It has been a tough year for the defending champs. They have dealt with injuries to their top stars and, as a result, are currently in sixth place but are in jeopardy of dropping down, which would put them in the play-in tournament. The team is getting healthy at the right time, so hopefully, this will help down the stretch and throughout the long haul of the playoffs.
They need to hold off Minnesota because they are right behind in seventh, and a win would get the T-Wolves within striking distance. Minnesota has been an average defense all season, and Curry has gone over 41 Points/Rebounds/Assists against them this year.
Boston is in a tight race for the top seed as the regular season wraps up. The team is playing really well by winning six of their last eight, but Milwaukee has been nearly unbeatable to the point where the Celtics cannot gain ground.
Luckily they’ll face the Spurs, who are already eliminated from the playoffs and have one of the league’s worse records. The big reason is they are last in defensive efficiency. That will benefit Jaylen Brown, as the Spurs allow the fifth-most points to shooting guards this year.
The Cavaliers should finish at a worse fourth in the east, but by winning eight of their last ten, they could make a push to move higher. Do not be shocked if they make a run in the playoffs because they are first in defensive efficiency and sixth in offensive efficiency and can win a game with either.
The acquisition of Donovan Mitchell has been tremendous for them, as he averages 27.5 points per game. Tonight he goes against Houston, who could finish with the worse record in the league and is allowing the sixth-most points to shooting guards over the last seven games.
