Get highlighted plays for the NBA, college basketball and UEFA Champions League for Wednesday, Nov. 24, and you can stream the show live every morning on the SportsLine YouTube page.

Zack opens with an in-depth look at some interesting trends for the Portland Trail Blazers. Larry is on top of the line movement in Bills-Saints, as New Orleans is dealing with several key injuries. 

The Coach delivers the SportsLIine Play of the Day from UEFA Champions League action. He highlights Manchester City and PSG, backing both teams to score and go Over 2.5 goals at 3 p.m. ET. 

Zack tips off the college basketball selections with Xavier -8 over Iowa State at 7 p.m. ET. Xavier has the better system and has a solid team identity. Iowa State does not have adequate scoring balance and its record has been inflated by a weak schedule. 

Justin's college hoops model is on a 15-3 roll and has three more prime selections for today. He leads with UL Monroe +16.5 over Louisiana Tech at 7:30 p.m. ET. This is too big of a line in a rivalry matchup. Justin is also on UC San Diego + 5.5 over Montana at 9:30 p.m. ET. The Tritons are hot and have beaten some good teams. He finishes with Memphis -1.5 over Virginia Tech at 9:30 p.m. ET. This is a tall task for the Hokies, who have not faced a team as good as the Tigers yet. 

Larry's featured NBA play is the Warriors -10.5 over the Sixers at 10 p.m. ET. "Joel Embiid is out for the ninth straight game. The Sixers have covered in two of those eight," he says. "The Warriors have two full days of rest. They are 7-3 ATS at home and have only lost once at home. The Warriors are No. 1 in defensive efficiency and the next team is not even close."
