Phoenix @ Los Angeles Clippers

July 1st 11:00am

Los Angeles Clippers will look to build off the momentum of a game five win when it faces Phoenix in game six of the Western Conference Final series. 

Starting at a 3-1 deficit in the best of the seven, the Clippers delivered a 116-102 win to keep its season alive. 

Paul George kept up his brilliance without Kawhi Leonard to record 41 points, 13 rebounds and six assists. 

The Clippers shot at over 50% from the field which helped guide them to the 14-point win and a return to Staples Centre will serve them well again. 

Phoenix will be sweating of the fitness on veteran guard Chris Paul who fell heavily in the loss and has been in the wars with injuries throughout the playoffs. 

He still managed 22 points and eight assist alongside Devin Booker’s 31 points. 

With Leonard ruled out again, George will have to step up and produce a similar performance to what he achieved on Tuesday.

He proved that he could it without Leonard and there is no reason why he cannot repeat those feats. 

Suggested Bet: Los Angeles Clippers head to head at $1.90

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Los Angeles Clippers head to head
Leg 2: P. George over 30.5 points
Leg 3: Total points scored under 215.5
Combined odds = $6.25

Atlanta @ Milwaukee

July 2nd 10:30am

The panic button has well and truly been pressed for Milwaukee as it attempts to deal with what looks to be a serious knee injury to Giannis Antetokounmpo heading into game five against Atlanta. 

The Greek Freak hyperextended his left knee after attempting to block an alley-oop in Milwaukee’s 110-88 loss against Atlanta in game four. 

But the Hawks were not without injury concerns either as Trae Young missed out on the win with bone bruising in his fright foot. 

With the linchpins of both Atlanta and Milwaukee likely to miss game five, the story now becomes set on which players will take the mantle and rise to the occasion. 

The Hawks shared the load around with great efficiency during their 22-point rout as Bogdan Bogdanovic (20 points, five assists and three rebounds), Lou Williams (21 points, eight assists and five rebounds) and Kevin Huerter (15 points, seven assists and six rebounds) guided the way. 

Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer will at least have some time prepare for life without Giannis in game five and his side does get the advantage of a home game. 

Khris Middleton, despite being down on form in game four, has shown he is more than capable of shouldering the load. 

Suggested Bet: Milwaukee Bucks -4.5 at $1.91
