Miami return home after a difficult six-game road trip and the reigning champions will return to winning ways against a struggling Boston outfit.
While the Heat are out of sorts, Brooklyn and Oklahoma are in rude health and make up the rest of our double-your-money home comfort NBA accumulator.
With identical 31-10 records there seems to be little between Oklahoma City and Portland this term but with the Thunder on a three-game winning streak and the Trail Blazers giving up five more points per game the hosts have to be backed here.
Portland’s defeat last time out is their only loss in six games and Terry Stotts’ men have impressed on the road, going 15-5 from 20 outings.
But with Kevin Durant in the form of his life and the hosts boasting a record of 18-3 from 21 at home Scott Brooks’ men get the nod.
Durant scored a career high 54 points two games ago and followed that with 30 against Sacramento last time out so expect his game to influence the result here.
Brooklyn struggled under the weight of expectation at the start of the season but have turned things around in 2014 going 7-1 from their last eight games.
Jason Kidds’ men are on a five-game winning streak at the Barclays Center and it will take a sterner test than the struggling Orlando Magic can provide to derail the New York residents.
The Magic are 1-10 from 11, have lost five in a row on the road and have bested Brooklyn just once in five attempts.
The visitors beat fellow strugglers Boston last time out but with the Nets overcoming Miami, Oklahoma City and Golden State in recent fixtures expect a sixth straight home victory for Brooklyn.
Miami return to Florida having gone 2-4 from a six-game road trip and Erik Spoelstra’s men will relish being back at home.
The Heat are 7-1 from eight at the AmericanAirlines Arena and will return to winning ways against the struggling Celtics.
Brad Stevens’ men are faring worse than even Orlando, losing to the Magic in a run that puts them 1-11 from 12.
LeBron James continues to shine despite Miami’s defensive frailties and the two-time reigning MVP will ease the hosts to a 11th home win in 14 meetings with Boston.
