Eastern Conference First Round – Game 4 – 76ers lead 2-1
Philadelphia at Miami (TNT, 2:35 p.m. ET)

The NBA is a make or miss league and that mantra has not been more apparent than for this series. The 76ers have won each of their two games against the Heat by knocking down 18 three-pointers in each victory. In the lone loss in Game 2, Philadelphia was limited to 7-of-36 shooting from downtown.

Oh, and having Joel Embiid in the lineup helps, too.

After missing the first two games of this series due to an eye injury, Embiid shook off a slow start by scoring a team-high 23 points, including 10 points from the foul line. The 76ers drilled 18-of-34 three-point attempts in a 128-108 blowout of the Heat as 2 ½-point favorites to capture a 2-1 series lead. The dagger came in the fourth quarter as Philadelphia outscored Miami, 32-14, marking the second win in the series by the Sixers by more than 20 points.

All five Philadelphia starters finished in double-figures, as Ben Simmons scored 19 points and pulled down 12 rebounds for his second double-double in the series. Marco Belinelli emerged off the bench once again as a spark by posting 21 points, while Dario Saric also put up 21 points, as both players canned four treys.

The Heat lost in spite of hitting 16 three-pointers, as Justise Winslow and Josh Richardson each converted on four attempts from downtown. However, Dwyane Wade came back down to Earth following his 28-point performance in Game 2, as the Heat guard was limited to 2-of-10 shooting for eight points on Thursday. Center Hassan Whiteside was a non-factor for the third straight game by scoring five points in 13 minutes, moving his series total to 11 points and 12 rebounds.

Following Thursday’s victory, the 76ers improved to 18-1 SU and 13-6 ATS the last 19 games dating back to March 15. In this stretch, Brent Brown’s squad has covered in five of seven opportunities as a road favorite with the two non-covers coming as double-digit chalk in wins over the Hawks and Knicks.

VegasInsider.com NBA expert Tony Mejia chimes in on this pivotal Game 4 matchup, “What can Erik Spoelstra and his staff do to adjust to Embiid’s presence now that they’ve seen that not doubling to get the ball out of his hands isn’t an option? Kelly Olynyk will likely get the most minutes in small lineups with Whiteside looking like a no-show, which means we’ll likely see the pace continue to favor Philadelphia since Miami won’t be able to get the game slowed down unless the 76ers suffer through another brutal shooting game like they did in Game 2.”

Will it be another shootout in Miami? “The total opened at 217 and has been bet down into the 215 range. The odd-numbered games have gotten into the 230's and reached 216 in spite of Philly’s 7-for-36 effort on 3-pointers this past Monday, so I’m not certain this series can be slowed down to the Heat’s liking,” Mejia notes.

The Heat have one play-on angle for Saturday, at least according to a trend from the 2017 postseason. Home teams trailing a series, 2-1 put together a solid 4-1 record in Game 4’s, with the Rockets winning at Oklahoma City in the first round being the only outlier.

Western Conference First Round – Game 4 – Pelicans lead 3-0
Portland at New Orleans (TNT, 5:05 p.m. ET)

The Blazers closed out the regular season by knocking off the Jazz to grab coveted home-court advantage in the opening round of the playoffs. It seems like that was the worst-possible scenario for Portland, who lost both games at home to New Orleans, followed by a 17-point setback on Thursday to fall into an insurmountable 3-0 series hole.

The Pelicans/Hornets franchise has advanced past the first round only once since moving to New Orleans in 2002, as the Pels knocked out the Mavericks in 2008. Anthony Davis is carrying the torch towards a potential second round appearance for New Orleans after putting together a third straight double-double against Portland. Davis scored 28 points and pulled down 11 rebounds in Thursday’s 119-102 blowout of the Blazers to easily cash as 3 ½-point favorites.

