WHEN will Ben Simmons return to action for the Philadelphia 76ers?
That is the big question hovering over this week’s NBA schedule.
Even if the Australian phenom does not pass fit, there is plenty for punters to sink their teeth into this Tuesday.

NBA multi tips for Tuesday, November 28
- 76ers to beat Cavaliers – $2.27
- Trail Blazers to beat Knicks – $1.68
- Celtics to beat Pistons – $1.37
- Clippers to beat Lakers – $1.47
Cleveland Cavaliers at Philadelphia 76ers
11am AEDT – Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia
Cavaliers – $1.66
76ers – $2.27
Star centre Joel Embiid is set to return for the 76ers, but we won’t know about Simmons and his swollen elbow until the pre-game shootaround. TJ McCollum is in white-hot form, however, so we are plumping for Philly to end the Cavs’ seven-game winning streak – even if their Aussie sensation does not play.
Portland Trail Blazers at New York Knicks
11:30am AEDT – Madison Square Garden, New York
Trail Blazers – $1.68
Knicks – $2.24
With this fixture, Portland will complete a five-game eastern swing that has so far produced three wins and one defeat. The Knicks, meanwhile, come in off consecutive losses to the conference-leading Houston Rockets and the far less impressive Atlanta Hawks. The Blazers need to sharpen up on D, but they should be good enough.
Detroit Pistons at Boston Celtics
11:30am AEDT – TD Garden, Boston
Pistons – $3.20
Celtics – $1.37
The Pistons are enjoying a fine campaign, although three defeats in their last five outings have brought them back to the pack. Boston’s golden run may have ended last week, but they returned to winning ways immediately with big results against the Magic and the Pacers. Get on the Eastern Conference leaders to extend the gap.
Los Angeles Lakers at Los Angeles Clippers
2:30pm AEDT – Staples Center, Los Angeles
Lakers – $2.77
Clippers – $1.47
The Lakers have struggled to put together anything like a consistent run of form this season, and all the attention on struggling rookie Lonzo Ball does not seem to be helping anyone. The Clippers went nine games without a win until their back-to-back triumphs over the weekend, but we fancy them to make it a hat-trick.
