Miami Heat vs Atlanta Hawks

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

Dwyane Wade pointed out Miami's defensive deficiencies after the team's latest loss, but the Heat haven't exactly been lighting up the scoreboard of late either, failing to reach the century mark since facing the Atlanta Hawks nearly three weeks ago.The Heat may need to top triple digits to keep up with the surging Hawks in Wednesday night's rematch, and will almost certainly need a better defensive performance than the last meeting.Miami (9-Cool had perhaps its finest defensive showing of the season in an 86-79 win in New York on Sunday but followed with a 107-86 drubbing in Washington the next day. The Heat let the Southeast Division-leading Wizards shoot 54.2 percent and go 10 of 19 from 3-point range, while they missed 20 of 22 attempts from beyond the arc.

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

The Hawks have won three in a row over the Heat but all those games were in Atlanta.

Thaddeus Young is averaging 13.4 points and 4.5 rebounds while Andrew Wiggins is averaging 11.8 points on 39.9 percent shooting. Mo Williams is dishing out 6.7 assists per game and Gorgui Dieng has scored 18 points in his last two games. The Minnesota Timberwolves are still having no trouble scoring even with the injuries to some of their key players, but their defense is preventing them from winning games. The Timberwolves have allowed more than 100 points in six straight games and are allowing 49.4 percent shooting in their last five.

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

The Philadelphia 76ers have yet to win a game and are on pace to being one of the worst teams ever.

Michael Carter-Williams is averaging 15.6 points and 6.8 rebounds while Alexey Shved is averaging 10.4 points on 39.8 percent shooting. K.J. McDaniels has grabbed 22 rebounds in his last two games and Henry Sims is averaging 5.9 rebounds per game. The Philadelphia 76ers are just brutal at both ends of the floor and aren’t getting any better, as they’re allowing teams to shoot 47.2 percent from the field in their last five games. Nerlens Noel is questionable with a hip injury.

New York Knicks vs Cleveland Cavaliers

Home - New York Knicks
Away - Cleveland Cavaliers

The New York Knicks have lost five straight and are in serious danger of missing the playoffs. On the season, the Knicks are averaging 93.4 points on 44.8 percent shooting and are allowing 99.1 points on 44.8 percent shooting. Carmelo Anthony leads the Knicks with 23.5 points and 6.1 rebounds while Amar'e Stoudemire is averaging 12.8 points and 7.9 rebounds. Jose Calderon is shooting 51.7 percent from beyond the arc and Iman Shumpert has scored 15 points in his last two games. The New York Knicks main struggles all year have been on the offensive side, but the numbers have gotten even worse, as they’re shooting just 41 percent from the field in their last five games. J.R. Smith is probable for this matchup despite an illness.

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

The Cleveland Cavaliers are starting to show signs of life, as they’ve won four straight games. On the season, the Cavaliers are averaging 103.8 points on 43.6 percent shooting and are allowing 99.9 points on 46.4 percent shooting.

Portland Trail Blazers vs Indiana Pacers

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

The showing against Denver continued a string of good performances for Aldridge, who has five double-doubles over the last six games. “His stroke was going really well and I think the fact we had so many 3s the last time and they were doubling him, they wanted to play him straight this time,” coach Terry Stotts told reporters. “So he carried us, not only with his jump shot but then late going to the post, getting to the free-throw line.” Aldridge is averaging 24.3 points and 12.5 rebounds during the hot stretch. The Portland Trail Blazers seek their 12th victory in 13 games when they host the Indiana Pacers on Thursday. Portland had to work to get past Denver on Tuesday as center Robin Lopez scored the tiebreaking basket with 1.3 seconds left in a 105-103 win. Indiana has been battling through injuries and that made dealing with speedy Phoenix a chore as the Pacers went down to a 116-99 defeat on Tuesday.

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

Indiana is 0-2 on a four-game road trip after the loss to the Suns but did get center Roy Hibbert (ankle) back after a four-game absence. Portland star LaMarcus Aldridge scored a season-best 39 points in the Trail Blazers’ win over the Nuggets but it was what he did in the final seconds that was the stunner – passing the ball to Lopez for the winning hoop. “Everybody in the arena thought I would shoot it if I touched it,” Aldridge told reporters. Hibbert came back strong and had 15 points and 10 rebounds for his fifth double-double of the season. He also recorded one block – the 903rd of his career – to move within one of fourth-place Dale Davis in franchise history. Hibbert is averaging 13.2 points and eight rebounds but has only scored in double figures in back-to-back games on two occasions and has yet to have consecutive double-digit outings on the boards.

Asian Handicap
Home - (-9.00)
Away - (+9.00)
Pick - Portland Trail Blazers (-9.00)

Golden State Warriors vs New Orleans Pelicans

Home - Golden State Warriors
Last away matches - W-W-W-W-W-W

The Golden State Warriors are off to the best start in franchise history and are staring down their longest winning streak ever. The Warriors will try to match the 1971-72 squad for the longest streak in history by taking their 11th when they host the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday. The streak was in jeopardy against the Orlando Magic on Tuesday until Stephen Curry buried a go-ahead 3-pointer in transition in the final seconds. Curry and Klay Thompson scored all the points in a game-ending 14-4 run that helped Golden State overcome a nine-point deficit against the Magic. “(Curry) bailed us out,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr told reporters. “It took a lot of individual brilliance down the stretch to bail us out, but what I told the team was we had to have that because we didn’t play as a team for the rest of the game.” That has not been the norm for Golden State, which leads the NBA in point differential behind an offense and a defense that both rank among the most efficient in the league.

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

The Pelicans snapped a three-game slide and pulled back to .500 with a 112-104 home win over Oklahoma City on Tuesday and are opening up a three-game California road trip with Golden State. “We just have to remind ourselves how it feels to win, and take that into this road trip,” New Orleans star Anthony Davis told reporters. “We’ve just got to be consistent and realize what we do best. We can't try to outscore teams. We’ve got to defend, rebound and run.” The Warriors can defend, rebound and run as well and have held eight of their last 10 opponents under 100 points. Davis put up 25 points and 10 rebounds on Tuesday but was overshadowed by Tyreke Evans, who moved over to the shooting guard spot to make room in the starting lineup for Luke Babbitt and responded with a season-high 30 points on 14-of-24 shooting. “I was in attack mode,” Evans told reporters. “I was in a zone. Once you get in a zone, you feel like no one can stay in front of you.” Evans has scored 18 or more points in three of the last four games.

Philadelphia 76ers vs Oklahoma City Thunder

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

The Philadelphia 76ers are coming off their first win of the season and hope to keep things rolling. On the season, the 76ers are averaging 91.1 points on 41.3 percent shooting and are allowing 104.3 points on 46.5 percent shooting. Michael Carter-Williams is averaging 16 points and 6.1 assists while Alexey Shved is averaging 10.4 points on 39.8 percent shooting. K.J. McDaniels has 43 points in his last three games and Nerlens Noel has five blocks in his last five games. The Philadelphia 76ers aren’t getting the results they’d like, but they’re playing hard and improving defensively, as they’re allowing 44.5 percent shooting from the field and 28.2 percent shooting from deep in their last five games. Shved is questionable for this game with a hip injury.

