Today’s Best NBA Player Accessories

Maxey-Mum Overdrive

The return of Joel Embiid not only restores the Philadelphia 76ers to their mainstay in the paint, but also revives the offense’s transition offense.

Without Embiid inside for the first two games, the Miami Heat were scoring at an effective pace and forcing the 76ers to start a good chunk of possessions out of bounds – automatically slowing things down.

But, with Embiid back, the Philadelphia defense isn’t giving up as much and the offense has found that high speed in transition. The Sixers went from just 25 total fastbreak points in Games 1 and 2, to 37 fastbreak points in the last two games.

No one benefits from these transition sets more than speedster Tyrese Maxey, who sits behind only Giannis Antetokounmpo in scoring in these pace-pushing games this postseason. Maxey is scoring nearly eight points per game in transition for a 1.46 ppg average.

Maxey is averaging 23 points per game for the series and coming off a night of 5-on-10 shooting for 18 points in Game 4. With James Harden’s blowout of 31 points in Game 4 putting the Heat defense in shape alert, Maxey could find more room to operate and thrive in a fast-paced 76ers offense.

In Strus we trust

The Heat’s backcourt will rely on guys like Max Strus to play more impactful minutes in Game 5, as veteran goaltender Kyle Lowry was still limping with a hamstring injury.

Strus stepped up with nine points in Games 2 and 3 – all of which came from beyond the arc – and he’s not afraid to let it fly from the outside, going a combined 9 for 29 away in this series.

He was a cold 5 for 16 from beyond the arc in both games in Philadelphia, but with Game 5 in sunny South Beach, Strus will build on that familiarity with the court where he averaged 2, 5 triples per game this season.

Strus is scarred with a hamstring injury for Game 5, but don’t let that report fool you. Miami has half its roster on injury report and that “game-time decision” designation has followed Strus in every outing this series. He is fine.

Miami was a lousy 23 for 65 on 3-pointers the past two games, but they’re the best outside shooting team in the NBA (37.4%) and will play more like that tonight, with Strus knocking down at least three fat triplets.

To take: Max Strus Over 2.5 trios made (-132)

Low-Low Doncic

Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks battled to tie this conference semifinal series with the Phoenix Suns at 2-2, and part of that has been an adjustment to how Doncic goes about his business on offense.

The Mavs have used Luka more often in the post-up over the past two outings, relying on his strength to overpower small guards and his speed to burn through bigger defenders on and around the blocks. Doncic also looked to dribble more rather than playing on high screens and watching from long distance.

Dallas can then play their small-ball rotation around Doncic down, benefiting from the extra space on the perimeter when the Suns crumble on Luka inside. This inside focus led to more assists, extra assists and a better team score for the Mavs – but reduced Doncic’s output from the outside.

He shot a combined 9-for-21 from 3-point range in the first two games at Phoenix, but was just 3-for-17 in the next two games at home, even passing 3-point chances with a additional pass to an open. shooter and trusting his teammates to make those triples.

As the series returns to the wasteland and the Mavericks come through with Doncic’s play in the paint, we’re going to drop under his 3-point mark for Game 5…which should be a terrifying gamble to watch play out.

To take: Luka Doncic Under 3.5 three made (-113)
