A nice and easy winning night last night with the Detroit Pistons. We had Pistons -5 and after a scary start to the game – where the Timberwolves went up 35-22 – the Pistons went to town. Andre Drummond racked up 31 points as the Pistons ran out 131-114 winners.
It was a good night of NBA action. The Celtics followed up their win over the Warriors with a tight road win over the Kings. The Lakers lost again to make it 4 in a row. What a mess that team is.
The Bulls got an impressive 108-107 victory over the 76ers and the Phoenix Suns are now 3 in a row, after a 107-96 win over the Knicks.
Only two games tonight and we’ll cover the biggest game on the board.
Thunder vs Blazers Betting Tips:
Both teams are 39-25 in the Northwest.
Blazers have been on a long road trip and will be happy to be home. They did a great job on the road trip with only a loss to the Raptors and a fall at the last hurdle to the Memphis Grizzlies.
A long road trip can tire a team out and while I love the Blazers and came into this article ready to tip them, I’m swayed by the Thunder.
The Oklahoma City Thunder are stumbling lately and just after they beat the Memphis Grizzlies, they were thumped by the Timberwolves. Paul George is back and I think that’s a good sign and a big boost to them.
The Thunder also have a very tough game against the Clippers tomorrow night and that’s a red alert game on the schedule. That means this game is that much more important for them to win.
I just think after that road trip, Blazers may be a bit complacent while the Thunder will be the more hungry team.
