Our picks for today's NBA action
Let's get stuck into the action today.
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.
Trail Blazers @ Nuggets
Nuggets won Game One and beforehand we'd questioned whether Portland would suffer from a hangover after their dramatic series victory over the Thunder. That turned out to be the case but you'd have to imagine that the loss would have jolted Lillard and co back into game mode. A win here would do much to help turn the momentum of this series and I believe that they'll stay close enough to cover the spread.
Trail Blazers +3.5
Lillard has taken Portland's postseason hopes onto his shoulders. We know how he went nuclear against OKC but he was very efficient in the Game One loss to the Nuggets, scoring 39 points. The line for points in this game is 27.5, a number he'll need to be over in order for Portland to win.
Damian Lillard - Over 27.5 Total Points @ -150
