Jordan Poole O/U 2.5 Made 3’s vs. Suns

The Warriors bench is led by the favorite for Sixth Man of the Year, Jordan Poole.

In his career, he has balled out against the Suns. Over eight career meetings, Pool has made at least two three-pointers in seven of those games (87.5%) and made three-plus triples in four game (50%), per statmuse.

The “Poole Party” was in full swing last time out versus the Suns with 38 points and seven made three-pointers.

Poole attempted a career-high 7.4 three-pointers last season and made 2.8 for 36.4%, both career-highs.

This year, Poole has opened the year with a 2-for-9 showing versus the Lakers, 0-for-2 against the Nuggets and 3-for-5 versus the Kings. Poole had his best showing of the season with 24 points, seven made free-throws and three made triples in his previous game versus Sacramento.

Since the start of last season, when Poole plays at least 25 minutes on the road, he averages 2.9 made three-pointers on 8.0 attempts for a 36.5%.

That was a 38-game sample size and he went Over 2.5 made triples in 21 games ( 55.2%).

Keegan Murray and Malik Monk both went 4-for-10 three-pointers off the bench for the Kings versus the Warriors, while Kendrick Nunn hit 3-of-6 three-pointers off the bench against the Warriors.

For starters, LeBron James, Michael Porter Jr., Bruce Brown and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope all hit three or more triples against Golden State this season.

I played Poole Over 2.5 Made Three-Pointers at +120 odds on DraftKings and would play this to +100.

Pick: Jordan Poole Over 2.5 Made Three-Pointers (1u)

Chris Paul O/U 0.5 Made 3’s vs. Warriors

In a game with the highest Over/Under total on the board, everyone will be rushing to take a Over 0.5 three-point prop, but hold your horses.

This season, Chris Paul is 1-of-11 from three (9.1%) and went 1-of-8 (12.5%) in his previous game. After that effort, it’s hard to imagine CP3 would intend on continuing to shoot triples, especially when the Warriors allow the third-most assists per game thus far (28.0).

In CP3’s last three versus the Warriors, he’s gone 2-for-8 (25%) from three with two 0-for-2 efforts from deep.

Paul’s one made three-pointer broke a five-game regular-season stretch of zero made threes, dating back to last year. Paul was 0-for-9 (0%) and is 1-for-18 (5%) in the past 19 regular-season three-point attempts.

Dating back to February of 2021, regular-season games only, Paul attempted 61 three-pointers and made 12 (19.6%) over 19 games. He did not make a triple in eight of those 19 games (42.1%).

For +190 odds and against the Warriors team that allowed 12.0 three-pointers made per game (T-16th) and a 30.8% (5th) allowed three-point percentage against the Mavericks, Blazers and Clippers, I like these chances.

If Father Time is catching up to Paul, it may take a few weeks for the 37-year-old guard to get going. His points prop dropped from 13.5 to 12.5 and his assists went up from 8.5 to 9.5

Paul averages 7.7 points, 10.7 assists and 5.0 rebounds on 32.1% from the field and 9.1% from deep this season.

I played CP3 to go Under one made three-pointer for +190 on DraftKings. It’s around +170 everywhere else.

Pick: Chris Paul Under 0.5 Made Three-Pointers (1u)
