Safe money has the reigning two-time NBA champion Golden State Warriors and loaded Boston Celtics on a collision course for the 2018-19 title.

The Warriors are coming off their third title in four years and acquired All-Star big man DeMarcus Cousins this summer on a cheap one-year contract.

Boston, meanwhile, is expected to have Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward at close to 100 percent health for the start of training camp. Without two of their leaders, the team still managed to get within one victory of an NBA Finals berth last season.

The Toronto Raptors made the most noticeable jump, thanks in large part to their blockbuster acquisition of two-time Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard.
