Jalen Brunson | NBA Underdog Fantasy Pick Today

It’s clear that Brunson has not been healthy since sustaining a foot injury in Game 3. However, the issue goes further than that. Throughout the postseason, he has been a linchpin for the Knicks, consistently logging huge minutes and carrying a significant workload. This heavy reliance on Brunson has undoubtedly taken its toll.

Indiana has capitalized on this by applying pressure as soon as he gets the ball, leaving him with little time or space to operate comfortably. This has disrupted the Knicks’ rhythm and forced Brunson into unfavorable situations.

The Pacers can do this effectively because they have deeper rotation and thus have fresher legs on the court. In contrast, the Knicks have predominantly used a tight rotation and leaned heavily on their starters. This can kill a team and has put Brunson in a tough position.

Aaron Gordon | NBA Underdog Pick

Michael Malone made adjustments in Games 3 and 4, particularly by having Aaron Gordon take on more ball-handling duties and bring the ball up the court. This shift is reflected in the stats, as Gordon went from averaging 30 passes and five potential assists in the first two games to 51 passes and nine potential assists in the last two. His average touches also increased from 44 to 65.

Despite his relatively lower rebounding numbers in this series, Gordon averaged 7.5 rebounds per 36 minutes during the regular season, so he should improve in that regard. The way Denver is using him on offense, however, is the biggest driving force of taking the higher play here.
