NBA Preview and Predictions 11/1
Rockets vs Heat
Houston heads to Miami for their first road game. They look to avenge back-to-back 20-point home losses. Miami is coming off of a loss to Cleveland.
Houston is having production woes so far this season. Harden is averaging 19 points a game, that is followed by Ty Lawson’s 11.5. The Rockets only had two players shoot over 40%. Harden struggled with a 4/18 performance from the field. They will need to figure out how to make this offense click to help their odds today.
Miami faced a Cleveland team that put their two stars on display, and only lost by 10. They are currently receiving a combined 41 points per game from Bosh and Wade. They are clicking relatively well and have the home court advantage.
My Prediction: Houston is having too many struggles offensively too have a shot to take down Miami at home. They will have no answer for Bosh at the four spot, and that will be the deciding factor.
Miami 103- Houston 90
Bucks vs. Raptors
The Bucks are coming off of a blown lead that sent them to 0-2. They are facing an athletic and well-rounded Toronto lineup playing at home.
Milwaukee blew a lead last game that cost them dearly. Giannis Antetokounmpo provided 27 points in his debut, which should give the Bucks and their fans a bright outlook on his season. They also have seen Greg Monroe put up 22 points per game. They need to hold on for an entire game though if they want to win.
Toronto’s squad is showing the doubters what they are all about. DeRozan is averaging 24 points per game, Lowry has 18.5, and Carroll adds 17.5. Their defense is solid and they can outrun you for an entire game. That is why they are 2-0.
My Prediction- The Bucks won’t be able to hang for an entire game with this Raptors team. They will prevail in the end with athleticism and good team balance.
Toronto 107- Milwaukee 96
