This week on The Restart, The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor gives you two sleeper teams that could win the NBA championship in Orlando: the Dallas Mavericks and Toronto Raptors. Kevin breaks down how Luka Doncic evolved into a top-five NBA player and why his game is built for playoff basketball. Then he explains how under Nick Nurse the Raptors remained a defensive juggernaut after the departure of Kawhi Leonard, and why the elevated play of Pascal Siakam could lead Toronto to a repeat title. Plus, a brief look at the start of the NBA bubble and some other teams to keep an eye on.