The off-season signing of veteran point guard Rajon Rondo has paid incredible dividends as he put up 16 points and 11 assists in Game 3. Jrue Holiday continues to win the backcourt battle with Portland by registering a +19 rating and scoring 16 points for New Orleans. Alvin Gentry’s squad has shot over 47% from the field in all three wins, including better than 50% in Games 2 and 3.

Damian Lillard’s playoff credentials took another hit as the Blazers’ All-Star guard by hitting only 5-of-14 shots from the floor for 20 points in Game 3. The 20 points was actually a series best for Lillard, but he averaged nearly 27 points per game in the regular season, which isn’t cutting it for Portland. The Blazers fell to 2-15 SU as a road underdog in the playoffs since 2014 with 13 of those defeats by double-digits.

Last season, Portland fell behind Golden State, 3-0 and didn’t bother to show up in Game 4 at home as the Blazers lost to the eventual champion Warriors, 128-103. In the 2017 playoffs, clubs down 3-0 put together a 1-5 record in Game 4 action, but all six teams played at home. In 2015 (the upcoming stat doesn’t bode well for Portland), two road teams looked to avoid the sweep in Game 4 and were wiped out. Washington routed Toronto, 125-94, while Cleveland torched Atlanta, 118-88 as both teams covered with no sweat as a favorite.

Mejia checks in on this potential series-ender in the Big Easy, “Playing with pride is a given from Portland since Lillard and C.J. McCollum are absolutely not quitters, but they’re going to have to make a large volume of 3-pointers late in the shot clock to give the Blazers a chance to get this series back to the Moda Center. New Orleans is pushing tempo at all costs, rendering Jusuf Nurkic as a liability when he’s been so effective down the stretch.

“This is a case of a bad matchup arriving at the worst possible time. We’re going to hear all about Lillard’s ankle and other bangs and bruises that have helped trip up the Trail Blazers all month, but that may not prevent major changes despite a second division title in four years and five straight playoff appearances. That 25-to-1 Exact Game series prop for New Orleans that a few astute bettors are about to hit sounds delightful.”

The Pelicans’ train isn’t slowing down anytime soon, as New Orleans has won and covered eight straight games dating back to April 4. Portland is going the opposite way on the highway by losing six consecutive road contests, while posting a 1-5 ATS record in this stretch.

Western Conference First Round – Game 3- Rockets lead 2-0
Houston at Minnesota (ESPN, 7:35 p.m. ET)

After receiving a slight scare in their Game 1 victory, the Rockets pressed the gas in Game 2 on Wednesday and captured a 102-82 victory over the Timberwolves as 10 ½-point home favorites.

Houston trailed 23-18 after the first quarter but outscored Minnesota by 20 in the second stanza and led 55-40 at halftime. The Timbewolves couldn’t buy a shot (39%) and surprisingly, neither could the Rockets (36.5%). The difference was triples and Houston connected on 16 albeit they took 52 from distance while Minnesota was 5-of-18 (28%) from 3-point land.

Chris Paul led Houston with 27 points and Gerald Green contributed with 21 points of the bench, which was needed with James Harden having a horrible shooting night (2-of-18). Knowing the Rockets still won the game by 20 points and Harden had only 12 points makes you believe this series will end in four games.

The oddsmakers certainly believe so, listing the Rockets as -20000 favorites (Bet $100 to win 50 cents) to win the series while the long shot takeback on the Timberwolves is listed at 30/1 odds (Bet $100 to win $3,000).

For Game 3, Houston opened as a three-point road favorite and the number was quickly pushed up to -5 as was the total from 213 to 214 ½.
Snapping a 13-year playoff drought was expected this season by Minnesota and it achieved that goal but Tom Thibodeau’s team just doesn’t match up well with Houston and that’s clearly evident when you look at their recent head-to-head meetings.

