Royce O’Neale has noted how the Nets’ players have stepped up in an injury crisis, which included the side-lining of star man Kevin Durant: “It’s a lot of confidence going around, everybody’s taking the challenge, stepping up, finding out ways to win games.”

The morning of Saturday 11 February sees the Houston Rockets head to Florida to take on the Miami Heat (03:00 LIVE on ESPN 2), before the Los Angeles Clippers welcome the Milwaukee Bucks to the Arena in the ‘City of Angels’ (05:30 LIVE on ESPN 2).

The Clippers will be hoping they can call on the star duo of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, with coach Tyronn Lue noting, “When our two main guys are playing, we’re a different team.”

As for the Heat, centre Bam Adebayo believes Miami “are a hard team to beat […] when we get stops and run in transition”.

The final game of the weekend pits the Boston Celtics against the Memphis Grizzlies at the TD Garden on the evening of Sunday 12 February (21:00 LIVE on ESPN 2).

Celtics star Jaylen Brown recently praised the depth of their roster, as they look to make a run for the Championship: “To win in the NBA is hard enough, to win on the road down a bunch of guys is hard to do,” Brown explained.

“You don’t want to take it for granted, but we definitely have enough on this team, enough in this locker room, to win games whoever is on the floor.”
