Sixers and Mavericks have their backs against the wall

We don’t know about you, but we stretched well after this last night without the NBA. We are perked up and that’s good, because the Playoffs resume tonight. Two games, two huge opportunities for the Heat and the Suns, two dangers for the Sixers and the Mavs. At table !


  • 1h : Sixers – Heat (0-2, en direct sur BeIN Sports 1)
  • 3h30 : Mavericks – Suns (0-2, live on BeIN Sports 1)


The Woj announced it, Joel Embiid should be unavailable for this crucial Game 3 against the Heat. This series promised to be exciting but the absence of the probable MVP is starting to last, and the flavor of the confrontation takes a serious hit. But Philly is not going to let go, with Tyrese Maxey at the helm rather than James Harden. The first has just planted 34 points in Game 2, for the moment he represents a greater danger than the second who must absolutely step-up, because afterwards, it will be too late. Philly must win to keep hope and allow the Cameroonian to return at the most important moment. The Heat does not hear the thing of this ear. The mission of Erik Spoelstra’s troupe: get it over with as quickly as possible and arrive fresh for the conference final. Miami can extinguish its opponent’s hopes tonight.

The Mavs are in a position similar to that of the Sixers, that is to say on the hot seat. Except that to save the furniture, the leader of the team will be on the floor. Luka Doncic is magic in this series with a Game 1 at 45 points and a second at 35. However, he is still lonely in scoring against a team that has been shooting at least 50% since the start of the Playoffs. The Suns could chain a ninth game with at least one shot in two that ends up in the basket. The Point God and company intend to continue their momentum, and come to impose themselves in the room of Dallas. The hopes of the Mavs rest on the shoulders of the Slovenian but also on those of his teammates, in particular Jalen Brunson who had started these Playoffs at the bottom of the balloons and who now… hardly fits any more. Now is the time to regain your feelings.

The locals need to wake up and for that, nothing better than playing at home. Fans would have the good idea to raise the temperature of the room to help their darlings overthrow the favorites. See you at 1 a.m. for boiling matches!
