The Los Angeles Clippers are still in search of their first win with James Harden, which makes it hard to bet on them against the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night.
So, I’m turning to the prop market to find two plays to consider for the Clippers – and one for Denver if you’re interested – in this NBA In-Season Tournament clash.
Paul George and Norman Powell are both coming off of big games on offense, and they could be in line for more on Tuesday night.

Clippers vs. Nuggets best NBA prop bets today
- Paul George OVER 21.5 points
- Norman Powell OVER 11.5 points
- Michael Porter Jr. OVER 7.5 rebounds
Paul George OVER 21.5 points
I love this line for Clippers star Paul George, especially since he’s averaging 23.6 points per game this season.
There have been some down showings for George, but he put up 26 points in the team’s last game against Memphis – even though the Clippers scored 101 total points.
PG has been great at getting to the line this season (6.0 free throw attempts per game), and he’s shooting a solid 46.9 percent from the field and 39.4 percent from 3. Even with James Harden in town, George is still getting 14.8 shots per game over his last four contests.
I think he clears this line in Denver.
Norman Powell OVER 11.5 points
A Sixth Man of the Year candidate, Norman Powell is averaging 12.7 points per game this season while shooting a red-hot 52.6 percent from the field and 43.9 percent from beyond the arc.
Powell simply needs more shots, and he’s still cleared 11.5 points in six games this season. The Clippers guard bounced back from a scoreless showing against Dallas to hang 20 on the Grizzlies on Sunday.
He should clear this line on Tuesday night.
Michael Porter Jr. OVER 7.5 rebounds
Michael Porter Jr. has shown renewed energy on the glass this season, averaging 8.2 boards per game and clearing this prop total in four of his last five games.
With the Clippers ranking in the middle of the pack in rebounding percentage this season (15th), I wouldn’t be shocked to see MPJ grab eight or more boards tonight.
