A return bout on Christmas Day between the Los Angeles Clippers and Golden State Warriors is just one of the games Betting Sports can’t wait to see.

Three weeks into the 2014-15 NBA season and we’ve had plenty to talk about. There are those teams surprisingly overachieving, those criminally underachieving and then there are those that are just plain out of whack.  There are those players making a name for themselves for all the right reasons, and those players making a name for themselves for the wrong reasons.

But as good as these opening weeks have been Betting Sports is always keen to look ahead and get excited about what’s still to come. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of 10 NBA games we can’t wait to see.

So, without further ado, in chronological order, here are our 10 can’t miss games for the next five months.

Milwaukee Bucks at Brooklyn Nets

November 19, 2014

Tonight’s showdown between the Milwaukee Bucks and Brooklyn Nets may not be hugely significant in the grand scheme of things but it does represent Jason Kidd’s return to Barclays Center. Who’s up for seeing the Bucks’ head coach butt heads with his former boss, Mikhail Prokhorov?

Brooklyn Nets at New York Knicks

December 4, 2014

Sticking with Jay-Z’s favorite team, the Nets’ switch to Brooklyn has generated a real rivalry with the New York Knicks, the next installment of which we’re treated to in early December. The Nets defeated the Knicks in Brooklyn two weeks ago. Will the result be the same at Madison Square Garden?

Cleveland Cavaliers at Miami Heat

December 25, 2014

The schedule-makers have served up a Christmas Day cracker this year as LeBron James makes his highly-anticipated return to South Beach. The Cleveland Cavaliers opened the season as the title frontrunners while most expected the Miami Heat to struggle. So far the latter hasn’t been the case and Chris Bosh and Co. would love nothing more than sending their former stable mate home with a loss.

Golden State Warriors at Los Angeles Clippers

December 25, 2014

Another Christmas cracker as one of the league’s best new rivalries closes out a festive day of hardwood action. A year ago, the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers came to blows on Christmas Day and more of the same wouldn’t go amiss.

New Orleans Pelicans at Charlotte Hornets

January 7, 2015

The ‘Old’ Charlotte Hornets head east to take on the ‘New’ Charlotte Hornets in this one with the Charlotte Hornets World Heavyweight Championship on the line. Both the New Orleans Pelicans and Charlotte Hornets should be postseason bound this season adding a little more spice to what has typically been a languid affair. Now, how do we go about giving the Jazz back to N’Orleans?

Cleveland Cavaliers at Chicago Bulls

January 19, 2015

Headlining the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day festivities will be a showdown between two teams (injury pending) that could be competing for the Eastern Conference championship in June. The Cavs beat the Chicago Bulls in the Windy City on Halloween. Can they do it again?

Cleveland Cavaliers at Minnesota Timberwolves

January 31, 2015

More Cavs action I’m afraid but let’s be honest about this, who wants to miss Kevin Love’s return to Minneapolis? Don’t expect the Minnesota Timberwolves fans to give him the kind of standing O Paul Pierce got on his return to Boston last season.

Los Angeles Lakers at New York Knicks

February 1, 2015

The Los Angeles Lakers come head-to-head with Phil Jackson, Derek Fisher and the New York Knicks for the first time in February, just two weeks before the trade deadline. Could there be a little courting going on (and not just between Jackson and Jeanie Buss)?

Miami Heat at San Antonio Spurs

February 6, 2015

Sure LeBron’s departure means some of the luster has been lost from this NBA Finals rematch, but it’s still an NBA Finals rematch. Coming so late in the season, this one could prove to be an intriguing marker for how both Miami and the San Antonio Spurs will fare come playoff time.

San Antonio Spurs at Houston Rockets

April 10, 2015

The Spurs and Houston Rockets will lock horns before this game – including a fixture in San Antonio two days earlier – but this game earns significance over the rest by way of it being the last encounter between the two. This could very much decide which side wins the Southwest Division and maybe even the West.
