On Friday, there are a handful of games on the basketball television schedule that we have circled that should be good ones. Check out our NBA picks for Friday!

We don’t have a line yet on this game, but we know exactly where we are going with it. We’ve been saying this all season long: We just don’t think that the Lakers are all that great. They were atrocious last night in Miami against the Heat without Dwyane Wade. The Magic aren’t fantastic either. Don’t be surprised if both of these teams decide while they’re here that they should talk about sending Dwight Howard to Tinseltown… but for now, Superman and his band in the City Beautiful should claim victory relatively easily.
NBA Pick: Orlando Magic
NBA Matchup: Minnesota Timberwolves @ Los Angeles Clippers

This game is still off the board as of 8:00 AM because of the Chris Paul injury situation. We think that the T’Wolves are the right play to make in this game regardless. They are 9-5 ATS on the season for a reason, and knowing that they are going to be catching at least a touchdown in this game makes them the right play for a game that we think they have the ability to win SU, even in Lob City.
NBA Pick: Minnesota Timberwolves
