DET Pistons at ORL Magic

Tip – The Pistons started the season off hot, winning their first four games, and looked like one of the league’s surprise teams. They’ve come down to reality of late, losing five games in a row, and dropping to 8th in the East. Orlando sits a .5 game behind Detroit in the standings, and is riding a two game win streak. Detroit has struggled with versatile big men, which is evident by the 39 points they surrendered to Joel Embiid on Saturday. Aaron Gordon has averaged 24.5 points during his team two game win streak, and should continue his strong play on Wednesday.

DEN Nuggets at MEM Grizzlies

Tip – The Grizzlies have cooled down after winning five of their first seven games to open up the season. Mike Conley is still Memphis’ only consistent scoring threat, and will struggle to keep pace with a Denver team that can put up points in a plethora of ways. Nuggets guard Jamaal Murray is coming off a 48-point outing on Monday, but it may be Denver’s big man, Nikola Jokic, who is featured in this outing.

LA Clippers at POR Trail Blazers

Tip – The best team in LA is the one without LeBron James on their roster. Tobias Harris has come into his own as a go-to scoring option, averaging 21.3 ppg and scoring under 21 points only three times on the season. Throw in Danilo Gallinari who is pitching in 20 points a game himself, and LA’s roster is one of the more efficient scoring threats in the league. The menacing Patrick Beverley will look to contain the NBA’s 4th leading scorer, Damien Lillard, on Thursday. If Beverley can disrupt Lillard into a poor shooting night, the Clippers should pull off the road victory.

IND Pacers at MIA Heat

NY KnicksMIA Heat

 

Tip – Josh Richardson and his 21.4 ppg, will be tested come Friday. Indiana comes into town, carrying the league’s 3rd ranked defense, and a 20+ point scorer of their own in Victor Oladipo. Indiana big man, Myles Turner, should play a big role in this one. Turner’s ability to stretch the court will be a handful for Miami’s center, Bam Adebayo, to cover. Indiana’s shooting will put them over the top vs. the Heat.

Tip – The Nets are a pesky team, sitting at 4-6, and coming off a shocking 122-97 shellacking of the Philadelphia 76ers. Nets’ ever-improving big man, Jarrett Allen, impressed vs. Joel Embiid in the Nets victory, holding the league’s 2nd leading scorer to only 16 points. If Allen can continue his stellar play on Friday night against another talented big man in Nikola Jokic, the Nets may be able to squeeze out a victory in Denver.

Tip – Two teams with a single loss on the season face off for maybe the best game of this early NBA season. Giannis continues to add to his MVP resume, scoring a combined 59 points in his two games since returning from injury. Not to be outdone, Nuggets’ Jamal Murray put up nearly 50 points in a matchup with the Celtics, the leagues top ranked defense, on Monday night. This game should go down to the wire, but the combination of the Greek Freak and Kris Middleton may be too much for Denver’s defenders to handle on the wing.

BOS Celtics at POR Trail Blazers

Tip – After an extremely slow start to the season, Kyrie Irving has finally kicked it into gear for his Boston Celtics, scoring a combined 108 points in his last four games. The Trail Blazers have two of the league’s best scorers in their backcourt, but that’s mostly all they have. Boston contains possibly the league’s deepest roster. Boston’s depth, combined with Irving’s improved play, should give Boston the victory on Sunday.
