Few days ago, the Pistons accomplished a feat: they beat the Heat! Tonight the two teams will face each other again in what is going to be a very tight game.
Miami is the top shooting team, and they play very well. Their roster has never been that strong, and they count on their starts, “the three amigos”, Lebron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh.

The Pistons currently hold a 10-10 (10 wins/10 defeats) record. They have shown signs of being a good team, but they also showed signs of being a bad team. Last night they beat the Bulls (92-75), with 33 points for Brandon Jennings. Meanwhile, the Heat (15 wins/5 defeats this season) is coming off a big win against Minnesota (103-82). James achieved his third double-double of the season. Wade’s return made the difference.

Both teams can defend well, and both teams are going to play that match very seriously. So, for me, it’s going to be a low scoring game. Under 201 points with odds around 1.90 is worth a try!

The Knicks won two consecutive games after dropping nine loss, and they renewed with optimism. They are coming off their two best games of the season, against the Nets and the Magic. The picture is not all bright however.
They faced poor opponents, the Magic had to deal with several injured players, and the Nets know their worst start of the season since ten years.
What’s more, Chandler is still injured, and without him, the defense seems shaky. They scored a lot of points from downtown, and that can’t work everytime, too unpredictable.

The Celtics are at the top of the Atlantic division, despite already experiencing losing streaks of four and six games in the first month of the season.
They beat the Nuggets at home on friday, thanks to Crawford (22 points) and Bradley (18 points). Rondo, their best player could be back.
Kris Humphries is back and can contribute a lot off the bench. He’s seen increased minutes with Kelly Olynyk out with an injury.

The teams are meeting for the first time since the Knicks beat the Celtics in six games last season in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals. The desire for revenge will be a boost for the Celtics. With odd around 2.80? Worth a try!

Teams in the NBA often change the style of their jerseys. For worse or for better. It’s a big part of the teams’ marketing.
Let’s see what teams have the greatest jerseys in the actual NBA!

5- Washington Wizards

Very gallic colors! Blue, white and red, just like the french flag! Since the team decided to change its jersey, the resultats are going better! Coincidence? I think not!

4- Boston Celtics

Definitly not my favorite team but what a beautiful jersey! The green is the color of hope, and their symbol is the clover. What’s more logical than a green jersey then?

3- Miami Heat

Not so much to say, this is the champion’s jersey. Classical, this is nearly the same than last year. The roster didn’t change that much, so did the jersey! Continuity… What a good idea.

2- Los Angeles Lakers

A legendary jersey for a legendary team. What’s more we should probably see Kobe Bryant wearing it very soon.

1- Brooklyn Nets

And the winner is… Brooklyn! Don’t talk, just admire. What a perfect black color!

What a question! People often sleep during the night. They don’t know what they miss: the NBA games of course! And tonight is going to be a long but very interesting night!

The first match of the night is going to take place around 1 am. A clash between the Cavaliers, irregular since the beginning of the season, and the Nuggets, who look pretty unstoppable.

The Nuggets should win, but the Cavaliers are so unpredictable, that I wouldn’t bet… Stay away from that match!

Then, around 2 am, the Suns are going to visit the Rockets in a probably very high scoring game!
The Rockets just beat the Spurs in a very tough derby, and will probably continue their good serie against a poor team which just lost its two last games.

Finally, around 4 am, the Blazers are going to host the Thunde, in the big clash of the night. A derby between two teams in a very good mood. It should be a high scoring game, and many stars are going to tread the pitch! Durant, Westbrook or Lilard!

It sounds better than going to bed, right?

The Nuggets are obviously favourite. However, the Nets have won three of the last four match-ups. Even if their season is disappointing so far, Brooklyn has enough good players to beat anyone.

Paul Pierce, Deron Williams, Andrei Kirilenko, and Jason Terry are all sidelined for the Nets.
The key of the game should be Brook Lopez. If he is able to dominate his direct opponent, Kenneth Faried, then the Nets can win this.
Let’s not forget that they have in their roster players like Kevin Garnett and Joe Johnson, both all stars.

Nate Robinson led the scoreline during Denver’s last game, but he is irregular. What’s more Javale Macgee and Danilo Gallinari are injured for the Nuggets.

Don’t you think the feat is possible? Specially in front of their fans!

Highlights of the last game between the two teams (which Brooklyn won):

Two days ago, it was Thanksgiving, so no NBA games! Yesterday night was pretty interesting, but very few surprises, excepting Dallas beaten by Atlanta!
What if tonight was the most surprising night, ever?

First of all, let’s take a look at that famous derby between San Antonio and Houston!

The Spurs have one of the strongest team in the NBA. They have a record of 14 victories for only 2 defeats. They just dominated the Magic last night, without Parker. It will be a game time decision for his return to the competition.
They look pretty invincible, winning 12 of their last 13 games. Duncan has never seemed that young, and their collective way to play is just outstanding.

Houston has improved a lot since last year, and they just won 8 of their last 10 games. The duo Howard/Harden is just amazing, and they have many players able to bend the game: the revelation Omri Casspi, or the gunnner Chandler Parsons.
Even if Jeremy Lin is injured, Beverley can replace him!

It’s gonna be a very tough game, and the odds for Houston are around 3.00! Worth a try!

Now, what if the Nets woke up? They have to take a very tough trip to Memphis, to face the Grizzlies.

Memphis has suffered a lot during the start of the season, but has improved and now appears as one of the better team in the NBA. Their defense is just crazy, and they never give up. They approach every games with the same mentality: fighting on every balls, every possessions, and every actions. Even if Gasol is injured, they can count on Randolph, Koufos or Allen, back from suspension.

In the same time, the Nets continue to disappoint. They have to show a sense of urgency. They have to trust each other and trust the system and what they are doing. Lopez is back from his injury, but Kirilenko and Terry remain sidelined.
The odds for Brooklyn are around 4.50, but don’t you feel the miracle possible?

Mikhail Prokhorov, the owner of the Brooklyn Nets is ready to do anything to win that title. He showed his ambition during the summer, adding Garnett, Pierce and Terry to his team. He will have to pay a very expansive “luxury tax”, but those arrivals should lead the Nets to the Graal.

Those men have enough experience, talent and motivation to turn Brooklyn into one of the best team ever. Thanks to them, we are able to admire 5 all-stars at the same time on the pitch: Joe Johnson, Deron Williams, Paul Pierce, Brook Lopez and Kevin Garnett.

What’s more, they have one of the strongest bench of the all league: Kirilenko came for 3.2 millions, joining Reggie Evans, Mason Plumlee or Andray Blatche. On the paper, hard to see better team. But this is one the pitch that the games have to be won.

Kidd has been nominated as coach. This is one of the main weakness of the team: he has no experience! This is his first contract in that role! He will have to deal with the big pressure on his shoulders, proving that it was not a mistake.

The adversity is also quite strong: the Heat wants to win the title for the third consecutive time, and can count on Lebron James, the best actual player, whereas the Bulls have Derrick Rose back as the Thunder has Westbrook back…

Odds for Brooklyn are around 10.00… Worth a try!
