NBA Picks Nov 12-18
Golden State Warriors at Houston Rockets
When: Thursday, Nov. 15 at 8:00 pm ET
Where: Toyota Center, Houston, TX
Analysis: On Nov. 8, Golden State suffered only it’s second loss this season. The Milwaukee Bucks dominated the Warriors 134-111. Golden State bounced back in their first game after the loss with a 116-100 win over the Brooklyn Nets.
The Warriors battle the Atlanta Hawks and L.A. Clippers before this matchup with Houston. Although Golden State should easily win both those games, they could find it tough to get the “W” against Houston in the Toyota Center on Thursday.
Steph Curry’s suffering from a groin injury that might sideline him this entire week. Even if he’s healthy, the Warriors have gotten off to such a strong start, coach Steve Kerr could rest Curry just to be safe.
Playing against a depleted Golden State squad, Houston should have no trouble winning and covering the spread if they tip-off the home favorite.
Pick: Houston Rockets
Toronto Raptors at Boston Celtics
When: Friday, Nov. 16 at 7:00 pm ET
Where: TD Garden, Boston, MA
Analysis: Based on the record, the best team in the NBA right now are the Toronto Raptors. As of Nov. 11, Toronto’s a blistering 12-1 straight up. The Raptors beat Boston 113-101 on Nov. 16.
They played that game in Boston just like where they’ll play this one. While the Celtics eventually should emerge as the team to beat in the Eastern Conference, Toronto’s too hot to ignore. Hopefully, the Raptors go off the big moneyline dog in this.
Toronto’s the play.
Pick: Toronto Raptors
Golden State Warriors at San Antonio Spurs
When: Sunday, Nov. 17 at 7:00 pm ET
Where: AT&T Center, San Antonio, TX
TV: NBA Net
Analysis: If Curry does play this week, he’s likely to play on Sunday against the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs have played well this season, but they don’t match up well with Golden State.
No team really does. Golden State shoots close to 42% from three while holding opponents to around 32% from three. The Warriors dominated the Nets with both Curry and Draymond Green on the bench.
One or both should paly on Sunday, making the Warriors an easy pick to cover as the slight road favorite.
Pick: Golden State Warriors
