It was yet another NBA top play winner here at the SportsbookRoom as the Boston Celtics got the win and point spread cover against a flawed LA Clippers team. It was a back to back fade on a Clippers team that will get exploited by teams with good coaching. Two key impact players can’t make free throws and that is recipe for disaster in closely contested teams and especially against clubs who play good defense like the Celtics. Our NBA top pick on Tuesday comes from the late night west coast game as the Golden St Warriors visit their neighbor the Sacramento Kings from pro basketball action. The Warriors and Kings will tip off from Sacramento at 10PM Eastern time and it’s the NBA League Pass who will provide the live television broadcast. Our NBA best bet is playing on the Golden St Warriors +3 points against the Golden St Warriors. The pointspread between the Warriors and Kings comes courtesy of BetOnline sportsbook.

This Golden St Warriors team has begun to play solid basketball on both sides of the court. They have won two straight games betting Dallas and the LA Clippers. They shot 54.1% against Dallas and 51.4% against the LA Clips. Dallas shot just 37.3% against the Warriors and the Clippers converted on 43% from the floor. A positive for the Warriors we saw in the Clippers win was the complete game we saw from Monta Ellis who scored 21 points and dished out 11 assists. Point guard Stephen Curry is back healthy and in the Warriors rotation. Center Ekpe Udoh continues his steady improvement down in the low post as he produced 14 points and 6 boards in the Warriors win against the Clippers on Sunday.
The Sacramento Kings have dropped five of their past seven games. They continue to be flawed on the defensive side of the court. Season to date the Kings are giving up over 47% shooting and nearly 103 points per game. There is definitely a statistical advantage here for the Golden St Warriors as over their past five games they are scoring 99 points and hitting on nearly 48% from the floor and 45% from the three point line. Like we have said when we bet against the Kings at home a few days back you cannot lay points with a team that can’t or won’t defend the basket. Bet Golden St +3 points today at the best online sportsbooks.
