Damian Lillard saved Portland’s season last night by ending the series before going to game 7 in Houston. The other two teams were not so lucky as there are 5 game 7’s starting with three today.
Last Night: 5-1
Atlanta Hawks @ Indiana Pacers
Atlanta blew their chance to end the series when they let the Pacers finish on a 15 to 5 run to end the game.
None of the players were suspended for game 7 after the altercation in game 6.
I still expect a close game in game 7 and 6.5 points is a lot to give either team.
Prediction: Hawks +6.5 and Over 184.5
Memphis Grizzlies @ Oklahoma City Thunder
Zach Randolph is suspended one game for a “light punch” to Steven Adams.
The suspension is a joke and its the NBA’s way of keeping Durant the MVP in the playoffs.
OKC will run away with this game but 9.5 points…
Prediction: Memphis +9.5 and Under 185
Golden State Warriors @ Los Angeles Clippers
GSW forced a game 7, but can they really go into LA and steal another one?
The winner of this has the same rest as the winner of the Thunder/Grizzlies for round 2.
Mark Jackson is rumored to be out of a job no matter the outcome of the series.
Prediction: GSW +7.5 and Over 206.5
