Like a fisherman standing in the east coast of Japan, the San Antonio Spurs are staring disaster right in the face, even if they are the betting on basketball favorites (-145) versus the OKC Thunder for game 6 of their series on Thursday. That night, their season could end as abruptly as an aposiopetic sentence. The Spurs have defended Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant as well as any is ever going to, but those two must have enabled the NBA Jam “always on fire” cheat code, because the Thunder lead the series 3-2 and may wrap things up at Cheesecake Energy Arena.
MVP Stephen Curry and not-VP Damian Lillard went toe to toe in Game 4 of their second-round playoff series on Monday, but Curry’s sneakers which house his toes cost more than $500. It was a battle of the league's best point guard versus the league’s second best point guard, and Lillard gave Curry a run for his money for the entirety of the game – regulation time, that is. When the match went into overtime, Curry just said screw this noise. He scored the first 12 Warriors points in OT and set an NBA record of 17 in the extra quarter on his way to scoring 40 points as the Warriors defeated the Blazers, 132-125, to take a 3-1 series lead. The Warriors will have a chance to wrap up on Wednesday at home, where online betting odds favor them -1100 to +700.
With the Conference Finals right around the corner and with Cleveland sweeping their second straight playoff series; sports betting fans should begin to wonder if the Cavaliers are better than the Warriors right now. Let’s look at the cold facts: The Cavaliers are on an 8-0 winning streak and they are comfortably waiting for an opponent in the Easter Conference Finals, for a second straight year.
At the time they weren’t online betting favorites (the tables have turned, though), so it was a surprise when the Miami Heat figuratively drew first blood by winning game 1 of their series versus the Raptors at Toronto. Who would have thought, thought, that the Raptors would draw literal blood in game2? It was an accident, of course – DeMar DeRozan brought his elbow up and busted Goran Dragic lip. Or maybe it was Dragic who brought his head down in the way of DeRozan’s elbow; he does have a weird tendency to get his front tooth knocked out – the string and doorknob method may not be well known in Slovenia.
When betting on basketball is as one-sided as the Cleveland Cavaliers made game 2 of their NBA playoffs second round series against the Atlanta Hawks, it’s always refreshing when extracurricular occurrences shake things up a bit. For example, Charles Oakley and Charles Barkley are clearly paying tribute to the late, great Prince – specifically one if his biggest hits – by reviving their 1999 feud. And it was about time, too; according to the 7 Year Rule, they were able to rehash this particular storyline since 2006. It all started with the Cavs’ dissection of the Hawks on Wednesday.
