06 Jan 02:30 Brooklyn Nets vs Oklahoma City Thunder
Things are just not happening for Brooklyn, there is no chemistry and the situation with their coach is not clear. The Thunder started off this year with a win against the Nets and this will be the second time beating the Nets in just 5 days. Okc plays their best basketball at home while the Nets don’t play any good basketball, they have won only 2 games of their previous 12. But Okc wins here, there’s a reason they are 2nd in the West, take them to win.
06 Jan 02:30 Philadelphia 76ers vs New York Knicks
Joel Embiid is back for the 76ers, and he showed this as Philadelphia won against the Bulls in a game, he dropped a triple double. Teams have a hard time guarding Embiid, and the Knicks will be no different and will get into foul trouble. The Knicks don’t have the best away record and as an underdog it’s even worse, give me Philadelphia to win here.
06 Jan 02:30 Cleveland Cavaliers vs Washington Wizards
The Wizards do not have enough scoring options and they are also terrible on defense. This is another game where they will be blown out by the Cavs. The Cavs won by 39 points last time out and the Cavs bench even humiliated the Wizards starters. Give me Cleveland to win here.
06 Jan 03:00 Chicago Bulls vs Charlotte Hornets
A team that has most of its starters out is coming to play in Chicago, I can only take the Bulls here. Good news for the Bulls is that Zach Lavine is now listed questionable so he could feature in this game. The Hornets had a big game against the Kings and they won that game because of the Kings’ turnovers. Now the Bulls are top 2 alongside Dallas when it comes to allowing the least turnovers per game. Take Chicago to win here.
