CANADIAN DIE-HARDS TOP 3 GAMES

 

Monday, March 10th

Magic v. Bucks

As teams enter into the final quarter of the regular season, it is becoming a little clearer who will be on the outside looking in when the playoffs roll around. Unfortunately for the Magic, they seem to be in that boat with their upcoming opponent in the Milwaukee Bucks. They also made their intentions clear when they bought out Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis. This might be good news for Andrew Nicholson, as he should see a minutes increase because of the move. Nicholson’s length will be a contributing factor to stopping the size of John Henson and Larry Sanders, the other young bigs on the Bucks.


Tuesday, March 11th

Mavs v. Warriors

This should be an interesting match-up between two teams fighting over playoff position in the West. The Warriors are a run and gun team that the Mavs will most likely have to match-up with. Samuel Dalembert will need to stay light on his feet and provide the same kind of rim protection that he usually does to match-up against Andrew Bogut.


Wednesday, March 12th

Knicks v. Celtics

The Celtics are coming off a big win Sunday night versus the Pistons. Kelly Olynyk had a hand in the win, chipping in 18 points and 6 rebounds. They face the Pacers on Tuesday, in a game where they match-up well however seem too young to compete with the title contenders. Their following game against the Knicks is one where the Celts should win. Kelly Olynyk should be able to penetrate and get some points against a faltering Knicks defense.
