NBA Power Rankings: Suns hold on to top spot, Celtics climb to second

  NBA Power Rankings: Suns hold on to top spot, Celtics climb to second Boston is the hottest team in the East and a legit contender. 1. Suns (58-14, Last Week No. 1). Phoenix has gone 10-4 without Chris Paul (and Devin Booker missed some games in there as well) and is about to get the Point God back for a final push to lock up the best record in the NBA and home-court throughout the playoffs. The Suns’ magic number to lock up the best record is one — they are nine games better than the team with the second-best record (Grizzlies).

Who's Playing

Oklahoma City @ Utah

Current Records: Oklahoma City 24-55; Utah 47-32

What to Know

The Oklahoma City Thunder have enjoyed the comforts of home their last four games, but now they must head out on the road. They and the Utah Jazz will face off at 9 p.m. ET April 6 at Vivint Arena without much rest after finishing up games yesterday. Oklahoma City hasn't won a contest against Utah since Aug. 1 of 2020, but they'll be looking to end the drought on Wednesday.

The Thunder sure made it a nail-biter, but they managed to escape with a 98-94 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday. The win came about thanks to a strong surge after the third quarter to overcome an 82-67 deficit. Oklahoma City can attribute much of their success to small forward Jaylen Hoard, who dropped a double-double on 24 points and 21 rebounds.

Key Nets player admits he will not be back with team next season

  Key Nets player admits he will not be back with team next season The Brooklyn Nets will have to capitalize on their window right now if they want to win a championship with one particular player on the roster. Nets center Andre Drummond admitted in remarks to reporters this week that he will be leaving the team after this season. “If we’re all being honest, I’m only here until the rest of the season,” said Drummond, per Sam Quinn of CBS Sports. “Who knows what’s gonna happen in the offseason?”The context was that Drummond was speaking about backup center Nicolas Claxton and how the Nets were smart to keep Claxton at the trade deadline.

Meanwhile, it may have taken overtime to finish the job, but Utah ultimately got the result they were hoping for on Tuesday with a 121-115 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies. The score was all tied up at the break 50-50, but Utah was the better team in the second half. They relied on the efforts of center Rudy Gobert, who posted a double-double on 22 points and 21 boards, and point guard Jordan Clarkson, who had 22 points and five assists in addition to five boards. That makes it six consecutive games in which Gobert has had at least 11 rebounds.

The Thunder have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the 15 point spread they are up against. The odds have been favorable for them against the spread on the road this season, even if it's been tough sledding overall. They are 27-11 ATS in away games but only 49-27-3 all in all.

NBA Power Rankings: Suns stay on top but Bucks, Mavericks climbing fast

  NBA Power Rankings: Suns stay on top but Bucks, Mavericks climbing fast Memphis is comfortably No. 2, but watch out for the Bucks. 1. Suns (61-14, Last Week No. 1). You know Devin Booker is playing well when a player getting MVP mentions in his own right — Ja Morant — says Booker needs to be getting more MVP love. Traditionally, the highest scoring player on the best team gets MVP consideration (just don’t tell Donovan Mitchell that because he was those things last season and…), Booker is those things this season and deserves mention at least, maybe a spot on the ballot. He has a chance to finish fourth or fifth in the voting. Everything with the Suns is in cruise control, they have locked up the No.

The wins brought Oklahoma City up to 24-55 and the Jazz to 47-32. Oklahoma City is 9-14 after wins this year, Utah 29-17.
