Preview of the Final Week of the NBA

The NBA regular season is almost in the books. There is still a ton to play for across the league. Let’s look at some storylines below.

Lakers and Warriors battling for the play-in

The Lakers are currently in 9th place while the Warriors are in 10th place. Both of these teams are giving it everything they have in this last week to get up to the 8th seed. The 8th spot gives teams two chances to get in the playoffs. They play each other April 9th in a big game between two of the most popular teams in the league.

As of now it loos like Nikola Jokic will win the MVP. With Shai Gilgeous Alexander missing a handful of games this past week it has hurt his case. Luka Doncic also has a strong case as the Mavericks are playing some of the best basketball of the season here at the end. If Luka has another great week to get Dallas to the 4th seed, he may have a good case.

Downfall of the Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks have been suffering a major collapse at the end of the year. This slide has gone so far that they could be passed by both Orlando and New York for the second seed. As a preseason championship favorite, they have fallen way down and will look to get back on track at the end of the season.
