The NBA has already raced into its third week of the season and the Golden State Warriors have continued on from their championship-winning year and are the only undefeated team remaining in the league. The Golden State Warriors highlight our NBA November 12 Preview and Betting Tips as they take on the Memphis Grizzlies away from home. As always, our NBA betting tips focus on Thursday games, including any games that are featured on Australian TV.

Golden State Warriors at Memphis Grizzlies (Thursday 12pm AEDT - LIVE ON ESPN AUS)
The Warriors are the only remaining undefeated team in the league and with the MVP Stephen Curry averaging the incredible numbers of 33.9ppg, 5.4rpg, 6.0apg it looks unlikely they will lose anytime soon. Draymond Green has been huge for the side and was a plus 70 last week over their four games. They blew a massive lead to rivals the Clippers but showed experience down the stretch to close them out.
The Grizzlies are currently 3-5 and are having their worst start in years. They are struggling on the offensive end whilst their niggling defence has allowed two blow out victories against the Cavaliers and Warriors. When these two sides met earlier in the season it was a 50-point win for Curry’s men. Whilst this match should be a lot closer, the Warriors will win and beat the line.
Toronto Raptors at Philadelphia 76ers (Thursday 11am AEDT)
The Raptors started the season 5-0 and picked up a massive away victory against the Oklahoma Thunder. Since then they have entered a three game skid against the Orlando Magic, Miami Heat and New York Knicks. The constant travelling could be affecting the side and they will be playing a back to back after losing against the Knicks at home.
The 76ers are a young side and will be fresh after a day off but the developing team has lost by double figures on only three of their seven games. The leads us to think that we should stick with the inexperienced side at the line, especially with the Raptors playing at a low level in their recent matches.
Los Angeles Clippers at Dallas Mavericks (Thursday 12pm AEDT)
This is the second meeting of the season for these two teams and it will be a hostile environment for DeAndre Jordan and the Clippers after his publicised backflip during the offseason. Jordan had agreed to a verbal agreement to join the Mavericks but at the last minute he was persuaded to remain a Clipper. It will create a great atmosphere and the Mavericks will likely come out firing.
However, the Mavericks are struggling this season in scoring and will be playing their second match in two days which could lead to a lot of tired players down the stretch as their depth isn’t as strong as the Clippers.
Chris Paul missed out on playing in the Clippers latest loss to the Rockets and if it wasn’t for a missed goal tending call by the refs they could have easily won the game. Their only other loss came against the defending champions whilst they were able to fend off the Grizzlies on Tuesday. The Clippers will pick up the win but they are notorious for letting big leads slip, so we will go with Mavericks at the line.
Detroit Pistons at Sacramento Kings (Thursday 2pm AEDT)
The Pistons suffered their second loss of the season on Tuesday against the defending champions, however their year so far has been a complete success and they have gone above expectations. Andre Drummond has turned into a beast and is averaging over 20 points and 20 rebounds per game. It will be a big match up between him and DeMarcus Cousins.
Reggie Jackson is also having a perfect start to the year and his clutch performance down the stretch against the Trail Blazers showed he has what it takes to be an elite player. He scored 40 points in that match and he should be able to get the better of Rajon Rondo who is still finding his way in a Kings outfit which will contribute massively to their away win.
