Unfortunately, we’re coming off of a loss after taking the Raptors to cover against the Celtics in Game 7, but the good news is we’re still 7-2 with our picks during these NBA Playoffs. We also haven’t lost back-to-back games this postseason, so we have that going for us as well tonight.
While it may be easier to pick Game 1 between the Heat and Celtics tonight, we’re circling the big one, Game 7 between the Nuggets and Clippers.
NBA Lock For Tuesday: Denver Nuggets vs. Los Angeles Clippers
The Pick: Nuggets +7.5
Tip-Off: 9:00 PM EST
Nobody, and I mean nobody, thought that this series would go seven games, but here we are thanks to the Nuggets showing zero quit and turning heads along the way.
The Clippers will win on Tuesday night, but they’re not going to do so going away, this isn’t going to be some sort of blowout. Outside of their 23-point win in Game 1, each game in this series has been extremely competitive and Game 7 on Tuesday night should be no different.
Denver enters this game with plenty of confidence after its wild comeback in Game 6 outscoring the Clippers 64-35 in the second half. Nikola Jokic was a real problem for Los Angeles in Game 6 and when he’s playing with confidence this Denver team turns into a different animal.
I don’t think the universe will allow the Clippers to lose this game so we get a LeBron James – Kawhi Leonard matchup in the Western Conference Finals, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be a walk in the park for the Clips. Those 7.5 points are a lot to be giving up, I’ll stick with the underdog Nuggets catching those points.
