Seattle (+5) at Memphis: The host Grizzlies have become a solid home team thanks to Jerry West, who made Pao Gasol an All-Star caliber player and transformed Jason Williams into a competent point guard. Seattle will die this night by the 3s. GRIZZLIES.

Toronto (+6) at Denver: The highlight reels will be active with Vince Carter and Carmelo Anthony. Denver is an outstanding home team and should take advantage of the weary Raptors on the last leg of a West Coast trip. NUGGETS.

Last week: 2-0

Season: 13-5


Ottawa at Boston: Two of the best in the East collide at the Fleet Center. Advantage Ottawa having Monday off, while the Bruins had to face the Capitals in Washington the previous night. We like to side with the rested team. SENATORS.

NY Rangers at Los Angeles: Only visit to Staples Center this season for the Broadway Blues. These teams have had their share of wild games and we have a feeling this could be another one. Could be a big night for Kings’ Luc Robitaille, who played for both. OVER 5.

Last week: 1-1

Season: 10-11
