New Orleans 122 @ Golden St. 125 | 05/15 | 1:30 AM UTC

New Orleans -1

LOSS

ANALYSIS: I think the Pelicans' game plan and attention to detail has been better because they know they can't go up and down and score without their two top superstars. I think this is a lower possession, lower scoring game and that favors the dog. Give me the Pelicans here.

Orlando 97 @ Philadelphia 122 | 05/15 | 12:00 AM UTC

Orlando +14

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Sixers were embarrassed on national TV vs. the Heat on Thursday. Now, on a quick turnaround, we're going to lay all these points? We all know the Sixers are going to end up with the No. 1 seed in the East because Brooklyn is waving the big old white flag. Does it matter how many points the Sixers win by here? They could win by 40, but I doubt it. Take the dog here.

Cleveland 105 @ Washington 120 | 05/14 | 11:00 PM UTC

Cleveland +9

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Wizards have been red hot, and we have certainly rode that train. But Cleveland snapped an 11-game losing streak with a win over Boston on Wednesday. The Cavaliers are getting a ton of points in this game, and these young guys have something to play for. Isaac Okoro is going to be an outstanding two-way player, and he is logging his most productive minutes of the season. I think the Wizards are overvalued in this spot, so give me the dog.

Portland 117 @ Phoenix 118 | 05/14 | 2:00 AM UTC

Phoenix -4

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Portland has been on fire lately, but the Suns need a win. They just need a victory to get themselves right. Phoenix is at home and will be catching the Blazers on the second half of a back to back. Even though the Suns lost to the Warriors on Tuesday, they did bang down 16 threes in that game. Take the Suns to roll all over a tired Blazers team.

Toronto 102 @ Chicago 114 | 05/14 | 12:00 AM UTC

Chicago -10.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: Toronto is just waving the big old white flag. It's like Mario Brothers, when you show up and the princess is in another castle. The Raptors have nothing to play for. The Bulls are finally starting to figure things out with Nikola Vucevic and Zach LaVine. Chicago was beaten up by the Nets on Tuesday, but a lot of teams get beat up by the Nets. Look for the Bulls to bounce back in a big way in this spot. Lay the points with Chicago.
