Our Pick
Tatum has been on fire over his last two games. Not only is it due to his aggressiveness, but the Celtics’ injury issues are forcing Tatum to take even more shots than usual. Averaging 45.0 over his last two games on 26 field-goal attempts and 16 free throw attempts per game, it’s a fair expectation to see Tatum clear 33.5.

Our Pick
The issue between these teams is not scoring the ball. In fact, neither team really tests the other on the defensive side of the ball. The teams have cleared 232.5 over the last three games, seems like a simple pick.

Portland Trail Blazers vs Denver Nuggets

The Portland Trail Blazers have drawn their series with the Denver Nuggets level, with control of the series going to the winner of this match in Denver.

Our Pick
This series has been all about momentum. The Trail Blazers wrestled momentum back when they took a 115-95 victory in Game 4. They’ll be playing Game 5 in Denver, but the Trail Blazers showed they have the ability to slow down Nikola Jokic.

Our Pick
While the Trail Blazers did a good job against Jokic in Game 5, his lack of production was an aberration in his performances so far this series. He’s cleared 48.5 in his first three games, only failing to do so in Game 4. It’s fair to expect one of the frontrunners for MVP to have a bounce back game.

Los Angeles Lakers vs Phoenix Suns

The Los Angeles Lakers and the Phoenix Suns have been going back and forth in this series. With Anthony Davis likely unavailable, this may be a turning point for the winner.

Our Pick
With Anthony Davis unlikely to play, you can’t imagine the scoring rate for the Lakers would improve. The Suns might do better offensively, but the Lakers still have versatile defenders that can fill Davis’ role.

Our Pick
LeBron James has not been in a scoring mode in this matchup. Due to his own injury issues and the defense of the Phoenix Suns, he has not been able to dominate like he has in season’s past. Averaging just 21.8 points on 49.3% shooting from the field this series, James doesn’t project to clear 27.5.
