Ok, Hoop Heads we are back at it again with the Fast Break NBA game predictions. I’m 92-63 so still on the winning side of things.
Yesterday was a 4-2 day as the Kings shocked the 76ers on a De’Aaron Fox game winner, we also saw the Oklahoma City Thunder fall again.
That’s four in a row and the Thunder have a whole lot to work out. Tonight we eight games in the NBA, we have the Atlanta Hawks against the Detroit Pistons.
The Charlotte Hornets against the Boston Celtics, the Indiana Pacers against the Chicago Bulls, the Milwaukee Bucks against the San Antonio Spurs.
The Orlando Magic against the Phoenix Suns, the Miami Heat against the Utah Jazz, the Los Angeles Clippers against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Finally the Brooklyn Nets against the Portland Trailblazers, so without further ado let’s get started!
Atlanta Hawks Vs Detroit Pistons
This is a simple your team isn’t better than mines game. The Detroit Pistons look really good in this early half of the season.
Taking on the Atlanta Hawks should be an easy game for them as the Hawks are 2-9 on the season and are lottery bound.
I fully expect this game to be similar to all the previous Hawks game in which the game will be fairly close til the end.
I’m going Detroit 117-109 as Detroit keeps the winning train rolling.
Charlotte Hornets Vs Boston Celtics
Boston Celtics are on the Hunt to 11 straight, after losing the first two games on the season the Boston has been putting the league on notice.
Kyrie Irving has hushed all his critics as he is leading this Boston team to the promise land with his clutch performances.
He also has had a huge hand in helping this team have one of the best defenses in the league. They will be taking on the Hornets.
A good team but are still searching for a way into the top half of the east rankings, Kemba is an amazing player.
They also have young stud Malik Monk and big man Dwight Howard but that isn’t enough to win against the top teams in the NBA.
I’m going Boston 118-110 as Kemba Walker and Kyrie Irving give us a show to remember.
Indiana Pacers Vs Chicago Bulls
Similar to the Hawks and Pistons game the Pacers are simply a better team in the Bulls. I’m excited for when Zach LaVine returns til then we have Markkanen to enjoy.
The Pacers on the other hand has Victor Oladipo who is tossing his name in the Most Improved Player talks.
This game should be over by the fourth quarter as the Bulls can’t just score at will.
I’m going Indiana 119-108 as Victor Oladipo has a spectacular game againstthe Bulls guards.
Milwaukee Bucks Vs San Antonio Spurs
The Bucks have themselves a point guard! He’s really good to and should take away a lot of pressure from Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Eric Bledsoe is a game changer on both ends or the floor similar to Giannis but one thing that makes the Bucks better is being able to have two stars in the clutch.
Matthew Dellavedova hasn’t had a point guard to come in for since he had Kyrie Irving. Bledsoe will get tested early.
As the Bucks take on Greg Popavich and his Spurs tonight but if Bledsoe finds his rhythm with this team early the Bucks are back in talks of top three east teams.
I’m going Milwaukee 122-116 as Giannis Antetokounmpo has a MVP kind of game and Bledsoe makes some clutch plays.
Orlando Magic Vs Phoenix Suns
Just like Hawks and Pistons, and Pacers and Bulls, the Magic are a better team and it will show.
Tyson Chandler is also out so the Magic Bigs will have a field day in the paint as Elfrid Payton gets his assists going early.
I’mgoing Orlando 121-109 as Aaron Gordon gives us some slam dunks and the Magic click early.
Miami Heat Vs Utah Jazz
Minnesota is the best team in the Northwest division! Ok now to this game it should be a fun game.
The Heat are a scrappy team on offense and when they get hot can really put pressure on the opposing te a ms defense.
As for the Jazz they need a win bad to get their confidence back, they have looked awful on defense in their recent stretch.
Ricky Rubio as needs a win as his shots don’t seem to be falling again and he is a key component to this year Jazz team.
I’m going Utah as their defense finds its rhythm but Rubio struggles.
Los Angeles Clippers Vs Oklahoma City Thunder
What is going on in Oklahoma City? I’ll tell you the bench is horrible similar to last year and sometimes to many stars don’t work out.
Russell Westbrook, Paul George, and Carmelo Anthony are all offensive juggernauts but in clutch time who is the go to?
Not even the Thunder players know Carmelo will gladly be that guy but Russell and George seem to differ when they should attack.
Simple explanation the ball sticks with Melo and doesn’t stick enough with Westbrook and George.
They will have a chance to get a win against the Clippers tonight and they need it.
I’m going Oklahoma City as Russell Westbrook tales over the game similar to a last year performance.
Brooklyn Nets Vs Portland Trailblazers
Brooklyn may not be top five pick bad but they are not beat the Trailblazers good, they won’t get blown out but this is an easy win for Portland.
I’m going Portland 121-111 as Portland monster back court of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum are too much.
