Thursday night in the NBA doesn’t have that one game that really stands out above the rest. That doesn’t mean free NBA picks can’t be made though. Out of the four on the schedule, the Los Angeles Clippers-Phoenix Suns game looks to be the most exciting.
While the Clippers are locked into playoff mode, the Suns are doing anything possible to get in the playoffs. This is a must-win at home. They are currently favored by two points, which is pretty impressive considering the fact they are playing a team that is better than them.
Expect this game to feature a lot of offense. Both teams love to get out on the break and score. It will eventually come down to who can make the most stops. Again, making wise free NBA picks at the end of the regular season means you have to see who is playing with purpose and who is just mailing in the remainder of the regular season.
I like the Suns to win this game by around 5-10 points. They have to keep winning to keep the Rockets and Jazz off their tale. A team like the Suns don’t have a lot of chances left to make playoff runs. This is there shot, and it starts with a win on Thursday.
Pick: Phoenix Suns (-2), over (198)
