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?
