Clippers vs Thunder Game 5 Pick

Through three quarters of Game 4, Kevin Durant did what an MVP was supposed to do.

KD scored 30 points, and Oklahoma City had a 12-point lead entering the fourth quarter. Having put his team in a position to win, the Thunder were 12 minutes away from heading back home with a chance to close out the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday night.

Heat vs Nets Game 4 Pick

From perfect, to now what Paul Pierce deems “not unbeatable,” the Miami Heat are suddenly faced with their first test of the postseason.

After the Brooklyn Nets’ 104-90 victory over Miami, the Heat have still yet to win a game in Brooklyn this season (0-4). Now, leading this best-of-7 Eastern Conference playoff series 2-1, the Heat must try again for their first win at the Barclays Center, Monday night in Game 4.

Pacers vs Wizards Game 4 Pick

Line: Washington -4.5

Things can’t get any worse for the Washington Wizards. At least they better hope not, otherwise midnight will soon strike on their magical playoff run.

In Game 3, they shot 24-for-73 from the field and scored the fewest points the franchise has scored in a game, regular season or playoffs.

Clippers vs Thunder Game 4 Pick

They can no longer blame their owner.

They can only blame themselves for the position they are in.

In Game 3, the Los Angeles Clippers were bloodied and beaten. Oklahoma City was better offensively, defensively, in transition, and on the boards. The Clippers couldn’t get the stops when they had to, and they failed to make the big shot when they needed too.

Heat vs Nets Game 3 Pick

The Miami Heat have yet to lose a game in this postseason.

Off to their best start during the Big Three era, the Heat continue to successfully flip the switch when it comes to the postseason. The Heat are hungry for a three-peat and show no signs of slowing down after their sixth consecutive playoff win this year, and eighth over all. Over the first two games of the series, the Nets have been no match for Miami.

Wizards vs Pacers Game 3 Pick

Line: Washington -4

John Wall and the Washington Wizards still have a lot of learning to do.

Leading by three points with 5 minutes to go, the opportunity to head home with a 2-0 series lead was in their reach. However, questionable shot selection in the final minutes reminded us all that Wall is still a playoff rookie.

Spurs vs Blazers Game 2 Pick

Line: San Antonio -7

Damian Lillard grew up idolizing Tony Parker. LaMarcus Aldridge portrayed his game after future Hall of Famer, Tim Duncan. If Game one’s performance is any indication on where Lillard and Aldridge are in there careers both players have a long way to go.

Series Preview: Spurs vs Blazers, Game 1

48 minutes away from having their season end, the San Antonio Spurs’ experience proved to be the difference versus the Dallas Mavericks.

From the opening tip to the final buzzer, the outcome of Game 7 was never in question. The Spurs rolled. Now, the defending Western Conference Champions will be playing in the Western Conference semifinals for the 14th time in the last 17 seasons.

Series Preview: Clippers vs Thunder, Game 1

Two teams, both making headlines for different reasons, will do battle with a trip to the Western Conference Finals on the line.

For the Oklahoma City Thunder, “Mr. Unreliable” was the headline heard around the country. With the Thunder trailing 3-2 in the opening round of the playoffs, Kevin Durant made new headlines with his play over the final two games of the series against the Memphis Grizzlies. Durant responded with 36 and 33 points, putting the Thunder on his back and doing what a league MVP is meant to do.

Series Preview: Pacers vs Wizards, Game 1

Finally knowing who their opponent will be, the Washington Wizards begin this series against the No. 1 seed Indiana Pacers, winners of eight or their last nine games.

After exceeding expectations, the Wizards will be well-rested coming into this series after dispatching the Chicago Bulls in five games. Despite John Wall’s struggles against the Bulls in the opening round, shooting just 36.4 percent from the floor while averaging 18.8 points, the Wizards were able to advance thanks to the play of his sidekick, Bradley Beal, and veteran Trevor Ariza.
