1. Oklahoma City Thunder
Next Games: vs MIN, @ ORL, vs NYK, @ POR
[sc:NBA240banner ]Despite Oklahoma City’s 10-game winning streak coming to an end this week, the Thunder still keep the top spot in rankings thanks to a 9-1 SU/8-2 ATS record over their previous 10 games. Kevin Durant continues his MVP push by leading the team in scoring for every single one of those games.
OKC can capitalize on a relatively easy schedule this week. Three of its four games will come against teams .500 or worse. The Thunder are 17-2 SU against teams .500 and under.
2. Memphis Grizzlies
Next Games: vs DAL, @ ATL, @CLE, vs WSH
The Memphis Grizzlies had their six-game winning streak snapped by the Oklahoma City Thunder, but they still held the Thunder’s top 5 offense well below their season average. Their streak of holding their opponent to below 100 points is now up to 11 games.
With Marc Gasol’s return anchoring the Memphis defense, the total for the Grit n’ Grind Grizzlies has now gone UNDER in 9 of their last 10 games.
3. Toronto Raptors
Next Games: @ SAC, @ LAC, vs NOP
Led by All-Star DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry, the Toronto Raptors have established themselves as leaders of the Atlantic Division. The Raps are 4-1 SU/5-0 ATS in their last 5 games, which has pushed them to a season-best 4 games above .500.
Toronto will play the two remaining games of a five-game Western road trip, which has been pretty good so far. The Raptors are 5-0 ATS in their last five road games.
4. Phoenix Suns
Next Games: @ HOU, vs GSW, vs MIA
The Phoenix Suns continue to astound with a recent 5-1 SU & ATS run in their last 6 games to climb up to 6th place in the Western Conference. The Suns can potentially climb even higher when they face teams directly above (Rockets) and below (Golden State) them in the standings this week.
5. Washington Wizards
Next Games: vs SA, vs CLE, vs SAC, @ MEM
Rejoice! After four long years, the Washington Wizards are finally back above .500. Washington is an impressive 5-1 ATS in its last 6 games, including 4 covers on the bounce. The Wiz are coming off enormous back-to-back wins as home underdogs against Western leaders Oklahoma City and Portland.
