After the Pacers had Game 1 at their fingertips, they look ahead to Game 2 as they try to tie this series up behind Pascal Siakam and Tyrese Haliburton.

G Jrue Holiday (BOS) OVER 10.5 Rebounds + Assists

Holiday was the one consistent factor for Boston in Game 1 giving us a vintage performance. Jrue had 28 points, 8 assists, and 7 rebounds, and he has to replicate this type of performance in Game 2 in order for Boston to walk out of TD Garden with a 2-0 series lead on Indiana.

Holiday averaged 10.4 RA in five regular season games against Indiana, so with additional minutes this postseason, the 10.5 prop mark should be an easy hit.

F Pascal Siakam (IND) OVER 20.5 Points

After a 24 point Game 1, Pascal’s prop has dropped to around 20.5 on most books. Due to increased attention in the post and the Pacers run-and-gun style, the theory is that Siakam could struggle to get looks in transition this series.

Regardless of this, Siakam going through a championship run and understanding how to win close games, Game 2 will be Pascal’s night to shine and we are predicting a near 30-bomb for the Indiana forward.

Pascal has hit this point prop in 6 of 14 postseason games thus far, 4 of which were away.

G T.J. McConnell (IND) OVER 8.5 Points

McConnell once again is bound to leave his imprint on this series. The disruptive guard is still picking up the ball handler 94 feet away from the basket, while easily getting to his spots on offense.

T.J. played in a playoff-high 25 minutes two nights ago and we do not expect that number to drop in Game 2.

In six games where McConnell has played 20 minutes or more this postseason, he’s had 10+ points all six times.

F Al Horford (BOS) UNDER 9.5 Rebounds + Assists

With the Pacers’ fast paced style of offense (and defense), Al Horford will continue to struggle to find playmaking and rebounding opportunities.

Boston likes to send Horford out for the 3-ball with Tatum and Brown in the game so they can attack the paint, which won’t change in Game 2.

Horford finished the first game with 12 3PA, 6 boards, and just 1 assist. Look for these numbers to stay stagnant unless the game plan on offense drastically changes.