Including this series, the Rockets have won 18 of the past 20 encounters against Minnesota and that includes a 9-1 mark since Tibs arrived. The Wolves did hold a 4-0 ATS run in his rookie coaching campaign but the Rockets have covered five of the six meetings this season

In the two games played at Minnesota this season, Houston earned 129-120 and 126-108 victories as road favorites while the ‘over’ easily cashed in both games.

A lot of the blame for Minnesota in this series has been directed at Karl-Anthony Towns and deservingly so. His plus-minus of -21 was tied for worst on the team and he finished with five points on 2-of-9 shooting. That effort came after scoring just eight points in Game 1 on 3-of-9 shooting.

VegasInsider.com NBA expert Tony Mejia believes the third-year big man out of Kentucky will show up on Saturday evening.

He explained, “An aggressive Karl-Anthony Towns will undoubtedly show up since his ears have undoubtedly been burning over the past week due to how disappointing he’s been. He hadn’t had consecutive games with single-digit shot attempts since back-to-back losses in Atlanta and Toronto to end January and bounced back with a four-game stretch where he made 40 of 56 shots, which included going off for 35 points on the Rockets. He’s more comfortable at home, so at least keep that in mind before pounding the road favorite, which is what human nature is likely telling you to do given how lost the Timberwolves looked in Houston.”

Bettors wavering on the side or total can always invest in Player Props on Towns and not surprisingly his numbers (23 PPG, 12.8 RPG) at home were much more productive in the regular season.

It’s hard to delve into playoff angles for Minnesota since its last trip came in 2004 but the homecourt proved to be valuable as the Wolves went 8-2 SU and 5-5 ATS during that postseason run which ended in a six-game series loss to the L.A. Lakers in the Western Conference Finals.

If you’re looking for an angle to play the Wolves in Game 3, you could point to Houston’s weak playoff record on the road since Harden arrived in the 2012-13 season. The Rockets are 6-16 SU and 11-10-1 ATS as visitors. They’ve only been listed as favorites twice during this span and they’ve gone 1-1 SU and 0-2 ATS while the ‘over’ was 2-0 in those games.

As mentioned above, the total has been moving up and we’ve got a Best Bet featured on Game 3.

Game 4 will take place at the Target Center on Monday.

Western Conference First Round – Game 3 - Series tied 1-1
Oklahoma City at Utah (ESPN, 10:05 p.m. ET)

The 4-5 matchup in the Western Conference was expected to be the tightest first round series and the opening two games have lived up to that billing. Oklahoma City captured Game 1 116-108 last Sunday and Utah rebounded this past Wednesday with a 102-95 victory in Game 2 while cashing as a three-point road underdog.

Utah rookie Donovan Mitchell continued to build his resume by dropping 28 points on Wednesday and 13 of them came in the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, Oklahoma City’s “Big Three” of Russell Westbrook, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony went a combined 0-of-14 in the final 12 minutes as the Thunder were outscored 28-16 by the Jazz.

Both the Jazz (41.7%, 31%, 79%) and Thunder (40%, 31%, 67%) struggled shooting from the field, 3-point land and the free throw stripe. Outside of OKC scoring 33 point in the third quarter, neither team had much rhythm as the ‘under’ (208 ½) connected.

The key for OKC is Westbrook and Mejia is hesitant to back last year’s regular season MVP when you delve into his current form.

“Russell Westbrook is shooting less than 39 percent in the series and again faded down the stretch, so this shooting slump he’s been mired in over the past five games is threatening to be a season-killer. He’s shot just under 35 percent in splitting his last four meetings in Salt Lake City since Kevin Durant left town, so recent history doesn’t bode well for a resurgence,” stated Mejia.

He added, “Unless he figures out how to beat a great Jazz defense without the benefit of a jumper that can no longer be relied upon, Utah is in position to take control of the series. Finishing with 13 assists and just three turnovers in Game 2 is a positive sign since the Thunder are going to lose unless he can get both Paul George and Carmelo Anthony going after they posted a bagel in Wednesday’s fourth quarter.”

