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!

NBA Matchup: Phoenix Suns @ Houston Rockets
Date: Friday, April 13th, 8:00 ET
Location: Toyota Center, Houston, TX
NBA Betting Odds: Houston -4
NBA TV Schedule: ESPN

The Rockets and the Suns both badly need this one, as they are both right in the thick of the fight at the bottom of the Western Conference playoffs. The importance level is clearly there for Phoenix, which is two games in the rears of the pack in the bottom of the West, as a loss in this one would make it quite hard over the course of the last seven games to get into the dance. Steve Nash is playing as well right now as any point guard in the league, and he really wants to make that one last push to try to get a title here in Phoenix. We don’t think that he is ultimately going to get this team into the playoffs, but we still think that the Rockets are overrated at this point. We just don’t see Goran Dragic, a man that was made playing behind Nash in Phoenix, getting the better of his protégé.

NBA Pick: Phoenix +4

NBA Matchup: Dallas Mavericks @ Portland Trail Blazers
Date: Friday, April 13th, 10:30 ET
Location: Rose Garden, Portland, OR
NBA Betting Odds: Dallas -2
NBA TV Schedule: ESPN

This is a really tough spot for the Mavericks to be in. They are playing on the road for the second straight night, and they have to go up against a Portland team that has been sitting at home and resting for the last day after playing nothing but home games of late. Sure, the Blazers are banged up, but they are still a great team here at the Rose Garden. The question in our eyes is whether someone aside from Dirk Nowitzki is really going to step it up and try to put this Dallas team on his back. We just don’t see it right now, and the Blazers know if they are going to make one last push for the playoffs, this is a game that they just can’t lose.

NBA Pick: Portland +2
