Dallas Mavericks at Miami Heat- NBA TV- 7:30 P.M. EST/ 4:30 P.M. PST
The Dallas Mavericks beat down the Miami Heat several weeks ago in Texas, and that was just one of their many big wins. The Mavs are the second best team in the West, and they are playing amazing basketball.
After the Miami Heat lost to the Dallas Mavericks, they held a players only meeting. Ever since that sit-down, the Heat have been a totally different team. Expect to see a much closer battle than the previous one in Dallas, as the Heat will try to seek revenge.
Prediction: Mavericks win
Phoenix Suns at San Antonio Spurs- 8:30 P.M. EST/ 5:30 P.M. PST- NBA League Pass
The Phoenix Suns beat the Oklahoma City Thunder last night, with a shortage of players. There new players did not suit up for the previous game, and it is not certain that they will play this game.
Even if the Suns’ new acquisitions play tonight, the Spurs will surely win the game. The Spurs are the best team in basketball right now and they are currently on an eight-game winning streak.
Prediction: Spurs win
Milwaukee Bucks at Portland Trail Blazers- 10:00 P.M. EST/ 7:00 P.M. PST- NBA League Pass
The Milwaukee Bucks will be without star point guard Brandon Jennings for this game, which will greatly hurt their chances of winning this game. The Bucks have not had a successful season with Jennings, and I expect to see the same without him.
The Blazers will also be without their star, Brandon Roy. However, the Blazers have balance and they should be able to sneak pass the Bucks.
Prediction: Blazers win
Houston Rockets at Golden State Warriors- 10:30 P.M. EST/ 7:30 P.M. PST- NBA League Pass
The Rockets are in the bottom half of the Western Conference and the loss of Yao Ming has really hurt them. The Rockets will have Aaron Brooks back, but he is still rusty after missing a long period of time.
The Warriors tend to play well at home, and they have enough offense power to challenge most teams. If Monta Ellis is having an efficient shooting game, the Warriors are a tough team to beat.
Prediction: Warriors win
Minnesota Timberwolves at Los Angeles Clippers-10:30 P.M. EST/ 7:30 P.M. PST- NBA League Pass
The Timberwolves and Clippers are two of the worst teams in the league. There is not much hype around this game, and very few people will be in attendance to watch this match-up.
Both of these teams will not make the playoffs, and they will be grateful for a win tonight. The edge goes to the Clippers due to their home-crowd and high-flyer Blake Griffin.
Prediction: Clippers win
