Wiggins has consistently topped this number throughout the playoffs and has the one matchup we think the Warriors can consistently exploit in this series. Boston struggles to defend opposing SG/SF, but is elite defending every other position. Wiggins has scored at least 16 points in 6 of his last 7 games, and has mixed in 3 double-digit rebounding performances in that stretch.

Tatum struggled to score in game 1, which has been a story throughout his career against the Warriors. He has topped 26.5 points just 3 times in 11 career games against Golden State. Combine that with the fact that the strength of this Warriors defense is in defending the 2/3 positions, and we think Tatum will be more of a distributor again here in game 2. While Tatum has had a great postseason, he has topped 26.5 points in just 3 of his last 6 games.

Horford has failed to put together back-to-back scoring games this postseason, and is too reliant on the 3-pointer for us to think he can replicate his game 1 success tonight. He's never rebounded well against Golden State (5.5 RPG this season), and we expect the Warriors to do a considerably better job defending him on the perimeter in game 2.

Smart has topped 14.5 points in 6 straight games against the Warriors, averaging just over 18 PPG over that stretch. Golden State struggled to defend the point guard position over the past three months, allowing the third-most PPG to the position. We know Smart has battled through injuries throughout the playoffs, but has gone for 15+ in 7 out of his last 9 games that he has played at least 30 minutes. We bet he gets there again tonight and will take the over here.
