2022 NBA Week 10
- When: Monday, Dec. 19 – Sunday, Dec. 25
Milwaukee Bucks vs. New Orleans Pelicans
- Monday, Dec. 19
This game will come down to who can better protect the paint against both of these freaks of nature, but it will be no easy task.
Milwaukee is 16-11-2 against the spread, whereas New Orleans is 15-14.
Memphis Grizzlies vs. Denver Nuggets
- Tuesday, Dec. 20
Two Western Conference powerhouses go at it, as Nikola Jokic looks to continue his quest for a third straight MVP Award with a healthy Nuggets team by his side.
Ja Morant and the Grizzlies are as tough and scrappy as they come, as they’ll look to attack the rim but also move the ball around for open looks behind the arc.
Memphis is 14-13-2 against the spread, whereas Denver is 12-16.
Milwaukee Bucks vs. Cleveland Cavaliers
- Wednesday, Dec. 21
Both of these teams are expected to be in the hunt for the top seed in the Eastern Conference. The Bucks bring more veteran and championship experience, whereas the Cavs are a younger team but could be a perennial championship threat for years to come.
Jarrett Allen is going to have a tall task in trying to defend the paint against the likes of Giannis Antetokounmpo, but if “The Fro” can match the physicality of the “Greek Freak,” then the Cavs could easily take this game in front of their home fans.
Milwaukee is 16-11-2 against the spread, whereas Cleveland is 16-13-2.
Milwaukee Bucks vs. Brooklyn Nets
- Friday, Dec. 23
The Nets and Bucks have developed a little rivalry over these past few years, given the tough battles they’ve had, as they’re both expected to remain on top of the standings in the league.
The battle of two of the best in the league go at it in Kevin Durant and Giannis Antetokounmpo. Will KD’s sky-high efficiency be too much for the Bucks, or will Giannis’ physicality inside the paint be too much for the Nets? Get your popcorn ready. This is going to be a battle.
Milwaukee is 16-11-2 against the spread, whereas Brooklyn is 14-16-1.
Los Angeles Clippers vs. Philadelphia 76ers
- Friday, Dec. 23
Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are starting to get into a rhythm now that both are healthy, and the Sixers are starting to look elite, with Joel Embiid and James Harden finding chemistry together.
This game will come down to how effective those two duos can be.
Los Angeles is 16-16 against the spread, whereas Philadelphia is 16-11-1.