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

The Oklahoma City Thunder have split their last four games and are as healthy as they’ve been all year. On the season, the Thunder are averaging 91.7 points on 42.3 percent shooting and are allowing 94.2 points on 42.4 percent shooting. Kevin Durant leads the Thunder with 27 points on 50 percent shooting and Russell Westbrook is averaging 23.3 points and 6.3 assists. Reggie Jackson is shooting 42 percent from the field and Serge Ibaka leads OKC with 7.6 rebounds. The Oklahoma City Thunder have been one of the top defensive teams in the league all season and are holding teams to 41.5 percent shooting in their last five games. Now, with Durant back, the Thunder are a complete offensive team and will begin their playoff push starting with this game.

Asian Handicap
Home - (+12.00)
Away - (-12.00)
Pick - Oklahoma City Thunder (-12.00)

Boston Celtics vs LA Lakers

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

The Boston Celtics have lost five of their last six games and are also looking to improve defensively. On the season, the Celtics are averaging 103.8 points on 46 percent shooting and are allowing 107.3 points on 46.6 percent shooting. Jeff Green leads Boston with 19 points on 44 percent shooting and Jared Sullinger is averaging 16.3 points and 8.4 rebounds. Rajon Rondo is averaging 10.9 assists per game and Avery Bradley has 24 points in his last two games. The Boston Celtics are allowing teams to shoot 39.3 percent from beyond the arc on the season and are 3-10 SU this season when allowing 100-plus points. The good news is that the Celtics have improved their defensive numbers recently but are still allowing 105 points per game in their last five contests.

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

The Los Angeles Lakers have split their last four games and will wrap up a three-game road trip. On the season, the Lakers are averaging 103.7 points on 44.6 percent shooting and are allowing 111.1 points on 47.9 percent shooting. Kobe Bryant leads the Lakers with 26 points and 4.9 assists while Jordan Hill is averaging 13.7 points and 9.5 rebounds. Nick Young is shooting 40.7 percent from the field and Carlos Boozer has 15 rebounds in his last two games. The Los Angeles Lakers continue to play improved basketball since the return of Young, but their defense continues to let them down. The Lakers are allowing 109.6 points in their last five games and are 2-12 SU this season when allowing 100-plus points. The schedule only gets harder from here, so the Lakers must take advantage of these games.

Kevin Garnett is grabbing 8.5 rebounds per game and Mirza Teletovic is shooting 35.9 percent from deep. The Brooklyn Nets still have their scoring slumps at times but are holding teams to just 43.4 percent shooting in their last five games. Defense is key, as the Nets are 8-4 SU this season when allowing less than 100 points. Andrei Kirilenko remains questionable for this game with personal issues.

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

The Atlanta Hawks have won four straight games and are clicking offensively. On the season, the Hawks are averaging 104.2 points on 48 percent shooting and are allowing 101.7 points on 45.8 percent shooting.

Five of the Hawks six losses this season have come when they’ve allowing 100-plus points.

Dallas Mavericks vs Phoenix Suns

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

The Dallas Mavericks are taking care of business in early action with a 15-5 record entering this contest behind the NBA’s top scoring offense which averages 110.2 points per game. Dirk Nowitzki has sat out two of the last four games on the second night of back-to-backs so the big German figures to be well-rested and ready to produce in this game. The Mavericks can also rely on the contributions of Monta Ellis, with the ninth year shooting guard averaging 20.7 points and 4.8 assists per game. The Mavericks are riding a five game winning streak into this contest and hold a 7-2 record on their home floor with losses coming in against weaker Eastern foes in the Heat and Pacers. The Mavericks won’t be taking a Western conference team lightly and figure to find ways to score against a Suns team that has shown vulnerability on the defensive end.

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

The Phoenix Suns are carrying over their form from last season into this year as they sit at 11-8 on the season with a 5-4 mark on the road. Part of that success has come over the last month where the Suns have gone 6-3 against Eastern Conference opponents; the Suns open a tough three road game set in four nights here with trips to Houston and the LA Clippers on the horizon. Phoenix ranks 5th in the league in scoring with 105.1 points per game but the defense will be challenged here after allowing 103.1 points per game to rank 25th in the league up until this point. The Suns will hope that Goran Dragic’s strong outings in the past two games will carry over, especially from deep where Gragic is eight for 12. The Suns always have options to score with five players averaging double figures including Eric Bledsoe and Isaiah Thomas in addition to Dragic in the backcourt, but the team’s rebounding could use work with no big man averaging double digit rebounds as Markieff Morris leads the team with 6.4 per game and Miles Plumlee hauls in six per game from the center position.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Miami Heat

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

The Milwaukee Bucks are a young and exciting team that has recently given the Cavaliers and Mavericks all they could handle in their latest two games. Unfortunately both efforts came up just short as the 10-10 Bucks are actually on a three game losing streak. Brandon Knight is having a great season at point guard with 17.9 points, six assists and 4.8 rebounds per game and rookie Jabari Parker is averaging 12.2 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. The Bucks will be weakened here with roster-staple Ersan Ilyasova slated to miss this contest with a nasal fracture and concussion sustained in the team’s loss at Cleveland. The Bucks have the necessary depth to take on a next-man-up mentality though which was evidenced by Khris Middleton’s 21 points last time out in Ilyasova’s absence. Milwaukee is just 5-4 on their home floor this year but all the losses came against respectable teams.

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

The Miami Heat are 9-9 to start the year but really you can pin much of the success and failure the team has seen on the health and production of star guard Dwyane Wade. Wade has missed seven of the team’s 18 games but he’s been producing when playing with 21.2 points, 5.7 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game. The contributions from Chris Bosh have been steadier and more impressive overall though with the big man 21.8 points, 8.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. The Heat have struggled with team rebounding ranking last in the league with just 36.3 per game. Defensively the Heat rank 9th while allowing just 97.8 points per game but that stat can be a little misleading when looking at the team’s change in pace without the transition game which LeBron previously spearheaded. The Heat struggled to score in a 91-84 loss to the Bucks in Miami on November 16th, a game in which Milwaukee dominated in paint points 46-24.

Boston Celtics vs Washington Wizards

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

The Boston Celtics are looking for a season-high third straight victory. On the season, the Celtics are averaging 104.4 points on 46.3 percent shooting and are allowing 106.6 points on 46.3 percent shooting. Jeff Green leads Boston with 19 points and 4.7 rebounds while Jared Sullinger is averaging 16.3 points and 8.7 rebounds. Avery Bradley is shooting 45.4 percent from the field and Rajon Rondo is averaging 11.3 assists per game. The Boston Celtics are one of the better offensive teams in the league but their defense is allowing teams to shoot 39.2 percent from deep and are 3-10 SU this season when allowing 100-plus points. The Celtics will give themselves a chance to win game as long as their defense holds up.

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

The Washington Wizards have won four straight games and will play their first road game on the month. On the season, the Wizards are averaging 100.1 points on 47.1 percent shooting and are allowing 95.6 points on 42.8 percent shooting. John Wall leads Washington with 17.6 points and 9.8 assists while Bradley Beal is averaging 14.7 points on 46.8 percent shooting. Marcin Gortat is grabbing 8.8 rebounds per game and Paul Pierce is shooting 41.1 percent from the field. The Washington Wizards have shown they can compete with anybody on the offensive end, but they’re holding teams to 41.9 percent shooting from the field and 28.2 percent shooting from deep in their last five games. Defense is the key for the Wizards this season, as they’re 11-0 SU when holding opponents under 100 points.

