Ok, Hoop Heads we are back at it again with the Fast Break NBA game predictions. I’m 89-61 so still on the winning side of things.
Great day yesterday going 4-1 so let’s keep it up! Tonight we have another five games in the NBA.
We have the Los Angeles Lakers against the Washington Wizards, the New Orleans Pelicans against the Toronto Raptors.
The Cleveland Cavaliers against the Houston Rockets, the Philadelphia 76ers against the Sacramento Kings.
Finally the Oklahoma City Thunder against the Denver Nuggets, so without further ado let’s get started!
Los Angeles Lakers Vs Washington Wizards
Revenge game? I say yes the Washington Wizards still have a bad taste in their mouth after losing the fist matchup.
John Wall and Bradley Beal both need to come our firing and lead this team over the lottery bound Lakers.
The Lakers are also coming off of a loss to the super hot Boston Celtics last night so energy may be an issue.
I’m going Washington 115-109 worth John Wall giving his best effort and looking amazing in the stat line
New Orleans Pelicans Vs Toronto Raptors
This game should be fun to watch. The Raptors have the better back court while the Pelicans have the better front.
The Pelicans have been a let down so far this season as many thought the Demarcus Cousin and Anthony Davis tandem would be too much.
The tandem has been amazing it’s just the team hasn’t. On the other team Kyle Lowry hasn’t earned his money yet and needs to step up.
I’m going Toronto 117-112 with Demar DeRozan being too much for the Pelicans.
Cleveland Cavaliers Vs Houston Rockets
The Cleveland Cavaliers defense is atrocious and even if they make it to the finals it wouldn’t end will.
The Cavaliers have beat all the harder matchup while playing terrible against the ones you assume they would beat.
Houston on the hither hand have looked extremely good so far and will be a threat to a lot of teams this year.
James Harden is having another MVP type year but can he lead his team to the promise land?
I’m going Houston 125-112 we it James Harden and LeBron James both having amazing games.
Philadelphia 76ers Vs Sacramento Kings
Make it six folks! The Philadelphia 76ers aren’t a finals team but in the weak east they look like a playoff one.
Tonight matchup should be a fairly easy one for the sixers to continue their winning streak.
The Sacramento Kings understand they are a lottery team and will continue to develop their young stars game.
I’m going Philadelphia 117-108 with Ben Simmons having a monster game.
Oklahoma City Thunder Vs Denver Nuggets
Is it time to hit the panic button in Oklahoma City? Well that depends on how you viewed this team from the beginning.
The Thunder big three is a problem for every team but get pass them who is left? The Thunder face the same problem as last year.
The bench is horrible and even greats can struggle and that’s happening in Oklahoma City.
As for the Nuggets well they can’t begin to really improve until they clear out the log jam they have on the front court.
Denver needs to move some pieces and get themselves a wing shooter to balance this team out.
Denver has a better bench than the Thunder but the Thunder have a much better starting five.
I’m going Oklahoma City 119-116 with Russell Westbrook coming up in the clutch similar to last year.
