The Saturday Night primetime features two teams that are struggling, to say the least. What was supposed to be a stellar matchup this late in the season finds two teams trying to break out of a slump. The Lakers will host the Warriors tonight in Los Angeles. Last week, my player props ended up going 2-1. I look to continue the winning ways tonight in this matchup between the Lakers and Warriors. Let me get right into it!

Saturday Night NBA Player Props: Warriors vs. Lakers
LeBron James Over 8.5 Rebounds
LeBron James has plenty of success rebounding the basketball for the Lakers against the Warriors. This season, LeBron is averaging eight rebounds per game. However, that average goes up to nine per game without Anthony Davis. Further, over James’s last three games against the Warriors, he has been in double-digits rebounding. In fact, LeBron is averaging 12 rebounds per game against the Warriors over the last three games. Despite the Warriors having recent success rebounding the ball, I believe James can continue his rebounding success tonight against the Warriors. I love this player prop to go over tonight between the Warriors and Lakers!
Klay Thompson Over 2.5 Threes Made
Klay Thompson seems to love to play against the Lakers. In the last game against the Lakers, Klay made four three-point shots. Further, over his last four career games against the Lakers, Klay has knocked down at least three three-point shots in each of those games. Yes, this information does go back to 2019 but the Lakers struggle against the shooting guard position. In fact, against the shooting guard position, the Lakers are allowing 23.9 points per game and close to four three-point shots made per game. I expect Thompson’s success to continue against the Lakers.
Stephen Curry Over 1.5 Steals
I am going to take a shot here with Steph Curry getting two steals for the Warriors. Over his last four career games, Curry has at least three steals in three out of the last four games. However, the Lakers are allowing opposing teams to average 10.5 steals after the All-Star break which ranks #28 in the entire league. Furthermore, the Lakers are allowing opposing point guards to average three steals per game over the last seven days. Additionally, the Lakers are also averaging 15.3 turnovers per game since the All-Star break, which ranks #23 in the league. At plus money odds, I love this prop bet!
