IT’S a pretty quiet day of sport although you can always rely on the NBA for some action.
There’s a five-match card getting under way tonight and Phoenix Suns play their first game since sacking head coach Jeff Hornacek on the back of a rotten run of 19 defeats in 21 games.
The Suns, with Earl Watson in interim charge, host Eastern Atlantic leaders Toronto Raptors and are 4-1 at Skybet for a much-needed win while the away side are just 1-5 at bwin.
Boston Celtics are 10-13 (Paddy Power) as they look to bounce back from a first defeat in six when they travel to New York Knicks (11-10, Skybet). And the other matches see Portland entertain Milwaukee, Minnesota visit LA Lakers and Miami head to Houston.
On the tennis front, the ATP Montpellier serves up Borna Coric and Dustin Brown v Steve Darcis among the day’s matches.
Good luck with your bets and let’s hear all your sporting tips and chat. We’ve brought Jordan on board to head up the sports tips and also watch out for his football tips. We wish him well.
His tip is below and he says: “It’s quite a difficult card in tonight’s NBA but always the case when its smaller. Toronto will be peeved their run of wins came to an end after losing in Denver last night and will look to get back winning ways in Phoenix with the Suns in a bad way after firing their head coach yesterday (which I thought was unfair as). The Bucks are on b2b road games and face a Portland side who have won 6 of their last 7 at home.”
