2nd Opening----- Night number 2 of the NBA season has a full slate of games, no real blockbusters, but here are a few things I will be watching and all fans should be watching tonight.
1. What kind of game will the Lakers put up in Phoenix, after a hard loss to Houston on opening night and another big loss, with the leg injury to top draft choice rookie Julius Randle, which will put him out of action at least several weeks.
2. Derrick Rose is back with the Bulls and just how good will he be this year. One game does not make a season, but a great showing by Rose tonight could be a wonderful confidence boost for him and his Bulls' teammates.
3. The deadline of Friday is looming for the Golden State Warriors to give Klay Thompson a max NBA contract. Just how big of numbers will he put up tonight.
It is always fun to predict scores in any sport and since I do not bet, for sure these scores each day will be for entertainment purposes only.
Tonight's games of which I picked 3 contests.
Chicago 93 @ New York Knicks 79
Golden State 134 @Sacramento 121
OKC 94 @Portland 101
