Head over to FanDuel Sportsbook now to bet on all three of tonight’s NBA playoff games.


Brooklyn pulled away in the second half of Game 1 before New Yorkers could blink. Though that could happen again, the first half showed the Nets’ lack of chemistry on the court, both offensively and defensively.

The Nets’ Big 3 have played fewer than 10 games together. They endured injury after injury, and now their growing pains will have to occur during the playoffs.

Boston is a well-coached, smart basketball team, and catches the Nets sleeping tonight. I’m not quite ready to go Money Line, but I’m taking Boston +9.5 and using my winnings to subscribe to another random streaming service that few know launched.

The pick: Celtics +9.5.


The Lakers aren’t falling down 0-2 tonight. It ain’t happening. Yawn. Take the Under.

I’m worried about Chris Paul’s shoulder. Paul returned to the court on Sunday, but did he really? He could not shoot or even dribble the ball well enough for streetball. Couple that with the Lakers’ top-ranked defense and you have a low-scoring game.

The pick: Under.


I’m going big by betting on Kawhi Leonard to score first. Think about it: the Clippers need to win this game — whose number are they going to call plays for early?

The former Finals MVP is about to have a big first quarter.

My first two picks already made you money. This bet is to help you put away that coupon on your date Friday night.

The pick: Kawhi Leonard +600.
