Detroit Pistons vs Milwaukwee Bucks

Home - Detroit Pistons
Last away matches - L-L-W-L-W-L

The Detroit Pistons finally have a victory in hand and they’ll try for two in a row when they host the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night. The Pistons edged the Knicks 98-95 on Wednesday night, getting 23 points and 18 rebounds from power forward Greg Monroe, who was starting his first game after sitting out the first two due to a suspension. Detroit is still shooting a league-worst 39.3 percent from the floor while averaging a league-low 89.5 points. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is the player who’ll likely be matched up against Antetokounmpo at the outset, and he’ll be giving up six inches in height. Caldwell-Pope seems to be gaining confidence as a scorer though, averaging 15.6 points over the last five games dating to the regular-season finale last April. The second-year player out of Georgia scored 20 against the Knicks on Wednesday, the second time in his career he has hit that mark.

Away - Milwaukwee Bucks
Last away matches - W-L-L-W-W-L

Bucks point guard Brandon Knight, who was drafted eighth overall by the Pistons in 2011 and spent his first two seasons in Detroit, is averaging 18.4 points, 7.2 rebounds and 7.2 assists through the first five games and his first career triple-double seems close at hand. O.J. Mayo gave Milwaukee a nice boost off the bench while combining for 42 points on 14-for-23 shooting the first two games, but has been held to single digits while shooting 7-for-24 the last three. Pistons small forward Josh Smith is experiencing an even worse shooting slump lately and was 2-for-17 from the floor against the Knicks. Milwaukee is looking for second-year shooting guard Giannis Antetokounmpo to take his performance to another level after not showing much improvement during his rookie season. Antetokounmpo, whose shooting percentage and scoring average dropped in each of the last four months of last season, has reached double figures in scoring in two straight games, something he last accomplished in January. The 6-11 Greek took advantage of his height to grab eight rebounds in Wednesday’s loss to the Bulls, something he should be able to repeat against Detroit’s smallish backcourt.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs New Orleans Pelicans

Home - Cleveland Cavaliers
Last away matches - W-L-L-W-L-W

The Cleveland Cavaliers return home from a four game road trip which saw them go 2-2. Cleveland is tied for 3rd place in the Central Division, currently two games behind the division leading Chicago Bulls. On Friday night, the Cavaliers got a much needed 110-101 road victory over the struggling Denver Nuggets. Lebron James scored 22 points and got the ball moving with 11 assists on the night. Teammate Kyrie Irving followed James’ lead by recording a season high six assists. The improved ball movement resulted in Cleveland scoring 56 points in the paint.Cleveland now ranks 17th in scoring offense and 21st in scoring defense.This will be the first home game for the Cleveland Cavaliers since being embarrassed by the New York Knicks on opening night. The Cavaliers are averaging 99.2 points per game on 41.9 percent shooting and are allowing 101.4 points on 49 percent shooting. LeBron James and Kyrie Irving have combined for 43.4 points per game and Kevin Love is averaging 18 points and 11.2 rebounds. Anderson Varejao and Tristan Thompson are two other Cleveland players averaging double-digit points, giving the Cavs a balanced offense that can score with anybody. However, the weakness for the Cleveland Cavaliers has been their defense that’s allowing 38.1 percent shooting from deep. The Cavs have lost six of their last nine games when allowing 100-plus points.

Away - New Orleans Pelicans
Last away matches - W-L-W-L-W-L

The New Orleans Pelicans hope to win their third straight game and continue to turn heads as one of the biggest early surprises in the league. The Pelicans are averaging 97.2 points on 42.1 percent shooting and allowing 95.2 points on 44.5 percent shooting. Anthony Davis has scored 24 or more points in four of the five games and Omer Asik is averaging 10.4 rebounds per game on the season. Tyreke Evans has made at least two threes in four straight games and Jrue Holiday has racked up 20 assists in his last two games. The Pelicans are also second in the league with an average of 47 rebounds per game, as four players are averaging over five boards per game. After beating the Spurs on Saturday, this will be another measuring stick for the young New Orleans Pelicans. The Pelicans are 3-2 on the young season, currently two games behind Memphis and Houston in the ultra-competitive Southwest Division. On Saturday, New Orleans pulled off an impressive 100-99 road victory over the San Antonio Spurs. New Orleans superstar F Anthony Davis connected on a driving layup with 6.6 seconds remaining to give the Pelicans the lead for good. Davis finished with 27 points and grabbed 11 rebounds on the evening.

New York Knicks vs Atlanta Hawks

Home - New York Knicks
Last away matches - L-L-L-W-L-W

The Knicks have not again started the season in the best way. It is obvious that many things are not working right in their team and that there is simply no solution how to set a game of the team. A few days ago, C. Anthony took the responsibility upon himself because of his poor results, but the fact is that he cannot himself, and that he needs the help of the entire team. Only two wins at the start of the season are a bad effect, but there is still plenty to play and it is necessary to change something in their game as soon as possible. Their offensive part is very bad and they are at the very bottom are the league, although we would not say this according to assists, since they are currently the sixth team in the league in assists. Their defence is mediocre and they are in the golden middle.In the first game against the Hawks, they did not have a great solution for Korver, who scored 27 points with six three-pointers, while on the other hand, Anthony lost a lot of balls and had a bad shot (8/20). In addition, there was no real contribution from J.R. Smith, who scored just eight points in 33 minutes. The match was largely on the Knicks’ side in the first half, which they won with 13 points difference, but they all lost that advantage in the second part. The first part shows that the Knicks can play with the Hawks, they just need to close their defence a little bit more.

Away - Atlanta Hawks
Last away matches - L-L-L-W-L-W

The Hawks managed to recover from the abyss in the first half of the match with the Knicks and with good defence on Anthony (they stopped him on only two shots from the game) to get to the turnaround and win at the end. With all that, they managed to force the Knicks to make even 29 fouls which is 12 more than Atlanta did, and which ultimately brought the advantage to the Hawks of 28:8, when their scores from the free throw line are in question. The Hawks wanted a contact game, knowing that the Knicks easily make fouls, which the coach of the Knicks, Fisher, admitted. The fact that guard Calderon and Prigioni were absent due to injury certainly helped the Hawks a lot, because New York had no real alternative for them.Atlanta this season, as in previous, is very good in the number of assists, so they are also currently second in the league, and all that had brought them the improvement in efficiency and they are now eighth in the entire league in that category. The Hawks have room for improvement, that is for sure, because Horford and Millsap can be much better than their current numbers. In the absence of their true effect, the team is led by duo Teague – Korver, while the wingers Carroll and Scott score over ten points per game. Their reservist and playmaker Schroder is getting more and more chances, which he certainly ses in a good way, while we expected more from the newcomer Sefolosha (he currently scores only 3.6 points per game).

Home - (+1.50)
Away - (-1.50)

LA Clippers vs San Antonio Spurs

Home - LA Clippers
Last away matches - L-W-L-L-L-L

The Los Angeles Clippers have a new owner and higher expectations for this season. This is a team that has the talent, coaching, and experience to make a run at an NBA Championship. However, to reach their goal the Clippers must make a commitment to defending on a nightly basis.The Los Angeles Clippers have also been shaky out of the gate and rank dead last in the league with an average of 34.3 rebounds per game. Overall, the Clippers are averaging 103.3 points on 44.9 percent shooting and are allowing 103.8 points on 49.1 percent shooting. The lack of defense has really been hurting the Clippers, as they’ve allowed 100 or more points in 13 of their last 16 regular season games. Blake Griffin leads the Clippers with 24.5 points and is probable for this matchup despite an illness. Jamal Crawford is averaging 20.2 points on 43.2 percent shooting and Chris Paul has racked up double-digit assists in his last five games. In order for the Clippers to get back on track, they have to get their rebounding in order, which shouldn’t be an issue considering they’re one of the bigger teams in the league.

Away - San Antonio Spurs
Last away matches - L-L-L-L-W-L

San Antonio is off to a rough start and currently sits in last place in the Southwest Division, three games behind Memphis and Houston. On Saturday night, the Spurs dropped a shocking 100-99 loss against the visiting New Orleans Pelicans. Danny Green hit three free throws to put San Antonio ahead, but Pelicans F Anthony Davis made a driving layup with 6.6 seconds left for the final score. Tony Parker led the Spurs in scoring with 28 points.The San Antonio Spurs have lost three of their last four games and are still looking for their first road win of the season. The Spurs are averaging 92.8 points on 43.2 percent shooting and allowing 96.8 points on 44.7 percent shooting. Tony Parker leads the Spurs with 18.6 points and 4.2 assists, while Tim Duncan is averaging 14.5 points and 11.5 rebounds. However, the Spurs are shooting just 31.5 percent from downtown and are turning the ball over 16.6 times per game. The Spurs lack of offense has to be frustrating and it doesn’t help that Manu Ginobili is shooting under 40 percent from the field. Defensively, the San Antonio Spurs have lost five of their last eight games when allowing 100-plus points. Marco Belinelli remains questionable for this matchup with a groin injury.

Asian Handicap

Away - (+3.50)

Toronto Raptors vs Orlando Magic

Home - Toronto Raptors
Last away matches - W-L-W-W-W-W

The Toronto Raptors have soared to a 6-1 start this season. The Raptors are looking to build off a season in which they posted a franchise high in wins and won a first round playoff series. Toronto boasts a young and talented starting lineup that should be good for years to come. The Raptors currently sit atop the Atlantic Division with a lead of 1.5 games over the Brooklyn Nets. On Sunday night, Toronto remained perfect at home with a 120-88 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers. DeMar Derozan scored 24 points in 26 minutes to lead all scorers.They have started the season an impressive six wins in seven games and will be looking to build on a four-game win streak after making light work of the 76ers on Sunday. DeMar DeRozan led six players in double figures with 24 points while Terrence Ross had 17 as the Raptors blew away the winless 76ers by 120-88 in an absolute rout. As a team, the Raptors shot over 56 percent from the field which is really no surprise as they are currently averaging a league-best 107.4 points per game so far, but their defense has been right up there as well, allowing just 95.9 points which is good enough for eighth in the league.

Away - Orlando Magic
Last away matches - L-W-L-L-L-L

Orlando is a young team that is clearly in rebuilding mode and likely headed for another season in the lottery. The Magic currently sit at the bottom of the Southeast Division, three games back of division leaders Miami and Washington. On Sunday evening the Magic were defeated 104-96 on the road against the Brooklyn Nets. Orlando was beat up on the glass against Brooklyn by a 45-31 count. Nikola Vucevic led the Magic with 27 points and 12 rebounds.Through seven games, Orlando ranks 22nd in scoring offense and 18th in scoring defense.The Orlando Magic have won just two of their first seven games and are coming into this one off a 104-94 loss against the Nets despite a big night of 27 points and 12 rebounds from Nikola Vucevic. Evan Fournier added 19 points while the Magic shot a healthy 52 percent as a team, but the Nets employed a small lineup in the fourth quarter and it really slowed down Vucevic, who couldn't even attempt a shot for the entire fourth quarter. With Elfrid Payton still struggling to find any sort of consistency, the Magic have sputtered on the offense without the injured Victor Oladipo, averaging just 95.1 points per game which ranks them at 22nd in the league.

Memphis Grizzlies vs LA Lakers

Home - Memphis Grizzlies
Last away matches - L-W-W-W-W-L

The Memphis Grizzlies just had their win streak halted at six on Saturday when they ran into the young Bucks who beat them by 93-92. Zach Randolph led the scoring with 22 points and 14 rebounds while Marc Gasol added 18 points, but the rest of the team combined to shoot just 18 of 57 which is a paltry 31.5 percent from the field. Still, despite their poor shooting, the Grizzlies still found themselves up by 92-90 with eight seconds remaining, but with the game on the line the Grizzlies couldn't stop the Bucks' Brandon Knight who drove to the lane and converted an and one to snap the Griz's win streak. Through seven games, Memphis ranks 25th in scoring offense and 1st in scoring defense.

