On Sunday, 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 Sunday!
NBA Matchup: Philadelphia 76ers @ New York Knicks
Date: Sunday, March 11th, 12:00 ET
Location: Madison Square Garden, New York, NY
NBA Betting Odds: New York -2.5
NBA TV Schedule: NBA TV
The Knicks are laying points in this game, but we are really starting to wonder whether they have the better side or not in this one. There is just something about the way that this New York team is playing, and when Jeremy Lin isn’t doing those phenomenal things that he was doing a few weeks ago, the squad is only suspect. The Philly defense has the ability to really be smothering at times, and that will have to be frustrating for the Knicks, even now that they get to come back home after the Big East Tournament took over their building all week.
NBA Pick: Philadelphia -2.5
NBA Matchup: Boston Celtics @ Los Angeles Lakers
Date: Sunday, March 11th, 3:30 ET
Location: Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA
NBA Betting Odds: Los Angeles -6
NBA TV Schedule: ABC
The Celtics have been playing somewhat better ball of late, but they have a heck of a problem that they have to attack in this one. They are winless from an ATS standpoint on the road in eight straight games, and now, they have to start a West Coast trip right before the trade deadline, and games like this one might define the season. LA has been a great home team this year, and things are seemingly starting to come together just a bit. Kobe and the gang shouldn’t let down on Sunday on national TV.
NBA Pick: Los Angeles -6
NBA Matchup: Memphis Grizzlies @ Denver Nuggets
Date: Sunday, March 11th, 8:00 ET
Location: Pepsi Arena, Denver, CO
NBA Betting Odds: Denver -6
NBA TV Schedule: NBA TV
Don’t get overly caught up in the fact that the brackets are coming out, because once they are released, there is a great game on NBA TV to take in. Memphis and Denver are both starting to get hot, and they are both doing so at the right time. These games are almost always close. Three of the last five have been determined by three points or fewer, and all three came right down to the wire. That being said, we’re going to take the points in this one even though it was a short turnaround time for the Grizz from last night in Phoenix to here in the Rockies.
NBA Pick: Memphis +6
