Will you bet online for the Joker or the KAT?
Brooklyn Nets @ Boston Celtics (April 12, 9:00 GMT +8)
It's unfortunate that the Celtics would have to compete in the playoffs without either of the marquee players they got in the summer, but they can at least hope for a good end to their season. Jaylen Brown and company might find themselves in a tough yet winnable game against a streaky Brooklyn team.
New York Knicks @ Cleveland Cavaliers (April 12, 9:00 GMT +8)
Tristan Thompson has his own off-court problems, but his extracurricular activities should not have any impact on the Cavaliers' chances against the poor Knicks. I don't think LeBron James will want to end season number 15 on a low.
Toronto Raptors @ Miami Heat (April 12, 9:00 GMT +8)
The Heat are teetering off after enduring unacceptable losses against Brooklyn and New York, and their upcoming test against Toronto might leave Goran Dragic in tears. DeMar DeRozan should have no problems outplaying their hosts.
Washington Wizards @ Orlando Magic (April 12, 9:00 GMT +8)
Mario Hezonja is getting a lot of playing time as another disappointing season ends in Orlando, and he is showing flashes of brilliance. However, his minute brilliance may have little to no effect against John Wall and the Wizards.
Milwaukee Bucks @ Philadelphia 76ers (April 12, 9:00 GMT +8)
The Sixers are enjoying a fantastic winning streak, including a thrilling winner against the Cavs. Ben Simmons will want to end his rookie season with a win, but Giannis Antetokounmpo and the visiting Bucks will do everything to spoil the party.
Detroit Pistons @ Chicago Bulls (April 12, 9:00 GMT +8)
This is not the ideal end to the season for Blake Griffin, but his team winning against the Chicago Bulls should at least give him a positive end to an already terrible season. The Bulls barely have people to field on the floor due to injuries, but Lauri Markkanen is doing wonders for the Bulls. Betting on Chicago +2.00 @ 1.88 is not a bad idea.
Denver Nuggets @ Minnesota Timberwolves (April 12, 9:00 GMT +8)
This battle is one that will draw in the big guns.
Both the Nuggets and the Wolves have a 46-35 record, but their season series put the Wolves at the final playoff spot. Nikola Jokic and Karl-Anthony Towns are already putting up some amazing performances for their respective teams, and this game could have the intensity of a playoff match.
The Wolves have the definite home-court advantage working for them, but the Nuggets did beat them earlier this month. They also contained strong teams like Milwaukee, Indiana and Portland in their last five contests. Choosing Denver +3.00 @ 2.00 is a steal in my book.
San Antonio Spurs @ New Orleans Pelicans (April 12, 9:00 GMT +8)
The Smoothie King Center will bear witness to a thrilling battle of big men as LaMarcus Aldridge and Anthony Davis do battle.
Both bigs enjoyed a successful season that saw them lead their respective teams to the playoffs. The Spurs will surely mount a fight, but Nikola Mirotic and E'Twaun Moore will probably help AD secure the final W of the season. It's recommended for punters to take New Orleans -4.00 @ 2.02.
Memphis Grizzlies @ Oklahoma City Thunder (April 12, 9:00 GMT +8)
MarShon Brooks is something of a revelation to the Grindhouse, but his 21.8ppg in April won't be able to do enough against the Thunder. Westbrook will most likely pad his rebounds to end the season with another triple-double, but that won't take away from the fact that they are the better team.
Los Angeles Lakers @ Los Angeles Clippers (April 12, 11:30 GMT +8)
I don't think there's any better way to end the NBA season in Tinseltown than through this matchup. The Clippers are better-ranked than their Purple and Gold neighbours, but the Lakers have the brighter future. It will be up to the young Lakers team (with a 32-year-old rookie) to prove the hype surrounding them.
Utah Jazz @ Portland Trail Blazers (April 12, 11:30 GMT +8)
Donovan Mitchell's supreme confidence and skill is a breath of fresh air that helped the Jazz compete for the third seed in a turbulent Western Conference. Damian Lillard and the Blazers also want the seat and will battle them hard for it.
This has the makings of a classic that will showcase both Lillard and Mitchell. Given this fact, I see the Blazers winning by only a slim margin. Utah +2.50 @ 2.13 is a fine punt to make in my opinion.
Houston Rockets @ Sacramento Kings (April 12, 11:30 GMT +8)
The Rockets are shooting towards the stars with their outstanding basketball, and their main guys can take a well-deserved break before the outset of the playoff race. They shouldn't have that much trouble battling a Sacramento team that is again destined for another season without seeing postseason ball.
