Golden State Warriors vs. Oklahoma City Thunder (8:00 PM ET)
Apart from rebounding, the Warriors found their shooting stroke at the right time as well. Seven players scored in double-digits in Game 2, with league MVP Stephen Curry leading the way once more with his 28 points (5-of-8 from downtown). With the offense clicking again, the Dubs remain -340 favorites of winning this series, and slight favorites to emerge victorious this Sunday night just the same.
Golden State (-3) prevails with a thrilling 108-106 victory on the road.
Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Pittsburgh Penguins (8:00 PM ET)
Both the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Pittsburgh Penguins are dealing with goalie issues at the wrong time. The Penguins fell short of a comeback victory on Friday, falling 4-3 to the Lightning after switching to Marc-Andre Fleury between the posts in place of suddenly-struggling rookie Matt Murray.
Meanwhile Tampa Bay, who’s still without star netminder Ben Bishop, has gotten by with backup Andrei Vasilevskiy as its starting goalie in large part to its potent offense. Considering that the Lightning managed to find the back of the net nine times in three regular-season contests against Pittsburgh’s Fleury, they are still in good shape to seize control of the series this Sunday night, and likely improve their current +200 odds at winning the entire series.
Tampa Bay (+175) wins with another dominant offensive performance, 4-2.
