Turner Sports booked what should have been a massive superstar matchup for tonight by putting the Bucks at Lakers game on national television as the first part of a doubleheader.

But LeBron James is listed as out, and that means Giannis Antetokounmpo, Damian Lillard and Anthony Davis have to accept Khris Middleton as the fourth-best player in this game.

Middleton is a former All-Star and is coming off a triple-double performance, so he is somewhat worthy. But no LeBron is a bummer for what should still be an excellent doubleheader nonetheless with Bucks-Lakers being followed by Mavericks-Kings from Sacramento.

NBA Player Props Today for Tuesday, March 26, 2024

D’Angelo Russell Most Points

This is an enticing line on a player who two games ago had four 3-pointers, setting the record for most in a single season by any member of the Lakers. And because James is out, we expect him to be firing away tonight more than usual (he jacked up 10 3-pointers two games ago vs. Philly). Russell will need an epic scoring night, but he has it in him. With Davis possibly on a minutes limit, we like it even more … but only because of the +1100 price.

The pick: D’Angelo Russell Most Points (+1100)

Steph Curry double-double

Curry is coming off a game in which he had only three assists, thus the big line of +1400. But Curry had 11 rebounds the previous game against Indiana, and we expect his minutes to be a lot higher than the 30 that he played the other night.

The pick: Steph Curry to have a double-double (+1400)

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Zion Williamson to both score 30+ points

Zion is coming off a 13-for-14 shooting performance last time out vs. Detroit, and Shai is coming off his worst game of the season, scoring only 12 against Milwaukee. Gilgeous-Alexander scored at least 30 in three of his previous four games, and he had 31 the last time these teams met. He should bounce back nicely.

The pick: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Zion Williamson to both score at least 30 points (+400)

Doncic 12+ rebounds and Sabonis 10+ assists

There is no wager available putting two triple-doubles together, but we like this wager even more because of its simplicity and the probability that both ends hit. Doncic goes for 12+ rebounds regularly (he averages 9.0) and Sabonis does the same with assists (he averages a team-high 8.3).

The pick: Luka Doncic to have at least 12 rebounds and Domantas Sabonis to have at least 10 assists (+650)

Luka Doncic had his 19th triple double last night, and Sabonis leads the NBA with 25 triple-doubles.
