NBA Power Rankings: Storylines, must-see games and predictions for every team



Article Summary:

Bold prediction: After averaging just about 20 minutes a game in the first half, Wiseman will play at least five more minutes per game and average at least 15 points a game in the second half, up from about 12 in the first half.

Games to watch

  • March 13 vs. Thunder: Sandwiched between games against the Bucks, Nets and Sixers to start the second half of the schedule, the Knicks desperately need to get this game in Oklahoma City, the one game they’ll be given a significant chance of winning during that stretch. Sitting 2 1/2 games behind Indiana for the final play-in round spot with 36 games left to play – but holding a better record against conference opponents than four teams above them in the playoff picture, the Pacers included – will the Cavs make a push if Kevin Love returns healthy and provides spacing for Collin Sexton, Darius Garland and Isaac Okoro to keep progressing? Or will it be back to the lottery for the third straight season since LeBron James left?

    Games to watch

    • March 26 at Lakers: James had his best night of the season the last time he met his old squad: 46 points on 19-of-26 shooting, 8 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocks.

    Bold prediction: After registering double figures in just two games in the first half, rookie Chuma Okeke scores double figures in 10 games in the second half as his game continues to improve under head coach Steve Clifford.
