It is the third night back from the All-Star break and there is a loaded schedule in the NBA tonight. There are some interesting matchups tonight for our NBA Player Props. The Denver Nuggets take on the red hot Memphis Grizzles. Later in the night King James and the Lakers host the Indiana Pacers.
Here are three NBA player props to bet on tonight.
Dejounte Murray Over 18.5 Points
The Orlando Magic defensive struggles continue this season. In fact, the Magic are one of the worst defenses against the point guard position. The Spurs will be without DeMar DeRozan tonight and LaMarcus Aldridge and the Spurs have agreed to mutually part ways. This gives Murray the chance to be the featured player on this team. Furthermore, over the last 10 games Murray is averaging 18.3 points per game and I expect him to pick up the scoring load without DeRozan and Aldridge. This is one of my favorite player props for tonight!
Jimmy Butler Points + Rebounds + Assists Over 40.5
The Miami Heat are struggling with injuries and Jimmy Butler is stepping up in a big way. In fact, over the last 10 games Butler is averaging 22.6 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 8 assists. Furthermore, Butler has scored 27 or more points in the last four games and averaging close to 10 assists. As a matter of fact, the Heat matchup against the Bulls tonight who are bottom half in the league in defensive efficiency.
Lebron James Over 28.5 Points
Lebron James over the All-Star break said “it’s game time”. Furthermore, I believe tonight will be the start of that. The Lakers lost six of their last eight games. This player prop is more of a gut handicapping than any stats backing it up. I look for Lebron to have a big night to start the second half of the campaign for the Lakers.

"LeBron knows in order for them to be the team to beat minus AD, he has to be great, and he says: 'it's go time.' LeBron will be the 2021 MVP." pic.twitter.com/qY3y6dmnlF
