It feels like some time has passed since we’ve had a true marquee NBA matchup. The past few days’ slates haven’t been the most exciting, but thankfully tonight’s breaks that streak with the first- and third-place teams in the East — the Bucks and Celtics, respectively — going head-to-head.

And to be fair, tonight should have included two marquee games had the Warriors’ season not taken such a drastic turn.

But as far as sharp action goes, the pros seem far more interested in games other than Celtics-Bucks. In fact, they’ve actually found some value on that Warriors meeting with the Nuggets, as well as Suns vs. Knicks at MSG.
