NBA | UBET

There are four big games broadcast in Australia this week and all make for interesting viewing. Kicking off the week are the Pacers at the Celtics, hoping to inflict more pain on a Boston outfit struggling since the New Year. The double header on Saturday is a cracker as the Timberwolves travel to Oklahoma, before LeBron and co. head to Texas to take on the Beard and Dwight’s Rockets in arguably the game of the week. The on Sunday, a resurgent Kobe with his new mate Lou Williams head to Utah to tackle Aussie Joe Ingles and the Jazz.

UBET has a full range of markets available across all NBA games.
