After a week of no NBA games they are finally back. Hollywood Picks shares his best NBA player prop picks for today. Read on to find out why you should have your eye on Luka Doncic, Jaden Ivey, and more on Thursday night.

NBA Player Prop Picks Today: Targeting Luka Doncic, Jaden Ivey, and More on Thursday Night

There are a few players today that I will targeting for their straight lines separately for Thursday's NBA slate. I believe these guys all have great lines and will be fresh and ready to play after the All Star Break. The three players we will be targeting today are Luka Doncic, Jaden Ivey, Walker Kessler.

NBA Player Props for Thursday

Luka Doncic Over 30.5 Points (-145) Click here to see which sportsbook has the best odds

Luka Doncic is averaging 34.2 points per game this season and against the Phoenix Suns, he has cleared this line and crushed them in four out of five games, and the reason he missed in one game is because he got injured three minutes into the game. He has faced the Suns twice this season and has soared over this line having 50 and 34 points respectively.

Luka shoots 42% of his shots from the mid-range and from pull-ups. The Suns this season allow the sixth most mid-range shots and allow the tenth most pull-ups.

Jaden Ivey Over 16.5 Points (-140) Click here to see which sportsbook has the best odds

I really like this line today versus Bennedict Mathurin who was trash talking him during the Rising Stars game and I believe Jaden Ivey will try to get his revenge during this game. This is a great matchup against the Indiana Pacers, who are who one of the fastest paced teams in the NBA this season.

Also, Ivey scored 45.6% of his points in the paint and the Pacers allow the most points in the paint this season. Since the Bojan Bogdanovic trade, Ivey has been the second scoring option on the Detroit Pistons and scored 18 and 25 points against the Pacers this season. He also has gone over this line in three out of five games since the trade.

Walker Kessler Over 7.5 Rebounds (-130) Click here to see which sportsbook has the best odds

Since the Kelly Olynk trade, Walker Kessler has returned to the starting lineup seeing at least 25+ minutes in all four games. He has also gone over this line in 17 out of 23 games this year with 25+ minutes.

Charolette has been dominated by centers this season, allowing the second most points + rebounds to them over the past 30 games. Kessler has averaged 13.3 points and 9.7 rebounds in 23 mins in three career games versus the Charlotte Hornets.
