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

Three playoff fixtures greet us on Saturday as the BetDeluxe team highlight the best best in each game. 

The Hawks and Knicks get us underway on Saturday morning. 

New York @ Atlanta

May 29th 9:00am

The New York Knicks set up a clash with Atlanta with the series locked a 1-1 as the teams to State Farm Arena. 

Atlanta took the box seat with a 107-105 win in Game One in New York and now have the home court advantage. 

The Knicks did bounce back with a resounding 101-92 victory in Game Two to level the series as Derrick Rose wound back the clock with a vintage performance. 

The key for New York will be how they stop Trae Young. 

The gun Hawks point guard has averaged 31 points in both games thus far and a return home will only spur him on again. 

Suggested Bet: Atalanta Hawks -3.5 at $1.86

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Atlanta Hawks head to head
Leg 2: T. Young over 28.5
Leg 3: Total points scored under 211.5
Combined odds = $6.5

Brooklyn @ Boston

May 29th 10:00am

Brooklyn head to Boston with a commanding 2-0 series lead following a two classy victories at the Barclays Arena. 

The Celtics were simply no match for a brilliant Nets offence in Game Two as the championship favourite streaked away with a 130-108 win. 

It was sensational team effort from the Nets’ starting five with no standout but a host contributors on the night. 

Kevin Durant nailed 26 points, hauled in eight rebounds and managed five assists, while Joe Harris chipped in with 25 points. 

Jayson Tatum was left battered and bruised after copping a stray finger to the eye which saw him leave game two early. 

He could miss this game and if he does it could get brutally ugly on the scoreboard as it did in game two. 

Suggested Bet: Brooklyn Nets -7.5 at $1.90

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Brooklyn Nets -7.5
Leg 2: K. Durant over 25.5 points
Leg 3: K. Durant over 7.5 rebounds
Combined odds = $4.5

Los Angeles Clippers @ Dallas

May 28th 12:30pm

Dallas head home from Los Angeles having caused two boil overs against the Clippers at the STAPLES Centre to send the playoffs into a frenzy. 

The Clippers started the favourite in both matches and were expecting head to Dallas with a 2-0 lead, but alas, Luka Doncic had other ideas. 

A triple-double in game one from the Slovenian guard was followed up by a 39-point display in game two. 

The Mavericks would come away with 113-103 and 127-121 wins from Los Angeles and are now the commanding favourite to progress through. 

It will be intriguing to see how the likes of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George attempt to defend Doncic and the Mavericks. 

They seemed lost for answers on Wednesday and it will not get any easier at the American Airlines Centre. 

Suggested Bet: Dallas Mavericks +1.5 at $1.94

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Dallas Mavericks +1.5 at $1.94
Leg 2: L. Doncic over 27.5 points
Leg 3: L. Doncic over 7.5 assists
