NBA Opening Day 2021-22

It feels like Christmas Eve.

At 10.40am tomorrow morning, the Milwaukee Bucks begin their title defence against the title favourites, the Brooklyn Nets.

Last season we were treated to an epic 7 game series between these two teams, fitting of an NBA Finals match up had they not been in the same conference.

Brooklyn were hobbled though, losing Kyrie Irving early in the series, and James Harden playing on one leg. That just shows how special Kevin Durant is to get this thing to 7 games, and if not for a toe on the line, had his squad into the Eastern Conference Finals.


We all know how that ended, as Milwaukee strolled past the Atlanta Hawks in the Conference Finals (mostly without Giannis), and went on to defeat the Phoenix Suns in the NBA Finals.


It’s hard to know what this Nets team will be this season. Will Kyrie play? Is James Harden back to full fitness? If those answers are a yes, then it’s hard to see anyone beating them.

If Kyrie is a no show, that opens the field right up!


Milwaukee v Brooklyn

In what will be a mouth-watering contest to open the season, Kevin Durant goes head to head with Giannis Antetokounmpo in a clash of the titans and East’s elite.

You could argue that these two are the very best in the game today, and will no doubt be in the conversation for MVP at the end of the season.

But with the raising of the banner and ring ceremony tomorrow in Milwaukee, this team will look to start their season on the right track with a statement victory.

Giannis will be in for another monster night with the likes of Griffin and Millsap having their hands full guarding him!

Jrue Holiday matching up with James Harden will also have some eyes on them, as with a big performance against the All-Star guard, Holiday goes a long way to DPOY conversations.


Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State:

Staples Center is sure to be pumping tomorrow night, with LeBron James leading the Lakers against Steph Curry and the Warriors.

Golden State will still be without Klay Thompson but have another ace up their sleeve tomorrow night.

Jordan Poole has been ballin’ in the preseason, and will be needed to fire along with Curry if they’re any chance of causing the opening night upset.


The Lakers didn’t win a game in the preseason, so this game alone has some people talking about their prospects for the upcoming season.

Not that preseason means a whole lot, but losing your opening 7 games wouldn’t exactly be ideal to start your campaign.


In the end, the Lakers open their season with a win on their home floor, but not before a huge night from Steph Curry (GIVE US 40 STEPH!!).


What’s your opening night predictions??