For Game 3, oddsmakers opened Utah as a 4 ½-point home favorite with a total of 207 and both numbers have held steady.

The Jazz closed the season 15-5 at Vivint Smart Home Arena but they weren’t profitable (9-11 ATS) at the betting counter. Plus, only seven of those games came against playoff teams and they were a pedestrian 4-3 versus the tougher competition.

The Thunder weren’t a great road team (21-20 SU, 17-23-1 ATS) by any means but it went 8-4 in the second-half of the season and two of the losses came by less than four points. As a road ‘dog, OKC went 6-5 and the point-spread never mattered which could make you believe the money-line (+170) is the better option in Game 3.

Oklahoma City certainly has different faces on this year’s squad but it enters Saturday’s matchup with a six-game road losing skid in the playoffs. On the side of the court, Utah hasn’t been much better. In last year’s postseason, Utah went 1-4 both SU and ATS at home.

The series price opened OKC (-135) Utah (+115) and those odds have flip-flopped to Utah (-135) OKC (+115) after the split.

The pair will meet again Monday in Game 4 from Salt Lake City.

Preview: 76ers at Heat
Gracenote
Apr 20, 2018

Philadelphia 76ers All-Star center Joel Embiid returned with a vengeance from an orbital fracture and is intent on making things painful for the Miami Heat. Embiid and the third-seeded 76ers look to take a 3-1 lead in the Eastern Conference first-round series on Saturday in Miami.

Embiid had 23 points, seven rebounds and four assists in Thursday's 128-108 trouncing of the Heat after missing the previous 10 games, including the first two of the playoff series. "I am proud of what he did on the court and the professionalism he showed," 76ers coach Brett Brown said of Embiid, who also knocked down three 3-point baskets. The sixth-seeded Heat had few answers on how to defend Embiid and coach Erik Spoelstra is aghast over the high number of points allowed (an average of 129) in his team's two losses in the series. "It's clear the first game and the third game were played on their terms," Spolestra told reporters. "We do not want this to be a crawl. Not that's how we play either, but we certainly don't want these crawling into 130s. That's definitely in their wheelhouse and we paid the price for that."

TV: 2:30 p.m. ET, TNT, NBCS Philadelphia, FS Sun (Miami)

ABOUT THE 76ERS: Embiid is adjusting to wearing a mask to protect the healing eye bone and understands he will be sporting it for at least the rest of this series. "It was annoying," Embiid told reporters. "But that was the only way I could play in this game, if I wore the mask and protected my face with goggles. I had to work through it and I did." Philadelphia is also receiving superb contributions from backup shooting guard Marco Belinelli, who had 21 points in Game 3 and is averaging 20.7 in the series.

ABOUT THE HEAT: Center Hassan Whiteside has been a complete nonfactor in the series with averages of 13.3 minutes, 3.7 points and four rebounds. Whiteside accumulated four fouls in just 13 minutes of action in Game 3 and again drew criticism for his latest subpar effort, and Spoelstra said getting him back on track for Game 4 is a huge priority. "He might not necessarily put up the numbers, but it's part of my job to figure it out and figure out how he can get to his strengths and be an impact player for us," Spoelstra told reporters. "It starts with the defense, the rebounding. It's a lot of responsibilities for us offensively. I'll spend some time working that out."

BUZZER BEATERS

1. Sixers PF Dario Saric has scored at least 20 in all three games and made 11-of-23 3-point attempts while averaging 21.3 points.

2. Miami PG Goran Dragic tallied 23 points in Game 3 for his second straight 20-point effort.

3. Philadelphia rookie PG Ben Simmons is averaging 20 points, 10 rebounds, 9.7 assists and two steals during the series.

PREDICTION: Heat 109, 76ers 105

Preview: Trail Blazers at Pelicans
Gracenote
Apr 20, 2018

Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans are one victory away from completing a stunning yet dominating four-game sweep. The sixth-seeded Pelicans look to finish off their demolition of the third-seeded Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday when the Western Conference first-round series resumes in New Orleans.

