Tuesday’s NBA Action Brings Numerous Desperate For Wins

Posted by Craig Parsons on 2/24/2014 10:01:01 PM

As teams continue to approach the 60 games played mark, the ones on the outside of the playoff picture are beginning to enter must-win territory. One of those teams are the Minnesota Timberwolves, who entered the year with high expectations but once again dealt with numerous injuries to key players that kept them from staying within the top eight spots in the Western Conference. The Timberwolves, along with other teams who are playing Tuesday night are entering the most crucial stretch of the 2014 season.

Minnesota Timberwolves @ Phoenix Suns
Tuesday February 25, 2014 – 9 PM ET
Odds: Suns -4.5

Like it or not, it’s time sports bettors recognize the Phoenix Suns as one of the better teams in the Western Conference right now. The Suns will be a tough opponent for the shorthanded Timberwolves as both teams like to score, but neither is very imposing down low. These teams matchup quite well, but the Suns hold the upper hand because they play a full 48 minutes each night, whereas the Timberwolves often start strong but are one of the worst teams in the league at finishing close games. Kevin Love continues to be dominant on the offensive side of the ball, as does Goran Dragic, but the Timberwolves can score on anybody and thus are my pick for this game.

Pick: Timberwolves

Portland Trail Blazers @ Denver Nuggets
Tuesday February 25, 2014 – 9 PM ET
Odds: Trail Blazers -7.5

The Denver Nuggets have lost seven of their last eight, and the reason why is a thin backcourt that is without both Nate Robinson and Ty Lawson. They brought in Aaron Brooks to handle the point guard duties until Lawson returns, but in his two games since joining the team Brooks has been inconsistent and cannot be relied upon to carry the team. The Portland Trail Blazers are shorthanded as well with LaMarcus Aldridge out with a groin injury, but that didn’t stop them on Sunday night from securing a come from behind victory over the Timberwolves thanks to Damian Lillard’s team high 32 points.

Pick: Trail Blazers

Orlando Magic @ Washington Wizards
Tuesday February 25, 2014 – 7 PM ET
Odds: Wizards -3

The Eastern Conference has quietly been getting better as the season has gone on, and one of the teams that’s been improving is the Washington Wizards. The Wizards are now at .500 on the year and it’s all thanks to John Wall and Bradley Beal who are averaging 19 and 16 points per game in the month of February respectfully. Wall is almost averaging a double-double in the month of February, and for those who haven’t seen him player recently you sure are missing out. He’s on his way to becoming one of the best point guards in the league, and against the Orlando Magic and Aaron Afflalo he will prove his worth by leading his Wizards to a convincing win.

Pick: Wizards
