New day, same unbeaten record. After the Rockets took care of the Thunder on Saturday we’re now 4-0 with our NBA Playoff Locks this postseason. As some second-round matchups get going things are going to get a bit tighter in the picks department, but we’re up for the challenge of extending this unbeaten run.
NBA Lock For Monday: Milwaukee Bucks vs. Miami Heat
The Pick: Heat +5.5
Tip-Off: 6:30 PM EST
While the Bucks continue to be the favorite to win the title in the East, the Heat enter this series after sweeping the Pacers and are carrying all of the momentum in the world into this series. There’s just something about this Heat team that screams ‘struggles for Milwaukee.’
The Bucks obviously go as Giannis Antetokounmpo goes, and while he’ll surely put up his numbers this series, the Heat have the athletes to at the very least frustrate the Greek Freak with Bam Adebeyo leading the charge inside.
Both of these teams know how to fill it up from deep, but with how well Miami’s backcourt has been of late I think you have to tip your cap to Tyler Herro, Goran Dragic, Duncan Robinson, and Jimmy Butler heading into this series. The grittiness of this Miami team and ability to score in bunches should make this an interesting series and catching 5.5 points in Game 1, the pick is the Heat on Monday night.
