While the Celtics and Nuggets have remained steady, a few potential suitors no longer appear to be in contention, at least according to oddsmakers.

On Sunday morning, the Sixers and Bucks were far from winning everything, at +3300 and +6000, respectively.

However, after both players lost on Sunday, their chances got even longer. Philly moved to +6500 and Milwaukee to +9500.

As of Tuesday, the Sixers are +7000, while the Bucks have dropped further, to +16000, likely because Giannis Antetokounmpo and Damian Lillard will miss Tuesday’s Game 5 due to injury.

Philly and Milwaukee trail 3-1 in their first-round series.

As for the teams that are no longer in the odds table, the Lakers are at the top of the list, having lost in five games to the defending champion Nuggets in the first round.

Now the focus turns to what’s next for their superstar LeBron James, who has a player option ahead of next season.

On Tuesday’s edition of “Undisputed,” Skip Bayless said Hollywood should remain home to James…and his son, Bronny.

“That’s a lot of noise to me. He’s going to be a Laker. … His son is going to be a Laker. I bet you on that because Klutch (Sports Agency) is going to make it happen. … (The Lakers) can offer ( LeBron) three more years for $164 million That’s a lot of money, and he also earned that money because he’s still the face, not only of this franchise, but he’s still the face of the league. .
