With the regular NBA season coming to a close, the final fixtures are this week and we look ahead to see and predict where we think the wins will be and who we think are and aren’t going to make the play offs.
Before the fixtures take place tonight, why not have a spin for yourself at one of the best slot sites on the net – The Harry casino review clearly shows its leagues ahead of the rest in its industry, offering large deposit matches, sign-up offers alongside its vast variety of slots.
Nets vs Magic sees 7th take on 8th which might actually be a deciding factor on who makes it through to the finals and who doesn’t. Nets and Kevin Durant will be looking to inspire the team to take it to Magic who have looked a different team since the return from lockdown and they go into this as favourites. Tip: Magic to win at 8/15.

Rockets vs Spurs is one of them end of the season fixtures in which is irrelevant to both sides with Rockets already booked into the play offs and Spurs miles off the final place in the Western League play offs. Spurs actually go into this as the favourites but if you class yourself as a bit of a punter, go with Rockets at 19/10 with James Harden due a big score.
Next the Suns are at the 76ers in a very interesting match, the Suns are currently on the biggest win streak in the NBA after six consecutive wins and them chasing that final playoff spot and with the 76ers position already secured in the play offs – I see nothing but a Suns win here so back them at 2/9 for sure.
Celtic vs Grizzlies again is another interesting fixture – with the Grizzlies on the cusp of a playoff position in the Western conference, they’ll be throwing everything at the Boston side. However, the Celtics are still comfortably favourites going into this as one of the best sides in the NBA. Back the Celtics at 7/10.
And finally, the Trail Blazers take on the Maverick which similar to Nets vs Magic is a grudge match for the final play in the playoffs but there’s only one winner for us here and that’s the Trail Blazers after Damian Lillard’s 51 points against the 76ers at the weekend – in that sort of form he is unstoppable. Trail Blazers available at best price of 14/19.
Damian Lillard. Steph Curry. Klay Thompson.
They’re the only 3 players in NBA history with multiple games of 11+ threes 💦 pic.twitter.com/dKiMMedIFf
