Philadelphia 76ers vs Toronto Raptors (By: Miyagi)
Anything but another close game between those two teams would be a surprise, so, either way, I can't see any garbage time here and the starters and especially key players like Kawhi get massive minutes.
Kawhi averages 40 minutes per game in those series so far, along with 40 points and 9 rebounds while he already had a double-double (45p, 11r, 2a) in Game-1. From what we have seen so far in those first two games, Kawhi is the only Raptor that stays close to the basket, in the low post, guarding Simmons and he probably spends 80% of his time on the court defensively inside or next to the paint, which of course raises his chances to grab defensive rebounds while its also one of his main tasks since Gasol is very busy boxing out Embiid. Simmons is bigger and a good rebounder, which doesn't make it any easier for Kawhi but still, talking about rebounds, you want to pick the guy with the higher chances among the other candidates (Gasol, Siakam) and that's Kawhi.
Kawhi's 11 rebounds in Game-1 were all defensive ones!
His line for rebounds is 7.5 and at lower odds thus there is absolutely no reason to pick that! Double-double and the whole value at those very high odds or nothing.
