The Phoenix Suns have a lot to play for Wednesday night when they host the San Antonio Spurs. Here’s the latest from BroburySports.com: Phoenix is a 6 ½-point home favorite at BroburySports. ESPN will broadcast at 10:30 pm ET. Phoenix is 50-27 straight-up (44-32-1 ATS) and battling Dallas, Denver and Utah for second place in the West Conference. The difference between second and fifth place is huge.
What was supposed to be a quick and easy four game sweep of the Atlanta Hawks has turned into a dogfight for the Boston Celtics. The Celtics were expected to be resting by now but will be playing a pivotal game five on Wednesday night and then a game six in Atlanta on Friday.
The Los Angeles Lakers will look to avoid a letdown in Game #2 on Wednesday as they host the Denver Nuggets. The Lakers had little trouble in game one and are wary of the Nuggets coming out hard in game two.
The Utah Jazz will try and clinch home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs as they travel to San Antonio on Wednesday. The Jazz have not had much success at San Antonio in the past though. The game means a lot to the Jazz since getting home court advantage in the first round would be huge. The Jazz have the best record in the NBA at home but they are just 17-23 on the road.
The Atlanta Hawks will probably already be in the playoffs when they host the Orlando Magic on Tuesday night. Indiana had to win at Washington on Tuesday to keep their playoff hopes alive and that was unlikely, which means the Hawks would get the eight spot in the East.
