There’s a new game day in the NBA and PlayOn99 News brings you everything you need to know about the teams and their predictions.
NBA: Charlotte Ornets – Houston Rockets (5:30 AM)
The Ornets will seek victory to enter the Playoffs zone against the worst classified in the Western Conference. If Terry Rozier adjusts his three-point shots he may be more influential in the final score.
The locals will have three casualties: Cody Martin, Miles Bridges and P.J. Washington. Houston has more trouble putting together the team: Garrison Mathews, John Wall and D.J. Augustin will not be able to be lined up and Kevin Porter Jr. and Jalen Green are in doubt.
Charlotte starts with a lot of advantage to win this game and it is reflected in their quota (1.84) although in H2H they won only 4 times against the Rockets and lost 16.
Atlanta Hawks – Chicago Bulls (6 AM)
The Hawks will host the second best in the Western conference with 13 players in nursing.
Chicago comes with a run where it swept Indiana, Houston and the Los Angeles Lakers.
The numbers don’t back the Hawks: They’ve lost their last 7 home games in Atlanta.
Minnesota Timberwolves – Boston Celtics (6:30 AM)
The 9 from each Conference will meet in Minneapolis with heavy casualties on each side. In Boston the concern is losing its two stars Jayson Tatum and Dennis Schroeder.
Minnesota also has many casualties. Among them the three players with the most points: Karl-Anthony Towns, Anthony Edwards and D’Angelo Russel.
Odds lean towards Boston, but it has lost its last 4 road games and the last to Milwaukee, one of the best of the regular season. Timberwolves arrive with two consecutive losses to Utah and Dallas.
San Antonio Spurs – Utah Jazz (7 AM)
Spurs will host the Jazz in one of the stellar matches of the day. San Antonio arrives in 10th place in the Western Conference, but has 3 consecutive victories against the Lakers, Clippers and Milwaukee. Those of Greg Popovich recovered a great level and will seek to enter the Playoffs.
Utah is third in the conference and one of the best in the regular season. He also comes in with 3 wins in a row, but he knows what it’s like to lose to the Spurs: on December 17, it was the Texas team who won in Utah.
San Antonio starts with a very tempting odds of 3.15 and the bad news is that they lost Dejounte Murray. Although Utah also lost a star: Donovan Mitchell.
Phoenix Suns – Memphis Grizzlies (7:30 AM)
The highlight of the NBA day will be the meeting between Suns and Grizzlies in the city of Phoenix. The hosts come off a setback against Golden State at the hands of Stephen Curry, but they were the best this regular season.
Memphis will visit Phoenix with a victory under his belt, but he has chained a series of losses that marred a season that put him in playoff spots. They will have to replace a great player like Dillon Brooks.
Phoenix leads the quota for being better, being the star of this regular season and having won their meeting against Memphis in November.
