DFS Basketball Preview
FanPicks has all of NBA matchup ready for live DFS basketball. Take a look at every game available at FanPicks.com on Thursday.
Suns vs Cavaliers
The Cleveland Cavaliers didn’t look so powerful during a six-game road swing and attempt to turn things around against the Phoenix Suns. Cleveland lost three of the final four games on its excursion and was drubbed 126-91 by the Golden State Warriors in Monday’s finale.
The Cavaliers also lost to the Portland Trail Blazers and Utah Jazz on the trip and figure to find wins easier to come by at home, where their 18-3 mark is the second-best in the NBA. Cleveland power forward Kevin Love (back) will be a game-day decision after being injured during the loss to the Warriors and he was limited in Wednesday’s workout. Phoenix also has dropped three of its last four games, including a 106-101 loss to the Jazz on Monday despite standout point guard Eric Bledsoe excelling with 31 points, nine rebounds and nine assists.
Mavericks vs Heat
The Dallas Mavericks spent most of the first half of the schedule languishing at the bottom of the Western Conference but are finally beginning to make a move up. The Mavericks will try to push their season-best winning streak to four in a row against the Miami Heat.
Wizards vs Knicks
Carmelo Anthony is tired of all the drama team president Phil Jackson is creating for the New York Knicks but reiterated he wants to remain with the club. His team responded with a superb win in Boston and looks to post another victory on Thursday versus the Washington Wizards.
Nuggets vs Spurs
The Denver Nuggets are suddenly the hottest offense in the NBA and scored at least 125 points in each of their last three games with all of them being wins. The competition is about to get a little stiffer. The Nuggets might be catching the Spurs at the right time though, with San Antonio dropping two of its last four games and needing to come from behind to earn a 122-114 home triumph over the Minnesota Timberwolves on January 12.
Timberwolves vs Clippers
The Los Angeles Clippers have gotten used to playing without one or two of their All-Stars, and a couple of months without Chris Paul is just the latest obstacle for the team to overcome. The Clippers will try to earn an eighth consecutive win without Paul around.
