Tonight at 10 p.m. ET, The Action Network’s King of the Hill 1-on-1 NBA tournament will continue with four games.

If you missed last night’s action, here are the streams and results.

And here are tonight’s games, along with how our NBA experts are projecting them to go. Good luck!

7. Jrue Holiday vs. 10. TJ Warren

10 p.m. ET | Watch @ActionNetworkHQ

  • Spread: Pick’em
  • Moneyline: Holiday -170, Warren +140
  • Over/Under: 17.5

Two of the more underrated players in the league, this is a grudge match between me and Matt Moore. He had Jrue Holiday as a top-10 1-on-1 player entering the tournament, whereas I was very high on Warren, whom I placed within my top 25.

Holiday has the all-around defense and craftiness on offense to compete with anyone, but Warren is bigger and sneakily good from the mid-range. There’s a reason we have this one as a pick’em.

Here are our staff’s picks …

  • Wob: Holiday pick’em, Holiday -170, Over 17.5
  • Moore: Warren pick’em, Warren +140, Under 17.5
  • Phan: Holiday pick’em, Holiday -170, Over 17.5

6. DeMar DeRozan vs. 11. Kristaps Porzingis

10 p.m. ET | Watch @ActionNetworkHQ

  • Spread: DeRozan -2.5
  • Moneyline: DeRozan -260, Porzingis +220
  • Over/Under: 17.5

If you’re a believer that size rules all in NBA 2K — or just 1-on-1 in general — then you likely are intrigued by Porzingis as a sleeper in this tournament.

It is a fascinating matchup against DeRozan, who is king of the mid-range and won’t be able to space out Porzingis like other guards or wings. Will that matter or will his craftiness win out in the end?

Here are our staff’s picks …

  • Wob: Porzingis +2.5, DeRozan -260, Over 17.5
  • Moore: Porzingis +2.5, Porzingis +220, Over 17.5
  • Phan: Porzingis +2.5, DeRozan -260, Over 17.5

2. Kyrie Irving vs. 15. Domantas Sabonis

10 p.m. ET | Watch @ActionNetworkHQ

  • Spread: Kyrie -4.5
  • Moneyline: Kyrie -650, Sabonis +450
  • Over/Under: 17.5

An even more ultimate battle of size. Kyrie, who has perhaps the best handles in the history of basketball, seems tailor-made for a 1-on-1 tournament. But his first matchup is against an athletic big man in Sabonis.

Will Kyrie be able to shake off Domantas and finish over length? Or will Sabonis play bully-ball and come away with the shocking first-round upset?

Here are our staff’s picks …

  • Wob: Irving -4.5, Irving -650, Over 17.5
  • Moore: Irving -4.5, Irving -650, Under 17.5
  • Phan: Sabonis +4.5, Irving -650, Over 17.5

3. Pascal Siakam vs. 14. Kyle Lowry

10 p.m. ET | Watch @ActionNetworkHQ

  • Spread: Siakam -4.5
  • Moneyline: Siakam -650, Lowry +450
  • Over/Under: 17.5

It’s a Raptor-vs.-Raptor battle. Lowry has been around longer, but Siakam is one of the most exciting up-and-coming players in the league.

Will Lowry’s craftiness and expertise give him a shot against the bigger Siakam? Or will Pascal swallow his teammate and show he’s a worthy 3-seed in this tournament?

Here are our staff’s picks …

  • Wob: Siakam -4.5, Siakam -650, Under 17.5
  • Moore: Siakam -4.5, Siakam -650, Under 17.5
  • Phan: Siakam -4.5, Siakam -650, Under 17.5
