The story here is that Jahlil Okafor is questionable after knocking someone out near a bar in Boston on Wednesday night. If he's out, Nerlens Noel could have a big night for the Sixers, who are 10.5-point road underdogs versus the Rockets. Philadelphia has covered the spread in four of the last five meetings between these two teams.

Spurs at Nuggets, 9:00PM ET

Both Duncan and Manu Ginobili didn't travel to Denver for tonight's game. Boris Diaw and Danny Green are likely to step in for the Spurs, who are 8.5-point road favorites over the Nuggets according to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag. San Antonio is 7-3 against the spread in its lat 10 road games while Denver is 1-4 ATS in its last five home games.

Timberwolves at Kings, 10:00PM ET

Cousins has been downgraded to doubtful to do a back injury, which means Rudy Gay and Kosta Koufos are likely to play more dominant roles for Sacramento tonight.

The Timberwolves are currently 1.5-point road underdogs versus the Kings, who are 5-1 against the number in their last six games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.
