Best: Heat @ Cavaliers: The Sporting News came out with an edition last month claiming the LeBron v. Wade is the next big rivalry. Well, it's time to find out. Carmelo's team is always done better than LeBron and shouldn't be overlooked as often as he is. But Wade and LeBron's statistics are more impressive. Predicted Score: Cleveland wins 100-98 in a close one.
Runner-up: Celtics @ Bulls: Boston has to make up a good hand of games to catch Phili for the #8 spot, and a loss here to the #9 Bulls would hurt big time. Chicago can't afford to lose either if they're to catch the 76ers. The loser is probably the #10 team in the East and will have trouble staying in the race.
Predicted Score: Chicago wins 96-92 on the backs of their home field advantage.Blowout: Wizards @ Spurs: Washington is human compared to the Spurs. With Larry Hughes gone, the Wizards have nobody who drives to the basket.
In complete contrast is the Spurs, where both Parker and Duncan are in the top 10 in Points in the Paint. The Wizards shoot too many jump shots to have a serious chance at victory. Predicted Score: San Antonio wins 96-83 in blowout fashion..Check out other David Pincus Sports Articles at http://www.easybaseballbetting.
