Welcome to a new week of the NBA 3-Point Play.
Monday's NBA slate is overshadowed by the goings on in the football world, but there are still a handful of spots to take advantage of.
Two of my three props for the night come from teams affected by health and safety protocols. The San Antonio Spurs and Portland Trail Blazers are short-handed and will turn to their best available players to keep up with the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets, respectively.
The other prop play is one that was added late in the afternoon after a player entered health and safety protocols.
Monday NBA 3-Point Play
Overall Record: 7-11
Miles Bridges Over 18.5 Points (-110)
My original pick from the Milwaukee-Charlotte game was Kelly Oubre, but he was placed in health and safety protocols on Monday afternoon.
I've pivoted to Miles Bridges, who has 19 or more points in each of his last three games.
I don't trust either P.J. Washington to Jalen McDaniels to fill up the stat sheet off the bench in Oubre's place. I assume some of the shots Oubre would've taken will go to the starters.
Bridges had 21 points on 16 field-goal attempts on Saturday against the Bucks and his three-point stroke has looked better lately. He has eight three-pointers in the last three games.
Dejounte Murray Over 19.5 Points (-120)
I'm willing to bet on Dejounte Murray every night until Derrick White and Keldon Johnson return from health and safety protocols.
Murray produced 22, 27 and 19 points in his three games back from protocols, which coincided with White and Johnson heading to the list.
Murray attempted over 20 field goals in each of those three contests and the Spurs likely will not be affected by the back-to-back fatigue since they played at Noon yesterday in Brooklyn.
Nassir Little Over 12.5 Points (-108)
Nassir Little is Portland's No. 2 scoring option behind Anfernee Simons at the moment.
Damian Lillard was ruled out for another eight games with his abdomen injury and Norman Powell entered health and safety protocols on Sunday.
Little played over 30 minutes in each of his last four games. He attempted over 10 field goals in three of those contests.
Thirteen points is attainable in any of the next few games for Little since he and Simons will be asked to do the bulk of the scoring.
