Another city rivalry game will be played tonight, and that’s why you don’t want to miss out on the Lakers vs Clippers Player Prop Bets for Tuesday, January 23. The Los Angeles Lakers are underdogs against the Los Angeles Clippers who won ten of the last 12 games and are hoping to get the eighth consecutive home win.

Lakers vs Clippers Player Prop Bets – D’Angelo Russell Over 2.5 Threes Made (-105)

D’Angelo Russell is the team’s third scorer with 16.3 ppg, and now when LeBron James is out with an ankle injury, he became the No. 2 option on offense behind Anthony Davis. D-Lo scored 20+ points in four of the last five games, but what interests me most is his good perimeter shooting.

Namely, Russell made at least three triples in six of the last eight games. He is 36.5% from downtown in his career, and against the Clippers, Russell is 38.2% from beyond the arc in 20 games. The former Brooklyn Net made three triples in each of the two H2H duels against the Clippers this season.

Russell struggled from the floor (5-14) and scored 13 points the last time he met the Clippers, but he did make three shots from downtown. He nailed six long shots in the most recent game against Portland. I am pretty confident in this pick.

James Harden Over 8.5 Assists (-141)

James Harden doesn’t have the same role on the Clippers offense he used to have in his previous teams. He is not even a No. 2 option when it comes to scoring, which is why his average dropped from 24.4 ppg (career average) to 17.1 ppg this season.

On the other hand, his assists numbers went up. In his career, Harden averaged 7.1 dishes per game, while in this campaign, he averages 8.5 apg. With scorers around him such as Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, it’s no wonder Harden registered 9+ assists in nine of the previous 11 games.

The Lakers allow 8.8 apg to the opposing point guards, so I expect The Beard to have nine or ten in this one. In the last duel against the Lakers, Harden struggled from the floor (4-13), but he did record nine dishes. Another reasonable pick for our Lakers vs Clippers Player Prop Bets.
