Too good to be Jrue

Did the Milwaukee Bucks hit the wall?

The defending champions looked absolutely gassed in the final frame of Game 4 against the Boston Celtics, including veteran goaltender Jrue Holiday. His icy 0-for-5 effort in the fourth quarter was a big part of the Bucks’ opener in Boston and tied this series at 2-2 with Game 5 back in Boston tonight.

Holiday’s offensive production has been ubiquitous in this series, posting 25-point results in Games 1 and 3 but mustering 19 and 16 points in the other two outings, including a 5-for-22 shooting performance on Monday.

In fact, Holiday has been very ineffective overall for Milwaukee. He’s shooting 33.6% collective for the series but still takes 26% of the Bucks’ total shots, including 24% of their 113 total 3-point attempts — connecting on just 8 of 27 triples. He also draws a lot of checks from elite defensive stoppers Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown, which doesn’t help matters.

Defensively, Holiday has been solid and will continue to spend most of his energy at this end of the field. He’s recording significant minutes with 40 or more minutes in each of the last three outings and the grind of last year’s title run is starting to show on the Bucks. Holiday may have to save what’s left in those legs for defense and find places to rest on offense.

Covers NBA betting analysis

Greek on glass

With Boston using forward Al Horford’s outside shooting touch to stretch the Bucks’ inside defenders, it takes big man Brook Lopez off the rim and out of the rebound position.

Milwaukee may have to get smaller than they would like tonight if Horford stays hot, which means Giannis Antetokounmpo is slipping to center. The “Greek Freak” has the ability to cover a lot of ground on fences while jostling to the assist side, and that should keep him active on the glass.

Antetokounmpo had 18 rebounds in Game 4 and averaged 13 for the series, which was about his rebound total tonight.

If Lopez is dragged out or the Bucks go small, Giannis has to smash the glass to avoid any extra buckets from Boston. Offensively, his lanky 6-foot-11 frame can compete for rebounds for returns on a shorter Celtics frontcourt, which could still miss center Robert Williams after the “Time Lord” sat Game 4 in pain. Knee.

Most books treat Antetokounmpo’s rebound total at 13.5 (Over is more money), but you can still get the price for over 12.5 boards at -132 at FanDuel.

MFs act like they forgot about Klay

The Warriors can say goodbye to the Grizzlies tonight and give themselves some well-deserved time out before the Western Conference Finals. And with Memphis missing star guard Ja Morant and the books giving the Grizz four points at home, a Golden State victory is likely.

But the Dubs are a savvy bunch and know the young Grizzlies won’t just ride without their stud marker, as Klay Thompson informed the media. Thompson said Game 5 would be the “toughest yet” and we like Klay leading the way to the Western Finals for the Warriors.

Thompson’s offensive efforts have been hot and cold this series, scoring 15 points or less in three of four games, with a 21-point performance in Game 3 being the outlier. It only shoots 36% from the ground, including a 28% cold clip from beyond the arc.

But despite the drop in production, the books still have faith in Klay, setting his Game 5 prop total between 20.5 and 21.5 points. Thompson is still logging major minutes, playing 41, 35 and 38 in the past three games, and while his shooting hasn’t been quite as smooth, he’s still a threat from deep (as evidenced by his tally of Over/Under props of 3.5 triples made for match 5).

Stephen Curry, Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole also struggled from the outside in Game 4, but managed to break into Memphis’ aggressive defense for inside marks. The Grizzlies may need to dab some paint tonight and that may leave some room for Thompson on ejections.

We give Klay the benefit of the doubt and trust his killer instincts in a closing game.

To take: Klay Thompson Over 20.5 points (-115)
