Minnesota is enjoying a quality run with their new team. Covington was created in a lab to play for Tom Thibodeau and Karl-Anthony Towns has been emancipated from the shackles of Sheriff Butler. To topple the Trail Blazers, everything will have to run through Towns. KAT struggled in the Wolves’ victory over Portland a few weeks ago, and Minnesota’s revamped defense isn’t nearly stout enough to force another 5-for-18 performance from Damian Lillard. Kyle Cash gives his analysis and NBA prediction.
What can we say – chicks dig the long ball. The NBA’s Greatest scorer is back in action, and it’s about time to start worrying about the Warriors again. Durant is averaging 30 points per game, Klay and Draymond have been spitting on the Cavaliers’ grave all week, and the two-time MVP is back to dropping 40 a game and making shots from the tunnel. That said, bookmakers have the Bucks as the small favorites here!
Now that Chris Paul is back in the mix, the Houston Rockets are on the precipice of a tone-setting run back to the top of the Western Conference. With a healthy Capela, Harden and Paul, the Rockets were an astonishing 50-5 last season; this year, only 10-5. In a world where a three-game winning streak can move you from 9th to 3rd in the conference. Is it time for Houston to make their push? KC has your NBA pick!
It turns out that Toronto isn’t invulnerable after all. Nikola Jokic worked the body against them to the tune of a triple-double as Kyle Lowry looked like an old guy trying to play pick-up with college kids at the YMCA. The Raptors have been the best team in basketball through the first two months of the season, and they are a deep, talented team. But as the season continues on, their lack of top-end talent (outside of Kawhi) might start to poke holes in their armor, and on any given night, they may not have the best player on the floor. The Sixers certainly have stars which is a big part of bettors moving the Sixers to -6. KC has your NBA pick.
