Hi everybody! Here are the games going on for Friday, January 7th, and my pick for each of them. We'll see how I do!
Game 1 of 11: (29-6) San Antonio Spurs @ (14-18) Indiana Pacers
Pick: San Antonio by 7.
Indiana has not been good at home, just 1 game over .500. San Antonio looks to snap a 2-game losing streak.
Game 2 of 11: (23-11) Chicago Bulls @ (14-21) Philadelphia 76ers
Pick: Philadelphia by 3.
Yes.... I'm going with the upset, mostly because the Bulls have been not-so-good on the road. We shall see.
Game 3 of 11: (10-25) New Jersey Nets @ (8-25) Washington Wizards
Pick: Washington by 6.
Look for John Wall to have a big game here.
Game 4 of 11: (12-23) Toronto Raptors @ (27-7) Boston Celtics
Pick: Celtics by 12.
Boston Celtics have only dropped 2 at home so far this season, and don't excpect no. 3 here.
Game 5 of 11: (19-17) Portland Trail Blazers @ (9-27) Minnesota Timberwolves
Pick: Portland by 2.
This game may come right down to the wire. Should be a good one. And boy, can Kevin Love rebound.
Game 6 of 11: (16-19) Houston Rockets @ (23-12) Orlando Magic
Pick: Orlando by 15
With this game on ESPN and 8:00 ET, many eyes will be watching Dwight Howard and company pull off the victory.
Game 7 of 11: (24-12) Utah Jazz @ (16-19) Memphis Grizzlies
Pick: Utah by 7.
With the game being at Memphis, this game might be closer than you think. I see the Jazz pulling this game out in the end.
Game 8 of 11: (28-9) Miami Heatles @ (13-20) Milwaukee Bucks
Pick: Miami by 8
Ooops.... did I really just write that? Miami extends winning streak tonight with D-Wade as the high scorer.
Game 9 of 11: (8-27) Cleveland Cavaliers @ (14-21) Golden State Warriors
Pick: Golden State by 13.
Yes... Cleveland loses another one. Monta Ellis with 32 points.
Game 10 of 11: (21-15) New Orleans Hornets @ (25-11) Los Angeles Lakers
Pick: Lakers by 8.
This is a HUGE game for the Lakers, and in huge games, Kobe always comes through.
Game 11 of 11: (20-14) New York Knicks @ (14-19) Phoenix Suns
Pick: Knicks by 17.
In this 10:30 ET tip on ESPN, Amare makes his return to Phoenix. And I hope Suns fans cheer him, at least during the pregame....
Well, that's about it.... and I guess we'll see how I did. Later on in the future, I would like to open a post where other iHoopers can do the same thing, and then the closest person to pick wins the points for that question. Well, happy NBA-WATCHING!
