NBA Game Previews for December 21st, 2010
Oklahoma City Thunder at Charlotte Bobcats- 7:00 P.M. EST/ 4:00 P.M. PST- NBA League Pass
The Thunder are one of the most exciting teams in the league today, and they have beaten many formidable opponents. Tonight, they will be going up against the lowly Bobcats.
The Bobcats are coming off an embarrassing loss the Washington Wizards, and there is a very slim chances the Bobcats even challenge the Thunder tonight.
Prediction: Thunder win
Dallas Mavericks at Orlando Magic- NBA TV- 7:00 P.M. EST/ 4:00 P.M. PST
The Dallas Mavericks beat the Miami Heat for the second time this season last night, and they are hoping to complete the Florida-sweep. The Mavs are one of the hottest teams in the league, and they are playing championship caliber basketball.
The Magic’s new players debuted last night vs. the Hawks, and they played a mediocre game. Tonight, the new guys will be facing a tougher team in Dallas and they will be challenged all night long. Expect to see another confused and sloppy Magic team on the floor.
Prediction: Mavericks win
Philadelphia 76ers at Chicago Bulls- 8:00 P.M. EST/ 5:00 P.M. PST- NBA League Pass
Surprisingly, the 76ers have won seven of the last ten game and they are currently the eight seed in the Eastern Conference. The Sixers almost knocked-off the Boston Celtics and they battling the Lakers for the majority of the game.
However, the Bulls are a tough opponent and the home-crowd will surely help Chicago. If the Bulls match the 76ers’ pace and they try to get to the paint, the Bulls should have no problem beating the upstart Philadelphia 76ers.
Prediction: Bulls win
