There’s a busy slate tonight in the NBA. There’s a total of 10 games. Here’s what to watch and what to avoid.
7:00pm EST: Atlanta Hawks (4-10) @ Detroit Pistons (4-10)
A real snoozer in Little Caesars Arena. A reason to tune in to this one? Trae Young? Maybe?
7:00pm EST: Charlotte Hornets (6-9) @ Washington Wizards (4-8)
I’ll be tuning in to this one because Bradley Beal is on my fantasy team. I can’t find any other reason for you all to take interest in to this game unless you’re a diehard Hornets or Wizards fan.
7:30pm EST: Sacramento Kings (6-7) @ Brooklyn Nets (6-8)
Kyrie is out (shoulder), De’Aaron Fox is out (ankle), Marvin Bagley isn’t playing (thumb), and Bogdan Bogdanović is questionable (hamstring) but will most likely suit up tonight. The Kings have been playing great basketball and most recently beat the Boston Celtics who are 11-3. They move the ball and are fun to watch.
8:00pm EST: Los Angeles Lakers (12-2) @ Oklahoma City Thunder (5-9)
This is a great matchup, and things are truly starting to heat up once we get to this portion of the schedule. LeBron James and Anthony Davis are both top 5 in my MVP power rankings and face a gritty OKC squad in which veteran Chris Paul is near the top of the steals per game leaderboard (2.00).
8:00pm EST: Miami Heat (10-3) @ Chicago Bulls (5-10)
This should be a lopsided game in Miami’s favor. They are playing fantastic behind the leadership of their star, Jimmy Butler. Chicago can score the ball quite well with Zach Lavine at the forefront.
8:00pm EST: San Antonio Spurs (5-10) @ Philadelphia 76ers (9-5)
Fresh off his a game in which he hit his first career three pointer, will Ben Simmons follow it up with another stellar performance? Joel Embiid vs LaMarcus Aldridge is an interesting matchup down low. The Spurs are 1-6 on the road this season and it doesn’t get any easier tonight in Philly.
8:30pm EST: Cleveland Cavaliers (4-10) @ Dallas Mavericks (9-5)
The Mavs are looking like a playoff team at this early stage in the season. Will Luka Dončić get another triple double tonight? The lowly Cavaliers will allow him every opportunity to do so.
9:00pm EST: Golden State Warriors (3-13) @ Utah Jazz (9-5)
This would have been a marquee matchup…a season ago. Draymond Green is out (heel) so that makes this matchup even more lopsided. If the Jazz, led by Donovan Mitchell (24.9 ppg) don’t win by at least 15, I’ll be surprised.
9:00pm EST: Boston Celtics (11-3) @ Denver Nuggets (10-3)
Here we go! These two teams both sit 2nd in their respective conferences. This matchup is a great one all around with an embarrassment of riches on both teams. Depth is the name of the game in this one. It’ll be a nail-biter with plenty of star power in Kemba Walker (Celtics) and Nikola Jokić (Nuggets) leading their squads.
10:30pm EST: Houston Rockets (11-4) @ Los Angeles Clippers (10-5)
The night cap is worth staying up for on the east coast. The stars jump out to you. We got James Harden vs Kawhi Leonard, and two former teammates facing off in Russell Westbrook and Paul George. The Rockets took the first contest 102-93. It’s worth noting that the Los Angeles Clippers were without Paul George in that one.
