Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

American Airlines Arena | 12:00pm AEDT

Russell Westbrook hopes to get in on the fun when the visiting Washington Wizards go for a two-game sweep of the Miami Heat on Friday. While Westbrook was resting on the second night of a back-to-back, Bradley Beal scored 32 points in a 103-100 win Wednesday in Miami. The decision broke a tie in the loss column between last year’s Eastern Conference champs (7-14) and a club (5-13) that failed to make the playoffs last season. Westbrook is coming off two of his best games of the season, a season-high 41-point explosion in a win over the Brooklyn Nets and a triple-double (17 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists) in a loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. The COVID-19 stricken Heat had basically all hands on deck Wednesday, then saw a 10-point halftime advantage disappear when they added just 35 points in the second half. Miami also lost Avery Bradley to a calf injury. Two players who missed significant action during the team’s COVID-19 mess, Tyler Herro (20) and Jimmy Butler (19), combined for 39 points in the loss. The Heat had won 128-124 at Washington on Jan. 9, with Herro going for 31 and Butler 26. The Heat have lost seven of eight; the Wizards have won two of three.

Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

Staples Center | 2:00pm AEDT

For the first time since 2004, a meeting between the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers will not have Doc Rivers involved as a head coach. Rivers, now the coach of the Philadelphia 76ers, can only watch as the Clippers return home from a 4-2 East Coast road swing to face a Celtics team in the middle of a five-game West Coast run. The Clippers have won 11 of their last 13 and are on a six-game home winning streak. They enter off a 121-99 victory at Cleveland on Wednesday with Paul George scoring 36 points while making a season-high eight 3-pointers in nine attempts. Kawhi Leonard added 24 as the Clippers rebounded from a 124-120 defeat at Brooklyn on Tuesday. Los Angeles guard Patrick Beverley (knee) missed all six games of the trip and will sit again Friday. The Celtics are coming off a 116-111 defeat at Sacramento on Wednesday. Jayson Tatum had 27 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds. The Celtics were without point guards Marcus Smart (calf), Kemba Walker (rest) and Payton Pritchard (knee). Boston is 1-1 on its trip after a 111-107 victory at Golden State on Tuesday. The Celtics were 8-3 to open the season but are just 3-6 since.

Milwaukee Bucks v Cleveland Cavaliers

Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse | 11:30am AEDT

The Milwaukee Bucks will go for their third win in a row when they open a back-to-back set against the host Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday. Milwaukee is coming off a 130-110 win over the Indiana Pacers in which Giannis Antetokounmpo posted a triple-double with 21 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists. The 26-year-old Greece native is slightly down from his 2019-20 production, but the two-time MVP has season averages of 27.0 points, 11.2 rebounds and 6.0 assists. Bryn Forbes will try to stay hot for Milwaukee after pouring in a season-best 20 points on 8-for-15 shooting, including 4 of 7 from beyond the arc, against Indiana. Bobby Portis will try to stay strong off the bench after scoring 18 points and grabbing nine rebounds. Cleveland has lost three of its last four, including a 121-99 defeat to the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday. The Cavaliers are led by Collin Sexton with 24.3 points per game, but he is questionable with a neck injury. Cleveland remains without injured big men Kevin Love (calf) and Larry Nance Jr. (wrist). Cleveland center Andre Drummond’s status is dealing with a back injury. The teams have played once this season, with Milwaukee holding on for a 100-90 victory on Jan. 9.

Toronto Raptors v Brooklyn Nets

Barclays Center | 11:30am AEDT

Steve Nash will become only the second Canadian head coach to oppose the Toronto Raptors when his Brooklyn Nets host them Friday. Nash joins Jay Triano, a Canada native who served as the Phoenix Suns interim coach and faced the Raptors on two occasions. This is the first matchup of the season between the Raptors and Nets, both of whom hope to make a run in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Brooklyn has won five of its past six games, including a 124-120 decision over the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday night. Kyrie Irving led the way with 39 points on 15-for-23 shooting in the win, while Kevin Durant scored 28 and James Harden added 23. The Nets improved to 7-3 since Harden arrived via trade from the Houston Rockets. Toronto is coming off back-to-back wins over the Orlando Magic after losing the previous three games in a row. Fred VanVleet set a franchise record with 54 points and made a career-best 11 3-pointers in Tuesday’s 123-108 win. VanVleet leads the Raptors with a 20.4 scoring average, while Pascal Siakam ranks second at 19.2. Kyle Lowry ranks third with an average of 17.4 points. Toronto will be without talented defender OG Anunoby, who remains sidelined with a strained left calf.

New Orleans Pelicans v Indiana Pacers

Bankers Life Fieldhouse | 11:00am AEDT

The Indiana Pacers look to get back on track Friday when they open a two-game homestand against the New Orleans Pelicans in Indianapolis. The Pacers fell for the third time in four contests on Wednesday following a 130-110 loss at the Milwaukee Bucks. Domantas Sabonis answered matching a career-high 32-point performance in Indiana’s 134-116 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday by setting a new personal best with 33 points the following night. The All-Star forward, who had 12 rebounds versus the Bucks, also had a double-double (19 points, 11 rebounds) in the Pacers’ 118-116 overtime win at New Orleans on Jan. 4. Malcolm Brogdon sank the winning shot with 1.7 seconds left in overtime of that contest to cap a 21-point, 11-assist performance. Brandon Ingram scored 31 points and Zion Williamson added 24 and 10 rebounds for the Pelicans in that outing, while the latter led the way with 15 of his 28 points in the first quarter of New Orleans’ 123-101 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday. The win was a welcome sight for the Pelicans, who had lost 10 of their previous 13 games. New Orleans has lost three in a row and seven of 10 on the road this season.

