3 Best Prop Bets for Suns vs Clippers Game 4 on April 22 (Russ Steps Up With Kawhi Out)
By Tyler Maher
The first round of the NBA Playoffs continues on Saturday with a Game 4 matchup between the Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Clippers. Can the Suns win again and take a commanding 3-1 lead back to Phoenix? Or will the Clippers even things up on their home court?
Here are three of the best prop bets for Suns-Clippers Game 4, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Suns vs Clippers Game 4 Player Props
1. Russell Westbrook - Player Points: Over 23.5 (+100)
With no Paul George and now no Kawhi Leonard, the Clippers are counting on Westbrook to step up and lead their offense. He's proven up to the challenge over the last two games, pouring in 58 points on 20-of-39 shooting. After back-to-back vintage performances with 28 points in Game 2 and 30 points in Game 3, Westbrook will need to carry a heavy load again in Game 4 as LA's primary scoring option. Don't be surprised if he threatens 30 points for the third straight game.
2. Kevin Durant - Player Rebounds: Under 7.5 (-140)
Durant has looked like his old self in this series, but his rebounding prop is a bit high. He's nabbed 6 boards in each of the last two games and has gone under 7.5 in six of his last seven games overall. KD is typically good for 5 or 6 rebounds per game because of his height, but he's not one to crash the glass given his age, injury history and slim frame. Expect plenty of points but not a ton of rebounds from the future Hall of Famer today.
3. Russell Westbrook - Player Assists: Under 9.5 (-140)
Without Leonard and George, LA doesn't have many other scoring options that Westbrook can pass to. He's gone under this assist prop in five of his last six games and probably will do so again as he focuses on getting to the basket rather than finding open teammates. Even if he does get the ball in their hands, it's tough to trust them to make their shots and help Westbrook reach double digits in this category.
