OKC - 6 vs Knicks - I like the Thunder in this spot. Knicks had a huge comeback in the 4th to beat the Pistons and now go back home and face a Thunder squad who just beat up the Lakers on Tuesday and had a days of rest on Wednesday. More importantly, this will be the Knicks fourth game in five nights and this will be there 2nd back to back, with there only day off being on Tuesday. Knicks are tired, and with that comeback against Detroit, I dont think that helps. Last 4 games for New York, 3 wins 1 loss, that loss coming against the heat, but the 3 wins coming against sub par teams in Detroit, Cleveland, and Washington. Dont like this spot for New York and we all know Durant and company love the spot light at MSG. With or without Melo, I like OKC -6.

Nuggets -4 vs Clippers - Clippers just blewout the Bucks at home and now they travel to one of the most difficult places to play in Denver and are 4 pt dogs. What clipper fan wouldn't mind taking 4 pts after a blowout vs Milwaukee,,,seems too easy right,,,exactly.....dont fall for it. Denver is that good at home and they will roll Thursday night. Denver has won 7/8 last games and they are rolling right now. With a days rest and catching a Clips team who will be coming into town on a b2b will be tough. Denver is favored for a reason against a team that has a better record overall, etc. That wont matter here. Denver -4 here

I have a question fellas.....Currently the Nuggets are -4 vs the Clipps, but if linesmakers/vegas made the line Clippers -4 instead...how would that change your perception of the game...would you think Clips is the play...or Nuggets is still the play no matter what if they are a dog or a favorite

Denver is the play anyway. will it be a dog, or not, it's still Denver. clips overrated right now. they have the good record, they have good players, but still they don't have the game at high level to compete with top teams like OKC, MIA, SAS. Denver already beat them at home once this season. They will do it again tomorrow.

It's NOT always too good to be true.

OKC is the correct player tomorrow. If it doesn't cover, that's bad luck. I'd play OKC up to -10. The knicks are over-rated and had to stifle off a come back from the horrible pistons tonight. Not to mention Melo is banged up even if he DOES play.

I'd also take Denver in either situation, they deserve to be -4. Strong, strong home team playing with rest against a team that was challenged by Milwaukee up to late third quarter.

Taking both favorites tomorrow.

Wouldn't that be a surprise why the line is that low? Denver should be a 6.5 fave given they have blown the Clips last time plus you said it yourself, they are catching the Clippers on a back to back. Somethings telling me this line is fishy and sharp. Better to wait for a 2H line.

I'd pick Denver. Clippers' Hill and Billups aren't shooting well. If Chris Paul and Blake Griffin chokes then it will be over for them. Bledsoe will turn the ball over a lot. He's a score-first point guard and doesn't make offensive plays for his teammates that much unlike Chris Paul.

I'd stay away from Thunder vs Knicks. Melo is the main reason why the Knicks are losing games lately. He's in a happy-trigger mode, he shoots the ball too much and only passes if he's in trouble leading to a huge amount of turnovers. A Melo-less Knicks is more of a threat which means more attempts for Novak, Felton and Smith.
