Betting preview for Friday's NBA games

Jonathan Von Tobel gives bettors an in-depth preview of every NBA game on tonight's slate, including injury reports.

What in the world happened in Milwaukee last night?

With 6:55 left to go in the fourth quarter Bobby Portis sank a 20-foot jumper to put the Bucks up 122-103 over the 76ers. Those who laid any one of the numbers with Milwaukee pre-flop were ready to cash their tickets and move on with the day; I had turned off the game accepting defeat. But then, basketball happened.

Philadelphia went on to outscore Milwaukee 14-2 the rest of the way and got inside the number, losing 124-117, for one of the most agonizing beats of the NBA season. The two points for the Bucks came on two trips to the free throw line for Giannis Antetokounmpo in which he split his attempts. The second half over died, the side died and so did many bettors’ hopes and dreams.

The Main Event

Boston Celtics* at Brooklyn Nets (-6, 232.5)

Our main event today has a ton of injury question marks floating around it. Kevin Durant was upgraded to questionable this morning, and that fits with the timeline given on Sunday when he was initially injured. For Boston, Jaylen Brown, Robert Williams and Evan Fournier are inching closer to a return. All three are questionable to play today, which makes this somewhat difficult to handicap.
