The 2020-21 NBA Playoffs continue on Friday, June 11 with two more exciting matchups, including Game 3 of the series between the Phoenix Suns and Denver Nuggets. The Suns took a commanding 2-0 series lead on Wednesday as they blew out the Nuggets, 123-98. Heading into tonight's game, Denver is favored to win at -118 odds, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
Here's a look at the three best player prop bets heading into Game 3.
Suns vs Nuggets Player Props
1. Chris Paul - Assists: Over 9.5 (-138)
Even at the age of 36, Suns point guard Chris Paul is showing why he's considered the "Point God." The veteran has been locked in over his last three games, recording 38 total assists in that duration. In fact, Paul's actually averaging 10.6 assists per game over his last five contests. With the way that the Suns have been playing, it seems like he has a really good chance at hitting the over in tonight's contest.
2. Nikola Jokic - Points: Over 29.5 (-110)
Nikola Jokic has underperformed in this series, averaging just 23.0 points over the first two games. However, he has an opportunity to be a hero in Game 3 if he wants to get the Nuggets back into the series. They'll be home in Denver, so that should give Jokic a decent momentum group. He also averaged 36.7 points per game at home in the first round against the Portland Trail Blazers. Considering how he's coming off of an NBA MVP victory, look for Jokic to have a big game at home.
3. Michael Porter Jr. - Rebounds: Over 6.5 (-104)
Michael Porter Jr. is already averaging 6.6 rebounds per game this postseason, so it's clear that he's capable of hitting the over. Like Jokic, Porter Jr. has stepped it up in the playoffs whenever the Nuggets are at home. In fact, he recorded 12 rebounds in his last home game. Considering how Denver's back is up against the wall, the team is going to need Porter Jr. to play as physical as possible to break through the Suns' defense.
