Matchday #3 with three Rounds. We may already have the first semifinalist of the Eastern Conference.
Donovan Mitchell (Utah Jazz, 14.7 cr): the Mavs, without Doncic, won Game-2 thanks to Brunson’s huge performance. Tonight the Jazz will play at home and we expect Donovan won’t disappoint his audience.
Cameron Payne (Phoenix Suns, 8.3 cr): with Booker forced to stop for at least two games, Cam enters in the starting five. His broad view of the game will be a valuable help for his teammates, in particular for CP3, able to penetrate the not so solid Pelicans’ defence, as we have already seen in Game-1.
Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee Bucks, 22.3 cr): Middleton’s injury was like a bolt from the blue. An Bobby Portis is in doubt too. So, the responsibility upon Giannis’ shoulders is even bigger than before. But we perfectly know what the Greek is capable of.
Brandon Clarke (Memphis Grizzlies, 9.6 cr): maybe the surprise of the Memphis vs Minnesota series. Adams’ poor performances in the first two Games have urged coach Jenkins to prefer the Canadian, who is paying back the trust shown.
Jonas Valanciunas ( New Orleans Pelicans, 14.2 cr): one of the most constant centers of the Regular Season. And he is no less in the Playoff. A thorn in the side of the Suns, who are having trouble in containing him.
Al Horford (Boston Celtics, 11.2 cr): the Dominican has managed to not regret Williams’ absence. One of the best Celtics players in the first two games of the series against the Nets, we are confident that he is ready to make his presence felt in Brooklyn too.
Steve Nash (Brooklyn Nets, 9.5 cr): after the first two games in Boston, the score says 2-0 for the Celtics. Game-3 will be played in Brooklyn; the home support and the desire of turning the tables move us to bet on coach Nash.
