Best NBA Prop Plays for Wednesday (2/25)
Rockets Guard Russell Westbrook
Over 29.5 Points (-108 @ FanDuel)
Westbrook has scored 30 or more points in 13 of his last 16 games for the Houston Rockets, and in six February games, he's averaged 32.3 points per game. The question of whether he and James Harden can co-exist is in the past, as Harden leads the league in scoring (35.3), and Westbrook is eighth (27.2).
The Rockets have managed Westbrook's minutes and usage well this season, and that's part of the success this team has experienced. He's surpassed 30 or more points in seven of his last 10 home games, and tonight is looking like another as Houston welcomes the Memphis Grizzlies to town.
- Westbrook is averaging 30.2 points per game with three days of rest (5 games)
- Westbrook averages 29.4 points versus Western Conference teams (33 games)
- The Grizzlies allow 117.5 points per game in their last 10 road games (23rd)
- The Grizzlies rank 16th against point guards with 23.69 points per game allowed
Memphis was dismantled by the Los Angeles Clippers in their previous game and have now lost their last three. To add injury to insult, Brandon Clarke is out for an extended amount of time, and Jaren Jackson as well.
Houston should roll in this game, and Westbrook should be the engine to make this team go.
