<p><b><a target="_blank" title="NBA Picks: Grizzlies vs. Bulls" href="/nba-basketball/free-picks/nba-picks-grizzlies-vs-bulls-a-37893/">Memphis Grizzlies vs. Chicago Bulls</a><i></i></b></p> <p><b><i>Covered by Jason Lake</i></b></p> <p>A lot is still on the line for both of these teams and we could very well see a low-scoring final with the way these two play defense. Chicago remains tied with Toronto for the third seed in the East, while Memphis is doing everything they can to make it into the eighth spot.</p> <p><a target="_blank" title="Free NBA picks available daily from SBR" href="/nba-basketball/">For his NBA picks</a> tonight, Jason sees value in the Bulls on the spread and is picking them to come through at home.</p> <p><b>Pick: </b>Bulls -1.5<b><i></i></b></p> <p>[gameodds]5/257665/?r-1=43-19-349/us[/gameodds]</p> <p><b><a target="_blank" title="NBA Picks: Nets vs. Celtics" href="/nba-basketball/free-picks/nba-picks-nets-vs-celtics-go-over-195-5-a-37907/">Brooklyn Nets vs. Boston Celtics</a><i></i></b></p> <p><b><i>Covered by Jordan Sharp</i></b></p> <p>The good times keep rolling for the Nets, who've won four straight to push them above .500 for quite some time.</p> <p>Emotions will run high again tonight for Paul Pierce (Kevin Garnett will sit out) as he returns to Boston once more. However, his team is playing lights out basketball right now and the Celtics have really been struggling. Jordan is angling towards a total play though and thinks the OVER is the right route.</p> <p><b>Pick: </b>OVER 195.5<b><i></i></b></p> <p>[gameodds]5/257668/?r-1=43-19-349/us[/gameodds]</p> <p><b><a target="_blank" title="NBA Picks: Jazz vs. Knicks" href="/nba-basketball/free-picks/utah-jazz-7-vs-new-york-knicks-nba-picks-a-37896/">Utah Jazz vs. New York Knicks</a><i></i></b></p> <p><b><i>Covered by Ron Patrick</i></b></p> <p>The Knicks finally got a precious win on Wednesday in Minnesota and maybe they'll be able to build off that performance when they host the Jazz tonight. <a target="_blank" title="Live NBA odds for every game" href="">Current NBA odds</a> have New York favored by seven points.</p> <p>Utah has hit another rough patch, losing four games in a row, yet Ron thinks we should back them here and take the points against the woefully inconsistent Knicks.</p> <p><b>Pick: </b>Jazz +7<b><i></i></b></p> <p>[gameodds]5/257669/?r-1=43-19-349/us[/gameodds]</p> <p><b>Atlanta Hawks vs. Golden State Warriors<i></i></b></p> <p><b><i>Covered by Jordan Sharp</i></b></p> <p>It keeps getting worse and worse for the Hawks, who have now lost four in a row and nine of their previous ten. They're in real danger of losing grip of their playoff seed, and it only gets tougher with a road game at Golden State on the agenda tonight.</p> <p>The Warriors have looked better recently and are now 7-3 SU over their past 10. Will they cover? Jordan will have his preferred pick available for viewing shortly.</p> <p><b>Pick: </b>Check back shortly!<b><i></i></b></p> <p>[gameodds]5/257675/?r-1=43-19-349/us[/gameodds]</p> <p><b><a target="_blank" title="NBA Picks: Trail Blazers vs. Mavericks" href="/nba-basketball/free-picks/mavs-3-vs-trail-blazers-nba-picks-a-37899/">Portland Trail Blazers vs. Dallas Mavericks</a><i></i></b></p> <p><b><i>Covered by Jordan Sharp</i></b></p> <p>A good test here for both teams, as the Mavericks try to end a three-game losing skid at home against the Trail Blazers. Portland is 18-11 SU on the road, but find themselves as underdogs against Dirk Nowitzki and company.</p> <p>This is another game Jordan has broken down closely and he sees Dallas ending on the winning side.</p> <p><b>Pick: </b>Mavericks -3<b><i></i></b></p> <p>[gameodds]5/257672/?r-1=43-19-349/us[/gameodds]</p> <p><b><a target="_blank" title="NBA Picks: Lakers vs. Nuggets" href="/nba-basketball/free-picks/nba-picks-lakers-vs-nuggets-a-37905/">Los Angeles Lakers vs. Denver Nuggets</a><i></i></b></p> <p><b><i>Covered by Doug Upstone</i></b></p> <p>How ugly was that last night? The Lakers suffered through a historic loss against the Clippers and now have to turn around and face a Nuggets team that just got its best player back in Ty Lawson. The Nuggets looked excellent in their win over Dallas the other night.</p> <p>It's no surprise to see Denver favored by such a huge margin (10 points), but what play does Doug like most? He's not afraid of laying this kind of number and is all over the Nuggets.</p> <p><b>Pick: </b>Nuggets -10<b><i></i></b></p> <p>[gameodds]5/257673/?r-1=43-19-349/us[/gameodds]</p> <p><b><a target="_blank" title="NBA Picks: Pacers vs. Rockets" href="/nba-basketball/free-picks/pacers-vs-rockets-nba-picks-a-37900/">Indiana Pacers vs. Houston Rockets</a><i></i></b></p> <p><b><i>Covered by Joe Catalano</i></b></p> <p>Saving the best for last, we've got the Rockets at home to the Pacers in a matchup between two of the better teams in the NBA. The Pacers have faltered a little bit as of late, losing two in a row, and they'll do battle against a Houston team that's won three straight.</p> <p>Joe is going to ride the momentum in this matchup and is therefore siding with the Rockets to win by four or more points.</p> <p><b>Pick: </b>Rockets -3.5</p> <p>[gameodds]5/257674/?r-1=43-19-349/us[/gameodds]</p>
