The Atlanta Hawks are 5-and-5 over their last 10 games and have been struggling to string wins together. Known for their offensive firepower, Atlanta has had some notable moments throughout the season, but teams are aware of their defensive liabilities and seem to be tacking full advantage wherever possible. However, the Los Angeles Clippers, who face the Hawks later today, will be more focused on limiting Trae Young and co. on the offensive end, because the Clippers are missing a string of starting-caliber talent, and will need to try and swim rather than sink. Despite their raft of injuries, the Clippers are 7-3 in over their last 10 games, courtesy of some excellent coaching from Ty Lue. And it's the current form that will have the Atlanta Hawks feeling a little nervous because they know the Clippers come to play every night, regardless of who their opponent is.

Sure, Los Angeles doesn't have any available star power, but they are a well-organized unit that claws for every possession, and those of the types of teams the Hawks generally struggle with. Of course, we have to recognize the talent gap and approach this game accordingly. Giving the Clippers a +10-point spread feels like it will put us on good footing heading into the first leg of this parlay.

The Houston Rockets have won 2 of their last 10 games, and while they are running most teams close, they clearly lack a closer in the clutch. But, that's what's to be expected from a rebuilding team, especially one without a notable offensive talent at their disposal. Luckily, the Rockets are accustomed to losing at this point, because when they face the Dallas Mavericks later today, they're probably going to lose again. Such is life. Dallas has found some momentum since the turn of the year and has been stringing together some solid two-way performances since pairing Spencer Dinwiddie with Luka Doncic, while their wings have developed into legitimate defensive forces.

Over their last 10 games, the Mavericks have won 7 of their last 10 games and currently sit fifth in the Western Conference standings - one place out of home-court advantage and just 1.5 games behind the Utah Jazz. So, they're going to be approaching games full-throttle as they look to make up ground and give themselves the best possible chance heading into the post-season. I think the Rockets will fight valiantly tonight but to no avail. A +14 spread helps make things appear fairer, especially with how close the Rockets have been pushing teams recently.

The New York Knicks are on a three-game winning streak and even held the Dallas Mavericks to 77 points in their last game. However, this seems like another false start for a team that has been chasing the ghost of last year all season, especially when you factor in six first-team players being on their injury report and the team's propensity for underperforming this season. It doesn't help that the Knicks' opponents for tonight are the Memphis Grizzlies - one of the most in-form teams in the league, with Ja Morant, who is surging towards stardom with each passing game. The Grizzlies have won 6 of their last 10 games and continue to impress with their depth and elite athleticism, something the Knicks will struggle to handle throughout tonight's game. I'm a big fan of how Memphis plays, and the depth they have within their roster, but I will be giving the Knicks plenty of room to make it four straight wins by giving them a +14-point spread tonight.

The Boston Celtics have faced the Detroit Pistons a couple of times this season, and on each occasion, the game has been a physical affair which has come down to the final few possessions. Yet, Jayson Tatum has taken his game to a new level in recent weeks and finds himself firmly in All-NBA discussions, and after dropping a total of 98 points in his last two games, will likely be looking to go off again tonight - unfortunately for the Pistons', there's no one on their roster who can stop him. The best hope Detroit has of snagging a victory here is by out-muscling the Celtics and forcing them into a dogfight, and even that's difficult, considering Boston thrives in those sorts of environments. I like Detroit, they play to their strengths and are unapologetic about how they go about business. But when a team that's as in-form as the Celtics comes to town, you have to bunker down and hope you can contain their scoring outbursts. After all, the Pistons are a rebuilding team, and while they have talent that projects to eventually reach elite status, right now, they're too inexperienced to deal with a Celtics team that has a championship on the mind. The biggest hindrance for the Pistons tonight is the fact their tone-setter - Isaiah Stewart is out with injury - as he's been the guy to give Boston problems throughout the season. I'm giving Detroit a +15-point spread tonight because I think they have a chance of hanging around in this one, but ultimately, this should be another win for a rolling Celtics team.

The Cleveland Cavaliers continue to be a surprise story of the season, but their momentum has begun to fizzle out, with the team winning just 4 of their last 10 games, although their defense has remained steadfast. Tonight, the Cavaliers face the Miami Heat, who have been looking much improved now that their primary rotation is finally healthy have won 7 of their last 10 games. It's contests like this that expose teams with players missing through injury, and while neither roster is fully healthy, Jarrett Allen and Caris LeVert are going to be big misses for the Cavaliers. I do think the Heat have enough talent in their roster to overcome their opponents tonight, especially if Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson can get things going from deep. I'm giving the Cavaliers a +9-point spread for this game, as if the Heat aren't clicking offensively, they're probably going to struggle
