Orlando Magic vs. Toronto Raptors Preview and Predictions 04-23-2019 in NBA

The Toronto Raptors attempt to close out their Eastern Conference first-round series with Orlando on Tuesday when they host the Magic in Game 5. Orlando pulled off a stunning upset in Game 1 before the Raptors rolled off three straight victories, the last two on the road.

Second-seeded Toronto rolled to a solid 107-85 victory in Game 4 on Sunday with All-Star small forward Kawhi Leonard leading the assault with 34 points for his second 30-point effort of the series. "Road wins are the best, especially in the playoffs," Leonard told reporters afterward. "We all know the job isn't done yet." The seventh-seeded Magic have dropped games by 29 and 22 points in the series and are refusing to believe that they can't still make it a competitive matchup. "We're going to go to Toronto and, obviously, look for a win," Orlando power forward Aaron Gordon told reporters. "We've shown that we can win there before and that's what we're going to do. That's the idea, go out there and fight - definitely fight - and potentially get back (to Orlando for a Game 6). We get a win out there, then the series is up for grabs."

TV: 7 p.m. ET, NBATV, FS Florida (Orlando), TSN (Toronto)

ABOUT THE MAGIC: Orlando felt it could give the Raptors a strong battle after splitting the first two games in Toronto but it returns across the border with its season on the line. "We've got to regroup," swingman Terrence Ross told reporters. "We've got to do it fast and we've got to watch film and understand better what we need to do. We've got a way to play and I just think we've got to figure that out. They're throwing all sorts of coverages at us and we've got to figure something out." Ross was one of the struggling players in Game 4 as he scored just five points in 31 minutes after averaging 19.5 points over the previous two games.

ABOUT THE RAPTORS: Leonard is averaging 28 points in the series with a high of 37 and he said after Game 4 he is enjoying being back in the playoffs after missing the postseason last season while injured with the San Antonio Spurs. "You just want to be out there on the floor, with your teammates and just feel that team spirit and chemistry, just trying to focus on one goal," Leonard told reporters. "That's something I was missing, just being out, sitting out. That's why it's a blessing this year just to be able to play and be on the floor, regardless of what the outcome is." Power forward Pascal Siakam is averaging 22.3 points and nine rebounds in the series but had his quietest outing of 16 points and six rebounds in Game 4.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. The Magic are averaging just 86.7 points during their three straight setbacks, scoring 85 or fewer points in two of the losses.

2. Toronto PG Kyle Lowry is just 15-of-38 shooting in the series while averaging 10.5 points.

3. Gordon scored 25 points on 10-of-17 shooting in Game 4 for his second 20-point outing of the series.

PREDICTION: Raptors 118, Magic 95

Brooklyn Nets vs. Philadelphia 76ers Preview and Predictions 04-23-2019 in NBA

A painful home loss has the Brooklyn Nets on the brink of elimination but they're not ready to give in entering Game 5 of the Eastern Conference first-round series Tuesday at the Philadelphia 76ers. "We were right there," guard Spencer Dinwiddie told reporters after Saturday's 104-101 loss put the Sixers up 3-1. "We feel like we should've won. We weren't saying this was a learning experience when we won Game 1. So we can't fall back on that now. We need to try to pull off something incredible."

To do so, sixth-seeded Brooklyn will need to keep its emotions in check following a contest that saw multiple ejections after a scrum along the baseline. All-Star center Joel Embiid, whose flagrant foul on Nets big man Jarrett Allen touched off the pushing and shoving, led the way for No. 3 seed Philadelphia with 31 points, 16 rebounds, seven assists and six blocked shots after sitting out Game 3 with a knee issue. "Look at the magnitude of what the numbers say," Sixers coach Brett Brown told reporters after the contest. "He was dominant. He was dominant." Embiid has two flagrant fouls in the playoffs, two shy of earning himself a one-game suspension.

TV: 8 p.m. ET, TNT, NBCS Philadelphia

ABOUT THE NETS: The backcourt duo of Caris LeVert and D'Angelo Russell combined for 46 points in Game 4 while Allen had his best game of the series with 21 points and eight boards, but the Nets are still trying to get 3-point specialist Joe Harris going. Harris missed all six of his long-range attempts in the Game 4 loss and is 0-for-12 in the three straight defeats after making 3-of-4 in the victory in Game 1. "Joe's the best 3-point shooter in the league, so we're going to have the utmost confidence in him to hit," Dinwiddie told reporters. "He's played, what, 75 games, 80 games this year and been the best 3-point shooter in the league. We're not going to give up on him now because of three playoffs games: That's not going to happen."

