Philadelphia vs. Detroit
The Detroit Pistons are on their way to shattering the record of futility set by the Charlotte Bobcats last year. The Pistons have started the season with 8 consecutive losses and show no signs of life. Although the Sixers are without the services of Andrew Bynum for the foreseeable future they shouldn't need him to polish off Detroit at home. If I was Pistons head coach Lawrence Frank I'd be looking for a good realtor right about now.
Miami vs. LA Clippers
The defending champs head to the west coast to face LA's other team, Lob City. Both teams currently sit atop their respected division, but the Clippers have struggled at home posting a modest 3-2 record. The Heat should have no problem with Chris Paul and Blake Griffin unless they partied too hard last night. It is LA and they are the champs after all. Never forget the small nuances of professional sports.
Tampa Bay vs. Carolina
The Bucs find themselves back in the playoff hunt thanks to my fantasy football hero Doug Martin. Martin has rattled off some tremendous games as of late and Tampa Bay has won 3 in a row.They need Martin continue running the ball well so I can dominate in my trash talking league.
