Kevin Durant OVER 24.5 (-102)
The Suns, with Kevin Durant, have looked incredible in the lineup by winning both starts. As they bring in another offensive weapon, it takes the pressure off the others. Also, Durant doesn’t always have to be the top option, which worked when he was at Golden State.
I like Durant to have one of his best games in a Suns uniform tonight. This provides a favorable matchup as the Mavericks allow the most points to power forwards this season, and I think he’ll want to show off in front of his former teammate.
The Bulls are not playing well at the worse time. They’ve lost seven of their last ten, and now they’ve dropped out of a playoff spot.
They’ll take on the Pacers, whom they’ve lost the last two matchups against. LaVine’s currently rebound prop is set absurdly low. 3.5, which is half of his average against the Pacers this year, and he’s gone over that number in 66% of games this season.
The Clippers have been a streaky team throughout the year and are currently on a five-game losing skid. They’ve had leads in recent games, but they’ve given them away late in the fourth quarter.
Despite the losing, Westbrook has fit well into this offense. Offensive production has increased, and he’s been a great facilitator. Memphis is awful on defense, and they’re allowing the highest assist percentage this season.