ABOUT THE 76ERS: Embiid missed 14 of the final 24 regular-season games, was limited to an average of 22.5 minutes through the first two games of the series and missed Game 3, so there is the chance that the team could choose to rest him Tuesday with a 3-1 series advantage. Guard Ben Simmons carried the team without Embiid in Game 3 with 31 points and nine assists, and forward Tobias Harris has been a force as the series has dragged on. After scoring four points in the Game 1 loss, Harris is averaging 24 points to go along with 9.7 rebounds in the three straight wins.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. Nets PF Ed Davis (ankle) missed Game 4 and his status is uncertain for Tuesday.

2. Brooklyn SF Jared Dudley was fined $25,000 and Sixers SG Jimmy Butler was fined $15,000 for their roles in the altercation in Game 4. Nets general manager Sean Marks was suspended a game without pay and fined $25,000 for entering the referees' locker room after Game 4.

3. LeVert is averaging 21.8 points in the series while making 11-of-23 3-pointers.

PREDICTION: 76ers 111, Nets 105

San Antonio Spurs vs. Denver Nuggets Preview and Predictions 04-23-2019 in NBA

The Denver Nuggets look to follow up a strong performance when they host the San Antonio Spurs in Game 5 of the Western Conference first-round series on Tuesday. The second-seeded Nuggets forged a 2-2 tie in the matchup when they made 15 3-pointers in Saturday's 117-103 road win over the Spurs.

All-Star center Nikola Jokic had 29 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists in Game 4 and point guard Jamal Murray was in solid form with 24 points and six assists. "This was a collective effort," Murray told reporters after the victory. "We all believed in each other and know what we're capable of doing." The seventh-seeded Spurs led by 12 points after the opening stanza before being outscored 95-69 the rest of the way in a highly disappointing showing. "Overall, the Nuggets competed, and we did not," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich told reporters. "Their physicality was obvious from the get-go. We knew that was gonna happen, and we did not respond."

TV: 9:30 p.m. ET, NBATV, FS Southwest (San Antonio), Altitude (Denver)

ABOUT THE SPURS: Point guard Derrick White had his first subpar outing of the series in Game 4 as he scored just eight points on 3-of-8 shooting after averaging 23 points on 29-of-42 over the first three contests. White had a career-best outing in Game 3 when he scored 36 points on 15-of-21 shooting but he was outplayed by Murray in Game 4 while key bench performers Rudy Gay (two points on 0-of-7 shooting) and Marco Belinelli (three points, 1-of-5) also contributed little. Power forward LaMarcus Aldridge had 24 points and nine rebounds while shooting guard DeMar DeRozan scored 19 points before being ejected with 5:01 remaining in the contest.

ABOUT THE NUGGETS: Coach Michael Malone inserted forward Torrey Craig into the lineup in place of struggling Will Barton and the move paid dividends as Craig knocked down five 3-pointers while recording 18 points and eight rebounds. "Now, he's not just a one-trick pony," Malone said of Craig after Game 4. "He finishes, he rebounds, he defends and obviously, he can make the 3-point shot. His confidence in shooting that ball is very high and obviously allowing him to shoot it." Barton scored 12 points off the bench and hit all three of his 3-point attempts after going 1-of-13 over the first three games.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. DeRozan was fined $25,000 for "recklessly throwing the basketball" in the direction of official Scott Foster in the fourth quarter of Game 4 -- the act that got him ejected.

2. Murray is averaging 24 points on 16-of-31 shooting in Denver's two victories, and averaging 11.5 on 10-of-29 shooting in its two setbacks.

3. Gay is just 4-of-24 from the floor over the past three contests after being 6-of-9 in Game 1.

PREDICTION: Nuggets 107, Spurs 105

Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Portland Trail Blazers Preview and Predictions 04-23-2019 in NBA

The Portland Trail Blazers are on the verge of reaching the Western Conference semifinals after taking a 3-1 series lead over the sixth-seeded Oklahoma City Thunder and can clinch the series when they host Game 5 on Tuesday. The Trail Blazers dropped Game 3 in Oklahoma City but rebounded with a 111-98 triumph in Game 4 as CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard continued to control the game from the backcourt.

