2014 NBA Betting – Picks For Games On Friday, March 14

Posted by Craig Parsons on 3/13/2014 7:44:27 PM

Game 1: Memphis Grizzlies @ Toronto Raptors - Friday, March 14

The Memphis Grizzlies are headed in the right direction. Earlier this week, they managed to displace the Phoenix Suns for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference, which is no small feat, given that the eighth-place team in the West is 10 games above the break-even point. It takes some doing to be a playoff team in the West, something that cannot be said for most of the Eastern Conference. Memphis has simply been its normal self, playing defense and rebounding extremely well with its size, width and power in the middle, thanks to Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol. The Grizzlies remain a team in need of perimeter shooting, but their defense is usually able to cover up their offensive weaknesses. Expect Memphis to overpower Toronto and to continue to move upward in the standings. 

NBA Betting Pick: Memphis

Game 2: Phoenix Suns @ Boston Celtics - Friday, March 14

When the Phoenix Suns last played the Boston Celtics, the Suns established a lead before Boston made a big run in the second half. Phoenix eventually held on for the win, but the Celtics earned the Suns' respect. That's going to be part of the background for this game, which the Celtics will host after having traveled to Arizona earlier in the season. Phoenix has certainly lost ground in the Western Conference over the past month or so while Memphis has risen in the standings. The Suns' youthfulness has stood out. Players aren't as fresh as they were, and the toll of the long season seems to be emerging on the roster. This is something that has also happened to the Portland Trail Blazers over the past month. This is not a gimmie game for Phoenix, but the fact that Boston pushed the Suns earlier in the season should really help the visitors from Arizona to win this game on the road.

NBA Betting Pick: Phoenix

Game 3: Denver Nuggets @ Miami Heat - Friday, March 14

For The Miami Heat just lost their third game of the season to the Brooklyn Nets, falling to 0-3 against Paul Pierce and the rest of a motivated team that wants to beat Miami more than anything else. On one level, this should definitely concern the Heat. How can a team as good as Miami lose three out of three times to an opponent that is barely over .500 in a bad conference? Just about everyone in the NBA thought that Miami wasn't going to lose to Brooklyn a third time this season, but the Heat couldn't really change the patterns in that matchup, and there has to be at least some concern in the Miami camp as a result.

Yet, this is only the middle of March. It's not the playoffs, and the Heat are not playing at full intensity. It's true that Miami is definitely struggling right now, having lost four out of five, but the only thing more surprising than a four out of five skid is for that pattern to become five out of six. Take the Heat here.

NBA Betting Pick: Miami
