The 2021 NBA season is in full swing into December. Tuesday's basketball action has just three games scheduled headlined by the Boston Celtics at Los Angeles Lakers. Bettors will be tuning into TNT for the 10:00 p.m. ET tipoff. The Lakers are up to a 4-point favorite on FanDuel Sportsbook and more bettors like the over 219 points.

But prop bets continue to draw more interest and action, and here are three of the best prop bets for the Lakers-Celtics, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Lakers vs Celtics Player Props

1. Jason Tatum - Rebounds: Over 8.5 (-140)

Tatum led all players with 37 points and 11 rebounds in Boston's 130-108 win over the Lakers Nov. 19. He's had double-digit rebounds in three of his last five games and is averaging 8.8 rebounds on the season. The Lakers allow the 6th most rebounds to forwards and Tatum should get plenty of chances for boards as Los Angeles plays at a very fast pace.

2. Marcus Smart - Points: Over 12.5 (-124)

In that same Nov. 19 game, Marcus Smart scored 22 points for the Celtics. His scoring prop is also drawing interest up from 11.5 points. But with the Lakers playing at the second-fastest pace in the league with average defensive efficiency, Smart can continue his recent scoring surge. He has eclipsed this number in five of his last six games.

3. LeBron James: Assists: Over 7.5 (+188)

LeBron James had 23 points and just 2 assists in the Nov. 19 contest against the Celtics. That was his first game back from an abdominal strain. He's scored at least 30 points in three of his last four games, and we're willing to bet an alternate prop at a plus price he'll get to 8 assists. You can take +520 odds he'll reach at least 10 assists.
