Saturday's NBA schedule includes the national ABC broadcast of the New York Knicks vs Los Angeles Lakers at 8:30 p.m. EST. The Lakers (25-28) are a 2.5-point favorite over the Knicks (24-28), and the over/under is 212 points on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Here's three of the best prop bets for the Knicks-Lakers game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Knicks vs Lakers Player Props

1. Anthony Davis - Points: Over 27.5 (-106)

LeBron James will miss another game with knee swelling. That opens more scoring for Anthony Davis, who has scored 28 points or more in three of his last four games with a strong 31.5% usage rate. Since missing 17 games and returning from a knee injury the end of January, Davis has become more aggressive and dominant. He'll be ready to rebound with another big effort and game off the Lakers tough 111-110 loss to the Clippers Thursday.

2. Russell Westbrook - 10+ Assists: (+190)

Davis will benefit from the play and penetration of Russell Westbrook, who has posted double-digit assists in two of his last three games. Rather than lay heavy juice on Westbrook's over/under assist prop of 7.5, go for the bigger score and return at nearly 2/1.

3. RJ Barrett - Points + Assists: Over 22.5 (-122)

RJ Barrett is just 21 years old, and has already played nearly 3 seasons with the Knicks. He's scored at least 23 points in four of his last six games to raise his scoring average to 17.5 PPG. That includes 23 and 24 points on the road against better defenses of Milwaukee and Cleveland. Barrett's shooting volume has increased with his confidence, and his true shooting percentage is up to 51.6% and better the past month with a 25% usage rate.