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

The Atlanta Hawks are playing some of their best basketball with wins in five straight. On the season, the Hawks are averaging 103.9 points on 47.7 percent shooting and are allowing 100.2 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Jeff Teague leads Atlanta with 17.8 points and 7.1 assists while Paul Millsap is averaging 16.7 points and eight rebounds. Kyle Korver is shooting 52.8 percent from the field and Al Horford is averaging 6.1 rebounds per game. The Atlanta Hawks, a team that has also had issues defensively, is holding teams to just 89.6 points on 42.5 percent shooting in their last five games. The Hawks have won seven straight games when allowing less than 100 points. Now the question is if the Hawks can continue to play this balanced style of basketball.

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

The Denver Nuggets have split their last six games and will play their third road contest this month. On the season, the Nuggets are averaging 104.4 points on 44.4 percent shooting and are allowing 105.9 points on 45.3 percent shooting. Ty Lawson leads Denver with 16.5 points and 10.3 assists while Arron Afflalo is averaging 14.2 points on 45.6 percent shooting. Kenneth Faried is averaging 6.7 rebounds per game and Wilson Chandler is shooting 43.8 percent from the field. The Denver Nuggets inability to play defense has prevented them from playing consistent, as they’re allowing teams to shoot 37 percent from deep and score 108.4 points in their last five games. The Nuggets are 6-0 SU this season when holding teams under 100 points. Denver is a solid offensive team but needs more balance to really turn the corner.

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

Mario Chalmers is averaging 4.9 assists per game and Shawne Williams is shooting 47.5 percent from the field.

The Heat are known for playing above-average defense, but they’ve lost seven straight when allowing 100-plus points. Luol Deng and Norris Cole are questionable for this game with injuries.

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

Detroit Pistons were looking like favorites to snap a 10-game losing streak with the lowly Sixers visiting last night, but for the second straight game they fell in overtime to make it 11 straight losses in a row. Josh Smith led the way with 23 points while Kyle Singler added 21, but with the game tied at 100-100 with 13 seconds left in the fourth, Brandon Jennings failed to get an open shot and things just went from bad to worse in overtime as the Pistons went zero for 11 from the field to lose by 108-101 in the end. With the loss, Detroit falls to 3-17 overall and 2-9 at home.

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

The Oklahoma City Thunder have been with their full squad for two games now and they were able to make up for their loss against the Pelicans on Tuesday with an easy 103-91 win over the Sixers on Friday. Kevin Durant had a passive game of just 10 points on three of 11 shooting, but other players were able to make up for it with Serge Ibaka added 19 points and Russell Westbrook scoring 27. In a game that the Thunder should have won by more than 20 points, the starters didn't really make any inroads so it was up to the bench players like Reggie Jackson and Jeremy Lamb to come in and take over. The win wasn't as easy as it should have been but the Thunder will take it and improve to 6-13 on the season and 2-8 on the road.

Dallas Mavericks vs Milwaukee Bucks

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

The Dallas Mavericks have been leaning heavily on Monta Ellis this season and stock only seemed to go higher when Dirk Nowitzki was rested on Wednesday night against the Milwaukee Bucks as Ellis scored a team-high 23 points against the Bucks, including a wild, fall-away jumper at the buzzer to lift the Mavs over the Bucks by 107-105. Chandler Parsons added 14 points and Tyson Chandler added 18 points and 20 rebounds, but with the game on the line, there was no question who was taking the last shot. Since that win, the Mavs actually went on to get ambushed by the Suns at home which snapped a five-game win streak, but they're still a healthy 15-6 on the season and 7-3 at home.

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

Bucks, Brandon Knights led the way with 25 points against the Mavs on Wednesday while Khris Middleton added 21 off the bench, but other than another 12 points from OJ Mayo, nobody else finished in double digits in scoring. Since Wednesday, the Bucks went on to crush the Heat by 109-85 on Friday in a more balanced scoring effort as six players finished in double figures, led by Kendall Marshall who made the most of garbage time to score 20 points on seven of eight shooting. With the win, Milwaukee improved to 11-10 on the season and 6-4 at home.

Indiana Pacers vs Atlanta Hawks

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

The Indiana Pacers have lost four straight but are as healthy as they’ve been all year. On the season, the Pacers are averaging 93.5 points on 42.5 percent shooting and are allowing 96.3 points on 45.4 percent shooting. David West leads Indiana with 14.2 points and 6.8 rebounds while Rodney Stuckey is averaging 12.8 points on 41.4 percent shooting. Roy Hibbert is grabbing 7.9 rebounds per game and Donald Sloan is averaging five assists per game. The Indiana Pacers are still trying to figure things out offensively but at least have another scoring option and physical presence with the return of West. However, the Pacers are shooting just 41.5 percent from the field and 27.4 percent from deep in their last five games.

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

The Atlanta Hawks are playing their best ball of the season with six straight wins and will play their third road game of the month. On the season, the Hawks are averaging 103.9 points on 47.7 percent shooting and are allowing 100.2 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Jeff Teague leads Atlanta with 17.8 points and 7.1 assists while Paul Millsap is averaging 16.7 points and eight rebounds. Al Horford is grabbing 6.1 rebounds per game and Kyle Korver is 5-11 from deep in his last two games. The Atlanta Hawks have been one of the better offensive teams in the league but it’s their offense that’s made the difference during this stretch. The Hawks are allowing 42.5 percent shooting in their last five games and have won eight straight games when allowing less than 100 points. The Atlanta Hawks are quietly becoming a contender in the East.

Washington Wizards vs Boston Celtics

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

The Wizards were perhaps a little overconfident about their chances of a fifth straight win after blowing past the Nuggets by 30 points on Friday and it really put them in a hole early on. The Wizards would fall behind by 25 points in the third quarter before rallying back to 94-93 with 1:12 left in the game, but they just couldn't get over the final hurdle as the Celtics closed the game out to win by 101-93. For the Wizards, John Wall led the way with 17 points and 14 assists, while Rasual Butler added a team-high 22 points off the bench.

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

The Celtics, Jeff Green led the way with a game-high 25 points while Marcus Thornton added a rapid-fire 21 points in just 17 minutes off the bench, but it was once again Rajon Rondo who stuffed the stat sheet with a triple double of 13 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists. With the win, Boston has now won three straight to improve to 7-11 on the season and 5-7 at home.

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

The Minnesota Timberwolves have lost five straight games and continue to deal with injuries. On the season, the Timberwolves are averaging 100.2 points on 43.9 percent shooting and are allowing 110.6 points on 50.3 percent shooting. Thaddeus Young is averaging 14 points and 4.4 rebounds while Andrew Wiggins is averaging 11.4 points on 38.5 percent shooting. Shabazz Muhammad has 40 points in his last two games and Corey Brewer is shooting 43.3 percent from the field. The Minnesota Timberwolves are missing a ton of key guys and it really hasn’t helped their defense, which is allowing 111.2 points in their last five games. The Timberwolves have lost 14 of 15 games this season when allowing 100 or more points. Mo Williams is questionable for this game with a back injury.

