It's a busy night in the NBA with 10 games on the slate. There's a lot of injury news we are still waiting on that could change some things, so make sure you follow the news. The lines indicate there will be a lot of close games tonight. Eight games have lines of 3.5 or under and six games have a total of at least 225 points.

Portland Trail Blazers (-3.5) at Phoenix Suns, 9 p.m. ET

If you listen to Alarm After Hours last night on Sirius XM Fantasy Sports radio, I mentioned the Blazers opened up as one-point favorites and I jumped on the line. I am not surprised it has increased. The Blazers are making a playoff push and Damian Lillard returned on Wednesday helping the Blazers win. The Suns are without Kelly Oubre and Cam Johnson and DeAndre Ayton is doubtful. The Suns have lost four straight games and are 7-20 ATS in the last 27 games and 6-20-1 ATS in their last 27 at home. The Suns are 1-4 ATS in their last five games, while the Blazers are 3-2.

Memphis Grizzlies (+7) at Dallas Mavericks, 8:30 p.m. ET

The Grizzlies were on the precipice of falling apart, but have had some big wins recently as they hold on to the eighth seed in the Western Conference. After losing five straight games, the Grizzlies beat the Lakers and blew out the Hawks and Nets on the road. This one won't be easy, but the Grizzlies will keep it close. Luka Doncic isn't 100 percent and Tim Hardaway Jr. is out. Dorian Finney-Smith is questionable for Dallas. The Mavericks haven't been great at home with a 17-14 record and 13-18 ATS. The Grizzlies are 15-15-1 ATS on the road.