Away - LA Lakers
Last away matches - L-L-L-L-W-W

The Los Angeles Lakers, but they can finally breathe a little sigh of relief after earning their first win of the season on Sunday against the Hornets. Kobe Bryant and Jeremy Lin both scored 21 points while Carlos Boozer added 16 as the Lakers rallied from an early double digit deficit to win by 107-92 behind a dominant 65-41 second half effort. Coming off four days rest and playing at home, this win didn't come as too much of a surprise, but they have to take the wins where they can because their next seven opponents are all above .500. Through six games, Los Angeles ranks 11th in scoring offense and 30th in scoring defense.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Oklahoma City Thunder

Home - Milwaukee Bucks
Last away matches - L-W-L-L-W-W

The Milwaukee Bucks have split their last four games and are 2-1 at home. The Bucks have been surprisingly good on defense, holding teams to 94.7 points on 43 percent shooting from the field and 29.9 percent shooting from downtown. The Bucks have allowed just two teams to score above 100 points this season, and they’re 3-2 when they don’t. Offensively, Brandon Knight leads the way with 17.6 points and 7.3 assists, while rookie Jabari Parker has scored in the double figures in five of his last six games and is 14-25 from the field in his last two. Overall, the Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 93.9 points on 43.6 percent shooting from the field. If O.J. Mayo and a couple others can start stepping it up offensively, the Bucks could be one of the bigger surprises this season with their defense playing the way it is.

Away - Oklahoma City Thunder
Last away matches - L-L-L-L-L-W

The Oklahoma City Thunder look for their first road of the season as they continue to lick their wounds with all of their injuries. Along with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook out, Andre Roberson and Perry Jones are questionable for this matchup. The Thunder are being forced to rely on a trio made up of Serge Ibaka, Jeremy Lamb and Reggie Jackson until everybody returns. Jackson is doing his best to keep OKC in games, as he’s racked up 44 points and 14 assists in his last two games. Overall, the Oklahoma City Thunder are averaging 92 points on 44.7 percent shooting and are allowing 98.6 points on 43.8 percent shooting. The Thunder have won 10 of their last 12 games when holding a team under 100 points and with the lack of weapons currently, they’ll have to continue that trend in order to win games.

Away - (+2.50)

Dallas Mavericks vs Sacramento Kings

Home - Dallas Mavericks
Last away matches - W-L-W-L-W-L

The Dallas Mavericks look all set to become true contenders in the playoffs this season, but first they will have to find a way back into the winner's circle after getting beaten by the Heat 105-96 on Sunday. Monta Ellis had a nice game of 23 points while Dirk Nowitzki added 17, but the Mavs simply couldn't contain the Heat who shot over 55 percent from the field, led by Luol Deng who poured in 30 points. In fact, so far this season the Mavs have allowed an average of 102.1 points per game which ranks them at 23rd in the season, but they do rank 4th in the league in offense with 105 points per game. With the loss, Dallas falls to 4-3 on the season and 2-1 at home.

Away - Sacramento Kings
Last away matches - L-W-W-W-W-L

With a new pass-first point guard in Darren Collison and a more mature DeMarcus Cousins, the Sacramento Kings have really begun to raise some eyebrows at this early stage of the season, winning five of their first seven games. Unfortunately, the Kings just had their five-game win streak snapped on Sunday by the shorthanded Thunder when they lost by 101-93. Rudy Gay continued his hot form with 23 points while DeMarcus Cousins and Darren Collison added 16 points each, but the Kings were sluggish out of the gates and found themselves playing catchup for the entire game after falling behind by as many as 17 points in the third quarter. Still, not even the most loyal of Kings fans had this team at 5-2 after seven games so this is still a fantastic start to a promising season.

Indiana Pacers vs Denver Nuggets

Home - Indiana Pacers
Last away matches - W-L-L-L-W-L

The Indiana Pacers are doing their best to remain competive despite all of the early season injuries. Indiana knew going into the season that they would be without Paul George due to injury and Lance Stephenson through free agency. However, right before the season began the Pacers also lost starters David West and George Hill to injury as well. C Roy Hibbert is currently the only starter from last year’s team who is healthy. Hibbert is averaging 14.8 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 3.3 blocks, which are all above his career averages. Indiana is coming off an impressive 81-75 road victory on Wednesday night. Through seven games, Denver ranks 14th in scoring offense and 29th in scoring defense.

Away - Denver Nuggets
Last away matches - L-L-L-L-W-L

Denver has looked really bad during the losing streak on the defensive end. Over the last six games teams are averaging 117 points a game against the Nuggets. Denver is currently in last place in the Northwest Division, four games back of division leading Portland. On Wednesday night, Portland outscored Denver 84-50 in the first half on the way to a 130-113 win. The Nuggets allowed the Trail Blazers to shoot 16 for 33 from the three point line in the loss. Ty Lawson led four Nuggets in double figures with a game high 32 points. The Pacers rank 29th in scoring offense and 3rd in scoring defense.

Orlando Magic vs Milwaukee Bucks

Home - Orlando Magic
Last away matches - W-L-L-W-L-L

The last time the Orlando Magic lost to the Milwaukee Bucks at home, Dwight Howard was a gangly 19-year-old rookie. The Magic will try to make it 17 straight home triumphs against the much-improved Bucks when they meet Friday. Orlando is certainly not the same team since Howard departed three seasons ago, but the Magic have still managed to win the last three at home against the Bucks since his departure.Howard is gone but Nikola Vucevic continues his best impersonation, averaging 18.7 points and 11.9 rebounds. He had 20 points and 13 boards and got help from Evan Fournier's career-high 28 points as Orlando salvaged the final game of a three-game road trip with a 97-95 win over the Knicks on Wednesday. Rookie point guard Elfrid Payton has a more than respectable assist-to-turnover ratio (2.3 to 1), but he's shooting just 33.8 percent from the field, 50 percent from the line, and he hasn't attempted a 3-pointer all season.

Away - Milwaukee Bucks
Last away matches - L-W-L-L-W-W

The Bucks got 29 points from Michael Redd in the last road triumph against Orlando on Dec. 29, 2004 in the first season during a stretch of nine losing seasons in a 10-year span. Milwaukee has had such a dearth of talent over the last decade that no Buck has played in an All-Star game since Redd in 2003-04. Milwaukee first-year coach Jason Kidd hopes that will change very soon with 2014 second-overall pick Jabari Parker and 20-year-old Giannis Antetokounmpo ending that slide and helping the Bucks stop the losing skid in Orlando on Friday.The Bucks have struggled against everybody on the road, losing 27 of their last 29. One area, however, that Kidd has improved the club is the bench; the Bucks lead the league with 46.4 bench points per game and the reserves have outscored the starters three times already this season. O.J. Mayo (12.1 points, 3.5 assists) and Antetokounmpo (10.9 points, 5.1 rebounds) are thriving in those roles. "We've talked about being a deep team and everybody having a chance to play," Kidd told the Journal Sentinel. "That group that comes in, the ball moves and they trust one another. Defensively they're a unit and they're playing extremely hard." The hard work showed Tuesday as the Bucks held Oklahoma City to 33.3 percent shooting in an 85-78 win.

Atlanta Hawks vs Miami Heat

Home - Atlanta Hawks
Last away matches - W-L-L-L-W-L

Atlanta will be short-handed again with Carroll (groin) out and Scott (back) probable, but the Hawks will still have their dominant post duo of Al Horford (13.1 points, 7.1 rebounds) and Paul Millsap (16.6 points, 8.6 rebounds). The backcourt duo of Jeff Teague (16.3 points, 7.9 assists) and Kyle Korver (16.7 points, 4.7 rebounds) also has played well. Scott (9.7 points) has been a spark off the bench, a role that falls to diminutive guard Dennis Schroder (8.3 points) if Scott is not available.

Away - Miami Heat
Last away matches - W-L-W-W-W-L

The Miami Heat might not be searching for the panic button, but they no longer have a player who can provide instant offense, and that could be a problem when they visit the defensive-minded Atlanta Hawks on Friday. The Heat's offense sputtered in an 81-75 to visiting Indiana on Wednesday, and LeBron James wasn't there to bail them out late. The Hawks have won the past two meetings after dropping nine straight to Miami.The Heat have shown flashes of offensive brilliance, but they've been inconsistent at that end, topping 100 points in each of their five wins but averaging 85 points in their three losses. "You have to figure out a way to pull a few of these games out throughout the year," star guard Dwyane Wade told reporters after the loss to the short-handed Pacers. "We didn't do that (Wednesday), but hopefully next time we're in this situation we learn from (it) and we figure out a way." The Hawks rallied late and stiffened on defense to claim their third straight win, a 100-97 home victory over Utah, on Wednesday despite playing without starting forward DeMarre Carroll and key reserve Mike Scott.

Boston Celtic vs Cleveland Cavaliers

Home - Boston Celtic
Last away matches - W-L-L-W-W-L

The Boston Celtics are playing an up-tempo style under second year head coach Brad Stevens. This style seems to fit a roster of young players that not much is expected of this season. Boston is currently in third place in the Atlantic Division, 3.5 games behind the division leading Toronto Raptors.The Celtics’ defense was very porous in a 109-94 loss at home against the injury riddled Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night. Boston shot an icy 9 for 33 from the three point line on the evening. Rajon Rondo was solid in the loss, going for 20 points, 12 assists, and 9 rebounds. Boston ranks 5th in scoring offense and 28th in scoring defense on the season.

Away - Cleveland Cavaliers
Last away matches - W-L-L-W-L-W

The Cleveland Cavaliers will look to make it three wins in a row when they visit the Boston Celtics on Friday night.Much was expected for Cleveland when Lebron James returned home in free agency and the team landed Kevin Love in a trade with Minnesota. James has stressed that it will be a process for this team to gel. However, the ball movement for the Cavaliers has looked much better over the past two games. Cleveland is currently two games behind the Chicago Bulls for first place in the Central Division. On Monday, the Cavaliers defeated the New Orleans Pelicans 118-111 at home. Lebron James tallied 32 points, 11 rebounds, and 9 assists in his second home game of the season.Through six games, Cleveland ranks 12th in scoring offense and 25th in scoring defense.

The Knicks recently suffered a surprising defeat against the Orlando Magic. There was some confusion down the stretch and J.R. Smith missed a last minute three pointer. They will have an opportunity to rebound against the Utah Jazz, who are headed to Madison Square Garden. But the Knicks need to fix some issues with their team if they want to walk away with a win.New York has found themselves with a 2-7 record to start the year. Given the resurgence of talent in the East, this won't be enough to get them in to the playoffs. The Knicks are averaging just 91.6 points per game up until this point. The Knicks have actually won six straight games against the Jazz, making this an important test.

Away - Utah Jazz
Last away matches - L-L-W-L-L-W

Utah has opened up their season with a 3-6 record. They too need to turn things around if they want a post season appearance. They have had some players step forward and make their presence known against their opponents.Derrick Favors has been a positive asset on both ends of the court. Alec Burks and Gordon Hayward have also emerged as star performers for the team. The Jazz should look to exploit the perimeter defense of the Knicks, given the volume of three pointers they have given up so far.

New York Knicks vs Denver Nuggets

Home - New York Knicks
Last away matches - L-L-L-W-L-W

The New York Knicks are off to a slow start under rookie head coach Derek Fisher. Struggles were to be expected as Fisher tries to implement the triangle offense and manage a roster of overpaid and underachieving players. The Knicks are likely doomed for this season and it will be interesting to see what team president Phil Jackson can do with some cap space this summer. New York is currently in fourth place in the Atlantic Division, 5.5 games behind division leading Toronto. On Friday night the Knicks lost 102-100 to the visiting Utah Jazz on a Trey Burke three pointer at the buzzer. Carmelo Anthony went for a season high 46 points and seven rebounds in the loss.New York ranks 26th in scoring offense and 17th in scoring defense on the season.

Away - Denver Nuggets
Last away matches - W-L-L-L-L-W

Denver is currently in last place in the Northwest Division, 3.5 games behind the division leading Portland Trail Blazers. The Nuggets snapped a six game losing streak on Friday with a 108-87 road conquest of the Indiana Pacers. Denver opened a margin as large as 32 points thanks in large part to a 34-19 second quarter. Ty Lawson recorded a double-double with 11 points and 10 assists. The Nuggets shot just under 50% from the field and turned the ball over only eight times in the win.Through eight games, Denver ranks 13th in scoring offense and 28th in scoring defense.

Miami Heat vs Milwaukee Bucks

Home - Miami Heat
Last away matches - L-W-L-W-W-W

The Miami Heat have lost four of their last six games and are still trying to figure things out post LeBron James. Overall, the Heat are averaging 99.2 points on 47.4 percent shooting and are allowing 97.8 points on 46 percent shooting. The Miami Heat have lost eight of their last nine regular season games when allowing 100-plus points. Dwyane Wade is expected to miss his second straight game with a hamstring injury. Chris Bosh leads Miami with 21.6 points and 9.1 rebounds, while Luol Deng is averaging close to 15 points on 50.5 percent shooting from the field. Josh McRoberts, who was signed to be a key contributor, has played no more than 23 minutes this season and Shawne Williams is 9-11 from downtown in his last two games.

