There are few opportunities to consolidate or conquer achievements in this regular season and this day seems key for it. There will be seven games, in which many teams will play all for all. These are the duels in which important things are at stake:
San Antonio Spurs vs Houston Rockets (8:00 p.m. PST): Texan derby with Spurs in need of a win to keep them in the fight for the play-in. Those of Haren seek to squeeze their options to be third.
Philadelphia 76ers vs Phoenix Suns (10:30 PM PST): Brett Brown’s men squeeze their chances of finishing fifth, despite not having their strongholds, and the Suns are forced to win to stay with playoff options.
Memphis Grizzlies vs Boston Celtics (11:00 p.m. PST): There is no margin of error for those of Tennessee, who will try to take advantage of the fact that the Celtics do not play anything.
Dallas Mavericks vs Portland Trail Blazers (12:30 AM PST): Doncic’s men have a slim chance of finishing sixth, while Portland needs a win to catapult them to eighth.
