Celtics +1 1/2
Lakers and Denver Over 201
Clippers + 5 1/2
Ok fellas so first off....how are the Celts underdogs just because they are on the road? The last time the Celts played the hawks they sat the Big 3 and Avery Bradley almost shocked the Hawks starters and nearly beat the Hawks on their home court. I watched the game and there was about the same amount of fans there for the Celtics that were there for the Hawks. This pick to me is a gimmie I just can not see the Celts losing this game. Hawks without Hoford, Celts might not have Ray Allen but, i don't see that as an issue in Game 1 of this series with the way Bradley has stepped up. Celts are the better team and KG knows this may be his last shot to get the ring. The Celts are hot and no more back to backs, I expect a deep run by the aging BIG 3 and the young guns around them.
Now the Lakers and Denver over 201. Before making this pick you must know that not one time this season did the Lakers Denver game go over 201 points. Came close at 200 but did not go over 201........and today it will. Metta World Peace out simply means the Nuggets are going to score more, Peace's presence on the court is a game changer or lack their of Peace's presence. While Denver is 29th in points allowed a game and Kobe having his legs under him after sitting out the last regular season game. I see a high scoring entertaining game with a run and gun style.
Finally the Clippers +5 1/2
Paul and Blake finally get in the playoffs just to see the Memphis Grizzlies, the team who knocked the top seeded Spurs off, well looks like their work is cut out for them. Make no mistake the Clippers bench is a good one extremely athletic and expect better production from theirs then the Grizz. This whole series is going to be a close one. The Clips did lose on the Grizz's home court even though the whipped the Grizz by 16 at home. But lets just get to the point. The Clips are ready for this matchup, this is what they have been showcasing for. To think this won't at least be a close game for the Clips if not a win i think is just wrong. Its Oop-Ville we are talking about.
Good Luck today
