Looking to back some short but confident plays as I aim to turn around my poor NBA form.
Klay Thompson Over 24 points (GS Warriors v PHX Suns) @ 1.76 (MarathonBet) – 3 points
Klay Thompson did not shop up at all last night against the Utah Jazz. He only hit 12 points, while failing to hit a 3 pointer for the first time in 30 days. No wonder the bookmakers have slashed his odds to score 24 points or more in this game.
Taking on the Phoenix Suns who are not known as the best defenders in the Premier League, but rather high octance scorers, will help Klay get back into his groove. With the Suns liking the running offense, there will be plenty of opportunities on the fast break for the him to score. Prior to the last game, Klay had been hitting 5 3-pointers a games over the last 10 days alone. He also got to the line on average of 5 times, knocking down 4 of them.
I expect him get back to full scoring form, and expect a top performance from Klay tonight against the Phoenix Suns.
HOU Rockets -4 to beat DET Pistons @ 1.83 (Bet365) – 2.5 points
The Houston Rockets despite not having Dwight Howard still managed to put on a decent 4 game winning streak including a 33-14 record for the season. They have come of some good winning performances including beating Dallas, Boston, Phoenix and LA Lakers in their last 4 games. James Harden continues his All-Star and possibly MVP candidate type performance, while Josh Smith has also shown full value for his signing with them. Smith will take on his former team, and will be very anxious to show them what they lost by releasing him.
The Pistons have struggled building a 4 game losing streak of their own and that has come down behind Brandon Jennings injury. While they have the strength to rebound with Drummond and Monroe, scoring has been their achilles heel all season. They have lost to poorer sides like Philadelphia, Milwaukee as an example and they have failed to score over 100 in 4 out of their last 5 games.
The Rockets look on-song and will be well up for this game especially James Harden who would love to lead this team to another crushing victory.
