Utah Jazz @ Minnesota Timberwolves

Utah Jazz @ Minnesota Timberwolves The Jazz start with Rudy Gobert, who impressed in their season opener. The Jazz beat the Nuggets in game one of 82 but it doesn’t get any easier in game two. The three point shot will need to go down for the Jazz. The Minnesota Timberwolves were able to stay in the game against the Spurs. We all know the Spurs are a tough team with or without Kawhi Leonard because of their coach Gregg Popovich. There were a lot of good signs for the…

Orlando Magic @ Brooklyn Nets

Orlando Magic @ Brooklyn Nets The Orlando Magic have a solid starting five and solid 6th man coming off the bench. The rest of their team remains in question. They do have a very athletic team that can get up and down the court. The Nets lost Jeremy Lin for the season after he suffered an injury in their first game. They were able to pick up D’Angelo Russell from the Lakers and will be relying on him even more now. The Nets defense is bad, allowing 140 points to…

Portland TrailBlazers @ Indiana Pacers

Portland Trailblazers @ Indiana Pacers The Trailblazers are coming off a performance where Damian Lillard and Pat Connaughton let it fly. They were without C.J. McCollum but he will be back this game after serving his one game suspension. The Trailblazers got a lot of quality minutes from numerous players off the bench. They won the rebounding battle 57-33 against the Suns. That’s a dominate performance inside. The Pacers are coming off a game in which they beat the Nets. The Pacers were able to spread the floor and had…

Cleveland Cavaliers @ Milwaukee Bucks

Cleveland Cavaliers @ Milwaukee Bucks LeBron vs. Giannis. Can’t wait. Derrick Rose looks like he’s back from his Chicago days. This offense gives him enough space to dribble through defenses and get to the hoop. Jeff Green will be huge for this team, he might be the most underrated move in the offseason. The Cavaliers didn’t shoot well from behind the arc in their first game but I expect it to improve and improve fast. LeBron James just missed a triple double in their first game. Giannis Antetokoumnpo is the…

Detroit Pistons @ Washington Wizards

Detroit Pistons @ Washington Wizards In the Pistons win against the Hornets, they picked up 14 steals and will need to keep that defensive pressure against the Wizards. Stanley Johnson will need to play better after shooting 0-13 from the field in their opener. The good news is that Avery Bradley, Tobias Harris, and Langston Galloway stepped up. Galloway is an asset to have off the bench. The Wizards are a tough team to play when they’re at home. John Wall and Bradley Beal don’t get enough attention. They’re easily…

Atlanta Hawks @ Charlotte Hornets

Atlanta Hawks @ Charlotte Hornets The Hawks are coming off a win against the Dallas Mavericks. The Hawks will be able to shoot the three point shot this year with Marco Belinelli leading the charge. Dennis Schroder has proved himself to be a good PG in this league but will have his hands full with Kemba Walker. The Hornets are coming off a loss in Detroit against the Pistons. Malik Monk will need to play better coming off a poor outing. He shot 1-9 in his first game but he…

Boston Celtics @ Philadelphia 76ers

Boston Celtics @ Philadelphia 76ers The Celtics lost Gordon Hayward but they still have a very formidable team surrounding Kyrie Irving. Kyrie wanted to leave Cleveland to be “the guy” and now is his chance. The Celtics are 0-2 on the season, losing to two tough teams, Cleveland and Milwaukee. They’ll get back on track against the 76ers. Jaylen Brown has played well this year and will continue to get a lot of minutes. The 76ers will be a tough team this season. Ben Simmons might be the best player…

L.A. Clippers @ L.A. Lakers

L.A. Clippers @ L.A. Lakers First let me start by saying Austin Rivers should not be a starter in the NBA. Milos Teodosic and Patrick Beverly have big shoes to fill after the Clippers traded Chris Paul. The Clippers loaded their roster with shooters around Blake Griffin. Danilo Galinari, Lou Williams, Sam Dekker, and Wesley Johnson will be relied on throughout the year. With this lineup the ball needs to move because of their lethal shooters but don’t tell Doc Rivers that, he’ll want Austin to score 30 a night….

New York Knicks @ Oklahoma City Thunder

New York Knicks @ Oklahoma City Thunder The Knicks decided to part ways with Carmelo Anthony two days before media day. Unfortunately, they’ll have to face him in their first game on the road. The Knicks will struggle this year relying on Kristaps Porzingis, who I don’t feel is ready to be “the guy” just yet. I won’t be surprised if Tim Hardaway Jr. takes the keys to the franchise. The Thunder are stacked this season with the defending MVP Russell Westbrook, Paul George, Carmelo Anthony, and Steven Adams. The…

Chicago Bulls @ Toronto Raptors

Chicago Bulls @ Toronto Raptors No Jimmy Butler. No Dwayne Wade. Oh yeah, no Bobby Portis or Nikola Mirotic either. We also learned not to pick a fight with Bobby Portis, he might just break a bone in your face. The Bulls obviously are in a rebuilding phase. I don’t know how they’ll defend Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan. Lowry and DeRozan play well together and have athletic pieces around them like Norman Powell and Serge Ibaka. The Raptors have their nucleus back and will take advantage of this weak…
