Suns are the only perfect team in the seeding games and with a loss of either Grizzlies or Blazers will move onto the eighth or ninth place of the West. This will give them a ticket to the play-in tournament for the playoffs.

Finn entered the Orlando campus on Wednesday night with a 7-2 (78%) Bubble record and dating back to March, before the league went dark, was a stellar 10-2 with his NBA Hi-Roller releases. Wednesday night saw Finn drop a pair of Association tips. The Mimi Heat took an 18-point lead into the fourth quarter of their game versus the OKC Thunder only to lose by one and fail as 3-point favorites. Additionally the Denver Nuggets led for most of the late Bubble affair versus the Los Angeles Clippers only to lose both the game and the cover. Tonight’s Orlando slate of games presents a number of big time contests with the results having big time implications for those teams. Finn has your NBA Hi-Roller Bubble Best Bet!
