10 May 01:30 Boston Celtics v Philadelphia 76ers
This is definitely a must-win game for the Celtics and I’m taking them to win this one. Boston does not want to go back to Philly 3-2 down and will want to capitalise on them having homecourt advantage. The Sixers have two wins in this series and James Harden had to drop 40+ points for them to get those wins, now Harden is not the Houston Harden we knew, he’s not that consistent in scoring and he won’t drop another 40-piece here.
Every time the Sixers have beaten the Celtics it’s been by a close margin while every time the Celtics have beaten the Sixers it’s always by a comfortable spread. Boston is winning this game, take the MoneyLine or them to cover the spread.
10 May 04:00 Denver Nuggets v Phoenix Suns
With the injury of Chris Paul the Suns have had to change their style of play, they have now made more threes per game since Paul’s injury, and they are playing at a faster pace. The last two games have gone over and this one will too. The Suns know that they are underdogs heading into this one and their stars Devin Booker and Kevin Durant will need to even put up more shots than in their previous game.
Devin Booker has been excellent during these playoffs he is averaging 36.8 ppg on 61% shooting, this is another game he’ll show his consistency. The Nuggets will not have trouble scoring, the Suns do not have an answer for Jokic and he’ll get to the rim and also assist his teammates. The over here will rely on if the Suns can keep up with the Nuggets but take the over here.
