7:30pm - Portland -6.5 at Brooklyn O/U 193.5
The Blazers beat the Wizards on Saturday to snap a 2 game losing skid and record just their 2nd win in 7 tries. The Nets are back home after a 1-2 Western swing. With Aldridge back in the lineup, I expect the Blazers to return to their winning ways.
Portland 103 Brooklyn 95
7:30pm - Sacramento -4.5 at New York O/U 200
The Kings enter tonight contest losers of 6 straight. The Knicks had their 3 game winning streak snapped with a 76-71 loss at Charlotte on Saturday without Anthony. Anthony should play tonight after Saturday's rest and I give New York a good chance to beat the struggling Kings.
New York 104 Sacramento 100
8pm - Orlando at Memphis -12 O/U 204.5
The Magic lost to the Pacers last night for their 5th straight loss. The Grizzlies have won 2 straight and 6 of 7. A lot of points, but I'll have to take Memphis, who is playing well against a struggling Orlando squad on the 2nd of a back to back.
Memphis 105 Orlando 90
8pm - Philadelphia at New Orleans -15 O/U 187
The Sixers have lost 5 in a row. The Pelicans beat the Mavs last night for their 3rd straight win. Philly beat the Pels 96-81 just 10 days ago at home (no Davis for NO). Late word that Carter-Williams will be out for the Sixers has me switching to New Orleans and giving the big number.
New Orleans 103 Philadelphia 85
8pm - Minnesota at Oklahoma City -15.5 O/U 206
The Timberwolves have lost 4 in a row. The Thunder return home briefly after a 3-2 road trip where they lost their last 2 games. I just have a hard time giving this amount of points, especially in this spot off the roadie.
Oklahoma City 107 Minnesota 97
9pm - Boston at Utah -7.5 O/U 193.5
The Celtics play game 5 of their 6 game Western trip and they have split their first 4. The Jazz have won 2 in a row and 3 of 5. I think Utah probably wins, but Boston has shown they are a gritty team that plays hard for 48 minutes. I'll take the points here.
Utah 97 Boston 94
10:30pm - Denver at L.A. Clippers -14 O/U 214.5
The Nuggets have lost 6 straight including last night's OT affair with the Wizards. The Clippers have won 4 straight, the last 2 by at least 20 points. I see another blowout win for L.A. tonight.
L.A. Clippers 121 Denver 99
