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: Boston Celtics @ Atlanta Hawks
Date: Friday, April 20th, 7:00 ET
Location: Phillips Arena, Atlanta, GA
NBA Betting Odds: No Line
NBA TV Schedule: ESPN

We’re big fans of the Hawks in this game. We know that Boston has played well of late, and we also know that it has done well in this series historically, but we just don’t think that it is going to get the job done on the road in a game that is going to likely end up determining which team is going to have home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs when these two inevitably meeting. We just don’t trust that the Celtics are going to take this one totally seriously, and it is going to feel like Game 7 of the NBA Finals to the Hawks, who badly need to have the edge on the home court to have a shot of winning a series with Boston in all likelihood.

NBA Pick: Atlanta Hawks

NBA Matchup: Los Angeles Lakers @ San Antonio Spurs
Date: Friday, April 20th, 9:30 ET
Location: AT&T Center, San Antonio, TX
NBA Betting Odds: San Antonio -6.5
NBA TV Schedule: ESPN

Just three days ago, we backed the Lakers against the Spurs, knowing that Kobe Bryant was likely going to be out of the lineup. The end result saw LA get smashed on its home court, and now, Bryant is going to push his way back on the court in this one. He knows that this is a brutally important game for his team if it wants to win the Pacific Division, and if there is one thing that Kobe hates in this world more than anything else, it’s losing. You know that he isn’t going to go lightly in this one, especially after getting crippled at home just three nights ago. Take the Lakers and the points, but we don’t think that we are going to need them. LA should win this game outright in our eyes.

NBA Pick: Los Angeles Lakers +6.5
