The 76ers won their second straight game, the Hawks won their 18th in a row and Toronto and Brooklyn took it to two extra periods in a crazy Friday Night. We still made our way through the chaos with a solid 6-3 (395-202 on the year) mark and head into the weekend trying to help NBA bettors win even more cash. Let’s get to it:

Mavericks @ Magic

Dallas finally snapped a four-game skid last night and they have a chance at building a winning streak against a very bad Orlando defense. The Magic play host and can be pretty competitive, but they just don’t have the balance to keep up with the Mavs.

Pick: Mavs 105, Magic 99

Kings @ Pacers

Indy hosts a struggling Kings squad that has lost eight straight, but Sacramento is still undoubtedly the more talented team. The Kings won’t have it easy, but if they can bring their offense they should be able to finally get a win.

Pick: Kings 101, Pacers 96

Raptors @ Wizards

Toronto should be dead tired after enjoying a marathon win over the Nets last night, so the balanced Wizards should be the favorite tonight. Washington is a tough out any night, but when at home they play their best ball.

Pick: Wiz 104, Raptors 100

76ers @ Hawks

Atlanta has won 18 straight and is at home. And it’s the Sixers. Enough said.

Pick: Hawks 108, Sixers 88

Rockets @ Pistons

Dwight Howard remains out but everyone is stepping up in Houston and the Rockets have won four consecutive games. Detroit, meanwhile, has taken a dip since point guard Brandon Jennings went down.

Pick: Rockets 106, Pistons 101

Blazers @ Bucks

Portland has been in shambles lately after losing two straight and seven of their last 10, so they’ll look to bounce back with a nice road win in Milwaukee. The Bucks play sound defense and good team offense, but they’re over-matched here.

Pick: Blazers 104, Bucks 97

Cavaliers @ Timberwolves

Kevin Love returns to Minnesota for the first time in what should be an emotional game for him and the Cavs. Look for his Cleveland teammates to rally behind him as the Cavaliers trounce a bad Timberwolves squad for their 10th straight win.

Pick: Cavs 109, T’Wolves 104

Thunder @ Grizzlies

OKC isn’t really clicking right now, so winning in Memphis against a Grizzlies team rolling with five straight wins won’t be easy. Memphis has superior defense and if they can get Mike Conley back for this one, they’ll be the heavy favorites.

Pick: Grizz 102, Thunder 101

Hornets @ Nuggets

Al Jefferson should be able to abuse Denver down low, as Charlotte continues to try to battle back into the Eastern playoff race. The Nuggets have lost eight of their last 10 and just aren’t playing good ball, so the Hornets should impose their will defensively in a nice road win.

Pick: Hornets 98, Nuggets 95

Clippers @ Spurs

L.A. had a nice six-game winning streak snapped last night and now they’ll travel to San Antonio to take on the well rested Spurs. San Antonio is at home and healthy, so they’re tough to go against tonight.

Pick: Spurs 106, Clippers 102

Suns @ Warriors

Phoenix enters the war zone that is Golden State on the second game of a back to back, so they could be a little run down. The Warriors are also playing their second game in two nights, but they never lose at home and need to snap a two-game skid.

Pick: Warriors 107, Suns 104
