The NBA season is now onto week fifteen and is the playoff seedings are starting to become more realized, teams will be eager to create separation, or close down the hatchet. Teams are dealing with many external hindrances, but it is up to them and their organizations to create opportunities to succeed. With less than half the games left in the season, all-stars and role players will need to tee up, and take things a little more seriously. Let’s dive into some of the more entertaining and action-packed games with potential this week!

January 25th   – Los Angeles Lakers vs Brooklyn Nets

There are always intense looks when the Lakers face the Brooklyn Nets, and mainly because of the rivalry between Lebron James and Kevin Durant. Although Durant will be missing from this matchup, Lebron and co. will still feel willed to put on a great performance against one of the favourites for an NBA title this year. The Lakers have not been playing well at all this season and are heavily underperforming for their standards. If they can sneak a win here, it would bode wonders for their confidence, however I don’t think that’s happening.

January 26th   – Milwaukee Bucks vs Cleveland Cavaliers

Milwaukee and Giannis are looking like the best team in the NBA at the moment. With players that can fulfil every role well, and shoot the lights out, this team looks potent to repeat as an NBA title winner. Beating opponents such as: Golden State, Brooklyn, and Memphis recently, their forward progress has been explicated. The Cleveland Cavaliers will not be an easy team to beat, although, as they are one of the best defensive teams in the NBA combined with offensive efficiency. Look for Giannis and his team to continue their run, and cement their place in the NBA top royalty.

January 28th   – Los Angeles Clippers vs Miami Heat

Well, don’t look now but the Los Angeles Clippers are quickly slipping into oblivion. Following their counterparts in Los Angeles, the Clippers are not playing well without their two stars Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. They will have tons of pressure put on them to win this game, as they fight for their playoff lives. Kawhi and PG13 could not come sooner, and Ty Lue needs them.
