happy tuesday NBA tips
Two picks for today , hopefully the bad streak will stop today , no others comments , just simple NBA free tips .
The first game is Atlanta vs. Toronto
The Hawks are led by Joe Johnson and Josh Smith, who combined for 49 points in a 98-87 win at Orlando on Monday night. That was a pretty big surprise . But they gonna manage to do the same thing at home back to back ? I think NO .
Toronto received a great boost from Chris Bosh, who was outstanding in his return to the Raptors’ lineup . Also , tonight A Bargnani will be ready to comeback and play . TJ Ford is already in the lineup and will share minutes with the Spanish wizard J Calderon .
Bosh, who is averaging team highs of 18.9 points and 8 rebounds, had missed five games with a strained groin. He returned Sunday and had 21 points and 10 rebounds as Toronto beat Houston 93-80. Bargnani is averaging 11.9 points and 4.5 rebounds while shooting 45.2 percent (28-for-62) from 3-point range.
With so much energy from his returning players i see the Raptors having the first chance tonight .
Toronto has taken two straight games in the series and seven of the last 10 matchups.
So , the NBA free tip for this game is :
The second selection is from Washington vs. Minnesota
Randy Wittman – the Wolves coach – returns to the sidelines after a three-game absence as the Timberwolves begin a quick East Coast road trip with a matchup against the Washington Wizards.
The Wizards also won 105-89 at Minnesota on Nov. 16, behind 29 points from Caron Butler. That contest was also the last for Wizards star Gilbert Arenas, who scored 27 in his final game before undergoing a second surgery on his left knee.
Butler helped Washington (10-10) to another win Sunday night, scoring 20 of his 28 points in the second half of a 104-89 home victory over New Jersey. Antawn Jamison added 22 points and 10 rebounds as the Wizards improved to 3-1 on their five-game homestand.
I see a really low scoring game tonight , and i really don t think that Butler will make a special game against the Wolves . The visitors will try to defend as much as they can – maybe the way they managed to keep the mighty Suns at 93 points on Saturday .
The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Minnesota’s last 8 games on the road .
So the free tip for this game is :
Good luck and enjoy it !
