Sometimes the player props that you think are too obvious are the ones you have to pick .
Tyrese Maxey experienced a significant uptick in production since James Harden arrived in Philadelphia and his points props have not adjusted yet.
As for Harden, he could be in for a terrific night inside the Wells Fargo Center as well because of the matchup with the Chicago Bulls.
The Bulls give up the sixth-most three-point shots in the NBA and they let up over 110 points in each of their last four games.
That should allow Maxey and Harden to feast on the Bulls defense with their respective strengths.
NBA 3-Point Play
Overall Record: 55-61
Tyrese Maxey Over 17.5 Points
Tyrese Maxey scored over 20 points in the four games in which James Harden played alongside him in the Sixers lineup.
Maxey attempted 12 or more field goals in each of those contests, and he has been more willing to shoot three-pointers in that stretch.
Maxey shot six three-pointers in each of the last three games and he could benefit from Chicago's awful defense against three-point shooters.
Chicago's numbers against three-pointers lead me to the next prop.
James Harden Over 2.5 Threes
James Harden can take advantage of Chicago's awful three-point defense while moving up on the NBA's All-Time 3-point list.
Harden needs two three-pointers to pass Miller on the list.
He made at least two three-point shots in each of his four games with Philadelphia and he could be inclined to shoot more tonight with his matchup against the Bulls.
Harden hit five triples against Minnesota and three in his first game against the Knicks. He attempted 24 three-point shots in the four games, so the usage is there for him to nail a few shots from downtown.
De'Aaron Fox Over 5.5 Assists
De'Aaron Fox's assist prop has been one of my favorite plays lately.
Fox has six or more assists in four of his last five games.
The Sacramento point guard has been a distributor even while he is shooting at a high volume.
The Kings get the Knicks on the second leg of a back-to-back and that may help the Kings offense later into the second half.
