We have reached the Conference Finals games in the NBA Playoffs. This means we have only a single game each night, making DFS NBA picks and lineups a bit tricky to create. So, if looking for a different way to play NBA fantasy contests today, PrizePicks could be a site that interests you. Instead of building lineups of players, at PrizePicks, you are making predictions on player props, stats or fantasy points, with more correct predictions meaning higher payouts.
PrizePicks provides a big list of stats and fantasy points, and you can pick and choose which you want to make a prediction for. Stringing together a few picks can payout up to 10 times your entry fee. You are even able to combine picks across different sports. The only rule is you must make picks for players on at least two different teams.
For the sake of this article, we will take you through three of the best NBA fantasy PrizePicks predictions to make for the Clippers-Suns NBA Playoffs Game 2 matchup.
PrizePicks NBA Fantasy | Clippers vs. Suns Game 2
It is important to note that, much like odds that update throughout the day, the player totals at PrizePicks are subject to change. So if you like these NBA picks below, it’s wise to jump on them quickly.
DeMarcus Cousins: Over 13.0 NBA Fantasy Points
Clippers coach Tyronn Lue hinted they had been saving DeMarcus Cousins for this series, for some reason. They believe he matches up well with the Suns, and he proved this in Game 1. In 13 minutes, he quickly racked up 18.3 NBA fantasy points. For the season, he averages 1.28 fantasy points per minute. With how well he played last game, it would be surprising to see him play anything less than double-digit minutes, and it only takes a little over 10 minutes for him to hit this fantasy score at this season’s pace.
Devin Booker: Over 6.5 Assists
We know Devin Booker can shoot the lights out. However, we continue to see him demand the ball with Chris Paul out, as he is tonight. Last game, Booker had a 37.2% usage rate, which isn’t unusual when CP3 is out. The defense is plenty aware of Booker’s scoring, so they commit extra attention to him, and he usually makes the right play by finding open teammates. This led to him getting 11 assists. It should be more of the same today.
Paul George: Over 3.0 Made 3’s
With Kawhi Leonard out, more of the offensive pressure is placed on Paul George. His team needs him to score, so the sheer shot attempts should lead to this over hitting. In Game 1, George attempted a whopping 15 shots from downtown. He ended up converting on seven of them. If George continues to have at least 10 shot attempts from beyond the arc, I feel good about this prop. His teammates stepping up and scoring is also leading to open looks, which is great to see.
