Ok, Hoop Heads we are back at it again with the Fast Break NBA game predictions. I’m 128-84 so still on the winning side of things.
Didn’t bounce back in the best way but I went 4-3 so got a winning percentage but need to go much better today.
Tonight we have six games in the NBA, the Washington Wizards against the Toronto Raptors, the Indiana Pacers against the Miami Heat.
The Golden State Warriors against the Brooklyn Nets, the Detroit Pistons against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The Chicago Bulls against the Phoenix Suns and finally the Denver Nuggets against the Los Angeles Lakers.
Washington Wizards Vs Toronto Raptors
The rematch that the Toronto Raptors had circled on their calendar. After losing the first matchup Toronto wants this game bad.
Toronto hear all the talk that they can’t beat the top teams in the east. Coming out today they are looking to make a statement.
Kyle Lowry seems to have found his rhythm and Toronto is clicking winning five out of six games since their loss to Washington.
Washington has been up and down and are coming in to this game after losing to the heat yesterday.
I’m going Toronto 115-112 as Toronto steals game two.
Indiana Pacers Vs Miami Heat
The Pacers and the Heat are very similar teams either they are scorching hot or freezing cold.
Both have go to players who play the two guard and have been bounced around the league for the beginning of their career.
So it will come down to Victor Oladipo Vs Dion Waiters, who can be more influential to their team?
I’m going Indiana 114-106 as Victor Oladipo and the Pacers as they hit the hot spots.
Golden State Warriors Vs Brooklyn Nets
Yea, Brooklyn can’t beat Golden State. Golden State were down big to Philadelphia a much better team then Brooklyn and ended up winning by double digits.
I’m going Golden State 127-107 as we get some playing time from Jordan Bell.
Detroit Pistons Vs Minnesota Timberwolves
I can say I have been waiting for this game. Detroit put a whooping on the Timberwolves at their home earlier in the season.
It’s time for some payback the Wolves are currently third in the west and on a three game winning streak.
Minnesota are coming into this game holding all three of their previous competitors under 100 and winning by double digits.
This is a game Minnesota needs to win keep the momentum going. I said this team can go 9-1 over this stretch and I stand by it.
I’m going Minnesota 105-99 as Minnesota keeps improving on defense.
Chicago Bulls Vs Phoenix Suns
Phoenix found the team the are better than. Yes, the Phoenix Suns have stolen some games against better teams when they come out hot.
Don’t let that fool you they still are a lottery team and won’t win many games. They will win this game though.
Chicago aren’t a good team but Lauri Markkanen is. The Bulls look a lot like the New York Knicks of last year.
I’m going Phoenix 113-98 as Lauri Markkanen has a good game but Devin Booker has a better one.
Denver Nuggets Vs Los Angeles Lakers
Denver is better than the Lakers. Now will Denver beat the Lakers is the question? I’m going with a yes.
This is one of those trap games for the Nuggets but the Lakers are coming off a thrashing loss to the Phoenix Suns.
The score wasn’t even talk about though it was more about Lonzo Ball walking away from an altercation between his team and the Suns.
Was it a smart decision sure, will it sit well with most Laker fans? Probably not, taking everything into consideration the Lakers are in a bad place.
I’m going Denver 119-106 as Denver Gets their tenth win.
