DeMar DeRozan is one of the league's most dangerous offensive players, and his non-scoring production will be the focus on Wednesday night. At PointsBet, DeRozan is a +105 to clear 9.5 assists and rebounds combined when he faces the Philadelphia 76ers. Given DeRozan's recent form, clearing 9.5 is definitely in play.

On the season, DeRozan is averaging 25.4 points, 5.1 assists, and 4.7 rebounds on 51.2% from the field and 33.9% from the three-point range. Through his last five games, DeRozan has averaged 31.6 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 4.8 assists on 52.4% from the field and 50.0% from three-point range. In his most recent game, also against the Sixers, DeRozan put up 25.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 2.0 assists on 45.5% from the field.

DeRozan has been in excellent form as of late, even pushing the Bulls back into the Play-In Tournament position - expect DeRozan to remain productive across the board. DeRozan has cleared 9.5 assists and rebounds combined four times through his last five games. He's also collected ten or more assists and rebounds combined in 29 of his 65 appearances this season.

RJ Barrett's production has dropped this season, but he's still been positive for the Knicks. The Heat present a formidable defense for the Knicks to manage, so Barrett will be forced to be a conscious passer. At bet365, Barrett is a +160 to clear 2.5 assists when he faces the Miami Heat.

On the season, Barrett is averaging 19.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 2.6 assists on 40.2% from the field and 32.0% from three-point range. Barrett's taken on a more efficient scoring role as of late, averaging 19.4 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 1.6 assists on 50.7% from the field and 25.0% from three-point range. He'll try to enforce his playmaking against a Heat team that he's 23.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 3.0 assists against this season.

The Miami Heat are known for their stifling perimeter defense, so being forced into the passer role should prop up his assist numbers. Barett has cleared 2.5 assists in just one of his last five games this season. He's also collected three or more assists in 31 of his 66 appearances.

Since returning to the Lakers lineup from injury, point guard D'Angelo Russell has been very productive from the point of attack. At Caesars Sportsbook, Russell is a +104 to clear 6.5 assists when he faces the Phoenix Suns. Russell should be able to create against a shorthanded Suns team in his current playmaking form.

Russell has outperformed his regular season averages since returning from injury. On the season, Russell has averaged 17.9 points, 6.2 assists, and 3.1 rebounds on 46.3% from the field and 39.0% from three-point range. Since returning from injury, Russell has averaged 19.4 points, 7.0 assists, and 2.8 rebounds on 42.5% from the field and 35.6% from three-point range.

Over his last six games, Russell has collected more than 6.5 assists four times. On the season, he's cleared 6.5 assists in 30 of his 64 appearances. The Suns hold teams to 23.3 assists per game (4th in the NBA), but as Los Angeles' primary playmaker against a Suns team lacking Durant and Ayton, Russell should thrive creating for his teammates.
