National Games

                                Wednesday

LA Lakers                             @            Boston Celtics

(5-5, 10th in the West)                    (9-2, 1st in the East)

ESPN at 7 pm

This is a match-up of two teams who have met many times in the NBA Finals. In this matchup the Celtics have the advantage. They may have lost one of their best players in Gordon Hayward this season but that has not slowed down this great team. The Lakers are young but have some promising talent.

 

Minnesota Timberwolves @        Golden State Warriors

(7-3, 3rd in the West)                      (8-3, 2nd in the West)

ESPN at 9:30 pm

The Timberwolves have great young talent and they are taking on the standard in the NBA, the Golden State Warriors. Golden State has been the story of the NBA for the last 3 seasons, will they make if four?

 

Thursday

Cleveland Cavaliers         @            Houston Rockets

(5-6, 9th in the East)                         (8-3, 1st in the West)

TNT at 7 pm

Cleveland has the best player in the League with Lebron James. Surrounding him is some old talent. The Rockets have a great team with shooters, passers and defenders. The Rockets have a lot to prove, with a recent history of some major collapses in the playoffs. The Cavs have nothing to prove, they have been in 3 straight NBA Finals.

 

Oklahoma City Thunder @            Denver Nuggets

(4-6, 12th in the West)                    (6-5, 8th in the West)

TNT at 9:30 pm

OKC looks very different this season from last. They added some major talent in the off season to surround the MVP from last year, Russel Westbrook. The Denver Nuggets have not made the playoffs in years. This is a chance to see the starts of the Thunder which are Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony and Paul George.
