    Hey Hoop Ballers, Danny here. I didn’t like the card this week a ton, but I managed to scrounge up a pair of half-size wagers for our collective enjoyment. Follow or fade, let’s have some fun!

    Clippers -5.5 vs Denver – The Clippers are playing better ball in their last two after a home loss to the Kings in the first game back from the All Star break. That loss seems to have acted as a wake up call for the Clippers as they had a lengthy film session before dismantling the Grizzlies, followed by a 10 point victory at Phoenix. The Clippers have a full roster available again with Patrick Beverly and Paul George back in the lineup. They don’t want to be scuffling going into the playoffs, and this is their chance to pull even with Denver in the standings. As Kawhi Leonard said after last game, “It’s only been two games that we’ve won, so it’s nothing too huge. We’ve got to keep going.” I see the Clippers on the rise right now, not a team that will slip up in this spot.

    Raptors -13.5 vs. Charlotte – The Raptors have had two days to stew after a disappointing home loss to conference leader Milwaukee. Toronto embarks on a 6 game Western conference road trip after tonight’s contest. Combine that with the Celtics climbing to only 1 game back in the standings and it is imperative for the Raptors that they take care of business in this spot. The Raps absolutely demolish bad teams, and are currently 32-3 against sub-.500 teams. On the other side, Charlotte is just 2-20 against teams .500 and above. This is a “kill spot” for Toronto and I don’t see Charlotte getting in the way of them.
