The 76ers came out fast and furious last night and racked up a big 41-27 lead after the first quarter. Unfortunately the Knicks looked shell shocked after that and couldn’t get back in the game.
I’m looking forward to the end of November as this month has been a bit rocky and we’re about 6% below a winning ratio. Not that a new month magically changes things but it does seem to always give a fresh perspective. Not sure why that is but bring on Saturday.
In the meantime we’ve got two days left in November. Tonight sees three games on the board with the Warriors vs Raptors, Lakers vs Pacers and Clippers vs Kings.
Biggest underdogs tonight are the Golden State Warriors. There’s a sentence I didn’t expect to type for this season.
Vin takes charge of the tips from Friday through Monday so let me try and end November personally on a winning note.
Kings vs Clippers Betting Tips:
The Sacramento Kings come into this one on the back of a two game losing streak. They lost 117-116 to the Warriors and were blown out 112-133 by the Jazz.
They haven’t lost three games in a row all season long and I don’t think it will happen here either. Clippers have a great record in Sacramento but are on the 2nd leg of a back to back and I think that will trouble them.
They have a lot of depth of course but this is going to be an incredibly fast paced game and I think that will wear on them. I know they did a good job of player management last night probably to prep for this game but I just think Kings have what it takes to get the victory here. Or at worst, keep it extremely close. This should be a team motivated to end this losing run.
I’m taking Kings +2.5.
