There are six game on tap for Tuesday’s NBA slate, but there are no big time matchups to speak of. Tipoffs range from 7 to 10:30 p.m. ET.

The Portland Trail Blazers and Toronto Raptors will face off in one of the first games of the night. The Trail Blazers have struggled to find a groove and might be without CJ McCollum, who is questionable with an illness, for the contest. The Raptors are staying afloat while multiple starters are out of commission. Fred VanVleet was added to the list of injuries Monday and will miss the contest with a hamstring issue.

The final game of the night will be between the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers. It doesn’t look like it’ll be a competitive game on paper, but we could see big numbers from LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and company in a blowout.

Here are the initial lines for tonight’s nine-game slate on DraftKings Sportsbook:

Pistons @ Cavaliers (+3.5, 215) 7:00 p.m. ET
Trail Blazers @ Raptors (-1.5, 220) 7:00 p.m. ET
Thunder @ Nets (+2.5, 216.5) 7:30 p.m. ET
Timberwolves @ Grizzlies (-3) 8:00 p.m. ET
Kings @ Suns (-6.5, 226.5) 9:00 p.m. ET
Knicks @ Lakers (-13, 220.5) 10:30 p.m. ET
