In their last meeting, the Mavs shot 50% and made 12 of their 35 three-point attempts and came up one point short on the road against the underdog Spurs down the road.
Donkic had 38 in that one and has been lights out as we approach the stretch. I like Dallas to even the season series at home. Denver is just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. Over is 11-5 in DAL last 16 overall.
The makeup of the OKC matches up well against this Utah team. Utah are 1-1 against OKC this season winning their season opener in Utah 100-95 but couldnâ€™t overcome them in their second meeting going down 104-90. The Thunder have put together three straight wins and are 8-2 in their last 10 overall. Oklahoma are coming off a strong down to the wire win against the Celtics 105-104.
Chris Paul has been fantastic this year but I don't expect a continuation of his offense brilliance in this one, not in terms of points scored. The Thunder have put together three straight wins and are 8-2 in their last 10 overall. Oklahoma are coming off a strong down to the wire win against the Celtics 105-104. He is the key to victory for OKC in this one. Love the UNDER here and I'd side with OKC.
Duncan Robinson is on pace to be one of 3 player EVER to make 300 threes in a season (Steph Curry/James Harden). He's doing so shooting at a stunning 45.3% clip.
Robinson's made 7+ 3pt's in 3 straight games.
G Terry Rozier is said to be under the weather and not sure if heâ€™ll go. Where do the points come from if he's out?? I'll wait...
With both George and Leonard on the court the Clippers net rating is 8.0, 2nd in the league behind the Milwaukee Bucks and ahead of the conference-leading Lakers. With both stars playing the Clippers are 21-7.
Oklahoma City is one of the top NBA teams in preventing fast break points because of its commitment to ball security and preventing turnovers. But After a hot start Oklahoma City has regressed and the net rating is a tad inflated for the teamâ€™s current form. It's a small spread because of the importance of the game for OKC but they have regressed to the mean and this feels like one of the best bets of the night at just a one possession line for the Clippers.
Milwaukee will play a road back to back tonight after knocking off the Hornets on the road in a low scoring game 93-85 (failed to cover -12). The Heat defeated the Bucks 131-126 in overtime in Milwaukee in their first meeting this season back in October but they had Herro available to hit from deep - he's one of the most clutch three point shooters this year and he's out for this one.
Heat are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games as a home underdog but I'm going against the grain in this one if Middleton plays. If he doesn't, it's a wash. Good value on Bucks ML imo.
The Lakers hold a 7 game winning streak heading into Saturday. The Lakers last took on the Warriors with a 116-86 victory with Lebron James sitting out. During this 7 game winning streak the Lakers offence has been highly consistent with their lowest team total sitting at 114 points against the Celtics during this winning stretch.
Under is 7-0 in the last 7 meetings! Gotta love that with the number/matchup. That's the safest bet in this one (UNDER).
Trail Blazers are 12-17-1 agaisnt losing teams. The Blazers have a -8.6 net rating with Lillard off the floor this year. That is a bad basketball team without him.
Without Lillard, Portland has been awful against the spread, failing to cover in the five of their last six games. Meanwhile, the Hawks have fared well against Western Conference opponents this season, covering in nine of their last 12 games against the opposing conference. Given how low this spread is, take the Hawks to cover this spread at home.
Spencer Finished with 24 Points, 13 Assists (1 turnover), 8/8 FT
44.4% 3PT last night but he will have much more difficult assignments tonight with Jae Crowder and Jimmy Butler likely sharing the defensive duty of stopping the leader of this offense. I don't think the Nets have depth to keep this one close in MIA tonight. MIA lost 7 of 10 but got a boost of confidence last night and this is a game they should win. They were on a tough, tough road trip in the slide.
Also key to note is that Milwaukee benefits from fast break points but the steady and poised defense of OKC is #1 in the NBA in fastbreak pts allowed per game at an impressive 10.4/game. I'll take OKC as double digit dogs.
What a moment for Bobby Ryan.— Sporting News (@sportingnews) February 28, 2020
In November, he left to get treatment for alcoholism.
He's been sober for 100 days.
He returned to the Senators last night for his first game back.
He scored 3 goals.
He became emotional after the crowd chanted his name.pic.twitter.com/N5UnZTJzxo
I think Trey is kept in check or atleast cancelled out by Dinwiddies shooting and beyond that, the way BKN is playing, I'll take them as my road dog team of the night.

Those teams (Cavs is that role tonight) have gone 10-22 ATS (31.2%). pic.twitter.com/WVUftNaINq
