Nothing sets the mood heading into the weekend quite like a busy Friday in the NBA. We're going to bump our volume for tonight's seven-game slate mainly because we deserve it.

Here are the top player props on the board.

Kendrick Nunn under 2.5 made threes and under

The Jazz couldn't contain Nunn in the most recent meeting. The Heat guard went off for 23 points on 8-of-15 shooting from the field and 4-of-9 from beyond the arc against a defense that's currently No. 2 in the NBA in efficiency and No. 3 in 3-point percentage.

I'm going to bet that he can't do it again. The Jazz also allow the worst shooting percentage and give up the fewest 3-point makes per game to point guards.

Mason Plumlee over 3.5 assists

The Pistons have an Eastern Conference-low nine wins, but don't let that distract you from the fact that Plumlee is playing at a ridiculously high level. He's recorded seven double-doubles - and one triple-double - across his last 14 games after failing to notch one over his first 16.

The Kings allow the fifth-most points, second-most rebounds, and most assists to centers. I'm playing the latter, with Sacramento on zero days' rest.

Gary Trent under 3.5 made threes

We coasted to a win a few days ago on Trent Jr. over 3.5 made threes against the Nuggets, citing his success on the second night of back-to-backs. I'm going the opposite direction Friday against the Lakers.

L.A. allows the second-worst field-goal percentage and seventh-fewest threes per game to shooting guards. Trent's been on a tear - he's poured in 15 or more in 11 of his last 12 - but this is a tougher draw than his recent competition.

Malcolm Brogdon over 20.5 points

This is a soft line on a player whose volume is increasing in a hurry. After being held under 20 points in six straight, Brogdon's topped that threshold in his last three, including a 32-point performance last Wednesday.

Brogdon is the Pacers' lone threat on the perimeter right now. He's played at least 33 minutes in each of his last seven starts, averaging 19.4 attempts from the floor over that stretch.

He should reap the rewards against a Celtics frontcourt allowing the fourth-best shot percentage to point guards.

Draymond Green over 23.5 points+rebounds+assists

Green hasn't given the Warriors much in the scoring department. His 5.5 points per game, 37.2% field-goal percentage, and 22.2% clip from beyond the arc are all on pace to be his worst since his rookie season. He's in the bottom 18 of usage rate and owns the 13th-worst offensive box plus-minus in the NBA.

While Green's been a liability filling the bucket, he's playing defense at a high level and is tied for sixth among all players in assists per game in 2020-21. The veteran point forward was just one rebound shy of a triple-double in his last outing and can do a little bit of everything to get this one home.

Expect a solid stat line from Green, who'll be eager to atone for his ejection versus these same Hornets last weekend.

Victor Oladipo over 2.5 made threes

Oladipo was ice-cold from deep against the Cavaliers a few days ago (1-of-8), but I'll buy low. The Raptors allow the fifth-most 3-pointers to shooting guards (3.81) and threes per game in general (13.9).

Houston attempts the third-most threes in the league (40.5), and it could be bombs away as a 7.5-point underdog Friday.
