PrizePicks NBA Player Projections | March 19
Damian Lillard Under 35.5 Points
While it is never easy to go against a player as talented as Lillard, the matchup against the Clippers may not be in his favor. The Clippers are a long and switchable team and they have the defensive tools to make it difficult for Lillard to get his points. Furthermore, as the postseason approaches, the Clippers are only going to get better defensively. While Lillard may still have a big night, 35.5 points is a big number, and Stokastic’s PrizePicks NBA Player Projections Tool does not believe he’ll be able to reach it, project him Lillard to score 33.5 points.
Giannis Antetokounmpo Over 31.5
Giannis has been playing well lately, and he will continue his good form against the Toronto Raptors. While the Raptors have a solid defensive unit, they have not been as good as they should be. Giannis will be able to exploit their defense, especially in transition, where he excels. Stokastic’s PrizePicks NBA Player Projections Tool projects Giannis to score 34.5 points.
