Free NBA Picks For Today 5/26/2021
Washington Wizards vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Pick Prediction 5/26/2021
Wizards at 76ers—NBA pick is Washington Wizards +8.5. Wizards have covered 15 of their past 21 games with two pushes with their cover in defeat in the opener of this series. Wizards in defeat were able to shoot 56% from the floor along with 8 of 20 from three. Free throw disparity was a bit too much to overcome but that may change down 0-1 in this series. These two teams have played at the fastest pace in the playoffs and that is OK for the style that the Wizards incorporate behind Beal and Westbrook. With this line all the Wizards must be is competitive. Play Washington +8.5.
Atlanta Hawks vs. New York Knicks NBA Pick Prediction 5/26/2021
Hawks at Knicks—NBA free pick is New York Knicks -2. Knicks had a poor shooting performance in their loss to the Hawks in the opener of this series. This was a team that saw vast improvement shooting from three in the second half of the season. New York with good size inside did win the rebounding battle by good margin. Barrett and Randle were off and will bounce back in this game. Atlanta’s performance in the opener was not overwhelming. Knicks a strong defensive team will adjust and get their shooters back in form here. Play New York -2.
Memphis Grizzlies vs. Utah Jazz NBA Pick Prediction 5/26/2021
Grizzlies at Jazz—Free pick is Memphis Grizzlies +8.5. Just looking for the Grizzlies to be competitive in this game. Memphis as the ninth seed survived two elimination games to make the playoffs. A huge confidence builder in their win at Golden St was matched by their Game 1 win at Utah. Their nucleus is healthy in Morant, Valenciunas and Jackson as they built up their chemistry late in the regular season that has led to three straight postseason wins. Donovan Mitchell was a late scratch in the opener due to his sprained ankle. That remains a concern for Game 2 and how well Mitchell can play with this lower leg injury which can greatly hinder performance. Not to mention the rust factor as well. Jazz had questions defensively on the road. They did allow 114.3 points per 100 possessions to Memphis to open the playoffs but in a home game. Grizzlies look mentally tough enough to cover here and match intensity. Play Memphis +8.5.
