With a pair of games on tap for Wednesday's NBA playoff slate, let's dive into the most intriguing player prop bets available.

Danuel House Over/Under 1.5 made three-pointers

House has been a good story for the Rockets, as his two-way contract was recently converted into an official deal. He's often been a spark off the bench, contributing from beyond the arc while shooting 41.6 percent this season.

However, he can also go missing, which is what House has done during the Rockets' first-round series.

After converting on three of his 10 three-point attempts in Game 1, House heads into Wednesday's Game 5 against the Jazz on a 2-for-13 slump. If you expect a bounce-back effort here and like the over, it's available at plus money.

James Harden Over/Under 33.5 points

Harden's produced his moments in the first round, including the Game 2 triple-double and starting off the series with 10 assists in three straight games. He's also so good at filling the stat sheet that it makes his average of 28.2 points per game this series look pedestrian.

Harden is sizzling as a scorer, but by his high standards, he's left something to be desired. Dating back to the regular season, he's scored more than 33 points just once in his last eight games.

Ricky Rubio Over/Under 1.5 made three-pointers

Rubio doesn't earn his paychecks chucking up threes. The veteran guard has shot better than 35 percent from downtown in only one season over his eight-year career, and this year he's hit 31.1 percent.

The last time Rubio made multiple threes in a game was back on March 21 against the Knicks, a skid at 10 games and counting. His volume has also been down, as Rubio has put up three or fewer attempts in 14 of his previous 16 games.

Steph Curry Over/Under 28.5 points

The Warriors escaped L.A. with a Game 3 win despite Curry shooting just 1-for-9 from three and 3-for-14 overall en route to 12 points.

The Golden State star is typically a great bounce-back bet. Curry is averaging 29.5 points per game after scoring 15 or fewer.

Danilo Gallinari Over/Under 19.5 points

Gallinari has been a good player this season for the Clippers, averaging 19.8 points per game and shooting 46.3 percent from three, his best clip since a 28-game rookie season.

He produced 24 points in the Game 2 win over Golden State and scored another 25 against the Warriors during the regular season. But he's been held under Wednesday's posted number in five of the Clippers' seven meetings with the Dubs this year.
