NBA Predictions, Preview, Schedule: Oct. 29, 2021

Magic vs Raptors

Time: 7 pm Est

Predicted Winner: Raptors

Tonight, for the first time in their NBA careers, we see best friends Scottie Barnes and Jalen Suggs face-off vs each other’s respective team. Both teams have started off the season slowly, with the Orlando Magic’s only win coming from the debunk that the Knicks had during their contest.

Hornets’ vs Heat

Time: 7:30pm Est

Predicted Winner: Heat

This match is the first of a doubleheader tonight on ESPN, both teams have started the season incredibly well. Both teams have one loss, while the Hornets have 4 wins to the Heat’s 3. The Hornets have managed to shock the league, becoming one of the teams to watch early. Especially after defeating the nets, and Miles Bridges finally coming into his own in this early season.

Pacers vs Nets

Time: 7:30pm Est

Predicted Winner: Nets

The Nets look to try and find some ground in this season as they are currently 2-3. Obviously, when you watch their games, they are missing someone or maybe something. Maybe more depth? Adapting to the new fouling rules? Or can it be Kyrie Irving? Who knows but they should figure it out soon, I know it’s early in the season but the east has a lot of contenders that early in the season. They have to find some grounding soon before others get hot.

Kings’ vs Pelicans

Time: 8 pm Est

Predicted Winner: Kings

Pelicans are also looking for some grounding this season as they start a back-to-back. Tonight, they face the 2-2 Kings. And tomorrow they face the 4-1 Knicks. The biggest talking point for this preview is Brandon Ingram and how well he has been performing so far this season.  Hes currently averaging 25 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 Ast. Now without Zion due to injury, and Lonzo ball gone. It’s his team let’s see what he can do with what he has.

Clippers vs Trailblazers

Time: 10pm Est

Predicted Winner: Clippers

The clippers continue to play this season with kawhi, things have not worked out so far this season as they start 1-3. Vs the 2-2 Blazers. Both teams have potential that they need to tap into this season. This should be a fun matchup.

Mavs vs Nuggets

Time: 10pm Est

Predicted Winner: Nuggets

The second game in our doubleheader on ESPN, this is going to be the Nugget’s first game without Jokic this season. Now, with Jamal and Jokic how will the Nuggets fare. Last game after Jokic got hurt, the Nuggets played well going into the fourth. Until the Jazz just took over without him in the game. The Mavs look just like how they are supposed to, their only loss so far comes after game one vs the Haws. Since then, they have been dominant.

Cavs vs Lakers

Time: 10:30pm

Predicted Winner: Lakers

The Lakers look lost, I wanted to predict the Cavs to win this game, but I would expect the Lakers with Anthony Davis and Westbrook to dominate this young core. But who knows, they started the first quarter vs the Thunder 41-19 and still managed to lose to them. It was a horrible showing, it happens. But at this rate, they have to get it together and figure out a way to balance this team.
