2/2 – NBA Action


7pm - Philadelphia at Cleveland -16.5 O/U 193

The Sixers gave Atlanta all they could handle before finally losing 91-85 on Saturday.  Philly won their 2 prior games.  The Cavs have now won 10 in a row.  I'll take the feisty Sixers to cover this big number on the road.

Cleveland 106  Philadelphia 96

7pm - Charlotte at Washington -7.5  O/U 188.5

The Hornets have won 2 of 3 and 5 of 7.  The Wizards have dropped 2 straight and have lost 4 of 6 overall.  Wall is having migraines and is questionable, although he played pretty well in Saturday's OT loss to the Raptors.  I still think Charlotte is good enough to cover here, even if Wall plays.

Washington 95  Charlotte 89

7:30pm - L.A. Clippers -9 at Brooklyn  O/U 200

The Clippers have won 7 of 8 and are 2-1 so far on this current roadie.  The Nets lost in OT to the Raptors on Friday for their 4th straight loss.  Joe Johnson is questionable for the Nets, plus I can't overlook the 123-84 Clipper win over Brooklyn in L.A. on Jan 22.  Clips to win and cover.

L.A. Clippers 118  Brooklyn 100

 7:30pm - Milwaukee at Toronto -5.5  O/U 203.5

The Bucks have won 3 straight and 4 of 5.  The Raptors have won 6 in a row.  The last 2 in OT.  I think it will be close, but Toronto has found their winning way again and I'll back them to cover this reasonable number at home.

Toronto 106  Milwaukee 98

8pm - Atlanta -3.5 at New Orleans  O/U 194

Who can stop the Hawks?  Atlanta has now on 19 in a row after sidestepping a mild scare in a 91-85 win over the Sixers on Saturday.  The Pelicans have won 5 of 6 and should have Anthony Davis in the lineup although he has been battling a groin injury.  Even though the Hawks have failed to cover 3 of the last 4, this is a more reasonable spread and I'll back the Hawks.

Atlanta 103  New Orleans 97

8pm - Orlando at Oklahoma City -13.5  O/U 209.5

The Magic have lost 8 in a row.  The Thunder have lost 4 of 5.  Both teams dreadful lately ATS, Orlando 1-7 and OKC 0-5.  The Thunder won 127-99 in Orlando on Jan. 18.  Using that benchmark, I'll give the points here.

Oklahoma City 120  Orlando 95

8:30pm - Minnesota at Dallas -11.5  O/U 207

The Timberwolves have lost 2 straight and 7 of 8.  The Mavs have rebounded with 2 straight wins after a 4 game skid.  Still, not ready to give double digits.  Rondo's Out and Parsons is probable.

Dallas 107  Minnesota 99

9pm - Memphis -2.5 at Phoenix  O/U 202.5

The Grizzlies have won 6 in a row and 10 of 11 games.  The Suns lost at Golden State on Saturday and are 6-3 over their last 9.  I don't know how Memphis does it, but they do.  I guess they'll win another tonight.

Memphis 103  Phoenix 98
