Let's get stuck into the action tonight.


Sam's NBA picks will regularly be giving you picks for the day's hoop action. I recommend backing these individually but you're welcome to parlay them too. Each pick is staked at one unit.

Warriors @ Rockets

Okay, let's get the Kevin Durant injury out of the way. It's bad news for the Warriors but also for hoops fans who won't see one of the top 3 players in the game tonight, and quite possibly for the duration of the playoffs.

The early lines for this game from Vegas were Rockets -5.5 which seemed totally reasonable and I'd probably have taken the Warriors on that. Then Durant got injured but the line has only moved to -6.5. That margin isn't anywhere near big enough for losing a forward like KD. Purely on a value stance alone, you need to take the -6.5 available on Houston today.
