As if things hadn't been going poorly enough for the Bulls lately, they just lost Zach LaVine to the NBA's health and safety protocols. They're already barely hanging onto the final spot in the play-in tournament. The Grizzlies, fresh off a heartbreaker of a loss to the Mavericks, are in a much better position to win this game as they look to solidify their standing in the top eight in the west.

Unlike Wednesday's Nets-Sixers game, this matchup between two would-be contenders should actually feature both teams' best players. Taking the Clippers to win at plus odds is purely an upside play here—they've been a different team since the acquisition of Rajon Rondo and this is a perfect opportunity to pick up a big win against another good team to add to their resume.

The Magic are in full tank mode, and the Raptors are somehow only a game behind Chicago for a play-in spot. Coming off a win against the Spurs, the Raptors have an opportunity here to string together a few wins to keep themselves in the mix, especially coming against a terrible team.
