A 1-1 record last night.

The Jazz and Nuggets continued their scoring barrage with an over win for us with the over. The Nuggets offense was very impressive as they made this series 3-2. Jamal Murray finished with 42 points, eight rebounds and eight assists. Nikola Jokic had a big game as well with 31 points. Denver had a monster fourth quarter to grab the win as they finished the final frame with a 35-21 score.

We took the loss with the Clippers demolishing the Mavericks. Luka Doncic looked a little more human while Paul George finally had the game that the Clippers have been waiting for. George had 35 points in just 25 minutes to silence some of the haters. The Clippers now lead the series 3-2.

Tonight we have three Game 5s with two teams in a position to close things out.

Orlando Magic vs. Milwaukee Bucks Betting Tips:

-14 is a lot of points, but the Bucks have won the last three games by 14 or more points and there is no reason to think that won’t continue here. The more we’ve seen from this series, the more we’ve seen that game one was the flukiest fluke.

Giannis just took the Defensive Player of the Year award yesterday and I can see him celebrating with a dominating defensive performance. Khris Middleton had a much better game and if he can build on that, the Bucks should roll.

Bet Bucks -14

Oklahoma City Thunder at Houston Rockets Betting Tips:

I’ve been off on this series all along, but the totals do tell a story. They’ve gone over in three of the four games in this series and the scoring has gone up even more as the Thunder have evened the series. You would think just the opposite, but the Thunder are winning the higher scoring games.

Houston is a favorite here, but I am not going to bet on that one. I do think that Harden has a big game here, there is way too much about Dort shutting him down for him not to, but I can see this one going either way. I think we see another high-scoring game here and an easy over.

Bet Thunder/Rockets Over 224.5

Portland Trail Blazers at Los Angeles Lakers Betting Tips:

Damian Lillard is listed as out for this one and that’s all you need to know about this one. The Blazers are a team that has simply never had enough players to really compete. They dusted Carmelo Anthony off the scrap pile and that’s worked out great, but let’s not act like he is vintage Carmelo. CJ McCollum is good, but he’s not going to do great with all of the defensive focus that is usually on Lillard being on him. I just don’t see this ending well for them.

The Lakers seem up to the challenge and LeBron has been there and done that enough to know that the Blazers are going to try to catch them off guard. It’s a lot of points to lay, but I think they’ll be locked in defensively and have this one locked up.

Bet Lakers -13
