Free NBA Picks For Today 9/9/2020
Toronto Raptors vs. Boston Celtics NBA Pick Prediction 9/9/2020
Raptors vs. Celtics—NBA pick is Boston Celtics -3. Boston looking for the closeout after their 22 point win in Game 5. Toronto continues to fall way below their season average in scoring as they were held to a series low 89 points in the loss. The one constant in this series is the fact that the Celtics defense has showed up for every game of this series. Boston shoots 49% in the critical Game 5 while the Raptors shoot only 39%. Boston depth will be key late in this series. Play Celtics -3.
LA Clippers vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Pick Prediction 9/9/2020
Clippers vs. Nuggets—NBA free pick is Denver Nuggets +8. Tough to lay a lot of points with this Clippers team as they don’t go hard for 48 minutes. They were down seven with eight minutes left in their Game 3 win. Nuggets did shoot 47% on Monday despite a 5 of 17 shooting night by Jamal Murry and 5 of 14 from Jerami Grant. Clippers defense has not been tight in the playoffs as witnessed in the Mavericks opening round series. Nuggets are fourth best in offensive efficiency during the playoffs averaging 115.2 points per 100 possession. Would rather take points here with Denver coming off a loss. Play Nuggets +8.
