Ryan McKee (@TheRyanMcKee) and Zach Broner (@NBAZachB) pick winners for the NBA Playoffs games on Wednesday, September 9: Toronto Raptors vs Boston Celtics (-3) and Denver Nuggets vs Los Angeles Clippers (-8). The guys start with recapping a lot of the NBA action that happened over Labor Day weekend. How did the Milwaukee Bucks fight off elimination against the Miami Heat without Giannis? What is going on the the LA Lakers versus the Houston Rockets? Why is Russell Westbrook playing so horrible? And what happens if the Rockets end up facing the Clippers in the Western Conference Finals?
Ryan and Zach dive into their NBA Picks Wednesday with both predicting that the Boston Celtics have this series in hand. Zach isn’t willing to say they’ll definitely win Game 6, but Ryan is betting on it. That might partially be because he has a bet on Boston to win the series 4-2 at +350 odds. Dollar signs might be clouding his vision. The guys explore every angle that Toronto might mount a comeback, but they’re not seeing it. Especially if Serge Ibaka is out for the next game. Apparently, he’s in a walking boot right now.
Finally, the guys recap Game 3 of the Denver Nuggets versus LA Clippers and preview Game 4. As a Jokic truther, Zach isn’t willing to say the Nuggets are dead. In fact, he’s predicting a huge game from Jamaal Murray. Ryan, on the other hand, is ready for the Clippers to put the Nuggets to bed. That 8 point spread might deter him though.
