Monte Morris' assist total was the lone blemish during an otherwise perfect Wednesday. We're now a red-hot 9-2 on the week, with two more games coming Thursday.

Here are the best bets for Clippers-Jazz and Nets-Bucks.

Paul George under 23.5 points and under 2.5 made threes

No player needs a big game more than George as his playoff struggles continue. The 31-year-old went 4-of-17 from the field during Tuesday's Game 1 loss, his 10th postseason contest shooting 25% or worse.

The Jazz have given George fits all season, holding him to 16-of-53 shooting (30.1%) from the floor and just 20 points per game over three meetings.

George has quietly been held under 23 points in five straight playoff games entering Thursday. Take the under with both his points and 3-point total.

Ivica Zubac over 11.5 points + rebounds + assists

Zubac finished with a career-low 15.1% usage rate this season, but he was efficient while posting personal bests in true shooting and effective field-goal percentage. He provided a spark off the bench in the opener against Utah, notching 11 points, six boards, and three assists.

The 2016 second-round pick has shattered this total in all three meetings against the Jazz this season, and he's gone over the total in three of his last five contests despite coming off the bench.

Joe Harris under 1.5 assists

Harris only needs a couple of assists to get past the total Wednesday, but it could be an uphill battle. Although the Bucks have allowed the second-most assists to small forwards over their last 15 games, they've held Harris to two or fewer in all five meetings this season, with the under cashing in four.

Donovan Mitchell over 3.5 made threes

Mitchell continued his torrid postseason scoring pace in Game 1, putting up 45 points on the Clippers. He attempted 30 field goals and 15 triples, and the guard ended the night with a mind-boggling 45% usage rate. He's likely not slowing down any time soon, particularly from beyond the arc, where Mitchell has canned four-plus 3-pointers in eight of his last 12 playoff games.
