Tuesday, January 26th, 2016

The NBA schedules two outstanding games over national television to the satisfaction of pro basketball bettors worldwide.

The action gets going at 8PM Eastern Time on ESPN TV as the San Antonio Spurs will host the Houston Rockets. The Spurs will be favored in this matchup. They will be an angry team as they are home to Houston after getting crushed at Golden St on Monday. The Spurs had a nine game win streak snapped as The Warriors win 120-90 on their home court and covered the spread as a -4 ½ point favorite. The Spurs rested center Tim Duncan with a right knee problem. He will also miss Wednesday’s game. On the Rockets side center Dwight Howard has been listed as questionable with a sprained ankle and has missed the past three games. It has been a disappointing year for the Rockets. Head coach Kevin McHale was fired early on. The team lacks a defensive commitment and it shows in the numbers. They rank 26th out of 30 teams in field goal defending by allowing 46.4% shooting from the field. The team allows 36.1% from three point distance which is 22nd in the league. James Harden leads the Rockets with 27.7 points per game but is shooting 42.5% from the field which is his worst since his rookie season. His 34.2% from the three point line is a career worst.

The late night game tips at 10:30PM Eastern Time on ESPN as the Golden St Warriors will host the Dallas Mavericks. The Dallas Mavericks will be in a back to back in this spot as they were at the Lakers the night before. Dallas started fast but has faded to 25-21 on the year.

Golden St passed a major home test on Monday in routing San Antonio and sending a message to the league. They faced Eastern conference heavyweights in Chicago and Cleveland in recent games and blew out the Bulls by 31 points and the Cavaliers by 34 points.

That loss broke a string of seven straight victories. The Thunder has allowed 104 points or greater in three of their past four games. It was a bad defensive effort for the Thunder as they allowed a bad Nets team to shoot nearly 48% from the floor. The supporting cast for Durant and Westbrook failed the team. Westbrook had 27 points and Durant contributed with 32 points in the loss. The Knicks have been battling to get over .500. The team is 22-24 after a road defeat 97-84 at Charlotte on Saturday night.
