There's five games taking place tonight in the NBA, with the trade deadline on the horizon, and we've picked out our best bets for the upcoming matches.
Wizards @ Knicks - Knicks (-10.5) @ 10/11
The high-flying New York Knicks welcome the Washington Wizards to Madison Square Garden on Thursday night - their second game of a back-to-back after defeating the Houston Rockets 109-94 on Wednesday.
The Knicks have won seven of their last nine outings, and are currently sat sixth in the Eastern Conference with a record of 24-17. Meanwhile, the Wizards have won just seven games all season and lost to the Pistons on Monday - Detroit's fourth win of the campaign.
New York should flourish here against a struggling Washington side - the Knicks beat this same Wizards team two weeks ago on the second night of a back-to-back at Washington, by 16 points.
Pacers @ Kings - Pacers @ 13/5
This is the first time these two teams have met this season, and there's plenty of optimism in the Indiana camp, after reports emerged on Wednesday that the Pacers acquired Pascal Siakam from the Toronto Raptors in a three-team trade.
It remains to be seen as to whether Siakam features here, and the Pacers are still without star guard Tyrese Haliburton due to injury, but I can see this trade giving the whole Pacers roster a boost.
The Kings are in similar need of a lift themselves, having lost their last three matches. After starting off a five-game road trip with wins over the Detroit Pistons and Charlotte Hornets, they were drubbed 112-93 in Philadelphia before taking back-to-back gut-wrenching losses at Milwaukee and Phoenix.
Even with Indiana missing several key pieces, I think they can steal a win here against a Sacramento side that have been struggling defensively.
Grizzlies @ Timberwolves - Timberwolves (-11.5) @ 10/13
The Timberwolves face the Grizzlies in the second game of a back-to-back, hoping to maintain their lead at the top of the Western Conference.
Minnesota have taken four of the last five head-to-head matchups against Memphis, including two this season, so I'm not expecting the Timberwolves to have too many issues here. They have the best defense in the NBA and they're taking on one of the worst offenses in the form of the Grizzlies.
Additionally, the Timberwolves are 16-2 at home this term, and while Memphis stunned the Golden State Warriors 116-107 in their last outing, they have too many players absent with injury to compete with Minnesota here.
