STAR RATING: 10.0
EXPERT: Tim Michael
EVALUATION: Loss (-1100) - Final Score DEN 105 at MIA 125
T.M. Selection: Denver Nuggets (10* TRADE-MARK).
It's going to be interesting to see how teams play over the first eight games. Take the Miami Heat for example. Miami is 42-24 and they have an 11 game lead over the Magic for the Southeast crown. The Heat's strength is their depth, but with little to play for at the start of this "re-start," I believe the team will simply "go through the motions" this evening. Denver is 43-22 and atop the Northwest, but the Nuggets play in a much more competitive division and Conference. Denver can ill afford to get out to a slow start and as such, I look for it come fully mentally prepared to play on Opening Night!
T.M. Prediction: 103-94 Nuggets
