NBA Game Previews for December 13th, 2010
New Orleans Hornets at Miami Heat- 7:30 P.M. EST/ 4:30 P.M. PST- NBA League Pass
Hornets- (14-9) Heat- (17-8)
The New Orleans Hornets had one of the best starts in the NBA, but their success is quickly dying out. The Hornets started the season 8-0, and one of their wins came against the Miami Heat. However, this meeting will be in Miami and the Hornets will have a tough time matching up with Wade, James and Bosh.
The Miami Heat have won eight consecutive games and are finally beginning to play like a team. The Heat should beat the Hornets this time around, and the home crowd should give them a boost.
Prediction: Heat win
Indiana Pacers at Chicago Bulls- NBA TV- 8:00 P.M. EST/ 5:00 P.M. PST
Pacers- (11-11) Bulls- (14-8)
The Indiana Pacers are having a mediocre season with many highs and lows. The Pacers have beaten teams like the Heat and Lakers, but they have also lost to teams like the the Bucks and 76ers. The Pacers have to play a “perfect” game in order to beat the Bulls.
The Bulls finally have the services of Carlos Boozer, and his return has really benefited the team. The Bulls are coming off a win vs. the Lakers, and they hope to extend their winning streak to six.
Prediction: Bulls win
