Here are three of the best prop bets for Grizzlies-Lakers Game 6, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Grizzlies vs Lakers Game 6 Player Props

1. Ja Morant - Points + Rebounds + Assists: Over 43.5 (-111)

The Grizzlies' backs are against the wall in a win-or-go-home Game 6 on Friday and that puts the pressure on Ja Morant to perform. Morant answered the call in Game 5 as he logged 31 points to go along with 10 rebounds and 7 assists. He guided the Memphis offense across 38 minutes of action and should see a similar role in Game 6. Overall, Morant has tallied at least 44 PRA in five of his last nine games against the Lakers and averages a reliable 43.9 PRA across 18 career playoff games. This low line seems to be the result of his hand injury, yet he is shooting 44.7% from the floor since returning. There is little to no issue there.

2. D'Angelo Russell - Rebounds + Assists: Over 9.5 (+114)

D'Angelo Russell has served a "glue guy" in this series as he has done the little things to ensure the Lakers emerge victorious. After averaging 2.9 rebounds per game in the regular season with the Lakers, he is tallying 4.0 rebounds per game in this series. The 27-year-old has also seen his assists mark slightly improve to 6.2. Russell has posted at least 10 rebounds + assists in four of the five games in this series and is coming off a game in which he logged 10 assists alone. Keep in mind Memphis allows the second-most rebounds (6.8) to opposing point guards and the fifth-most opponent assists per game (26.2).

3. Dillon Brooks - Points: Under 11.5 (+100)

While Dillon Brooks has left a lasting impression in this series, it has not been because of his play on the court. The former Oregon standout has been held to less than 12 points in each of his last three contests and is shooting a woeful 25.6% from the floor during that span (18.2% from three). Brooks willingness to keep shooting from beyond the arc is the only thing to worry about here, but the Lakers rank second in opponent three-point percentage (34.2%) for a reason. LA possesses a roster built around long defensive players capable of frustrating guys like Brooks all night long.