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

The Golden State Warriors are playing the best basketball of any team, winning 12 straight games. On the season, the Warriors are averaging 107.1 points on 48.2 percent shooting and are allowing 96.2 points on 41.1 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 23.2 points and 7.7 assists while Klay Thompson is averaging 21.2 points on 44.6 percent shooting. Draymond Green is grabbing 7.6 rebounds per game and Marreese Speights is shooting 53.8 percent from the field. The Golden State Warriors have clearly forgotten how to lose games and are playing great basketball at both ends. One thing that the Warriors have improved on is their turnovers, as they’re averaging 16 on the season but are turning it over just 12.6 times in their last five games.

LA Clippers vs Phoenix Suns

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

The Los Angeles Clippers have been on an absolute tear, winning their last seven straight and coming off a 120-100 rout of the Pelicans. The Clippers built an early 18-point lead before seeing that lead disappear by halftime, but they regrouped in the break and dominated th second half 66-46 to win easily. Chris Paul ran the show with 18 points and 16 assists, while Blake Griffin added 30 points on 10 of 15 shooting, but it didn't stop there as JJ Redick added 21 points and Jamal Crawford had 20 to round out the scoring. LA started the season a little shaky but are now looking like they're in mid-season form, but it's still hard to get too excited because it's still early in the season and all LA are doing is beating up on the lesser teams.

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

The Phoenix Suns have lost four of their last seven and are coming off a 100-95 loss against the Rockets on Saturday in a disappointing display after blowing away the Mavericks just the night before. Perhaps fatigue was a factor, because the Suns looked lethargic to start the game and got punished big time, falling behind by 60-41 going into halftime before rallying late. Eric Bledsoe led the way with 23 points while Gerald Green added 16 off the bench, but Markieff Morris shot just two of 14 to finish with four points after scoring 22 points in Friday's win. Isaiah Thomas missed his sixth game with an ankle injury and isn't expected back anytime soon

Cleveland Cavaliers vs Toronto Raptors

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

The Cleveland Cavaliers finally look to be getting into their groove now and it was the Nets who found that out last night in a 110-88 rout in Brooklyn. Kevin Love continued his hot shooting with 19 points while LeBron James added 18, but it was actually Dion Waiters' 26 points off the bench that turned a close game into an easy win for the Cavs. Kyrie Irving had one of his worst games of the season, scoring just seven points on two of 10 shooting but the Cavs hardly needed him after the halftime as they just shut the Nets down defensively and dominated the second half by 60-39. With the win, Cleveland improved to 12-7 overall and 6-3 on the road.

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

The Toronto Raptors have been in some decent form themselves, winning three of their last four including a 112-107 overtime thriller over the Nuggets last night. Kyle Lowry had an off shooting night but led the way with 13 points and 13 assists while Jonas Valanciunas added 18 points on eight of 11 shooting, but you can credit this win to the bench production as Louis Williams and Patrick Patterson scored 26 and 19 points respectively, including a combined eight of 17 from the three-point line. As a team, the Raptors shot a healthy 50.6 percent from the field, which is not that surprising as they are currently ranked second in the league in points with an average of 108.8 ppg.

The Detroit Pistons have lost 12 straight games and at this point would be better off tanking the rest of the way. On the season, the Pistons are averaging 93.1 points on 40.7 percent shooting and are allowing 99.6 points on 45.2 percent shooting. Greg Monroe leads Detroit with 14.3 points and 9.3 rebounds while Brandon Jennings is averaging 14.2 points and 6.2 assists. Josh Smith is shooting 38.1 percent from the field and Andre Drummond is averaging 11.7 rebounds per game. The Detroit Pistons inability to score the basketball has been painful, as they’re shooting just 38.3 percent from the field in their last five games. The Pistons have topped 100 points just three times this season and have shown little signs of turning things around. The schedule for the next couple of weeks also don’t help Detroit.

Away - Portland Trail Blazers

Marc Gasol leads Memphis with 19 points and 8.1 rebounds while Mike Conley is averaging 16.7 points and 6.3 assists. Zach Randolph is grabbing 11 rebounds per game and Courtney Lee is shooting 54.1 percent from the field. The Memphis Grizzlies are known for their elite defensive play, but they’re shooting 51.5 percent from the field in their last five games and are 9-1 SU this season when scoring 100 or more points. The Grizzlies are going to be a tough team to beat if their offense can continue to produce at a high level.

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

The Dallas Mavericks have won six of their last seven games and remain one of the top offensive teams. On the season, the Mavericks are averaging 110.6 points on 48.1 percent shooting and are allowing 102.5 points on 45.7 percent shooting. Monta Ellis leads Dallas with 21.2 points and 4.6 assists while Dirk Nowitzki is averaging 19.2 points and 5.6 rebounds. Chandler Parsons is shooting 42.9 percent from the field and Tyson Chandler is grabbing 11.9 rebounds per game. The Dallas Mavericks are averaging the most points this season and are a red hot 16-3 SU when scoring at least 100 points. The concern for the Mavericks remains their defense that’s allowing teams to shoot 48.9 percent from the field in their last five games. The Mavericks have to be more balanced if they’re going to compete come playoff time.

Andrew Wiggins led the scoring with 21 points while Shabazz Muhammad added 14 points in just 18 minutes off the bench, but the Wolves shot just 36 percent from the field as a team which is never going to be good enough against the league-leading Warriors. Zach LaVine particularly struggled, scoring just nine points on four of 16 shooting after pouring in 22 points and 10 assists on Saturday against the Spurs, but he'll continue to get as many minutes as he can handle with Mo Williams still sidelined with injury.

The Dallas Mavericks have won six of their last eight overall but will still be licking their wounds after losing to the Grizzlies by 114-105 last night. Chandler Parsons made six threes en route to 30 points, while Jameer Nelson added 18 points, but it still wasn't enough to make up for Monta Ellis who has been the Mavs' best player so far this season, but made just one of his 11 shots to finish with a season-low two points. Dirk Nowitzki wasn't much better, scoring just 11 points on four of 17 shooting so it's actually a little surprising the Mavs didn't lose by a bigger margin. Despite the loss, Dallas are still a healthy 16-7 on the season and 8-4 on the road.

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

The New Orleans Pelicans have won three of their last five overall and are going for a third straight after taking down the slumping Knicks by 104-93 last night. Tyreke Evans led the way with a game-high 27 points on 11 of 15 shooting while Anthony Davis added 18 points as the Pelicans sent the Knicks to improved to their ninth straight loss. With the win, New Orleans returns to .500 on the season with a 10-10 overall record and 6-2 record at home.

The Toronto Raptors have split their last eight games and are still the top squad in the East. On the season, the Raptors are averaging 108.5 points on 46.3 percent shooting and are allowing 100.5 points on 46.3 percent shooting. Kyle Lowry leads Toronto with 20.1 points and 7.5 assists while Louis Williams is averaging 13.9 points on 41.4 percent shooting.