Away - Milwaukee BUcks
Last away matches - L-L-W-L-L-W

Milwaukee is lead by the play of their young dynamic guards. Brandon Knight has been a scoring revelation from the point while OJ Mayo and Jabari Parker both have the ability to get hot from the perimeter. With those two working well that leaves more room for Milwaukee to bang down low with Ersan Ilyasova and Larry Sanders. If Milwaukee can get to the rim they will be able to push a weak Miami interior around.

Oklahoma City Thunder vs Houston Rockets

Home - Oklahoma City Thunder
Last away matches - W-L-L-L-L-L

The Oklahoma City Thunder are in a holding pattern at the moment, as they enter this game at 3-7 and unsure when Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook will return to action at 100%. Honestly the Thunder have probably beaten expectations slightly over the past couple weeks though with wins against the Celtics and Kings and a close loss against Memphis. Reggie Jackson is really stepping up at point guard averaging 22 points, eight assists and four rebounds per game which is actually what we saw him do last season as well; next year I would expect him to demand a starting job in the league as he has the talent for it. Serge Ibaka is averaging just over 16 points per game while also averaging 7.6 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game. Steven Adams is still rounding out his offensive game after overtaking Kendrick Perkins at the center position and the Thunder are still figuring out the shooting guard spot with Anthony Morrow seemingly a better option than the unpolished Jeremy Lamb. Lance Thomas is a pretty lackluster replacement at SF with both Durant and Perry Jones out. Oklahoma City is giving max effort nightly and Scott Brooks is motivating his guys well, but when the offense typically revolves so heavily around a player like Kevin Durant even the best teams would struggle to adjust.

Away - Houston Rockets
Last away matches - W-W-W-W-W-W

The Houston Rockets are arguably the best team in the NBA right now sitting at 8-1 due in large part to a newfound commitment on the defensive end (91.6 points allowed per game, 1st in NBA). While the team’s defensive prowess was on display in their latest win, holding the winless 76ers to just 87 points, the offense was inexplicably absent scoring just 88 points on 37% shooting in what turned into a nail biter despite the Rockets being favored by 17 points. James Harden continues to be a prolific scorer and offensive catalyst for the Rockets, averaging 26 points, six rebounds, and seven assists per game while eclipsing 20 points in every game thus far in November. Center Dwight Howard is in peak form as well averaging 20 points and 12 rebounds with nearly three blocks per game. The Rockets replaced Chandler Parsons well by bringing in veteran Trevor Ariza and Patrick Beverly is an irritating defender for opposing point guards, but the Rockets are still trying to find continuity at the power forward position as Donatas Motiejunas appears to be more of a bench scorer than a starter in relief of the injured Terrence Jones. The Rockets aren’t especially deep from the bench right now, so expect a lot of three point shooting especially from Jason Terry, Francisco Garcia and Kostas Papanikolaou.

LA Lakers vs Golden State Warrior

Home - LA Lakers
Last away matches - L-L-L-L-L-L

The Los Angeles Lakers have continued their torturous season with a 93-80 loss against the Spurs on Friday. Carlos Boozer had a nice game of 19 points while Jeremy Lin added 15, but the story of the night was Kobe Bryant's career-worst shooting night of one for 14. It really is hard to pull out any positives from LA's season so far because they're just 1-8 so far and are second-last in the league in points allowed at 109.4 points per game.In ATS trends, the Warriors are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a losing record and 4-1 ATS in their last five road games, while the Lakers are 3-1-1 ATS in their last five games overall and 2-6-2 ATS in their last 10 home games.

Away - Golden State Warrior
Last away matches - L-W-W-W-L-L

The Golden State Warriors confirmed their status as one of the hottest teams in the league with a 112-87 rout of the Hornets last night thanks to some hot shooting from the usual suspects. Klay Thompson had four threes on his way to a game-high 21 points, while Stephen Curry added 19 points and nine assists as the Warriors led by 67-46 at halftime before cruising in the second half. Four other players finished in double digits in scoring including 17 points from Harrison Barnes, but the root of the Warriors' success is that they're just moving the ball so well as a team, ranking third in the league with 24.8 assists per game, including 30 assists last night. With the easy win, the Warriors improved to 7-2 on the season and 4-1 at home.

Charlotte Hornets vs Dallas Mavericks

Home - Charlotte Hornets
Last away matches - L-W-L-L-L-L

The Charlotte Hornets will be glad to return home after a four game west coast trip that saw them only win once in Phoenix. The most disappointing loss of the trip came in the opener when they gave the Los Angeles Lakers their only win on the young season. Charlotte is currently 3.5 games back of Southeast Division leading Washington. On Saturday, the Hornets lost the finale of the trip 112-87 against the red hot Golden State Warriors. Charlotte looked tired and fell behind 67-46 at halftime. Al Jefferson led three Hornets in double figures with 19 points.The Hornets rank 22nd in scoring offense and 17th in scoring defense this season.

Away - Dallas Mavericks
Last away matches - W-L-W-L-W-L

Dallas will play their next two games on the road as they look to build on a three game winning streak. The Mavericks 7-3 start is good for only third place behind one loss Memphis and Houston in the ultra-competitive Southwest Division. On Saturday, the Mavericks took care of business 131-117 over the Minnesota Timberwolves at home. Dallas raced to a 63-44 halftime lead and led by as many as 26 points in the second half. Monta Ellis scored 30 points to lead eight Mavericks in double figures in the win.Through ten games, Dallas ranks 1st in scoring offense and 18th in scoring defense.

Home - Cleveland Cavaliers
Last away matches - W-W-L-L-W-L

The Cleveland Cavaliers lost three of their first four games in a shaky start to the season, but seem to be rolling now as they go for a fifth straight win after thumping the Hawks on Saturday. LeBron James led the way with 32 points while Kyrie Irving added 20 as the Cavs got ridiculously hot early on, making their first nine threes in the first quarter leading to a league season-best 19 for 31 on threes for the game. Cleveland went on to lead by 71-43 points at halftime and win by 127-94 to improve to 5-3 overall and 2-1 at home. The Cavs were really stumbling through the early stages of the season before they first met the Nuggets on Nov 7 and won by 110-101.

Away - Denver Nuggets
Last away matches - L-W-L-L-L-L

The Denver Nuggets have far and away been one of the most disappointing teams so far this season. On Friday, the Nuggets were able to snap a six-game losing streak against the shorthanded Pacers, but just couldn't get anything going in last night's loss against the struggling Knicks. Pouring in 31 points as a team in the first quarter, the Nuggets looked to be rolling on the offensive end, but a horrendous second quarter where they scored just eight points left them playing catchup the rest of the way. Arron Afflalo made five treys on his way to 18 points, while Ty Lawson added 17 points and nine assists, but this game was over before halftime. With the loss, Denver falls to 2-7 on the season and just 1-4 on the road.

The Celtics were undone by a poor fourth quarter against the Cavaliers, getting outscored 38-20 in the final stanza, while the Suns need to come out of the locker room with a better defensive mentality than they had while being outpaced 42-20 in the third quarter in Los Angeles. "We played decent for a half," said Phoenix coach Jeff Hornacek, whose team was tied at 54 at the break. "But in the third quarter, we gave them too many easy plays." The Suns swept two meetings last season and have won six of the last nine.

Away - Phoenix Suns
Last away matches - L-W-L-W-L-W

Phoenix likes to play at a fast pace and capitalize in transition, averaging 17.3 fast-break points - the second-most in the league. A strong second unit allows the Suns to push the pace, as reserves Isaiah Thomas (16.7 points) and Gerald Green (14.6 points) are among the team's top three scorers along with guard Goran Dragic (15 points). in fact, Phoenix's leading scorer has come from the bench in all five of its victories.

Home - Detroit Pistons
Last away matches - L-W-L-L-L-L

The Orlando Magic have split their last eight games and are turning to their defense to be somewhat of a surprise team. The Magic are allowing 99.1 points on 44.7 percent shooting, and have won three of their last four games when allowing less than 100 points. Offensively, the Orlando Magic are averaging 96.1 points on 46.5 percent shooting. While the shooting percentage is better than the league average, the Magic’s scoring total is good for 23rd in the league. Nikola Vucevic leads the way with 18.2 points and 11.5 rebounds, and Tobias Harris is averaging 17.9 points on 46.3 percent shooting. Channing Frye, Orlando’s big signing during the offseason, is 6-11 from downtown in his last two games. Luke Ridnour is questionable for this game and Kyle O'Quinn is doubtful.

Away - Orlando Magic
Last away matches - L-W-L-L-W-L

The Detroit Pistons have lost four of their last five games and are also struggling to put the ball in the hoop. The Pistons are averaging just 93 points on 41.8 percent shooting, numbers that have killed them so far this season. The Detroit Pistons have lost 10 of their last 13 games when scoring less than 100 points. Greg Monroe leads the way with 16.8 points and 10.8 rebounds, while Brandon Jennings is chipping in 16.2 points and six assists. Andre Drummond has grabbed 25 rebounds in his last two games, but is just 7-18 from the field in his last three games. The Pistons need more out of their big man if they’re going to be a threat in the East this season. Defensively, the Pistons are allowing 96.8 points on 43.6 percent shooting.

San Antonio Spurs vs Philadelphia 76ers

Home - San Antonio Spurs
Last away matches - L-W-W-W-L-L

The Spurs suffered a 94-91 loss to the Sacramento Kings on Saturday for their lone defeat during a four-game road trip. “We hung in there; we just ran out of juice a little bit,” San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich told reporters. “A couple of guys were probably a little tired at the end of the road trip, but everybody goes through that.” Backup guard Manu Ginobili led the way with 21 points, but his tying 3-point attempt was off the mark at the buzzer. The loss to Sacramento prompted normally quiet small forward Kawhi Leonard to express his feelings over both the game and San Antonio’s slow nine-game start. “We could have stepped it up earlier and played with more intensity,” Leonard told reporters. “We have to play the whole 48 minutes.” Leonard wore a bandage over his left eye after getting clubbed in the face against the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday and requiring five stitches to close the wound.

Away - Philadelphia 76ers
Last away matches - L-L-L-L-L-L

The Philadelphia 76ers are looking for their first victory, and it could be tough to come by when they visit the San Antonio Spurs on Monday. Philadelphia’s 0-9 start is its worst since the 1972-73 squad lost its first 15, and the 76ers let a late lead get away in Friday’s 88-87 loss to the Houston Rockets. Philadelphia has lost 10 straight visits to San Antonio and the last six overall meetings. It certainly was a missed opportunity when Philadelphia lost to Houston as second-year point guard Michael Carter-Williams committed a turnover prior to the Rockets’ game-winning shot and then missed a jumper at the buzzer. “I think we played with a lot of heart, and that’s how we’re going to have to be to stay in games,” Carter-Williams told reporters. The 76ers are looking for more production from power forward Nerlens Noel, who is having trouble staying healthy but is now back from an ankle injury.

Atlanta Hawks vs LA Lakers

Home - Atlanta Hawks
Last away matches - L-W-L-L-L-W

The Atlanta Hawks are currently sitting just one game above the .500 mark, with a record of 5-4. The Hawks are strong offensively this season, putting up an average of 101.9 points per game, but their defense has been an issue thus far. Atlanta has played well as of late however, winning four out of their last five, with their only loss coming last time out to the Cavs on Saturday, falling to Cleveland 127-94.

Away - LA Lakers
Last away matches - L-L-L-L-L-L

Bryant put up a season-high 44 points on Sunday but Los Angeles dropped a 136-115 decision at home to the Golden State Warriors, who shot 53.5 percent in the drubbing and dropped 14 3-pointers. The Lakers are the worst defensive team in the league, surrendering an average of 112.1 points, and are going up against a Hawks squad that put up 114 in its last home game against Miami on Friday. Atlanta came out flat on the second night of the back-to-back on Saturday and some holes in the defense were exposed in a 127-94 setback. The Lakers are just 1-9 on the year, and last time out, the Lakers got destroyed by the Golden State Warriors, 136-115. Watching the Lakers the past few seasons reminds me of the 49ers in the NFL after Steve Young. Teams got beat up by them for so long, and now that they are down, nobody is pulling any punches and relishing the fact that they can beat up on the Lakers. One positive for the Lakers is that their offense has been respectable this year, but the defense is giving up more than 112 points per game on average, and no matter what you are scoring, you aren’t going to win many games that way.