New Orleans dismantled the Trail Blazers in Game 3 and led by as many as 33 points in the convincing 119-102 victory. Coach Alvin Gentry and veteran point guard Rajon Rondo both emphasized that the Pelicans need to close it out in Game 4 as the franchise looks to reach the second round for the first time since 2008. Portland seemingly has no answers on how to stop New Orleans and is focused on avoiding the sweep and then letting things play out. "We've got to figure it out," shooting guard CJ McCollum told reporters. "Dig deep, understand that it still can be a long series if we can get a win here and get back home."

TV: 5 p.m. ET, TNT, NBCS Northwest (Portland), FS New Orleans

ABOUT THE TRAIL BLAZERS: The guard-oriented offense isn't working well with star Damian Lillard struggling and McCollum's 9-of-16 shooting in Game 3 representing his best effort of the series. McCollum scored 22 points in Game 3 and is averaging 21 in the series, while Lillard scored a series-high 20 in Game 3 but is a dismal 18-of-55 shooting through three games. "As much as they've played well and we haven't, three games to zero, that doesn't mean that it's over with," Lillard insisted to reporters on Friday. "That don't mean that we walk around here defeated. We just gotta get one. The series can change after one game, especially going back home."

ABOUT THE PELICANS: Forward Nikola Mirotic is enjoying a superb series and is averaging 21 points after exploding for 30 points on 12-of-15 shooting in Game 3. Mirotic has made 11 3-pointers while averaging nine rebounds, 2.3 blocked shots and 1.7 steals in the series and the Trail Blazers seem to have no answer on how to handle the trio of Davis, guard Jrue Holiday and Mirotic, who was acquired from the Chicago Bulls at the end of January after DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) was lost for the season. "I knew I was capable to have games like this, but I never want to force any shots and always want to play simple, play for my teammates the same way they play for me," Mirotic told reporters after Game 3. "I just want to show them they were right to bring me here."

BUZZER BEATERS

1. Davis is averaging 28.3 points, 12.3 rebounds, 2.7 blocks and 2.3 steals in the series.

2. Portland swingman Evan Turner (toe) is questionable after missing Game 4.

3. New Orleans recorded 16 steals while forcing 24 turnovers in Game 3.

PREDICTION: Pelicans 115, Trail Blazers 110

Preview: Rockets at Timberwolves
Gracenote
Apr 20, 2018

Houston Rockets guard James Harden is likely to take home his first NBA MVP trophy this season and is the best player on the team with the best record in the league, but he is not the whole team. The Rockets will take any offense they can get from Harden when they try to push their lead in the best-of-seven first-round series to 3-0 when they visit the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday.

Harden went 2-of-18 from the floor in Game 2 but Houston still managed to post a 102-82 win as the NBA's leading scorer in the regular season (30.4) turned it up on the defensive end. "I'm more happy than anybody right now, believe it or not, just because I'm not really worried about my shot," Harden told reporters. "I had those same shots in Game 1, and they went in. In Game 3, I'll shoot those same shots. ... I just tried to make an impact on the game in other ways, not just offensively. Happy we got the win." Minnesota is struggling to get All-Star Karl-Anthony Towns involved in the offense, and the center totaled 13 points on 5-of-18 shooting in the first two games after averaging 21.3 points during the regular season. "You want to win badly but you dwell too much on the past, you forget that you've got to take care of the present," Towns told reporters. "You've got to move on. We came in, we had a great practice, great focus, great concentration. I think we're ready to go tomorrow."

TV: 7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN, AT&T SportsNet Southwest (Houston), FS North (Minnesota)

ABOUT THE ROCKETS: Houston's supporting cast stepped up to help Harden on Wednesday, with Houston native Gerald Green coming off the bench for 21 points and Trevor Ariza adding 15. "I know how hard they work," Harden told reporters of his teammates. "It might not go good all the time just because me and Chris (Paul) dominate the ball a lot. ... When I have bad shooting nights and they back me up, that's what it's about. I'm proud of those guys and they continue to work. They continue to focus on the right things to do and great things always happen when you have that mindset." Paul added 27 points and eight assists in Game 2.

