Lakers vs Suns
The Lakers will be without Andrew Bynum for this big showdown against the Suns. Lamar Odom and company must pick up the slack and step it up in place of their fallen teammate who is out with a knee injury. The Suns are now in second place and have been looking forward to this game for a few days now. Their loss to the Clippers on Tuesday night was because they were looking ahead to Thursday night.
Suns 104 Lakers 98
Jazz vs Nuggets
The Jazz will be motivated to win and Denver is without Kenyon Martin and Nene Hilario. They still have Iverson and Anthony though but the Jazz have too much firepower for the Nuggets.
Jazz 109 Nuggets 98
Cavs vs Spurs
The Spurs defeated the Cavs for the NBA championship last season. The Spurs lost big to the Pistons last Thursday night and will play better tonight in front of another national TV audience.
Spurs 96 Cavs 90
