NBA Preview and Notes for December 15

There are nine games tonight in the NBA and the marquee game is between the Nuggets and Mavs in Dallas.

The Mavs have played very well of late and we could be in for a shootout tonight as both teams can score with the best of them. 

The World champs will be entertaining the Utah Jazz tonight in Boston. The Celtics have been on a huge roll and I don't see the Jazz being able to stop the Celtics' momentum.

The best night game to watch on the West Coast will be the Magic vs. the Warriors in Oakland. Dwight Howard will be out due to an injury for the Magic. 

This puts the onus on the Magic shooters to  hit their outside shots tonight. Expect this to be a very high-scoring game. 

In Phoenix, the Suns face their former coach, Mike D'Antoni, for the first team when the Knicks come to town. It will be a very emotional night for D'Antoni, and some of the Suns.

Black coaches are getting fired these days so if I was Reggie Theus, I would not feel comfortable. The Kings are playing poorly and one more bad loss and he might be fired too. The Kings play the Timberwolves tonight.
