Our Pick
Celtics center Tristan Thompson is one of the more veteran players on this Boston roster. He doesn’t play a ton of minutes, but he’s effective when he needs to be. While he’s averaging just over eight per game, he’s one of Boston’s two rebounding threats and he’s sure to collect his fair share of boards.

Our Pick
The Los Angeles Lakers weren’t dominated by the Suns in Game 1, but they weren’t able to find efficiency in their offence. With a veteran roster and nowhere to go but up in terms of performances from James and Davis, the Lakers are primed to even the series.

Our Pick
In Game 1, neither the Suns or Lakers were able to score 100 points. A big reason their total was so low was because neither team shot the ball well from range. After just one game both teams have shown great competitiveness. With Paul and James having rather average performances in Game 1, expect them to lead their side to an improved offensive performance.

Dallas Mavericks vs LA Clippers

The Dallas Mavericks shocked the LA Clippers by taking Game 1 from them. The Clippers are prepared to even the series and not drop two games at home. Check out the full game preview!

Our Pick
The Mavs and the Clippers combined to hit right on at 216 in Game 1, but both teams have the kind of offence that could outpace that total. The Clippers in particular were dreadful from three, hitting just 11 of 40 despite a number of decent opportunities. Picking up the pace is the most likely way both teams will overcome the other’s defensive schemes.
