Team Giannis vs. Team LeBron TV Coverage: TNT
To begin with the rosters were selected by a combined vote of fans, media, and players. An absolute who is who list of players will compete in the game. It follows that the matchup should be even with the NBA All Star game betting odds. Consistent with that is the fact that there will not be much defense played in the game. Specifically, extremely high scores are the rule rather than the exception with the All-Star Game.
At the onset two of the most underrated coaches in the NBA will lead both teams. Team Giannis is led by Mike Budenholzer of the Milwaukee Bucks. Counter to that is Team LeBron being led by Michael Malone of the Denver Nuggets. Giannis and Budenholzer have transformed Milwaukee into a top Eastern Conference playoff contender. While Malone has quietly made the Nuggets a top threat in the West.
Giannis Antetokounmpo and Co.
Giannis Antetokounmpo deserves to have an All-Star team named after him. Consider his dominant numbers of 27 points and 12.5 rebounds per game. Philadelphia center Joel Embiid adds to the draw to Team Giannis. Embiid has compiled 27.4 points and 13.5 rebounds per outing. More emphatically its difficult to state how important Embiid has been for the transformation of the 76ers franchise. Along the same lines Toronto’s Kawhi Leonard is an outstanding selection. Leonard averages 27 points and 7.7 rebounds per matchup. Likewise, Boston guard Kyrie Irving is the trigger man of the Celtics attack.
Naturally Stephen Curry is the top online sportsbook asset for Team LeBron. Curry has compiled 28.6 points and 5.3 assists per game. Additional support from Golden State comes from forward Kevin Durant. In turn Durant averages 27.5 points and 7.1 rebounds per game. Curry and Durant have combined to make Golden State one of the most dominant teams in NBA history. And then there is scoring machine James Harden. Last year’s scoring champion is poised for a repeat with 36.5 points per game. Just for good measure Harden adds 7.8 assists per outing.
Matchup to Watch
On this occasion Team LeBron may miss LeBron due to his nagging groin injury. Team Giannis looks like a potentially good value for NBA All Star Games betting odds. Giannis and company are newer names that are looking for fame that already belongs to Team LeBron’s top players.
