And just like that, there’s only two weeks left of the NBA regular season.
The way they cram the games in though, that equates to around eight matches per team!
With Playoff and Play-In implications across the board, almost every game matters, and we’ve put together a Bank Holiday Acca, paying out at 12.17/1 with Ladbrokes.
New York Knicks (@ Memphis Grizzlies) – 13/10
Only the red-hot Suns have defeated New York in their last 12 games, as the Knicks have risen up the Eastern Conference quicker than King Kong up the Empire State Building.
Next up it’s a trip to the Grizzlies, and it should be more of the same against a Memphis side who have lost three out of their last five games, including a shock defeat to Orlando last time out.
Philadelphia 76ers -8 (@ Chicago Bulls) – 10/11
Philly are heating up at the right time as they battle the Nets for top spot in the East, winning four straight, but it’s a different story in Chicago as the Bulls have lost three on the bounce.
This should be routine for the 76ers, so we’re laying the points here.
Utah Jazz (v San Antonio Spurs) – 1/3
Utah are back on track after two wins in three games, including a narrow victory over Toronto last night in Salt Lake City, and they are now 27-4 at home this season.
And we can’t see the slumping Spurs, in the midst of a three-game losing streak, bucking that trend.
Golden State Warriors (@ New Orleans Pelicans) – 5/4
Steph Curry continued his one-man mission to drag Golden State into the playoffs, dropping 30 points on Houston in a Warriors victory last night, and they will head to New Orleans full of confidence, with eight wins in their last 12 games.
The Pelicans are a talented team, but their defence ranks 27th in the NBA and they are 4-6 in their last 10, so we’re siding with Golden State in the Big Easy.
