The 2021 NBA season is in full swing. Tuesday's basketball action features a primetime matchup between the Atlanta Hawks and Brooklyn Nets.

Here's three of the best prop bets for this NBA game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Hawks vs Nets Player Props

1. James Harden - Rebounds: Under 7.5 (-118)

James Harden has rebounded at the third-best clip in his career this season at 7.6 per game. However, he's set to face one of the best rebounding teams in the NBA. The Atlanta Hawks allow the seventh-fewest opponent rebounds (44.0) per contest, led by big man Clint Capela's 14.3 mark. Atlanta also ranks fourth in defensive rebounding percentage (76.2%) and leaves a 7.5-rebound performance from Harden unlikely.

2. Trae Young - Points: Under 24.5 (-104)

While he's lauded for his scoring, Trae Young has gone for 25-plus points in only three of his seven games played this season. The Hawks are surprisingly running a slower pace than ever before, ranking 25th across the league in that metric (99.36). This doesn't even factor in the staunch Brooklyn Nets defense, which allows just 104.6 points per game (10th) and ranks ninth in defensive net rating (104.1). Young's scoring will creep closer to his 24.1 points per game average, but not tonight.

3. Kevin Durant - Assists: Under 4.5 (-105)

Kevin Durant is averaging close to a career-high mark at 5.3 assists per game this season but is also shooting the highest percentage of all starters at 58.3%. Bruce Brown and Nic Claxon average better than 50% shooting but each takes less than 7 shots per game. Meanwhile, Joe Harris and James Harden are making less than 40% of their FG attempts. Atlanta's defense is playing better than expected and ranks 17th in defensive net rating and the sixth-slowest pace. This game will play more like a slug fest than a high-scoring affair.
