NBA PREDICTIONS PT 3

NEW ORLEANS PELICANS VS  LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS

The New Orleans pelicans last season was heading toward tanking in order to recover from Anthony Davis  departure from  . They also lost Demarcus Cousins the season before that . This year they gained the rookie with the most hype since Lebron James , Zion Williamson . Talk about jumping on the moon . This kid is 18 years old and looks like he gliding when he jumps . With the addition of Brandon Ingram , josh hart , derrick favors , lonzo ball , & the veteran leadership of Jrue Holiday this team is reaching new heights definitely . Did i mention Zion Williamson is is 6’7 285 ? he’s the second heaviest player in the league . but to be 18 and have all that weight on you is it healthy ? . or bad ? This man has a God given talent . Unfortunately he is injured , nothing to serious though . Let’s just hope for the best .  On the other hand .  The Clippers  has had a nice squad throughout the years . Over the summer they added Paul George  & Kawhi leonard to the mix . They also have Patrick Beverly , Montrez Harrell , and lou williams . Good Luck trying to get a basket , they all can pretty much guard 1-5 any switch on any team . They are definitely contenders . With the coaching of Doc rivers who took the 2008 celtics to the championship this team is definetly head to new heights . I got clipps  105-82

ATLANTA HAWKS VS TORONTO RAPTORS

 

The atlanta hawks are a young team on the verge of a playoff contender in a few years , Trae young is the next steph curry as the critics say . he can shoot from anywhere . Cam reddish is fresh out of duke looking like a young Carmelo Anthony . Jabari Parker is averaging 20 after his injury . John collins is 6’10 stretch 4 that can score the 3 ball , is a tenacious rebounded and can spread the floor . They have a  sold center in Alex len that is 7’1 who is also a stretch 5 thats great . also deandre hunter who is a 6’7 wing defender . All this team needs is a veteran who can lead this team into the playoffs , or more chemistry . The toronto raptors are the Nba defending champion and is looking to repeat . Although Kawhi leonard departure to the clippers , the raptors look to give Pascal Siakam the keys to the city . The franchise . Kyle lowry stepped up last years , so he will get more touches . Fred Vanvleet will be fighting for that starting point guard , in the finals he went crazy , in a good way of course . Good thing they still have the shot blocking in serge ibaka . I got Raptors 98-95

The memphis grizzlies have a fire power in there point guard of the future , Ja morant this is another rookie that is special , he has a combination of d rose , westbrook , wall , and just flat out have a swagger to himself . im pretty sure i told you that in the last article . Memphis is one of the teams i will be watching this year. The indiana pacers are tyring to find there way bacm after the one of the mvp runners in victor oladipo got injured last season . they do have shooters and other players that play the roll . But this memphis team is energetic .
