Top 5 NBA Games, 12/30 – 1/4
Even though Christmas and New Year’s Eve consume the best part of our attention at the moment, that doesn’t mean the NBA is slowing down for a while. This week there are several exciting matchups on the schedule, so make sure you save on NBA Tickets and enjoy some great basketball action. Here are the Top 5 Games for the next days:
Phoenix Suns @ Los Angeles Clippers, 12/30
Two of the most exciting teams in the West right now, the Clippers and Suns are battling for the lead in the Pacific Division. This game will see Eric Bledsoe, now a guard in Phoenix, face the team he played for in his first three seasons in the NBA. Finally free from Chris Paul’s shadow, Bledsoe is leading the Suns in points and assists through what has been a surprisingly great start. Remember that this team was predicted as one of the worst when the season started by many “experts”. Save on tickets here.
Brooklyn Nets @ San Antonio Spurs – 12/31
It is common to hear that you won’t get far without a good share of veteran leadership in your team. Well, in San Antonio and Brooklyn there is plenty of it. But, somehow, the results seem to be completely opposite. The Spurs are rolling once again in the West, while Gregg Popovich is (again) more than happy to rest Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili so he can keep his stars fresh for the playoffs. On the other side, first-year coach Jason Kidd has struggled mightily to assemble a winning team. The Nets traded for Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry in the off-season, but now sport a losing record and just had an even bigger loss: center Brook Lopez is out for the year with a broken foot. Get your tickets now.
Golden State Warriors @ Miami Heat – 01/02
Last season, the Warriors stunned the American Airlines Arena with a game-winning layup from rookie Draymond Green in the closing seconds of the fourth quarter. They will try to repeat the trick again this Thursday against the reigning champions. With a deadly backcourt duo of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, Golden State should force the Miami Heat to a high-level performance. Look for LeBron James to step up in what promises to be a very entertaining matchup. Save at ScoreBig.
New York Knicks @ Houston Rockets – 01/03
As great as a player might be, in the end of the day rings are what matter the most. This game will see two of the best players in the NBA still in pursuit of their very first championship. Now in Houston, Dwight Howard looks to bounce from a troubled season in Los Angeles with the Lakers. Along with James Harden, he expects to reach his second NBA final and eventually win the title. The same goes for Carmelo Anthony, who joined the Knicks in 2011 but is yet to take New York back to its winning days. Like their neighbors Nets, the Knicks sit unexpectedly in the lower half of the weaker Eastern Conference. Save on Rockets Tickets.
Oklahoma City Thunder @ Minnesota Timberwolves – 01/04
This is a game of Kevins. Timberwolves’ Love hosts Thunder’s Durant in a face-off between two of the most prolific scoring machines the NBA. Together they combine for more than 50 points per game, while having significant help from their sidekicks. From Ricky Rubio you can always expect astonishing passes and an inimitable flair whenever he is running Minnesota’s offense. Russell Westbrook gives an extra boost in energy and power to second Durant’s efforts – but is out with a knee injury. The question is: which Kevin (and respective supporting cast) will be happier in the end? Don’t pass on the chance to watch such a thriller! Save now.
