The Denver Nuggets have been playing some terrific basketball of late. Now, the big test for them is whether they can keep it up as they leave home. The Nuggets will play their last four games of the first half on the road, and it starts with this visit to Cleveland on Saturday night. The Cavaliers aren’t very good, but Kyrie Irving and the Cleveland offense has been piling up the points.
The Chicago Bulls have been short-handed all year, but they have done a nice job staying right around the top of the NBA Central Division. Chicago is one of the few teams in the NBA that has been better on the road than they have been at home. Utah is consistently one of the best home teams in the NBA, and this year is no different. Can the Bulls come out of Utah with a win or will the Jazz continue their home dominance?
Some have been expecting the Clippers to hit a tough patch this year, but they just keep winning. Chris Paul’s bruised kneecap is a little bit of a concern, but he should be back in the lineup soon. He is listed as doubtful for this game. The Phoenix Suns are now under Interim Coach Lindsay Hunter’s guidance. Can the Clippers keep pace near the top of the Western Conference standings or will the Suns pull off a surprise?
The New York Knicks are coming off two straight losses. Last night’s loss to the Pacers came as Carmelo Anthony was suspended. Anthony will be back for the Knicks home game against the Chicago Bulls Friday night on ESPN. The Bulls aren’t the same without Derrick Rose, but they are holding their own. Can they send the Knicks to their third straight loss?
Things just aren’t getting any better for the Los Angeles Lakers. Steve Nash’s return was supposed to be the catalyst for the team, but that hasn’t worked out. The latest breaking news is that both Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol are now out with injuries. The two big men had been struggling, but the Lakers can’t afford to be without these guys.
The New York Knicks dropped their first game at home earlier this week when Carmelo Anthony was out of the lineup, but Anthony returned as the Knicks blasted the Nets on Wednesday night. The Bulls come in with one of the best defenses in the league, while the Knicks offense has been on fire. Something has to give in this matchup.
The Houston Rockets brought a lot of excitement to the team by signing Jeremy Lin and acquiring James Harden right before the season. Houston started out the season pretty well, but they have lost three of their last four games. The Boston Celtics have had a bit of an up and down start, but they currently sit at 12-9 on the year.
One of the best road teams in the NBA matches up against one of the best home teams in the NBA in Salt Lake City on Wednesday night. The San Antonio Spurs are 11-2 away from home this year. The Utah Jazz are 8-1 on their home floor.
It’s a matchup of two teams that experts believe have a chance at snatching the title away from the Miami Heat this year. Oklahoma City is playing terrific basketball so far this year, while the Lakers have been a major disappointment. Los Angeles is just 9-10 on the year, and the Lakers just can’t seem to get on a hot streak. Can Los Angeles pick up its first signature win of the year in Oklahoma City?
The star-studded Los Angeles Lakers are 7-8 through their first 15 games of the season. Mike Brown has already been fired and Mike D’Antoni is in the process of implementing his offense in Los Angeles. Denver is 8-8 on the year, but they seem to be playing better basketball of late. The Nuggets have won four of their last six games. Let’s take a look at this Friday night Western Conference showdown.
