NBA Game Rankings: 12/19/10

I have no idea how the Miami Heat won that game last night in the nation’s capital, but hey, it goes down as a win. Of course, not many people expected the Wizards to even be in the game since they traded away Gilbert Arenas earlier in the day. But it was a gritty performance by Flip Saunders‘ squad, and adding a scorer like Rashard Lewis should help them. Make it 12 straight for the Heat now, and they are reaching their stride at the right time since they head into Los Angeles on Christmas Day to take on the Lakers. That one could be interesting.

Here’s a look at today’s schedule:

#6: Houston Rockets (11-15) at Sacramento Kings (5-19) – 6:00 PM ET, Regional

#5: Atlanta Hawks (17-11) at New Jersey Nets (7-20) – 1:00 PM ET, Regional

#4: New Orleans Hornets (16-10) at Detroit Pistons (8-19) – 6:00 PM ET, Regional

#3: Los Angeles Lakers (20-7) at Toronto Raptors (10-17) – 1:00 PM ET, Regional

#2: Indiana Pacers (12-13) at Boston Celtics (21-4) – 1:00 PM ET, Regional

#1: Phoenix Suns (12-13) at Oklahoma City Thunder (19-8) – 7:00 PM ET, NBA TV

Which team has the best chance to get the road win? Pacers or Suns?
