Warriors At Nets Matchup And Player Props

Both of these teams rank among the elites in efficiency on both sides of the ball. Golden State, in particular, stands out with the best defense and the second-best offense in the league.

How much of that is real and how much is due to butter-soft schedules? The Nets have played a comical schedule over the past couple of weeks, losing to arguably the only good team they played in the Bulls.

In any case, Kevin Durant gets to greet his old friends and James Harden his old rivals.

Kevin Durant Props

The Warriors’ top-rated defense has been predicated on Draymond Green walling off the paint. Nobody has allowed fewer attempts at the rim as a percentage of overall shots, according to Cleaning The Glass.

On the other hand, only four teams have allowed more frequent 3-point attempts.

Expect Durant, who has been otherworldly this season, to go to his pull-up game pretty often. He seems to be focusing more on the mid-range this season while letting Harden control the perimeter.

James Harden Props

Harden seems to be rounding into form. After a slow start to the season, he’s had three triple-doubles since Halloween and four double-doubles. Make sure his assist and rebound props — he’s averaging 10.3 assists and 8 rebounds in that time — reflect his increased output. The rebounds could be a bit dicey, though, as the Warriors shockingly rank first in the league in rebound rate.

Joe Harris Props

Another player to keep an eye on is Joe Harris. He hasn’t had the best start to the season either, but this figures to be a good matchup for him given the Warriors’ propensity to help on the Nets’ stars. He should shake loose and get some 3s up against that sort of coverage, so over his 3-point prop is worth a look.

Stephen Curry Props

The Nets have been the most turnover-prone team in the league this season. The Warriors have turned opponents over at the sixth-best rate, so steal props on high-minutes Warriors might yield profits here. Stephen Curry and Draymond Green have been prolific thieves. The leader has been Gary Payton II with an astounding 5% steal rate, but his markets might not be as accessible.

Draymond Green Props

Green’s rebounding also figures to play a big role here. The Nets have gotten crushed on the boards a couple of times recently by the Bulls, and to a lesser extent, the Pelicans. They’ve been leaning into smaller lineups with Nic Claxton out, and Green has averaged his most rebounds since 2016 as the Warriors also go center-less fairly often.

 

76ers At Jazz Matchup And Player Props

These two teams combined for maybe the best game of the 2020-21 regular season. Alas, COVID-19 has likely robbed us of a chance for an equally compelling sequel. Joel Embiid remains sidelined in the protocols with no indication as of yet he’ll be back for this game.

Rudy Gobert Props

We lose the chance to see Embiid face fellow elite big man Rudy Gobert. Instead, we get to see him contend with a very different type of big man in Andre Drummond. His offensive game revolves around putbacks and rebounding, which figures to minimize Gobert’s chance to rack up blocks.

The Sixers as a whole rank second-to-last in the league in shot attempts at the rim. Look for potential unders on Gobert’s shot blocking prop. Philly probably won’t challenge him much.

Tyrese Maxey Props

Another reason unders might have legs in this game: while Philly has played at one of the slowest paces in the league, you might think that’s because their offense is based on one of the league’s last post-up centers. You’d be wrong as Philly has actually played below their full-season pace without Embiid.

The Jazz have excelled at running teams off of the 3-point line. In particular, they are extra stingy against corner attempts, ranking first in the league.

Ball-handlers like Tyrese Maxey and Tobias Harris who are willing to venture into the mid-range may find more opportunities than set specialists like Danny Green who lack off-the-bounce game.

Tobias Harris Props

A particularly interesting look could be Harris’ assists over. He’s been dishing dimes at a career-best rate that’s in the 92nd percentile for his position per Cleaning The Glass. He only had 3 assists in the last game against Indiana but fired 7 against the Raptors in his return from the COVID protocols.