Milwaukee's offensive attack is actually producing 3.7 points fewer per game than last season's dismal 15-win squad, but the Bucks' ability to tighten things up on the defensive end has turned around their fortunes early on. Milwaukee ranks third in the league in scoring defense (92.6) and steals per game (9.3) while ranking fourth in field-goal percentage defense (41.Cool and 10th in blocks (5.3) entering Monday's action. They were in the bottom third in each category a season ago and held just four teams under 85 points; Miami was already the fourth victim to suffer that fate under Kidd's Bucks.

Away - New York Knicks
Last away matches - L-L-L-W-L-W

The New York Knicks have some talent, and a hall of fame coach, but it is taking awhile for this Knick team to put all of the pieces together. I thought coming into the season that the Knicks would be on the cusp of the playoffs this year, and while the season is still very, very young, the Knicks can’t fall too far behind in what is starting to look like a competitive West this season. The Knicks and their new offense are averaging just 93.9 points per game this season, putting them towards the bottom of the league. New York did earn a win in their last outing, defeating the Nuggets at home on Sunday, but that was their first win in their last seven games heading into Sunday.

While Favors was solid in the loss to Toronto and each of his fellow starters managed to score in double figures, the lack of depth was an issue once more for Utah, which received 23 points on 7-for-16 shooting from six substitutes. The Jazz's bench contributes an average of 25.5 points, which is 28th in the NBA. Only two reserves (Trevor Booker and Joe Ingles) reached double digits on the five-game trip, both netting exactly 10 points on just one occasion.

Away - Oklahoma City Thunder
Last away matches - W-L-L-L-L-L

Oklahoma City was going to struggle to score points with superstars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook out with injuries, but the depths of the club's current struggles are quite remarkable. The shorthanded Thunder hit the road again looking to find some answers when they visit Utah on Tuesday in the first of two away from home. Oklahoma City shot 29.4 percent while matching the lowest-scoring output in franchise history in Sunday's embarrassing 69-65 home loss to Houston. Among the few positives for Oklahoma City has been the progress of second-year center Steven Adams, who has teamed with backup Kendrick Perkins and power forward Serge Ibaka to give the squad some occasional nastiness along the frontline. Adams has 11 blocked shots over the last two games for a team that limits opponents to 36.1 points in the paint, ninth-fewest in the league. Adams' offensive game is rather pedestrian, but he has four double-digit scoring efforts already after securing just three in 81 games as a rookie.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been playing better since their much talked about 1-3 start. Cleveland is moving the ball better on offense and beginning to trust each other on defense. The Cavaliers are currently in 2nd place in the Central Division, two games behind the division leading Chicago Bulls. On Monday, Cleveland saw their four game winning sneak snapped at home in a 106-97 loss against the Denver Nuggets. Lebron James scored 22 points to go along with nine rebounds and five assists in the loss. Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving, and Dion Waiters each chipped in 20 points.The Cavaliers rank 4th in scoring offense and 24th in scoring defense on the season.

The Spurs seem to have shaken off some of their championship hangover, winning four of their last five games. San Antonio is currently in 4th place in the Southwest Division, 3.5 games behind division leading Memphis. On Monday, the Spurs took apart the lowly Philadelphia 76ers by the score of 100-75 at home.

The Orlando Magic started the season with just two wins in their first eight outings, but have since gone on to win three of their last four overall including a 107-93 win at Detroit on Monday. Nikola Vucevic led five players in double figures with his 25 points and 14 rebounds, while Tobias Harris continued his breakout season with 24 points on 10 of 17 shooting. As a team, the Magic shot a healthy 51.9 percent from the field and 13 of 26 from the three-point line and that was because they were just sharing the ball so efficiently, finishing the game with a season-high 33 assists on 41 made shots. Orlando is now 5-7 overall and 3-5 on the road.

Away - LA Clippers
Last away matches - L-W-L-L-L-L

The Los Angeles Clippers have really struggled to find consistency so far this season. The Clippers have gone 5-4 to start the season, but have yet to beat a team with a record above .500. In LA's last outing on Monday night, Jamal Crawford scored a team-high 24 points off the bench, while Blake Griffin scored some late buckets to finish with 19, but the rest of the Clippers were completely ineffective against the Bulls who ran away with a 105-89 win to stay undefeated on the road. All losses are bad, but this one was just worse than the others because the Bulls were without Derrick Rose and Pau Gasol, but were still far and away the better team across the board.

The Philadelphia 76ers have yet to win a game and continue to struggle at both ends of the court. Overall, the 76ers are averaging 88.5 points on 40.3 percent shooting and are allowing 105.4 points on 46.4 percent shooting. Needless to say, it’s been absolutely brutal if you’re a 76ers fan. Tony Wroten leads the way with 19.1 points and six assists, while Michael Carter-Williams is averaging 16 points on 37.8 percent shooting in the three games he’s played. Henry Sims is 9-14 from the field with 11 rebounds in his last two games, and rookie K.J. McDaniels has two steals in three of his last five games. The Philadelphia 76ers have allowed 100-plus points in six of their last eight games and this may be their most winnable game for the next two weeks.

Away - Boston Celtics
Last away matches - W-L-L-W-W-L

The Boston Celtics have lost three straight games and are looking for their second road win of the season. The Celtics offense has carried the load all season, averaging 107.4 points on 48.4 percent shooting. Jeff Green leads Boston with 19.9 points on 45 percent shooting and Avery Bradley is averaging 15.3 points on 47.2 percent shooting. Rajon Rondo is averaging 11.6 assists and Jared Sullinger is 14-30 from the field with 18 rebounds in his last two games. Defensively, the Boston Celtics are allowing 109.4 points on 48.3 percent shooting, which has prevented them from really becoming a surprise team early on. The Celtics have lost eight of their last 10 games when allowing 100-plus points. This is just the Celtics fourth road game of the season and they’re 1-2.

Washington Wizards vs Dallas Mavericks

Home - Washington Wizards
Last away matches - W-L-W-W-L-L

The Washington Wizards will be playing host this Wednesday night as the Dallas Mavericks come to town to play at the Verizon Center. The Wizards are 7-2 on the season and looking to continue their ride to the top of the Eastern Conference. They'll have to be ready to play tough ball though, as Dallas has proven to be resilient beyond the definition of the word.The Wizards have always been a run and gun team but they've never had the talent to do it effectively. This is no longer the case. Bradley Beal, who has been injured, provides John wall with the perfect running mate. In his place Garret Temple and Paul Pierce have stepped it up.

Away - Dallas Mavericks
Last away matches - W-W-L-W-L-W

The Dallas Mavericks are back and in a big way. Right now the Mavs, lead by Dirk Nowitzki, are 8-3 on the year and 3rd in the Southwest. Their potent scoring has brought them to the top of the league in terms of scoring per game. This boost in scoring potency has been provided by fresh free agent signign Chandler Parsons and a resurgent Devin Harris. Along with Monta Ellis the Mavericks have been able to routinely outgun their opponents, despite allowing almost 100PPG.

Brooklyn Nets vs Milwaukee Bucks

Home - Brooklyn Nets
Last away matches - L-L-L-W-L-L

The Nets, on the other hand, seem to have their work cut out of them as they have stumbled out of the gate to 4-6 with team owner Pohkorov indicating that he wants to sell his overpaid team after dipping way into the luxury tax.The Nets have tried to switch up their roster a bit, to no avail, as it is still very top heavy, though the international standouts Bogdanovic and Teletovic might have carved their way into the upper echelon.

Away - Milwaukee Bucks
Last away matches - W-L-L-W-L-L

Jason Kidd goes back to his coaching beginnings as the Bucks face the Nets in a battle of potentially playoff bound teams. The Bucks have surprised to start, at 6-5, with a defense that has allowed just 94.5 points per game, good 5th in the entire NBA and 2nd in the East. Unfortunately, the Bucks offense has not kept up, scoring only 94.1 points per game, good for 4th worst in the NBA, which also leaves them with a negative point differential.Head Coach Jason Kidd thinks the Bucks have the players to be able to sneak into the eastern playoffs, led by a balanced attack with 4 players scoring between 9 and 11 points per game, including 2 bench players (Mayo and Giannis).

Detroit Pistons vs Phoenix Suns

Home - Detroit Pistons
Last away matches - L-W-L-L-L-L

The Detroit Pistons have lost five of their last six games and are almost the opposite of the Suns. The Pistons can’t put the ball in the hoop, as they’re averaging 93 points on 41.6 percent shooting. The Pistons have topped 100 points just once this season and have lost seven of their last 10 games when not hitting triple digits. Brandon Jennings is averaging 16.4 points and six assists, while Greg Monroe averages 15.6 points and 10.3 rebounds. While Andre Drummond has grabbed double-digit rebounds in seven of his last eight games, he’s just 11-27 from the field in his last three games. The Pistons need more from their big man if they’re going to turn things around this season. Defensively, the Pistons are allowing 97.7 points on 44.3 percent shooting.

Away - Phoenix Suns
Last away matches - W-L-W-L-W-L

The Phoenix Suns are looking for some consistency after splitting their last four games. The Suns are a high powered offensive team that’s averaging 105.3 points on 44.8 percent shooting from the field. The Suns have won eight of their last 11 games when scoring 100 or more points. Goran Dragic leads Phoenix with 15.6 points on 47.5 percent shooting and Isaiah Thomas averages 15.6 points and 4.3 assists. Markieff Morris is coming off a 30-point performance and Eric Bledsoe has 17 assists in his last two games. The issue for the Suns is that their defense is sloppy, allowing 105.8 points on 45.9 percent shooting. It’s hard to imagine the Suns being a playoff team in the West if they continue to take plays off on the defensive side.

Miami Heat vs LA Clippers

Miami Heat

Deng is not expected to play on Thursday but was capably replaced by Danny Granger and James Ennis on Monday, when the two combined for 14 points and eight rebounds. Mario Chalmers, who moved to the bench at the beginning of the season with Norris Cole taking over at the point, has been filling in for Wade and poured in a team-high 22 points against the Nets. Chalmers is averaging 21 points and seven assists in three games with Wade on the shelf. Wade has missed the last three games and was limited in practice on Wednesday as Miami takes the conservative path with its 33-year-old star. The Heat did not need Wade or Luol Deng (wrist) in a 95-83 win at Brooklyn on Monday which snapped a three-game slide. Los Angeles should not be dealing with much fatigue despite the back-to-back as no one played more than 30 minutes in a 114-90 rout of the Magic, highlighted by a 12-of-21 effort from 3-point range.

LA Clippers

Los Angeles got a big boost from its bench on Wednesday as Jamal Crawford, Jordan Farmar and Spencer Hawes combined for 45 points and went 7-of-9 from 3-point range. Crawford, who went 8-of-12 en route to a team-high 22 points against Orlando, is 18-of-29 over the last two games after falling into a 5-of-20 funk over the previous two contests and shooting better than 50 percent just once in the first eight games. Los Angeles has failed to reach 90 points in its last two losses while averaging 113.3 points in the last three wins.

Sacramento Kings vs Chicago Bulls

Sacramento Kings

The Sacramento Kings are playing good ball this season, as the Kings are currently 6-5 on the season. That might not be a great record for some teams, but the Kings have been down for awhile, and staying in the black and in the playoff hunt has to be exciting for Sacramento fans. The Kings are getting their wins on the boards as Sacramento is the third ranked team in the league right now in rebound average. Sacramento has struggled as of late however, dropping four out of their last five, with their last outing resulting in a loss to the Pelicans at home on Tuesday night. This is their last home game before a four game road stretch, so getting a win at home against Chicago would be a big boost to them.

Chicago Bulls

The Chicago Bulls are sitting at 8-3 right now, and the Bulls are in first place in the Central. Chicago is in the top half of the league in nearly all major statistical categories, and that balance is tough for opposing teams to overcome. Chicago has won three out of their last four heading into this meeting with the Kings, including a win last time out, where the Bulls upended the Clippers 105-89 on Monday night. The Kings can be a physical team to deal with, so the extra couple of days rest for Chicago will come in handy here.

Charlotte Hornets vs Orlando Magic

Home - Charlotte Hornets
Last away matches - L-L-W-L-L-L

Charlotte has successfully rebranded their team as the Hornets, drawing in a lot of fan support. The team has gone 4-8 so far, which places them last in their division. They have played better at home, setting a 3-2 pace along the way. The Hornets have a talented set of teammates, who will be putting the Magic to the test. Al Jefferson, Lance Stephenson and Kemba Walker have collaborated effectively to start the season.

