The last game of the NBA Christmas Day schedule features a Western Conference matchup between the Phoenix Suns and Denver Nuggets — and one last NBA player prop pick for Christmas.

This game will be a huge showdown for both teams in terms of tiebreakers because of how close the Western Conference standings are thus far.

One area that the Nuggets have excelled at this season is shooting the 3-ball. In fact, the Nuggets are the best 3-point percentage team in the entire league. The Nuggets have three different players on their roster who are shooting it above 40% from beyond the arc, which might give you an indication of where we're heading for our NBA player prop pick for Suns vs Nuggets on Christmas.

One of those players is Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. KCP leads the Nuggets in 3-point percentage (46.3%) thus far this season. Further, he is averaging two makes per game.

However, over the last five games, KCP is shooting the 3-pointer at 47.3% and has knocked down at least two 3-pointers in three straight games.

Despite not giving up tons of makes from beyond the arc, the Suns do rank No. 24 in opponent 3-point percentage. In fact, that number has stayed consistent over the last five games, as they are allowing their opponents to shoot 39.7% from the 3-point line (24th).

With the attention Nikola Jokic commands on the offensive side for the Nuggets, I expect shooters like KCP to find the open shots and knock down at least two of them.
