On Wednesday, 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 Wednesday!

NBA Matchup: Boston Celtics @ Oklahoma City Thunder
Date: Wednesday, February 22nd, 7:00 ET
Location: Chesapeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma City, OK
NBA Betting Odds: No Line
NBA TV Schedule: ESPN

There’s no line yet in the clash between the Thunder and the Celtics, but assuming that that line comes out lower than double digits, there is no doubt that we are going to be backing the hosts. The offense for OKC is just out of this world at times, especially when you consider just how well Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and Serge Ibaka are playing at the moment. Boston’s big problem is that it will be without Rajon Rondo, who is suspended for this one. Brandon Bass, Chris Wilcox, Jermaine O’Neal, and Kevin Garnett could all be out of the fold in this one as well. If that turns out to be the case, there just aren’t enough bigs to body with Durant, and without Rondo, the guards aren’t there to keep up with Westbrook. This is just a bad spot to end the first half of the season for the Celtics.

NBA Pick: Oklahoma City

NBA Matchup: Los Angeles Lakers @ Dallas Mavericks
Date: Wednesday, February 22nd, 9:30 ET
Location: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX
NBA Betting Odds: Dallas -4.5
NBA TV Schedule: ESPN

Dallas is playing tremendous ball right now, and the only team that has been able to stop it since the beginning of the month is the New York Knicks, who are also playing fantastic ball at the moment. The Lakers are winning games, but they just don’t feel like one of the elite teams in the league this year. This was really the scene of the crime, where the Mavs swept away LA from the playoffs in shocking manner last year, and now, though the Lakers won the first meeting of these two teams, we just don’t see it happening. The inner turmoil that is going on in Tinseltown right now is going to be too much to overcome against a very workmanlike Dallas squad on Wednesday.

NBA Pick: Dallas -4.5
