Two-digit dimer

James Harden may not be feeling any pressure, but the 76ers certainly are as they lock horns with the Raptors in the first round.

Harden’s shooting has been this inconsistent since arriving in Philadelphia and he’s shot a pathetic 34.2% from the field in his last six games. That said, he’s been much more consistent when it comes to dropping pennies and has averaged 10.5 assists per game in 21 games for the 76ers.

The Beard has had at least 13 assists in four of his last five games, including a 15-assist performance against the Raptors nine days ago. Philadelphia doesn’t boast the greatest depth, so expect massive minutes for Joel Embiid, Tyrese Maxey and Tobias Harris, which in turn should lead to plenty of assists for Harden.

To take: James Harden Over 10.5 assists (-105)

Every Batman needs a Robin

All eyes will be on NBA MVP favorite Nikola Jokic as he tries to lead Denver past the Warriors in the first round, but if the Nuggets are to pull off the first-round upset, they’ll need some big performances from their supporting cast.

Jokic has been a one-man machine for Denver this season, carrying the team through the absence of Jamal Murray and Michael Porter, but a teammate has helped pick up the slack lately: Aaron Gordon.

Gordon has dropped at least 18 points in seven of his last eight games. During that span, he averaged 20 points and 7.6 rebounds per game.

With the Warriors likely focused on keeping Jokic in check, we like Gordon topping his set points and rebounds total of 22.5.

To take: Aaron Gordon Over 22.5 points + rebounds (-120)
