NBA Tip Off Games, an Exciting Night for Basketball

Posted on 14. Oct, 2013 by in NBA

On October 29th, basketball fans will eagerly await the swish of the ball as it soars through the net. Beginning its 68th season, the NBA Tip Off starts with a triple-header – the Miami Heat will play against the Chicago Bulls; the Los Angeles Clippers will take on the Los Angeles Lakers; and finally, the Orlando Magic will go head-to-head with the Indiana Pacers. It should prove to be an exciting night for basketball.

The Miami Heat will be chasing their third straight title this year and with star players like Chris Bosh, Lebron James, and Dwayne Wade, this elusive goal might just be in their grasp. If they succeed, they will be the sixth team to do that in NBA history. They are facing off against the Chicago Bulls, who bring Derrick Rose to the table. Derrick, a former NBA Most Valuable Player, was injured last season, but has since recovered.

In the other NBA Tip Off match-ups, the LA Clippers will use stars Chris Paul and Blake Griffin to challenge the LA Lakers. The Clippers added Coach Doc Rivers to their roster, hoping to beat their 56 win season last year.  The LA Lakers will start off the season without their star player, Kobe Bryant, who is recuperating from an injury. Paul Gasol and Steve Nash will be the Lakers assets at this game.  Orlando Magic is bouncing back from the worst record for last season in the NBA, but they have youth on their side. They are taking on the Indiana Pacers, who have a shot of going all the way to challenge Miami Heat for their championship rings.
