The first Saturday Night primetime game between the Golden State Warriors and the Philadelphia Sixers takes center stage in the NBA tonight. Stephen Curry is on the verge of breaking the all-time record for three-point shots made. I don’t think he gets it done tonight as he needs 10 three-point shots to get there. However, the stars will be shining tonight in this matchup. Below are my three player props for tonight’s matchup Warriors-Sixers matchup!

Saturday Night NBA Player Props
Draymond Green Rebounds + Assists Over 15.5
There is no secret that Draymond Green is the catalyst and “point guard” for the Warriors. Thus far this season, Green is leading the Warriors in rebounds and assists per game. Furthermore, over the last five games, Green has exceeded this projection in four of those games. Additionally, these two teams matched up against each other earlier this season and Green logged nine rebounds and seven assists. Green should be vital as usual for the Warriors to beat the Sixers tonight. I will take the Over on this projection!
Andrew Wiggins Over 1.5 Three-Point Shots Made
Andrew Wiggins is shooting 41.5% from the three-point line this season, which is a career high. In fact, Wiggins has improved his three-point shooting percentage over the last four seasons. Furthermore, Wiggins has knocked down two or more three-point shots in four straight games. Wiggins also knocked down two against the Sixers in a matchup earlier this season. Over the last five games, the Sixers are allowing their opponents to knock down 12.5 three-point shots per game, which ranks 17th in the league. The attention Curry receives on the offensive end opens up the opportunity for Wiggins to get looks.
Joel Embiid Over 11.5 Rebounds
Joel Embiid on the season is averaging 11 rebounds per game. But I believe this is a game where he should be able to have success grabbing rebounds against the Warriors’ interior. Embiid has exceeded this projection in six out of the last eight games. Furthermore, the Warriors over the last seven days are allowing opposing centers to grab 16.7 rebounds per game.
