Toronto Raptors vs. Boston Celtics NBA Pick Prediction 9/5/2020
Raptors vs. Celtics—NBA pick is Boston Celtics +1.5. Celtics have covered every game in this series and six of seven in the playoffs. It was a one point loss in Game 3 for Boston yet they shot well hitting on 47%. Celtics shot well from three in the first two of this series and tailed off in Game 3. Toronto still shot the three below average. Raptors offensive production is way below their average of 113 points per game they have culminated this year. Celtics fourth in field goal and second best in two point defense this year. Rather take the points here with a mentally tough Celtics team who can bounce back from a buzzer beater. Play Boston +1.5.
Denver Nuggets vs. LA Clippers NBA Pick Prediction 9/5/2020
Nuggets vs. Clippers—NBA free pick is LA Clippers -8.5. Patrick Beverly returns to the lineup and the Clips put up a strong defensive performance holding the Nuggets to 42.2% shooting and 25% from three. Now the Clippers full depth is on display with their talented guard back. The fatigue of a seven game series in the opening round is hanging over Denver now as the Clippers three days off between series is impactful early in this series. With their depth and energy the Clips are getting good looks. Denver defended poor in the playoffs allowing 122.5 points per 100 possessions. Play Clippers -8.5.
