NBA Playoff Friday: Preview and Picks

Thu, Apr 26, 11:22am by Staff Writer

The NBA playoffs continue, with the New Orleans Pelicans and Golden State Warriors already through to the second round in the West.

In the East, the Philadelphia 76ers featuring Aussie Ben Simmons are through to the second round and await the winner of the Boston and Milwaukee series.

Elsewhere, Cleveland Indiana are knotted at 2-all, as are Washington and Toronto.

Oklahoma City will need to win all three remaining games if they are to overcome a 3-1 deficit against Utah. Houston will be hoping to close out their series with Minnesota on Thursday afternoon in game five in Houston.

Boston Celtics at Milwaukee Bucks

Friday, 27 April at 9.10am AEST at BMO Harris Bradley Center, Milwaukee

This is a must-game six for Milwaukee at home as they look to avoid elimination and force game seven in Boston.

The Celtics have been dominant in their three home matches, beating the Bucks on each occasion.

Milwaukee was down 2-nil in this series before two much-needed home victories.

The Bucks are $1.48 favourites at home with the Celtics $2.74 outsiders on the road.

The opening line for this match is set at 5-points favouring the bucks, with the over/under at 199.5 at $1.91 at Sportsbet.

Milwaukee need to channel the ball through their superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo if they are any chance of winning this game.

He saw too little of the ball in game five and the team collectively shot poorly, missing a number of free throws and wide open three point shots.

The Celtics feasted in the paint, with the Bucks lacking a dominant rim protector, using a combination of Thon Maker and John Henson.

The question mark surrounding the Celtics is who is going to close games for them. Terry Rozier and Al Horford have provided their fair share of clutch buckets late in games, but whether or not they can do that on the road in a close-out game six remains to be seen.

We are backing the Bucks to force a game seven to make this series interesting.

Best bet- Milwaukee Big Win Little Win 1-10 at $2.61
