NBA Tips – Wednesday, February 5, 2020
PELICANS VS BUCKS
Venue: Smoothie King Center | Start: 11:30am AEDT
The Milwaukee Bucks will look to build upon their best record in the NBA when they visit the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. Milwaukee has won 42 of 49 games this season, including its most recent 129-108 win over the Phoenix Suns to close out a three-game homestand. Giannis Antetokounmpo just missed a triple-double in the game as he finished with 30 points, 19 rebounds and nine assists. Khris Middleton added 25 points, eight rebounds and six assists while making 9 of 15 shots from the field and 3 of 5 shots from beyond the 3-point line. The Bucks have a firm grasp on the top spot in the Eastern Conference standings, and they will be favored against the home-team Pelicans. New Orleans is 20-30 on the season but has won three of its past four games to reinvigorate a weary fan base. Rookie forward Zion Williamson is averaging 19.5 points and 8.2 rebounds per game in his first six starts. Teammates Brandon Ingram (24.9 points per game) and Jrue Holiday (19.7) rank first and second on the Pelicans’ scoring list, respectively. New Orleans is 10-15 at home. Milwaukee is 19-4 on the road.
Win: Milwaukee Bucks
Line: Milwaukee Bucks -6.5
Total Points: Under 244.5
ROCKETS VS HORNETS
Venue: Toyota Center | Start: 12:00pm AEDT
The Houston Rockets will go for their third win in a row when they host the Charlotte Hornets on Tuesday night. Houston is coming off back-to-back wins over the Dallas Mavericks and New Orleans Pelicans. The Rockets’ most recent victory over the Pelicans was led by James Harden, who finished just short of a triple-double as he compiled 40 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists in 38-plus minutes. Harden made 12 of 24 shots from the field and 7 of 15 attempts from beyond the 3-point line. Russell Westbrook and Ben McLemore added 22 points apiece for Houston. Meanwhile, Charlotte will play on short rest after losing 112-100 against the visiting Orlando Magic on Monday night. Six Hornets players scored in double digits, but nobody touched 20 points. Veteran point guard Terry Rozier led the way with 18 points on 7-for-14 shooting, and Cody Zeller added 17 points on 7-for-13 shooting. Miles Bridges flirted with a double-double as he finished with 16 points and eight rebounds. This is the first of two meetings between the teams this season. They are scheduled to play again March 7 in Charlotte.
Win: Houston Rockets
Line: Charlotte Hornets

NUGGETS VS TRAIL BLAZERS
Venue: Pepsi Center | Start: 1:00pm AEDT
The Portland Trail Blazers will try to put together their fifth win in a row when they visit the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night. Three of Portland’s last four victories have come by double digits, including a 124-107 decision over the Utah Jazz in their most recent performance Saturday night. All-Star point guard Damian Lillard finished with a game-high 51 points on 17-for-29 shooting, including 9 of 15 from long range. Hassan Whiteside added a formidable presence in the paint with 17 points and 21 rebounds. Portland face a tough test on the road against Denver, which has won four of its past six games but is coming off a 128-123 overtime loss against the Detroit Pistons on Sunday afternoon. Nuggets big man Nikola Jokic recorded yet another triple-double with 39 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists in 39-plus minutes against the Pistons. Jokic leads Denver with 20.2 points per game this season, and Jamal Murray is second on the team with 17.6 points per contest. Denver is 2-0 against Portland so far on the season. The Nuggets held on for a 108-100 win on Oct. 23, and they followed up with a 114-99 win on Dec. 12.
Win: Denver Nuggets

LAKERS VS SPURS
Venue: Staples Center | Start: 2:00pm AEDT
The Los Angeles Lakers will continue the healing process on Tuesday when they face the San Antonio Spurs in just their third game since the tragic death of team legend Kobe Bryant. The Lakers returned to the court Friday after an emotional pregame ceremony in advance of a game against the Portland Trail Blazers. The Lakers lost that one but rebounded Sunday to earn a 129-113 victory at Sacramento. Despite an off-night shooting from the field, LeBron James had 15 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists in his 11th triple-double of the season. Anthony Davis had 21 points and has averaged 23.7 points in the five games since returning from a bruise near his tailbone that cost him five games. The Lakers are 2-0 against the Spurs this season, winning 103-96 at home Nov. 3 and 114-104 at San Antonio on Nov. 25. The Spurs will pay their second game in Los Angeles in two nights after falling 108-105 to the Clippers on Monday. LaMarcus Aldridge led San Antonio with 27 points, while DeMar DeRozan added 26. The Spurs were starting their season-long eight game road Rodeo Trip and won’t return home until Feb. 26. It is the last meeting of the season between the teams.
