2022 has gotten off to an entertaining start to say the least.

The type of basketball that has graced the league since the All-Star break has been scintillating in terms of star-power, ability, and overall showmanship.

Game-winners nightly, insane dunks, and teams trying to make it out the mud highlight some of the main events.

Whether you are a one seed that is locked in for the playoffs and home advantage, or a lower seed that is currently fighting for a play-in, the stakes are high at this point of the season.

There is no room for much error at this point, and teams will know that, making every play of every game, imperative.

Game 1 - Tuesday March 29th, 2022 - Milwaukee Bucks Versus Philadelphia 76ers

Giannis Antetoukoumpo and his squad will be hungry to take on fellow MVP candidate Joel Embiid this upcoming Tuesday.

The defending champions are looking to build up chemistry and game-time situations, as most of their team is coming back healthy from injury.

Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday have been great contributors this season, and the Milwaukee “Big 3” is finally taking form.

The East is a loaded conference, and this team, even as reigning champions, gets overlooked often.

James Harden wants to make sure his move from the Nets was the right one, and there is no other way to prove such a thing, then to win games.

With potential MVP Joel Embiid by his side, this sixers team is deep and loaded with talent.

They will be keen to create some damage against a similar team when they face the Bucks.

Three point shooting has taken a hit with the trading of Seth Curry and co. but this team is still locked in for contention.

Selection: Milwaukee Bucks Moneyline, The better, more well-rounded team looks to make a statement in the East.

Game 2 - Wednesday March 30th, 2022 - Minnesota Timberwolves versus Toronto Raptors

Minnesota has a reason to be excited this basketball season.

A team with young, budding stars and solid veteran presence has formulated a formidable foe on the courts.

KAT is the leading all-star on this team, but Anthony Edwards has emerged as a nice complementary duo.

This team, when healthy, can do some major damage on both the offensive and defensive end.

How they head into the playoffs will be interesting to see, a berth that has plagued the city of Minneapolis for long now.

Toronto has been a pleasant surprise in the Eastern Conference this year.

A very raw and in-experienced team, they are led by former Finals winner Fred Van Vleet, and have a ton of pieces that are energetic and ready to play.

Selection: Timberwolves Moneyline, the one two duo of KAT and Ant will be too much to handle for the Raptors.
