Sunday’s NBA action kicks off early in the morning and continues throughout the day, showcasing eight matches that will see the best Eastern Conference teams take to the court.
Starting at 8am AEDT, the Oklahoma City Thunder will host the Pelicans, who lost their first four matches of the season. Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram have been very good additions to the line-up for New Orleans, but they will need to be switched on defensively to handle the likes of Chris Paul and Danilo Gallinari.

Devin Booker and the Suns will travel to Memphis to face Ja Morant and the Grizzlies, who have been surprisingly competitive so far. Memphis is coming off a well-needed long break, having last played on Wednesday in a 120-91 loss to the LA Lakers.
Moving to Milwaukee, the Bucks will host the reigning champions, the Toronto Raptors, in a battle between two of the heavy hitters in NBA East. Pascal Siakam is one of the few players in the league that can match Giannis Antetokounmpo on both ends of the floor, creating a mouth-watering match up.
The final leg of the multi will see the Portland Trail Blazers taking on the Philadelphia 76ers, where Philly centre Joel Embiid will miss with suspension due to his fight with Karl Anthony Towns.

NBA Sunday betting predictions
New Orleans Pelicans vs Oklahoma City Thunder: OKC has played well with the new roster and can handle the Pelicans. Steven Adams missed the game against Portland but will be back to face the Pels, who do not have a solid centre. The OKC bench is improving as the season progresses and will need to be on target to beat the Pelicans.
Phoenix Suns vs Memphis Grizzlies: The Suns continue to defy expectations. After their convincing win over the Golden State Warriors in California, you would assume the Suns would be favourites over the Grizzlies, but they start at $2.08. Devin Booker and Ricky Rubio work perfectly together, blending their skills to form a great front court. Memphis does not have an all-star calibre player, which is why they will lose to the Suns.
Toronto Raptors vs Milwaukee Bucks: The loss to Boston will fuel the Bucks for the next few matches, but they will lift for Sunday’s clash with another Eastern Conference super-team. The Bucks come in off back-to-back games, but the extended bench is filled with good role players that will make up for the short break.
Philadelphia 76ers vs Portland Trail Blazers: No Joel Embiid will make the job very difficult for the 76ers. Hassan Whiteside is a very good rebounder and scorer, but his defence ruins his game. As Whiteside does not need to guard Embiid, he will be a better asset and help Damian Lillard get the Blazers over the line.
