Team News for OKC Thunder
Billy Donovan will probably not risk his regular starters for the scrimmages but will allow them to get a feel for the environment by providing them some minutes on the Hardwood.
Shai-Gilgeous Alexander, Dennis Schroder, and Steve Adams have a lot of talent up their sleeve and Billy Donovan will be hoping he can put all of that to good use during the seeding games.
Who’s ready for some Thunder basketball?

Team News for Boston Celtics
The team is heading into the season return as the top contenders for the Eastern Conference Finals. Kemba Walker and Jaylen Brown had enough time to recover from their injuries. It will be interesting to see how Brad Stevens eases them into the team.
Jayson Tatum on the other hand will be raring to go, and making a statement in the Bubble. He is by far the best player the Celtics have got and there’ll be a lot resting on his shoulders if the Celtics want to go deep into the playoffs.
The young team will look to adapt to the new surrounding which will help them in the seeding games, starting from July 30.