ABOUT THE TIMBERWOLVES: Minnesota remains confident despite being in an 0-2 hole and is excited to play the franchise's first home playoff game since Game 5 of the Western Conference finals in 2004. "It feels good," Timberwolves swingman Andrew Wiggins told reporters after Friday's practice. "Houston took care of business up there and now we’ve got to do the same up here. I know the fans will be excited, the atmosphere will be crazy and the whole team, we're confident. We're ready." Wiggins led Minnesota's starters and was one of only three players on the team to score in double figures with 13 points in Game 2.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. The Rockets are shooting 29.2 percent from 3-point range in the series.

2. Minnesota SF Nemanja Bjelica scored a team-high 16 points in Wednesday's Game 2 after going scoreless in Game 1.

3. Houston SG Eric Gordon is 6-of-23 from the floor in the series, including 3-of-17 from 3-point range.

PREDICTION: Rockets 106, Timberwolves 104

Preview: Thunder at Jazz
Gracenote
Apr 21, 2018

The Utah Jazz took homecourt advantage behind rookie star Donovan Mitchell with a win at Oklahoma City in Game 2. The Jazz will try to hold onto that advantage when they host the Thunder in Game 3 of the best-of-seven Western Conference first-round series on Saturday.

Utah dropped Game 1 and fell behind in Game 2 before outscoring Oklahoma City 28-16 in the fourth quarter to steal a 102-95 victory. "As much as anything, I think our team stayed together," Jazz coach Quin Snyder told reporters. "There was a determination, and we felt like we just needed to rely on our defense - and that's what we did. Obviously, Donovan's aggressiveness on the offensive end fueled us there." The veteran Thunder aren't panicking after one loss and understand the ebbs and flows of a playoff series. “It’s all about kind of just understanding the situation that we’re in," Oklahoma City forward Carmelo Anthony told reporters. "In the playoffs, in these types of situations where you win one, you lose one, I’ve seen times where people just panic and start overthinking and things like that. When I go back and look at the game and recap and watch the film, Utah did a great job in Game 2, but I think we beat ourselves by not doing the small things."

TV: 10 p.m. ET, ESPN, FS Oklahoma, AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain (Utah)

ABOUT THE THUNDER: Anthony is off to a slow start in his first playoff series with Oklahoma City and is 11-of-31 from the floor through two games. "There’s things that we can correct, things that we have to correct, things that we will correct," Anthony said. " On to the next game. We threw the first punch, they punched us back tonight and now we have to go on the road and get a win at their place. That’s the mindset." Small forward Paul George, who dubbed himself "Playoff P," went 6-of-21 from the field in the loss.

ABOUT THE JAZZ: Mitchell got some help in Game 2 from backcourt mate Ricky Rubio, who collected 22 points, nine assists and seven rebounds after struggling to 5-of-18 from the floor in Game 1. "I was looking for my shot too much," Rubio told reporters after the win. "In Game 1, I was over-aggressive. I didn’t look to get my teammates involved. Tonight, I did a better job of looking for my teammates and I took shots when they were open. I had to remember that we play as a team, and that was our strength." The backcourt production was matched up front by Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors, who combined for 33 points and 31 rebounds.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. Mitchell's 55 points are the most for a rookie for a rookie guard in his first two playoff games, surpassing the 53 points scored by Michael Jordan.

2. Oklahoma City PG Russell Westbrook recorded a double-double in each of the first two games.

3. Utah PF Jonas Jerebko scored 10 points on 5-of-9 shooting in Game 2 after going scoreless in Game 1.

PREDICTION: Jazz 113, Thunder 102
