Thursday's NBA TV doubleheader begins with the Golden State Warriors at Memphis Grizzlies at 8 p.m. EST. The Pacific Division co-leading Warriors (30-9) are a 2-point road favorite over the Grizzlies (28-14), who are on top of the Southwest Division. The over/under is set at 221 points.

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

Warriors vs Grizzlies Player Props

1. Ja Morant - Assists: Over 6.5 (+112)

Morant is a playmaker who can excel even against the best defenses like the Warriors. He had 21 points and 6 assists in the last meeting against Golden State, and 36 points at 8 assists at Brooklyn a week ago against the Nets top-tier defense. The Warriors may use Gary Payton more than Curry to defend Morant as they did Dec. 23. But back home and playing his best ball, Morant is nearly unstoppable in isolation and an unselfish teammate and skilled penetrator to count on.

2. Steph Curry - Points: Over 26.5 (-118)

Curry went off for 46 points including 8 made 3-pointers in the Warriors win over Memphis Dec. 23. With Payton able to guard Morant more, it frees up Curry with more energy on the offensive end. The Grizzlies lead the league in both blocks per game (6.2) and steals per game (10.2). But Memphis is bottom tier in 3-point defense (36.4%) and just allowed the Lakers to hit 14-of-33 long range shots last game. Curry should get his share of shots and points again.

3. Will There Be Overtime - Yes (+1400)

These are not the most prudent plays, but taking a small shot on overtime at these odds in an expected close contest can payoff.
