76ERS VS CLIPPERS

Venue: Wells Fargo Center | Start: 11:00am AEDT

The Philadelphia 76ers will go for their third win in a row when they host the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday night. Philadelphia is 2-0 to start a four-game homestand, with a 119-107 win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday night followed by a 118-111 win over the Chicago Bulls on Sunday evening. Furkan Korkmaz scored a team-high 31 points off the bench in the most recent outing, and Ben Simmons provided a triple-double with 19 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists. Simmons will look for another big performance against the Clippers, who will tip off against Philadelphia for the first time this season. The 23-year-old Australian is averaging 16.8 points, 7.9 rebounds and 8.3 assists in his third season on the court with the 76ers, not including the 2016-17 campaign in which he did not play because of injury. Los Angeles also is playing well with wins in four of its last five games, including a 133-92 rout against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday night. Lou Williams scored 25 points to lead the Clippers, and Paul George finished with 22 points while making 8 of 12 shots from the field and 5 of 8 attempts from 3-point range.

Win: Philadelphia 76ers
Line: LA Clippers +1.5
Total Points: Under 226.5

WIZARDS VS BULLS

Venue: Capital One Arena | Start: 11:00am AEDT

Two teams competing for a playoff spot despite sub-.500 records will meet when the Chicago Bulls visit the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night. Washington enters the contest with a half-game lead over the Chicago Bulls for the ninth spot in the Eastern Conference. The Wizards trail eight-place Orlando by three-and-a-half games, while Chicago sits four games back. Washington is wrapping up a six-game homestand in which it has gone 3-2 so far. However, the Memphis Grizzlies held on for a 106-99 win over the Wizards in their most recent game Sunday evening. Bradley Beal paces Washington with 29.1 points per game, and he will look for another big performance against a shorthanded Bulls squad. Chicago has lost five games in a row and is dealing with a multitude of injuries to key contributors such as Lauri Markkanen, Wendell Carter Jr., Kris Dunn and Otto Porter Jr. Zach LaVine is doing his best to carry the Bulls with a team-high 25 points in 54 starts. The Wizards are 0-2 against the Bulls so far this season, losing 110-109 in overtime at home Dec. 18 and losing 115-106 on the road Jan. 15.

Win: Washington Wizards
Line: Chicago Bulls +3.5
Total Points: Under 230.5

THUNDER VS SPURS

Venue: Chesapeake Energy Arena | Start: 12:00pm AEDT

The San Antonio Spurs won’t have much time to recover from a monumental collapse when they play Tuesday night at Oklahoma City in their final game before the All-Star break. San Antonio led by 23 points before suffering a 127-120 loss Monday night at Denver. LaMarcus Aldridge racked up 32 points for the Spurs, who’ve lost the first five games of what will be an eight-game stretch of road games. Aldridge led the team in scoring for the first time in a four-game stretch. The 120 points for the Spurs were their most in a game in their last six outings. San Antonio guard DeMar DeRozan didn’t play because of back spasms Monday night. The Thunder lost 112-111 to the Boston Celtics on Sunday at home, ending a four-game winning streak. Dariuz Bazley, a swingman, of the Thunder left that game with a knee sprain. Bazley and guard-forward Shai Gilgeous-Alexander are the only two players to appear in all 53 Oklahoma City games this season. Gilgeous-Alexander leads the Thunder in scoring with 19.6 points per game. The Thunder won 109-103 at home against San Antonio on Jan. 2 despite DeRozan’s 30 points, while San Antonio won 121-112 on Nov. 7. In Oklahoma City’s win, the Thunder had a season-low four turnovers.

Win: Oklahoma City Thunder
Line: San Antonio Spurs +6.5
Total Points: Under 220.5

PELICANS VS TRAIL BLAZERS

Venue: Smoothie King Center | Start: 12:00pm AEDT

The New Orleans Pelicans will try to keep it rolling regardless of the available lineup when they face the visiting Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night. Pelicans forward Zion Williamson missed Saturday’s game with a sore ankle as did New Orleans scoring leader Brandon Ingram. Still, the Pelicans won the game at Indiana, with Jrue Holiday picking up the slack with 31 points. Holiday, Williamson or Ingram have been the team’s top scorer in the seven games overall. Williamson has indicated that he plans to play Tuesday night. The Pelicans have scored at least 123 points in each of their last seven victories. The Pelicans won 102-94 against Portland on Dec. 23 in a game before Williamson made his NBA regular-season debut. Portland pulled off a 115-109 home victory against the Miami Heat on Sunday, with Damian Lillard scoring 33 points Lillard ranks third in the NBA with 29.9 points per game, leading his team in scoring in the last 16 games. The December game between the teams marked one of two Portland games in the last 24 that Lillard wasn’t the team’s top scorer. The Trail Blazers have won six of their last eight games, with the two losses both coming on the road.

Win: New Orleans Pelicans
Line: New Orleans Pelicans -2.5
Total Points: Undert 241.5

ROCKETS VS CELTICS

Venue: Toyota Center | Start: 1:30pm AEDT

The Boston Celtics will carry a seven-game winning streak into Tuesday night’s road game against the Houston Rockets. Boston is coming off a 112-111 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday afternoon, which marked the fourth win by single digits during the seven-game winning streak. Forward Jaylen Brown’s status is in doubt for the game because of a right ankle injury, but Jayson Tatum figures to help fill the void for the Celtics. Tatum learned Monday that he had been named NBA Eastern Conference player of the week for the first time in his three-year career. He leads the Celtics with 22.2 points per game on the season. Houston is trying to avoid a three-game skid after back-to-back losses against the Phoenix Suns and the Utah Jazz. Rockets forward Robert Covington will make his fourth appearance since joining the team just before the trade deadline. He is averaging 12.3 points per game and 6.0 rebounds per game while playing stellar defense in his first three contests. This is the first of two games between the Celtics and Rockets this season, with the latter scheduled for Feb. 29 in Boston.

Win: Houston Rockets
Line: Boston Celtics +2.5
Total Points: Under 230.5
