The Milwaukee Bucks start the day with an Eastern Conference fight against the Indiana Pacers. The Bucks are quietly one of the most impressive teams in the league, although the Boston Celtics steal a lot of the headlines, while the Pacers like to pace and score against almost any opponent.
The Memphis Grizzlies will later take on the Minnesota Timberwolves in a showdown between two young high flyers in Ja Morant and Anthony Edwards. Morant’s Grizzlies are in a more favorable overall position as second in the Western Conference, while the T-Wolves are beginning to regret the blockbuster offseason trade they made for defensive center Rudy Gobert.
The Cleveland Cavaliers also face the Oklahoma City Thunder in a game that could be more competitive than many are anticipating. OKC is secretly the best team in the NBA when it comes to covering point spreads, while the Cavs are proficient on both offense and defense. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Donovan Mitchell and Darius Garland are also three of basketball’s best young guards right now and will be providing their share of the excitement.
Finally, the Toronto Raptors end the day with a matchup against the Golden State Warriors. The teams don’t look terribly different from their NBA Finals showdown a few years ago, but both teams are in very different circumstances and below their usual standards. Golden State won its only previous matchup this season by 16 points away.
