The NBA season is finally upon us. The first 3 games of the season start today as the Orlando Magic travel to Indiana to face the pacers. The Chicago Bulls will travel to Miami to face the Heat and in the latest game of the night the LA Clippers will face the LA Lakers.

Orlando Magic @ Indiana Pacers

pacers-vs-magicThe first game is the Magic traveling to Indiana to face the Pacers. The Pacers would like to make it to the NBA Finals this year after falling to the Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals last season. While the Magic are looking to build for the future.

The Pacers are lead by rising NBA star Paul George. George lead his team in scoring last year averaging 17.4 points per game. He was 3rd on his team in rebounds averaging 7.6 per game and was 2nd on his team in assists averaging 4.1 per game. The Magic are lead by¬†Nikola Vucevic. He was 6th on his team in scoring with 13.1 points per game. He lead his team in rebound with 11.9 per game and was 2nd on his team in blocks per game with 1.03 per game. This is also the first regular season game for the #2 overall pick in June’s draft Victor Oladipo.

My Prediction

The Pacers jump out to an early 25-12 lead in the 1st quarter and never look back as they outscore the Magic 32-21 after the 1st quarter. At halftime the score is 57-44 the Pacers on top. At the end of the 3rd quarter its not even close as the Pacers are up 84-62. And in the 4th the Pacers continue their blowout of the Magic.

Final Score
Pacers: 102
Magic: 84.

The Pacers top performers are Paul George with 25 points, Roy Hibbert with 11 rebounds, and George Hill with 7 assists. The Magic’s top performers are Victor Oladipo with 20 points, Nikola Vucevic with 12 rebounds, and Jameer Nelson with 9 assists.

 

Chicago Bulls @ Miami Heat

heat vs bullsThe 2nd game that starts tonight is the Bulls traveling to Miami to face the Heat. The Bulls are looking to start the new season strong with former 2011 MVP Derrick Rose returning from his ACL injury.While the Heat are looking to get off to a hot start and 3-peat as NBA champions.

The Bulls are lead by Derrick Rose who in his last full season averaged 21.8 points, 7.9 assists and 3.4 rebounds. The Heat are lead by 4 time MVP LeBron James. James lead his team in points last year averaging 26.8 per game, in rebounds with 8 per game and assists with 7.3 per game. This game features to rival teams and 2 MVPs so it should be exciting.

My Prediction

Its a close game for the entire game as after the 1st quarter the score is 31-28 Bulls on top. But in the 2nd quarter King James gives his team the lead going into halftime as he hits a 3 pointer in the final seconds before half giving his team a 62-60 lead. In the 3rd quarter is when Derrick Rose answers back as he scores 12 points in the 3rd quarter to give his team a 82-79 lead going into the 4th. In the 4th its neck and neck as each team whenever the Heat score the Bulls score and whenever the Bulls score the Heat score. But with 2 minutes left LeBron takes over and scores 8 points to give his team the victory.

Final Score 

Heat: 98
Bulls: 95

The Heats top performers are Lebron with 32 points, Chris Bosh with 9 rebounds, and LeBron with 8 assists. The Bulls top performers are Derrick Rose with 35 points, Joakim Noah with 12 rebounds, and Derrick Rose with 6 assists.

 

LA Clippers @ LA Lakers

lakers vs clippersThe final game of the opening night of the NBA season puts in city rivals the Clippers up against the Lakers. The Clippers are looking to go deep into the playoffs this year while the Lakers want to stay above or around .500 until Kobe comes back from his Achilles injury. This is the 1st game for new Clippers coach Doc Rivers. Rivers was acquired via trade from Boston during the offseason. The Clippers sent 1st round pick in 2015 to Boston in the trade.

The Clippers are lead by point guard Chris Paul. Paul signed a 5 year extension with the Clippers in the offseason to stay in LA. Paul was 2nd on his team in scoring with 16.9 points per game. He lead his team in assists averaging 9.7 per game. He also lead his team in steals with 2.4 per game. The Lakers are lead by Pau Gasol. Gasol was 3rd on his team in scoring last year averaging 13.7 points per game. He was 2nd on his team in rebounds averaging 8.6 per game. He was also 2nd on his team in blocks per game with 1.24.

My Prediction

The Clippers jump out to an early lead by scoring 28 in the 1st and holding the Lakers to 18. In the 2nd quarter its more of the same as the Clippers extend their lead to 22 and at the half the score is Clippers 62 to the Lakers 40. In the 3rd the Lakers start making a comeback as they outscore the Clippers 32-23 in the 3rd and trimming the Clippers lead to 13. After the 3rd the score is 85-72. The Clippers would hold on in the 4th as they matched the Lakers in points with each team scoring 24.

Final Score

Clippers: 109
Lakers: 96

The Clippers top performers are Chris Paul with 24 points, Blake Griffin with 12 rebounds, and Chris Paul with 13 assists. The Lakers top performers are Nick Young with 16 points, Pau Gasol with 10 rebounds, and Steve Nash with 9 assists.
