It’s the start of another new week in the NBA, with a lot of games to cover over the next 7 days. We are going to try and cram in as many previews and predictions as possible, starting with a trio of games that are set to go on NBA Tuesday Night.

The Philadelphia 76ers will be looking to maintain their great home record when they host the Minnesota Timberwolves. The game of the night will see a battle between two of the top teams in the Western Conference, with the Golden State Warriors and Denver Nuggets going head to head. The Bulls will be on the road to face a Lakers team struggling to stay afloat with LeBron James on the sidelines. Let’s take a closer look at these 3 games.

Minnesota Timberwolves at Philadelphia 76ers

As it stands at the moment, there is a very definite top 4 in the Eastern Conference, with the Philadelphia 76ers in that mix. They would be a whole lot higher than their current #4 seed if they were as good on the road as they are at home. Philly have been pretty close to unbeatable in their own building, going 18-4 in home games this season. That should stand them in good stead on Tuesday night when they welcome in the Minnesota Timberwolves, who are just 6-14 on the road this season. The 76ers won both meetings last season and have now won 3 in a row versus the T-Wolves. They should have no problem picking up the Win here.

Predicted Score: Minnesota Timberwolves 110 | Philadelphia 76ers 119

Golden State Warriors at Denver Nuggets

This is undeniably the best game on the NBA schedule on NBA Tuesday night, as it could result in a change of leader at the top of the Western Conference if the Warriors can come away with the win. The Warriors are certainly in a solid run of form, winning 4 in a row and 7 of their last 10, but the bad news is that they have lost back to back games to Denver, with both of those defeats coming on the road. Those outcomes should probably not be seen as a huge surprise when you consider that Denver are sitting at 18-3 in their own building this season. The last meeting, which came earlier this season, was a 100-98 win for Denver, and I think we are looking at another close one here.

Predicted Score: Golden State Warriors 104 | Denver Nuggets 108

Chicago Bulls at Los Angeles Lakers

A season that looked so promising for the Lakers has quickly turned problematic, mostly because their injury list is growing longer by the day, with LeBron James heading that list for potentially another month. The Lakers have lost back to back games and have just 3 wins in their last 10 games, but this meeting may be just what the doctor ordered. The Chicago Bulls are on an awful run of form right now, coming into this week on a 7-game losing skid. The Bulls have just 5 wins on the road this season and have now lost 3 straight games to the Lakers. I think LA back to winning ways, at least for one game, with a win here.

Predicted Score: Chicago Bulls 98 | Los Angeles Lakers 105
