NBA---- Always important to look at early "statement" games in the NBA. Tonight will be one of those games, as the Spurs travel to Phoenix. Phoenix has been for many years, out of the NBA limelight, but a resurgence is taking place in the Valley of the Sun ever since Jeff Hornacek took over as the Suns' head coach last season.
While this game tonight is not going to make or break any season, it will be well worth taking note of the final score.
Scores----I started the year out 3-0 in my NBA score predictions, so let's keep it going tonight with 3 late games.
Spurs 82 @ Suns 95
Blazers 112 @ Kings 102
Clippers 135 @ Lakers 109
Nov. 1st---- If you are in the Portland, Oregon metro area, there will be some great small college basketball on Saturday.
For the 21st straight year, Clackamas Community College will host their annual jamboree. This year 10 outstanding teams will visit Randall Hall. The games will begin on two different courts at 9:30 a.m. and the day will end around 4:30 p.m. This is a basketball lover's dream day.
It keeps going with fine basketball, at 7:00 p.m. across town Concordia University will host University of British Columbia. in what should be a great game, between two really good teams.
