The Brooklyn Nets have won three straight games and look poised to build upon the return of Kevin Durant because when the best player in the world is out on the court, everything else gets easier. The Nets may be 4-and-6 in their last 10 games, but Durant has only been back for 4 of those - of which they have won three, so you can see how the team is trending right now. Tonight, they face off against the Orlando Magic, a team that has only won 18 games all season and only 3 of their last 10 - so, you would expect the Nets to make light work of their Eastern Conference counterparts tonight. The Nets are still missing some guys, though, with LaMarcus Aldridge, Seth Curry, and Joe Harris all out for the night, while Ben Simmons continues to recondition after almost 12 months out of the game. The Magic, on the other hand, will be without Jalen Suggs, which hurts what slim chances they have at winning this game. I can't look past the Nets tonight, so will be running with them on the money line.

Our next game sees the Memphis Grizzlies take on the Indiana Pacers, and with Myles Turner and Malcolm Brogdon both still on the injury report, I'm expecting the Grizzlies to take care of business. However, there is a lifeline for Indiana here, as Ja Morant is doubtful for tonight's game - unfortunately for Indiana, as we saw earlier this season, the Grizzlies are more than capable of taking care of business in their star guard's absence. Dillon Brooks being back from injury will also be beneficial to the Grizzlies' hopes of adding to their win column. The Pacers have won 4 of their last 10 games, but have struggled to string any wins together in the absence of Turner, while the Grizzlies are 6-and-4 in their last 10 games. This contest will be the closest one of this three-team parlay, but I'm still riding with a Memphis win on the money line.

Our final game sees the Miami Heat take on the Detroit Pistons, and yes, we're expecting Miami to take care of business. Cade Cunningham is questionable for tonight, and that will dramatically impact the Pistons offense, as their star rookie usually initiates their plays and offers three-level scoring, so expect Jerami Grant to shoulder a ton of weight for Detroit tonight. What will hurt the Pistons, is the fact that the Heat have their entire rotation available tonight, and that means their big three, plus super-charged bench guys, will likely overwhelm a young and raw Detroit roster. It hasn't been the season Heat fans envisioned, but if their roster can stay healthy now, they have plenty of time to climb the standings and build some chemistry before the playoffs begin. I'm backing the Heat on the money line to round out this parlay, and given that the Pistons have lost their last 3 straight games, I'm confident in Miami seeing this one through.

The New Orleans Pelicans are 5-and-5 in their last 10 games and are coming off the back of a win against the Houston Rockets, but tonight, they will face arguably the best team in the NBA in the Phoenix Suns. The Pelicans' job isn't going to be made any easier by the fact that Brandon Ingram joins Zion Williamson (who is still yet to play this year) on the sidelines due to hamstring soreness. Chris Paul's continued absence has been eased by the fact that Devin Booker has easily accepted a point guard role in his absence, and has been playing exceptionally well in regards to initiating the offense and dictating play, and I would expect him to be a featured part of the offense against a Pelicans team that currently ranks 29th in defensive rating. While we're on the subject of team strengths and weaknesses, it's worth remembering that Phoenix is currently 2nd in defensive rating, 4th in offensive rating, and 1st in net rating - quite simply, there are very few weaknesses up and down their roster. The Pelicans have struggled both scoring the ball and stopping the ball this season, and I can't see that changing tonight, so taking the Suns on the money line seems like the smartest option, as if any game tonight has blow-out potential, this is the one.
