Nine games on the schedule tonight, with several interesting contests, including a decent game between Golden State and Milwaukee.
Cleveland at Indiana: The Cavs are favored by 2.5 and the total has dropped to 221, as Isaiah Thomas will be resting, which won’t hurt the Cavs much, as LeBron and Wade lead the team in assists anyway. Cleveland was taken to task for its lack of defense last game against the Raptors, but will it help?
Utah at Charlotte: The Hornets are favored by 4 and the total is 205.5, while I have it 102-94 for the Hornets. The Jazz are 6-10 after a victory this season.
Orlando at Washington: The Wizards are favored by 10 over the free-falling Magic and the total is 218, while I made this one 117-102 for Washington. The Magic have gone under in their last four road games, while the Wizards are 6-1 their last seven at home.
Brooklyn at Atlanta: The Hawks are favored by 3 and the total is 211, while I have it 112-108 for the Hawks. The Hawks are 3-7 after a win, while the Nets are 10-14-1 after a loss.
New York at Minnesota: The Timberwolves are favored by 8.5 and the total is 209, while I have Minnesota winning 107-98. Minnesota is 1-7 in their last eight games.
Portland at New Orleans: The Pelicans are favored by 3 and the total has climbed to 219.5, which is tied for the second-highest total Portland has played to this season. I have this one 110-108 for New Orleans, but the Pelicans are 9-1 in their last 10 home games and Portland has scored at least 110 in their last six games, while going 4-2 in that span and losing at Cleveland and at Houston. Lillard should return for Portland for this one and gives the Blazers another option, so will have to ride the Portland over train in this spot.
Golden State at Milwaukee: The Warriors are favored by 6.5 and the total is at 223.5 after some mid-afternoon money came in and knocked the game down 1.5 points, while I have the Warriors winning 113-105.
Memphis at Denver: The Nuggets are favored by 7 and the total is 205, while I have the Nuggets winning 107-100. The Grizzlies have gone over in their last four road games.
Houston at Phoenix: The Rockets are favored by 7.5 and the total is 228.5, while I have the Rockets winning 122-107. Houston has gone 14-4 in its last 18 games
