Cleveland Cavaliers (15-7) vs Boston Celtics (14-10)
The Boston Celtics have been looking really good in the few games. They took the Golden State Warriors to double overtime before ultimately losing and then followed with a win against the Hornets in the game after. With the return of Iman Shumpert the Cavaliers recorded their biggest win-margin this season against Orlando, 111-76. We starting to see the Cavaliers return to full strength and with Kyrie Irving coming back very soon this team is going to be even bigger force in the league.
Cavs W 104-92
Denver Nuggets (10-14) vs Minnesota Timberwolves (9-14)
The Denver Nuggets are on a two game winning streak including one that come from the Timberwolves a few days ago. The Nuggets have been really turning it around after having a terrible beginning to their season. The Timberwolves have a lot of young talented guys, who can get hot very quick. I expect the Timberwolves to get the win against the Nuggets since they had a close game against a few days ago, 111-108, and the fact that they are playing home tonight.
Timberwolves W 95-92
Houston Rockets (12-13) vs Sacramento Kings (9-15)
The Houston Rockets have had a roller coaster of a season thus far. Before the season started they were heavily viewed as a team that can make a playoff push, then got off to a terrible start and had turmoil in their organization. They have since started to bounce back mostly to the will power of James Harden trying to carry this team to victories. If we look at both these rosters and disregard their records, we would think that both of these team would the top teams in the league. I expect the Rockets to get the win in a very close match-up. Sidenote: Rajon Rondo is starting to play like his days during the big three era in Boston, which has been a huge boost for the Kings.
Rockets W 105-104
Milwaukee Bucks (10-15) vs Los Angeles Lakers (3-21)
The Bucks are coming off a huge win against a injured and frankly tired Warriors team. In that victory ,Greg Monroe had 28 points and 11 rebounds and Giannis Antetokounmpo notched his first career triple-double with 11 points, 10 assists and 12 boards.While as for the Lakers, they have looked pretty bad all season. This hurts me to say because I’m a huge Lakers Fan and a Kobe Bryant fanboy.
Bucks W 96-90
