Saturday's NBA schedule has six games, including an exciting clash between the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers. The Warriors are a 6-point road favorite and the over/under is set at 227.5 points.

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

Warriors vs Clippers Prop Bets Tonight

1. Stephen Curry - Assists: Over 7.5 (+106)

Stephen Curry has started to blossom as a facilitator as of late. The Warriors star has posted at least 8 assists in three of his last four games and has bumped his average up to 6.5 on the year. Curry has a shot to keep his success going on Saturday night against a weak Lakers' defense. LA is giving up the fourth-most assists per game to opposing point guards (9.10) and the fifth-most assists overall (25.8). Curry has already played the Lakers twice this season and logged 8 assists or more in each outing. Trust the two-time MVP to keep finding his open teammates.

2. Russell Westbrook - Made Threes: Under 0.5 (+122)

This is going to be a sweat. It's always dangerous to place a wager on a bet that can lose with just one shot. However, the numbers back it up. Russell Westbrook has failed to hit a three-pointer in six of his last eight games. He is also shooting a dismal 28.4% from beyond the arc on the season. On top of that, Golden State plays superb perimeter defense. The Warriors allow an opponent three point percentage of just 33.7% (No. 4 in NBA). Westbrook is in a slump and it is best to bank on it continuing against the best defensive team in the league.

3. Klay Thompson - Made Threes: Over 2.5 (-148)

There's another three-point prop that sticks out in this game, too. Bettors unafraid of taking on a little juice should look toward the over on Klay Thompson's makes. The Lakers have allowed opponents to shoot over 40% from beyond the arc over their last five games. There's no doubt that Thompson is going to see some open looks. That is good news given he knocked down three-pointers at a rate of 45.6% in the month of February. Keep in mind Thompson destroyed the Lakers to the tune of 33 points (5-of-9 from deep) when he last faced them a few weeks ago.