The Toronto Raptors are starting to struggle defensively without DeMar DeRozan, as they’re allowing 106 points on 47.6 percent shooting in their last five games. The Raptors have allowed 100-plus points in nine straight games, a number that has to improve if they’re truly going to be a title contender.

David West is grabbing 5.9 rebounds per game and Chris Copeland is shooting 37.1 percent from the field. The Indiana Pacers are just a brutal offensive team with no Paul George on the court, as they’re shooting just 41.6 percent from the field and 29.7 percent from beyond the arc in their last five games. No matter how well the Pacers rebound or play defense, it’s tough to win in this league when the offense consistently struggles.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs Charlotte Hornets

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

The Cleveland Cavaliers were really building momentum with eight straight wins but are suddenly staring down the barrel of a possible third straight loss after falling to the Pelicans by 119-114 on Friday. LeBron James returned after sitting out on Thursday to pour in a season-high 41 points on 17 of 24 shooting while Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving added 21 and 17 points respectively, but the Cavs still couldn't match the Pelicans who were allowed to pour in a season-high 64 points in the first half while shooting 55.7 percent for the game. What made it even worse was that the Pelicans lost their best player in Anthony Davis after just seven minutes but other than James' points, no other Cavs player could capitalize on the absence of a shot blocker. With the loss, Cleveland falls to 13-9 on the season and 6-5 on the road.

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

The Charlotte Hornets have struggled all season and are staring down the barrel of a third straight loss after getting thumped by the Nets 114-87 on Saturday. In a matchup against a Nets team struggling to find form, the Hornets were slow out of the gates and never really got into the race. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had 15 points while Brian Roberts added 14, but the Hornets were completely blown off the court by the Nets who shot season highs of 58.3 percent from the field and 16 of 23 from the three-point line. Charlotte has now lost 12 of their last 14 to fall to 6-17 on the season and 5-8 at home.

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

The Philadelphia 76ers just two wins on the entire season but almost grabbed their third on Saturday when they took the Grizzlies to overtime before losing 120-115. Robert Covington led the scoring with 24 points, Hollis Thompson added 21 while Michael Carter-Williams racked up a triple-double of 16 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists, but it still wasn't good enough to get past the Grizzlies who came back from 18 points down over the final seven minutes of regulation to force overtime and steal the win. Another game, another painful defeat, but you can't say the Sixers aren't playing hard because they've been close to winning so many games this season which says a lot when you look at their uninspiring roster.

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

The Boston Celtics looked to have turned the season around when they won three straight last week, but they're now looking at a fourth straight loss after falling to the Knicks by 101-95 on Friday. Jeff Green led the scoring with 28 points including four threes while Tyler Zeller added 19 points, but the rest of the team struggled for the most part, especially on defense where the Knicks who rank near the bottom in the league were allowed to shoot 49.4 percent from the field. The Celtics simply need more scoring and they need it from players like Jared Sullinger who is averaging 14.1 points this season but has totalled just 10 points in his last three outings, including zero from Friday's loss. Boston is now just 7-14 on the season and 5-8 at home.

The Los Angeles Clippers are back to their elite offensive ways, as they’re averaging 109.2 points on 39 percent shooting from deep in their last five games. The problem is that the Clippers aren’t playing much defense, allowing 100-plus points in five of their last seven games. Spencer Hawes is doubtful with a leg injury.

Away - Detroit Pistons

The Detroit Pistons have lost 13 of their last 15 games and hope to win three straight road games.

Brandon Jennings is dishing out 6.2 assists per game and Andre Drummond is averaging 11.8 rebounds. The Detroit Pistons have been one of the worst offensive teams in the league all season but have scored a combined 200 points in their last two games, which have produced victories. Still, the Pistons are shooting just 27.2 percent from beyond the arc in their last five games. It’ll be interesting to see if Detroit can keep the momentum going.

The Washington Wizards remain an offensive machine, as they’re shooting 47.2 percent from the field and 42.9 percent from beyond the arc in their last five games.

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

The Knicks of this season in no way resemble the team that dominated that night, losing all six of their road games since winning their first in Cleveland on Oct. 30.The assumption some may have about New York's January win in Dallas is that Chandler's presence contributed to the stout defense, but the center was working his way back from injury and played less than five minutes.New York shipped Chandler back to Dallas in an offseason trade that brought in point guard Jose Calderon, who missed the first 13 games with a strained calf and has totaled 12 points and eight assists in the last two games.The Knicks and Mavericks split their two meetings in each of the last three seasons. The most recent ended with Dallas prevailing 110-108 at Madison Square Garden on Feb. 24 despite Anthony's 44 points.

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

During its recent winning streak, Dallas (10-5) which leads the NBA with an average of 109.3 points -- scored 118.6 per game, though that number was significantly bumped by three contests ending with point totals of 123, 131 and 140. Dallas, which beat Philadelphia by 53 and the Los Angeles Lakers by 34 in that span, then ran into a wall Saturday at Houston in a 95-92 loss. The difference came from 3-point range, where the teams shot a combined 21 for 81 with 15 of those 3s made by the Rockets.

The Orlando Magic are still struggling offensively, scoring less than 100 points in 10 of their last 12 games but are shooting 37.9 percent from deep in their last five. The Magic’s inconsistent ways are what’s keeping them from being a possible playoff team in the East.

Blake Griffin led the way with 18 points and seven assists while Chris Paul had 11 points and eight assists hit the ground running and led by as many as 27 points in the confidence-building blowout.

Despite the win, Indiana are still only 8-17 on the season and 5-8 at home. In injury news, George Hill took part in a full-court scrimmage on Tuesday and could be back before Christmas.

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

The Golden State Warriors looked invincible during their 16-game win streak, but that music stopped on Tuesday in a 105-98 loss to the Grizzlies. Klay Thompson led the scoring with four threes en route to 22 points while Stephen Curry added 19 points and six assists, but while the Warriors started the game well, the Grizzlies flipped the game on its head when they kicked off the second quarter with a 20-0 run. The Warriors would claw their way back to keep it close in the last quarter, but with a little help from the referees, the Grizzlies were just good enough to close out the game in the end.

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

The Oklahoma City Thunder have been on an absolute tear lately, winning nine of their last 10 and now playing for an eighth straight win after taking down the Kings by 104-92 on Tuesday. Serge Ibaka hosted a block party with a season-high seven blocks while Russell Westbrook continued his hot form with a game-high 32 points, but the biggest positive from the win came from Kevin Durant who scored 26 points while taking a season-high 25 shot attempts. This Thunder team looks like they're already in mid-season form which is scary because Durant has yet to fully find his range.

New York Knicks

The New York Knicks have lost 12 of their last 13 games and have shown little signs of turning things around. On the season, the Knicks are averaging 93.6 points on 45.1 percent shooting and are allowing 99.6 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Carmelo Anthony leads New York with 23.4 points and 6.6 rebounds while Amar'e Stoudemire is averaging 13.3 points and 7.4 rebounds. Tim Hardaway Jr. is shooting 39.5 percent from the field and Jose Calderon is dishing out 4.1 assists. The New York Knicks lack of offense continues to be the main reason for their struggles, but they’re allowing 102 points on 48.1 percent shooting in their last five games. Still, the Knicks have lost 10 straight when scoring less than 100 points. J.R. Smith is questionable for this game with a heel injury.

