Philadelphia 76ers -3.5 @ Brooklyn Nets, Total 228.5 – The Sixers stormed to a convincing game 2 win over the Nets, after shockingly dropping game 1 at home.

Unanticipated X-Factors of the Warriors/Clippers Series

Many could have guessed several players for the Warriors and/or Clippers that would vastly impact the outcome of the series. However, I highly doubt that Kevon Looney and Montrezl Harrell would be near the top of many people’s list. As the series was tied up on Monday, due to a miraculous 31-point comeback win by […]

Chris Clemons, Campbell: Clemons is an undersized guard, 5’9”, but don’t let that stop you from understanding he has incredible game. The senior moved to 3rd all time on the NCAA scoring list behind Freeman Williams (Portland St) and “Pistol” Pete Maravich (LSU).

3* Indiana @ Boston – O209.5 – While these two teams are known for finding ways to shut down opposing offenses, the Celtics have managed to put up points on the Pacers.

Vegas Picks for NBA Playoffs – 4/13/2019

4* Brooklyn Nets +6 @ Philadelphia 76ers – Whether Embiid plays or not is not is the biggest determinant in this game.
