NBA Playoffs Preview & Tips, Wednesday 26th May

Tips, Previews and all you need for Wednesday's NBA playoff fixtures.

Championship favourite Brooklyn take to the court against Boston, while both the Clippers and Lakers head into their respective second fixtures. 

The best bets for all three playoff games are in.

Boston @ Brooklyn

May 26th 9:30am

Brooklyn aim to go 2-0 against the Boston Celtics after an 11-point triumph in Game 1 on Sunday. 

It was the usual suspects who were at it again for the Nets with Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving all leading the way in a 104-93 victory. 

The Celtics would take a bit of confidence from their first-half showing in Game 1. 

With scores tied at 57 apiece half way through the third quarter, the Nets’ big three were forced to go to into overdrive to ensure victory. 

It might have been a different story for the Celtics if Jayson Tatum found his rhythm. 

Tatum only managed 6 field goals from 20 attempts on his way to an underwhelming 22 points and five assists. 

Expect the Nets to win, but this game should be closer for longer 

Suggested Bet: Boston Celtics +9.5 at $1.91

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Boston Celtics +9.5
Leg 2: J. Tatum over 28.5 points
Leg 3: J. Harden 7.5 assists
Combined odds = $3.75

Los Angeles Lakers @ Phoenix

May 26th 12:00pm

Phoenix return to the Staples Centre with a 1-0 lead over the Los Angeles Lakers following a stirring upset win on Monday. 

The Suns took the lead at the 5:17 mark of the first quarter and never looked back to record a 99-90 win. 

Star duo Anthony Davis and LeBron James were well held by a stubborn Suns defence who only allowed the Lakers 76 attempts at the bucket. 

Individually, Devin Booker was the shining light in the match with 34 points, eight assists and seven rebounds in his first ever playoff fixture. 

The performance from Booker combined with the sting of a loss at home will definitely be a wake up call for the defending champions and expect Davis and James to respond in a big way. 

Suggested Bet: Los Angeles Lakers -1.5 at $1.90

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Los Angeles Lakers -1.5
Leg 2: L. James over 22.5 points
Leg 3: Total points over 208.5 point
Combined odds = $4.5

Dallas @ Los Angeles Clippers

May 26th 12:30pm

Los Angeles Clippers are seeking to level up their series against Dallas at 1-1 when they take to Staples Centre again. 

The Mavericks, spurred on by a triple-double from Luka Doncic, manufactured a 113-103 win over the the Clippers on Sunday. 

Doncic hauled the Mavericks on his back to record a 31-point, 11-assist and 10-point game to lead his team to an unlikely victory. 

Kawhi Leonard tried his heart out for the Clippers but his 26 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and four steals was not enough. 

The Clippers were expected to get the job done in game one after starting the point spread with a -5.5 handicap. 

Doubt they will throw this one away and expect the defensive clamps to be solely placed on Doncic from a point-scoring perspective. 

Suggested Bet: Los Angeles Clippers -6.5 at $1.92

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Los Angeles Clippers head to head (SGM SPECIAL)
Leg 2: K. Leonard over 25.5
Leg 3: L. Doncic over 7.5 assists
Leg 4: L. Doncic over 5.5 rebounds

Combined odds = $4.6
