Boston @ Orlando

The Celtics are making their stops in Florida before returning home for a four-game set.

Boston has won nine games in a row and, as a result, have a four and a half-game lead in the Eastern Conference. They will look to build that lead further tonight against a Magic team that beat them twice in December.

Orlando went to the Garden for back-to-back games last month and shocked the Association with two wins. They will have a chance to pick up their third win against the Celtics with Brogdon and Smart out. Tatum should play, but he is dealing with a wrist injury.

This will be a tighter game than people anticipate, but a straight-up win for Orlando may be difficult as Banchero has not been playing his best ball. He’s recorded less than 20 points in his last six games, and in that stretch, he has averaged five rebounds per game. He will need a double-double to give his team a chance.

Orlando +8 (-110)
Banchero Over 5.5 Rebounds (-135)
Tatum Under 31.5 Points (-108)

Memphis @ Sacramento

After losing a devastating game against the Lakers on Friday, the Grizzlies’ 11-game winning streak was brought to an end. However, their woes wouldn’t stop there, as they would go on to Phoenix and lose to a battered Suns team.

They will try to bounce back tonight against the Kings.

The Kings recently fell to a similar fate, as they had a seven-game winning streak ended by the Suns. So both teams are looking to bounce back from losses against Phoenix.

The Grizzlies’ last three games were decided by a bucket; so the spread in this one is understandable.

Things are rough for Memphis right now, but it will get worse before it gets better. Sacramento residents can expect to see a bean in the sky tonight.

Sacramento (+100)
Ja Morant Under 27.5 Points (-104)