Lillard and McCollum combined for 51 points and 11 assists in Game 4 - 34 points more than the Thunder starting backcourt - and tried to maintain a business-like approach despite the hostile surroundings. "We are going to play hard, stay together," Lillard told reporters. "Whenever the crowd gets into it, we are just going to keep doing what we do and come out on top. I was proud that we were able to stick to that and get done but a lot of that is because of what we have been through during the regular season and how we came together." Oklahoma City shot 37.5 percent from the floor on Sunday and is looking for more out of the complimentary players. "We've got to move the ball," backup point guard Dennis Schroder told reporters. "...They're doing a great job playing (All-Stars Russell Westbrook and Paul George), but I think the other guys who were on the floor got to be aggressive, got to get the ball, make a play for somebody else or finish."

TV: 10:30 p.m. ET, TNT, FS Oklahoma, NBCS Northwest (Portland)

ABOUT THE THUNDER: Westbrook was 5-of-21 from the floor in Game 4, including 0-of-10 in the second half, while George struggled to 8-of-21. "They just packed the paint," George told reporters of the Portland defense. "That's how every team tries to guard us, load up on us. We'll get in the flow. We'll get in the rhythm. The ball will find its way. We just have to keep at it." Westbrook carried the load with 33 points on 11-of-22 shooting in Game 3 but is 18-of-58 from the floor, including 3-of-17 from 3-point range, in the three losses in the series.

ABOUT THE TRAIL BLAZERS: Portland got a boost from up front in Game 4 as Maurice Harkless delivered a double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds and Al-Farouq Aminu turned in his best game of the series with 19 points, nine rebounds and four 3-pointers. "Sometimes (Aminu) scores, sometimes he doesn't, but he gives a great effort every night," Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts told reporters. "We ask him to do a lot of things at the defensive end, to rebound. He's probably a better shooter than most people give him credit for, and he's been an important part of our team since he's been here." Aminu averaged 8.3 points in the first three games of the series and 9.4 during the regular season.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. McCollum is 10-of-17 from 3-point range in the last two games.

2. Oklahoma City C Steven Adams was held to six points on Sunday - his first single-digit effort of the series.

3. Portland last reached the Conference semifinals in 2016, when they fell 4-1 to the Golden State Warriors.

PREDICTION: Trail Blazers 106, Thunder 102

Tuesday's Playoff Tips
Chris David

Tuesday’s playoff slate is loaded with four games and the first two contests in the Eastern Conference look like formalities for both Toronto and Philadelphia. Oddsmakers at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook opened up series prices on Monday for the conference semifinals even though the matchups haven’t even been officially determined.

Milwaukee -250 vs. Boston +200
Toronto -220 vs. Philadelphia +180

That’s the quartet that everybody wanted to see in the East and we should get there soon enough. For those believing that the Magic and Nets can win three straight games, then feel free to take a shot at 50/1 and 21/1 odds respectively on either long shot.

With the help of NBA expert Tony Mejia, let’s handicap the card.

Eastern Conference Game 5 (Raptors lead 3-1)

Orlando at Toronto (NBATV, 7:05 p.m. ET)

After losing a 104-101 decision in Game 1 on Apr. 13, the Raptors have won three straight games against the Magic and now own a commanding 3-1 lseries ead. While Toronto was given a bit of a scare in its 98-93 win in Game 3 at Orlando last Friday, it’s 107-85 victory in Game 4 on Sunday was a wire-to-wire outcome. The Raptors hit 53 percent from the field and the Magic struggled again overall (42%) and from 3-point land (21%). Orlando has actually done a decent job defensively in this series on Toronto but its offense is the issue and that’s not a surprise as they entered the playoffs averaging 106.6 points per game, the lowest among the 16 playoff teams.

Fast forward to Game 5 and the oddsmakers opened Toronto as an 11-point home favorite. The Raptors closed -9 ½ in the series opener from Canada and -11 in Game 2, and they evened up the series in that contest with a 111-82 win. Toronto is a 1/9 favorite (Bet $100 to win $11) to close the series out and that seems very likely.

Laying the points on Tuesday is a different discussion and it looks like a toss-up when you realize that Toronto went 14-1 straight up and 7-8-1 against the spread as a double-digit home favorite in the regular season. The lone setback came to Charlotte, which ended a buzzer-beater heave by the Hornets from half-court.

