I like the Celtics on Tuesday. The Warriors are 1-4 in their last five against 2020 Playoff teams, and all four of those losses have been by nine points or more.Phoenix Suns
Grant's questionable fit with a team that's clearly several years away from being several years away from contention makes him perhaps the most available of all the prospects listed, but that doesn't mean a deal would come cheap. Neither does his paycheck at $19 million, but with the forward putting up a career-high 23.7 points, 5.8 boards, 2.9 assists and 1.2 blocks per game, he may well be one of the better fits as well, assuming the Celtics send back some players to open up more touches for Grant.Indiana Pacers
Doncic has a point considering the Mavericks lost their back-to-back set against Phoenix by a combined seven points, with the latter defeat coming at the hands of a game-winning three from Devin Booker, so Dallas really might be close to turning things around. They better hope so, at least, because the West is unforgiving and an extended losing streak, even this early in the season, could really doom the Mavericks' playoff hopes.
Come for the well-justified Shaq slander. Stay for Rob Mahoney’s eloquent defense of the Utah Jazz as a legit contender.

Antetokounmpo's remarks came a day after James criticized the league's All-Star Game plans. Other stars spoke out against the game Friday, including the Brooklyn Nets' James Harden and the LA Clippers' Kawhi Leonard.
In an interview with NBA TV during the Clippers' media day last season, George answered a reporter's question wondering if he and Leonard were the top duo in the league by saying, "I think so. When you look at two guys that play on both ends, two guys that can go and get a basket, two guys that can stop you from getting a basket, elite on both ends, I don't see how you can beat that."Detroit Pistons
“Those are the type of wins you need, you know, momentum builders,” Lue said. “I thought that was a huge step forward for us.”New Orleans Pelicans
