One of the most anticipated day of the NBA Season has arrived: today is Christmas Day! It begins at 5:00 PM (GMT) with Philadelphia 76ers @ New York Knicks, to continue with Los Angeles Lakers @ Dallas Mavericks (7:30 PM GMT) and Milwaukee Bucks @ Boston Celtics (10:00 PM GMT).
Before moving on to our picks for this three Rounds Matchday, the Team Dunkest want to wish you all a very merry Christmas.
Ja Morant (Memphis Grizzlies, 18.1 cr): he has a bone to pick with the Golden State Warriors and he wants to make it up for the elimination in the Semifinal of the Western Conference, last Season. He has already given the charge to his teammates, so we expect a huge performance from him.
Josh Giddey (Oklahoma City Thunder, 14.1 cr): as a faithful squire, he is always ready to catch rebounds and serve assists, mainly for Shai. He has been missing the appointment with the triple double since the first days of November and the match against San Antonio could be favourable to him.
Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee Bucks, 21.8 cr): despite remarkable performances, the big boy from Greece and his team have recorded two losses in a row. In order to avoid the third, especially in Christmas Day, he will be focused on the match and on his play, in a match in which the Bucks will face the Celtics caught in a sudden drop of performance, compared with the beginning of the Season.
Pascal Siakam (Toronto Raptors, 17.8 cr): boom and bust in this Season for the Cameroonian, far from being the solid player of the last one. We rely on the statistics, which tell us that he has a predominance in the paint against the Clippers.
Nikola Vucevic (Chicago Bulls, 16.8 cr): the Houston Rockets have the worst field-goal percentage in this Season, numbers that would suggest to pick the Montenegrin center in our FantaTeam. It does not need further motivation,
Chaunchey Billups (Portland Trail Blazers, 7.4 cr): Toronto will face one of the team with the worst W-L record in the Western Conference. Let’s give a chance to Chaunchey!
