Welcome back to another night of NBA prop bets today on Tuesday, December 14, 2021. In this article, I will identify my best NBA player props tonight to make a maximum profit and get us some more money to get going this week. In this article, we will look at the following players: James Harden, Stephen Curry & Damian Lillard.
Best NBA Player Props Today (12/14/21)
Toronto Raptors at Brooklyn Nets
The Nets will be missing quite a few players tonight in their divisional matchup against the Raptors. If that wasn’t bad enough, Kevin Durant was recently added to the injury report as questionable (ankle). Especially if KD misses this game, we could very well see the Houston Rockets version of James Harden tonight. You know, the one that takes all the shots and also get 15 assists?
Harden hasn’t needed to be the usual stat-monger we have known him to be this season. In fact, he even took a breather for the Nets’ last game- which is something The Beard has rarely done in his career. Harden should be fully rested to attack a Raptors team that is playing their second game in as many nights.
Pick: James Harden to Record a Triple-Double (+240)
Golden State Warriors at New York Knicks
It will likely be a historic night at Madison Square Garden, as Stephen Curry is just two 3-pointers away from breaking the all-time record set by Hall-of-Famer Ray Allen. This is truly unbelievable, considering we all looked at Allen as the greatest 3-pointer shooter before Curry and a new crop of players entered the NBA and started launching their new brand of long-range shooting.
MSG is not only the greatest arena in the league, but it is the best venue in all sports. For such a historic mark to fall there tonight, this has to put Curry in a groove as we’ve never seen. 25.5 points feels like an absolute steal here, and I would urge you all to join me on this momentous occasion.
Pick: Stephen Curry – Over 25.5 Points (-115)
Phoenix Suns at Portland Trail Blazers
The Suns just played a game last night, so I would expect their defense to not be as effective. This could be the perfect opportunity for Damian Lillard to finally have a big individual night, and that’s not something that has been coming with great regularity this season. His sidekick CJ McCollum had that devastating injury to his lungs, so now Lillard will certainly have more responsibility.
At first, I wanted to take over 23.5 points. However, the -135 juice attached to the prop wasn’t necessarily my favorite number. In taking the over on 35.5 points, we’re only going up a little bit on the number to hit and the odds come down as well.
Pick: Damian Lillard – Over 35.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists (-120)
