Denver Nuggets vs. Memphis Grizzlies

Have the Grizzlies let off the gas?

FedEx Forum, Memphis, TN
Coverage: TNT

It seems to me that the Grizzlies might have just let off the gas here in recent weeks as they have come from the second best team in the League to a mid level team having arranged a losing record since the start of 2015. The Nuggets have been hurting all year; they have been plagued with injury as well as a very poor over all shooting percentage. Both of these teams will be pushing hard for a win in this game but even more so, on the Memphis side given that the Nuggets blew them out in early January by almost 30 points in Denver.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Orlando Magic

Can the Bucks stay above water in Orlando?

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Orlando Magic
7:00 PM ET, January 29, 2015
Amway Center, Orlando, FL
Coverage: FSFL

This is the second of a four game series between these two teams as the Bucks travel to Orlando with an even record at .500. The Magic really dominated Milwaukee back in mid November of last year beating the Bucks by 16 points. Orlando is looking to bounce back a little after their horrible start but they have only won 5 games on their home court and are 17 games below .500. I don’t expect this to be the same defensively driving game as their first meeting was, this game will more about the shooting guards matchup and I see a lot of screen penetration plays to get to the rim and establish and inside presence.

New York Knicks vs. Indiana Pacers

As bad as the Pacers have been, this is a game they will win…

New York Knicks vs. Indiana Pacers
7:00 PM ET, January 29, 2015
Bankers Life Field house, Indianapolis, IN
Coverage: FSMW

These are two teams that just last season were considered power houses in the eastern conference, they both had very big off-season’s one with the re-signing of their all-star player and the other because of the great season they were coming off of. Then Indiana’s Paul George broke his foot and was out for this year and the Knicks simply just forgot how to play basketball all together. I would be surprised if either of these teams made it to triple figure points even if there was no defense being played all game. Read the rest of this entry »

This is the game that the Bulls needed

The Bulls are falling apart and need guidance…

Chicago Bulls vs. Los Angeles Lakers
10:30 PM ET, January 29, 2015
STAPLES Center, Los Angeles, CA
Coverage: TNT

This is the game that the Bulls in my opinion needed to get back a track, a game that will allow them to dominate on both sides, having a little fun and working on the chemistry issues. The Lakers have lost Kobe know for the year and it’s just not looking any better for this team. A lottery pick for the Lakers as well as a big free agency push will be what they need to kick start the next season. Read the rest of this entry »

SUPER BOWL XLIX

SUPER BOWL XLIX

New England Patriots vs. Seattle Seahawks
6:30 PM ET, February 1, 2015
U of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, AZ
Coverage: NBC

The game we have all been waiting for is upon us, the great Super Bowl XLIX has arrived and this year we have the defending Champion Seattle Seahawks battling for a chance to repeat against the experienced New England Patriots. May fans have said that this Super Bowl has been tainted slightly because of the Patriots ball deflating antics, personally I don’t agree, they were the better team and the ball really had nothing to do with their domination over the Colts.

Boston Celtics vs. Los Angeles Clippers

Clippers meet Celtics for first time this season

Boston Celtics vs. Los Angeles Clippers
3:30 PM ET, January 19, 2015
STAPLES Center, Los Angeles, CA
Coverage: FSW2

The Celtics have made it public, they are throwing everything away and starting fresh, after Trading Rondo to Dallas who was the last remaining player from the 2008 championship team they then proceeded to trade Green as well, now struggling to get offense going and the defense looking like it might do well against a pre-school team they stand no chance in LA. The Clippers having just lost to the hailing Cavs will look to get back on track and make a stamen in this game. Read the rest of this entry »

Detroit Pistons vs. Atlanta Hawks

Franchise forgotten but not dead…

Detroit Pistons vs. Atlanta Hawks
2:30 PM ET, January 19, 2015
Philips Arena, Atlanta, GA
Coverage: ESPN/Watch ESPN

News broke a few days ago that the Hawks franchise was going to be placed on the market for sale, price has not been established yet but estimates are around $700 million or more. They say the major issue has been attendance over the last few seasons but all that talk has not faded this Hawks team that has build a great record this season, losing only 8 games this season and only 3 of those at home. Detroit travels to Atlanta to see if they can be one of the few teams to knock the Hawks off of their pedestal on their home floor. Read the rest of this entry »

Chicago Bulls vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

Potential Eastern conference playoff matchup

Chicago Bulls vs. Cleveland Cavaliers
7:30 PM ET, January 19, 2015
Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland, OH
Coverage: TNT

This will be another great game for fans to watch as both of these teams have a lot to prove, the Bulls seem to have allowed a lot of their recent opponents back in to the game late, then having to push hard to come out with the win. Cleveland on the other hand seemed to be falling apart under the pressure of a championship. Trades and cuts have given the Cavs more to work with but that’s never a sure thing, especially in the NBA. Read the rest of this entry »

Dallas Mavericks vs. Memphis Grizzlies

Potential playoff matchup from the West…

Dallas Mavericks vs. Memphis Grizzlies
5:00 PM ET, January 19, 2015
FedExForum, Memphis, TN
Coverage: NBATV

This game has everything a basketball fan could ask for, one of the top matchups at point guard when newly arrived Rajon Rondo from Dallas sets up to shut down Memphis point guard Mike Conley. Both have similar styles has they love to attack the rim and set their teammates up from all over the floor. Another matchup this time deep in the paint will be offensive specialist Zack Randolph against a defensive player of the year in Tyson Chandler. Read the rest of this entry »

New Orleans Pelicans vs. New York Knicks

The Knicks are dying slowly… day after day…

New Orleans Pelicans vs. New York Knicks
5:30 PM ET, January 19, 2015
Madison Square Garden, New York, NY
Coverage: MSG

This will be the finally meeting of these two teams this season as the Pelicans took game one on their home floor and I really don’t see much to stop them from doing the same thing in Madison Square Garden. Rumors are flying around that the Knicks are looking to shut Carmelo down for the rest of the season to allow him to rest and start planning for next season. This year is a lost cause, having won only 5 games this season and 3 of them at home makes for nothing special. Read the rest of this entry »
