What NBA games are on today, Wednesday, 6 April?
There are six games for basketball fans to look forward on Wednesday night as the post-season playoff picture starts to become clearer.
The 2021-22 NBA regular season draws to a close on Sunday next with Tuesday’s results condemning the LA Lakers to miss out on a possible play-in spot as they fell to high flying Phoenix Suns couples with San Antonio’s win. Their absence will see LeBron James miss the playoffs for only the fourth time in his 19-year career, in which he has played in 10 NBA Finals and won four titles.
With an exceptional season record (63-16), it’s difficult to see anyone stopping the Phoenix Suns who are firm favourites to secure their first ever NBA title with the Arizona team now boosted with the return of talisman Chris Paul.
In the Eastern Conference, Miami Heat (52-28) lead the way with a resurgent and in-form Boston Celtics also set to mount a serious challenge for the 2021-22 title.
Wednesday’s NBA games:
Celtics @ Bulls: 8 pm start (ET)
The Bulls will be anxious to secure a home win to cement their play-off status as high flying Boston come to town. The Massachusetts based franchise are very much the in-form team in the NBA at present and tonight’s match-up will be the third meeting between both teams this season with one win a-piece.
Boston’s Jayson Tatum with a season average of 27 points and Bulls’ DeMar DeRozan (season average 28.2) are the players to watch.
Suns @ Clippers: 10 pm start (ET)
Basketball fans across the world are asking themselves the same question.... which team can stop the Phoenix Suns juggernaut as Monty Williams’ team continue their relentless domination? Even brief absences to the likes of Devin Booker and Chris Paul failed to stop the Suns from securing wins after win as they became the first team to secure top seeding in the play-off some weeks ago.
The Suns are in LA tonight to face he Clippers who will be in the play-in which runs from 12-15 April with tonight’s game set to pay tribute to five-time NBA All-Star, two-time coach of the year and former Clippers coach who died on Tuesday at the age of 90.
Mavericks @ Pistons: 7 pm start (ET)
Nets @ Knicks: 7:30 pm start (ET)
Wizards @ Hawks: 8 pm start (ET)
Thunder @ Jazz: 9 pm start (ET)
