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: Miami Heat @ New York Knicks
Date: Sunday, April 15th, 1:00 ET
Location: Madison Square Garden, New York, NY
NBA Betting Odds: Miami -3
NBA TV Schedule: ABC
The Heat and the Knicks are going to be squaring off in one of the most important games that we have had in quite some time. Sure, in terms of wins and losses and the standings, the clash isn’t going to really mean anything to Miami, as it is going to be the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs regardless. That being said, it is just 13-10 in its last 23 games, and it would really like to get back on track before going into the postseason. New York is hot, and Carmelo Anthony is really tearing it up at the moment. If he can get going again in this one, this is a game in which the Knicks can take, take in a big time way, and send a real message to a very possible first round opponent that the road to the second round of the playoffs isn’t going to be all that easy.
NBA Pick: New York +3
NBA Matchup: Dallas Mavericks @ Los Angeles Lakers
Date: Sunday, April 15th, 3:30 ET
Location: Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA
NBA Betting Odds: No Line
NBA TV Schedule: ABC
There is still no line for this game, knowing that the status of Kobe Bryant is still very much so up in the air. Bryant is still battling a shin injury, and he is likely to sit out again. This isn’t the end all, be all game for the Lakers, but it could be for Dallas. Remember that the Mavs aren’t nearly in a position yet where their playoff spot is guaranteed in the tight Western Conference, and they have not fared well in this series. That being said, Andrew Bynum is playing like a man possessed right now, and he would love nothing more than to open up a can on the team that really embarrassed him last year in the playoffs. LA will continue to exact its revenge on the Mavs with a win on Sunday, even if Kobe isn’t out there.
NBA Pick: Los Angeles Lakers
