Fresh off of their first road loss of the season last night, the Los Angeles Lakers will look to bounce back against the Detroit Pistons on Thursday. Los Angeles fell in the final seconds against the Philadelphia 76ers, but a matchup against the lowly Pistons sets them up to rebound.
Lakers vs Pistons Prop Bets
1. LeBron James - Points: Over 25.5 (-102)
LeBron James is coming off of a 34-point against the 76ers and has scored 80 points in his last two games. He's very much in the zone right now, and he'll face a Detroit defense that's allowing 113.5 points per game (eighth-most in the league). Even on the second night of a back-to-back, James should look to make a statement following the loss in Philly. Plus, he hasn't scored fewer than 26 points in any of his team's three back-to-backs this season.
2. Delon Wright - Assists: Over 4.5 (+116)
The injury to rookie point guard Killian Hayes has allowed Delon Wright an opportunity for extended playing time, with the veteran seeing at least 30 minutes in his last three games. Over that same span, he's averaging 7.3 assists per game. The Lakers will assuredly be tired after traveling from Philadelphia last night, giving Wright a great chance to keep up his high assist numbers by finding his teammates for easy buckets.
3. Jerami Grant - Points: Over 21.5 (-116)
As the team's No. 1 scoring option, forward Jerami Grant is having a breakout year. He's averaging 24.4 PPG and has scored under 22 points in only three of his 18 games this year. Against a Lakers defense on a back-to-back and facing little competition on his team for looks, Grant is in position for another big scoring night.
