Who's playing in the NBA today Tuesday 22 March?

The NBA action continues on Tuesday as we head ever closer to the end of the regular season with plenty still to be decided in both East and West Conferences.

As the 2021-22 NBA regular season winds down with most teams set to play their final ten/eleven games of the 82 game season which is set to conclude in early April, there are still play-off and play-in places up for grabs in both Conferences with just four games scheduled for Tuesday night.

Tuesday, 22 March: NBA schedule

Warriors @ Magic: 7:00 pm (ET)

Barring a late implosion, Steve Kerr's Golden State Warriors will secure a post season berth despite the absence of talisman Steph Curry.

Commenting after the weekend defeat to San Antonio, Kerr stated that his team needs to appreciate a decreased margin for error with Curry unavailable.

Curry is in a race to return to the court before the playoffs begin in April, and the Warriors felt his absence, getting out-shot from long range by the 28-44 Spurs, currently 11th in the Western Conference.

Curry picked up the injury in the game against Boston last week and was forced to retire early in the second quarter with pain in his foot after Celtics player Marcus Smart rolled on his leg while they were wrestling for the ball.

Bulls @ Bucks: 8:00 pm (ET)

A mouthwatering match-up awaits tonight at the Fiserv Forum as two NBA titans go head-to-head as fifth in the East, Chicago (42-29) face second placed Milwaukee Bucks (440-27) with the spotlight set to shine on high scoring DeMar DeRozan and Bucks' Greek star Giannis Antetokounmpo.

The 32-year-old DeRozan has posted an impressive season average of 27.7 points per game but is outshone by Giannis who is on 29.8. Pat Connaughton is expected to be back on the court once again for Milwaukee after making a return from finger surgery.
