Here are three of the best NBA player prop bets for the Grizzlies-Lakers game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Grizzlies vs Lakers Player Props
1. LeBron James — Rebounds: Over 9.5 (+102)
LeBron James has started the series decently, averaging 24.7 points on 50.8% shooting. Having said that, it's been his rebounding that's stood out, averaging 10.7 rebounds through the first three contests. The Grizzlies not having an answer for James on the glass isn't anything new. After all, he's averaging 10.4 boards in his last seven games against Memphis, finishing with at least nine in each. With it becoming increasingly clear that Dillon Brooks isn't fit to guard "The King," look for James to continue making noise near the basket.
2. Ja Morant — Points: Under 28.5 (-120)
Ja Morant's 45-point effort in Game 3 was one of the Grizzlies' few highlights. While that performance is above tonight's projected point total, don't count on Morant hitting the over. For starters, he's only averaging 22.5 points in his last 12 outings, which isn't exactly a small sample size. He's also finished with fewer than 28.5 points in all but two of those games. On top of that, Morant has failed to hit the over in nine of his previous 13 matchups with the Lakers. He'll likely make his presence felt again, but it won't be on the same level as his last showing.
3. Rui Hachimura — 2+ Threes Made (+130)
Rui Hachimura has been playing at another level over the last few games — especially from the perimeter. The talented forward is averaging 2.8 threes on 64.7% shooting over his last four games and has shot 9-of-12 from beyond the arc this series. With all of the Grizzlies' focus on James and Anthony Davis, Hachimura has been able to take advantage of a Memphis team that allows the fifth-most three-pointers in the NBA. With the Lakers' top duo commanding attention once again, expect Hachimura to continue his impressive play.
