The Golden State Warriors were scheduled to play the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday at the Chase Center without any fans in attendance.
Gobert touched a bunch of mics and now he’s sick. The Jazz center didn’t act smart.
The 2020 NBA playoffs were supposed to begin on Saturday, April 18. Because the season is “suspended” and not “canceled,” there is some hope games could be played again, but that’s not likely.
If the 2019-20 season is really over, the Milwaukee Bucks will have finished with the best record in the NBA again. The Los Angeles Lakers are right behind the Bucks.
