NBA Playoffs Preview for May 8
The Heat and Lakers were both afterthoughts to make the NBA Finals to start the postseason. Now, they both have a chance to take commanding leads in the conference semifinal round and draw one round closer to another unexpected Finals matchup. Could a 2020 rematch be on the horizon?
New York Knicks at Miami Heat, 7:30 p.m. ET (TNT) — Miami leads series 2-1
Jimmy Butler returned to the lineup for Game 3 after missing the previous matchup due to an ankle injury. He made his presence felt from the opening tip by scoring the first basket of the game. From there, he didn’t look back. Butler finished the game leading all scorers with 28 points in the contest and helped Miami secure a 19-point victory.
“Playoff Jimmy” is establishing himself as a real entity, and the Knicks appear to be the next team in line to be crossed off his list. Although underdogs in this series, the Heat don’t appear to have too much of a challenge in New York.
Prop Bet to Consider: Jimmy Butler to Lead all Scorers (+105 on BetMGM)
Butler led the Heat in attempts in both games he has played in this series, and he has gotten to the free-throw line 11 times in both contests. His level of aggression and volume sets him up well to cover this wager.
Los Angeles Lakers vs. Golden State Warriors, 10 p.m. ET (TNT) — LA Lakers lead series 2-1
Although LeBron James is the leader of the Lake Show, the team currently goes as Anthony Davis goes. Davis, however, has struggled to string together quality back-to-back performances. His scoring performances in the postseason are 22, 13, 31, 12, 31, 16, 30, 11, and 25 points. Los Angeles has only lost one of Davis’ dominating performances so far.
Given that he played well in his last game, his current scoring trend leans toward bad news for the Lakers in Game 4. The Warriors have made several adjustments to try and tame Davis, but his one bad outing of this series was more about him than Steve Kerr’s adjustments. With a golden opportunity to put the defending champs in a knockout position, all eyes will be on The Brow in this one.
Prop Bet to Consider: Anthony Davis to Have Over 2 Turnovers (+100 at BetMGM)
Davis has only had fewer than two turnovers in two of the Lakers’ nine outings in the playoffs this year. With the combination of defenders and double teams the Warriors are throwing his way, his odds of covering this wager are favorable. He turned the ball over seven times during his last two. Golden State is well aware of his impact, so expect Davis to see one of the best game plans Kerr has drawn up all season to avoid going down 3-1 in the series.
