Tuesday's slate of NBA postseason games includes a Game 5 between the Los Angeles Clippers and Phoenix Suns. FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NBA odds list the Suns as the 12.5-point home favorite with the projected total set at 223.5.

Here are three of the best NBA player prop bets for the Clippers-Suns game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Clippers vs Suns Player Props

1. Eric Gordon Over 13.5 Points (+100)

Eric Gordon has only hit this over once in five games during this series, but now the Clippers will be without Kawhi Leonard and the veteran is a prime candidate to be a guy Los Angeles can rely on to step up on the offensive side of the ball. In three games without Kawhi this season, Gordon has averaged 14.0 points per game. If the Clippers hope to compete in Game 6, Gordon getting going offensively is required.

2. Norm Powell Over 2.5 Three Pointers Made (-138)

At the end of the regular season and in the first couple of games of this series, Norm Powell couldn't hit the broad side of the barn from beyond the arc. Then Game 3 happened, as he exploded for 7-12 from three-point range on his way to 42 points. He came back down to earth in Game 4, only scoring 14 points, but still hit two threes. With Kawhi out, expect another night of big minutes from Powell, which means more opportunity. Take the over here.

3. Chris Paul 3+ Steals (+230)

Getting three or more steals in an NBA game is no easy feat, but Chris Paul is one of the best and smartest defensive point guards in NBA history. He has had exactly three steals in the last two games of this series. Additionally, he will be guarding a turnover machine in Russell Westbrook. The Clippers point guard has averaged five turnovers per game over his last two. With Paul's defensive prowess and Westbrook's turnover propensity, the plus odds here are worth taking the flyer on in Game 5.
