There’s only six games of NBA action on this Tuesday, but there’s no shortage of big matchups!

Take a look at some of the top storylines to follow:

  • Isaiah Thomas will get his first start for the Wizards – his first start since 2018 with the Los Angeles Lakers.
  • Can the Russell Westbrook-less Rockets bounce back from a blowout loss against the Heat?
  • Will the Timberwolves be able to stay hot and hold off the Bucks without Karl-Anthony Towns?
  • The 76ers put their undefeated record on the line versus a surging Suns team.

Houston Rockets vs. Memphis Grizzlies

BOX SCORE | PLAY-BY-PLAY

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Minnesota Timberwolves

PREVIEW | BOX SCORE | PLAY-BY-PLAY

This is the second game of Karl-Anthony Towns’ two game suspension, so the Timberwolves will be without their All-Star centre as they host the Bucks. Can Minnesota find a way to slow down Giannis Antetokounmpo or will the reigning MVP terrorize the T’Wolves without their star player?

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Phoenix Suns

PREVIEW | BOX SCORE | PLAY-BY-PLAY

The undefeated 76ers put their perfect record on the line as they’ll be without All-Star centre Joel Embiid, who is serving the second game of his two-game suspension. Can Philly remain unbeaten or will this fiesty Suns team pull off another early-season upset?

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Golden State Warriors

PREVIEW | BOX SCORE | PLAY-BY-PLAY

Damian Lillard has a history of big games against the Warriors, but unfortunately, this matchup will not be a duel of Lillard versus Stephen Curry. Can the Warriors’ role players and rookies find a way to overcome the backcourt duo of Lillard and McCollum?
