Why the Magic can cover

Guard Jalen Suggs has been a bolt of energy in the backcourt. Suggs plays stifling defense on opposing guards and uses his terrific instincts to make plays on both sides of the ball.

Why the 76ers can cover

Guard Kelly Oubre Jr. has made a positive impact in the frontcourt for the 76ers. Oubre Jr. can put the ball on the deck consistently by either attacking the basket or shooting off the dribble. The Kansas product averages 15.5 points, five boards and 1.2 steals per game. On April 7 versus the Spurs, the 28-year-old tallied 26 points, eight rebounds and five assists.

Guard Buddy Hield is a knockdown shooter on the outside. Hield consistently moves without the ball to create space and excels as a catch-and-shoot option. The Oklahoma product averages 12 points, 2.8 assists and shoots 38% from beyond the arc. In his last outing, Hield notched 18 points, six boards, and went 5-of-9 from 3-point land. See which team to pick here.