Detroit Pistons v Phoenix Suns

Phoenix Suns Arena | 1:00pm AEDT

The Phoenix Suns will look for better play at home when they return to the desert for a seven-game stretch, starting with the Detroit Pistons on Friday. Phoenix is just 4-4 at home, losing three of its last four. The Suns will enter off a 123-101 defeat at New Orleans to close out a 2-1 trip that also included consecutive games at Dallas. Devin Booker scored 25 points Wednesday in his second game back from a hamstring issue. Phoenix was just 8 of 35 (22.9 percent) from 3-point range. Chris Paul was limited to 10 points and four assists in 25 minutes. Deandre Ayton had 13 points and 11 rebounds, the first time he was held under 13 boards since Jan. 11. The Pistons are 0-2 to start a road trip that was reduced to four games after a contest Monday at Denver was postponed. Detroit enters off a 117-105 defeat to a Utah Jazz team that has lost just once since Jan. 6. Jerami Grant had 27 points while Mason Plumlee had 17 points and 14 rebounds. Josh Jackson had 22 points. The Pistons have just five victories but they have home victories over both the Philadelphia 76ers and the Los Angeles Lakers since Jan. 25.

Chicago Bulls v Orlando Magic

Amway Center | 11:00am AEDT

Two skidding teams vie for a much-needed victory Friday when the Orlando Magic and Chicago Bulls open a two-game, back-to-back series in Orlando. The Magic have lost four straight and six of seven and are coming off Tuesday’s 123-108 home loss to the Toronto Raptors. Nikola Vucevic registered a double-double of 21 points and 18 rebounds to boost Orlando, while Evan Fournier (21 points), Cole Anthony (16) followed. Chuma Okeke scored 10 points and was among six Magic players in double figures. Okeke made his first appearance since Dec. 31 after missing 16 games with a bone bruise in his left knee. The Magic remain without Aaron Gordon, who injured his ankle in Sunday’s loss to Toronto and will miss at least a month. Chicago lost 107-103 to the New York Knicks on Wednesday, missing a chance to sweep a two-game home series while losing for the fourth time in five games. The Bulls were just 6 of 36 from 3-point range, as leading scorer Zach LaVine (24 points) missed each of his seven attempts from deep. Lauri Markkanen scored nine points after going for at least 30 in his two previous games. Otto Porter Jr. was held out with lower back spasms and is unlikely to play Friday.

Utah Jazz v Charlotte Hornets

Spectrum Center | 12:00pm AEDT

The Utah Jazz aim to record their 14th win in 15 outings on Friday when they continue their three-game road trip against the Charlotte Hornets. Jordan Clarkson (23 points) and Bojan Bogdanovic (21) combined to make 18 of 27 shots for 44 points to lead the Jazz to a 112-91 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday. The duo stepped up to lead Utah to a pair of wins over the Hornets last season. Bogdanovic scored 26 points to pace the Jazz to a 114-107 victory in Charlotte on Dec. 21, 2019 before Clarkson had 20 off the bench in a 109-92 win on Jan. 10, 2010. The season sweep was the second in a row for Utah. Former Jazz forward Gordon Hayward is enjoying a strong start to the season with the Hornets, averaging a team-best 22.9 points to go along with 5.3 rebounds and 3.9 assists. Hayward joined rookie LaMelo Ball in scoring 22 points on Wednesday as Charlotte saw its three-game winning streak come to a halt with a 118-111 setback to the Philadelphia 76ers. Ball has started the last two games in place of Terry Rozier, who is nursing a sprained ankle. Overall, the Hornets have lost five straight games against Utah.

Minnesota Timberwolves v Oklahoma City Thunder

Chesapeake Energy Arena | 12:00pm AEDT

The Oklahoma City Thunder tip off their second consecutive two-game series at home when they face the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday. The Northwest Division rivals will also square off Saturday in Oklahoma City. The Thunder salvaged a split with the Houston Rockets with a 104-87 victory Wednesday in a game that bore no resemblance to Monday’s 136-106 Rockets’ triumph. The Thunder watched the visitors pour in 28 3-pointers Monday before tightening the screws and allowing just 12 in the rematch. Kenrich Williams’ season-best 19 points off the bench helped Oklahoma City offensively in the absence of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (knee). He likely will be able to return and play at least one of the two games against the Timberwolves. Minnesota is hoping to get Karl-Anthony Towns back on the court at some point in the two-game set. He has missed 10 straight while dealing with COVID-19 issues. Towns is with the team on its five-game trip, but wasn’t activated for either of two losses at Cleveland or one at San Antonio. Minnesota has lost five of six, but the last two have been by a total of just five points. D’Angelo Russell has gone for 18 and 20 points in the first two games of the trip.
