The Say

Charlotte have the wood over Indiana this season and should get it done again at home. Although, the Pacers have an incentive to win as another loss puts them close to falling out of playoff rankings.

 -7.5 -3.5 208.5  208.5 108-83

The Say

Most likely the match of the day. The Wizards are sitting dead on .500 and heading to the place where Lebron originally took his talents before heading to South Beach, and then packed up said talents and headed back again, all in the name of the Lebron brand (tempted to play it, so we are, cue video). Only a week ago the Cavs lost to the Wizards on the road, and we aren’t expecting a high scoring affair here. Cavs should get over the line, but we aren’t thinking double figures.

The Say

After dropping  4 in a row the Jazz boys from the bible belt have hit a rough patch that has put them under .500. Even after regaining Derrick Favors, things have slid to the point where now a playoff spot in the West is slipping from their grasp. With 6 wins out of the last 8, the Grizzlies are doing things a little better, and are tough to beat at home, with a 22-9 record. The brother Gasol is putting in work, and Vince keeps doing his thing, a little lower to the ground. Grizzlies in this one, and we need to say it…..keep getting’ them cheques Vince.

The Say

The T-Wolves are road-tripping, and just lost a close one to the Wizards. While Rubio and Towns continue to do work, the Minnesota bench are not lending a helping hand enough to get any kind of streak happening. Minnesota are a young side, and as such struggle to string together wins, especially on road trips. This one could be a bit of a toss up, previous form and a home advantage leans to the Bucks.

The Say

Strap yourselves in for this one, as the Nets head off to the Pepsi Center in Denver. The Nuggets will be without the oft-injured Gallinari, which should open up some time for Will Barton on the offensive end. Brooklyn score 97.0 ppg, just above the last placed 76ers. The Nuggets should get over the line in this one, but at least they will have more room on the bench without Joe Johnson and his cash filled briefcases. Keep gettin’ them cheques Joe.

-8.5  -5.5 206.0  206.0

The Say

Last time out D’Angelo Russell dropped 39, with 8-3’s, in a loss to Brooklyn. But yeah, we won’t be reading too much into that. The Atlanta offense is a thing of beauty, averaging 102.3 pg, just below the rampaging Toronto. Facing a beaten up Lakers outfit should be easy pickings for the Hawks. Kobe is up in the air with a shoulder, time for that Osteo-Eze again…

Best Bet: Atlanta WIN @1.22