Chicago Bulls

The Chicago Bulls have won four of their last six games and play their first contest since Monday. On the season, the Bulls are averaging 102.1 points on 45.5 percent shooting and are allowing 98.5 points on 43.3 percent shooting. Jimmy Butler leads Chicago with 20.9 points and 5.9 rebounds while Pau Gasol is averaging 18.7 points and 11.9 rebounds. Derrick Rose is dishing out 5.1 assists and Taj Gibson is shooting 53 percent from the field. The Chicago Bulls defense has really turned up the notch recently, allowing 93.2 points on 41.1 percent shooting from the field in their last five games. The Bulls are 11-2 SU this season when allowing less than 100 points. However, five of the Bulls nine losses have come at home. Joakim Noah is questionable for this game with an ankle injury.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Sacramento Kings

Milwaukee Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks have split their last six games and are in trouble without Jabari Parker. On the season, the Bucks are averaging 99.2 points on 46.1 percent shooting and are allowing 100.4 points on 45.3 percent shooting. Brandon Knight is averaging 17.5 points and 4.7 assists while Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 12.2 points and 5.9 rebounds. O.J. Mayo is shooting 40.5 percent from the field and Larry Sanders is averaging 6.1 rebounds per game. The Milwaukee Bucks are coming off a Wednesday loss to the Portland Trail Blazers, a game in which they started four guards with the loss of Parker to an ankle injury. The Bucks have allowed 100-plus points in seven of their last nine games and are allowing teams to shoot 47.2 percent in their last five.

Sacramento Kings

The Sacramento Kings have lost four straight games and are still looking for a new head coach. On the season, the Kings are averaging 100.6 points on 45.2 percent shooting and are allowing 101.4 points on 44 percent shooting. Rudy Gay is averaging 21.2 points and 6.3 rebounds while Darren Collison is averaging 15.6 points and 6.2 assists. Carl Landry is averaging 4.2 rebounds per game and Ben McLemore is shooting 46.3 percent from the field. The Sacramento Kings are relying way too much on the three-ball recently, averaging nearly 18 long distance shots in their last five games, but they’re shooting just 43.2 percent from deep during that stretch. The Kings have lost six of their last eight home games SU and need to start winning games like this if they’re going to get back to a .500 record.

New Orleans Pelicans vs Houston Rockets

New Orleans Pelicans

The New Orleans Pelicans have split their last 10 games and look for just their second road win of the month. On the season, the Pelicans are averaging 103.3 points on 46.4 percent shooting and are allowing 102.6 points on 47 percent shooting. Anthony Davis leads New Orleans with 24.6 points and 10.1 rebounds while Tyreke Evans is averaging 17 points and 5.8 assists. Jrue Holiday is averaging seven assists per game and Ryan Anderson is shooting 41.8 percent from the field. The New Orleans Pelicans have to improve defensively if they’re going to be a consistent team, as they’re allowing 50.2 percent shooting from the field and 41.6 percent shooting from downtown in their last five games. The Pelicans are a top-10 offensive team but it’s hard to win games with zero defense

Houston Rockets

The Houston Rockets have won seven of their last eight games and are playing a back-to-back after a win over Denver on Wednesday. On the season, the Rockets are averaging 99.6 points on 42.7 percent shooting and are allowing 95.3 points on 42.8 percent shooting. James Harden leads Houston with 26.3 points and 6.7 assists while Dwight Howard is averaging 19.5 points and 11.5 rebounds. Trevor Ariza is shooting 37 percent from the field and Patrick Beverley is grabbing five rebounds. The Houston Rockets may be as healthy as they’ve been all season, especially with Howard back, who has a combined 50 points and 29 rebounds in his last two games. It’s going to be interesting to see how Houston responds after playing an overtime game late Wednesday.

Orlando Magic vs Utah Jazz

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

The Orlando Magic are 10-18 on the year with a 3-6 record at home but the young team is really meeting or even exceeding expectations at this point. While it has to be disconcerting that the team has only won three games at home, it’s pretty impressive they’ve been able to stick together and gut out seven wins on the road. The Magic have had plenty of trouble scoring over the course of the year with an offense that ranks 27th while averaging just 93.8 points per game, and the defense has been mediocre allowing 99.4 points per game to rank 14th. Leading the Magic are SF Tobias Harris (18.4 ppg, 7.6 rpg) and C Nikola Vucevic (18.3 ppg, 11.4 rpg) who are 22 and 24 years old respectively, speaking to the youthful core of this squad. Victor Oladipo has been showing continued improvement in the backcourt as well with 14.7 points per game while shooting 46.2% from the field and 45.5% from deep. The Magic are opening up a four game holiday home stand here, with this contest being the first of three against sub-.500 competition and culminating with a date with the Cavaliers the day after Christmas.

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

The Utah Jazz are off to a terrible start to the year sitting at 7-19 with a 3-10 record in road contests. The Jazz don’t get the job done at either end of the floor as the offense averages just 96.6 points per game to rank 21st and the defense allows 101.7 per game to also rank 21st. Gordon Hayward leads the team in scoring with 19.1 points per game and also chips in 5.5 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.46 steals. Derrick Favors averages 15.4 points and 8.1 rebounds per game but the big man has sat out two of the last four games and been unproductive by his own standards in the other two which could give pause to fantasy owners. PG Trey Burke has been inconsistent in his second year out of Michigan with 11.3 points and 5.5 assists per game while struggling to shoot the ball at just 36.8%. The Jazz are in the midst of a six game road swing, playing game four in Orlando after going 1-2 in the first three games of the trip.

Philadelphia 76ers vs Charlotte Hornets

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

The Philadelphia 76ers are on a four game losing streak entering this contest after picking up their first two wins of the season in the month of December. The 76ers are 2-22 on the year with an 0-13 mark at home that they will desperately be trying to break. As bad as the Sixers have been they have to like this spot to snap their home skid after they hung with the Grizzlies last Saturday only to fall in OT. The Sixers rank last in the league in scoring with 91.3 points per game and the defense ranks 25th while conceding 103.7 points per game. Tony Wroten leads the team with 16.5 points per game but the guard is easing his way back from injury at present. Michael Carter-Williams 15.5 points, 7.7 assists and 7.3 rebounds per game, but the second year point guard is also struggling with turnovers with 6.4 per game over the last five games. Second year SF Robert Covington has emerged as the third leading scorer with 11.3 points per game and Nerlens Noel leads the team in rebounding from the forward position with 6.5 per game in an erratic rookie campaign. The 76ers will open up a seven game road trip on Sunday following Friday’s game.

Away - Charlotte Hornets
Last away matches - L-L-L-L-L-L

The Charlotte Hornets were expected to contend for a seven or eight seed this season and thus far the season has been a disaster instead. The Hornets are 6-19 on the year and with a 1-10 road record there’s no guarantee of them taking care of business against a team like the Sixers. Making matters worse perhaps is a recent schedule that has seen the team alternate home and road games over the last four outings while also facing strong competition. The Hornets struggle to score with just 94.7 points per game to rank 24th and the defense that was once somewhat of a calling card is also faltering allowing 101.8 points per game to rank 22nd. Center Al Jefferson leads the team with 19.2 points and eight rebounds but you have to wonder if the team is losing rhythm early in games when the offense centers on feeding the big man so heavily. Kemba Walker averages 15.8 points, 5.6 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game, but his shooting hasn’t been great at 38.2%. The addition of Lance Stephenson hasn’t yielded the results the Hornets had hoped and to make matters worse the 4th year guard out of Cincinnati is expected to miss this game with a groin injury. Look for Gerald Henderson to see an increased workload here as a result.

