Celtics @ Timberwolves: This game is only four days apart from when Boston and Minnesota exchanged players. In this game the home court really doesn't matter. Whoever wins probably got the better of the deal. Is Szczerbiak a better wing-man than Ricky Davis? Wally had an exciting game 1 but loses to his former team.Predicted Score: Minnesota wins 97-94.
Spurs @ Jazz: Low-scoring? You betcha. San Antonio has the depth to mutilate any team. But since Ginobili got hurt it hasn't been the case. I wrote last Sunday that Duncan would have to have a big game against Denver to win.
He had 14 and they lost. Again, Duncan has to abandon the team game and score 30+. Manu's impact is huge and we see that again as the Spurs lose in a tight game.Predicted Score: Utah wins 88-86.
Rockets @ Grizzlies: Houston isn't so much a defensive team as they are a bad offensive team that slows down the game. Rafer Alston should be able to go over Bobby Jackson, but hasn't proved that he can so far.
Keep an eye on Mike Miller. He's T-Mac's best friend and has all the potential to score 20. Houston gets pummeled. Predicted Score: Memphis wins 98-83..Our Online Sports Betting Sites Reviews are of the best betting sportsbooks online.
