7pm - Houston at Indiana -1 O/U 202
The Rockets lost to Phoenix on Saturday after winning 3 in a row. The Pacers are battling for a playoff spot but their current 5 game slide isn't helping. It's possible Paul George plays tonight to give the team a much needed lift. I don't think he will, though, and I'll go with Harden and company to return to the win column. *Paul George - OUT*
Houston 101 Indiana 98
7:30pm - Boston at Brooklyn -5 O/U 203
The Celtics have dropped 3 in a row in their quest for a playoff spot. The Nets have won 2 straight and 4 of 5 in going for that same post-season berth. Brooklyn is not a good home team, but without Isaiah Thomas' spark (back injury) I find it hard to back the C's.
Brooklyn 98 Boston 89
7:30pm - Memphis -13 at New York O/U 183.5
The Grizzlies have won 2 in a row and 4 of 5 as they pursue the West's #2 playoff seed. The Knicks pursue the league's worst record and will likely do so tonight without G Alexey Shved (back contusion) which increases their chances of losing big.
Memphis 103 New York 85
8pm - Charlotte at Chicago -7 O/U 191.5
The Hornets beat the Timberwolves yesterday to move to 1-3 on their current roadie. The Bulls lost a Detroit on Saturday to halt a 2 game winning streak. Butler is expected to return for Chicago tonight and that should be enough for a win, but probably not a cover against the playoff hungry Hornets.
Chicago 97 Charlotte 92
9pm - Minnesota at Utah -10.5 O/U 185.5
The Timberwolves have lost 7 of 8 and are battling with a plethora of injuries and will likely dress just 8 players. The Jazz have dropped 2 of 3 and may be without Hayward due to a shoulder injury. Utah has enough even without him to win easily at home here.
Utah 103 Minnesota 85
10:30pm - Washington at Golden State -11 O/U 204
The Wizards will try to even up their record on this roadie as they are 1-2 coming in. The Warriors will still be without Klay Thompson, but that hasn't slowed them down as they have won 5 straight. I like Washington to battle hard after getting blown out by Sacramento yesterday.
Golden State 106 Washington 98
