Spurs at Thunder—NBA pick is Oklahoma City Thunder +2.5. OKC returns home after winning four of five on their road trip. On that road trip the Thunder saw improvement shooting as they converted on 45.2% from the field. Three point defense was good limiting opponents to 31.6%. Just like last season the issue facing San Antonio is the play of their defense. Spurs are giving up 47.8% from the field and nearly 41% from three point range. OKC better in defensive efficiency. DeMar DeRozan is out Tuesday. Play Oklahoma City +2.5.

Indiana Pacers vs. Golden St Warriors NBA Pick Prediction 1/12/2021
Pacers at Warriors—Free pick is Golden St Warriors -2. Tough spot for the Pacers as they are on the back end of a back to back playing their third game in four nights. Huge injury for Indiana to TJ Warrant who contributed with 15 points per game, the fourth leading scorer for Indiana. TJ McConnel sat Monday to persona issues is a defensive presence for the Pacers and may be out in this spot. Warriors have won four of five. In that span they are shooting 46.5% with 41.2% from three while holding opponents to 42.4% shooting. Pacers defense has not been good in that span. Play Golden St -2.
Miami Heat vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Pick Prediction 1/12/2021
Heat at 76ers—NBA pick is Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers to play under the total of 209.5 points. Back to back for Philadelphia after held to 94 points to Atlanta in defeat. Both teams are depleted due to injuries and COVID. There is a possibility that both teams will play with the minimum. Going to continue with the under as I don’t expect either coach wanting a fast pace in this game with limited players. 76ers are also playing third game in four nights. Play Heat and 76ers under 209.5.

Jazz at Cavaliers—NBA free pick is Utah Jazz and Cleveland Cavaliers to play under the total of 208. Back to back and three games in four nights for Cleveland after being held to 91 points in a loss to Memphis. Both teams play at slow paces. Cavs are last in the NBA in offensive efficiency. Plus, a huge injury list for the Cavs. Utah has scored 100 or fewer points in three of the four games on this road trip. Play Utah and Cleveland under 208.
Denver Nuggets vs. Brooklyn Nets NBA Pick Prediction 1/12/2021
Nuggets at Nets—Free pick is Denver Nuggets and Brooklyn Nets to play over the total of 231 points. Denver has gone over in eight of their ten games this season. They sit near the top in the NBA in offensive efficiency but near the bottom in defensive efficiency. They are hitting on 49.4% from the field along with 37.3% from three but allowing 47.1% along with 38% from beyond the arc. No Kyrie for Brooklyn but Kevin Durant will play. There is talent surrounding Durant on that court and Brooklyn plays at a fast pace. Play Nets and Nuggets over 231.
