Brooklyn Nets to defeat the Philadelphia 76ers
All of a sudden, the Brooklyn Nets look like an NBA team. It is far too little, far too late, given they have the worst record in the NBA and are already eliminated from the playoff race, but the Nets have won three of their past four games – albeit against scrub teams like the Detroit Pistons and Phoenix Suns. Never the less, winning form is good form and, while the Philadelphia 76ers have had a couple of surprise upsets against the Boston Celtics and Chicago Bulls, this will be their third game on the road in a row and, with young rookies like Dario Saric forced to carry much of the load, we think Brook Lopez and the Nets can score another late win in this one.
Atlanta Hawks to defeat the Phoenix Suns
The tank a thon in Phoenix is well and truly on. Make no mistake, the Atlanta Hawks have become among the worst teams in the NBA, sliding down to sixth in the east and putting themselves in danger of missing the playoffs, with just a three game buffer on the Chicago Bulls. But with half their roster on the shelf due to “injury” the Suns are hunting a draft pick as high as they can get to add to young up and comers like Devin Booker and Marquese Chriss. Booker is coming off a serious 70 point game against the Boston Celtics, but, symptomatic of that team’s position, the players celebrated it like a win, even though they went stat padding, giving him 28 points in the last term because he took all of the shots. In this battle of the losers, the Hawks have a seven game losing streak, while the Suns are on an eight game skid. The Hawks haven’t looked like winning since big man Paul Millsap went down with injury a little over a week ago, but one of these teams has to break their futility streak and surely it will be the Hawks on their home deck against a team that might struggle to compete in the NBA D-League.
Golden State Warriors vs. Houston Rockets over game score
It’s going to be a shoot out, people. The top two offences in the NBA go head to head in a game that should be an absolute doozy. James Harden is the presumptive NBA MVP and has the Rockets absolutely cooking, while the Golden State Warriors – even without scoring machine Kevin Durant – are on a six game tear, pouring in in excess of 111 points in five those. The Rockets have won seven of eight, including dropping 139 on the Lakers and have perhaps been even more impressive than the Warriors. This is an unmissable match up pitting the likes of reigning two time MVP Stephen Curry and sharp shooter Klay Thompson against Harden and his band of three point shooters. Records might just be broken and, for our followers’ sake, we hope so.
Washington Wizards to defeat the Los Angeles Lakers
Book it in. The Washington Wizards might just be the hottest team in the NBA. And point guard John Wall might just have put his name in the MVP conversation thanks to a remarkable tour de force against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, highlighting a superb season for the Wizards’ floor general. The LOLkers have won just two of their past 16 match ups. This one could get ugly very quickly.
