NBA 3-Point Play: Kevin Porter Jr., Cole Anthony, Malik Monk

Kevin Porter Jr. has been an assist machine for the Houston Rockets.

Porter averaged 6.8 assists per game in January and he could be in for a fantastic start to February.

The 21-year-old guard faces his former team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, in Houston on Wednesday night. Porter was dealt away by the Eastern Conference side last season.

Porter's in-form passing combined with extra motivation to succeed against his former team makes him an ideal player prop candidate for the 3-Point Play.

NBA 3-Point Play

Overall Record: 30-36

Kevin Porter Jr. Over 6.5 Assists

Kevin Porter Jr. resides in a revenge spot.

Porter was traded by the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Houston Rockets after a tumultuous end to his time in Ohio.

Porter settled in nicely to his role in Houston and he will be extra motivated to play well against the Cavaliers, who come into Houston without Darius Garland.

Porter has seven or more assists in his last six games and he should be the main creator once again in the Houston offense.

It is also worth looking into taking Porter to record a double-double at +295 at DraftKings because he has scored in double figures in his last seven games.

Cole Anthony Over 5.5 Assists

Cole Anthony has six or more assists in each of his last four games.

The Orlando Magic point guard is coming off a nine-assist outing against the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday.

Anthony and the Orlando Magic face an Indiana Pacers team without Domantas Sabonis. That should help Anthony's passes into Mo Bamba, Wendell Carter and others.

Indiana gives up the ninth-most points per game in the NBA and it may have trouble containing the Magic because of all of its injury absences.

Malik Monk Over 17.5 Points

Malik Monk is the No. 3 scorer, and at times the No. 2 scorer, in the Los Angeles Lakers lineup when LeBron James is out injured.

Monk and the Lakers face a terrific matchup against the Portland Trail Blazers, who have the worst defense against three-pointers in the NBA.

Monk is coming off a 33-point performance on Sunday versus the Atlanta Hawks and he had 18 points on New Year's Eve against Portland in a game in which James scored 43 points.
