Boston Celtics at Oklahoma City Thunder (N/A)
The Oklahoma City Thunder have won 10 consecutive home games and the Boston Celtics have lost six of seven games to fall below .500. Oklahoma Cityís homecourt success is the franchiseís best streak since the team won 12 straight during the 1997-98 season when known as the Seattle SuperSonics. Boston scored just 73 points in Mondayís loss to Dallas. Forward Kevin Garnett is expected back after missing the past two games for personal reasons, but Rajon Rondo still has one game left on his suspension. That leaves Paul Pierce to shoulder the offensive load. He scored 20 point in Bostonís loss to the Mavericks and leads the team averaging 17.3 points per night on the year. Heíll need a lot more than that to keep this one close.

Utah Jazz at Minnesota Timberwolves (-4, 197)
It wasnít so much that the Timberwolves lost to Denver in overtime Monday night, but the way they lost. Down three points with seconds remaining in the extra session, Martell Webster stole an inbounds pass and broke toward the hoop. But instead of pulling up for a trey that could tie the game, he went in for a dunk. "If I had to do it over again, yeah, I'd probably pull up for a jump shot," Webster said. "But what was going through my mind was go to the rim and possibly get fouled. The contingency to that shot was get a bucket, get a foul, they miss free throws and we get another shot. It didn't work out that way."Minnesota ended up taking a 103-101 loss after Corey Brewer hit a free throw. It was a comedy of errors for those that had the Timberwolves, who covered as 3.5-point underdogs. We like the under here.
