Only the best 22 of the league’s 30 teams are taking part. Each team will play eight games to finish the regular season and the top seven teams in each conference will advance. The final eighth seed in each conference will be determined by a potential play-in tournament before the traditional 16-team playoffs.
This season after many years, LeBron James’ LA Lakers are the outstanding favorites to win the title after occupying the top spot of the Western Conference with a 49-14 mark at the moment the games were postponed. They now stand at the 52-18 mark and still top of the conference.
The Clippers were considered favorites to win the title after they added to their ranks Kawhi Leonard and Paul George at the start of the season, and yes, they have pushed the Lakers to their limits, occupying the second spot at the moment.
The only squad with a better mark than the Lakers is the Milwaukee Bucks. Led by the Greek Freak Giannis Antetokounmpo, they have benefited from playing in the significantly weaker Eastern Conference.
The NBA on StarTimes is a continuous assurance to customers, that StarTimes will always give their viewers the best and affordable quality sports.
