Portland108.6111.4220.0
Memphis111.5108.9220.4

Prediction

Memphis has won 10 out of their last 12 and get a Portland side that has been terrible on the road this season. However, there is some positives with Damian Lillard averaging 31.7 points over the last three matches. He will need to have a big game if they are any chance, but Memphis is playing quality hoops and should get it done.

Prediction – Memphis Grizzlies (Win) ⭐⭐

Sacramento110.9114.4225.3

Prediction

The Spurs are coming off a good win against the Jazz and get a Kings side that has lost 4 out of its last 5. They will fancy themselves in this clash and are a decent chance to pinch an away win.

Prediction – San Antonio Spurs (Win) ⭐⭐

Game Total Prediction – Over 224.5

Philadelphia105.6106.7212.3

Prediction

The 76ers have won six out of their last seven against the Pelicans, but the Pelicans have been pretty good in their last 2 games. Philadephia has lost their past three and will be looking to get back on the winners table.

Prediction

The Cavs have won 6 on the trot and get a Hawks side that has won just 2 of their past 8 games. The Cavs have also won 5 out of their last 6 against the Hawks and will be full of confidence coming into this clash.

It’s hard to trust the Hawks at the moment, but they are every chance at home.

Brooklyn109.7106.3216.0

Prediction

Brooklyn had 12 players out of commission in their last clash, and much may stay the same. The Nuggets are too strong a team to drop this one.
