MIA @ ATL
Following Tuesday’s 97-112 loss in Miami, the Hawks will face off with the Heat again without star point guard Trae Young due to an ankle injury. Stopping Jimmy Butler will be the main focus for Atlanta, given he dropped a smooth 21 in Tuesday’s matchup.
Heat rookie Kendrick Nunn has been by far the biggest surprise this season, scoring a total of 84 points in his first four games, the most in Heat history. Expect to see Nunn try to put on a show with the game being broadcast nationally on TNT!
Game Time: 7:00 pm EST on TNT
DEN @ NO
The Denver Nuggets will travel to New Orleans to face off with the young Pelicans. The Pelicans are still winless by starting out the season 0-4, while the Nuggets are 3-1.
After a dominant defensive start to the season giving up only 100.3 points in their first 3 games, the Nuggets fell to the Dallas Mavericks 109-106 on Tuesday’s matchup at home. They’re hoping to bounce back strong against the struggling Pelicans in New Orleans.
Game Time: 9:30 EST on TNT
SA @ LAC
Arguably the game of the night, Kawhi Leonard and the Clippers will go against the undefeated San Antonio Spurs in LA.
Following sitting out Wednesday nights loss against the Jazz, Kawhi is looking to take down his former team. Although many would say the Clippers are still the favorites out of the West, their record may say otherwise(3-2). Yes, it’s very early and way too hard to tell but as of right now, their main focus will be to take down DeMar Derozan and the Spurs.
Game Time: 10:30 EST
