Celtics to win at Hornets @ 9/25
Boston have recovered well from an opening-round loss to Philadelphia by rattling off five consecutive victories, showing plenty of spirit to shade tight tussles with Cleveland and New York in their last couple of outings. A rejuvenated Gordon Hayward has been one of the keys to success, while Kemba Walker is looking more like a team player than in the past. With Jayson Tatum giving every indication he is ready to fulfil his huge potential, the Celtics are well placed to maintain their current momentum.
Spurs to beat Thunder @ 53/100
San Antonio are facing a test of character after back-to-back defeats against Atlanta and the Lakers, but they can generally be relied upon to get the job done when favoured to beat lower-ranked opponents. Oklahoma City will seek to build on wins over Orlando and New Orleans but have been fading late on in tougher matches this term and we believe a healthy Spurs unit has the scope to prove too strong in the fourth quarter at AT&T Center.
Suns to beat Heat @ 83/100
Phoenix have improved to 5-2 with a hat-trick of victories and pundits are starting to predict they are for real after a 114-109 triumph over Philadelphia. Devin Booker dominated that match-up with 40 points, while Aron Baynes and Ricky Rubio again provided experience and leadership, as they continue to look like shrewd summer signings. New coach Monty Williams has made the Suns a much-more solid outfit on defence and we’re keen to keep them on side for now.
Clippers to beat Trail Blazers @ 11/25
Los Angeles missed out on a third straight win when going down 129-124 to an in-form Bucks outfit at the Staples Center, but star man Kawhi Leonard was rested for that contest. That result left the Clippers with a modest 5-3 record but the feeling is that they have been playing better than those bare stats suggest and they remain favourites to go all the way this season. Portland are coming off a couple of losses and have injury problems, so we’re happy to take them on in our NBA predictions.