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

The Cleveland Cavaliers have lost three of their last four games and are coming off a blowout loss to Atlanta.

LeBron James is averaging 25.4 points and 7.6 assists while Kyrie Irving is averaging 19.9 points and 5.2 assists. Kevin Love is grabbing 10.5 rebounds per game and Dion Waiters is shooting 40.4 percent from the field. The Cleveland Cavaliers are back to not playing a lick of defense, as teams are shooting 51.8 percent from the field and 38.8 percent from deep in their last five games. The Cavs have lost five of their last seven games SU when allowing 100-plus points. The Cavaliers remain a team that’s tough to figure out.

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

The Brooklyn Nets have lost five of their last seven games and are slowly falling out of the playoff race. On the season, the Nets are averaging 95.9 points on 44.3 percent shooting and are allowing 98.4 points on 44.3 percent shooting. Deron Williams is averaging 16.2 points and 6.9 assists while Joe Johnson is averaging 15.9 points and five rebounds. Jarrett Jack is dishing out 3.4 assists and Mirza Teletovic is shooting 44 percent from the field. The Brooklyn Nets lack of offense has killed them all season, as they’ve scored less than 100 points in 12 of their last 13 games and are shooting 43.1 percent from the field in their last five. The Nets are 5-3 SU this season when scoring at least 100 points. The Nets have also won three of their last five road games SU.

Detroit Pistons vs Toronto Raptors

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

The Detroit Pistons have split their last four games and are the third-worst team in the East. On the season, the Pistons are averaging 93.8 points on 41.1 percent shooting and are allowing 100.5 points on 45.5 percent shooting. Greg Monroe is averaging 14.5 points and nine rebounds while Josh Smith is averaging 13.2 points and 4.7 assists. Brandon Jennings is racking up 6.2 assists and Andre Drummond is grabbing 12.3 rebounds per game. The Detroit Pistons continue to struggle offensively, scoring less than 100 points in four of their last six games and shooting just 30.8 percent from deep in their last five contests. At this point, the Pistons are entering tanking mode for a top draft pick. The Pistons two home victories are the second-fewest in the NBA.

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

The Toronto Raptors have won seven of their last nine games and play their fifth road game of the month.

Sacramento Kings vs LA Lakers

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

The Sacramento Kings have lost 10 of their last 12 overall and will be looking to snap a five-game skid after losing to the Bucks by 108-107 on Thursday. Ben McLemore had 22 points on 8 of 10 shooting while Rudy Gay added 22 points and six assists, but with the game on the line, the ball went to DeMarcus Cousins who missed the game winner but still finished with 27 points, 11 rebounds and five assists. As a team, the Kings shot a sizzling 56.7 percent from the field but in an attempt to play a more up-tempo game, the Kings committed 21 turnovers which led to 17 easy points for the young Bucks. With the loss, Sacramento falls to 11-15 overall and 6-9 at home.

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

The Los Angeles Lakers have won three of their last five but are now hoping to avoid a third straight loss after falling narrowly to the Thunder by 104-103 on Friday. Ed Davis had a nice game of 18 points and on 8 of 10 shooting while Ronnie Price and Carlos Boozer added 14 points each, but with the Lakers down by one in the last possession, the ball obviously went to Kobe Bryant who just missed the game-winner, capping a terrible shooting night of 3 for 15. Perhaps the ball could have went to Jeremy Lin who made a tough shot in the previous possession or maybe Nick Young, who got ejected for a flagrant 2 foul, but Kobe could have been 1 for 20 and the ball would have still gone to him for the last shot. With the loss, LA drops to 8-18 on the season and 3-10 at home.

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

The Miami Heat have lost nine of their last 12 and will be looking to avoid a third straight loss after falling to the Wizards by 105-103 on Friday. John Wall led the team with 20 points and 10 assists while Nene added 20 points in just 26 minutes off the bench as the Wizards overcame a rough shooting night of 3 of 14 from the three point line to take down the Heat who were without Chris Bosh. Defensively, the Wizards really didn't have much of an answer for Dwyane Wade who torched them for 28 points and eight assists, but they managed to work themselves into the game in the fourth quarter and cap the win off with a late clutch steal off Wade. With the win, Washington imrpoves to 19-6 overall and 6-4 on the road.

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

The Boston Celtics will try for a season-high fourth straight victory tonight when they invade the AmericanAirlines Arena to take on the Heat. In the team's first game since trading Rajon Rondo, six players finish in double figures as the Celtics destroyed the Timberwolves by 114-98 on Friday. Kelly Olynyk led the way with 21 points off the bench while Jeff Green added 18 points, but it was a real balanced offense that only seemed to get better as the C's shot 56.5 percent from the field while scoring 61 points in the second half. With the win, Boston went to 10-14 on the season and 7-8 at home.

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

The Orlando Magic have lost five of their last six overall and are coming off a third straight loss, falling to the Jazz by 101-94 on Friday. Tobias Harris continued his breakout season with 24 points on 10 of 18 shooting, while Evan Fournier added 21 points, but the Magic were always playing catchup as the Jazz hit the lead in the second minute of the game and never relinquished it. Orlando is currently ranked 27th in the league in points allowed averaging just 93.8 points per game, which is why they're 0-8 when they allow their opponents to shoot over 50 percent from the field. Orlando is now 10-19 on the season and just 3-7 at home.

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

The Philadelphia 76ers will be looking to snap a five-game skid after getting thumped by the Hornets by 109-91 on Friday. Tony Wroten and Robert Covington both had 19 points while Michael Carter-Williams added 14 points and 10 assists, but the Sixers were always fighting a losing battle after allowing the Hornets to pour in 37 points in the first quarter and 66 points in the first half. In fact, slow starts have been the story for the Sixers all season and it's the main reason that five of their last six losses have come by 12 points or more.

Charlotte Hornets vs Denver Nuggets

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

The Charlotte Hornets have split their last eight games and are also looking for consistency. On the season, the Hornets are averaging 95.6 points on 43.2 percent shooting and are allowing 100.9 points on 46.6 percent shooting. Al Jefferson is averaging 19.2 points and 8.3 rebounds while Kemba Walker is averaging 16.4 points and 5.6 assists. Gary Neal is shooting 40.1 percent from the field and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is grabbing 5.8 rebounds. The Charlotte Hornets offense is starting to pick up the pace, as they’ve topped 100 points in three straight games and are shooting 38.9 percent from deep in their last five games. The Hornets can get back in the playoff race with a few more victories starting with this matchup. Lance Stephenson is likely out with a groin injury.

