JutPicks' best NBA player prop for Thursday: Drummond shines in East showdown
Pickswise was nice enough to give me the opportunity to write my plays up for you all. For those of you who don’t know me, they refer to me as JutPicks on Twitter. I post all my plays with brief writeups every day. Now I get to write even more with no character limit!
I pride myself on being as transparent as they come. My NBA record from last season and this season are listed in my bio alongside my MLB record. Without further ado, let’s dive into my favorite play for Thursday.
Check out our picks for all of tonight’s NBA games!
Andre Drummond (BKN) over 21.5 points + rebounds (-110)

The Brooklyn Nets host the Milwaukee Bucks in an Eastern Conference showdown. We are potentially looking at a first-round matchup if the Nets can make it out of the play-in tournament.
Andre Drummond has been just what the Nets’ frontcourt needed. A significant body that rebounds well and defends the paint. In 18 games with the Nets, Drummond is averaging 12.3 points and 9.9 rebounds. He is over this line in 9 of 18 games, but more importantly in 7 of his last 10.
The Bucks finally have Brook Lopez back healthy and is playing around 25 minutes per game. Lopez being inserted back in the lineup helps Drummond since he will not have to defend Bobby Portis out on the perimeter all game long. I expect a competitive game between 2 of the most talented teams in the Eastern Conference and Drummond to play around 27+ minutes.
