The 2020-21 NBA season is about a third of the way through, as each team has played well over 20 games out of their 72-game slate.
Milwaukee Bucks: Contender
It’s fair to be a bit skeptical about the Bucks, as they haven’t been able to get over the hump and out of the East despite having the best record in the league each of the past two seasons.
The Heat may have been able to take teams by surprise to a certain extent last season as several of their key contributors were young guys, but that isn’t happening this season after their run in Orlando. Given all the talent on the team, there’s certainly reason to believe that the Clippers could be the final team standing when all is said and done at the end of the season.
