Washington Wizards vs Boston Celtics (8:30 PM ET)
The Celtics are ahead of this series, 1-0. They proved that it’s not about how you start, it’s how you finish, as they came out on top in Game 1, 123-111, after giving up 38 points in the first quarter. With the win, they are now winners of five straight, recording 108.8 points, 14.2 threes, and 28.6 assists in that span.
For the upstart Wizards, it’s been about “The John Wall and Bradley Beal Show” all season long. However, in Sunday’s series opener, four other guys besides the two contributed well, with Otto Porter Jr. and Marcin Gortat each having big double-doubles.
With Wall’s elite play at the point and Beal’s explosive scoring ability, Washington is sure to make the series a tough one for the more-experienced Celtics.
The Wizards (+5.5) tie the series to one apiece and steal home court advantage, 114-108.
Utah Jazz vs. Golden State Warriors (10:30 PM ET)
This series will be a very interesting clash of styles. It’s the Jazz’s slow-paced, patient approach versus the non-stop run-and-gun of the Warriors.
The Jazz, who are fresh off their ouster of the Los Angeles Clippers, are an elite-ranked defense – first in points allowed (96.8) and third in efficiency. Additionally, although 28th in scoring (100.7 PPG), they are at the decent 12th spot in offensive efficiency. Topping all of that off is their notable 105-99 road victory at Oracle Arena last April 10th, where they recorded more rebounds, assists, threes, and steals than the Warriors.
The heavily-favored Dubs, meanwhile, will continue to boast their ever explosive play on both ends. They finished the regular season topping almost every statistical category in the league, including points, assists, steals, and offensive efficiency. So, don’t be shocked if they pull out the brooms like they did against the Portland Trail Blazers.
The Warriors will win (-13), but won’t cover the spread.
