NBA West Saturday Preview – January 26, 2013

By Jonathan K.

If the cold weather is keeping you in doors this weekend do not be too bummed out about it.  There is a lot of big NBA action on Saturday that you can find on TV to keep you entertained.

Houston Rockets versus Brooklyn Mets

After getting off to an impressive start the Houston Rockets have began to fizzle.  They are 2-8 on their last ten games.  They recently won a game and will look to get back in contention as being considered a real threat in the west in a game against the Brooklyn Mets.  The Mets are no pushovers, though.  They are 8-2 on their last ten games and boast a 26-17 record over all. The betting lines for this game have yet to be released.

Golden State Warriors versus Milwaukee Bucks

The Golden State Warriors will be coming into this game with morale low.  They will play the Bucks just a day after the Chicago Bulls imposed their will upon them.  The Warriors had their win streak snapped in their loss to the Bulls.  The Bucks also have pulled out their share of upset victories recently.  Earlier this month they defeated the Chicago Bulls.  The betting lines have yet to released for this game.

LA Clippers versus Portland Trail Blazers

The LA Clippers are considered one of the best teams in the NBA and with good reason.  The team is fluid and plays like a unit.  Anytime the Clippers step out on to the court your going to see some good basketball.  They will be taking on the Portland Trail Blazers.  The Blazers are a struggling team trying to stay afloat over a .500 win percentage.  A win against the Clippers for the Blazers would do wonders for Portland’s morale.  The Blazers are actually favored on BetOnline.Com with a -1.5 point spread.