Away - Orlando Magic
Last away matches - W-L-W-L-L-W

The Orlando Magic are finding it difficult to compete in the opening stages of this season. They are 5-8 and have been dealt some stinging losses. This includes a 114-90 blowout against the Los Angeles Clippers. They need to get things together if they want to post a winning record by the end of the year. Their next game will be up against the Hornets, who have been lackluster as well.Orlando has put together a respectable team, with core players that will be helping as the season progresses. Channing Frye has been an important asset for the team. His 10.3 points and 5.8 rebounds have helped the Magic in a lot of ways. Luke Ridnour was an important acquisition as well, since he is leading the team on offense.

Philadelphia 76ers vs Phoenix suns

Home - Philadelphia 76ers
Last away matches - L-L-L-L-L-L

The Philadelphia 76ers continue to stink up the joint and may not win a single game for a very long time. On the season, the 76ers are averaging 88.6 points on 40.2 percent shooting and are allowing 105 points on 46.7 percent shooting. The 76ers have topped 100 points just once this season and have lost 32 straight games when that’s the case. Tony Wroten leads Philadelphia with 19.3 points on 42 percent shooting and Michael Carter-Williams is averaging 14.8 points and six rebounds. Besides those two players, the 76ers haven’t had much to be happy about this season. However, rookie K.J. McDaniels has shown promise at both ends of the floor and has scored eight or more points in four of his last five games. Still, it’ll continue to be a long season for the 76ers.

Away - Phoenix suns
Last away matches - W-W-L-W-L-W

The Phoenix Suns have won four of their last six games and will play their fourth straight road game. The Suns offense continues to carry the way, as they’re averaging 103.8 points on 45.1 percent shooting and are 5-2 this season when topping 100 points. Goran Dragic leads the Suns with 15.2 points on 48 percent shooting and Markieff Morris is averaging 14.8 points and 6.2 rebounds. Isaiah Thomas is shooting 40.5 percent from the field and Eric Bledsoe is 11-23 from the field in his last two games. Defensively, the Phoenix Suns are allowing 104.2 points on 45.2 percent shooting, an area that has killed them all season long. The Suns must improve defensively if they’re going to be a playoff team, but there’s been no signs of turning it around lately.

The Atlanta Hawks have won four of their last six games and have pulled within a .500 record. The Hawks are averaging 102.6 points on 46.6 percent shooting and are 4-3 this season when topping 100 points. Paul Millsap leads Atlanta with 18 points on 47.6 percent shooting and Jeff Teague is averaging 15.8 points and seven assists. Al Horford is 13-18 from the field in his last two games and Kyle Korver is 6-10 from downtown in his last two contests. Defensively, the Atlanta Hawks are allowing 103.9 points on 47.2 percent shooting. The lack of defensive effort has cost the Hawks, especially in their last two games where they’ve allowed a combined 241 points. DeMarre Carroll is questionable for this game with a groin injury.

Away - Detroit Pistons
Last away matches - L-W-L-L-L-L

The Detroit Pistons have lost six of their last seven games and continue to stink up the joint on the offensive end. The Pistons are averaging 92.4 points on 41.3 percent shooting and have topped 100 points just once all season long. Brandon Jennings leads the Pistons with 16.6 points and 6.1 assists, and Greg Monroe is averaging 15.8 points and 10.5 rebounds. Josh Smith is 10-25 from the field in his last three games and Andre Drummond has grabbed double-digit rebounds in his last four games. However, Drummond is one of Detroit’s top players and needs to be more of a scoring threat if the Pistons are ever going to breakout of this horrible slump. Defensively, the Detroit Pistons are allowing 96.9 points on 44.7 percent shooting.

Toronto Raptors vs Milwaukee Bucks

Home - Toronto Raptors
Last away matches - W-L-W-W-W-W

The Toronto Raptors have won seven of their last eight games and are playing extremely well at both ends of the court. Overall, the Raptors are averaging 105.1 points on 45.1 percent shooting and are allowing 96 points on 46 percent shooting. The Raptors are 6-0 this season when holding their opponent under 100 points. DeMar DeRozan leads Toronto with 21.2 points on 41.8 percent shooting and Kyle Lowry is averaging 18.3 points and 5.9 assists. Terrence Ross is 8-19 from the field in his last two games and Jonas Valanciunas has 27 points and 19 rebounds in his last two contests. Right now, the Toronto Raptors look like the best team in the East and will likely only get better as this team continues to jell together.

Away - Milwaukee Bucks
Last away matches - W-W-L-L-W-L

The Milwaukee Bucks have all of a sudden won five of their last six games and looking like that surprise team in the East. The Bucks are getting the job done on the defensive side, holding teams to 96.4 points on 43.5 percent shooting. The Milwaukee Bucks are 5-2 this season when holding a team under 100 points. Offensively, Milwaukee is averaging 96.4 points on 44.7 percent shooting. Brandon Knight leads the way with 17.9 points per game on 42.2 percent shooting, and Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 12.3 points and 6.1 rebounds. O.J. Mayo is 10-23 from the field in his last two games and rookie Jabari Parker has 48 points and 18 rebounds in his last three contests. The Bucks are looking sharp and are likely hungry for a statement win. Larry Sanders is probable despite a thigh injury.

Minnesota Timberwolves vs San Antonio Spurs

Home - Minnesota Timberwolves
Last away matches - L-L-L-L-W-L

The Minnesota Timberwolves get set to host the Spurs on Friday night. The Timberwolves are struggling this season, as the T-Wolves are just 3-7 on the year. Minnesota has shown the ability to put up points, but the issue is the Timberwolves can’t stop the opposition from doing the same. Minnesota is giving up nearly 109 points per game this season...not good. The Timberwolves have dropped four out of their last five heading into Friday’s meeting with the Spurs, but the Timberwolves did get a win in their last outing, defeating the Knicks on Wednesday night, so maybe there is something to build off of there.

Away - San Antonio Spurs
Last away matches - W-L-W-W-W-L

The San Antonio Spurs are good at basketball. The Spurs are 7-4 right now, but don’t let the losses fool you, the Spurs are probably the most complete team in the league, and really the Spurs are just biding their time until the playoffs. San Antonio has the top ranked defense in the league, allowing just under 92 points per game up to this point. The offense hasn’t always been there, but it will come. The tricky part about backing San Antonio is you never really know if they are going to rest their players, or take a night off.

Memphis Grizzlies vs LA Clippers

Home - Memphis Grizzlies
Last away matches - L-L-W-W-W-W

The Memphis Grizzlies have the best record in the NBA at 11-2 and own a perfect 7-0 record thus far on their home court. Memphis lacks a lot of the flash that draws the casual fan into the game but it’s hard to argue with their defensive approach that’s resulted in allowing just 92.5 points per game on average this year. Marc Gasol is a big part of the team’s defensive strength protecting the rim down low, but the 6th year center also leads the team in scoring with 19 points per game and is coming off a 32 point performance in his last outing against the Celtics on Friday night. Adding to the cause down low is PF Zach Randolph who averages 16.5 points and 12 rebounds per game; the Grizzlies definitely have the personnel to match the Clippers’ formidable paint presence and we should see some great one-on-one battles here. Mike Conley is one of the better defensive point guards in the league and will have a better chance than most perhaps of slowing down Chris Paul, but really Memphis would like to be able to count of the assistance of Tony Allen, who has missed the last two games with the stomach virus that proliferated through the Grizzlies locker room this past week.

Away - LA Clippers
Last away matches - W-W-L-W-L-L

The Los Angeles Clippers are 7-4 to start the year which includes a 3-1 mark on the road, although the road wins came against Lakers, Magic and Heat (none of whom are above .500). Blake Griffin is predictably leading the charge for LA averaging 23 points per game although his rebounding is down with just seven per game thus far. Of course DeAndre Jordan is still averaging 12.2 rebounds per game as the duo represents one of the more difficult tandems down low to guard in the entire league. Chris Paul is averaging 18 points and ten assists per game and looks to be in form shooting the basketball with a 50.3% mark from the field. The Clippers are struggling with the three point shot though as Jamal Crawford and JJ Reddick are both below 35% from behind the arc. The Clippers can score the basketball with a talented roster but the defense is pretty pedestrian ranking 18th in the league in points allowed while conceding 100.6 points per game.

Boston Celtics vs Portland Trail Blazers

Home - Boston Celtics
Last away matches - L-W-W-L-L-W

The Boston Celtics are 4-7 entering this contest and the obvious shortfall of this team has been a porous defense that concedes 108.4 points per game. That deficiency was in full effect on Friday night as the Celtics fell 117-100 to a Memphis team that’s not typically known for scoring 117 points against any opponent – the Celtics could have their hands full here against another Western conference opponent. Scoring the ball hasn’t been a huge issue for Boston as Rajon Rondo averages 11 assists per game to get the offense involved, and Jeff Green (18.4 ppg) and Jared Sullinger (15.7 ppg) have been consistent producers. The Celtics still lack much identity though as a young team with a young head coach with Brad Stevens in just his second year in the NBA. I think it’s fair to expect some exciting offensive output from this team which could very well translate into wins against average teams in the East, but Boston didn’t instill much confidence with their performance against the Grizzlies on Friday.

Away - Portland Trail Blazers
Last away matches - W-L-L-W-L-W

The Portland Trail Blazers are off to an impressive 9-3 start although they’ve only played thrice on the road with a mark of 1-2. Both of the losses did come against solid Western conference teams in the Kings and Clippers though, so we probably shouldn’t expect a stumble on the road here against a Celtics team that simply lacks the same level of personnel quality. LaMarcus Aldridge is performing at a high level with 21.4 points and 8.1 rebounds per game and Damian Lillard is averaging 21 points, seven assists and six rebounds as the two all-stars pace the Portland attack. Wesley Matthews and Robin Lopez have been solid complements to Aldridge and Lillard but the piece that’s been missing of late has been Nicholas Batum, who has been recovering from a knee injury. The Blazers rank 6th in the league in both points scored and points allowed, averaging 104.4 points while conceding 95.2 as one of the more balanced teams in the NBA.

Oklahoma City Thunder vs Golden State Warriors

Home - Oklahoma City Thunder
Last away matches - L-L-W-L-L-L

The Oklahoma City Thunder are in danger of falling off the map completely at 3-11 on the year in a loaded Western conference. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook being out of action has predictably crippled the team, and with the performance thus far don’t expect any rush to return or log heavy minutes for either player. The Thunder rank 29th in the league while scoring just 90 points per game, but even their seventh ranked defense that gives up just 95 points on the other end can’t compensate for such a glaring deficiency. The Thunder have lost five games in a row entering this contest, and only five players on the 13-man roster have played in every game this season. Serge Ibaka and Reggie Jackson are both playing well, but the Thunder really need someone like Anthony Morrow to start contributing more offensively to stay competitive.

Away - Golden State Warriors
Last away matches - W-L-W-W-W-L

The Golden State Warriors are 9-2 to start the year and own an impressive 4-1 mark on the road which includes quality wins over the Kings, Blazers and Rockets. First-year head coach Steve Kerr was given the reigns of a playoff-caliber team and hasn’t don’t anything as of yet to compromise that as the Warriors are shooting 50% as a team on the year to overwhelm opponents. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are each averaging 23 points per game and a combined six three pointers made per game in one of the best shooting backcourts in the league. The Warriors are actually a pretty strong defensive team as well with center Andrew Bogut healthy; the seven foot Australian is averaging ten rebounds per game in addition to 1.7 blocks per game. This year’s team is less reliant on Andre Iguodala who has been relegated to a bench role and David Lee has been out with a hamstring injury, but Draymond Green and Harrison Barnes appear to be thriving with increased minutes as the Warriors have found success thus far with their young roster.

LA Lakers vs Denver Nuggets

Home - LA Lakers
Last away matches - L-W-W-L-L-L

The Los Angeles Lakers have won two of their last three games and are also playing better since the return of Nick Young. On the season, the Lakers are averaging 102.6 points on 44.6 percent shooting and are allowing 112.5 points on 49.6 percent shooting. Kobe Bryant leads the Lakers with 26.7 points on 37.8 percent shooting and Jordan Hill is averaging 14.2 points and 9.7 rebounds. Carlos Boozer is grabbing 6.5 rebounds and Jeremy Lin is dishing out a team-high 4.8 assists. Young is8-22 from the field in his last two games. The Los Angeles Lakers defense has to improve if they’re going to start winning but the offense is a lot more efficient now that they have an extra scorer on the court with the return of Young.

