They haven't played for months. Teams get rusty from a normal off-season. Imagine a break without access to any fitness facilities whatsoever. You can throw normality out the window. Plus with players continually testing positive, the quality of their practice sessions at the moment is dubious at best.

The Raptors and the Bucks have a huge advantage over teams like the Lakers who are still trying to figure out their chemistry, rotations etc going into the playoffs.
