Boston Celtics vs. Golden State Warriors Best NBA First Basket Props Odds & Picks

After losing in Game 4, Draymond Green won the opening tip-off in Game 5. Robert Williams’ track record is far substantial in opening tips as he’s just shy of 60% in the playoffs. He’ll get that first possession for Boston in their elimination game.

The Celtics are the best team this season at grabbing the first basket with a 62% hit rate, while Golden State is well-below average at just 40%. You would suspect the opposite as the Warriors have knocked down the first points in four of the five games of this series.

Jaylen Brown is coming off a rough game, and he’s going to look for redemption and plenty of scoring chances. He has been the guy throughout the season and the playoffs to get the offense started. He leads the team by taking 31% of their first field goals and 24% of the game’s first basket.

First basket: Jaylen Brown +370
