There’s a light NBA schedule on Tuesday. But there are some marquee matchups to choose from while selecting our best NBA prop picks, including the Golden State Warriors facing the Phoenix Suns.

It’s a TNT doubleheader night in the NBA on Tuesday, with the network showing the New York Knicks squaring off against the Brooklyn Nets, and then an epic Warriors-Suns matchup. Let’s break down three props from around the league.

Here are my top NBA prop picks for Tuesday’s five-game NBA schedule (Odds via DraftKings, and pick confidence is based on a one-to-five star scale).

Top NBA Prop Picks

Alec Burks Over 23.5 points, rebounds, and assists (-110) ★★★
Chris Paul Over 8.5 assists (-110) ★★★
Tyus Jones Over 6.5 assists (+115) ★★★

Top NBA Prop Predictions

Burks Over 23.5 points, rebounds, and assists

The Kemba Walker trade hasn't worked out for the Knicks, as the four-time All-Star looks like a shell of his former self while falling out of head coach Tom Thibodeau’s rotation. Walker is averaging career lows across the board, including points (11.1), rebounds (2.6), assists (3.1), field-goal attempts per game (9.8), and minutes (24.5).

Alec Burks started over Walker during an upset win over Atlanta on Saturday, finishing with 23 points, seven rebounds, and three assists. Burks will remain the starter going forward, and he could easily top this total using points alone – especially if RJ Barrett doesn’t play, and he’s questionable.

"I want to tighten the rotation. I liked the way the team functioned, so it will be similar to what we did in the Atlanta game," Thibodeau said recently.

Paul Over 8.5 assists (-110)

Paul is looking to be a part of the third 17-game winning streak of his career tonight.

He likely won't be much of a scorer against Golden State. Paul has been given an Over/Under of 15.5 points, presumably because he'll spend plenty of time and energy chasing around Steph Curry. Instead, I expect him to be more of a facilitator.

The future Hall of Famer leads the NBA in assists per game at 10.1, his best per-game average since the 2014-15 season (10.2). He's also the only NBA player in double digits. In clutch time this year – which is when the score is within five points over the last five minutes or overtime – Paul has produced a stellar five-to-one assist-to-turnover ratio. He's also averaging 11.7 assists per game at home this season.

Jones Over 6.5 assists (+115)

It's shocking that Over 6.5 assists is the underdog play here, as Jones is now running Memphis' offense with star point guard Ja Morant out for a few weeks due to a knee injury.

Jones isn't close to matching Morant's talent, but he might be a better passing point guard. He's only the third player to lead the league in assist-to-turnover ratio during three straight campaigns (Muggsy Bogues and Paul are the others). Jones is currently No. 1 again with a six-to-one ratio.

The former Duke star received his first start for the injured Morant on Sunday against Sacramento, finishing with eight helpers over just 24 minutes. He’ll get much more action in this one because that Kings game was a blowout.

Jones also registered five assists over only 14 minutes last week against Toronto in a home loss when Morant was healthy.