Away - Denver Nuggets
Last away matches - W-L-W-L-L-L

The Denver Nuggets have caught fire lately, winning four of their last five games and playing like a team that wants to be in the playoff convo. On the season, the Nuggets are averaging 103.2 points on 44.1 percent shooting and allowing 105.7 points on 45.5 percent shooting. However, the Nuggets are allowing just 98 points on 44.4 percent shooting in their last five games. Ty Lawson leads Denver with 16.2 points and 9.1 assists while Arron Afflalo is averaging 13.3 points on 44.4 percent shooting. Kenneth Faried is grabbing 7.5 rebounds per game and Wilson Chandler is shooting 33.9 percent from downtown. Since the return of Lawson, the Nuggets are playing much more balanced ball and seem to have some sort of direction.

Charlotte Hornets vs LA Clippers

Home - Charlotte Hornets
Last away matches - L-L-L-W-L-L

Charlotte has five losses by three points or fewer as its failure to execute late in close games becomes a mounting problem. Both of the team's top offensive players - Jefferson (21 points, 7.4 rebounds) and Kemba Walker (14.6 points, 4.9 assists, 4.8 rebounds) - had shots rim out in the final seconds in Miami. The Hornets are getting good production off the bench from shooting guard Gary Neal (12.7 points), but they miss the presence of forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, who has missed the past six games with a stress reaction in his right foot.

Away - LA Clippers
Last away matches - L-W-W-L-W-L

Los Angeles has been maddeningly inconsistent coming out of the gate - after racing to a 39-15 lead after one quarter Thursday at Miami, the Clippers fell behind early at Memphis and trailed after the first period for the sixth time in their 12 games. It's also concerning that a team that boasts Blake Griffin (22.2 points, 6.8 rebounds) and DeAndre Jordan (8.2 points, 11.4 rebounds) could be manhandled inside as badly as the Clippers were against the Grizzlies. One of the few bright spots in Memphis was point guard Chris Paul (18.3 points, 9.5 assists), who scored a team-high 22 points and stuffed the stat sheet with five rebounds, five assists and four steals.

Philadelphia 76ers vs Portland Trail Blazers

Home - Philadelphia 76ers
Last away matches - L-L-L-L-L-L

The 76ers are young and building on some nice pieces. Michael Carter-Williams is an exciting scorer but he has problems on defense. Nerlns Noel is still learning the NBA game and struggling to adjust to big, physical bodies. Fortunately guys like Tony Wroten and Henry Sims have stepped up to help out with the scoring needs of this young franchise.

Away - Portland Trail Blazers
Last away matches - W-W-L-L-W-L

Portland sets their watch and warrant by the play of their two young superstars: LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard. Lillard is an athletic point guard that can drive and score in the vein of Derrick Rose and Russel Westbrook. Aldridge is a stretch 4 that excels on the pick and roll. Helping out these two studs will be Robin Lopez and Wesley Matthews, two dynamic defensive oriented hustle players. Portland will try to run the court before Philly can get into their sets.

Toronto Raptors vs Phoenix Suns

Home - Toronto Raptors
Last away matches - W-W-L-W-W-W

Toronto is enjoying the best 13-game start in franchise history and has better depth than in the past with the addition of veteran combo guard Louis Williams. The 28-year old is averaging 13.4 points off the bench and went for a career-high 36 against Cleveland, but it was his defense that drew raves from Casey. "He had a reputation of being a scorer,” Casey told reporters, “but now he's doing a much better job defensively for us, which allows him to stay in and guard guys like (Cavaliers guards Dion) Waiters and (Kyrie) Irving and people like that."

Away - Phoenix Suns
Last away matches - W-W-W-W-L-W

Phoenix edged past Boston and Detroit by a combined six points before opening up the offense in wins over the Philadelphia 76ers and Indiana Pacers. The Raptors knocked off an assumed East contender on Saturday when they rallied from a big first-quarter deficit for a 110-93 victory over LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. “We knew that train was going to come out of the gate really roaring and they did and we didn't give in,” Toronto coach Dwane Casey told reporters of the win. “We sustained our focus and our defensive disposition and just kept on playing.”Phoenix guard Gerald Green is counted on for quick points off the bench and he went 5-of-5 from the floor in the win over the 76ers before scoring a team-high 23 points in the win at the Pacers. "(Coach) Jeff (Hornacek) lets me go," Green told reporters of the freedom he gets in Hornacek’s offense. "He takes me out of that bird cage." Green and fellow reserve Isaiah Thomas (team-leading 15.4 points) are two of six Suns players averaging double figures in scoring.

Washington Wizards vs Atlanta Hawks

Home - Washington Wizards
Last away matches - W-W-L-W-W-L

Washington Wizards have started the season 9-3 and will be looking for their sixth win in seven games after taking down the Bucks by 111-100 on Saturday. Paul Pierce led the scoring with 25 points while John Wall added 19 points and nine assists as the Wizards came back from a 15-point deficit in the first half to beat the Bucks. The Wizards were always favorites to win this one, but the Bucks have been one of the better teams to start the season and the Wizards had just beaten the Cavaliers just the night before, so there was always a chance of a letdown performance. Unfortunately for the Wizards, Nene left the game after just six minutes with plantar fascia, leaving his status up in the air for tonight's game.

Away - Atlanta Hawks
Last away matches - L-W-L-L-L-W

Atlanta Hawks were able to arrest a two-game skid with a 99-89 win over the Pistons on Friday. Jeff Teague scored a season-high 28 points and Paul Millsap had 15 points and 12 rebounds, as the Hawks won despite blowing an early 19-point lead. As a team, the Hawks had one of their best defensive outings, holding the Pistons to just 37.3 percent shooting from the field and four of 21 from the three point line which is one area they Hawks will be needing to improve on the most, considering they are ranked 25th in the league in points allowed with 102.5 ppg. With the win, Atlanta improved to 6-5 overall and 5-1 at home.In ATS trends, the Hawks are 1-7 ATS in their last eight games following a ATS win and 0-4 ATS in their last four games against a team above .600, while the Wizards are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games following a win of more than 10 points and 1-4 ATS in their last five home games.

Miami Heat vs Golden State Warriors

Home - Miami Heat
Last away matches - W-W-L-W-W-L

Miami Heat have had to play their last six games without Dwyane Wade but have actually gone on a bit of a roll lately, winning three of their last four including a 94-93 home win over the Hornets on Sunday. Chris Bosh had his usual outing of 20 points and 10 rebounds, while Mario Chalmers continued his strong run with 20 points and 10 assists, but the Heat needed yet another player to step up and Luol Deng was able to answer the call with a season-high 26 points on 10 of 14 shooting. Already without Wade (left hamstring) and Norris Cole (dislocated finger), the Heat will now be without Chris Andersen who left the game in the first quarter with a right ankle sprain.

Away - Golden State Warriors
Last away matches - L-W-L-L-L-W

The Golden State Warriors have been one of the hottest teams to start the season, winning 10 of their first 12 games and going for a sixth straight overall after taking down the gutsy Thunder by 91-86 on Sunday. Klay Thompson had 20 points, while Stephen Curry added 15, but this night was all about the scarcely used Marreese Speights who filled in for Andrew Bogut and exploded for a season-high 28 points in just 25 minutes off the bench. The Warriors have been blowing teams away with hot shooting from their dynamic backcourt, so it was good to win an ugly game where both teams shot below 36 percent from the field. Unfortunately, Bogut left the game after just eight minutes in the first quarter with a right orbital contusion and is not likely to suit up for tonight's game.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Detroit Pistons

Home - Milwaukee Bucks
Last away matches - L-W-W-L-L-W

Milwaukee Bucks have been one of the surprise teams at this early stage of the season, but they've fallen from a healthy stretch of five wins in six games to lose their last two straight in back to back nights. After getting blown out by 124-82 in Toronto on Friday, the Bucks returned home to face the Wizards and lost by 111-100 despite leading by 15 points in the first half. Brandon Knight led hte way with 27 points, while Giannis Antetokounmpo added 20, but there was just no stopping the playoff-bound Wizards who outscored them by 64-48 in a dominant second half. With the loss, Milwaukee falls to 7-7 overall and 4-2 at home.

Away - Detroit Pistons
Last away matches - L-L-W-L-L-L

The Detroit Pistons have won just three of their first 13 games to start the season and head into Milwaukee fresh off a fourth straight loss after falling to the Hawks on Friday. Josh Smith had 16 points and Andre Drummond added 13 points with 16 rebounds for the Pistons who rallied after trailing 70-51 in the third quarter before losing 99-89. On offense, the Pistons shot just 37.3 percent from the field and four of 21 from the three-point line, but they were just as bad on defense, allowing the Hawks' Jeff Teague to pour in a season-high 28 points. With the loss, Detroit falls to 3-10 on the season and 1-6 on the road.

New Orleans Pelicans vs Sacramento Kings

Home - New Orleans Pelicans
Last away matches - W-L-W-L-L-W

The New Orleans Pelicans have split their last four games and return from a four-game road trip. On the season, the Pelicans are averaging 103.9 points on 46.1 percent shooting and are allowing 100 points on 45.6 percent shooting. Anthony Davis leads the Pelicans with 26.3 points and 11.4 rebounds while Jrue Holiday is averaging 15.3 points on 44 percent shooting. Tyreke Evans is averaging 6.3 assists and Ryan Anderson is shooting 35.7 percent from beyond the arc. The New Orleans Pelicans are a lot like the Kings in the fact they can score at a high percentage but struggle defensively. The Pelicans are 2-4 SU this season when allowing 100 or more points. Omer Asik is questionable for this game with a back injury.

Away - Sacramento Kings
Last away matches - W-L-L-L-W-W

The Sacramento Kings have won three of their last four games and are starting to show their true potential. On the season, the Kings are averaging 103.4 points on 45.1 percent shooting and are allowing 100.8 points on 43.6 percent shooting. DeMarcus Cousins leads the Kings with 23.2 points and 12.3 rebounds while Rudy Gay is averaging 21.1 points on 44.9 percent shooting. Darren Collison is averaging seven assists and Ben McLemore is shooting 41.4 percent from three. The Sacramento Kings have shown they can score and rebound with the best of them but will have to improve their defensive efforts in order to truly take that next step. The Kings have lost four of their last five when allowing 100-plus points. Gay and Collison are questionable for this game.

Home - Denver Nuggets
Last away matches - W-W-L-W-L-L

The Denver Nuggets lost six of their first seven games to start the season but have since won five of their last six and their last four straight after overcoming the Lakers on Sunday. Ty Lawson led the way with 18 points and 16 assists, Wilson Chandler added 19 points while three other players finished in double figures, but this win was all about defense and the Nuggets proved that by holding the Lakers to just 37.1 percent shooting, three of 24 from the three-point line and just two made field goals in the final 8:15 for a 101-94 overtime win on the road. With the win, Denver improves to 6-7 on the season and 3-4 on the road.

Away - Chicago Bulls
Last away matches - W-L-L-W-W-W

The Chicago Bulls have obviously been cautious with Rose for the past couple seasons now, but he is expected to feature tonight for his first back to back appearance since 2013-14. Rose returned from injury last night to post 18 points and five assists in just 25 minutes, while Pau Gasol returned to score 23 points of his own, but the best player for the Bulls was once again Jimmy Butler who led the way with 25 points in 44 minutes. As a team, the Bulls shot a healthy 50 percent from the field and nine of 20 from the three-point line, but they definitely lacked that killer instinct because they had the Jazz down 21 points in the second quarter but had to fight right till the end to escape with the 97-95 win. It was such a big boost for the Bulls to get two of their top players back, but they are still without key players Kirk Hinrich and Taj Gibson.

Jefferson had a streak of three 20-point outings snapped with a 16-point effort against the Clippers but he continues to carry the offensive attack. Walker is averaging 15.3 points, eight rebounds and six assists over the past three games but his season-long struggles from behind the 3-point line continue (28.6). Guard Lance Stephenson has had issues fitting it since joining the club as a free agent and had three points on 1-of-8 shooting against Los Angeles.

