NBA Picks Basketball Semi-Finals
Grizzlies +8. Grizzlies defence has been much better since Steven Adams is back in the line up. Warriors at home will get a big boost and the Grizzlies offense isn’t as good one the road. Otto Porter is questionable, but if he misses the game, Kuminga will get more reps and that might actually be good for the Warriors. I’m gonna ride my Grizzlies that they can at least keep the game close.
Grizzlies +3 1q. I’m also gonna take the Grizzlies to cover the 1st half spread. Warriors start out slow in offense. Why the Warriors could be motivated to light up the Grizzlies after getting torched last game, I don’t buy the narrative. Its a vet group that wont change how they play after a bad performance. If anything, I expect the Warriors to step up on defence instead. But I still think Grizzlies do enough in both sides to cover the 1q spread.
Celtics ML 2q. Celtics have now won 4 out of 5 2nd quarters this series. Celtics have the best 2nd quarter defence and are equally as good one the road. The Bucks have the 14th best 2nd quarter defence. On offense, the Bucks have the 10th best 2nd quarter scoring team and are better at home. Celtics have the 22nd best 2nd quarter offense. I have to again fade the Bucks depth guys without Middleton playing. Gonna ride with Celtics ML 2nd quarter.
