Milwaukee and Brooklyn heat up the court again as do Phoenix and Denver when NBA playoff fixtures resume on Tuesday.
Our team is declaring a home-court advantage to be gained by an outsider!
Milwaukee @ Brooklyn
June 8th 9:00am
Brooklyn will attempt to go 2-0 up in the best of seven against Milwaukee Tuesday morning at the Barclays Centre.
Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, as per usual, carried Brooklyn to 115-107 win in game one over the weekend despite James Harden coming off early with a hamstring complaint.
Even without the deft touch of Harden, Brooklyn still had the answers for Giannis Antentokounmpo and his Bucks.
Giannis was enormous again with 34 points and 11 rebounds but it was not enough to stop the Nets.
Brooklyn proved that even without Harden it is a massive force to deal with. The Bucks have had a sighter and will be better for the run.
Milwaukee threatened all day in game one and that will give them confidence to get the job done in game two.
Suggested Bet: Milwaukee Bucks +1.5 at $1.91
Suggested Same Game Multi:
Leg 1: Milwaukee Bucks +1.5
Leg 2: G. Antentokounmpo over 31.5
Leg 3: Total points over 234.5
Combined odds = $4.5
Denver @ Phoenix
June 8th 12:00pm
The Western Confernence semifinal best of seven between Denver and Phoenix commences on Tuesday afternoon from the Phoenix Suns Arena.
Phoenix overshadowed Denver’s 4-2 win over Portland with a brilliant upset of the 2020 champions Los Angeles Lakers.
After being down 2-1, the Suns went on to win the last three games of the series to knock out the Lakers with a 113-100 win in game six.
Devin Booker showed exactly why the Suns drafted him with a brilliant 47-point, 11-rebound match-winning performance as he stamped his authority in what is his first ever playoff campaign.
His star status will be met by another potential finals MVP candidate in the form of Nuggest centre Nikola Jokic.
The 26-year-old Serbian rounded out his demolition of Portland with a 36-point and eight-rebound performance last week.
The home-court advantage for the Suns is what will come to the fore here as will the experience of nous of Chris Paul and his assist-laden style.
Devin Booker 25+ points & Phoenix Suns head to head at $3 (DELUXED SPECIAL)
