Decided not to focus on one game, but to give you my thoughts on several games I found interesting tonight.
Washington – Portland Both teams had their winning streaks end over the weekend, streaks that helped them come near a playoff spot and keep their playoff spot alive.
Spurs have an amazing 31 wins streak at home at the moment. But with all the media attention, it’s not hard to guess who was the last team that beat the Spurs in regular season in AT&T Center (Spurs home court) – Cleveland Cavaliers.
We got a great game in Canada tonight, a rematch of last year’s playoffs series
Denver Nuggets – New Orleans Pelicans Both teams had bad games their last games. Denver played poorly, after three consecutive wins, losing in Utah and NO, who actually won in Utah two games before, after losing in Phoenix and playing very very very poorly. I watched the final quarter and was amazed about how NO played.
Toronto – Milwaukee Toronto will play today without Valancuinas and Carroll and those are two very important starters for the team. I know that in the NBA, anything could happen and that Toronto won the Spurs with the same line up, but that really doesn’t tell me much. Toronto also won Cleveland, but lost to Phoenix and Denver at home. This is the NBA… More to the point though…
Chicago Bulls – LA Clippers Looking at the way Clippers played on the road and the way Bulls played at home as small favorites or dogs, so far this season, immediately lead me to believe that Bulls got value here, as long as they are favorites by no more than 2 points or underdogs. I decided yesterday already, that if Bulls lose in Boston and LAC win in Milwaukee, this…
Boston Celtics – Chicago Bulls Both teams are aiming for HCA in the first round of the playoffs and if possible, even higher. The problem though, is aside from Cleveland that appear to be one level above the East, the other three places are desired also by Indiana, Toronto, Atlanta and Miami (and maybe by others as well). We are talking about a Conference, that after quarter of a season,…
Sacramento Kings – Utah Jazz Today we got two teams that don’t have title inspirations, but want to make it to the playoffs and Kings know that after their poor start, they really need to win those direct H2H games, surely at home.
Washington – Dallas Dallas won against the Wizards in all of their last 10 match ups, covering in all of the last 5 meetings as well.
