The NBA season is in full steam as we enter February. With the All-Star reserves recently announced, I'm betting on one of those players to have a strong performance on Saturday.
I'm also backing Kyle Kuzma and Mikal Bridges to have extremely productive nights for their respective teams. Without further ado, here are my best free NBA player prop picks for February 4.

Take a Holiday
Milwaukee Bucks point guard Jrue Holiday was just named an All-Star for the second time in his career and is averaging 19.2 points per game to go along with 7.2 assists a night.
With Giannis Antetokounmpo filling up the hoop even more than usual lately, Holiday has been racking up his fair share of dimes. He's fresh off an eight-assist performance against the Clippers and is averaging 7.7 apg in his last 11 games.
The Bucks are set to host Miami, and while the Heat allow the second-fewest points per game in the league, they also rank a modest 14th in opponent assists per game (25.2).
In two games on the road against Miami last month, Holiday finished with double-digits in assists. Take the Over 6.5 on his total tonight.
Jrue Holiday prop: Over 6.5 assists (-104)
The Phoenix Suns are once again rolling with point guard Chris Paul back in the lineup and have gone 7-2 straight up and against the spread in their last nine games. Mikal Bridges has seen his offensive role grow with Devin Booker sidelined and has averaged 23.2 points per game on 47.9% shooting over the previous 11 contests.
Bridges has scored more than 20 points in each of his last four games — including last night when he dropped 25 points on the Celtics. He'll have an even easier matchup today with the Suns facing off against the Pistons.
Detroit is second-last in the league with 119.9 ppg allowed and they have been awful at defending opposing shooting guards, which is the position Bridges has shifted to following the injury to Booker. The Pistons are surrendering 24.9 ppg to opposing shooting guards while allowing them to shoot a sizzling 47.5% from the floor.
Mikal Bridges prop: Over 19.5 points (-117)
The Nets are hosting the Washington Wizards as 3-point faves today but things are looking bad in Brooklyn with Kyrie Irving reportedly demanding a trade.
One major issue that has plagued the Nets is their lackluster work on the glass, with the Nets ranking second-last in the league in rebound rate (47.4%). That number has dropped to just 45.5% since their second-best rebounder Kevin Durant hit the IL on January 8, and their third-best rebounder Ben Simmons is now expected to miss his fourth consecutive game tonight.
That should mean plenty of rebounding opportunities for Wizards forward Kyle Kuzma, who is averaging 8.0 boards per game since the start of the new year.
The O/U on Kuzma's rebounds total today is set at 7.5 and paying out at plus money for the Over. He has snagged at least nine rebounds in six of his last eight games and is coming off an 11-rebound performance against Portland last night.
Kyle Kuzma prop: Over 7.5 rebounds (+115)
