Atlanta Hawks (21-15) vs Philadelphia 76ers (4-33)
This matchup is perfect for the Hawks who have been in a slump lately losing two straight games against the New York Knicks. With that being said, the 76ers have made some moves in bringing Ish Smith who has been a huge boost for the 76ers and rejuvenated the 76ers’ terrible offensive. The 76ers also brought back Elton Brand, who should provide some good minutes off the bench and help the young big men on the team. I expect the Hawks to win.
Hawks W 106-90
Boston Celtics (19-16) vs Chicago Bulls (21-12)
The Chicago Bulls are on a five game winning streak right now in large to Jimmy Butler averaging 31.6 points a game over this streak. The Boston Celtics right now are 1-3 in their last four game as they struggled to score the ball, but the good sign is their defense has been good all year. The last time these teams played against the Celtics were able to get the win at home even with Jimmy Butler scoring 36 points that game. I expect a close game with the Bulls winning at home and also Derrick Rose returned last Tuesday and is expected to play tonight.
Bulls W 105-103
Utah Jazz (15-19) vs Houston Rockets (17-19)
The Houston Rockets have started to look their themselves again. Although they lost 4 out of their last five games, those games were against top competition and they were very competitive in those games. The biggest problem for the Rockets tonight is the fact that they might down to nine man roster tonight. Dwight Howard and Ty Lawson are game-time decisions, Donatas Motiejunas won’t play tonight, K.J McDaniels was sent to the D-league, and Sam Dekker has been out since the beginning of the season.
Rockets W 98-92
Los Angeles Lakers (8-28) vs Sacramento Kings (14-21)
Kobe Bryant is expected to play tonight The Kings have fared a lot better lately since they embraced more a uptempo offensive being led by Rajon Rondo, while DeMarcus Cousins has been amazing all season. I expect the Kings to get the win.
Kings W 115-90