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

The Denver Nuggets have split their last six games and are hoping to get some consistency going. On the season, the Nuggets are averaging 102.2 points on 43.2 percent shooting and are allowing 103.9 points on 43.3 percent shooting. Ty Lawson is averaging 15.2 points and 10.7 assists while Arron Afflalo is averaging 15 points on 44.4 percent shooting. Kenneth Faried is grabbing 6.8 rebounds and Wilson Chandler is shooting 42.9 percent from the field. The Denver Nuggets main issue this season has been their lack of defense, but they’re allowing 41.4 percent shooting from the field and 27.7 percent shooting from deep in their last five games. If the Nuggets are going to climb back into the playoff race and string some wins together, it’s going to continue on the defensive side.

Houston Rockets vs Portland Trail Blazers

Home - Houston Rockets
Last away matches - W-W-L-W-W-L

The Houston Rockets were on a hot streak of their own but are suddenly looking to avoid a third straight loss after losing to the Hawks by 104-97 on Saturday. James Harden did a great job of sharing the ball to finish with 18 points and 14 assists while Dwight Howard had 19 points, 11 rebounds and five assists, but the Rockets shot just 39.5 percent from the field compared to the Hawks' 51.4 percent. The Rockets did a great job of coming back from 16 points to tie it entering the fourth but they just couldn't stop the Hawks late, particularly Kyle Korver who had 22 points with four three pointers. With the loss, Houston drops to 19-7 overall and 9-5 at home.

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

The Portland Trailblazers have just been piling up the W's all season, winning their last five straight to improve to 22-6 on the season. After taking down the Spurs on Friday in a triple overtime thriller, fatigue was supposed to set into the Blazers but they just hit the ground running again on Saturday and blew away the Pelicans by 114-88. LaMarcus Aldridge had another monster line of 27 points, 12 rebounds, three steals and two blocks while Damian Lillard had 17 points and seven assists as the Blazers jumped out to an early 32-17 lead after the first quarter and never looked back. In fact, the Blazers were up by 32 points heading into the fourth quarter before they took their foot off the gas and showed a little mercy. Portland has now won 10 of their last 12 games, but only three of those wins came against teams with winning records.

Golden State Warriors vs Sacramento Kings

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

The Golden State Warriors bounced back from their first loss in over a month with a nice 114-109 win over the surging Thunder on Thursday. Stephen Curry made five three pointers and finished with 34 points and nine assists while Klay Thompson added 19 points of his own, but the Warriors should definitely count themselves lucky as Kevin Durant sprained his ankle and left the game in the first half after pouring in an amazing 30 points in less than 20 minutes. Still, at the end of the day, a win is still a win so the Warriors improve their league-best record to 22-3 overall and 9-1 at home.

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

The Sacramento Kings have lost six of their last eight overall but were able to snap a five-game skid yesterday with a 108-101 win over the Lakers. DeMarcus Cousins continued his stellar season with 29 points, Rudy Gay had 24 points, Ben McLemore had 23 and Darren Collison added 19 as the Kings battled with the Lakers for the majority of the game before pulling away late. Defensively, the Kings had a clear plan to body up against Kobe Bryant and it paid off as he shot a miserly 8 for 30 for his 25 points which really hurt the Lakers' offense as they shot just 37.9 percent. Despite the win, Sacramento is still below .500 for the season, as they are currently 12-15 overall and 7-9 at home.

Atlanta Hawks vs Milwaukee Bucks

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

The Atlanta Hawks have won five straight games and are looking like one of the top teams in the East. On the season, the Hawks are averaging 103.2 points on 47.2 percent shooting and are allowing 97.4 points on 44 percent shooting.Jeff Teague is averaging 16.5 points and seven assists while Paul Millsap is averaging 16.3 points and eight rebounds. Al Horford is grabbing 6.4 rebounds and Kyle Korver is shooting 51.6 percent from the field. The Atlanta Hawks are 12-1 SU this month and are quickly becoming a team that could seriously make a run in the East. While the Hawks offense gets a ton of credit, their defense is allowing 97.4 points on 41.1 percent shooting in their last five games. The Hawks are also 13-2 SU at home.

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

The Milwaukee Bucks are looking for some consistency as they’ve split their last six games. On the season, the Bucks are averaging 99.6 points on 46.5 percent shooting and are allowing 101.2 points on 45.6 percent shooting. Brandon Knight is averaging 18.1 points and 5.3 assists while Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 12.3 points and 5.9 rebounds. O.J. Mayo is shooting 40.2 percent from the field and Jerryd Bayless is producing 2.5 assists. The Milwaukee Bucks have shown progress as of late offensively, shooting 49.2 percent from the field and 42.7 percent from three in their last five games. However, the Bucks just aren’t consistent on either side of the ball, especially on defense where they’ve allowed 100-plus points in seven of their last eight games. John Henson is questionable for this game with a foot injury.

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

The Detroit Pistons have lost their last four straight to drop to a miserable 5-23 on the season which, to put into perspective, is just one win better than the league-worst 76ers. In Sunday's 110-105 loss to the Nets, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 20 points while Andre Drummond added 18 points and 20 rebounds but Josh Smith had another quiet outing of just 13 points and I guess that was the straw that broke the camel's back because he has since been let go by the Pistons and looks to be on his way to sign with the Rockets. This really looks like a win-win sitation for everyone because the change of scenery could rejuvenate Smith's career and the only way for the Pistons franchise is up.

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

The Indiana Pacers struggled for most of the season, but they're suddenly in for a strong chance of getting a third straight win after clipping the Pelicans by 96-84 on Tuesday. Roy Hibbert had a nice outing with 14 points and a season-high seven blocks, while David West and Solomon Hill added 13 points each, but the story of the night was George Hill who scored 15 points in his return from a 28-game absence. It wasn't a massive win because the Pelicans are arguably the most inconsistent team in the league, but it was great seeing the Pacers looking so energized in Hill's return. With the win, Indiana improves to 10-19 overall and 6-8 at home.

Asian Handicap
Home - (+3.00)
Away - (-3.00)
Pick - Detroit Pistons (+3.00)

Portland Trail Blazers vs Philadelphia 76ers

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

The Portland Trailblazers have been red-hot all season and will be looking for a seventh win in eight outings after beating the Thunder by 115-111 in overtime on Tuesday. Damian Lillard continued his rise to superstar status with 40 points and 11 assists including eight 3-pointers, while LaMarcus Aldridge and Wesley Matthews added 25 and 22 points respectively as the Blazers beat the Thunder in a scrappy affair that involved an altercation after the final siren. Portland is now a healthy 23-7 on the season which puts them at second in the Western Conference standings.

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

Believe it or not, the Philadelphia 76ers will be going for a season-high third straight win tonight after beating the Heat on Tuesday by 91-87 in a shocker. Michael Carter-Williams led the way with 20 points, five assists and six steals while Luc Richard Mbah a Moute added 19 points as the Sixers stormed back from a 23-point deficit in the third quarter to beat the Heat and improve to 4-23 on the season. It wasn't even a lucky shooting streak that saved the day, but rather a fantastic showing of lockdown defense that forced turnover after turnover and tough shot after tough shot. Of course, the Heat did shoot themselves in the foot when they got a little trigger happy from the 3-point line, but you have to give credit to these young Sixers who continue to fight against all odds.