Away - Portland Trail Blazers

All-Star power forward LaMarcus Aldridge broke out of a shooting slump by scoring a season-best 33 points on 13-of-20 shooting against Philadelphia. Aldridge had been 13-of-34 over the previous two games before taking advantage of the 76ers and also grabbing 11 rebounds while recording his fifth double-double of the season.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to get their season headed in the right direction after a shaky start. The team lacks execution on the defensive ends and plays selfishly on offense at times. Rookie head coach David Blatt has his work cut out to get this team to start showing some cohesion. Cleveland is currently in third place in the Central Division, two games behind Chicago. On Monday, the Cavaliers handled their business in a 106-74 home victory against the Orlando Magic. Lebron James scored 29 points and dropped 11 dimes in the win. For the season, Cleveland ranks 12th in scoring offense and 19th in scoring defense.

The Wizards feature the young and talented backcourt of John Wall and Bradley Beal. The addition of free agent F Paul Pierce could provide the veteran leadership this franchise needs to take the next step in the postseason. Washington is currently in first place in the Southeast Division, two games ahead of the Atlanta Hawks. Last night, Washington lost at home 106-102 against the Hawks. Wall scored 21 points and handed out 13 assists in the loss. Through 13 games, Washington ranks 18th in scoring offense and 8th in scoring defense.

Philadelphia has been the butt of so many jokes of sports talk shoes, including wondering if they could beat the Kentucky Wildcats this season. The 76ers are playing hard and have been more competitive as of late but still don’t have the necessary pieces needed to win on a nightly basis in the NBA. On Monday, Philadelphia lost 114-104 at home against Portland. Michael Carter-Williams scored 24 points and handed out seven assists in a losing effort.

Last away matches - W-L-W-L-L-L

Atlanta is 11th in the league in scoring as they average 102 PPG. They do this by relying on Jeff Teague and Al Horford to make things happen. Teague is one of the most exciting and athletic guards in the league and he has helped the Hawks maintain a 4th overall ranking in assists per game. Paul Millsap has done most of the work down low, as the big man averages 18 PPG and 8 RPG.The Toronto Raptors are lead by the play of Kyle Lowry from the guard spot. Lowry is a savvy vet with some great moves around the rim. Lowry is great at finding the open man and is an integral part of their franchise.

Point guard Reggie Jackson has pulled yeoman duty with Westbrook out but his shooting percentage has taken a large dip. He is shooting just 34.8 percent over the past five games despite having two 20-point outings during the stretch. Jackson, who is averaging 20.1 points, is shooting 40.5 percent from the field and 25.4 percent from 3-point range – going 2-of-16 from behind the arc during his five-game shooting slump. Westbrook (hand) is nearing a return and Oklahoma City expects to have him available for Friday’s game against the New York Knicks. Also raising optimism is that reigning MVP Kevin Durant (foot) has returned to practice and he could return within the next few weeks. Oklahoma City owns the worst record in the Western Conference and the Jazz are still adjusting to the system of first-year coach Quin Snyder.

Away - Utah Jazz
Last away matches - L-L-W-L-L-W

Point guard Trey Burke has put together strong back-to-back games and is averaging 19 points on 16-of-26 shooting during the stretch. Burke’s slow start hindered Utah’s ability to find success and Snyder is pleased to see the second-year player find a groove. “I know he’s got a lot of guts and can make shots and he’s a big-time player,” Snyder told reporters. “But for us to be really good we’ve got to be good on the point of the ball.”

Last away matches - L-L-L-L-L-L

The Philadelphia 76ers remain winless and haven’t played since Wednesday. On the season, the 76ers are averaging 89.9 points on 41.3 percent shooting and are allowing 105.4 points on 47.5 percent shooting. Tony Wroten leads the 76ers with 17.9 points and 6.3 assists while Michael Carter-Williams is averaging 14.3 points and 5.9 rebounds. Henry Sims is shooting 48.8 percent from the field and Nerlens Noel has grabbed 22 rebounds in his last three games. It goes without saying that the Philadelphia 76ers are by far the worst team in the league, as teams are shooting 49.9 percent from the field in their last five games. With six of the next eight opponents being playoff teams from a year ago, it will be a while before the 76ers get in the win column.

Away - Dallas Mavericks

Dirk Nowitzki leads the Mavs with 19.8 points and 5.6 rebounds while Monta Ellis is averaging 19.1 points and 4.8 assists. Chandler Parsons is shooting 31.9 percent from beyond the arc and Tyson Chandler is grabbing 11.3 rebounds per game. The Dallas Mavericks are the best offensive team in the league and are 12-2 SU this season when scoring 100-plus points.

The Utah Jazz had a couple nice wins earlier in the season, but have since lost eight of their last 10 and their last four straight. On Wednesday, the Jazz had a nice opportunity to snag a win against the severely shorthanded Thunder, but instead got completely routed by 97-82. All five Jazz starters finished in double digits in scoring with Gordon Hayward leading the way with 24 points, but the Thunder were clearly the hungrier and more desperate team in this one and it showed on the defensive end as the Jazz finished with their lowest point total for the season. With the loss, Utah drops to 5-11 overall and 2-7 on the road.

Away - LA Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers started the season winning five of their first nine games but have since gone 5-1 on their current seven-game road trip that finishes tonight at Utah. Last night, the Clippers received a bit of a gift when they learned that the Rockets' Dwight Howard would sit out a fifth straight game and they didn't show any mercy as they recovered from a slow start to the game to rout the Rockets by 102-85. Blake Griffin looked on song, leading the way with a game-high 30 points on 11 of 20 shooting, while Jamal Crawford danced his way to 21 points off the bench. Chris Paul had a quiet night of just 10 points and seven assists but hardly needed to shoot as the Clippers led by 12 at halftime before cruising in the second half. With the win, LA improves to 10-5 overall and 6-2 on the road.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs Indiana Pacers

Cleveland Cavaliers

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been one of the most disappointing teams so far this season, but things may be about to change as they've bounced back from four straight losses with a couple wins on the trot. In the team's last outing on Wednesday, LeBron James was back to his old self, leading the way with 29 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists as the Cavs destroyed the Wizards by 113-87. Kevin Love added 21 points on his 10 shots while Kyrie Irving finished with 18 points of his own as the Cavs shot 51.4 percent from the field while committing just nine turnovers. Defensively, the Cavs remain in the middle of the pack, allowing an average of 99.5 points per game, but they've certainly been looking better on offense lately, sharing the ball and scoring on fast breaks off turnovers.

Indiana Pacers

The Indiana Pacers have been playing well lately despite their long list of injuries, but they received a major boost last night when David West made his season debut and contributed 18 points in just 24 minutes. However, it was actually Rodney Stuckey's game-high 24 points that was key for the Pacers in the 98-83 rout of the Magic last night. With the win, Indiana improved to 7-9 overall and 4-5 at home. In injury news, Roy Hibbert missed his fourth straight game last night with his sprained ankle but is actually a chance to suit up tonight against the Cavaliers.

Phoenix Suns vs Orlando Magic

Home - Phoenix Suns
Last away matches - L-L-W-W-W-W

The Phoenix Suns are once again in the playoff hunt in the West with a record of 10-7 that includes a 5-3 mark on their home court. The Suns are coming off a split in a physically taxing home and home against the Nuggets that saw the team go 1-1 in a couple of high-scoring affairs. Five Suns players average double digits in scoring with Isaiah Thomas (15.5 ppg), Eric Bledsoe (14.7 ppg), Gerald Green (14.6 ppg), Markieff Morris (14.6 ppg), and Goran Dragic (14 ppg) showing off the depth of this Phoenix roster. The Suns lack a dominant rebounder though with Markieff Morris leading the team with 6.2 per game and Miles Plumlee chipping in 5.9 per game from the center position. The Suns are well-coached under Jeff Hornacek from an offensive perspective ranking 5th in the league while scoring 105.4 points per game, but the defense is still a work in progress with a unit that concedes 103.9 points per game. The Suns should have no problem scoring against the Magic but don’t be surprised if the Magic are able to punch right back in this contest.

Away - Orlando Magic
Last away matches - L-L-W-W-L-W

The Orlando Magic are in the midst of a rebuilding year as they sit at 6-12 with a mix of reasons for concern and optimism. The Magic have lost four in a row entering this contest and are just 4-7 away from home on the year as the young team is far from consistent or reliable despite having some decent athletic pieces on the roster. Nikola Vucevic leads the league in double doubles and is averaging 18.7 points, 11.9 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game from the center position. Tobias Harris is also off to a strong start averaging 18.3 points and 8.2 rebounds per game; Harris missed a couple games with a calf injury but appears to be in form over the last two contests since returning. Evan Fournier is averaging 15.5 points per game at shooting guard, but the 22 year old has been cold of late while failing to eclipse 11 points over the last four games. Second year player Victor Oladipo looks to be rounding into form after missing the first nine games of the season, as he now averages 13.4 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game as one of the Magic’s more versatile players. Orlando isn’t particularly adept on either side of the ball in terms of rankings and should have their hands full against a formidable Western conference team like Phoenix.

The Los Angeles Lakers know a few things about playing without their leading scorer, but even with Kobe Bryant back on the court the Lakers couldn't avoid a fourth straight loss as they fell to the Timberwolves by 120-119 on Friday. Wesley Johnson had a nice game of 19 points while Jeremy Lin added 18 points and 11 assists, but with the Lakers down by one with just two seconds left in the game, the ball went to Kobe Bryant who missed the game-winner, his second after missing the one against the Nuggets on Sunday. With the loss, LA drops to 3-13 overall and just 1-8 at home.

The Toronto Raptors have been one of the best teams so far this season, but are now faced with a new challenge as they play their first game without their leading scorer who injured himself in the team's 106-102 loss against the Mavericks on Friday. Kyle Lowry picked up the slack with 25 points, while Amir Johnson added 20 and Louis Williams had 16, but the Raptors just fell painfully short once the Mavs' Monta Ellis got hot in the fourth quarter where he scored 15 of his 30. DeMar DeRozan left the game in the third quarter after he slipped and fell on a drive to the basket and injured his groin which could see him miss around four weeks.

Portland Trail Blazers vs Minnesota Timberwolves

Home - Portland Trail Blazers
Last away matches - W-W-W-W-L-L

The Portland Trailblazers have been one of the best teams so far this season, but they will be looking for a big win after they had their eight-game win streak snapped on Friday against the league-leading Grizzlies. Wesley Matthews led the team with 26 points while LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard scored 19 and 20 points respectively, but the defensive effort wasn't there as the Grizzlies were allowed to shoot 53.6 percent. There was just no stopping the one-two punch of Mike Conley and Marc Gasol who both flirted with triple doubles and the Blazers just couldn't dig themselves out of the hole with threes like they usually do as Matthews sunk a season-high seven, but the rest of the team made just one of 16.

Away - Minnesota Timberwolves
Last away matches - W-L-L-L-L-W

The Minnesota Timberwolves have been just one of the unluckiest teams so far this season when it comes to injuries, but they didn't let that get in the way of beating the lowly Lakers on Friday night. Mo Williams scplred for 25 points and 11 assists while Thaddeus Young added 22 points of his own, but the biggest performance came from the rookie Zach LaVine who poured in 28 points in 11 of 14 shooting off the bench. The Lakers are ranked dead last in points allowed, so it's not that surprising that the Wolves poured on 120 points, but they did lose eight of their nine games before this win, so this was a win that was long overdue.

Asian Handicap
Home - (-12.50)
Away - (+12.50)
Pick - Minnesota Timberwolves (+12.50)
Odds - 1.99
Stakes - 9/10

Philadelphia 76ers vs San Antonio Spurs

Home - Philadelphia 76ers
Last away matches - L-L-L-L-L-L

The Philadelphia 76ers still have yet to win a game but have kept their last two losses to single digits. On the season, the 76ers are averaging 90.8 points on 41.3 percent shooting and are allowing 105.7 points on 47.4 percent shooting. Michael Carter-Williams is averaging 14.7 points and 6.3 rebounds while K.J. McDaniels is scoring 10.2 points on 46.5 percent shooting. Henry Sims is grabbing 5.9 rebounds and Nerlens Noel is 7-14 from the field in his last two games. The Philadelphia 76ers are allowing teams to shoot 48.9 percent from the field in their last five games and now just lost their leading scorer in Tony Wroten to a knee injury. While the 76ers are trying to be more competitive and get in the win column, they just lack the talent at both ends to finish games against even decent teams.

Away - San Antonio Spurs
Last away matches - W-W-W-L-W-W

The San Antonio Spurs have won seven straight games and are coming off a Sunday win over Boston. On the season, the Spurs are averaging 98.7 points on 46.3 percent shooting and are allowing 92.7 points on 43.5 percent shooting. Tony Parker leads the Spurs with 17.8 points and 5.5 assists while Kawhi Leonard is averaging 14.5 points and 7.6 rebounds. Tim Duncan has 16 rebounds in his last two games and Manu Ginobili is shooting 31.9 percent from beyond the arc. The San Antonio Spurs seem to have found their groove after a rocky start and have topped 100 points in their last three games. However, with this being a four-game road trip, you always have to be careful of the Spurs resting some guys around this time.

