Below you can find picks for today's NBA action from The Stats Zone's top basketball tipsters. All times given are based on US start times.

Friday, December 31st

Phoenix Suns @ Boston Celtics – 1:00pm ET

Chicago Bulls @ Indiana Pacers – 3:00pm ET

Dallas Mavericks @ Sacramento Kings – 6:00pm ET

Miami Heat @ Houston Rockets – 7:00pm ET

Atlanta Hawks @ Cleveland Cavaliers – 7:30pm ET

Los Angeles Clippers @ Toronto Raptors – 7:30pm ET

San Antonio Spurs @ Memphis Grizzlies – 8:00pm ET

New York Knicks @ Oklahoma City Thunder – 8:00pm ET

Minnesota Timberwolves @ Utah Jazz – 9:00pm ET

Portland Trail Blazers @ Los Angeles Lakers – 10:30pm ET

Chicago Bulls @ Indiana Pacers – 3:00pm ET

Chicago Bulls made it five straight wins in the NBA thanks to a victory over Atlanta Hawks last night. Their impressive run of form has already seen them account for Indiana Pacers and they will be hoping for a repeat outcome as they look to extend their winning streak. The Pacers have lost three of their last four games and with the Bulls performing so consistently of late, the road team are favoured here.

Prediction: Chicago Bulls to win

Miami Heat @ Houston Rockets – 7:00pm ET

These two teams are trending in opposite directions and it could spell further trouble for the Houston Rockets as they face in-form Miami Heat. The Rockets have lost their last five games while the Heat are on a four-game winning run so it would be a surprise if the road team were unable to record another victory.

Prediction: Miami Heat to win
