It is time for another slate of NBA games this Wednesday, SBR's expert capper has pulled three top plays that will bring profit to your wallet. Read on for valuable NBA Picks.

Grizzlies vs Knicks

Tuesday, the Knicks announced that Kristaps Porzingis was probable to return to action tonight after missing the last two games with a sprained ankle. The Knicks lost both of those games and honestly looked like a completely different team without Porzingis in the lineup. The unicorn has established himself as All-Star caliber player who can light it up from three-point range but is also adept in the post. Without Porzingis in the lineup the Knicks are just a pedestrian team offensively, having to rely on Michael Beasley to take on on more responsibility offensively.

The Grizzlies find themselves in a similar situation playing without Mike Conley. Memphis had lost 11 games in a row before getting a big victory against the Minnesota Timberwolves this week. In the game against Minnesota, Marc Gasol lead the way with 21 points and was able to give Memphis the inside-out game that they have been needing from him this season. It is no secret that the 33-year-old Gasol has looked a little slower than normal this season and his poor play was the catalyst behind him being benched by former head coach David Fizdale.

In normal circumstances, the Grizzlies would be exposed for their lack of talent on the wing, but the Knicks are extremely weak in their own wing depth. Tim Hardaway Jr is not expected to make his return quite yet, which gives an advantage to guys like Andrew Harrison, Dillon Brooks, and James Ennis for Memphis. If Gasol can just slow down Porzingis enough to force other Knicks to make plays, the Grizzlies will have a good chance at pulling off the upset, back them as your NBA pick.

Warriors vs Hornets

Stephen Curry will not be able play in front of his hometown crowd this season after it was announced that he will miss two weeks of game action with a sprained ankle. Given Curry’s ankle injury history, the Warriors were very fortunate that he will only miss two weeks and that there was no serious damage done to his ankle. The Warriors will have their hands full trying to stop the opposing point guard, Kemba Walker, in Curry’s absence.

Walker returned to the lineup after missing two games with a sprained shoulder by pouring in 29 points in a win over the Orlando Magic on Monday. Kemba is in the midst of another All-Star caliber season and has done a fantastic job of buoying the Hornets’ offensive production on many nights. On the defensive end, Charlotte is anchored by Dwight Howard, who seems to be playing some of his more inspired ball in recent memory.

Tonight the Hornets will have to begin a tough stretch of play without their head coach Steve Clifford who will be out indefinitely with a medical issue of his own. Look for the Hornets to rally around their coach’s absence and play an inspired game against the defending champions.

Heat vs Spurs

Even without their Defensive Player of the Year, Kawhi Leonard, the Spurs are the model of consistency in the NBA. Spread the ball on offense and keep the ball moving until you find the open man sounds so simple as a game plan, but Greg Popovich has the discipline to make it work. San Antonio really makes their impact on the defensive end where they are once again ranked in the top five in scoring defense.

Not only are the Spurs defending but they are also getting timely play from their young point guard, Dejounte Murray.T he second-year pro out of Washington has been able to use his speed and quickness to get into the teeth of the defense and kick out to open San Antonio shooters.

Murray isn’t the only Spur shining, LaMarcus Aldridge is having a bounce-back campaign in which he is averaging 24 points and 9 rebounds and most closely resembles the dominant force that he was while playing in Portland.

The Miami Heat have been picking up where they left off after a 30-10 finish to last season, lead by Goran Dragic who is averaging 19 points per game. The only problem with the Heat is that their star players are constantly getting hurt, but with Whiteside back in the lineup, they have flourished this year defensively. Miami has more than enough firepower to keep this game with San Antonio close.
