If you tailed my NBA player prop bet from last night in the Clippers-Kings game, congratulations on the win. I do apologize for the sweat, though. Tonight my pick will look much the same, as it’s a prop I’ve been playing frequently since the Clippers acquired James Harden.

Best Clippers-Warriors Player Prop Today: Paul George
Let’s start with how Paul George has played since James Harden joined him as a teammate. Here’s a hint: It’s been magical. In 12 games, George has averaged close to seven rebounds and 3.8 assists per game. We’re not factoring in his points, as we’re avoiding that angle tonight. The player prop market we’re backing is rebounds + assists, a market George has crushed.
Tonight will be George’s second game on the second leg of a back-to-back this season. That doesn’t concern me. He played 40 minutes last night, but the Clippers only had to travel from Sacramento to San Francisco. These games against Western Conference contenders mean a ton, especially with a spread of 5 points.
George has cashed the over of 9.5 rebounds + assists in 10 of 12 games with Harden, including nine in a row. George led the Clippers with seven assists last night and only reeled in three rebounds — much lower than his season average. He had 13 assist opportunities in that game and only converted three of his seven rebounding chances. Expect positive regression tonight against a Warriors team that ranks in the bottom 10 in rebounds allowed. With Draymond Green back for Golden State, it should be a tougher challenge, but look for George to stuff the stat sheet again.
