NBA 3-Point Play: Nikola Vucevic, Terry Rozier, Pascal Siakam

Wednesday's Chicago Bulls-Charlotte Hornets matchup possesses the largest over/under on the NBA board.

The Eastern Conference clash's projected points total is at least 10 higher than four of the other five contests on the schedule.

So of course I'm going to use the Bulls-Hornets game as the foundation for Wednesday's NBA 3-Point Play.

There are so many fascinating angles to hit, but one of them is very clear and that's where today's piece starts.

NBA 3-Point Play

Overall Record: 42-42 (1-2 Tuesday)

Nikola Vucevic Over 20.5 Points

Nikola Vucevic produced 30 points and 14 rebounds in the November 29 clash between the Chicago Bulls and Charlotte Hornets.

Vucevic faces an ideal matchup down low against a Hornets defense that allowed 20-point double-doubles to Bam Adebayo and Pascal Siakam in the last two games.

Vucevic recently went on a stretch of 30, 36 and 23 points to kick off February and he should feast in his matchup against Mason Plumlee and the other Charlotte interior players.

Terry Rozier Over 3.5 Threes

Chicago gives up the third-worst three-point percentage to opponents in the NBA.

Terry Rozier knocked down six three-point shots in the 133-119 defeat to the Bulls back on November 29.

Rozier made at least three shots from deep in each of his four February games and he attempted 9.8 threes per game over that span.

There are a handful of Charlotte players you can take on three-point props, but Rozier's makes and shot volume make me most comfortable in him.

Pascal Siakam Over 9.5 Rebounds

Pascal Siakam feels like the safe play tonight.

Siakam has 10 or more rebounds in three of his last four games and the Oklahoma City Thunder give up the most rebounds per game in the NBA.

OKC ranks dead last in field-goal percentage and that should give Siakam plenty of chances to haul in boards before the game potentially gets out of hand.
