Jamal Murray under points and over assists on Tuesday? Check.

Gordon Hayward under 1.5 threes on Wednesday? Check check.

Fading Carmelo Anthony and Trevor Ariza against Indiana on Thursday? Even more checks.

We have lots of momentum with player props, so let's keep it rolling on Friday.

Pascal Siakam over 34.5 points + rebounds + assists

I don't play a ton of over props against Charlotte's defense, which has been good but not great in just about every positional matchup this season. However, power forward is the one position that's feasted against the Hornets, and Siakam is one of the best PFs in the league. He should have his way against a unit that's allowed the fourth-most points and rebounds and the fifth-most assists to the position this season.

Lonzo Ball over 2.5 made threes

We faded Ball a few nights ago against the Lakers, but he has a better matchup on his hands Friday. The Cavaliers are in the middle of the pack in terms of allowing points to shooting guards. However, Cleveland has struggled to defend the perimeter, giving up 3.51 made threes per game to shooting guards, the fourth-highest number in the league. Ball struggled last time out against the Cavaliers - converting just one of his seven attempts from deep - but I think he's due for a better performance this time.

Jarrett Allen over 17.5 points + rebounds

Allen rarely blows up the stat sheet, but the Nets big man should be able to get over this short number on Friday. He'll face a Hawks defense that's allowed the second-most points and the eighth-most rebounds to opposing centers this season.

Bradley Beal under 4.5 assists

Beal netted five assists in his last outing, his first with five or more since Feb. 11. If you scored a billion points in the month of February and were playing on a team that was 15 games under .500, would you pass the ball? Plus, this isn't an ideal spot for Beal to break out in the assists column, as the Jazz have allowed the fewest per game to shooting guards.

Ricky Rubio over 8.5 assists

I can't pass up this number. Rubio's posted at least nine assists in each of his last five games and will face a Pistons defense that's allowed 8.66 assists per game to point guards, the fourth-highest number of any team. This bet is pretty automatic.

Evan Fournier over 21.5 points + rebounds

The Magic's offense is rolling and all the talk's been centered around Aaron Gordon, who's posted at least 25 points in four of his last five games. You know who's been flying under the radar? Fournier, who's scored 20-plus in four of his last five. The veteran wing is also getting an elite matchup against the Timberwolves on Friday, as he'll try to keep the momentum rolling. Not only could Fournier get over the total with his points alone, but Minnesota also allows the most rebounds per game to shooting guards and the second-most rebounds to small forwards.
