Steph Curry will set the record tonight for the most 3-pointers made in a career in NBA history. This is a record that he has a chance to set himself extremely far apart from Ray Allen by the time he is done. It will likely one day be broken, but tonight will be his night. It can be our night too if we hit a Same Game Parlay.

Let’s start with Steph. He’s probably going to break the record in the first quarter of the game. Curry has played very well in Madison Square Garden over the course of his career. He’s shooting 51% from three in his career at the Knicks home arena. The 33-year-old guard is shooting about 13 attempts a game from deep. So, if he were to hit half of these, he’d be hitting either six or seven threes in the game. This seems like a lock and isn’t in an ideal situation for threes, but I’ll take Curry to score over 5 threes in the game at -235.

I like Nerlens Noel. He’s been a nice change for the Knicks and a good rim protector. His rebounding, and minutes, haven’t been super consistent yet, but one area of opportunity against the Warriors is for the center’s rebounding. Kevon Looney is a solid player, he’s made strides and an impact defensively, but he isn’t much on offense so Noel should be able to crash the boards. I’ll add him to get over 6.5 boards on the night.

I’m adding Alec Burks under 2.5 three-pointers to the parlay. The Warriors are great at a lot of things, but again, they struggle to guard the three-point line against shooting guards. Even with the opportunity that the Warriors provide, Burks is coming back from a game off, and Derrick Rose has been playing very well lately. I think Burks will get maybe five attempts, I don’t see him hitting three of them. I’ll play the under.

Jordan Poole is my last player in this parlay. Poole has been a great addition to the roster. While this will be Steph Curry’s game, Poole and Andrew Wiggins are great for the team and carry the offense while Curry gets his rest. I’m going to play Poole to get over 17.5 points and I think he gets to that number by hitting at least 3 three-pointers.

Parlay:

  • Steph Curry 5+ threes (-235)
  • Nerlens Noel over 6.5 rebounds (-108)
  • Alec Burks under 2.5 threes (-102)
  • Jordan Poole over 17.5 points (-110)
  • Jordan Poole 3+ threes made (-130)

Total Parlay: +1230, a $10 bet pays $123.05. I like Derrick Rose to hit the first bucket tonight too. Add that in to make a splash at +12336 where a $10 bet pays $1,233.60.
