Friday's NBA Playoffs slate includes a Game 3 showdown between the Miami Heat and Atlanta Hawks. The Heat are listed as 1.5-point favorites with a total of 221.5.

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

Heat vs Hawks Game 3 Prop Bets 

1. Jimmy Butler to Record 2+ Steals (-125)

Miami's top-ranked defense has been all over Atlanta to begin the series, forcing 37 combined turnovers in the first two games. That includes an impressive 21 steals by the Heat, and Jimmy Butler's been central to that. The All-Star has racked up at least 2 steals in every outing so far, and he's coming off of a 3-steal performance in Game 2. It'd be no surprise to see Butler take advantage of Trae Young, who's coughed up 16 combined TOs in just two contests.

2. Kevin Huerter - Points: Under 12.5 (-112)

Kevin Huerter has found himself neutralized by Miami's top perimeter defense. He's managed just 8 and 9 points, respectively, to open things with a poor 33.3% shooting mark from the field. There's a real chance Huerter (34 minutes played in Game 2) sees his role minimized further after fellow wing Bogan Bogdanovic put up 29 points in 28 minutes last time out. The Hawks needs any offense they can muster, and Huerter's struggles leave the door open for Kevin Knox or Timothe Luwawu-Cabarro to get some run, like they did during Huerter's 23-minute night in Game 1.

3. Bam Adebayo - Rebounds: Under 8.5 (-108)

Heat big man Bam Adebayo picked up a left thigh contusion in the first game of this series, and he was a close call before eventually suiting up for Game 2. It's clear how much the injury is impacting him. After averaging 10.1 rebounds per game in the regular season, Adebayo has grabbed just 10 total boards over the first two contests. He's also seen sub-30 minutes in both outings, which has limited his production potential. Adebayo is questionable for Game 3, so it's obvious the issue hasn't gone away, and that makes it hard to see him clearing this over.