As a home favorite in the playoffs since 2014, Toronto has gone 14-10 but it’s burned bettors with an 8-15-1 record versus the number. During this span, the Raptors have won four series and the average margin in those close-out games was 10 points (99-89).

For what it’s worth, Orlando has gone 1-4 SU and 3-1-1 ATS this season when listed as a double-digit underdog and that includes the Game 2 loss in this series.


Eastern Conference Game 5 (76ers lead 3-1)

Brooklyn at Philadelphia (TNT, 8:05 p.m. ET)

This series parallels the one above as the Nets won Game 1 in Philadelphia before the 76ers woke up and rattled off three straight games to push Brooklyn to the brink of elimination. Just like the Raptors, Philadelphia got tested once on the road and posted a pair of double-digit results in the other games.

Saturday’s outcome was the tightest of this series and clearly the most heated as Philadelphia captured a 112-108 road win over Brooklyn and it managed to cover (-3 ½) at the end with a pair of free throws. The Nets have shown that they can compete with the star-power of the Sixers and they held a six-point lead (91-85) entering the final quarter. As we’ve seen many times this season, Brooklyn shot itself out of the game with a 5-of-19 shooting performance in the final 12 minutes and they turned the ball over six times as well. All-Star D’Angelo Russell had his worst shooting game of the series and if he doesn’t show up, the Nets are very limited.

Philadelphia opened as an eight-point favorite for Game 5, which is in the same neighborhood as Game 1 (-7 ½) and Game 2 (-8 ½). The money-line on the 76ers is minus-400 (Bet $100 to win $25) while the takeback on the Nets is hovering around 3/1 odds.

Going back the past three seasons, the Nets are just 3-5 in their last eight visits to Philadelphia but they have turned a slight profit (4-3-1 ATS) and the offense has come to play. Outside of a 95-point clunker in the 2018 regular season, Brooklyn has averaged 119 PPG in its other seven games at Philadelphia.

I do believe the series will end on Tuesday but the Nets will certainly go down firing and a Team Total (111) lean to the ‘over’ seems doable. My only hesitation with taking the points in Game 5 is because of what we’ve seen from Philadelphia at home in the playoffs. Since last season, the club has covered all four of its wins and the average outcome came by 18.3 PPG and that includes the Game 2 shellacking (145-123) in this series.


Western Conference Game 5 (Series tied 2-2)

San Antonio at Denver (NBATV, 9:30 p.m. ET)

Of the eight opening matchups, this has been the only competitive series and the Nuggets will have a chance to go up 3-2 on the Spurs at home this Tuesday from the Pepsi Center. Denver, the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference, has looked dead in the water a couple of times but it managed to stay the course and it showed up in a big way last Saturday.

Trailing 2-1 after three games, Mike Malone’s team captured a 117-103 win in Game 4 as a 3 ½-point road underdog. The club finally connected from 3-point land (15-of-31) and they went 22-of-24 (92%) from the free-throw line. All-Star Nikola Jokic dominated the paint with 29 points and 12 rebounds while Jamal Murray added 24 points. The victory snapped a 15-game losing streak at San Antonio, which went back to the 2012 regular season.

NBA expert Tony Mejia provided his thoughts on the series and what to expect in Game 5. He said, “The Nuggets scored 117 points in Game 4 after the Spurs put up a series-high 118 in Game 3, so it’s clear both teams have gotten comfortable with the way their opponents are defending. The playoffs are about talent first and foremost, but if teams are evenly matched, strategical adjustments take over. It’s up to Gregg Popovich and his staff to find a way to win what now becomes a best-of-three without homecourt advantage. San Antonio saw its home winning streak against the Nuggets snapped by Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray, who each got comfortable in helping pull off Saturday afternoon’s upset.”

Stealing another win won’t be easy at Denver, who owned the best regular season record at home (34-7 SU, 25-16 ATS). Despite taking Game 1, San Antonio’s road mark (16-25 SU, 29-20-2 ATS) was nothing to be proud of this season.

“The Spurs have to find a way to bother one of them in order to steal one in Denver in order to get out of this series and it’s worth knowing that since he didn’t coach in last year’s Game 5 loss to Golden State in which they were eliminated, Gregg Popovich has won nine of the last 10 Game 5s in which he’s appeared in dating back to their run to the 2013 NBA Finals. Michael Malone is coaching in his first game this deep into a series in the head seat, but does have experience as an assistant with the Cavs, Hornets and Warriors. That stat alone should be worth a few points for the visitors,” added Mejia.

