The 7 game slate in the NBA on Tuesday night is headlined by a fantastic TNT double header which is capped off by the cross town rivalry between the Lakers and Clippers!
Check out our preview and betting tips for the key matchups of the night below.
NBA Tuesday Picks
Boston Celtics at Miami Heat
Miami Dade Arena, 7.30pm (ET)
The Celtics will wrap up their three game road trip on Tuesday night as they clash with the Heat from Miami. They are 1-1 on this trip, coming off a disappointing 15 point loss to the Magic on Monday which they will be desperate to bounce back from.
The Heat have been a dismal home team this season, maintaining just a 7-15-1 record against the spread at Miami Dade arena. They do, at least, have a full compliment of stars to call upon for what feels like the first time this season as they have battled injuries throughout.
Regardless of that fact, I like the Celtics to win this one on the road. The Celtics have lost their last three games in a row against the spread, they have not failed to cover in four straight games this season. Should be back on their game on Tuesday night.
LA Clippers at LA Lakers
Chase Center, 8.30pm (ET)
The headline game of the TNT double header sees the Lakers hosting their cross-town rival Clippers from 8.30pm. Both sides have won their last two games in a row and despite being in 6th and 12th place in the West respectively, they are seperated by just two games, giving this clash extra importance.
The Lakers are already without star center Anthony Davis, who has been missing for an extended period with a foot injury. They could also be without LeBron James, who is currently listed as questionable with ankle issues.
After both battling injuries all season so far, the Clippers finally have both of their stars in Paul George and Kawhi Leonard fit and firing. Hard to see them losing this one to the Lakers without AD and potentially LeBron if the Clippers continue to play they have over the last week.
