Eastern Conference – Semifinals – Game 2

Sportsbook.ag Line: Atlanta -6.5, Total: 200.5

The Wizards made a statement by winning Game 1 104-98 as 5.5-point underdogs in Atlanta on Sunday. Washington trailed 37-26 after the first quarter of that game, but the team rallied back and really clamped down defensively in the second half. The Wizards held the Hawks to just 5-for-28 shooting from the field in the fourth quarter.

Despite the loss, the Hawks have still won eight of their past 10 games SU against the Wizards at Philips Arena. Seven straight games played between these teams in Atlanta have gone Over the total.

SG Bradley Beal is the player to watch for Washington. He has taken his game to a new level in the postseason, but he may struggle to move on what should be a very sore ankle.

SG Kyle Korver will be the Hawks’ x-factor in this one. He was just 3-for-11 from the outside in Game 1 and must be more efficient on Tuesday.

The Wizards are 9-0 against the spread in road playoff games over the past two seasons and 12-3 against the spread in road games when playing four or less games in 10 days in that time. Atlanta, meanwhile, is 10-0 against the spread when revenging two straight losses where an opponent scored 100 or more points this season.

Both SG Bradley Beal (Ankle) and PG John Wall (Hand) are probable for Washington in this game and PG Jeff Teague (Ankle) is probable for Atlanta, which is without SG Thabo Sefolosha (Fibula) for the remainder of the year.


Western Conference – Semifinals – Game 2

Sportsbook.ag Line: Golden State -10.5, Total: 197.5

The Warriors will be looking to take a 2-0 series lead when they host the Grizzlies on Tuesday. Golden State was a 10.5-point favorite in Game 1 and came away with a 101-86 victory. The team shot 50.6% from the field and a remarkable 46.4% from behind the arc in that game. The Warriors have dominated this head-to-head series recently, winning five of the past six meetings between these teams straight up and covering in four of those victories.

SF Jeff Green is going to need to be on his game for the Grizzlies on Tuesday. With PG Mike Conley (Facial) likely missing this game, Memphis will need offense from Green. He had just nine points and four rebounds in 27 minutes of action on Sunday and he will need to be a lot more aggressive on Tuesday.

PF Draymond Green is going to need to knock down some outside shots like he did in Game 1. He had 16 points on 5-for-11 shooting from the floor and 4-for-8 shooting from behind the arc. He was spacing the floor and giving the Warriors a lot more room to work with when attacking the basket.

One trend to keep an eye on is that the Warriors are 22-7 against the spread after a blowout win by 15 points or more this season. Conley is the only player in danger of missing this game for either team.
