Hawks +5.5 over Wizards (2u)
John Wall and the Wizards got the Game One win, but is this team experienced enough on this stage to pull away with ease in this series? I’m not so sure. The Hawks are a talented team that now are in desperation mode. Going down 0-2 in the NBA Playoffs is never a good thing. The Hawks had 17 turnovers after jumping out to an early lead and that really cost them last game and Dwight Howard was awful only scoring 8 points and accounting for a -21 point differential when he was on the floor. I think the Hawks make the necessary adjustments to keep this game much closer and Millsap and Howard should have big games down low. I look for this is going to be a great game going right down to the last shot or two and wouldn’t be shocked if the Hawks tie this series with an outright win. Take the Hawks.

Thunder +8 over Rockets (2u)
I loved the Rockets in the first game of this series but I really like OKC to make adjustments and make this much closer than the last game. Westbrook and Oladipo didn’t play well and the Thunder who are the best rebounding team in the league were dominated on the glass by a 62-48 margin in Game One. If OKC has any shot to win this series they need to steal a game in Houston and probably this game tonight and they know that. I look for them to come out strong and compete to the very end with a chance to win this outright. Outside of the blowout last game all of these matchups have been decided by 3 points or less, the points are golden in this one. Take the Thunder.
Parlay both spreads for 1 unit +260.
