NBA Player Prop Picks for Tuesday: Riding with Klay Thompson

We only have two games tonight for the NBA, and one of them will be one of the worst teams in the NBA, the Detriot Pistons and the Golden State Warriors. The Pistons have looked like a G League team so far this season, and they do not have a ton to be proud of thus far.

The one bright spot for this team has been rookie guard Cade Cunnigham. Cade has led the team in points and assists this season and looks to be the star that we heard he would be. The Pistons have not had many bright spots other than that and they have struggled to stay competitive in a lot of games this season.

The Warriors on the flip side of things, have been one of the best teams in all of the NBA this season. Their run of late has been their worst of the season, but they still have been able to hold on to the number two seed in the Western Conference. Two weeks ago, the Warriors got some great news when they played the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Star guard Klay Thompson returned after a long absence due to a torn ACL. Thompson came back and scored seventeen points in twenty minutes of action. Getting Klay back makes this team perhaps the most dangerous and best in all of the NBA. Klay will look to make an impact in this matchup tonight.

The Play I found in this game will be on a prop, and it is a prop concerning the player I was just talking about in Klay Thompson. Thompson comes into this game struggling to shoot 40% from the floor on the offensive end. I believe Klay comes into this game in a great buy-low spot.

The Warrior’s offense will still flow-thru Steph and Klay in this game. Thompsons minutes should continue to pick up and his usage rating. Thompson has gotten his shots up when he has gotten into games despite them not falling yet. I still believe Klay is one of the best shooters in the game, and this line is just far too low for his ability. He is also playing against one of the worst teams in all of the NBA in the Detroit Pistons, so I feel he will have his way in this game. I am rolling the dice with the superstar at plus money tonight to have his first breakout game since returning.
