  • BookMaker.eu The best team in the NBA has resisted long losing streaks, which is why the Boston Celtics are the best. They put an end to their season-high tying three-game skid beating the Lakers in overtime on Saturday. With a few days to savor the victory the Cs welcome Atlantic Division rival Brooklyn Nets in the first of ESPN’s Wednesday night doubleheader. The teams met just a few weeks ago with Brooklyn playing its first game since Kevin Durant was shelved with a knee injury. Things didn’t go well for ... 

  • BookMaker.eu With both teams playing winning basketball and poised to make the postseason, the neighborhood battle between the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets has a different feel. After an initial slump following the loss of leading scorer Kevin Durant, the Nets adjusted with a pair of payout road victories over Utah and Golden State. The Knicks also ended a recent slide beating Cleveland on Tuesday stopping a four-game SU and ATS losing streak. Brooklyn cruised to its eighth straight win in the series, 1... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Phoenix Suns haven’t been the same since their second-round playoff loss to the Dallas Mavericks last season. Losing Game 7 of that series at home by 33 points apparently left a lasting impression on them. The Suns boasted the best record in the NBA last year, however, injuries beset the club leaving them below .500 until a recent three-game winning streak got them back to the breakeven point. Following a seven-game winning streak that moved them up the Western Conference standings, the Mavs... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Boston Celtics have one last chance to avenge a loss to the Golden State Warriors in last season’s NBA Finals and to make up for a defeat earlier in the campaign when the clubs conclude the season series Thursday inside the TD Garden. Since a nine-game winning streak back in November, the Celtics have topped the NBA standings. Golden State’s inability to win on the road has kept them hovering around .500, though they started their current trip with two wins in three games nearly matching their road win total from the previous 19 games. The Dubs won and covered a fourth straight when the clubs met in early December. The contest between the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics takes place at 7:30 p.m. ET on Thursday, January 19, 2023 from TD Garden in Boston, MA and will air live on TNT.

  • BookMaker.eu There was a time not long ago when a midseason game between the Atlanta Hawks and Dallas Mavericks didn’t garner much attention. And it’s doubtful the matchup would air on a national broadcast. A few dynamic players can change the narrative and he we are, with two of the brightest young stars in the game going head to head. Luka Doncic has done things this season no other player in NBA history has leading the Mavs to a top-six in the West. The Hawks have relied on Trae Young to keep them in a pl... 

  • BookMaker.eu Teams expected to contend for the Eastern Conference throne tangle on a national stage Saturday afternoon when the Milwaukee Bucks visit the Miami Heat on ABC. Miami edged Giannis and Co. for the top seed in the conference last season, but neither reached its ultimate goal of the NBA Finals. The Heat have picked things up after a rough start slowly climbing the East standings. They have work to do, though, currently sitting in a play-in spot, but the Heat are just 4.5 games out of a top-4 in the... 

  • BookMaker.eu With Kevin Durant playing at an MVP level, the Brooklyn Nets raced up the Eastern Conference standings pulling within a game of the Boston Celtics for the overall lead with Sunday’s win over Miami. The win was the 14th in 15 games for the Nets, but it came with a price. Durant was lost for what’s expected to be several weeks with a knee injury leaving Brooklyn without its leading scorer for the Atlantic Division showdown. Boston won the first meeting between the teams, 103-92, covering the 2.5-p... 

  • BookMaker.eu After the last few weeks Luka Doncic had the NBA should polish the MVP trophy for him. We haven’t yet reached the midway point of the season and the Dallas Mavericks are clinging to a top-six in the Western Conference, but where would the Mavs be without Luka? Doncic closed the week with 51 points in a win over San Antonio, his third 50-point game in the last five and the team’s sixth straight triumph. The Mavs will be tested by the NBA-best Boston Celtics when the two clash in the first game of... 

