NBA Wednesday MKF Picks for Jan. 6

It’s a busy slate in the NBA tonight. There are 11 games on the hardwood tonight featuring some dynamic matchups.

The Rockets are in Indiana to face the Pacers and James Harden will be on triple-double alert in this tilt.

It will be an awesome game in South Beach as the Celtics battle the Heat. Jimmy Butler and Jayson Tatum will be a great duel.

Will Steph Curry’s hot streak continue against the Clippers? Dub Nation fans are hoping for Curry to go off against a Western Conference rival.

More or Less

🏀 Celtics vs Heat 

Bam Adebayo MORE than 4.5 assists

Miami’s big man is dishing out 4.3 dimes a game and had a 10 assist game this season. He could be seeing a ton of double teams from the Celtics tonight so he’ll be forced to find shooters. Adebayo has collected 16 assists in the last three games as well.

Tristian Thompson LESS than 7.5 rebounds

The Heat could play some small ball tonight so Tristian Thompson’s opportunity for minutes could be limited. He’ll see plenty of Bam Adebayo so that will make it tough on the Longhorn product. Thompson is averaging 8.7 rebounds a game this season but the Heat have a 78.8% defensive rebounding rate.

🏀 Clippers vs Warriors

Steph Curry MORE than 30.5 points

#30 has scored 92 points in the last two games and his hot streak should continue against the Clippers. LA is on the second night of a back-to-back and will have troubles guarding the former MVP. Curry has dropped over 30.5 points 4 out of the 7 games this season. He is averaging 36.9% from three-point land and a staggering 98.2% from the charity stripe.

Paul George LESS than 27.5 points

Paul George is coming off an ankle injury and will be the focus of the Warriors defense. He has produced more than 27.5 points in 2 out of his 7 games this season. George’s career average against the Warriors is 18.6. Expect to see some double teams from Golden Sate and forcing others to beat them.
