We’ve got nine games on tap in the NBA for Thursday, including a few really interesting matchups.
The highest leverage games of the night, the Oklahoma City Thunder take on the San Antonio Spurs in a game that looks like it will matter in determining who will make the playoffs and Miami Heat battle the Toronto Raptors in a game that matters for playoff seeding. Of course, there are also games that look like they could matter for the draft lottery. The Cleveland Cavaliers are favored for one of the only times this season in a home game against the Charlotte Hornets and the Minnesota Timberwolves are trying to end a long slide playing against the Golden State Warriors. The Wolves are playing on the second leg of a back-to-back and have lost 13 of their last 15 games.
