NBA Game Watch, Tues Nov 9th

Greetings,

Got an RDO so just sitting back having a punt and keeping track of todays games while i 'work' from home.

When the games start i'll be making running comments, more than welcome to add to my very suspect knowledge.

My predictions for todays games...

All away teams.

Warriors, spurs, hawks, suns, celts and nuggets.

Carmelo will score 50 to impress chicago fans.

Hawks want revenge
Suns find a way
Celts are awesome
Nugs coz of caramelo
Spurs too good
Raptors are awful.

If they all get up, drinks are on me.

Shakey start but seems to be settling into what i wanted. Bobcats trying to beat spurs from the outside, got the hawks doing a number on the magic and the warriors fighting back from a slow start.

Are spurs most under-rated team in the L right now?

How good is the Curry Ellis back court right now???

Ultimate combo guard back court with mad mid-long range shooting.

Magic fighting back, they do have good depth and the hawks really rely on Crawford off the bench to keep them in games.

Spurs still down but i feel good, bobcats will dry up and spurs will grind out a win.

Warriors love the style of game being played right now, book it.

quag, I had to answer, so you don't have a total conversation with yourself!

Bulls to win. Need this before the Western road swing.

spread for the hawks was +9 so feeling ok right now.

Question- lots of people say inside scoring is needed, is it really? I mean, if you have solid scoring from the outside + dribble penetration don't you really just need solid D from your bigs?

Look at the Celts. The bulls with Jord. The pistons with Thomas...

Prediction, Rondo to get 15-20 assists today as Kidd is forced to play well off him and makes it easy for him to deliver crisp passes to Allen.

Bulls might win, still think Caramelo will put up big numbers, or die trying.

Suns are hanging, will find a way, nash is clutch.

Nuggets came to play.

Didn't think Nene was fit, seems to be making an impact...

Yeah, they have started well, Nene was out from what I heard. Get Omer in on him!

I wouldn't be tipping Atlanta over Orlondo any time soon after last year's playoff series...

billo... thats kinda why i tipped em.

Teams get revenge in the season, and Joe Johnson is running pretty hot right now.

Plus Nelson is out and Vince ain't 100%

Its no sure thing, thats why i took the +9 spread.

Spurs and warriors look to be home.

Celts started weak, but i just can't see the Mavs lasting against em.

Hawks need to stay close, i think they will. Joe Johnson has something to prove.

Nugs must stay within 10 so Melo can close in the 4th.

Suns hanging around, Hill playing a throwback late 90's game.

I will take that scoreline at halftime! Bulls 50 - 43 at the half with Rose 2/10!

Nice lads!

late charge from the Bobcats giving me heart problems...

Spur, Hawks and Warriors have done the right thing by me.

Now to see if the suns have any run left, the nuggs need to lift, as do the celts.

Suns are spent i think.

Celts coming back, nuggs are overpowering the bulls.

George Karl is a shit hot coach.

Suns have cost me today. The spread was 9.5, and they lost by 10. Need celts to win if i'm gonna survive.

Nuggs did the best they could.

Should of known Randolph would eat Turk alive.

Melo 20 short of my prediction...

Rondo over 15 assists already.
