Ok, Hoop Heads we are back at it again with the Fast Break NBA game predictions. I’m 98-65 so still on the winning side of things.
Stand by my statement on my twitter @UnderdogsSports that the Minnesota Timberwolves are the best team in the Northwest division.
After watching the Utah Jazz and Portland Trailblazers ball fall in their games last night it seems more evident but that’s not what you came for.
You came for fast break predictions so let’s get to it. Tonight we have 11 games in the NBA, the Los Angeles Clippers against the New Orleans Pelicans.
The Atlanta Hawks against the Washington Wizards, the Memphis Grizzlies against the Houston Rockets.
The Sacramento Kings against the New York Knicks, the Los Angeles Lakers against the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Cleveland Cavaliers against the Dallas Mavericks, the Chicago Bulls against the San Antonio Spurs.
The Philadelphia 76ers against the Golden State Warriors, Minnesota Timberwolves against the Phoenix Suns.
The Brooklyn Nets against the Utah Jazz, and finally the Orlando Magic against the Denver Nuggets so without further ado let’s get started!
Los Angeles Clippers Vs New Orleans Pelicans
Two teams fighting for the 6th – 8th seed is basically what tonight game is. Both have dominant front courts who will need to take over for their teams.
Blake Griffin and Demarcus Cousin will be the key matchup for tonight games as both are looking to continue with the early success.
Another fun matchup will be Lou Williams and Jrue Holiday as both continue to increase their scoring.
I’m going New Orleans 116-112 with Demarcus Cousin being the difference maker.
Atlanta Hawks Vs Washington Wizards
Atlanta Hawks continue to follow the game plan, make it fun but lose for the pick.
I’m going Washington 121-117 as the Hawks fall in crunch time
Memphis Grizzlies Vs Houston Rockets
The rematch got it wrong the first time but not this time. The Houston Rockets look like the third best team in the NBA.
The Memphis Grizzlies defense has always been a problem for the Houston Rockets but James Harden is back on his MVP hunt.
This game should be completely different as the Rockets will come out the gate hot.
I’m going Houston 123-114 as James Harden does it again with the unbelievable numbers.
Sacramento Kings Vs New York Knicks
The Kings stunned one playoff hopeful team can they do it again? I think not the Kings are destined for a lottery pick.
Which is fine as they continue to give their young studs more playing time as they continue to gel.
As for the Knicks, Kristaps Porzingis would like for you to throw his name in the MVP race. The Knicks seem to being searching for the playoffs and tonight game should help.
I’m going New York 115-111 as the Kings young players look good in the defeat.
Los Angeles Lakers Vs Milwaukee Bucks
Don’t let the Lakers fool you they aren’t good and won’t stand a chance tonight.
I’m going Milwaukee 121-107 as Giannis Antetokounmpo and Eric Bledsoe continue to gel.
Cleveland Cavaliers VS Dallas Mavericks
I don’t want to get started let’s just say if Cleveland loses I’m done.
I’m going Cleveland 110-100
Chicago Bulls Vs San Antonio Spurs
It’s the Spurs Vs Lauri Markkanen how do you think this is going to go?
I’m going San Antonio 117-102 as Spurs get back to winning.
Philadelphia 76ers Vs Golden State Warriors
Philadelphia may be going to the playoff but they definitely aren’t beating the defending Champs. It will be a fun game to watch.
As Embiid and Draymond trash talk all night and Steph and Ben gives us unbelievable plays.
I’m going Golden State 126-107 as Golden State just over powers Philadelphia.
Minnesota Timberwolves Vs Phoenix Suns
This is it folks this is the blowout from the Minnesota Timberwolves that we all been waiting for. Jimmy Butler, Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns should all explode tonight.
The Suns are not even close to the Timberwolves level and it will show as the wolves start the winning streak again.
I’m going Minnesota 127-100 as the second unit gets plenty of time in the fourth.
Brooklyn Nets Vs Utah Jazz
Can the Nets beat two Northwest division teams back to back? Don’t think so but the Utah Jazz have been struggling.
This game needs to be one the Jazz win as their confidence has to be taking a huge hit especially Ricky Rubio.
This game the Jazz need to set the tone early or the Nets could steal another win.
I’m going Utah 109-106 as D’Angelo Russell can’t win it in the end.
Orlando Magic Vs Denver Nuggets
Hate me or not but Orlando seems like the better team in this matchup. I really love what Aaron Gordon has become.
Allowing him to be the focal point of this team is really paying off and him and Elfrid Payton seem to click.
Terrance Ross also seem to have found his role in this team as well and the Magic look like they could be a playoff team.
I’m going Orlando 116-112 as Aaron Gordon out plays Paul Milsap and Elfrid shines over Jamal Murray.
