This is the time to win the title. Not sure if they will have the better opportunity in the future. Warriors struggling, Rockets are without deep bench, Nuggets still in progress and need to improve on their young players and the last contender IMO Raptors but they need to stay healthy.

I think they'll be around for long, Giannis Brogdon and Middleton are all young so there's definitely time for them to deliver it if not this year. Giannis hasn't even hit his prime tbh which is wild

I'd be willing to back a Spurs win tonight at 2.05. They're at home against OKC who we know are suspect against top teams due to inability to close as Russ tends to do too much but in general Spurs are playing so well at Home right now that these odds make no sense. Rudy Gay is out but still I don't think they should be underdogs against OKC at home

LeBron James (left groin) is increasing his on-court activity and will have another injury update on Jan. 16.

LeBron was already ruled out for Friday, but this means he'll also miss home games on Sunday (vs. Cleveland) and Tuesday (vs. Chicago). Depending upon the next injury update, he could be activated for road games on Jan. 17 and 19.

What a ridiculous game by OKC and San Antonio 😲 LaMarcus Aldridge was absurd

Giannis Antetokounmpo is out against the Washington Wizards tonight!

Bookies still got Bucks as 1.5 favourites, but I'm kinda tempted to go with the Wizards who are 9-2 in their last 11 Home games and playing well since Wall been out with Beal carrying

Utah Jazz will be without any actual Point Guards tonight as Exum, Rubio, Neto and Allen are all OUT against the Lakers

Given that Utah don't have that playmaker now, I think the newly confident , still LeBron-less but decent looking again Lakers could steal one here and at 3.90 (Unibet) are worth the look. Low stakes high reward pick

Joel Embiid is Ruled OUT against the Atlanta Hawks for the 76ers tonight!
