The NBA season is just about at the halfway point of the season, with several teams fighting for the top of their respective conferences.
Warriors Look To Get Back into the Win Column vs. Bucks
The Golden State Warriors are looking to regain their winning momentum in a Thursday night matchup vs. the Milwaukee Bucks. They’re one game behind the Suns in the Pacific Division.
The Warriors recently got Klay Thompson back after spending the last couple of years battling injuries. Thompson looks healthy but still needs some time to get his game back to the elite level he was playing at during the NBA finals in 2019.
Milwaukee is on a two-game losing streak, with both losses coming against the Charlotte Hornets. They need a win to move closer to the Chicago Bulls, who are leading Central Division standings over the Bucks by three games.
This will be a close matchup, with Milwaukee winning against the shorthanded Warriors.
Timberwolves Hope to End Grizzlies’ Streak
The Timberwolves have a tough task ahead of them this Thursday night when they face the hottest team in the league, the Memphis Grizzlies. They have won ten straight and are six games ahead of the Dallas Mavericks in the Southwest Division standings. The T’Wolves have won four of their last five games but are still 7.5 games behind the Northwest Division-leading Utah Jazz.
Memphis has been taking down all challengers on their recent streak, winning the last game against the Golden State Warriors 116-108 on Tuesday night. The Timberwolves will have to find someone to contain Ja Morant, who has been shredding apart opponents this season with his dominant play.
Memphis has been on fire and will have no problem extending their win streak against the Wolves.
Nets Look To Take Back the Lead in the Eastern Conference
The Brooklyn Nets will match up against the Oklahoma City Thunder at Barclays Center Thursday night. They are 3-5 in their last eight games but were able to blow out the Chicago Bulls 138-112 on Wednesday night.
The Thunder are 2-8 in their last ten games and sit at the bottom of the Northwest Division Standings with a 13-27 season record. The only highlight to their season so far is the three-game winning streak they had towards the end of December. Unfortunately, they have not put together consecutive wins since then.
The Nets will get the win in this game to sweep the season series.
