Tuesday was Martin Luther King Day throughout the USA and we were gifted to an incredible 12 game slate.
Only two games are scheduled for Wednesday but both shape up to be interesting contests.
We start off with New York Knicks hosting the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Minnesota @ New York
january 18th 11:30am
Fresh off an impressive win against the Golden State Warriors, Karl Anthony Towns’ Timberwolves are set to face off with the New York Knicks.
Before Tuesday morning’s game with Charlotte the Knicks had found some form, having won three in a row before the 10 point defeat at the hands of the Hornets.
Despite these two teams having very similar records the sentiment amongst pundits throughout the league couldn’t be any more different.
Whilst the Knicks are sitting 11th in the East with a .500 their season to date has been viewed mostly as disappointment.
Contrastingly, the Timberwolves, have one less win than the Knicks but sit in 8th in the Western Conference and look like big improvers, due largely to the offensive potency of their stars Edwards, Anthony-Towns and Russell.
Siding with the away team here, has all the makings of a massive game from Anthony Edwards.
Suggested Bet: Head to head @ Timberwolves $1.67

Winners of 5 of their last 10, the Detroit Pistons look they may have turned a corner.
With such a young and inexperienced roster a deep playoff run was never reasonably on the cards for the team from the Motor City, But the emergence of prized draft pick, Cade Cunningham, has been a silver lining for this team.
On the other side of ledger are the Golden State Warriors, proud owners of the second best record in the league.
The Dubs started the season off in incredible form despite a brutal run of injuries and the entire NBA world were delighted about the return of sharpshooting superstar Klay Thompson.
Without Curry, resting, and Green, calf, the Golden State fell to the Timberwolves in their latest outing and will be out to wrestle back some form – and pride – against the lowly Pistons.
Suggested Bet: Warriors -15.5 @ $1.90
