NBA Tuesday night will be showcasing some of the league's brightest stars across five different matchups!
When the Sacramento Kings and the Philadelphia 76ers face-off, James Harden's scoring form will be tested after just three games back from injury. Stephen Curry's legendary shooting will be put to the test when his Golden State Warriors face the Milwaukee Bucks. And the hottest team in the league, the New Orleans Pelicans, will put out star man Zion Williamson for another big night against an ailing Utah Jazz team.
Let's check out the bets!
James Harden is finally back for the Sixers and he's definitely been taking it slow over his three games back. At bet365, Harden is a -115 to clear 21.5 points when he faces the Sacramento Kings.
On the season, Harden has averaged 22.2 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 10.4 assists on 42.5% shooting from the field and 34.5% shooting form three-point range. Since missing 14 games, Harden has returned to an average of 22.7 points, 11.7 assists, and 5.7 rebounds on 38.0% shooting from the field and 37.0% shooting from three over his last three games.
The Sacramento Kings are a fast-paced team, but their defense is certainly lacking. Against the league's 24th-ranked three-point defense, an engaged Harden should be putting up one of his better nights of the season.
One of the NBA's biggest stars, Stephen Curry will be looking to maintain his brilliant scoring form on the road. At FanDuel, Curry is a -108 to score more than 4.5 threes when he takes on the Milwaukee Bucks.
Stephen Curry has been excellent this season, averaging 30.0 points, 7.0 assists, and 6.6 rebounds on 50.2% shooting from the field and 43.5% shooting from three-point range. In his last game, a win over the Boston Celtics, Curry posted 32 points, 7 assists, and 6 rebounds while also converting on 6 of his 11 three-point field goals.
Milwaukee are a solid three-point shooting team, but the Warriors' ball movement is what will help their offense overcome them. Curry certainly isn't shy, attempting 11.8 threes per game and converting on 5.1 of them. Clearing 4.5 threes projects to be a good wager for Curry.
New Orleans Pelicans star man Zion Williamson has returned to play and has not disappointed the fans. At PointsBet, Williamson is a -115 to clear 35.5 points and rebounds combined when he takes on the Utah Jazz.
On the season, Williamson is averaging 25.0 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 4.2 assists on 60.9% shooting from the field and 35.7% shooting from three-point range. Over his last six games though, Williamson has been averaging 31.2 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 4.8 assists on 68.0% from the field and 40.0% from three-point range.
Williamson is on a tremendous run of form as of late, and the Utah Jazz are incredibly shorthanded. With even fewer bodies available to try and limit Williamson in the paint, it looks inevitable that he put on another big night of the production.
