NBA Picks February 15

With just a few days separating teams from the NBA All-Star break, the league's Wednesday night schedule features 10 games!

In a matchup between struggling teams, the San Antonio Spurs take on the Charlotte Hornets. Battling to establish themselves in the East, the New York Knicks face the Atlanta Hawks. And in the Western Conference, it'll be a fast-paced affair between the Utah Jazz and Memphis Grizzlies.

Let's check out the bets!

San Antonio Spurs @ Charlotte Hornets

When: 7:00 PM EST

San Antonio Spurs+6.5 (-110)
O 241.0 (-110)
Charlotte Hornets-6.5 (-110)
U 241.0 (-110)

Spread: Charlotte Hornets -6.5 (-110) @ bet365

The San Antonio Spurs and Charlotte Hornets are two teams whose future lies in the NBA Draft Lottery. The Hornets are currently 14th in the East with a 16-43 overall record and an 8-18 home record. The Spurs are 14th in the West with a 14-44 overall record and a 5-23 road record.

The Charlotte Hornets are a team that love pushing the pace and pressuring the ball, as they average 92.2 field goal attempts per game (3rd in the NBA) while collecting 8.1 steals per game (7th in the NBA). The Hornets are coming off of an impressive win over the Hawks where they posted 144 points on 63.1% from the field and 54.1% from three.

The San Antonio Spurs will counter with their more methodical offense that averages 112.5 points per game (23rd in the NBA) and 27.0 assists per game (4th in the NBA). The Spurs enter this game off the back of a hard-fought performance, but ultimately a loss, where they scored 109 points on 50.6% from the field on 27 assists.

We're taking the Charlotte Hornets in this matchup. They may not defend the ball, but they're healthier and they're coming off of an impressive offensive performance. There's no reason they should falter, and if it comes down to a scoring battle the Hornets will come out the victor.

New York Knicks @ Atlanta Hawks

When: 7:30 PM EST

New York Knicks+2.5 (-105)
O 233.5 (-110)
Atlanta Hawks-2.5 (-115)
U 233.5 (-110)

Moneyline: New York Knicks (+125) @ DraftKings Sportsbook

The New York Knicks and Atlanta Hawks maintain their Eastern Conference rivalry when they face off on Wednesday night. The Knicks are currently seventh in the East with a 32-27 overall record and a 16-12 road record. The Atlanta Hawks are eighth in the East with a 29-29 overall record and a 15-11 home record.

The New York Knicks are a tough defensive team, allowing their opponents to shoot just 45.6% from the field (3rd in the NBA) and 34.9% from three-point range (6th in the NBA). 

New York were dominant in their last game, winning 124-106 over the Brooklyn Nets while shooting 54.9% from the field and 44.1% from three. 

The Atlanta Hawks will challenge them with their fast-paced offense, which averages 116.7 points per game (8th in the NBA). Unfortunately, the Hawks enter this game off the back of a disappointing 138-144 loss where they allowed 63.1% shooting from their opponents and 20 made threes.

The Knicks are the team to take in this matchup. New York plays stalwart defense and the Hawks' pace doesn't project to be able to break their opponents on the perimeter or in the paint. Atlanta may put up a strong fight with their scoring, but the Knicks' two-way efficiency should earn them the victory.

Utah Jazz @ Memphis Grizzlies

When: 8:00 PM EST

Utah Jazz+7.5 (-110)
O 239.5 (-110)
Memphis Grizzlies-7.5 (-110)
U 239.5 (-110)

Spread: Memphis Grizzlies -7.5 (-110) @ Caesars Sportsbook

While the Memphis Grizzlies remain among the top of the Western Conference, the Utah Jazz are simply trying to stay relevant in the playoff picture. The Memphis Grizzlies are second in the West with a 34-22 overall record and an impressive 23-5 home record. The Utah Jazz have fallen to 10th in the West with a 29-30 overall record and an 11-18 road record.

The Utah Jazz's offence will be their key weapon in this matchup, as they score 117.7 points per game (3rd in the NBA) while hitting 14.1 threes (5th in the NBA) on 36.3% efficiency (13th in the NBA). The Jazz enter this game off the back of a win over the Pacers, where they scored 123 points on 50.6% shooting while hitting 15 threes on 45.5% efficiency. The Memphis Grizzlies will try to slow Utah down with their defence, which allows 112.2 points per game (8th in the NBA) on just 44.9% from the field (1st in the NBA) while forcing 15.2 turnovers per game (6th in the NBA). Unfortunately the Grizzlies continue to struggle, losing their last game 119-109 as they were outrebounded 54 to 34 and 14 to 3 on the offensive glass.

Despite their recent struggles, we're taking the Memphis Grizzlies in this matchup. Utah lack a dedicated offensive interior presence and Memphis' group rebounding mentality should help them bounce back from their last disappointment. The Jazz can put up a fight with their scoring, but they tend to give up as much as they score.
