Game 2 of the NBA Finals is tonight at 8:00 p.m. EST as the Boston Celtics have a 1-0 lead over the Golden State Warriors.

Boston outscored Golden State 40-16 in the fourth quarter to complete an incredible comeback and stun the Warriors faithful. BetSided's Donnavan Smoot likes Golden State to bounce back, but I'm here to take a look at how individual players will perform.

Be sure to check out Peter Dewey's best prop bets of the day as well, though there's a few additional angles I'd like to take a look at as well.

Using the odds from WynnBET Sportsbook, here are my favorite NBA prop bets for Game 2:

3 Best NBA Prop Bets for Celtics vs. Warriors Game 2

Jaylen Brown Over 6.5 Rebounds (-115)

Peter is fading Jaylen Brown's point total, but I think he'll continue to perform well on the glass. He's cleared this prop in six of his last nine games as he's putting an emphasis on snagging rebounds to generate opportunities in transition.

With Golden State's propensity to shoot from deep, wing players have a better opportunity to snag rebounds and run. That's exactly what Brown wants to do.

He's had at least seven rebounds in six straight matchups with the Warriors and I expect that trend to continue tonight.

Al Horford Over 11.5 Points (-115)

Horford presents a significant matchup problem for Golden State. Kevon Looney isn't quick enough to defend him on the perimeter, and if Looney sags off then Horford can just shoot from deep. He made six of eight 3-pointers in Game 1 en route to 26 points and I think the Horford resurgence keeps rolling in Game 2.

In his last 10 contests with the Warriors, Horford has averaged 15.3 points per game and cleared this prop seven times. Don't hesitate and back the big man once again in this one.

Stephen Curry Over 28.5 Points (-115)

It looked like Steph was well on his way to his first Finals MVP award after the first quarter. He was draining everything as Golden State built a huge lead early on. We all know how that turned out, but Curry still finished with 34 points on 7-for-12 shooting from deep and I think he keeps it rolling tonight.

We know bad Curry wants not only this championship, but some individual hardware as well. It's the only potential knock on his unimpeachable resume, so why not go ahead and silence any possible doubters?

Steph has cleared this prop in four of his last five games against Boston and he only played 14 minutes in the fifth one because of injury. He dominates against this iteration of the Celtics and with the real possibility of leaving the bay area down 0-2, I expect a vintage Steph Curry performance.
