Without Anthony Davis on the floor, LeBron James is going to have to continue to shoulder the load on offense. Over the last six games, he’s averaged 27.7 points per game and is averaging just under 26 points per game on the year. On Thursday night, he will face off against one of the worst defenses in the NBA in the Brooklyn Nets. They are allowing just under 118 points per game and will be without their best wing defender (and player) in Kevin Durant. Expect James to go off in this primetime matchup between two of the best teams in the NBA. Don’t be surprised if he scores closer to 40 than 30 points on Thursday. He typically plays his best in big games like this on the national stage.


James Harden, SG, Brooklyn Nets at Los Angeles Lakers

Player Prop

-110

James Harden: Over 25.5 Pts

Likewise, with James Harden, he will have to do more of the heavy lifting on offense with Durant out of the lineup. Luckily for him, scoring is what he does best. In his last game without Durant on the floor, Harden scored 38 points in a come-from-behind victory over the Phoenix Suns. He tends to play more like a point guard when Durant is in the lineup, averaging just under 12 assists per game with the Nets this season. But don’t look for him to be in the sharing mood on Thursday as the Nets will need him to score if they want to upset the Lakers. Expect Harden to score close to 30 or more in this game.


Khris Middleton, SF, Milwaukee Bucks vs. Toronto Raptors

Player Prop

-110

Khris Middleton: Over 21.5 Pts

Over 21.5 points (-110)

The Nets-Lakers game is the second game on TNT on Thursday night with the Raptors and Bucks facing off against one another in the first primetime game. We like Khris Middleton to score over 21.5 points in this game as he’s had a ton of success against Toronto in the past. Earlier this season, he scored 24 and hauled in 10 rebounds in a primetime matchup against the Raptors. However, he was held to just 11 points in their most recent outing as he attempted just eight shots. Look for him to be far more aggressive in this game and to go over 21.5 points as the Bucks will need him to score in order to get this victory. Look for Middleton to attempt 15 or 16 shots in this game and get to the free-throw line a few times.
