Prop Pick

The Denver Nuggets are 2-0 up in the Western Conference Finals, meaning that the LA Lakers really need to step up ASAP. Some of their players were alright in the first two games, but some really need to pull themselves together. One of the players that belongs to the latter category is Dennis Schroder.

The 29-year-old German was pretty decent in the regular season with a PPG of 12.6. However, his form dipped over the last couple of weeks. In the first two games of the Western Conference Finals, he scored a total of only 10 points. The worst thing is that he spent roughly 30 minutes on the court in each of those games.

He’ll have to do way, way better than that tonight. He’s got the motivation and we believe that he also has the skills needed to record a double-digit number this evening.
