NBA 3-Point Play: Quentin Grimes, Coby White, more on heavy Wednesday slate

Wednesday marks the last time for the next seven days in which more than five NBA games will be played.

With that in mind, I decided to supersize the NBA 3-Point Play with double the amount of player props to treat the occasion properly.

The main reason why I expanded from three to six picks is the abundance of favorable matchups on the board for the players that I chose.

Below are the picks for Wednesday night's slate

NBA 3-Point Play

Overall Record: 47-49

Isaiah Stewart Over 8.5 Rebounds

Isaiah Stewart has been a rebounding machine for the Detroit Pistons in February.

Stewart is averaging 11.4 rebounds per game this month and he has 12 or more boards in five games.

He is worth taking against the Boston Celtics because Robert Williams is listed as doubtful. Boston probably will not risk Williams' health with the All-Star break on the horizon.

Boston could also have some tired legs after last night's blowout in Philadelphia, which would lead to more rebounding opportunities as well.

Stewart had 17 rebounds against Boston on February 4 with Williams in the lineup, so he could easily come up with 10 or more boards.

Quentin Grimes Over 12.5 Points

The Brooklyn-New York game is fascinating from a handful of angles.

The Knicks do not have R.J. Barrett again due to injury, so Quentin Grimes should once again step into an increased role in the offense.

Grimes produced 20 and 19 points in the last two games on 28 combined field-goal attempts.

Brooklyn's defense is depleted without Kyrie Irving and Ben Simmons in the lineup, so New York's guards should have a decent shooting night.

Seth Curry Over 16.5 Points

Now to the other side of the Nets-Knicks matchup.

Seth Curry is the best shooter the Nets can put on the floor at Madison Square Garden.

Curry went 10-for-18 with 23 points in his Brooklyn debut on Monday. He struggled against the Knicks in two games this season with Philadelphia, but the offensive setup for Wednesday night is much different because Brooklyn is essentially trotting out its second-team lineup.

Curry should take a ton of shots, and he will at least have a chance to match his total from Monday night if he hits half of three-quarters of the attempts he sunk in his debut.

Coby White Over 3.5 Threes

Coby White is red hot from three-point range.

White went 15-for-22 from deep in the last three Chicago Bulls games.

White has an expanded role in the offense with Zach LaVine out and he is going up against a vulnerable Sacramento Kings defense on Wednesday.

Sacramento gives up the third-most points per game in the NBA and has the seventh-worst three-point defense.

White will take most of Chicago's three-point shots with DeMar DeRozan and Nikola Vucevic attempting a ton of shots inside the paint, so I'm willing to run with the hot streak.

Desmond Bane Over 2.5 Threes

I'm going back to Desmond Bane for the second straight night.

One of Bane's five three-pointer games came against the Portland Trail Blazers this season.

Portland gives up the second-highest three-point percentage to opponents and Bane should be Memphis' top shooter from beyond the arc.

Bane is averaging 6.5 three-point attempts per game in February and he hit three or more shots from deep in half of those games.

Jakob Poeltl Over 13.5 Points

The San Antonio Spurs should feed Jakob Poeltl as much as possible against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Oklahoma City struggled a ton against opposing big men in the last week. Julius Randle recorded a triple-double with 13 rebounds and Mitchell Robinson had a 14-17 double-double on Monday.

Nikola Vucevic put up 31 and 15 on the Thunder on Saturday and Joel Embiid had 25 and 19 against them on Friday.

Poeltl should feast in the matchup and he could be a candidate for a double-double bet as well.
