The Say

The Cavs get their revenge on the Avery Bradley game winner. It’s funny with all the negative press about Cleveland, they have been in pole position in the East for about the whole season.

Best Bet: Cleveland WIN @1.29

The Say

The Knicks pulled out some rare form and pushed the Celtics right to the end last night. At home to the Pistons will be tough on the 2nd leg of a back to back. Both teams you wouldn’t say are playing better than the other but the Pistons would like the win to keep their playoff hopes alive.

Best Bet: Detroit WIN @1.42

The Say

This game is almost worth 2 wins with Indiana only 1.5 games ahead of Washington. Both teams are coming off loses but with the Wizards returning home, they have the edge.

The Say

The Jazz have lost 5 in a row and have really been playing Russian Roulette with their playoff chances. They need a win tonight to reduce the gap from Houston. New Orleans have Gordon back but are still losing. AD games usually ends up with a massive line or getting injured in the warm up. Hard to pick here but when in doubt, go the team with the best player.

Best Bet: Utah +10

Feeling Lucky: New Orleans WIN @1.79

The Say

Brooklyn are coming off a big win in OT against Denver and have to back it up against the Wolves tonight. The Nets’ team of misfits is no match for the youth and talent of Minnesota but with consistency an issue, this is another hard game to pick a winner. Are the Wolves trying to tank?

Best Bet: Minnesota WIN @1.46

The Say

Our two don’t touch teams face off where a Best Bet is likely off limits. However, with all the Bulls injuries, take a flyer on Houston here.

Best Bet: Under 219.5 @1.62

The Say

San Antonio are rolling again with their team back from injury and should have no trouble against the Kings. The only thing stopping them is the planned rest Pop pulls out for the older brigade.

The Say

The Hawks had the LA Lakers training drill last night but have to bring it a bit more tonight against the better LA sibling. The Clippers at home should get the job done but Atlanta have the lineups to cause LA some issues with Blake still out.

Best Bet: Atlanta +12

Feeling Lucky: Over 200.5 @1.75
