Brandon Ingram fantasy basketball, player prop recap vs. Pelicans

Fantasy basketball stats: 25 points, four rebounds, six assists — 43.5 FTPS
Player prop record: 1-6

Ingram surprisingly logged plenty of minutes in the fourth quarter after the Grizzlies made a fourth-quarter run to shrink the deficit to single digits. He scored 14 points in the fourth quarter and reached his over (4.5) on assists.

Third quarter update: The chances of Ingram hitting on any of his prop bets seem glum. The Pels lead the Grizzlies 98-77 through three quarters and Ingram has tallied 11 points, three rebounds, and two assists in 23 minutes. He has also made one 3-pointer. Ingram shouldn’t see too much of the court in the final frame.

Halftime update: Ingram managed to hit a 3-pointer, block two shots, and grab a rebound in the second quarter. He didn’t pick up much steam and tallied six points, three assists and a board at the break. He is 1-of-4 from the field and 3-of-4 from the free throw line. The Pels are up huge, 69-50, thanks to Jrue Holiday, Josh Hart and Nicolo Melli, so things aren’t looking great for Ingram’s prop bets.

First quarter update: Ingram ($8,800) picked up two fouls in his first seven minutes and tallied three points and three assists in the first quarter. He was forced to the pine early, but his team still led 31-30 after the first quarter.
