Rockets, Bulls Highlights Relatively Quiet Thursday Night In NBA

Posted by Craig Parsons on 3/12/2014 9:36:24 PM

Thursday night isn’t a busy one in the NBA, and that is a good thing for us, as we can concentrate on the six teams in action as we break down which three will come out on top. The Chicago Bulls are in for a tough fight against the Houston Rockets as they continue to battle for a top-four seed in the Eastern Conference, and although they have played their best basketball at home, this isn’t a favorable match up.

Houston Rockets @ Chicago Bulls
Thursday, 7:00 PM ET

The last time these teams met was just before this past Christmas, with the Rockets cruising to a 109-94 victory at home. This one will be in Chicago, but don’t think the Bulls will have it any easier. Head coach Tom Thibodeau’s team has been able to grind out some notable wins this year, including their victory over the two-time defending NBA champion Miami Heat just a couple of days ago. However, Houston is a team that can match their size up front with Dwight Howard and Terrence Jones, and that takes away the Bulls’ biggest strength. The Rockets can put up points in bunches, and Howard, Chandler Parsons, James Harden, and Patrick Beverley each scored 15 points or more in the initial meeting. Chicago will fight hard to keep this one close for a while, but in the end it will be Houston that comes out on top.

NBA Betting Pick: Houston Rockets – 3.5

Milwaukee Bucks @ Atlanta Hawks
Thursday, 7:30 PM ET

The Hawks are fortunate to play in the Eastern Conference, as a 27-35 record that is good enough to sit eighth in the standings would have them fighting for 11 in the Western Conference. Atlanta has benefited from playing on the less-than-mediocre side, and that is why they are still three games up on the Detroit Pistons for the eighth and final spot. Next up, a date with a Milwaukee Bucks’ team that sits at the bottom of the conference with 13 wins. Milwaukee has just five road wins all year, so this is a must-win for this struggling Atlanta side.

NBA Betting Pick: Atlanta Hawks – 3.5

Los Angeles Lakers @ Oklahoma City Thunder
Thursday, 9:30 PM ET

The Thunder and Lakers aren’t even close in the West standings, but it was just this past Sunday that Los Angeles stole a 114-110 win over Oklahoma City at home. Jodie Meeks had a career-high 42 points, while Russell Westbrook had eight turnovers and missed a key lay up that really hurt them late in the game. Look for things to play out differently this time around, as Kevin Durant steps up and takes a bigger role, while Westbrook plays more under control. The Thunder can’t afford to play out of control come playoff time, and they should be able to bounce back at home on Thursday night.

NBA Betting Pick: Oklahoma City Thunder – 5.5
