Our Pick
The Miami Heat threw as much as they could against the Milwaukee Bucks and still came up short. While the Heat were defeated by a single basket, Milwaukee didn’t even play their best basketball. Sure to improve on their range in Game 2, the Bucks are likely to go up 2-0 in the series.

Our Pick
Miami Heat big man and All-Star Bam Adebayo had a disappointing evening in Game 1 against the Bucks. He posted just nine points, 12 rebounds, and five assists. The Heat were hitting from deep, so they didn’t look for Adebayo too often. But with his finishing ability and athleticism, combined with Milwaukee’s expected focus on closing out on shooters, he’s very likely to have an improved scoring night.

Portland Trail Blazers vs Denver Nuggets

The underdog Portland Trail Blazers upset the Denver Nuggets in Game 1 of their Western Conference series, looking to go up 2-0 before returning to Portland. Check out the game preview of Portland Trail Blazers vs Denver Nuggets!

Our Pick
Frankly speaking, the Denver Nuggets just collapsed in the second half against the Portland Trail Blazers. Portland’s offence surely is intimidating, but the Nuggets don’t project to be such poor shooters two games in a row.
