Thursday's slate of NBA action includes a primetime matchup between the Memphis Grizzlies and Boston Celtics.

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

Grizzlies vs Celtics Player Props

1. Jayson Tatum - Made Threes: Over 3.5 (+124)

Jayson Tatum will need to shoulder the scoring load with Jaylen Brown out. The good news is that Tatum gets even more aggressive as a scorer when Brown has been sidelined this season. In 14 games without Brown, Tatum's 3-point makes (3.6) and attempts (9.0) per contest both rise compared to when Brown is active (2.5 3PM, 8.3 3PA). The Grizzlies are a middle-of-the-pack 3-point defense that doesn't present any real threat to Tatum's shooting from downtown. He's also connected on at least four 3-pointers in four of his last seven games, so it's very possible he comes through for bettors at plus odds.

2. Desmond Bane - Points: Under 17.5 (-102)

Desmond Bane enters this contest in a scoring rut. He's failed to hit this over in each of his last three games, shooting an abysmal 27.3% from the field and 20.0% from deep during this stretch. That was against lesser defenses, too. Now he draws the Boston Celtics, who hold opponents to the third-fewest PPG and own the second-best defensive rating in the league. Don't expect him to snap out of his funk in this one.

3. Al Horford - Rebounds: Under 7.5 (-115)

Al Horford has failed to impress on the boards in his two past outings. His high during this period was just 5 rebounds despite playing nearly 37 minutes against the Detroit Pistons, who've given up the seventh-most RPG to opponents this season. Now Horford matches up with a pair of near 7-footers in Jaren Jackson Jr. and Steven Adams. Those two big men have helped Memphis limit opposing teams to the fourth-fewest RPG this season. It's hard to see Horford cleaning the glass at will after failing to hit this over in three of his last four games.
