Our Pick
Most of the Portland Trail Blazers role players have struggled through this series, due to Denver’s more than impressive defensive effort. Despite a stinker in Game 4, Lillard is averaging 35.6 points per game on 22.8 attempts. He’s going to get his shots, especially with his teammates’ inconsistencies.

Our Pick
It’s no wonder that Nikola Jokic is one of the frontrunners for the Most Valuable Player Award this season. He’s been brilliant against the Trail Blazers, averaging a combined 47.6 on points, rebounds, and assists. We don’t expect him to tally enough assists to reach the mark though, as his teammates have struggled to reward him all series.

Phoenix Suns vs Los Angeles Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers are ailing due to injury, the Phoenix Suns on the other hand are peaking at the right time! Check out the game preview, here!

Our Pick
It is always difficult to bet against LeBron James, but the cards are stacked against him more than ever in this Game 6 matchup. The Lakers likely won’t have Anthony Davis available and the Suns are coming off of a 30-point blowout victory. The Lakers’ offence just isn’t threatening and the Suns are in prime form.

Our Pick
LeBron James is certainly capable of putting up a stellar performance. However, he’s looked decidedly average, by his standards, through this Western Conference first round series. He’s only averaged a combined 37.2 for the series, certainly not enough to imagine he’ll log much more than that – even if Davis returns to the lineup.

L.James Under 49.5 (-115) Bet Now
