NBA Bets Playoff Edition - Monday April 15 - Brooklyn Again

NBA playoffs Nets and Magic stun high-seeds 76ers and Raptors

In his first playoff game here, Tobias Harris managed just 4-7-6. He is listed as questionable right now for Game 2 due to his knee injury. While Russell and the Nets other two top guards, Caris LeVert, and Spencer Dinwiddie were the difference in Game 1, the 76ers' ability to lock down the outside and funnel Brooklyn scorers inside helped to neutralize the Nets' biggest strength. The Clippers found some success running the pick-and-roll with Williams and Harrell, specifically when DeMarcus Cousins was in the game, so they may look to get back to that more in Game 2.

The Nuggets have been a surprise team this season, ascending all the way to the No. 2 seed in the West.

After a poor Game 1, Ben Simmons responded in style. with his second career playoff triple-double. Remember, this is a team that faded down the stretch of the season. They finished with 15 assists as a team compared to the 20 of Philadelphia.

Their offense has gone into the tank, ranking 28th in points per game since the All-Star break.

The Nuggets trailed for nearly the entire game but got the game to within a single point in the final seconds.

Lots of iso ball play in Game 1. Philadelphia was upset at home 111-102, and the favorites might be in trouble for the rest of a series that they are supposed to win.

They used a historic third quarter, scoring an NBA Playoff record-tying 51 points, to turn a one-point halftime lead into a 29-point lead going into the fourth quarter to decide the outcome of this game. So for this game, my pick is the cheaper and more steady, albeit less flashy DeMarre Carroll. Are you really that surprised? This information is subject to change, however, so be sure to check out our NBA Public Betting Page for updated figures on the game.

Brooklyn Nets had themselves an all round good game and most of their big names performed well.

Raptors coach Dwayne Casey's decision to keep defensive stalwart Serge Ibaka on the bench during the final Magic possession left many analysts scratching their head as he would've been much better at closing out on D.J. Augustin than slower and older Marc Gasol. That won't last. And even in that setting, the Magic still barely won. The Nets still gave up a fair few open opportunities but they played the odds and Philly now need a turnaround to win the next game.

Game 1 was an impressive win for Brooklyn.

While the 76ers are supposedly a four-headed monster, three of the heads don't look that good. Joel Embiid slogged his way through 24 forgettable minutes on his bum left knee.

Brooklyn - one of the poorer free-throw shooting teams in the National Basketball Association during the regular season at 74.5 percent - knocked down 24-of-26 from the foul line in Game 1, 92.9 percent.

In our Game 1 preview, in which we did have the Nets covering (but not winning), it was mentioned that the Nets did have the deeper team.
