Yesterday's tips didn't go exactly to plan, but there's more NBA action tonight, as teams prepare to play their final match before the trade deadline. I wonder if we'll see any last minute moves? 

We've picked out our best bets for the upcoming matches.

NBA Betting Tips

Warriors @ Pacers - Warriors (+6.5) @ 10/11

I backed the Golden State Warriors in yesterday's treble, and they didn't let me down, blowing out an injury-riddled Philadelphia 76ers team, 127-104.

That victory marked Golden State's second in a row, and they'll be eager to make it three wins on the spin here, as it feels like things are maybe starting to click for the Dubs. Draymond Green has been excellent since his return from suspension, and Jonathan Kuminga looks as if he's about to break out as a superstar.

Even though this game is the second of a back-to-back, the Warriors should be the healthier of the two teams tonight, as the Pacers could be without Tyrese Haliburton and Bennedict Mathurin, who will both be huge misses for Indiana.

I'm going to take the Warriors to cover here, as they're looking to keep themselves in the playoff picture.

Mavericks @ Knicks - Knicks @ 13/8

The big question mark coming into this game, is the availability of Jalen Brunson.

The Knicks guard is enjoying an MVP-calibre season and he was listed as questionable to play against his former team on Wednesday night. If Brunson features, and I'm assuming he will, I like the look of New York for this matchup.

The Knicks won for the 10th time in 11 games on Tuesday, when Brunson scored 27 points in a 123-113 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies, before exiting in the fourth quarter due to an ankle sprain.

Dallas have struggled with injuries all season, mainly to their dynamic duo of Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic. The Mavericks have proven to be among the league's best when Irving and Doncic are both available, but the pair have only played together in 24 of Dallas' 51 games.

As mentioned above, if Brunson features, then I'm taking NY for this one.

Knicks to win on money line at 13-8

Timberwolves @ Bucks - Bucks (-1.5) @ 10/11

The Bucks are looking to fix a horrendous start under new head coach Doc Rivers, going 1-4 in his first five games in charge.

Milwaukee are coming off a 114-106 loss against the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday, which followed a 123-108 defeat against the Utah Jazz two nights earlier. Injuries haven't helped their cause, but I still think they can cover the spread here.

The Bucks have been pretty solid at home this season, going 21-5, and despite Minnesota's impressive record of 35-16, they're nowhere near as dangerous on the road as they have been in front of their own fans. The Timberwolves are 16-11 in their away trips so far this term, losing two of their last three, while Milwaukee have won four of their last five home games.

This will be Rivers' first home game in charge of the Bucks, so I'm expecting a stellar performance.
