Like most Lithuanians, I started watching basketball from the age of six. I'm based out in London and played basketball at the University of Lincoln here in the UK. I had always had an interest in the NBA but things really took off in the summer of 2010. That year Linas Kleiza led Lithuania to 3rd place at the World Championships and signed with the Toronto Raptors to replace the departing Chris Bosh. I've been a Raptors fan since that day and I've not missed a game since. I've been handicapping games for more than a decade, specializing in player props.

With no NBA games on tomorrow, 24 teams are in action tonight. Plenty of interesting games all-around including the Sacramento Kings, who will be looking to keep their ascend up the Western Conference standings going. Their 7-game win streak has seen them climb to 3rd, just a half game behind the leaders. Tonight, the Atlanta Hawks will be in their way.

You can find our full NBA previews here. But now lets dive right into my player prop selections.

Myles Turner over 1.5 made threes (+140)

The Timberwolves are currently 29th in opponent 3-pointers per game and 10th in opponent points in the paint. Major reason for this is the size they possess on the interior with Rudy Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns. With their presence, opponents look to step out to the perimeter, and that is exactly what Myles Turner is likely to do tonight. The center is more than capable of stretching the floor, making 36.4% of his attempts. As a result he could be a key piece in unlocking the paint for the Indiana Pacers. Gobert has not got the fastest feet and could struggle closing out to the perimeter to contest his shots. He should have a great chance of knocking down a couple tonight.

Kevin Huerter over 15.5 points (-113)

Kevin Durant recently had high praise for Kevin Huerter, claiming he is currently playing on the level of Steph Curry and Klay Thompson. It is easy to see why, with the guard knocking down 50% of his 3-pointers this season. As a result of his hot shooting, he has been able to score 16 or more points in 5 of his last 6 games. Tonight going up against his former team, look for Huerter to be more aggressive than usual. Clint Capela is not someone who is comfortable outside of the paint so look for the Kings guard to get clean looks when running a give-and-go with Domantas Sabonis. With his efficiency, he should be able to extend his scoring streak.

Jonas Valanciunas over 9.5 rebounds (+102)

Jonas Valanciunas is coming into tonight’s game after a bounce back rebounding performance in his last outing. He finished the game with 13-rebounds and could be set to follow that up against a favourable opponent tonight. The San Antonio Spurs could be without Jakob Poeltl tonight, weakening their presence on the interior. The Spurs are also 27th in true shooting percentage over the last 10 games, giving the center plenty of defensive rebounds to chase down. Look for him to be a big factor on the boards tonight as a result.

Steph Curry over 6.5 assists (-120)

After a strong start to the season scoring the rock, Steph Curry has put his passing hat on of late. In the last 2 games he has accumulated 25 assists and he could be set to continue dishing the ball tonight. Up against him tonight will be the Los Angeles Clippers, who have an active shot blocker in the paint in Ivica Zubac. Going up against such a big normally helps the guards assists numbers as when confronted in the paint by the help defender, dishing the ball becomes a more favorable option. Look for Curry to be doing just that tonight. With the shooters that surround him on the perimeter, his teammates should be able to convert the chances he creates here.
