Milwaukee vs. Los Angeles Lakers
This may be hard for some of you to believe, but the Milwaukee Bucks have a better record than the Los Angeles Lakers. The Bucks are currently 19-17 in 8th place in the Eastern conference ahead of Philadelphia by 4 games. The Lakers are currently 16-21 and trial the Portland trailblazers by 4 games for the final playoff spot in the Western conference. The Lakers better get healthy soon or they'll be watching the post season on a nice plasma screen at a local sports bar. Look for the Lakers to handle the talented back court of the Bucks and cruise to victory.
Denver vs. Portland
The Denver Nuggets aren't flashy, but they've won 8 of their last 10 games coming into tonight's matchup against Portland. The Trailblazers are clinging to the final playoff spot and need to win as many games before the all star break as humanly possible. Damian Lillard is the odds on favorite to win the rookie of the year and without his stellar play Portland would be in big trouble. Although he's a talented player Denver is on a 5 game winning streak and should continue their winning ways tonight.
