Through two games, Jaylen Brown has made just six two-point shots and three free throws on this series. That is it. Now, it’s entirely possible that Brown compensates by making a bunch of three’s again in Game 3, but he’s shooting above 47 percent from behind the arc on this series. That is not exactly sustainable, and while he doesn’t seem like seriously injured, it’s price noting that he did appear to be having some trouble together with his hamstring down the stretch of Game 2. Without access to easy shots, expect Brown to regress barely as a scorer in Game 3. The pick: Brown under 24.5 points

Featured Game | Golden State Warriors vs. Memphis Grizzlies

Game 1 of this series totaled 233 points. Game 2 was lower scoring at 213, however the two side were a combined 21-of-83 from behind the arc. On paper, Game 3 looks prefer it must be focused very heavily on offense. Golden State is missing Gary Payton II, their primary Ja Morant defender, and Memphis is missing Dillon Brooks, their preferred Stephen Curry defender. Without them in the sport and with some basic shooting regression on either side, we should always see much more offense on each ends of the ground. The pick: Over 225.5
