Memphis Grizzlies vs. Milwaukee Bucks Player Prop: Trust Tyus Jones in this Same Game Parlay
The Memphis Grizzlies are hosting the Milwaukee Bucks tonight, as Memphis tries to stay hot without Ja Morant. Tyus Jones, their fill-in starting point guard for Ja, has been a huge reason for the team's success in spite of Morant's absence. The Grizzlies are 16-2 without their rising superstar and Jones has served as a high-level playmaker during this stretch and I love the value we're getting on the veteran point guard over at DraftKings today.

*Odds Available at DraftKings at Time of Publishing*
Leg 1: Tyus Jones 2+ Assists (1st Quarter)
Leg 2: Tyus Jones Over 5.5 Assists
Tyus Jones has started 18 games in Ja Morant's absence this season. He's cashed this parlay in 12 of these 18 games, averaging 6.7 assists per game and 2.2 first quarter APG.
Most of these misses can easily be attributed to blowouts, too. And, with Memphis favored by just 1.5 points in this contest, I like Jones to see a full complement of minutes against Milwaukee this evening.

Jones has dished out 2+ first-quarter dimes and 6+ total times in 9 of 13 games when seeing at least 30 minutes of action this season. He also finished with at least 6 assists in 6 of 9 games without Ja last season, averaging 6.6 APG.
The Grizzlies' dependable backup has filled in for Ja four times over the last two weeks, and he's seeing a similar number of assist opportunities as the Memphis star. His 12.3 potential assists per game over his last four starts should offer plenty of opportunities for him to produce against a fast-paced Milwaukee team.
The Bucks are giving up the 8th-most assists to point guards this season in addition to allowing the 8th most APG overall. Their fast pace should also open up plenty of extra possessions, especially when coupled with the Grizzlies' fast pace. The Bucks and Grizzlies each rank in the top 3 in Pace over the last 20 games -- Milwaukee is allowing the 5th most APG to its opponents during this stretch.
If EITHER TEAM hits a 3-Pointer in Grizzlies vs Bucks, you'll win $200
A high-scoring contest should be on tap for tonight, indicated by the 233-point over/under for the game. These teams combined for 240 points in their last meeting and Memphis has posted at least 120 points in five of their last six games, so Jones should be instrumental in their high-powered attack this evening.
Milwaukee has conceded at least 6 assists to the opposing starting point guard in 11 straight games, and I like Jones' chances to make it 12 in a row tonight. And, if you're unable to get 1st Quarter lines, Over 6.5 Assists at +odds is a perfectly fine alternative.
