    After finally having a productive night picking NBA games let’s start Saturday with the Portland-Houston game since the Trail Blazers will be in the Ford Center Sunday night.

     Portland 95, Houston 93: The Trail Blazers will either be 2-1 or 1-2 when they invade the Ford Center Sunday night, a back-to-back helping the Thunder who had Saturday off. Look for Portland to eake out a win after beating the Rockets in both teams’ season opener earlier in the week.

     Philadelphia 104, New York 100: Could be a shootout at Madison Square Garden. The Sixers, coming off a win over Milwaukee, are still trying to figure out how to get Elton Brand more involved. The Knicks are still looking for their first win.

     San Antonio 104, Sacramento 88: The Kings actually had a lead late in their game Friday night in New Orleans, but the Spurs should romp after having the incentive of losing at Chicago Thursday night.

     Dallas 96, LA Clippers 94: Coming off a dominant upset win over the Lakers Friday night in LA, the Mavericks must guard against a letdown. The Clippers are still looking for their first win.

     Washington 94, New Jersey 84: The Wizards’ home opener after splitting road games at Dallas and Atlanta. The Nets have been competitve but are 0-2.

     Cleveland 96, Charlotte 83: The Cavs got back on track in Minneapolis and return home. The Bobcats who got their first win in double-overtime over the Knicks. LeBron is close to averaging a double-double during a 1-2 start.

     Milwaukee 90, Detroit 86: The Bucks finally got their season started with a road loss. Their home opener is against a Pistons team that looked lethargic against the Thunder without Rip Hamilton, who is sidelined by an ankle injury.
