Our Pick
The Boston Celtics will be shorthanded for the remainder of the season, as first-time All-Star Jaylen Brown has been ruled out for the remainder of the season. The Miami Heat on the other hand, have been performing like a well-oiled machine. The overall talent and balance of the Heat should overcome the Celtics.

Our Pick
If you were just looking at the standings, you’d probably see an easy pick in the New York Knicks. But a recent victory over one of the best teams in the league, the Phoenix Suns, and a massive performance by Anthony Davis is an encouraging trend for the desperate Lakers.

Our Pick
Marcus Morris is having a great season, averaging 13.5 points per game on 46.8% shooting from the field and 47% shooting from three. In his sole game this season against the Toronto Raptors, Morris was the beneficiary of Toronto’s focused defence on Paul George and Kawhi Leonard – scoring 22 points on eight of 11 shooting.

Denver Nuggets vs Charlotte Hornets

Both of these teams are near-locked into playoff position, but both Denver and Charlotte are still trying to refine themselves before the post-season begins.

Bet of the Evening – Player PTS+REB+AST

Player Odds
N. Jokic Over 45.5 -115

N. Jokic Under 45.5 -115

Our Pick
No real way to lose here, but based on Jokic’s performance he’s expected to easily clear 45.5. Over his last five games he’s cleared 45.5 by an average of 1.5. While his previous performance against the Charlotte Hornets left many wanting in the scoring department, his average of 29.4 points over his last five games makes picking the Over a bit more comfortable.

Minnesota Timberwolves vs Detroit Pistons

Both the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Detroit Pistons are out of the playoff race, but their star players are still ready to work hard until the season is up.

Bet of the Evening – Player Three-Pointers

Player Odds
K. Anthony-Towns Over 2.5 +130

K. Anthony Towns Under 2.5 -170

Our Pick
How can Towns convert against one of the top teams at limiting three-point attempts in the NBA? By facing that team when eight players on their roster are on the Injury List. Yes, the Pistons have limited teams to 33.2% from three since May began, but Towns is averaging 2.8 threes per game on seven attempts since the beginning of the month.
