78% opening-tip win) will be taking on Jonathan Kuminga, who has yet to win a tip this season for Golden State. Even if Jaren Jackson jumps for Memphis, they should easily win the tip.
The Grizzlies score first 59% of the time while the Warriors score first 38% of the time. The Grizzlies have also scored first in each of the five playoff games in this series. They mauled the Warriors in Game 5 as Tyus Jones, Jackson and Desmond Bane all topped 20 points. With Jones at point guard, the Grizzlies appear to be in more of a routine of trying to get the ball down low to start the game.
My best first basket play tonight is Jackson, but I’m going to add Adams as a bit of a lotto play. Lastly, I’ll take Bane’s 3-point exact method prop at even longer odds.
