The Phoenix Suns will meet the Los Angeles Lakers for the third time this season, with the chance to advance in the In-Season Tournament knockout round on the line. Here’s our best player prop bets for the day’s action, with odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
LeBron James over 6.5 assists (-130)
The King has been in a bit of a scoring slump but he continues to be one of the best facilitators in the game. James went over this mark once in two games against the Suns, with his under coming at six assists. He’s gone over this line just twice in the last six, but two unders were at exactly six assists. Back James, with big stakes, to deliver a solid all-around effort.
Devin Booker under 2.5 3-pointers (-150)
Booker didn’t play in either of the first two matchups between these sides, so there’s not much to go on here. The Lakers are an excellent defensive team at home and generally do a good job limiting opponents from the perimeter. Booker might go for a big number but look for him to remain fairly quiet from behind the arc in this one.
Jusuf Nurkic over 11.5 points (-120)
The big man put up just four points in the first game against the Lakers, but managed 14 in the second meeting. Nurkic is putting up 21.3 points per game over his last three, highlighted by a 31-point outing against the Nuggets. Look for him to go over this mark tonight.
