Top NBA Betting Games of the Week

A Look at Tuesday Night NBA Games
Tuesday night we will see the San Antonio Spurs play in South Beach against the Miami Heat. The Spurs are 15-8 on the road, while Miami is 16-10 at home. The Spurs are 43-8 overall, which would be awesome if it was not for Golden State at the top of the league. LaMarcus Aldridge is playing at the top of his game, and will go against Chris Bosh. This should be a fun game at AmericanAirlines Arena on Tuesday night.
Also on Tuesday, the Houston Rockets are at the Golden State Warriors. The Rockets with a loss would drop to .500 on the season. Houston is coming off a terrible loss, in which James Harden turned the basketball over ten times. Harden needs to control the basketball, or Golden State will run all over the Rockets. The Warriors are 46-4, and eyeing that 72-10 record of the Chicago Bulls. This should see a ton of offense!
A Couple Great Wednesday Games to Watch
Wednesday – Kobe Bryant is playing in Cleveland against LeBron James for the final time. Kobe has played well, but the Lakers are terrible. The worst record in the Western Conference, with wins in just 11 of 54 games this season. The forward for the Lakers is scoring 17 points per game, but he will have a tough time against LeBron James. James leads the Cavaliers in everything offensively, including 25 points per game. The Lakers will have a tough task on Wednesday night at Quicken Loans Arena.
The Atlanta Hawks and Chicago Bulls have both struggled a bit, and will get together on Wednesday night. Atlanta lost back to back games to the Orlando Magic, and are now 30-24 on the season. The Hawks are under .500 in road games this season. For Chicago, they are on a two game losing streak, with road losses at Minnesota and Charlotte. The Bulls are coming off a 7 game road trip, and without Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler have a tough time scoring. Look for a sluggish game as both teams head to the All Star break limping a bit.
Final Game Before the All Star Break
Finally – the final day of the first half of the season – New Orleans is at the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Pelicans are running low on time on getting back towards .500. The Pelicans are 19-32, and even worse 6-20 on the road. That’s not good. They will face a Thunder team that is 24-5 at home. Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant going up against one of the worst defensive teams in the league could certainly be interesting. There is a look at the Top NBA Betting Games of the Week.
