San Antonio Spurs @ New York Knicks
The Spurs have found form again after a tricky spell but they may find that their run of form becomes a bigger challenge due to the absence of Manu Ginobili. He may be an NBA veteran but Ginobili is a big influence on this team and he will be missed by the Spurs. However, the team should have more than enough about them to take care of the Knicks in New York.
The Spurs hold a 41-24 record going into this game, which includes a road record of 16-16. The Knicks hold a 13-53 record and with an 8-23 record at home, it is easy to see why the Spurs are hotly tipped to win this game. The Spurs won their most recent game, a 123-97 win against the Timberwolves on Sunday and the Knicks have lost their last two games, the most recent defeat coming in Phoenix on Sunday when they were downed 102-89.

The Spurs are closely monitoring Manu Ginobili and Aron Baynes while the Knicks are without Carmelo Anthony and have varying degrees of concern over Jose Calderon, Cleanthony Early and Quincy Arcy.
Taking the Spurs with a -12.5 handicap, at odds of 1.90, is likely to be a decent bet for Tuesday. Bet Now!
Orlando Magic @ Houston Rockets
The Rockets have been boosted by some big performances from big players of late and James Harden has shown that he has the ability to be in the mix for the MVP spot. Dwight Howard is an absence that may have derailed the Rockets but Terence Jones has stepped in and kept the team on track. Coming up against a Magic defence that hasn’t been too magic should give the Rockets a chance to grab a decent win in this game.
The Magic hold a 21-47 record going into this game which includes a 10-25 record on the road. The Rockets hold a 44-22 record this campaign, which includes a 24-9 record at home.
