The NBA returns on Friday night with 11 games on the schedule. Scorers will be the focus of this evening.
Kristaps Porzingis will look to maintain his solid comeback season when he takes on the Charlotte Hornets. OG Anunoby and the Toronto Raptors will be looking for a road victory over the Brooklyn Nets. And DeMar DeRozan will look to continue his hot shooting form when his Chicago Bulls take on the Golden State Warriors.
Let's check out the bets!
Kristaps Porzingis has bounced back from an injury-plagued season and has looked good for the Wizards this year. At DraftKings, Porzingis is a -105 to clear 23.5 points when he takes on the Charlotte Hornets.
On the season, Porzingis is averaging 21.6 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 2.5 assists on 47.5% from the field and 38.2% from three-point range. He's been particularly good over his last three games as well, averaging 29.7 points, 9.0 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks on 62.8% from the field and 57.1% from three.
The Hornets are lacking defensive quality on almost every area of the court, save for effort. Porzingis should thrive in this matchup.

With Pascal Siakam out of the lineup, OG Anunoby really showed off his star potential. At Caesars Sportsbook, Anunoby is a -113 to clear 18.5 points when he faces the Brooklyn Nets.
On the season, Anunoby is averaging 18.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 2.2 assists on 47.1% from the field and 35.0% from the three-point range. But in his five games as the Raptors' main offensive option, he posted 24.0 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 3.2 assists on 50.0% from the field and 31.8% from three.
After posting a modest 12 points on 45.5% shooting in his last game, expect Anunoby to bounce back.
DeMar DeRozan continues to prove that he's one of the NBA's deadliest scorers. At PointsBet, DeRozan is a -110 to clear 26.5 points when he faces the Golden State Warriors.
On the season, DeRozan is averaging 26.3 points, 4.6 assists, and 4.3 rebounds on 52.0% shooting from the field and 31.3% from three-point range. Over his last five games, DeRozan averaged 29.8 points, 5.6 assists, and 5.4 rebounds on 50.9% from the field and 55.6% from three.
The Warriors' defense hasn't been up to standard this season, so DeRozan should feast. With the threat of his playmaking and finishing, DeRozan's mid-range game should be in full effect.
