Oklahoma City Thunder (55-20 SU, 45-26-2 ATS, 35-38-2 O/U) at Indiana Pacers (48-27 SU, 42-33 ATS, 34-30-1 O/U)

Intangibles:

Oklahoma City moved to a 1/2 game behind the Spurs in the Western Conference.
Veteran guard Derek Fisher led the Thunder with five three-pointers against the Spurs.
Indiana has won five straight games.

Last game:  (12/9/12) Oklahoma City (-10) over Indiana, 104-93.

Keys to Success: Oklahoma City played on Thursday night and after beating the Spurs, is now just a half game away from the first seed in the West. Indiana is half game behind New York for second place in the East. The Pacers last played on Monday as they are coming off an impressive four-game road trip, beating the Clippers, Suns, Mavericks and Houston. They can clinch the Central Division crown with a win. They need to make this a halfcourt game and not try and run with Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant.

Oklahoma City is coming off winning two straight and five of the last six. The Thunder beat the Spurs, 100-88 on Thursday night, giving 7.5. The Pacers are 16-5 last 21 matchups on the over bet against Oklahoma City.  Basketball Odds:  Indiana a 2.5-point betting odds favorite. Total: 191.0.

Memphis Grizzlies (51-24 SU, 42-32-1 ATS, 30-44-1 O/U) at Los Angeles Lakers (39-36 SU, 31-43-1 ATS,  38-36-1 O/U)

Intangibles:

Memphis won the first two games of the series at home.
The Lakers are a half game up on Utah for the last playoff spot in the East.
Dwight Howard has 14 straight double-doubles

Last game: (1/23/13) Memphis (-3.5) over LA Lakers, 106-93.

Keys to Success: The Grizzlies have won four straight as they appear to firing on all cylinders with Marc Gasol (abdominal) back in the lineup. They are fifth in the Western Conference but 4.5 games behind the Spurs in the Southwest Division. Point guard Mike Conley has seven 20-point outings in his last 10 games. He'll be going up against Steve Blake, as Steve Nash (hip) is not expected to play. That puts more pressure on Kobe Bryant to score and defend. Bryant has averaged 21 points, 12.5 assists and 10 rebounds in his past two games and played 47 minutes against Dallas in an easy win on Tuesday night. He may need to go 48 tonight.

The Grizzlies are coming off a 94-76 win over Portland on the road on Wednesday, giving 7.5. The Lakers beat Dallas at home, 101-81, giving 3.5 on Tuesday. NBA Odds: The Los Angeles Lakers are a 2.5-point betting odds favorite. Total: 194.0.
