The 2020-21 NBA Playoffs continue on Wednesday, June 16 with an exciting Game 5 matchup between the Los Angeles Clippers and Utah Jazz. This series is tied 2-2, and tonight's winner will gain a serious edge in advancing to the Western Conference Finals. However, the Clippers will have to try and win without Kawhi Leonard, who will miss Game 5 with a knee injury that could keep him out of the remainder of the series.

Here's a look at the three best player prop bets heading into Game 5 on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Clippers vs Jazz Game 5 Player Props

1. Paul George - Points: Under 30.5 (-118)

A lot of pressure is going to be on Paul George's shoulders ahead of Game 5. While he's scored 31 points in back-to-back games, he's done that with Leonard in the lineup. Now, without his fellow Clippers' superstar, it's hard to see George doing it again on Wednesday. The 31-year-old played 11 games without Leonard this season. During that span, he averaged 26.7 points per game. While George does have big-game potential, he can also be his own worst enemy at times. The possibility of a big performance is there, however, history shows that he may fall a bit short.

2. Rudy Gobert - Rebounds: Over 12.5 (-105)

While Rudy Gobert is one of the best rebounders in the NBA, he's averaged just 9.0 rebounds per game in the last two games. It's safe to say that he's due for a big performance, especially with Leonard out of the lineup. Even though they play different positions, the Clippers superstar had been averaging 7.5 rebounds per game on the series. With him out of the lineup, life should be easier for Gobert. He'll also be playing at home in Utah where he's averaged 15.0 rebounds per game during the playoffs. With an arena of Jazz fans cheering him on, Gobert has the perfect opportunity to snap his rebounding funk.

3. Marcus Morris - Points: Over 14.5 (-124)

Marcus Morris played a big role in the Clippers' Game 4 victory earlier this week as he recorded 24 points — tying his previous career-high in the playoffs. Under normal circumstances, there's a good chance that he wouldn't score over 14.5 points. However, Leonard is out of the lineup and Morris may end up as the Clippers' No. 2 scoring option. After all, someone is going to have to take Leonard's shots and George can't do it all on his own. Unless something goes incredibly wrong, there's a good chance that Morris could finish Game 5 with 15 or more points.
