NBA Player Prop & Pick
Taurean Prince, Over 1.5 3-Pointers Made
|Odds||Over 1.5 3-Pointers Made (-120)|
|Time||10 p.m. ET|
The Timberwolves had quite the season finale on Sunday. While they beat the Pelicans to clinch the eighth seed in the Western Conference, they lost two key starters to ill-timed punches.
With Jaden McDaniels and Rudy Gobert unavailable against the Lakers, Taurean Prince should slot into a significant role. The seven-year veteran played 35 minutes against the Pelicans, and he is a candidate to start on Tuesday.
Whether he starts or not, Prince should see significant minutes — and when he’s played at least 26 minutes this season, he’s nailed at least two threes in 11-of-16 games.
The sharpshooter gets a quality matchup as the Lakers have allowed the 11th-most threes per game and the third-most wide-open 3-point attempts per game.
I have the Baylor product projected at 30 minutes, which should yield six attempts from long range. I’m comfortable playing this line for the 38% 3-point shooter up to -145.
Pick:Taurean Prince Over 1.5 3-Pointers Made (-120 | Play to -145).
