An excellent 2-0 night last night with the NBA Tips.
We had the Brooklyn Nets -3 and we didn’t even have to sweat on that one. The Nets blew the Sacramento Kings away 123-94. Vin mentioned D’Angelo Russell yesterday and the man delivered as Nets did an excellent job on their home court. It’s always nice to see a team perform like that from start to finish at home.
The Miami Heat one was slightly more tight. We had Heat +8.5 and they lost by exactly 8. Considering we have been on the wrong side of those half points more often than not this season, it was very nice to see variance swing our way finally. Those things even out over the season and I believe we still have about 6-7 of those wins to pick up.
For Heat it was a game of quarters as they lost two quarters convincingly and won two quarters convincingly. No-one really stuck out for the Heat points wise as it was spread around more.
Today is Tuesday, January 22nd 2019. We’ve got the Raptors hosting the Kings, the Thunder hosting the Blazers, the Mavs hosting the Clippers and the Suns hosting the Timberwolves.
To be honest it’s four ugly matchups tonight from a betting perspective but let’s see what I can dig up:
Minnesota Timberwolves vs Phoenix Suns Betting Tips:
These two teams went at it a couple of nights ago. The Timberwolves had a rare tightened up defense down the stretch as they left the Suns 0-4 in the final minutes and Derrick Rose hit a sick 18 foot jumper to get the win for them.
Now they face off in Phoenix and this should be a very interesting one. Deandre Ayton is still out for the Phoenix Suns.
To me, that just means enough points for the rest of the players against this week Timberwolves defence. Especially with the way the game ended last time – I’ve got to think the Suns will be up for this one.
With no Ayton we saw the points spread around a fair bit and I like that to continue again. I think Devin Booker is going to be up for this one. he only had 18 points in the last game but I do think he will do better tonight.
Devin Booker Over 23.5 Points.