  • BookMaker.eu With their Christmas Day win over Milwaukee, the Boston Celtics moved back into first place in the Eastern Conference closing the week with a pair of victories after an uncharacteristic three-game home losing streak. Boston looks to close out its seven-game homestand on a positive note taking on the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday. The clubs met just a few weeks ago in LA with the Clips victorious 113-93, their third straight win and cover in the series.The NBA contest between the Los Angeles C... 

  • BookMaker.eu We get another postseason rematch on Christmas Day when the Memphis Grizzlies visit the Golden State Warriors. The Griz finished three games better than the Warriors last season but lost a second round series to the champs in three games. While the Dubs have struggled around .500 most of this season the Grizzlies seized control of the West thanks to a seven-game winning streak. That run ended with an upset loss to Oklahoma City, but they closed last week a game clear of Phoenix and Denver. The W... 

  • BookMaker.eu It’s a tradition unlike any other, no wait, that’s used for a different game. But it’s true; NBA basketball on Christmas Day is a tradition that features the best players and teams from around the league. We certainly get a good one in this Eastern Conference heavyweight matchup when the Milwaukee Bucks visit the Boston Celtics. This could easily be an East final preview with both teams entering the Holidays perched atop the conference standings. The Celtics faded a bit after a scorching start a... 

  • BookMaker.eu If the defending champion Golden State Warriors want to climb back to the top of the Western Conference standings this current road trip would be a good start. The Dubs have had a hard time winning on the road this season and they will be tested during the trek that has them taking on the Philadelphia 76ers in the middle stop of the six-game excursion. This is also the third game in four nights for the Warriors after stops in Milwaukee and Indiana to open the season-long trip. The Dubs started t... 

  • BookMaker.eu Two of the NBA’s best go at it on Wednesday when the Boston Celtics visit the Phoenix Suns. Both sides had a little hiccup but still closed the week leading their respective conference. The Celtics had their five-game winning streak snapped by Miami losing for only the second time in 16 games. They enter the week with the best record in the Association. The Suns saw their six-game streak end at the hands of the Houston Rockets, who rallied from 16 points down to earn the upset as a 11.5-point do... 

  • BookMaker.eu Is it too early to say the Los Angeles Lakers are embarking on a season-defining road trip? Stuck near the bottom of the Western Conference standings and with just two road victories in eight tries, the Lakers open a season-long six-game trek Friday against Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks. LA dropped its first six away games before beating up on the lowly Spurs in consecutive days. They have played better lately but the aging stars continue breaking down making it difficult to put ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Is there any team hotter than the Boston Celtics in the NBA right now? That’s a rhetorical question since we already know the answer. The Cs closed last week hitting 20 triples in a 117-109 win over New Orleans running their streak to nine straight going 6-3 ATS. We’ll find out a lot more about the Dallas Mavericks on this three-game road swing that takes them to Toronto and Milwaukee following Wednesday’s stop in Beantown. The Mavs boast the NBA’s best scoring defense while the Celtics average ... 

  • BookMaker.eu A blistering start to the season for the Milwaukee Bucks has been tempered by losses in three of four games following a 9-0 opening. You have to take the good with the bad over the course of a long season and the Bucks have been dealt some bad with Jrue Holiday joining Khris Middleton and Pat Connaughton on the shelf. The shorthanded Bucks clash with the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday in a rematch of a game played during the opening week of the season won by the Bucks 90-88, their second straight in the series and eighth in the last nine meetings. The contest between the Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers takes place at 7:30 p.m. ET on Friday, November 18, 2022, from Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA and will air live on ESPN.

  • BookMaker.eu Turning their road woes around won’t be easy for the Golden State Warriors, who visit the Phoenix Suns for the second time this season. The defending champs lost their first six road games starting with a 134-105 pounding from the Suns back in October and things never really got any better. The Dubs were defeated by Detroit and Orlando among other clubs on a recent road trip that dropped their away slate to 0-6 SU and 1-5 ATS. The Suns return home after a long road trip looking to improve on the... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Minnesota Timberwolves and Memphis Grizzlies will tangle for the first time since last season’s surprising first-round playoff series, which the Griz won in six games. The young core of the Griz came together last season matching a franchise record with 56 regular season wins raising expectations for 2022-23. A playoff run last season and new additions to the roster have also increased the expectations in the Twin Cities, but a 13-point home loss to the Knicks on Monday dropped them below .5... 

