The five game slate in the NBA this Tuesday night is headlined by a big TNT double-header kicking off from 7.30pm. As always, we have you covered with a full preview and betting picks for the key games of the night below.
NBA Tuesday Picks
Golden State Warriors at New York Knicks
Madison Square Garden, 7.30pm (ET)
Consistently inconsistent is the best way to describe the season the Warriors are having to date in 2022-23. While their home record has been one of the best in the league at 12-2, they have been absolutely abysmal on the road, maintaining a league worst 3-14 record away from Oracle. They will be on the road once again on Tuesday night as they travel to the Garden to take on the Knicks.
They will make the trip to New York without star point guard Steph Curry, who is expected to miss the next month with a shoulder injury. That leaves the Warriors in a massive hole offensively, and with their defense already ranked a lowly 26th in the league, they could be set for a tough month.
The Knicks start as 4.5 point favourites at home and it’s hard to bet against them given the absence of Curry. They have no key players out of the line-up at the moment, whick should help them cruise to a win here as the Warriors continue to find their feet without their star point guard.
Memphis Grizzlies at Denver Nuggets
Ball Arena, 10.00pm (ET)
Fresh off one of the most dominant indivdual performances in recent history, Nikola Jokic will be back in action as he leads his Denver Nuggets at home against the Grizzlies. Jokic had a monster stat line of 40 points, 27 rebounds and 10 assists in the Sunday night win over the Hornets as the Nuggets moved to 18-11 on the season.
The Grizzlies sit a few rungs above them in the West, currently leading the conference with a 19-10 record. They have won 8 of their last 10 on the back of outstanding play from star point guard Ja Morant, who is averaging 26.7 points and 7.7 assists on the season.
The Nuggets start as 1.5 point underdogs at home and I’m siding with them at that line. They are 9-3 straight up at home this season while the Grizzlies are just 6-8 on the road. Back Denver to hold serve at home.
