Our picks for today's NBA action

Let's get stuck into the action today. We've got a pair of exciting games that will tell us a lot about either team.

Sam's NBA picks will regularly be giving you picks for the day's hoop action. I recommend backing these individually but you're welcome to parlay them too. Each pick is staked at one unit.

Nets @ 76ers

The Nets were at their best in the first match of this series winning 111-102 in Philadelphia. The Sixers won't be that bad again, and I think they should win but it's likely that they won't have Joel Embiid.

Ben Simmons will need to take on more work offensively and Jimmy Butler will need to step up and fill in for Embiid's baskets. It's a tough ask but I would expect the Sixers to win by 2-3 points, allowing the Nets to cover the spread, which looks very generous.

Nets +7.5

Clippers @ Warriors

Clippers @ Warriors

The Clippers looked woeful in Game One where they collapsed 121-104 to GSW. They shouldn't lose that heavily again but this is a Warriors team who want to get the job done in four and enjoy the rest.

Curry has been playing near his peak recently and he, as always, will provide the bedrock on which the rest of the team functions. Easy win for the Warriors and they'll manage to cover, even with this big spread.

Warriors -13.5