  • BookMaker.eu It might not be the best division in the NBA but the Atlantic has to have the most drama and dysfunction. And for a change the New York Knicks aren’t involved. However, in many ways they still are the Knickerbockers. Following a promising start to the season they dropped four of five games, including a contest with Boston where they allowed a team record 27 three-pointers. To relieve themselves of the Kyrie Irving situation the Nets are finding solace on the court. Under interim coach Jacque Vaughn they put together their first winning streak of the season beating Washington and Charlotte on the road. The contest between the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets takes place at 7:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, November 9, 2022, from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY will air live on ESPN.

  • BookMaker.eu Following a six-game homestand that yielded positive results, the Milwaukee Bucks hit the road for just the second time this season and first since opening night when they tangle with the new-look Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night. Milwaukee’s 110-108 win over Detroit on Halloween night extended their season-opening winning streak to six games leaving the Bucks as the only unbeaten team just a weeks into the 2022-23 NBA season. At this point I think the Wolves are just happy to play someone... 

  • BookMaker.eu If the first meeting of the season between the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers is any indication the reigning Eastern Conference champions are in for another workout. The teams met last week in the Garden with the Cavs getting 41 points each from their starting backcourt of Donovan Mitchell and Caris LaVert in a 132-123 overtime victory. It was the fourth straight win and payout for the Cavs after a season-opening loss to Toronto.The contest between the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavali... 

  • BookMaker.eu After drama-filled offseason for both clubs the New Orleans Pelicans and Phoenix Suns are happy to get the season started. And there’s a lot at stake for the Suns after their flameout in last season’s playoff followed by a summer of uncertainty with DeAndre Ayton and the black cloud of ownership. Lost in all this is the fact that the Suns still have the pieces in place that carried them to the best record in the entire NBA last season and the NBA Finals the season before that. Making their first playoff appearance in four seasons, New Orleans put up a good fight before losing the first round series to Phoenix in six games. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Brooklyn Nets aren’t getting the kind of action they were at this time last year when some had them as the favorite to win the O’Brien Trophy. It’s a different looking club but they still have Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving to go along with a rejuvenated Ben Simmons making them a legitimate threat in the Eastern Conference. The Nets will go as far as that trio takes them and they played well against Toronto to pick up their first win of the young campaign. The hierarchy in the East will be te... 

  • BookMaker.eu We’ll get a good look at the Philadelphia 76ers in the first few days of the season as they look to get to where their first two opponents had recently been. After opening the 2022-23 campaign against the Eastern Conference champion Celtics they open the home portion of their schedule on Thursday against the 2021 NBA champion Milwaukee Bucks. Trusting the process has gotten the Sixers to near the top of the East with five straight playoff appearances, though they failed to reach the conference final in any of them. The contest between the Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers takes place at 7:30 p.m. ET on Thursday, October 20, 2022, from Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia and will air live on TNT. BookMaker.eu will have odds for every game on the Thursday NBA schedule. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Golden State Warriors begin defense of their NBA title with a matchup against one of their biggest rivals when they host LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers in the season opener on Tuesday. It wasn’t that long ago when the Lakers were in this position after claiming the title in 2020, but the downward spiral resulted in a first round playoff exit the following season and completely missing the postseason last year. It’s doubtful a new coach can resurrect the club with Russell Westbrook still hanging around and James getting up in age. It’s unlikely we see a hangover from the Dubs, who earned their fourth title in eight seasons and they are near the top of the futures board entering the new campaign. The contest between the Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors takes place at 10 p.m. ET on Tuesday, October 18, 2022, from Chase Center in San Francisco and will air live on TNT. BookMaker.eu will have odds for every game on the Tuesday NBA schedule. ...
