NBA action continues this Wednesday as four tough matches are scheduled.
The Toronto Raptors sit atop of the Eastern Conference with a healthy 13-4 record and will face the surprisingly-upbeat Orlando Magic (sixth, 9-8), who are going to be hard to defeat at home.
Nikola Vucevic leads the Magic into each game with tenacity in the paint and elite shooting for a big-man and alongside star young forward, Aaron Gordon, there’s plenty of positivity in Orlando.
Despite the absence of All-Star Raptor Kawhi Leonard in their most recent match against the Bulls, the Raptors still managed to win by 39-points. Toronto’s bench is very productive and can match the starters of most sides, especially with former starter Jonas Valanciunas leading the way.
Although they may not have the best record in the league, the Brooklyn Nets (7-10) and Miami Heat (6-10) sit one win outside the playoffs so far this season.
After the gruesome lower leg injury to Nets starter Caris LeVert, the Nets haven’t been the same, unable to fill the scoring void that has been left behind.
Miami are currently on a two-game losing streak that they will attempt to snap at home against the Nets. Block machine Hassan Whiteside is one of the most athletic and skilful big men in the league when he is up and about, but unfortunately has not been able to find consistency this year.
Those are the two big matches ahead of this NBA Wednesday fixture. Here’s how they feature in our multi for November 21st.

NBA Wednesday multi form and tips analysis
With Kawhi Leonard rested up and ready to play, the Magic are in for a rough night.
The best combination in the league so far this season has been Leonard and Lowry, who are both thriving alongside each other.
The Clippers will enter the match as slight underdogs against the 5 – 11 Wizards, who have won four of their last 10 matches. With the Clippers enjoying a five-match winning stint, the value will be taken with open arms. Young Clipper Montrezl Harrell was terrific with 25-points and 11-rebounds in Tuesday’s match.
The back-to-back schedule will not affect the Clippers enough to hinder their brand of basketball.
Sitting atop the Western Conference is the powerful Trailblazers, who should get the job done when they face the depleted Knicks. Without Kristaps Porzingis, the Knicks fail to keep up with most sides, let alone the top of the Western Conference.
Finally the Miami Heat will go head-to-head with Brooklyn. Brooklyn enter with game with two days of rest, but it won’t matter when they face Hassan Whiteside. Young centre Jarrett Allen will find it very difficult to face the older and more experienced Heat big man.
Bonus Tips for Wednesday November 21
Terrence Ross to Score Over 12.5 Points @ $1.82:
A former Raptor himself, Ross will be even more keen to face his old teammates and prove to them that it was a mistake to trade him away.
Aaron Gordon to make Over 1.5 Threes @ $1.75:
Gordon shot 4/8 from beyond the arc in his last match and should utilise his skill again in this match-up.
Kyle Lowry Over 25.5 Points and Assist Combined @ $1.82:
For a player that has the highest assist average in the league and still scores heavily at times, this is a no brainer against the Magic, as they have no guard nimble and experienced enough to properly stop Lowry.
