With these two big men back in the line-up, the Trail Blazers have a great chance to earn a spot in the NBA playoffs. However, there are several teams that will be fighting for the #8/#9 seeds in the West.

Heat Get Two Youngsters Back
Kendrick Nunn and Bam Adebayo both previously tested positive for COVID-19, but they’ve been able to return to the Heat after quarantining. Both players are pumped to play in the reseeding games.
Miami are the #4 seed in the East right now and will likely maintain that position.
Are the Clippers Committed to Winning a Championship?
With the mandatory quarantine rules in place if you leave the NBA bubble, players have to be careful about leaving the bubble. Right now, the Clippers are without Patrick Beverley, Montrezl Harrell and now Lou Williams. It’s fine for now, but once the season restarts it won’t be.
That’s going to be a problem that all NBA teams have to deal with once we restart.
Players have lives outside of basketball and sometimes they need to attend to a situation, but with the quarantine rules, if a player leaves the bubble, they must quarantine 4+ days once back.
The Knicks Appear Ready to Sign...
While not news from the NBA bubble, as the Knicks are already enjoying the off-season, but there was a recent report out this weekend that said the Knicks are going to sign Tom Thibodeau.
Reportedly, the Knicks want to ink the head coach to a five-year deal.
Will Thibodeau be the coach that saves the Knicks and gets them back into the playoffs?
It’ll depend on the players. Thibs can be a tough coach to play for because he pushes his players hard, but if the players buy-in, Thibodeau is a coach that could improve the Knicks.

Growing up in Toronto, Scott is a huge fan of all Toronto teams.
He watches the Maple Leafs and Raptors religiously. Scott also enjoys watching the Blue Jays, Argonauts and TFC.
His best sports memory was when the Raptors were crowned the 2019 NBA Champions. Unfortunately, he’s still waiting for the Maple Leafs to win a Stanley Cup during his lifetime.
Scott may be a diehard fan of Toronto sports teams, but he loves watching all sports. He’s a huge UFC fan (look for his UFC betting articles for most events) and he’ll watch just about anything, including tennis, golf, soccer and cricket.
Scott is a numbers guy and he likes digging deep into the statistics when handicapping games. He also likes to identify value bets in markets most bettors overlook, including player/team props.
When he’s not handicapping and watching sports, he enjoys golfing in the warmer months. He also loves burgers and poutine. Not only is that his favorite meal, but he has tried over 100 burgers in Toronto and he’s constantly looking for the best new burgers in the city.
