Starting today we will providing NBA daily game picks. Here’s the picks:
Mo (0-0)- My first attempt at this, let’s hope it goes well.
JT (0-0)- This should be interesting
Detroit Pistons (12-9) vs Charlotte Hornets (11-8)
Although the Pistons are on a five game winning streak, they struggle to be offensively efficient. Charlotte is 2-1 in their last three games, in which they beat a very good Bulls team. This game is going to very competitive and a good match-up to watch.
Hornets W 87-83
Hornets W 95-89
Washington Wizards (8-10) vs Miami Heat (12-6)
The Miami Heat have been playing well defensively all season and the possibility of John Wall not playing tonight doesn’t help the Wizards in this match-up. Even if Wall does play this game, I expect to the Heat to win this game.
Heat W With Wall 91-88 W/O Wall 92-81
Heat W with Wall 96-92 W/O Wall 102-90
Phoenix Suns (8-13) vs Chicago Bulls (11-6)
The Suns are a long road trip which will end at Chicago tonight. They are 3-8 on the road is this season and also this season they have eight losses in which they lost six points or fewer. Despite this losing trend on the road by the Suns, I expect the Suns to pull the upset tonight against offensively struggling Bulls team.
The Suns haven’t faired well on this road trip including bad losses to the Nets and Pistons. The Bulls will definitely be motivated after a loss to a Hornets team they are clearly better than. Look for Jimmy Butler and Brandon Knight to have a good showdown.
Suns W 88- 81
Bulls W 94-88
Los Angeles Clippers (11-9) vs. Minnesota Timberwolves (8-11)
The Clippers are without Chris Paul and J.J Reddick, which makes this a very interesting match-up. It’s going to to come down the play of the Clipper’s bench and if they step up and provided offensive production.
Clippers W 96-93
Clippers W 101-88
