BettingPremier’s take on this week’s games follows:
Milwaukee Bucks vs Brooklyn Nets
The Milwaukee Bucks play host to the Brooklyn Nets at the Fiserv Forum in the opening fixture of the 2021-22 NBA regular season. The Bucks were the champions last season owing to Giannis Antetokounmpo’s terrific performance in the Finals against the Phoenix Suns. ‘The Greek Freak’ was the MVP having scored a whopping 50 points and had 14 rebounds. Mike Budenholzer is one of the league’s best coaches. However, they come off four losses in five games this preseason. The Nets arguably have the best roster of all franchises. They are stacked with James Harden, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. They finished second in the Eastern Conference with 48 wins but fell to the Bucks in the Conference Semifinals of the playoffs. The Nets’ preseason campaign was up to par, having won three of the four matchups. it is a game of equal powers but the Bucks have the home advantage.
Los Angeles Lakers vs Golden State Warriors
The Los Angeles Lakers invite the Golden State Warriors to the Staples Centre for another fixture of the NBA regular-season opening night. The Lakers finished seventh in the Western Conference last season with 42 wins. They failed to make it past the first round of the playoffs having been defeated by the season runners-up the Phoenix Suns. The Lakers have big names in their roster like LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Russel Westbrook. They also acquired Carmelo Anthony who is 10x All-Star and 1x scoring champion. Anthony Davis has not been his usual self following an injury last year. The Warriors finished ninth in the Western Conference last season with 39 wins. Klay Thompson will likely return for the Warriors in January after back-to-back injuries. The two-times MVP Stephen Curry is the Warriors’ biggest flex. He is widely regarded as the greatest shooter of all time and the league’s best point guard. The Lakers will start on a winning note.
New Orleans Pelicans vs Philadelphia 76ers
The Philadelphia 76ers hit the road to meet the New Orleans Pelicans at the Smoothie King Centre to start their NBA campaign. The 76ers finished atop the Eastern Conference table last season with 49 wins. They fell to the Atlanta Hawks in the Conference Semifinals of the playoffs. The Sixers have not resolved the Simmons trade saga yet. The player wants out but Philadelphia are not following through on his trade request. The Sixers played four games this preseason, won two and lost two. The Pelicans finished 11th in the Western Conference last season with 31 wins. All-Star forward Zion Williamson is recovering from a foot fracture, he could be back in two to two and a half weeks. The Pelicans played four games in the preseason, managed to win only once. The departure of Lonzo Ball is a blow for New Orleans on the defensive end. The Sixers will begin with a win on the road.
Utah Jazz vs Oklahoma City Thunder
The Utah Jazz take on the Oklahoma City Thunder at the former’s home Vivint Arena for their opening game of the NBA season. The Jazz had a great 2020-21 season, finishing as top seeds in the Western Conference with 52 wins. They made it until the Conference Semifinals where they fell to the Los Angeles Clippers. Their success this season is to be determined by what they do in the playoffs. Utah have a stable roster developed over the years that starts with the All-Star guard Donovan Mitchell. The Thunder finished only 14th in the Western Conference last season. They are in the process of rebuilding their roster with Gilgeous-Alexander and Dort as the only established young stars. Oklahoma will be looking to establish a new culture and develop young players. Beating the Jazz at home will be a strenuous task for the Thunder. Utah will likely humble the visitors.
Phoenix Suns vs Denver Nuggets
The Phoenix Suns host the Denver Nuggets at the Footprint Centre for their opening game of the NBA season. The Suns were excellent last season, having made it to the NBA Finals where they fell to the Milwaukee Bucks. They finished second in the Western Conference behind Utah with 51 wins. Star duo Chris Paul and Devin Booker will lead the way for the Suns once again. They have a perfectly balanced roster of veterans and youth that needed no tinkering in the offseason. Coach Monty Williams has a great connection with the crew. The Nuggets finished third behind the Suns in the Western Conference with 47 wins. They made it until the Conference Semifinals in the playoffs but lost to the Suns themselves. The reigning MVP Nikola Jokic will look to build on his performance last season. Jamal Murray, Denver’s second-best player will remain out for an extended period as the guard is still recovering from a torn ACL. The Suns are the favourites to win this matchup.
