Well… Long time no see! The NBA season finally returning tonight as we are graced with two legendary matchups to kick off the season in style! Let us get into the action for tonight!
76ers vs. Celtics
The Celtics are recently coming off the possible firing of their “former” head coach, Ime Udoka. Also, with Danilo Gallinari and Robert Williams III out due to knee surgeries, this may be a tough matchup for the Celtics in the paint.
While on the other hand, The 76ers remained undefeated in the NBA Preseason. As well as adding two forwards that are bound to help improve the lacking size that the 76ers needed last season. James Harden and Embiid look to continue their bond on the floor. While Tyrese Maxey is bound to explode this season as a potential all-star guard.
Prediction: 76ers Win
Lakers vs. Warriors
The Warriors come into this game hot, off what many looked at as a shocking season where we saw them win an NBA title with the help of young uprising stars in Jordan Poole and Andrew Wiggins. Draymond Green will be the hot topic tonight as this is the first national regular season game since the training camp incident with Poole.
The Lakers are already a hot topic in the NBA, as many fans on Twitter have been sharing videos of Westbrook looking uninterested in the team. As he returns for opening night, he will have all eyes on him. Overall the team looks the same, with the addition of Patrick Beverly, who will be seemingly starting over Westbrook in the future.
Prediction: Warriors Win
Tonight is the night, the night that many players dream of since the day they were able to pick up a ball. The NBA Draft will consist of two rounds and we will cover the lottery here!. Live! Every pick and every college stat line for each player. As well as the trades that occur!

In this Preview, we will dig into the published lottery odds for tonight and take a quick look at the top 5 prospects in this year’s draft! Before we get into the team’s odds for this season. Let’s look at what is different in this year’s draft. The team that finished with the worst record is guaranteed to be in the top 5. While in previous years, the worst team was guaranteed to be in the top 4. The teams with the three worst records all have a 14% chance of receiving the coveted No. 1 overall pick. In years past, the team with the worst record had only a 25% chance, followed by a 19.9% chance and 15.6% chance for the following two teams.
Now finally lets look at the odds!!
Is your favorite team one of the favorites to get the No.1 pick tonight?
Interested in learning about the top 5 prospects? Here we go!
Chet has arguably the highest ceiling in the NBA Draft and looks to be the man who will be picked first in the NBA Draft. His ability to shoot 41% from the 3 as a 7-foot center will do wonders for any NBA team that picks him up. And, that could be the rockets. Who may look to move on from Christian Wood in the future to fully engulf this roster in young talent.
Paolo Banchero/ PF
Next to Chet, Paolo looks to be the next best in the draft. After coming off an impressive March Madness campaign, he has shown why he could have a high ceiling in the league. And like other power forwards in the league, such as Anthony Davis. He grew up as a point guard and had a growth spurt to 6-10. He has offensive versatility that any team could use.
At Purdue, many NBA scouts were worried about his ability to keep the ball and secure possessions. He may have a high turnover rate, but if the Pistons do end up with the third pick in the draft. This could be an essential pick for them going into the next season. Playing with a great playmaker in Cade could turn this duo into a scary one for the NBA.
Jabari Smith Jr/PF
OKC could be a lock to get the 4th pick in the draft as they are one of the worst teams in the league. With that being said, If OKC can stumble upon Jabari, who at a time was said to go first in the draft. They could have an almost complete starting lineup. Shai, Tre Mann, and Giddey have set an excellent foundation at OKC. could Jabari be that forward they need?
Now, many of you may be asking? Why is Shaedon Sharpe so high in the draft? He was the number 1 ranked player out of Highschool with the potential to be a Ja Morant guard with a high ceiling and ability to explode to the rim at any moment. While some don’t know his potential out of Highschool whatever team takes this risk will surely be rewarded.
With the NBA Draft lottery tonight and the start of the Eastern Conference finals, we are in for a spectacular night of NBA action.
What time does Celtics vs. Heat start?
- Date: Tuesday, May 17
- Time: 8:30 p.m. ET | 5:30 p.m. PT
Quick Hits Preview: Tonight, the Boston Celtics have the chance to begin their campaign back to the NBA finals. They have not made the NBA finals since 2010. But remember that they were very close in 2018, where we saw the young future stars in Tatum and Brown almost hand Lebron James the first conference finals loss of his career. With the Celtics more experienced and looking like a defensive juggernaut, the Miami Heat may be up for an exciting and challenging task in this series.
For the second time in three seasons, the Miami Heat are back in the East Conference finals behind Jimmy Butler; this team looks like a formidable opponent for the Boston Celtics. The Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics have played each other three times this year, with the Celtics taking 2 of those games.
Prediction: Boston Celtics Game 1 Win by ten or more points. The Boston Celtic’s defense has looked to dominate in this playoff run as of late. Locking Down Giannis and Kevin Durant in the last two rounds. And, with the Miami Heat’s sometimes stagnant offense. It may be a challenge for them tonight.
Stay tuned later for Quick Hits Results after the game!
