Tip – The top two teams from the East face off for the 4th time this NBA season, with Milwaukee currently leading the series 2-1. Giannis and company has proven to be a mismatch issue for Toronto’s usual stellar defense. Toronto hasn’t taken to the court since Sunday’s win over Dallas. They are also is winless against the spread in their last five contests when playing on three or more days of rest.

LA Lakers at LA Clippers

Tip – The battle for LA takes place on Thursday. Both teams are just 4-6 over their last ten outings. Yet, the wins are likely to stack up for one of these two SoCal teams. Lakers are hopeful that LeBron James will return to their lineup vs. the Clippers. As if the Clippers 1-5 record at home ATS wasn’t bad enough, the Staples Center will likely be filled with fans reppin’ the purple and gold.

Tip – Golden State has now won 11 straight games, all by an average of 17.5 points. DeMarcus Cousins has fit in seamlessly in the Dubs lineup, and has shown an ability to run the floor unlike anything he’s shown previously in his career. Philly struggles against teams with winning records. The 6ers’ have gone just 5-12 ATS in their last 17 games vs. a team with a winning percentage over .600.

HOU Rockets at DEN Nuggets

Tip – James Harden pushed his ridiculous 30+ point streak to 24 straight games on Tuesday. Yet, Houston is just two games over .500 in their last ten contests, and 1-6 ATS in their last seven. We all know one of Harden’s best attributes is his ability to get to the line. Denver excels in terms of defensive free throw percentage, holding opponents to the third lowest percentage in all of the NBA. Denver is 7-3 overall in their last ten games and 4-2 ATS in their last six games.

Tip – With hopes that LeBron returns to the Lakers lineup on Thursday, it’s almost a given he will be on the court come tipoff on Saturday. Still, the Lakers have struggled in Bron’s absence, and shown their inability to be a cohesive unit, owning a losing ATS record in their last ten games. Bron will bring an obvious boost to the Lakers offense, yet LA’s 21st ranked defense will have very little success stopping the Warriors’ top ranked offense. Golden State is currently riding a double-digit win streak.

OKC Thunder at BOS Celtics

Tip – Intriguing storylines surround both of these basketball teams. Rumors swirl of a possible Kyrie reunion with LeBron in LA, while Paul George and his 36.5 ppg in his last two contests has spearheaded a possible MVP run. OKC has been a fan-favorite amongst sports betting sites, going 5-1 ATS in their last six games and hitting the OVER in four of those games. OKC has dominated on both ends of the court, ranking in the top 11 of the NBA in both offensive and defensive ppg. Kyrie Irving has also missed two of the last three games for Boston with a hip strain, and there is no guarantee he takes the court come Sunday.