The line for Game 1 was Denver -5 ½ and Game 2 closed -7 with the assumption that the Nuggets wouldn’t fall into a 2-0 deficit. For Tuesday’s game, Denver is back to -5 ½ and the key to this matchup will be San Antonio’s defense and the unit has struggled on the road (114 PPG) all season. In wins, they held teams to 104.8 PPG and gave up 117.4 in losses. As Mejia mentioned, Denver’s offense is clicking right now and the basket has always looked bigger (114.1 PPG) for its offense at home.

The books have cleaned up on the total in this series as bettors have leaned heavily to the ‘under’ in each of the first four games. The low side cashed in the opener but the ‘over’ has now hit in the last three games. The total for Game 5 opened 212 and has dipped slightly to 211 ½.

The updated series price has Denver (-185) slightly favored over San Antonio (+160) in what’s now a best-of-three battle.

Game 6 will take place on Thursday from the AT&T Center.


Western Conference Game 5 (Trail Blazers lead 3-1)

Oklahoma City at Portland (TNT, 10:35 p.m. ET)

The fourth and final Game 5 matchup on Tuesday is expected to be the tightest and it’s the most intriguing as Portland can send Oklahoma City packing and that would be the third straight season that the Thunder get ousted in the first round. According to Mejia, OKC’s inability to shoot consistently or change its style has been key in this series.

“Apparently a lot of people are just noticing that Russell Westbrook no longer shoots the ball well. It may have been glossed over by all the triple-doubles, but he’s had his share of terrible runs like the one he’s on and has been an inefficient 3-point shooter all season. Shooting 34 percent from beyond the arc in March marked his best month by far, so maybe he had high hopes that he’d be able to hang with Damian Lillard from the perimeter, but that group of people I was alluding to earlier includes Westbrook, who is apparently delusional,” said Mejia.

The Thunder have been held under 100 points in all three of their losses in this series and event though Westbrook is averaging 21.3 PPG, 9.8 assists and 8.3 rebounds, he’s shooting 36.3 percent from the field.

Mejia added, “Enes Kanter and Al Farouq Aminu shouldn’t be keeping Westbrook from getting into the paint and collapsing the defense. He’s 3-for-17 from 3-point range in OKC’s losses and 4-for-6 in the lone victory, but It’s not worth it for him to continue exploring whether he can find the range. This visit to Portland, where he shot 1-for-10 in the first two games, must see him attack the paint and leave the 3-ball for those who can better do it. Paul George has gotten to the line 31 times over the past two games and has the right idea, because it’s going to take a parade to the free-throw line and improved perimeter defense to win three consecutive games in this series.”

George is averaging 28.6 PPG and 8.5 RPG in the series but he’s the best 3-point shooter on Oklahoma City and he’s only hitting 30.8 percent in this series. Can the Thunder flip the switch and find their shot like they did in the second-half of Game 3 or is this series done?

“With Westbrook having scored just one point on 0-for-7 shooting in the second half of Game 4, the Thunder’s stock can’t get any lower, but I wouldn’t count them out just yet. For simply the value of it, if you plan on riding Westbrook to find a tweak that will allow the Thunder to get back home for a Game 6, you may as well throw a few bucks on them winning the series since a return of +450 (Westgate) or more elsewhere provides a great return you wouldn’t have expected to have seen with a team that entered as the series favorite. If Westbrook stops giving the Blazers defense exactly what they want by settling for jumpers, Oklahoma City is capable of coming back,” Mejia explained his handicap for a series bet.

For Tuesday’s game, Portland is a 3 ½-point home favorite and the money-line is -160 on the Trail Blazers while OKC can receive 7/5 odds (Bet $100 to win $140) to stay alive. Knowing OKC will be favored in Game 6 if it wins and likely be a shorter ‘dog in Game 7, taking the 9/2 odds on the series is definitely worth a shot if you're leaning to the vistior in Game 5.

The ‘under’ has gone 3-1 in the first four games and the Game 5 number opened 220 and has dropped as low as 218 ½ as of Monday night.

If necessary, Game 6 will take place on Thursday from OKC and a possible Game 7 would be in Portland on Saturday.
