The Say

The Thunder haven’t had the best week with the Warriors taking them down twice and their last quarter decisions being questioned. The Clippers are coming for their spot so wins are a must.

D’Angelo Russell will need some more ice for the veins as well as setting up the rest of the roster with some intravenous to even get close to the Warriors tonight.

The Say

Dallas were able to get the win in a close contest a week ago. In Denver, that feat is usually harder to repeat. Too close to call.

Tied  +5.5 206.5 202.5

The Say

The Trail Blazers head to Motor City, in what may well be the match-up of the night. Both teams are playing some good ball at the moment, and the matchup between Reggie Jackson and Lillard is one worth tuning into. Detroit lost away last night in New York, and losing 1-5% in the legs in a back to back doesn’t bode well against the Blazer’s speedy backcourt. If Drummond can hold down the boards, it should be close. The Pistons will need to slow things down, if they can’t it’s the Blazers.

Best Bet: Portland +5.5

Feeling Lucky: Either team by less than 7 @2.82

The Say

The load in Miami is being shared well with 7 players scoring in double digits away against the 76ers two days ago. This time around the 76ers are headed to South Beach, and we would expect a cruisy win for the Heat. With Bosh out, Whiteside has continued his dominance, averaging 13.2ppg/117.rpg and 3.9bpg, while Wade has brought back the Flash of old. Miami here.Best Bet: Under 219.5 @1.62

The Say

The Rockets are sliding further beyond the .500 mark and a playoff spot. Dwight Howard is a shell of his former Orlando self, and James Harden is being called on to do far too much. This is fine by him, as he would shoot 45 shots a game if he could, but it’s horrible for the Rockets. Facing a healthy and dominant Raptors who are sitting pretty 2nd in the East, in the land of Drake, will be too much for Houston.

Best Bet: Toronto WIN @1.36

Feeling Lucky: HT/FT Toronto/Toronto @1.68
