The Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards are both looking to improve their stock in the Eastern Conference. The Washington Wizards are currently 12th in the East with a 17-24 overall record. The Chicago Bulls are 19-22 in the East and sit at 10th in the Eastern Conference.

The Bulls enter this game having won six of their last 10 games. Most of their success has come against better competition, having defeated the Sixers, Nets, and Bucks in recent matches. The Wizards will try to sort out their defense when they face the Bulls, as they've allowed 127.3 points per game on 50.5% from the field and 36.9% from three in through their recent three-game losing streak.

Chicago look like the stronger team in this game, but that could be thrown into question depending on the availability of DeMar DeRozan. The Bulls' veteran guard left their Monday game with a quad strain and he'll be questionable for this match. If DeRozan is unavailable or not in full health, expect the Wizards to catch a break - even without Bradley Beal.

The New York Knicks and the Indiana Pacers face off after playing once already this season. The Indiana Pacers are surging at the moment, ranking sixth in the Eastern Conference with a 23-18 record. The New York Knicks aren't far behind them, owning a 22-19 record and sitting at seventh in the Eastern Conference.

The Indiana Pacers are in fine form, entering this game having won eight of their last 10 games. They've been able to remain efficient on the offensive end, shooting 48.2% from the field and 39.0% from three, despite losing the rebounding battle on average by 4.2 in their last 10 games. The Knicks are much more defense-biased in their approach. Over their last 10 games, where they've gone 4-6, the Knicks have allowed their opponents just 110.2 points per game on 45.7% shooting.

We're taking the Pacers in this matchup due to their form and matchup quality against the Knicks. While they lost their last meeting with New York, it was a narrow margin, and weren't as efficient from the field. It'll still be a tightly-contested affair, but form takes precedence in this meeting.

The Sacramento Kings and Houston Rockets are on opposite trends when they face off on Wednesday evening. The Kings are currently fifth in the West with a 21-18 record and a 12-9 record at home. The Rockets are dead last in the West and the NBA as a whole with a 10-30 record and a 4-16 record on the road.

The Houston Rockets are currently on a seven-game losing streak, as they've struggled to perform on both ends of the court. Houston are shooting just 42.4% from the field and 32.2% from three, while committing 14.9 turnovers to their 22.3 assists through their last seven. The Kings have performed similarly, but with more success. Sacramento have gone 5-5 over their last 10 games, scoring 121.6 points per game to their opponents' 120.9 while shooting 49.8% from the field and 38.0% from three-point range.

The talent gap is massive between these two teams, but it does project to be an up-and-down affair. The Kings are rightly the favorite in this match and the Rockets' poor defence combined with their poor efficiency puts the game easily in Sacramento's favor.
