NBA Preview: March 24 – The Sporting Base

NBA Preview: March 24
The Sweet Sixteen is the focus of the basketball world, but the West Coast NBA also has some very fascinating games on Friday. Let’s take a look.

Philadelphia 76ers @ Golden State Warriors – 10:00 p.m. ET

The 76ers are third in the Eastern Conference with 49 wins and 23 losses. The Warriors are sixth in the Western Conference with 38 wins and 36 losses.

My take:

Nobody is hotter right now than the Philadelphia 76ers. Their only loss in their last 10 games came Monday when they were beaten 109-105 in overtime by the Chicago Bulls. The 76ers got revenge on Wednesday, however, when De’Anthony Melton scored 25 points in Philadelphia’s convincing 116-91 win over Chicago. Normally, a trip to California is intimidating. I like the 76ers here at +5.5 and the Unders at 235. The 76ers have been under 235 in five of their last six games.

Phoenix Suns @ Sacramento Kings – 10:00 p.m. ET

The Kings are third in the West with 43 wins and 29 losses. The Suns are fourth in the West with 38 wins and 34 losses.

My take:

The Kings currently have the strongest offense in the NBA at 120.9 points per game. The fact that they average 118.5 points against each other is why you take the lead with 239. The Kings are playing slightly better basketball (6-4 in the last 10) than the 5-5 Suns at the moment. So I think the kings here need to be chosen at -3.5.

Oklahoma City Thunder @ Los Angeles Lakers –10:30 p.m. ET

The Thunder and Lakers have identical records of 36 wins and 37 losses and sit eighth in the Western Conference.

My take:

The Lakers clinched an impressive 122-111 win over the Suns on Wednesday and are going into the game full of momentum. Take the Lakers at -5.5 here, as the Thunder are in the second game of a straight game and were ineffective in a 127-105 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday. I also like the over at 232.5 because the Thunder defensively may not have the attention to detail.
