The Chicago Bulls are unsure if Derrick Rose will play tonight against the Miami Heat. This is a pivitol game for both teams. The Bulls are trying to hang on to the top spot in the Eastern Conference, and with the season coming to an end this is a must win game for the Heat if they want to challenge the Bulls in any way. Everyone knows the Heat are a superstar stacked team, but have had a lot of critisim for their poor poerformances. Without Rose in the lineup I think that you have to believe the Heat can win this game; especially, when they are getting a point and a half.
The San Antonio Spurs are streaking at the right time, right before playoffs. I thought the Spurs were very impressive last night against the team they are facing tonight, the Utah Jazz. This game will be played inUtah, but I don’t know if that will be enough to beat a very good Spurs team, especially with a depleted back court.Utahlost C.J. Miles (strained calf) and Earl Watson (sore right knee) in the second quarter of yesterday’s game. The Spurs are playing so well lately, they will get there 12 straight victory.
Surging San Antonio Spurs will do battle tonight with the Utah Jazz who are also playing well as of late. The Spurs can tie there season long win streak at 11 tonight will a win, but the Jazz will have something to say about it. The Jazz have won 2 of their last 3 games trying solidifying a spot in the western conference playoffs. Both teams really have a lot to play for tonight and it will be a matter of who shows up to play. The game should be exciting but it will stay under 211.
Los Angeles got their Angel in the offseason when they picked up free agent, Albert Pujols. I think the Angels are going to impress a lot of people this season and Pujols won’t be one of those superstars who signs and then has a flat performance. I think that the Angels will compete for a pennant in the Western division. The Angels with this game.
The Indiana Pacers will have two pivotal games in the upcoming days and that starts tonight against the OKC Thunder, who just took the #1 spot in the NBA power rankings. The Thunder also look to put a stop to a 2 game losing streak they are on to remain the top seed in the Western Conference. Their lead has shrunk to only 1 game over the San Antonio Spurs after their loss the Miami. The Pacers shot an astounding 57.9 percent from the field in their most recent win over the Wizards. Both teams are hungry for a win which makes the over a safe bet tonight.
The Clippers had their 6 game win streak snapped by the Lakers last night, but that shouldn’t hide the fact that they have been playing well as of late. Tonight, they travel to Sacramento to face the Kings who have won 6 of the last 8 against the Clippers in Sacramento. The Clippers are beginning to establish themselves as a threat in the Western Conference and will be looking for a win tonight. Their most recent loss put the Clippers 2.5 games behind the Lakers in the Pacific Division and they will need to make up ground tonight. The Kings matchup fairly well against the Clippers, but if the Clippers want to be taken seriously in the Western Conference they have to win games that they are supposed to, and this is one of them.
A revamped Miami Marlins will be facing off against the defending world champion St. Louis Cardinals. The Marlins were the most active team during the offseason bringing in Jose Reyes from the Mets. The Marlins have changed name and stadiums and will get to use if for the first time tonight as the regular season kicks off. The Cardinals lost superstar Albert Pujols in the offseason and their pitching has be affected with injury. I like the new look of the Miami Marlinns and have them getting the win tonight.
