Kyrie Irving is averaging 22.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 5.4 assists in his five games back, shooting it at a 50 percent clip.

Uncle Drew is coming off his best game yet this season, putting up 30 points, seven assists, and three rebounds. He also put up 27 points, nine assists, and seven rebounds on Monday.

With Kevin Durant out, the Brooklyn Nets need Irving to step up once again and carry his team to victory, and with his ability to create his own shot off the dribble, finish at the rim and shoot the three, he can easily hit the over of this line on points alone in his sleep.

Giannis Antetokounmpo OVER 47.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists

Giannis Antetokounmpo has been otherworldly recently, averaging 31.4 points, 10.1 rebounds, and 6.9 assists per game over his last seven games.

Antetokounmpo put up 33 points, 15 rebounds, and seven assists in his last game, which came in a heavyweight matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies.

We all know Antetokounmpo has a great sense of humor, but when he’s out there on the court, he’s all business.

The Chicago Bulls stand in the way of Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks in their quest to earn the first seed in the conference, so expect the “Greek Freak” to put up a great all-around performance.

LeBron James OVER 45.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists

The Los Angeles Lakers have been awful lately, as they’ve lost four of their last five games.

However, that is to no fault of LeBron James, who is averaging 29.8 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 5.4 assists during that stretch. In his last game, he put up 30 points, 12 rebounds, and five assists.

He also recently accomplished something that has never been done before, becoming the first player ever to join the 30,000+ point, 10,000+ rebound, and 9,000+ assist club.

With an easy win right there for the taking against the Orlando Magic, James and the Lakers know that they can’t let this one get away from them. Expect him to go absolutely crazy.

Joel Embiid OVER 44.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists

Well, unless you’ve been living under a rock, you should know by now that Joel Embiid put up 50 points in 27:03 minutes of play the other night, the second-lowest minutes total in a 50 point game in NBA history.

Embiid is as rare of a talent you can find, especially out of a seven-foot body. He’s a dangerous post scorer but can also take defenders off the dribble and drive to the rim like a guard.

Embiid is sizzling hot right now, and with his ability to grab rebounds, he should be able to hit the over with ease.

Trae Young OVER 28.5 Points

Trae Young is averaging 32.0 points on 49.1 percent shooting, including 42.9 percent from three over his last three games.

Young is about as unguardable as they come, with his ability to bamboozle opposing defenders by putting the ball through their legs and finding cracks to exploit to get to the rim for some crafty finishes.

His ability to pull up and hit the three from anywhere makes him that much deadlier.

In going up against the Miami Heat tonight, expect Young to bring his “A” game with him to give his Atlanta Hawks a chance to win their third straight game.
