NBA Scrimmages Today: LeBron James vs Luka Doncic, and Milwaukee Bucks vs. San Antonio Spurs
The basketball season is expected to take off in the NBA bubble in Orlando beginning July 30th. A total of 22 teams have traveled to Orlando, some being NBA title contenders and others trying to go deep into the playoffs. The NBA scrimmages began yesterday and will continue until the next few days Today's NBA scrimmagese will feature four games. Yesterday, there were also four NBA scrimmage games, with the LA Clippers, Denver Nuggets, New Orleans Pelicans and Miami Heat all coming out victorious. However, the rules for the first round of NBA scrimmage matches also have a slight tweak. They will each be forty minutes, that is to say four quarters of ten minutes
The organisation has made this decision for the NBA scrimmage matches because after coming out of a long four-month break, the players would be taxed to play twelve-minute quarters. That can result in injuries and early exhaustion, so this is a good NBA call. Often, because of the coronavirus pandemic and other causes a lot of teams do not have their full rosters with them right now. Milwaukee Bucks vs San Antonio Spurs, and the Portland Trail Blazers vs Indiana Pacers will be the first two matches. The Bucks, alongside the two LA teams, are one of the solid NBA championship contenders. Giannis Antetekoumpo is on track to win an NBA MVP award back to back. The Spurs are contesting for a playoff berth but have joined the NBA bubble without their assistant coach Tim Duncan who is looking after LaMarcus Alridge 's rehabilitation. The Bucks are this game's strong favorite and will win it comfortably despite an unlikely effort from Spurs. However, the other contest, Indiana Pacers vs Trail Blazers, should be a much closer affair. It will be a battle between the well-boiled side of Indiana versus individual stars of Trail Blazers. Damian Lillard led Trail Blazers during the season because of injuries to their main players at the frontcourt.
It’s the game you love, like you’ve never seen before with 22 teams, all in one place, ready to make history. It’s a #WholeNewGame— NBA (@NBA) July 22, 2020
