Joel Embiid crosses paths with his former friend Jimmy Butler, we are already rubbing our hands


What could be better than a Saturday evening with a dozen NBA games on the program including a big clash in the East? We seek but we do not find. You guessed it, we’re still going to be entitled to a nice menu on the League Pass and we’re here to present it all to you. Come on, preview!

# THE MATCH OF THE NIGHT, FINALLY ACCORDING TO US

Heat – Sixers (2h): two teams in form, with stars on each side and the intensity of an Eastern clash, all in the mild climate of South Beach. Yes, it is above all in Miami that it will be necessary to be tonight, with the Heat of Jimmy Butler which welcomes the Sixers of Joel Embiid. The two former friends, who evolved during a season together in Philly not so long ago, will thus meet for a duel which promises to cause some sparks. Erik Spoelstra’s men took second place in the East after winning four straight, perfect to prepare for the future return of Bam Adebayo on Monday. But with the absence of the latter this evening, Joel Embiid could continue his work, he who has been performing MVP caliber perfs lately. We like Omer Yurtseven and Dewayne Dedmon, but neither of them is able to get in Jojo’s way to stop him. Jimmy Butler therefore risks having to pull out all the stops to help Miami continue its big streak. Squatting quite a bit in the infirmary lately, Buckets made his comeback yesterday against Atlanta and he is already in good shape (23 points – 10 assists in 32 minutes). In short, we should have fun!

# ALSO WATCH

  • Bucks – Raptors to start the evening, that should warm us up. This will be an opportunity to see if the Dinos can slow down the Giannis phenomenon with their army of outsiders.
  • The best player in the world Kyle Kuzma will face the Blazers tonight. A match not to be missed.
  • Hawks – Knicks, could have been interesting with a working Cam Reddish. Luckily there’s still Trae Young.
  • The Bulls took two jails in a row against Brooklyn and Golden State. Expected reaction in Boston, even without Zach LaVine.
  • Nikola Jokic against LeBron James, two styles but above all two monsters. Not a bad way to end the evening, right?

Beautiful night in perspective! And tomorrow is Sunday so we want to see you on the job tonight in front of the games. We, of course, will be there, with coffee and a smile.
