Are there any NBA games today, Tuesday 8 March 2022?
There are six matchups in store in the NBA on Tuesday evening, as the Golden State Warriors look to break their five-game losing run.
There are six games today in the NBA, starting with a trio of matchups that tip off at 7pm ET.
Suns @ Magic
The Orlando Magic, who sit bottom of the Eastern Conference and lost to the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday, host Western Conference leaders the Phoenix Suns in an out-of-conference clash. Although the Suns are top dogs in the West, they also go into the game on the back of defeat, after losing to the Bucks on Sunday.
Nets @ Hornets
Also at 7pm, eighth hosts ninth in the Eastern Conference, as the Charlotte Hornets welcome the Brooklyn Nets to Spectrum Center, fresh from beating the San Antonio Spurs at the weekend. The Nets went down to a Jayson Tatum-inspired Boston Celtics on Sunday - and have now lost their last four games.
Cavaliers @ Pacers
In Tuesday’s third 7pm tip-off, the Cleveland Cavaliers go to the Indiana Pacers in the teams’ fourth and final matchup of the regular season. The Cavs have won all three against the Pacers so far this campaign, and sit sixth in the East after beating the Toronto Raptors on Sunday. Meanwhile, Indiana lost to the Washington Wizards and are down in 13th.
Pelicans @ Grizzlies
After defeat to the Houston Rockets on Sunday, Ja Morant’s Memphis Grizzlies, who are second in the Western Conference, take on the in-form New Orleans Pelicans at 7:30pm. The Pelicans have won four of their last five, and sit 10th in the West.
Bucks @ Thunder
At 8pm, reigning NBA champions the Milwaukee Bucks visit the Oklahoma City Thunder in a cross-conference matchup. Following victory over the Suns, Giannis Antetokounmpo and co. are third in the East. The Thunder are down in 14th in the West, and lost to the Utah Jazz last time out.
Clippers @ Warriors
Finally, the LA Clippers take on the Golden State Warriors at Chase Center at 10pm. Steve Kerr’s Warriors are five spots above the eighth-placed Clippers in the West - but they’re currently in the midst of a five-game losing streak, most recently succumbing to the Denver Nuggets on Monday.
