Atlanta Hawks vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Pick Prediction 6/8/2021
Hawks at 76ers—NBA pick is Atlanta Hawks +5.5. Hawks to off to a fast start in their win to the 76ers in Game 1 going up 74-54 at the half. Strong shooting performance for an Atlanta team with depth in the lineup as they hit 51% along with 20 of 47 from three. Trae Young led the Hawks with 35 points and ten assists. Joel Embiid played his first game since tearing his meniscus. He did finish with 39 points, but the question is how much more damage did he put on the meniscus and how will it impact Embiids play moving forward in this spot where there is only one day of rest. Hawks have won four straight playoff games. 76ers are surrendering 46.7% shooting in the playoffs and the Hawks 42.3%. Play Atlanta +5.5.
LA Clippers vs. Utah Jazz NBA Pick Prediction 6/8/2021
Clippers at Jazz—NBA free pick is Utah Jazz -4. Huge step up in class with quick turnaround for the Clippers in this spot. LAC had to focus on Doncic but he has very little help around him. Utah is fully loaded with players who can contribute and support Donovan Mitchell. Jazz have covered nine of their past twelve against LA Clippers. Four straight playoff wins by the Jazz in that Memphis series with three coming by double digits and one by seven points. Five Jazz players in the playoffs are averaging 12 points per game or greater. Utah’s passing game difficult to defend. Clippers defense will get better in this series as it moves on. Jazz do not rely on one player. Play Utah -4.
