Are the Boston Celtics going to sweep the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference Finals? It sure looked like it, based on the Celtics performance in Game 2. They were in control throughout the entire contest, ultimately beating the Pacers by 16 points.

There hasn’t been an ECF sweep since the 2014-2015 season when the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Atlanta Hawks in four games. The Pacers will have to work some magic in Game 3 to get back on track, so we’ll have to wait and see how this one plays out.

In the meantime, we’ve been taking a deep dive into the player props ahead of this game, hoping to get some good opening lines for the top players in the game. Tyrese Haliburton is questionable heading into this matchup, so we’re expecting big things from a few of his teammates to try and keep them in the series. Let’s get to it!

Myles Turner OVER 7.5 Rebounds

Myles Turner had a poor stat line in Game 2, but that doesn’t tell the whole story. He got into foul trouble early on in that game, and as a result, he had to play timid for the rest of the night.

Assuming that doesn’t happen again, we think Turner will be extra aggressive on the glass in this one, trying to win the rebounding game against the Celtics.

It might be a tall task, but Turner is up to the challenge. Let's play the Over in this spot.

Aaron Nesmith OVER 11.5 Points

Aaron Nesmith had a frustrating performance in Game 2. After looking good in the first half, he was practically non-existent in the second half and ended up not hitting the over on his points total.

That shouldn’t be the case in Game 3, especially when considering Haliburton’s status. The Pacers might need to rely on Nesmith more heavily in this game, resulting in him having at least 12 points.

Jrue Holiday OVER 11.5 Rebounds & Assists

Jrue Holiday is a key cog of the Celtics, although his name isn’t necessarily one of the first mentioned when talking about this team.

He has been an instrumental player in the rebounding and assist categories, helping Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum do their thing.

Holiday was a great offseason addition for the Celtics, and we’re confident he’ll keep his dominance in these two areas in Game 3.
