With the NBA back to kick off the second half of its 2022-23 schedule, we're taking a look at some key props amongst some of the league's most exciting players!
Off the back of an All-Star Game MVP, Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics will be under the spotlight when he faces the Indiana Pacers. Brandon Ingram and his New Orleans Pelicans are looking to get back on track against the Toronto Raptors. And Julius Randle hopes to maintain his strong play when the New York Knicks take on the Washington Wizards.

After an MVP-worthy performance in the 2023 NBA All-Star Game, Tatum returns looking to secure the Celtics' position at the top of the East. At DraftKings Sportsbook, Tatum is a +110 to clear 4.5 assists when he faces the Indiana Pacers.
On the season, Tatum is averaging 30.6 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 4.5 assists on 46.4% from the field and 35.7% from the three-point range. Before the All-Star break, Tatum averaged 28.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 5.8 assists through his most recent five games.
We're expecting Tatum to clear 4.5 assists against the Indiana Pacers with ease. He's cleared 4.5 assists in 26 of his 55 appearances this season, as his one-on-one play opens up plenty of opportunities to create for others. Against a Pacers team that is 27th in assists allowed, expect Tatum's playmaking to be locked in.
Brandon Ingram has missed quite a few games this season, but he'll look to turn it up a notch when the NBA season resumes. At PointsBet, Ingram is a -105 to clear 1.5 three-pointers when he takes on the Toronto Raptors.
On the season, Ingram is averaging 22.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.9 assists, and 1.5 threes per game on 46.9% from the field and 40.7% from the three-point range. Through his last four games before the All-Star break, Ingram has averaged 28.5 points, 4.5 assists, 3.5 rebounds, and 1.5 threes on 55.1% from the field and 54.5% from three.
Ingram has been in great form and the Pelicans expect it to continue against the Toronto Raptors. New Orleans face a team who are 28th in the league in three-point field goal efficiency allowed and 18th in three-point field goals allowed. With Toronto's shift to a more traditional lineup, Ingram should have plenty of opportunities to punish the Raptors from three.
New York Knicks All-Star Julius Randle is hoping to maintain his excellent play when the second half of the NBA season kicks off. At FanDuel Sportsbook, Randle is a +110 to clear 10.5 rebounds when he takes on the Washington Wizards.
On the season, Randle is averaging 24.8 points, 10.8 rebounds, and 4.1 assists on 46.0% from the field and 33.8% for three-point range. Through his last five games before the All-Star break, Randle averaged 25.2 points, 10.2 rebounds, and 2.4 assists on 47.4% from the field and 34.8% from three-point range.
Randle has cleared 10.5 rebounds in 31 of his 60 appearances for the Knicks this season. Against the Wizards Randle has collected 31 rebounds in two games, with his team splitting victory. Given the quality of Washington's front-court on the glass, we expect Randle to maintain his production and clear 10.5.
