Another 1-1 night. And a similar feeling as of yesterday morning – where I feel happy about one game and not about the other.
I predicted that the Pelicans would keep their beatings going and give the Cavs a thumping. That one was actually a bit too close for comfort honestly as the Cavs performed a lot better than I expected. I knew they’d have a big showing early then get tired but man they fought hard even when the game was out of their reach. Props to them for that.
We had the Spurs -3 and their run ended as the Grizzlies beat them comfortable. A brutal early performance from the Spurs there who matched a season low with first half points.
One of those where you just feel like the sportsbooks got the better of you.
Bulls losing streak continued as the Blazers beat them easily enough. The big game was the Bucks vs Rockets and the Bucks did the business there with 21 freaking rebounds for the greek freak.
Spurs vs Thunder Betting Tips:
Right back on the San Antonio train.
Fact is I underrestimated that Grizzlies defense. Spurs just couldn’t get anything going against them. However the Spurs are insanely good at home and the Thunder defense won’t be as stiff as Memphis obviously. Thunder is just average and there will be lanes open for a Spurs team that want to bounce back.
DeRozan and Mills should do well here. Spurs have a bad 2nd leg B2B record but I still think they do it here. Thunder are coming off two tough losses and are missing Nerlens Noel as well.
Rudy Gay is still not expected to play but I’ve got to back the Spurs at home here it’s where they do the business most nights out.
That’s the only tip for today. I was very tempted to go with Over 226 in Clippers vs Nuggets but just had cold feet at the end. Don’t want to force it.
