Bright Side Of The Sun: Open Thread: Phoenix Suns (3-12) vs. Philadelphia 76ers (11-7)
Probable starters:Ariza is supposed to return tonight from his personal matter, which begs the question what head coach Igor Kokoskov will do. Isaiah Canaan staying in the starting lineup, or not? Personally, I don't think so, especially after Bridges ' strong play as of late.
Ayton vs. Embiid is going to be fun, but it might be a rude awakening for the Suns' No. 1 overall pick. I expect Embiid to have his way, and Phoenix will have to stop everyone else in order to win.

Mavs Moneyball: 3 things to watch for as the Mavericks clash with the Grizzlies
The Dallas Mavericks (7-8) are coming off a nail biting win against the Golden State Warriors Saturday night and are trying to claw their way back to .500 but are facing a stiff test against the Memphis Grizzlies (10-5).
Both of the Southwest division foes selected in the top five of the NBA lottery last season, and while the Mavericks are benefitting from prized rookie Luka Doncic, the Grizzlies have been rejuvenated with the good health of Mike Conley and Marc Gasol.
Both teams are playing well as of late, and both squads will be looking to notch a valuable division win.

New Orleans has looked like a different team last 5 games with Jrue and Anthony both feeling it and the Pelicans have an extra day of rest over the road weary Spurs. S.A. did beat GW last night but the warriors are a shell of themselves so I'm not looking much into that. I like New Orleans -7.5.

Fansided: Denver Nuggets at Bucks: Two things to watch for
The Denver Nuggets are going to be in for a tough match up after a 10 point defeat at the hands of the New Orleans Pelicans.
They will travel to Milwaukee as they try to find a way to slow down the Greek Freak and get back to their winning ways. As of right now, the Nuggets are ranked sixth in the Western Conference with a 10-6 win loss record.
With all of this in mind, what are the things to watch for in this Eastern Conference foe vs. Western Conference foe match up which could be the key to Denver turning the ship around?

The Phoenix Suns continue to stink and 4 out of 5 of their last games have been lost by 15 points or more and I think Philadelphia is more than capable to cover this 12 points spread.The Philadelphia 76ers are slowly starting to come together with Jimmy Butler getting more involved with the offense. I don't enjoy laying double-digit chalk in the NBA, but Philly is the only option here in this matchup with the current form of the Phoenix Suns. Betting Pick: Philadelphia -12

The Pacers are most likely without their leader in Oladipo who is currently listed as doubtful, with that being said, the Jazz are starting to heat up and they are coming off a big road win over the Celtics so I like their chances here...especially if Oladipo isn't in the lineup tonight. Betting Prediction: Utah -3
