There are two ESPN games on tonight but that first game is the Indiana Pacers @ Washington Wizards. I would avoid the Pacers at this point. The second game is the LA Clippers @ Golden State Warriors and that will be very entertaining.
If you have NBA League Pass you should check out the Miami Heat @ Charlotte Hornets that comes on at 7 pm or even the Atlanta Hawks @ San Antonio Spurs that starts at 8:30.
Charlotte has not looked great at 1-3 but it is a division game against the Heat. Both teams are coming off losses from last night and are looking to rebound with a win. New acquisition Lance Stephenson has not shot the basketball well but leads the team in rebounds and assists.
The Heat suffered their first loss of the season last night. They had some mental mistakes and got blown out at home in the fourth quarter.
The Hornets are better on defense and make the games ugly. They are still learning to play with each other on the offensive end. The Heat looked good against the Rockets in that first half last night, moving the ball at a quick pace and finding the open man. I think the Heat get the win on the road.
The Clippers and Warriors game will be a high scoring game. The Clippers are the least impressive 3-1 team. They beat OKC, Lakers and the Jazz. That haven’t won by more than seven points against some inferior teams. Their schedule is about to get tough with games coming against the Warriors, Blazers, Spurs, Suns and Bulls. They need a quality game tonight.
The Warriors are 3-0 and have the leading scorer in Klay Thompson. They beat the Lakers and Kings in blow out fashion and have a good win on the road against the Blazers. They also have a tough schedule coming up against the Clippers, Rockets, Suns and Spurs.
The Warriors are fourth in scoring and second in points allowed. The Clippers will have their hands full trying to stop Steph Curry and Klay Thompson. Blake Griffin has been great this season averaging 27 points on 50% shooting.
The Warriors will be tough to beat at home, I expect Curry and Thompson to light it up from the outside and get the win at home.
