Los Angeles Lakers vs. Phoenix Suns Player Prop Picks

Which players will thrive in this Lakers vs. Suns contest?

SGP (+100 DK): Kevin Durant 25+ Points & Jusuf Nurkic Alternate Under 12.5 Points 

Anthony Davis is an otherworldly paint protector, but Los Angeles struggles to defend jump shots. They surrender the sixth most midrange field goal attempts, the second most above the break three-point attempts, and the most wide open three-point attempts per game. 

Durant remains the top midrange shooter in the game, and he’s also knocking down 41 percent of his above the break threes. Therefore, it’s an excellent matchup for him, especially with Bradley Beal out. In four games against Los Angeles this season, Durant has recorded 39, 38, 31, and 18 points. 

Meanwhile, Davis ranks 12th in rim points saved per 75 possessions (via Basketball Index), and 75 percent of Nurkic’s field goal attempts come from within eight feet of the basket. It will be difficult to rack up free throws too against a Los Angeles squad that allows the lowest opponent free throw attempt rate. 

Nurkic has faced the Lakers four times this season, and he notched 4, 14, 3, and 9 points. 

Based on the odds, this same game parlay needs to hit at least 51 percent of the time for the bet to be profitable in the long run. 

Kevin Durant 6+ 1st Quarter Points (-155 DK)

Los Angeles routinely starts games slow; they give up 117.6 points per 100 possessions during the first quarter, which ranks 23rd in the NBA. Given Kevin Durant’s projected big night, it’s likely that he takes advantage early. He averages seven points per game on an efficient 63.7 true shooting percentage during the first quarter this season. Look for Durant to continue this trend and open up the game hot. 

He needs to score six first quarter points at least 61 percent of the time for the bet to be profitable in the long run.
