NBA | 22 January Preview

Two players on a basketball court

We preview selected NBA fixtures taking place on the 21st and 22nd of January 2019. 

Nets 6/10 vs Kings 12/10
21 Jan 2019, 22:30
Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York

Brooklyn Nets host the Sacramento Kings in New York, both teams are in search of their third consecutive wins and have lost one in their last five matches. I'm tipping Nets to make home advantage count here.

H2H since 2015
Nets 11 - 6 Kings
Verdict: Brooklyn Nets 6/10

LA Lakers 47/10 vs Golden State Warriors 1/10
22. Jan 2019, 05:30
Los Angeles, USA
Staples Center

The Warriors will look to continue their winning streak after  their 94-112 win against the Clippers. The Lakers will be without Lonzo Ball and LeBron James as the pair are both nursing injuries. This should be another regulation win for the Warriors that will see Demarcus Cousins get more game time.

H2H Since 2015
Lakers 6 - 10 Golden State
Verdict: Golden State 1/10

Utah Jazz 9/10 vs Portland Trail Blazers 31/20
22. Jan 2019, 04:00
Salt Lake City, USA
Vivint Smart Home Arena

The Jazz are on a six-match winning run after a recent victory over the hapless Cleveland Cavaliers. The Trail Blazers will start their three-match road trip with a stop at Salt Lake City where they're tipped to go down against the Jazz.

Head to Head
Utah Jazz 8 - 9 Portland
Verdict: Utah Jazz 9/10

Boston Celtics 1/4  vs Miami Heat 26/10

The Celtics go into this match with the home advantage and have won three of their last encounters. The heat won the most recent meeting between the sides 115-99 on the 11th of January. Repeating the feat in Boston will prove a bridge too far, however.

Head to Head
Boston 11 - 6 Miami
Verdict: Boston 1/4

Memphis Grizzlies 11/20 vs New Orleans Pelicans 5/4
22. Jan 2019, 00:30
Memphis, USA

The Memphis Grizzlies are 12th in the Western Conference and will host the New Orleans Pelicans at the FedExForum. The Pelicans will look to round out their three-match road trip with a victory against a Grizzlies side that have only won one from 10 matches.

Head to Head
Memphis 11 - 7 New Orleans
Verdict: New Orleans 5/4
