We have an 8-game NBA slate on Wednesday night and the best matchups were reserved for the late slots: Milwaukee Bucks (+3) vs Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings (+3.5) vs Los Angeles Lakers. The Cavaliers, Hawks, Magic, Rockets, and Hawks are all on the tail end of a back-to-back. Let’s dive into my best NBA player prop bet for tonight, targeting the Kings vs Lakers game. I am 5-0 in my NBA player props on Pickswise since the all-star break. Let’s keep this rolling! You can also check out our NBA picks for tonight’s big games.

D’Angelo Russell (LAL) under 5.5 assists (-128) 

Odds available at FanDuel Sportsbook at the time of publishing.

The Kings allow the 3rd-fewest field-goal attempts in the restricted area and the fewest above-the-break threes over their last 10 games. For D’Angelo Russell, 68% of his assists come from those two zones. This is a tough matchup for him as a primary ball-handler whose ego has to be at an all-time high following the other night against the Thunder. He has not hit this line in 3 straight games and many of his big assist performances have come in the absence of LeBron in the lineup. The only thing that would scare me is if LeBron is a late scratch as his questionable designation is nightly. 1u
