Two wins, two losses on our Acca yesterday, very disappointing but not to worry as you have stuck to our staking plan we still have a decent pot to build on. The #NBAChallenge over on Facebook and Twitter is still going strong and we should hit our £100 by Sunday night all being well.

Cleveland Cavaliers @ Detroit Pistons – 00:35GMT
Cleveland Cavaliers’ coach Tyronn Lue missed Monday’s loss at home to the on-fire Miami Heat due to illness but is expected to be courtside away to the Detroit Pistons tonight. On the injury front, the Cavs announced yesterday that newly signed center Andrew Bogut has been ruled out for the postseason after being injured just 58 seconds into his debut on Monday with a fractured left tibia. Ouch.
Regarding their form, the Cavs have not been showing the form of defending champs as of late, losing four of their last six games. Suddenly, the Cavs status atop the Eastern Conference is a little more precarious, as Boston pulled within 2.5 after shocking the Warriors last night in California.
Meanwhile, Stan Van Gundy’s Pistons are neck and neck with the Bulls in seventh as Detroit enters the next six games in which five on their home court. While they lost for the third time in eight games in a 115-98 defeat to the Indiana Pacers last night, the defeat did drop the Pistons two games behind the Pacers in the battle for sixth place in the East.
The Cavs and Pistons have squared off twice this season already, both winning their home games but I fancy Cleveland, who catches Detroit playing on the second end of a back-to-back and I fancy them to win by at least five.
Los Angeles Clippers @ Memphis Grizzlies – 01:05GMT
For the final tip of #NBADaily, we follow the Los Angeles Clippers to Tennessee for their match-up against the Memphis Grizzlies and I look to the total points for the profits in this one and here’s the reason why…
So far this season, the Clippers are averaging 107.9PPG with 46.9% shooting success and allowing 104.9PPG so the Overs of 207 points seems to good of a price at 1.90 with Bet365. On the other hand, the Grizzlies who are desperate for the big win after losing five of their last seven, are averaging 101.4PPG with 43.5% and allowing 100.5PPG.
Now although this suggests the stats of Memphis would take us under, I see the Grizzlies winning with the Clippers still reaching their 107 point average and with the Grizzlies valued at just 1.71 for the win, I feel this bet gives us that better value.
Remember to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to join in on the #NBAChallenge posted daily on both accounts where we try to go from £10 up to £100.
