I managed to hit the first leg of my NBA Parlay for Wednesday, but I came up a little short on the back end. The Philadelphia 76ers continue to beat down any non-elite team, and they hammered the Chicago Bulls 116-91 last night. Philadelphia started the game on a 17-0 run and never looked back, as the Sixers were up by 28 points at halftime. That led to Joel Embiid playing just 16 minutes, and James Harden didn’t even step on the court. Tobias Harris had a whopping +40 plus/minus as Chicago’s starting five managed to finish with just 35 total points.
Ja Morant’s return to Memphis was greeted with the appropriate amount of fanfare, and Memphis ended up beating the lowly Houston Rockets, but unfortunately, the Grizzlies couldn’t cover the 12-point spread by the NBA betting odds. Memphis didn’t play great defense as Houston shot over 51% from the field and finished with 125 points. Jaren Jackson Jr. and company were too much though as JJJ finished with 37 points and 10 rebounds.

Payout: $100 to win $264
There are a lot of NBA fans that are down on Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks, but the last time they made a coaching change they went on a tear. They rallied around Nate McMillan and ended up making it to the Eastern Conference Finals just two years ago with much of the same current roster. McMillan was fired and replaced by Quin Snyder in late February, and the Hawks are 6-7 since that point. However, Snyder is a good coach and it may be taking him some time to get through to this team.
Atlanta will have two full days of rest prior to its clash with Indiana on Saturday afternoon. The Pacers are trying to grab the last spot in the Play-In Tournament, and they do have some talent in the backcourt with Tyrese Haliburton, Buddy Hield, and rookie Bennedict Mathurin. However, this front court is not very talented, and the Pacers will have the disadvantage of playing in Boston on Friday night.
My second play for Saturday’s NBA slate will be on the best game of the day. The Western Conference leading Denver Nuggets will take on the Eastern Conference leading Milwaukee Bucks in a potential NBA Finals preview. Denver hit a little skid recently, but the Nuggets have since responded with consecutive wins over Brooklyn and Washington. They will have two days to prepare for this home game too, and that will help any players with nagging injuries.
Milwaukee must go on the road to face the Utah Jazz on Friday night prior to facing the Denver Nuggets on Saturday evening. The Bucks have the best player in the league in Giannis Antetokounmpo, but he might not play in the second game of a back-to-back so close to the end of the regular season.
