Two of the NBA's best face off tonight, as the Los Angeles Clippers travel to Brooklyn to take on the Nets. Despite playing on the road, the Clippers are still listed as 1.5-point favorites tonight, per FanDuel Sportsbook.

If you're looking to get a little more creative with your wagering, here are three of the best prop bets for this Clippers-Nets clash.

Clippers vs Nets Prop Bets

3. James Harden - Points: Under 23.5 (-106)

James Harden has pretty clearly been operating as the third option to Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Since Irving returned to the lineup, Harden has recorded 20 or fewer points in four of his last six games. Notably, Harden is only attempting 13.5 shots per game in that time, compared to 22.8 for Durant and 20.6 for Irving.

2. James Harden - Assists: Over 9.5 (-128)

Where Harden has shined, however, is as a facilitator. In that same six-game span since Irving returned to the lineup, the Nets' third banana is averaging 11.3 assists per game. In fact, Harden's 11.1 APG on the year is currently the best such mark in the NBA, with the second-place Luka Doncic "only" averaging 9.3 APG. Notably, Harden has recorded at least 11 assists in five of his six appearances while playing alongside Irving. His lowest assist total during that span is 8.

1. Paul George - 4-plus Made 3-Pointers (+102)

Paul George has been shooting like a man possessed this season, converting a blistering 45.4% of his 3-pointers while attempting 7.8 shots per game from beyond the arc. In fact, he's hitting an average of 3.6 3-pointers per game, meaning his average night would have him just shy of hitting this total. But the Nets are not an "average" defense. Since the Harden trade, their 122.6 offensive rating would be the best mark of all time, but their 119.9 defensive rating would be the worst such mark in NBA history. Safe to say, there should be plenty of points scored in this one. And a ton of those should come from 3-point range. With Brooklyn allowing the fifth-most 3-point attempts in the league (785) and George converting 3-pointers at 45.4% clip, he's got a great shot to hit at least 4 from beyond the arc. If you're feeling bold, George is also +235 to hit 5-plus 3's.
