There were a couple of interesting games on Monday night as the NBA got underway again for another week, but Tuesday night offers up a greater level of basketball action and excitement.

Los Angeles Lakers @ Detroit Pistons
This is a game between two sides who wish they were doing much better this season, so there is going to be a win for one team that desperately needs it. The Lakers come into this game with a 4-13 record, and they stand at 2-5 away from home. The Pistons hold a 3-14 record, while standing at 2-7 away from home. If it was possible for both teams to lose this game, they might, but of course, one of them has to be a winner somehow. The Lakers are on a winning streak of 1 while the Pistons are on a losing streak of 8.
The Lakers grabbed a massive 129-122 win against the high flying Toronto Raptors on Sunday night and it was a special occasion for Kobe Bryant. The player bagged his 20th triple double of his career. Bryant served up 31 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists on Sunday evening. The Pistons lost at home to the Warriors on Sunday night, by a score of93-104 but Brandon Jennings returned after missing three games, and he made the most of his return to action by grabbing 22 points.
The Lakers have no significant injuries to worry about while the Pistons may be denied the services of Brandon Jennings as they monitor his response to returning to action on Sunday night after a few games out.
It is going to be a tough one to call but the Lakers at odds of 1.90 even with a handicap of +1.5 looks to be the option that makes sense for this Tuesday night game. Bet Now!
Dallas Mavericks @ Chicago Bulls
The Mavericks hold a 13-5 record, with a 6-3 record away from home, while the Bulls hold a 11-6 record, which stands at 2-3 at home. With only 5 of 17 games played at home, there is no real indicator of how good the Bulls are at home yet, and they will be desperate to get their home form out of deficit by the end of this game. The Mavericks are on a winning streak of 3 while the Bulls are on a run of 2, so there is clearly one run coming to an end on Tuesday night.
The Bulls were in great form in their win on Sunday night against the Nets. Jimmy Butler was the main man but he was ably assisted by Pau Gasol, who grabbed 25 points and 13 rebounds while Nikola Mirotic served up a double double, with 12 points and 12 rebounds. The game was also the first time that Derrick Rose made 4 consecutive starts in over a year.
The Mavericks come into this game after a 110-103 win against Philadelphia with Tyson Chandler being on form with 20 points and 13 rebounds.
Both teams have a lot of injuries to concern themselves with, with the Mavericks possibly being without Jameer Nelson and Raymond Felton while Dirk Nowitzki is being monitored on a daily basis. Taj Gibson may well be absent for the Bulls while Kirk Hinrich, Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose are all receiving regular treatment for minor injury concerns.
It is likely to be a tough match and the Bulls haven’t shown great form at home yet, even though they have been strong on the road. With this in mind, taking the Mavericks at odds of 1.90 while holding a +2.0 handicap is likely to be a sensible bet. Bet Now!
Milwaukee Bucks @ Cleveland Cavaliers
The Bucks hold a 10-8 record, with a 5-5 status away from home, coming into this game and they will be hoping to put up another great fight on the road. The Cavs are currently holding an 8-7 record, with a 5-4 home record, so the Bucks won’t be overawed by their opponent, but they will know that they face a massive opponent if the Cavs hit form. The Bucks lost their last outing but the Cavs are on a winning streak of 3, which is one of the stronger runs the team has made this season!
The Cavs had lost four in a row, but they have been on fire in the past week. On the 24th of November, they hammered Orlando Magic by 32 points and then they managed to defeat the Wizards by 26 points last Wednesday. The Cavs were so comfortable in their Saturday win against the Pacers, by a score of 109-97, that LeBron was able to sit out the entire fourth quarter. This is the sort of victory that Cavs fans will be wanting to see and while there will be a desire to see as much of James as possible, knowing that the team can win without running him into the ground will be seen as a very positive thing for the Cavs.
The Bucks had grabbed three wins in a row before they lost out 103-117 at home to Houston, and they will be keen to get their season back on track when they are on the road in Cleveland.
The Bucks have a few injury concerns for this game and they are worried that Nate Wolters and John Henson will all be unavailable in Cleveland but Zaza Pachulia may be back after dealing with a family bereavement. The Cavs are likely to be without Matthew Dellavedova while Anderson Varejao is being monitored on a daily basis.
You get the impression that the bookmaker odds are still reflecting the potential from the Cavs as opposed to their actual form, and the odds of 1.90 for the Bucks at +10.5 look impressive. Even if the Cavs play well, they will need to be on top form to dismantle the Bucks in a strong manner, so you will find that this is a bet that is likely to maintain your interest throughout the game.
