Avalanche vs. Sharks

The Sharks make their last jump at the playoffs…

Colorado Avalanche vs. San Jose Sharks

SAP Center, San Jose, California
Coverage: NBCSN

This will be a great game, both of these teams are evenly matched as the Sharks are looking to better their post season position and the Avalanche are looking to work out the final details in their line ups for the playoffs. Both of them are aggressive and play their lines very well… I have seen great puck protection from both sides and I think the opening goal in this one will have to come off an error or a hat trick.

Trail Blazers vs. Jazz

Portland has room to move in this game…

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Utah Jazz
9:00 PM ET, April 11, 2014
Energy Solutions Arena, Salt Lake City, UT
Coverage: ROOT

The Blazers still have some room to move around before the post season as they have hit 50 wins this season, their best season in the last 4 years. They know that the Jazz won’t really put up much of a fight but what is important at this point is that the Trail Blazers get on the same page with their bench and their rotations. The Jazz come into this game trying to defend a home floor that has just seen too much, this team is 16 and 23 at home this season. Read the rest of this entry »

Suns vs. Spurs

Must win for this Phoenix team…

Phoenix Suns vs. San Antonio Spurs
8:30 PM ET, April 11, 2014
AT&T Center, San Antonio, TX
Coverage: KENS

The Suns have to be somewhat happy at the fact that they have this game scheduled now instead of a month ago when the Spurs were on their winning spree… At this point San Antonio will be taking things much less seriously because of their need to heel for the playoffs, this is one of the oldest teams in the League this year and they know they still have a losing road ahead of them. The Suns are almost there, these next 10 days will be a constant fight having to win as many as possible while hoping some other teams in the west takes a fall. Read the rest of this entry »

76ers vs. Grizzlies

Just a few more days of agony left…

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Memphis Grizzlies
8:00 PM ET, April 11, 2014
FedEx Forum, Memphis, TN
Coverage: TSOH

We all know what type of season it’s been for the Philadelphia 76ers and their fan base this season, it almost seemed unfair at times but it’s almost over, they can soon relax and look forward to new things to come as I am sure this team will make a splash in the offseason like no other. Memphis unfortunately for Philly is still in the hunt and they need this win bad as they approve their final chance… Read the rest of this entry »

Pistons vs. Bulls

Difficult season for the Pistons

Detroit Pistons vs. Chicago Bulls
8:00 PM ET, April 11, 2014
United Center, Chicago, IL
Coverage: WGNS

It has been anything but an easy season for the Pistons, they seem to keep losing players and the ones they acquire seem to not live up the hype. This teams was once one of the greats, the most bad ass group of guys in the NBA, other teams were scared of playing the bad boy Pistons. Now they are out of the playoffs again and back to the drawing board to see where they can pick up the veteran leadership they need to run this team right. Read the rest of this entry »

Pelicans vs. Thunder

Cannot underestimate the Pelicans

New Orleans Pelicans vs. Oklahoma City Thunder
8:00 PM ET, April 11, 2014
Chesapeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma City, OK
Coverage: FSOK

This is a strange game for a few reasons, first the Pelicans are more than capable of winning this game, the Thunder have little to play for seeing how they have their ticket punched and they don’t have enough games to catch up with San Antonio for home court. The other is that the Pelicans have that odd way of playing that makes things uncomfortable. They push the inside game out to shooters who actually attack the rim, draw the defense and then hands it off to an open cutter. Read the rest of this entry »

Pirates vs. Cubs

Pirates look to stay ahead of the Cubs

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Chicago Cubs
2:20 PM ET, April 10, 2014
Wrigley Field, Chicago, Illinois

I´m excited to watch this game because of how well the Pirates seem to be playing, their offense has really followed their steam from last season while their defense has been great, only 3 forced errors in 6 games completing a 65% double play out rating. Chicago is struggling as usual, nothing new there, this team needs to move, leave the City of Chicago and rebuild to leave all the crazy drama behind them. Read the rest of this entry »

Bobcats vs. Celtics

Normally a sure thing just isn’t anymore…

Charlotte Bobcats vs. Boston Celtics
7:30 PM ET, April 11, 2014
TD Garden, Boston, MA
Coverage: CSNN

Finally a game over .500 for the Bobcats means a huge deal for them. This game will be a piece of cake for them as they face one of the worst teams in the League. The only way the Celtics could pull this off is because they would have to offer him more than they are worth. The Bobcats look rejuvenated, they are attacking and moving the basketball very well, they have some inside moves to work on but they look good. Read the rest of this entry »

Spurs vs. Mavericks

Dallas holds their own fate now…

San Antonio Spurs vs. Dallas Mavericks
8:00 PM ET, April 10, 2014
American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX
Coverage: TNT

With only 10 days left in the NBA regular season the teams like Atlanta, the Knicks and the Mavs have a very limited time to really work their way into the postseason. They need to win and they need to do so now. The Spurs are resting a few of their players so this is the perfect opportunity for the Mavericks to take this game over and really have a great showing, create some added momentum.

Marlins vs. Nationals

Can the Marlins keep it up?

Miami Marlins vs. Washington Nationals
4:05 PM ET, April 10, 2014
Nationals Park, Washington, D.C.
Coverage: MASN

This will be a closely played game, neither of these teams is going to give the other much way at the plate, the team that gets the first run scored here will win this game, that’s how tight it will be, I actually expect a 1-0 finish or 2-1 at worst. The Marlins have played well lately and the Nationals are coming off a big offseason so it will be interesting to see how they come at this game. Read the rest of this entry »
