09 May 01:30 Miami Heat v New York Knicks
The under was the bet to go for in game 3 as Miami blew out the Knicks and only allowed them to register 86 points. In game 3 it was under 200 and I am taking the under in game four here. Bam Adebayo played much better in front of the homecourt and he guarded Julius Randle really well. Miami will go with the same play of double-teaming Jalen Brunson here, and without Jalen getting comfortable space the Knicks will struggle to have an efficient scoring night. A secondary bet would be to be on Miami to win, they haven’t lost on homecourt during this post-season, they are riding on confidence, take them.
09 May 04:00 Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors
The Warriors cannot match the offensive depth that the Lakers possess and that is why I am backing LA. The Lakers are better at driving to the rim than Golden State, so they have been getting more free thows. The Lakers’ defence has been solid and they force Golden State into making bad shots and making more turnovers. The Warriors didn’t play well during the regular season and in the first 2 games against the Kings in the first round, you have to consider their bad away record here too. Take the Lakers to win.