Asian Handicap
Home - (+13.50)
Away - (-13.50)
Pick - San Antonio Spurs (-13.50)

Utah Jazz vs Denver Nuggets

Home - Utah Jazz
Last away matches - L-L-L-W-L-L

The Utah Jazz are struggling at both ends and have lost five straight games. On the season, the Jazz are averaging 95.6 points on 46.1 percent shooting and are allowing 101.5 points on 47.3 percent shooting. Gordon Hayward leads Utah with 19.2 points and 3.9 assists while Derrick Favors is averaging 15.9 points and 8.6 rebounds. Trey Burke is averaging 5.5 assists per game and Enes Kanter has grabbed 17 rebounds in his last three games. The Utah Jazz are averaging just 91 points per game during their five-game losing streak and shooting just 31.2 percent from beyond the arc. The Jazz have lost 18 of their last 20 games when scoring less than 100 points. The good news for the Jazz is that three of their five wins this season have come at home.

Away - Denver Nuggets
Last away matches - L-W-W-L-W-L

The Denver Nuggets are starting to play like a playoff caliber team, winning six of their last seven games. On the season, the Nuggets are averaging 105.5 points on 44.2 percent shooting and are allowing 105.5 points on 44.7 percent shooting. Ty Lawson leads Denver with 16.3 points and 10 assists while Arron Afflalo is averaging 14.6 points on 45.3 percent shooting. Wilson Chandler is shooting 37.5 percent from beyond the arc and Kenneth Faried has grabbed 23 rebounds in his last three games. The Denver Nuggets are a top five team in points and rebounds but their defense has to drastically improve in order to take that next step. The good news for Denver fans is that the Nuggets are allowing 41.9 percent shooting in their last five games, almost four percent lower than the league average.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs Milwaukee Bucks

Home - Cleveland Cavaliers
Last away matches - L-W-W-L-L-W

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been far from impressive all season, but look to be finally finding their groove after beating the Pacers by 109-97 for their third straight win. Kevin Love led the way with a season-high 28 points, Kyrie Irving added 24 and LeBron James had 19 as the Cavs blew out to an early double digit lead before crusing in the fourth quarter. Sure, the Pacers were without Roy Hibbert, but this was a game they needed to win, especially at home. Despite the win, Cleveland is still only a mediocre 8-7 overall and 5-4 at home.

Away - Milwaukee Bucks
Last away matches - W-W-L-W-W-L

The Milwaukee Bucks have been playing some pretty impressive basketball lately to win six of their last nine overall, but they will be feeling a little uneasy about facing the Cavaliers tonight after getting thrashed by the Rockets by 117-103 on Saturday. Jabari Parker led six players in double figures with 19 points and five assists, while Ersan Ilyasova added 18 off the bench, but the Bucks just fell victim to a special performance from James Harden who poured in 34 points and eight assists. Also, the Bucks did play the night before in a rout of the Pistons, so a matchup with the high-scoring Rockets was always going to be a tough task. Despite the loss, Milwaukee is still a decent 10-8 overall and 5-3 at home.

Asian Handicap
Home - (-10.50)
Away - (+10.50)
Pick - Cleveland Cavaliers (-10.50)

Atlanta Hawks vs Boston Celtics

Home - Atlanta Hawks
Last away matches - W-L-W-L-L-L

The Atlanta Hawks have won four of their last five games and starting to show life defensively. On the season, the Hawks are averaging 103.4 points on 47.3 percent shooting and are allowing 101.5 points on 45.1 percent shooting. Jeff Teague leads Atlanta with 18 points and 7.2 assists while Paul Millsap is averaging 16.7 points and 8.2 rebounds. Kyle Korver is shooting 55.3 percent from beyond the arc and Al Horford has 21 points in his last two games. The Atlanta Hawks defense has been poor all season, but they’re holding teams to just 40.8 percent shooting in their last five games. The Hawks are 7-1 SU this season when holding a team under 100 points. The Hawks have won five of their last seven home games.

Away - Boston Celtics
Last away matches - L-W-W-L-L-W

The Boston Celtics have lost four straight games and starting to get a dose of reality of what the season will be like. On the season, the Celtics are averaging 103.4 points on 46.2 percent shooting and are allowing 107.6 points on 47.1 percent shooting. Jeff Green leads the Celtics with 17.6 points on 43.4 percent shooting and Jared Sullinger is averaging 16 points and 8.4 rebounds. Rajon Rondo is averaging 10.5 assists per game and Avery Bradley has 29 points in his last two games. The Boston Celtics have had little issues scoring this season but their lack of defense has killed them all season long. The Celtics are 2-9 SU this season when allowing 100 or more points, and are allowing teams to shoot 39.6 percent from beyond the arc on the season.

Detroit Pistons vs LA Lakers

Home - Detroit Pistons
Last away matches - L-L-L-W-L-L

The Detroit Pistons have lost eight straight games and have won just two games at home. On the season, the Pistons are averaging 91.9 points on 41.2 percent shooting and are allowing 98.4 points on 48.4 percent shooting. Brandon Jennings leads Detroit with 16.4 points and 5.8 assists while Greg Monroe is averaging 13.8 points and 9.5 rebounds. Andre Drummond is averaging 11.8 rebounds and Josh Smith is shooting 37.7 percent from the field. The Detroit Pistons offense has struggled all year, as they’ve topped 100 points just once all season. What’s crazy is that the Pistons offensive numbers are getting worse, as they’re shooting just 40.9 percent from the field in their last five games. The Pistons remain one of the biggest disappointments this season.

Away - LA Lakers
Last away matches - L-W-W-L-L-L

The Los Angeles Lakers have lost four of their last seven games but are showing more heart on both sides of the ball. On the season, the Lakers are averaging 104.1 points on 44.8 percent shooting and are allowing 112 points on 48.5 percent shooting. Kobe Bryant leads the Lakers with 26.6 points and 4.6 assists while Jordan Hill is averaging 13.5 points and 9.5 rebounds. Nick Young is shooting 39.5 percent from the field and Carlos Boozer has 14 rebounds in his last two games. The Los Angeles Lakers have been playing better basketball since Young returned to the lineup, and they’ve topped 100 points in five of their last eight games. However, the Lakers must improve defensively if more wins are going to take place, as the Lakers are allowing teams to shoot 39 percent from deep.

New York Knicks vs Brooklyn Nets

Home - New York Knicks
Last away matches - L-L-L-L-L-L

The New York Knicks are also in danger of missing the playoffs with four straight losses. On the season, the Knicks are averaging 93.4 points on 44.9 percent shooting and are allowing 99.2 points on 44.8 percent shooting. Carmelo Anthony leads the Knicks with 23.7 points on 47.4 percent shooting and Amar'e Stoudemire is averaging 12.5 points and 7.8 rebounds. Iman Shumpert is the third New York player to average double-digit points and Tim Hardaway Jr. is 1-10 from three in his last two games. The New York Knicks lack of consistency offensively has hurt them all season, as they’re averaging just 87.2 points in their last five games, which is a step backwards. New York better figure something out quickly. J.R. Smith is questionable for this game with an illness.

Away - Brooklyn Nets
Last away matches - W-L-W-L-L-L

The Brooklyn Nets are trying to get back on track and have split their last four games. On the season, the Nets are averaging 98.9 points on 45.4 percent shooting and are allowing 100.4 points on 45.3 percent shooting. Deron Williams leads the Nets with 17.9 points and 6.4 assists while Joe Johnson is averaging 16 points on 44.7 percent shooting. Mirza Teletovic is shooting 33.7 percent from beyond the arc and Brook Lopez has nine rebounds in his last two games. The Brooklyn Nets were supposed to be a better team with the return of Lopez, but really haven’t shown much on either side of the ball. The Nets are shooting just 33.4 percent from deep and are grabbing just 41.3 rebounds per game, which is also at the bottom of the league. These next few games against playoff caliber teams will tell us a lot about the Nets.

Jimmy Butler leads the Bulls with 21.9 points on 49.8 percent shooting and Pau Gasol is averaging 19.4 points and 11 rebounds. Derrick Rose has 35 points in his last two games and Joakim Noah has grabbed 24 rebounds in his last two games. The Chicago Bulls are finally starting to get healthy and show the league what they can do but now have to be more consistent at both ends. The Bulls are still trying to figure things out offensively, as they’re shooting 43.4 percent from the field in their last five games. Taj Gibson is doubtful for this game with an ankle injury.

Away - Dallas Mavericks
Last away matches - W-W-L-W-W-W

The Dallas Mavericks have won three straight games and will play their third straight road game. On the season, the Mavericks are averaging 109.1 points on 48 percent shooting and are allowing 100.1 points on 44.6 percent shooting.

Chandler Parsons is shooting 32.4 percent from beyond the arc and Tyson Chandler is averaging 11.3 rebounds per game. The Dallas Mavericks remain the best offensive team in the league and are 13-2 SU this season when scoring 100-plus points. In order to truly take that next step as a championship contender, the Mavs must improve their defensive efforts, as they’re allowing 40.3 percent shooting from deep in their last five games.

Home - Boston Celtics
Last away matches - L-L-W-W-L-L

The Boston Celtics have lost five straight games and look for their first home win in nearly a month. On the season, the Celtics are averaging 103.4 points on 46.2 percent shooting and are allowing 107.6 points on 47.1 percent shooting. Jeff Green leads Boston with 17.6 points and 4.8 rebounds while Jared Sullinger is averaging 16 points and 8.4 rebounds. Rajon Rondo is dishing out 10.5 assists and Avery Bradley has 29 points in his last two games. The Boston Celtics are allowing teams to shoot 38.4 percent from downtown in their last five games and have lost seven straight games when allowing 100-plus points. The Celtics have shown they can score and shoot a high percentage but their lack of defense has killed any early momentum and has resulted in this long losing streak.

Away - Detroit Pistons
Last away matches - L-L-L-W-L-L

The Detroit Pistons have lost nine straight games and are clearly one of the biggest disappointments in the league. On the season, the Pistons are averaging 91.9 points on 41.2 percent shooting and are allowing 98.4 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Brandon Jennings leads Detroit with 16.4 points and 5.8 assists while Greg Monroe is averaging 13.8 points and 9.5 rebounds. Josh Smith is shooting 37.7 percent from the field and Andre Drummond has 20 rebounds in his last two games. The Detroit Pistons offense is shooting just 40.9 percent from the field in their last five games and have topped 100 points just once this season. The Pistons lack of offense is the reason for their struggles, as they’ve now lost 20 of their last 23 games when scoring less than 100 points.

Brooklyn Nets vs San Antonio Spurs

Home - Brooklyn Nets
Last away matches - W-W-L-W-L-L

The Nets have won two of their last three games after stemming a late rally to down the New York Knicks 98-93 at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday. Brooklyn still hasn't beaten a team with a winning record this season and has been held to below 100 points in eight of its last nine games. However, the Nets are inching closer to the .500 mark as they look to begin a three-game homestand by beating the Spurs for the second consecutive time at Barclays Center.Joe Johnson scored 19 of his 22 points in the second half and added eight rebounds and six assists in the win over the Knicks. Brook Lopez collected a team-high 23 points on Tuesday and has finished in double figures in five of his last six games. Kevin Garnett moved into sole possession of sixth place on the NBA all-time games played list (1,392) and needs one more steal to become the 16th player in league history to record 1,800.

Away - San Antonio Spurs
Last away matches - W-W-W-W-L-W

The San Antonio Spurs look to win their ninth game in a row when they visit the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday. The Spurs have won 11 of their last 12 games and beat the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday for their 16th consecutive regular season win over an Eastern Conference opponent. San Antonio is firing on all cylinders and hopes to beat the Nets for the eighth time in nine tries without peeking ahead to the mouthwatering matchup with the Southwest Division-leading Memphis Grizzlies on Dec. 5.Kawhi Leonard matched his career high with 26 points and Aron Baynes scored a personal-best 15 points in the win over the 76ers. Tony Parker (hip) and Tim Duncan (rest) sat out Monday's game, but both players are expected to be available against the Nets. Danny Green was limited to five points on 1-of-9 shooting against Philadelphia after tallying a team-high 18 in the victory over the Boston Celtics on Nov. 30.
