YESTERDAY 11:22 AM

The Wolves have already beaten the Clippers twice this season, each time by six points. But Blake Griffin didn't play in either of those games -- he's averaging 20.6 ppg and 9.2 rpg since returning from a concussion -- and Lou Williams was still coming off the bench. L.A. has found its form and while I really like Minnesota this year, I like the Clippers here as the home dog. Take the points.

Denver whipped the Trail Blazers 102-85 in Portland, but Damian Lillard did not play in that one. He comes in red-hot and so does his team, which is gunning for its first four-game win streak. Portland has covered seven of its last 10 visits to Denver, and I like the Blazers to better that trend Monday night. The Nuggets remain weak at point guard; that should cost them here.

Boston has beaten the Magic six straight times, but this line is a little steep considering how competitive Orlando has been lately. Grab the points.

The Spurs are 19-2 at home, but this is too many points. Indiana beat San Antonio 97-94 back in October; that was the Pacers' fourth straight cover in this series. Take the points.

The Nets have covered four straight road games and I like them to be very competitive Sunday in Detroit. D'Angelo Russell should make a decent contribution today. Back Brooklyn over the Pistons, who have dropped four in a row.
