Dallas Mavericks vs. Utah Jazz NBA Pick Prediction 8/10/2020
Mavericks vs Jazz—NBA pick is Utah Jazz +2.5. Dallas is locked as the seventh seed in the western conference. They just came off an overtime win against Milwaukee that saw heavy minutes for Kristaps Porzingis and Luca Doncic. Each logged in over forty minutes. They did miss a lot of shots. Must believe minutes are reduced in this spot with the playoffs so close and each player has a history of injury. In the bubble the Mavericks are shooting only 42.4% with 31.5% from three with poor defense surrendering 47.9% and 38.2% from beyond the arc. Play Utah +2.5.
Denver Nuggets vs. LA Lakers NBA Pick Prediction 8/10/2020
Nuggets vs. Lakers—NBA Free picks Denver Nuggets +5.5. Lakers have clinched the top seed in the Western conference so there is no motivation to go heavy minutes with starters in this spot. There are just two games left in the regular season so why all the media drama over their recent play. They have lost and failed to cover three straight, but won the game they had too in their bubble restart to the LA Clippers. LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Kyle Kuzma have dealt with injuries this season so no reason to risk it this close to the playoffs. Denver keep in the three seed they can avoid Houston or Oklahoma City in the first round. Play Denver +5.5.
