# DO NOT MISS
The Cavaliers will host the Warriors tonight in a poster that will bring back fond memories to all who watched the NBA in the second half of the 2010s. Sports-wise, this could be one of the first interesting Cleveland-Golden States since LeBron James left Ohio in 2018.
The Dubs aren’t having the easiest season in the world, but they’re still champions. The historic Curry-Thompson-Green trio, which has played havoc with crowds at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse (which will remain Q Arena in our hearts), is still there to lead Steve Kerr’s troupe. On the Cavs side, no longer the Kings, but a very promising and already competitive lineup led by Donovan Mitchell… the king this season. Friend Spida, let’s talk about it. Not listed against the Grizzlies “suspicious” for tonight. Knowing that Darius Garland, Evan Mobley or Caris LeVert can step up in scoring, at least on a regular basis, shouldn’t be an issue.
Anyway, that’s what happened in Memphis, and it was enough to force the Teddy Bears to rely on Steven Adams’ tip and Dillon Brooks’ clutch counter to win. How will the Celtics fare against the back-to-back Warriors, who are coming off of an overtime loss and are experimenting with a new five-point, very-very-small-ball? Answer this evening.
SEE ALSO #
- Still no Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram. Naci Marshall, Herb Jones, and Franz Wagner are obscure. Unfortunately, we’d like to see two of the NBA’s most promising young cores in full force this Magic – Pelicans time. By the way, are Paolo Banchero and CJ McCollum available on TTFL decks?
- The Hawks host the Knicks in a matchup that has everything it needs, both in terms of sportsmanship and buzz, to smell good blood. Bogdan Bogdanovic, especially Trae Young, still needs to be able to be elusive.
- Another remake of the old Finals, this duel between the Mavs and the Heat. And you want to know what is the craziest? Udonis Haslem, who played two games between the Texans and Florida in 2006 and 2011, is still on Miami’s side! There are more than Christian Wood (absent) and Tim Hardaway Jr. (uncertain) who could give Luka Doncic plenty of work anyway.
- How long will the Clippers’ slump last? A trip to San Antonio should theoretically give the Sailboats some respite, but with Paul George and Kawhi Leonard still uncertain, we can’t swear to anything. By the way, will “The Klaw” get the right to make his tribute video from the Spurs?
- Life isn’t easy without Tyrese Haliburton. We have bad news for the Pacers, this is not a transition that will make their task any easier in the country of the two-time MVP.
- Who said the Jazz are marking time after a hot start to the season? Not Lauri Markkanen anyway. Finn continues his great offensive performances and the Mormons are sixth in the West in scoring. At the Nets, we are doing our best and playing basketball with the help of our knowledge while we wait for KD to return.
- Speaking of missing stars, Anthony Davis is still inactive and LeBron James is questionable against the Grizzlies. Oh, how wonderful these five Dennis Schröder – PatBev – Juan Toscano – Wenyen Gabriel – Thomas Bryant. Oh, how ugly the score can be.
- Know that based on the various results of the night, tomorrow morning there is a world where the Kings and Lightning are in the top 6 in the West.
Admittedly, a Monday doesn’t make for a good family, but let’s face it, on Fridays like this, we immediately sign up to have more. After all, isn’t the NBA awesome?
