Monday's NBA slate of Playoff games includes an exciting Game 4 showdown between the Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Nets as the 1.5-point home favorites over the Celtics.

Here's three of the best prop bets for the Celtics-Nets game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Celtics vs Nets Player Props

1. Bruce Brown - Points: Over 14.5 (-106)

All eyes will be on Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving tonight as the Nets look to avoid a first-round sweep. Don't forget about Bruce Brown, though. The fourth-year pro has turned into one of Brooklyn's most reliable offensive players over the last two games. He has scored an average of 24.5 points per game during that span and is shooting an efficient 58.1% from the floor (45.5% from three-point range). Brown's usage rate of 18.4% during this series ranks fifth among Nets players and greatly outshines the mark of 14.6% he put up in the regular season. Keep riding the hot hand here.

2. Jayson Tatum - Assists: Over 5.5 (-142)

This number simply seems too low. The former Duke standout has posted at least 6 assists in seven of his last eight games and is taking full advantage of how the Nets are guarding him. Brooklyn is shutting down his driving lanes and bringing double teams on defense, but that has only led to Tatum's teammates being wide open. It's never a bad idea to back someone playing over 40 minutes a game, either. Bettors looking to avoid the juiced odds can take a risk at 8+ assists (+230), instead.

3. Kyrie Irving - Made Threes: Under 2.5 (+130)

After nailing six of his 10 three-point attempts in Game 1, Kyrie Irving failed to drain any of his eight attempts from beyond the arc in Games 2 & 3. He is disappearing on the offensive side of the court and it just goes to show how dominant the Celtics' perimeter defense is. Boston has tied for the fourth-lowest opponent three-point shooting percentage this season (34.2%) and gives up just 35.4 points per game from long range (T-No. 8 in NBA). Irving has taken on a facilitating role as of late given his 30.0% shooting percentage from the floor in Games 2 & 3. Look for that trend to continue tonight.
