Saturday night hoops and there are some interesting match-ups this evening..
We start in the east where the 76ers host Golden State Warriors. Steph Curry has had an on-off last couple of games. From a career hight 54pts against the Knicks to an 8 from 22 from the field against the Timberwolves. He will be hoping to find his range again tonight. All-star David Lee will be hoping to control the boards again this evening, with a career high 19 the other night. Whereas the 76ers are hoping to avoid their 8th straight defeat. Still no Andrew Bynum for Philli, so the All-star point guard, Jrue Holiday who leads the team in their recent slide with 17.7 ppg, will have to orchestrate the game for them.
Score Prediction- GSW 98- 82 PHI.
Next up we’ve got my team, The Chicago Bulls hosting The Brooklyn Net at the United center. The Bulls will be hoping to carry forward the form that helped them to victory on thursday night. But Noah will need support. Deng needs to show his All-star crudentials and come up with some big numbers and Boozer will have to stop the likes of Lopez, Humphries and Blatche cleaning the glass. Also i wonder if Hinrich will carry on playing through pain. As for the Nets, Deron Williams is coming into some form, at the right time for the Nets. With the strength and scoring from Johnson and Lopez to add to Brooklyn’s stingy defense on the road…this could be low scoring, but tight.
BYK 89-86 CHI.
Now we have the Raptors at the Bucks. The Bucks know how to beat the Raptors, their going for their 9th straight. But tonight won’t be so easy. Toronto have acquired a couple of tasty additions to their roster. Rudy Gay the stand out. Monta Ellis of the Bucks is playing some scintillating ball at the moment, he seems to be a dead-eye from down town and as Coach Boylan says “He’s all over the floor”. I think the Bucks will continues their streak tonight.
TOR 92-103 MIL
Last, but by no means least we have the Trailblazers hosting the Timberwolves. This could potentially have one of the match-ups of the night. Damian Lillard vs Ricky Rubio. With Love, Pekovic and Kirilenko sidelined Rubio has the weight of the team on him. Can he hold up? The Blazers on the other hand have the opportunity this evening to get a well-needed result. I think the likes of Aldridge, Batum, Lillard and J.J Hickson will be too strong for the Wolves and the win tonight will complete a season sweep.
MIN 85-102 POR.
