There are a few NBA basketball games on this weekend, with a few of them taking place on Saturday evening. The likes of the Philadelphia 76ers, Washington Wizards, and Dallas Mackericks will all be out to try and get some valuable wins on the board. Below we’ll have a look at 5 of the matches that could be the most entertaining of the night.
New York Knicks vs. Toronto Raptors
The New York Knicks started the first half brightly when these two last met, going in leading 56-53. However, it wasn’t to be their night as the Toronto Raptors put their foot down in the second half and came away as 118-107 winners. The New York Knicks will be looking to get some consistency in winning games when they meet the Raptors this weekend, so they could always be the team to watch. The Raptors aren’t in the best of form either, but both teams are shooting a lot of points so we could have another thriller on the cards.
Houston Rockets vs. Brooklyn Nets
Houston Rockets last met Brooklyn Nets at the Toyota Center on December 13th 2016, where both sides were involved in an emphatic encounter. The game ended 122-118 to the Houston Rockets, and they will very much want a repeat performance of that night. This is a game that could be high scoring again, and a game that should be watched if you are a neutral basketball fanatic.
Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Dallas Mavericks
The Mavericks will meet the Timberwolves for the second time in a week, and both teams will be hoping they can come up with the goods this time around to ensure a win is on the cards. Most games have ended in the 200+ points mark when these two teams have met, so it’s always a game worth watching considering it could be yet another high scoring fixture. The Minnesota Timberwolves aren’t doing that well at all at the moment, and have lost multiple games in recent weeks, so they will be looking to play some good basketball to ensure they walk away from this game with their heads held high. The Dallas Mavericks seem to be in a similar boat at this moment in time with a poor recent record, so both sides will be looking to bounce back in what could be an entertaining affair.
Milwaukee Bucks vs. Atlanta Hawks
The Milwaukee Bucks will want to turn their fortunes around against the Atlanta Hawks, with recent losses to the New York Knicks and Washington Wizards. Their current record is close to even, so a win against the Atlanta Hawks will give them confidence to push on with an average season. The Atlanta Hawks aren’t going to be easy to beat though, as they are currently on the back of a good winning run and will want it to continue.
Orlando Magic vs. Utah Jazz
Orlando Magic haven’t had a good few weeks and they will want to take the game to Utah Jazz to ensure their season isn’t going to falter. Utah Jazz have a good win record this season but they have been slipping in recent games, losing to the Boston Celtics, Toronto Raptors, and the Memphis Grizzlies. They will need to score some points against Orlando Magic and this could be the game of the evening to watch if Utah Jazz manage to turn up.
As you can see from above, there are a few cracking matches taking place this weekend and there could be a few surprises on the cards, so it might be worth to learn how to analyse NBA and make some bets on games this weekend to make things even more exciting.
