Capper Penguin's NBA Tuesday Player Prop Pick - 1/17
Philadelphia 76ers @ Los Angeles Clippers
James Harden absolutely cooked the Clippers last game WITH Paul George and Kawhi Leonard for 20 points, 21 assists, and 11 rebounds. The main reason for the 21 assists is because Joel Embiid went for 44 against Zu which he's projected to do tonight. There's a chance he doesn't do it again as LAC might change their scheme, but if that's the case, Harden will be forced to score more.
He's hit this line in five straight now and his last 5 of 6 games away. Even if Paul George doesn't play Harden cooked the Clippers again the game before for 51 PRA.
Another interesting stat I noticed was the fact that James Harden and Joel Embiid both played an abnormally high amount of minutes and I believe it's because this game means more to Doc Rivers than people realize. He coached the Clippers for 7 years and beating them has to give him satisfaction.
Doc will be all systems go with his best players to stick to the Clippers organization again in Los Angeles.

JAMES HARDEN OVER 38.5 PRA @ -110
