Boston Celtics shooting guard Jaylen Brown had been arguably the team’s best player in the 2022 NBA Finals, but he struggled against a strong defensive effort from the Golden State Warriors on Monday night. Brown shot just 5 of 18 from the floor, including a 0 of 5 effort from beyond the arc. He had scored a combined 48 points over his previous two games in the series, so it was a letdown performance in Game 5.
Brown enters Game 6 on Thursday at 9 p.m. ET with an over-under of 24.5 points in the latest NBA player prop odds at Caesars Sportsbook. He has only gone over that total once in his last seven games, so should you be fading him with your NBA Finals prop bets?

Top NBA player prop bets for Celtics vs. Warriors
After simulating Game 6 of Warriors vs. Celtics 10,000 times, the model projects Golden State small forward Andrew Wiggins to go under 18.5 points at -145 odds. The model has him scoring 14.7 points in the simulations. He has played in 103 games this season, but he has only gone over 18.5 points in 32 of those contests. His point total has risen following his outstanding effort in Game 5 on Monday night.
However, the model does not expect Wiggins to duplicate that performance against the top defensive team in the NBA. He had gone under 18.5 points in the previous three games in this series, scoring just 11 points in Game 2. The Celtics are going to focus on keeping Wiggins out of the paint on Thursday night, and he is likely not accurate enough to score 20 points from beyond the arc.
