Ok, Hoop Heads we are back at it again with the Fast Break NBA game predictions. I’m 107-67 so still on the winning side of things.
Yesterday was a good day with the exception of the let down Minnesota gave us. Still believe they are the best in the division but can’t lose games like that.
Tonight we have four games in the NBA, the Toronto Raptors against the Boston Celtics, the Miami Heat against the Detroit Pistons.
The Houston Rockets against the Indiana Pacers, and finally the Dallas Mavericks against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
So without further ado let’s get started!
Toronto Raptors Vs Boston Celtics
The Boston are streaking and the world sees it. Sadly the man on a mission Kyrie Irving is out today after taking an elbow to the face.
Boston is taking on a challenge that won’t be easy, having Kyrie playing would have changed the dynamic of this team.
Toronto looks like Toronto in which they look good but hard to have full faith in them.
Boston will need a huge game from Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier to be able to keep up with Kyle Lowry and Demar DeRozan.
I’m going Boston 117-113 as Boston shows that their depth is that good.
Miami Heat Vs Detroit Pistons
Dion Waiters against Avery Bradley is the match up to watch tonight. Bradley is making a huge difference for this very good Pistons team.
He is taking on the challenge of leading this teams defense and bringing the grit back to Detroit.
Reggie Jackson is also having a season to remember as him and Andre Drummond seem to be clicking very early.
Then you can’t forget Tobias Harris and him finding his role the Pistons are very good while the heat are average.
I’m going Detroit 119-110 as the Pistons keeps pushing for the number one spot.
Houston Rockets Vs Indiana Pacers
The Rockets are the second team in the Western Conference for a reason. I love how Indiana has been looking.
Unfortunately there is no way that Indiana can play enough defense to stop James Harden and the Rockets from lighting it up.
The Pacers can score but not like the Rockets and I don’t think they can go pound for pound with Houston.
I’m going Houston 124-117 as we keep talking how good James Harden is.
Dallas Mavericks Vs Oklahoma City Thunder
Thunder will be on a two game winning streak after tonight. Best matchup tonight is Russell Westbrook against the Dennis Smith Jr.
I’m going Oklahoma City 119-108 as the big three just scores at well.
