Boston Celtics (15-13) vs Charlotte Hornets (15-12)
The Charlotte Hornets are on the two game losing streak and are going against Celtics that has been competitive against every team they have faced this year. It seems every time I chose against the Celtics they win, every time so this time I’m going to chose the Celtics to win this game even though the Hornets have been playing well and are at home.
Celtics W 107-105
Houston Rockets (15-14) vs Orlando Magic (16-12)
The Houston Rockets are a three game winning streak right now, in large do to their defense which has kept opponents to 93.0 points and shooting 39.1 percent from the field in last three games. James Harden has been shooting well from the field in the last three, but has been able to get the free throw line often, In Fact, Harden has made more free throws than free throws attempted by anyone else. This is going to be a close game and the possibility of Elfrid Payton not playing for the Magic tonight will have a huge impact on this game.
Rockets W 103-102
Detroit Pistons (17-12) vs Atlanta Hawks (18-12)
Both these teams are streaking right now, the Pistons are on a three game winning streak while the Hawks are on a four game winning streak. The Hawks’ offense is really hot right now and clicking on many fronts, while the duo of Reggie Jackson and Andre Drummond along with Caldwell-Pope have been leading this Piston team to wins. I expect the Hawks to win at home tonight, since they clicking so much on offense and playing against an average defense.
Hawks W 112-103
New York Knicks (14-15) vs Cleveland Cavaliers (18-7)
Kyrie Irving made his return for the Cavs this season and put out a good outing against the 76ers scoring 12 points, 4 assists, and 2 steals while only playing 17 minutes. The Knicks on the other hand were a four game winning streak before losing to the Magic on Monday. The biggest concern from that game is Carmelo Anthony sprained his right ankle and his availability for this game is questionable. Whether Anthony plays or not, it wouldn’t have a major impact on the game as I expect the Cavs to still easy win this game but what it would have an impact is the final score of the game.
Cavs W 105-88
