The Celtics used a second-half burst to cruise past the Heat in Game 5 on Wednesday night by a score of 93-80. Miami now heads to Boston in a do-or-die situation looking to force a Game 7. Meanwhile, Jayson Tatum and company are looking to punch their ticket to the NBA Finals.

Head coach Ime Udoka knows he has the fans behind his team in Game 6 as the Celtics enter TD Garden as 8.5-point favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Bettors can get in on the action in a variety of ways, though, so here's a look at three of the best player props to target.

Heat vs Celtics Player Props Game 5

1. Jayson Tatum - Rebounds: Over 6.5 (+100)

Jayson Tatum is doing everything he can to power the Celtics to the NBA Finals and that includes crashing the glass whenever possible. The fifth-year pro has racked up at least 7 rebounds in five of his last nine games and is averaging 6.3 rebounds a night during the postseason. Not only that, but the Celtics held the Heat to a shooting percentage of just 40.1% across Games 3 and 4 at TD Garden. If they can contest shots once again in this one, there will be a lot of opportunities for Tatum to clean up on misses.

2. Jaylen Brown - Points: Over 24.5 (-112)

One thing has become clear during this series and that is Jaylen Brown is not afraid to keep on shooting. He has attempted at least 17 shots in each of the five games during this series, including a combined 40 in Games 3 and 4. A volume that large is bound to lead to made jumpers and trips to the free throw line. Brown has scored at least 24 points in six of his last seven games against the Heat, dating back to the regular season. With a chance to end the series on Friday, look for the 25-year-old to ball out.

3. Jimmy Butler - Points: Under 21.5 (-110)

There's no denying that the last three games have been the worst-case scenario for Jimmy Butler. The Miami leader is shooting just 25% from the floor during that span (10-for-40) and is now 2-for-12 from beyond the arc in this series. He is seeing arms in his face no matter who is guarding him, which is making it tough to score. Butler has tallied 27 total points in the last three games and continues to nurse a knee issue. None of that bodes well for his chances of suddenly turning it all around in Game 6.
