IGGY at +160 on 1.5 FT made- I'll take it and enjoy the game, no sweat. No Klay, Looney or best player in the world. Iggy will need to come to work and probably do some damage in the paint where he has made a living in his great career. Who else is going to score?! Iggy has to come out and play well and therefore I love this play, whether he plays awful or not - he will get a lot more touches.
No Klay, No Looney and No Durant? Come on, man. These Raptors have a ton of heart and have high motors. They remind me a lot of the 04 Pistons. They get an early start to winning on the road and you get a play in the +. Toronto overs and take them on the moneyline, folks.
Both teams were bad offensively really in game 2 and still hit over this number. Limping in, you'd probably play under but alot of defensive units for GS, the perimieter and paint should be more open for Toronto to get things done. Raptors 3pt defense is 10% then in the conference finals. A lot of foul shots will happen which means stopped clock scoring.
I hope you didn't rush to make your bet because this Klay news is going to be pivotal. I think this line drops to -2.5 if Klay is ruled out and if you like Toronto get on it now. I like the over in this game again and i'm kind of shocked the total is this low considering the game is in GS. The energy is just so high and I htink it helps get players going and I'll take the over regardless of the Klay news.
Doc Rivers will get fined for his comments about Leonard but he was only half right. The reality is, yes he has some of that Jordan drive and competitiveness but he most importantly has a Pippen in Siakam. There were games that Pippen outscored Jordan too. I'm not saying they are just like them, They are the knockoff brand if you ask me. They look good from the outside just not the same quality but they can win this thing once.
The Golden State Warriors are heading into Game 3 with a few more injuries to the list than what they had prior to that with Looney out and Thompson potentially being sidelined as well. Thats going to limit their level offensive production as they have been impacted with various injuries up to this point. Either way, I see this is a slower paced defensive battle tonight.
The pace factor for game two was 100 in a Warrior win, up from 93.6 in the Warriors loss in game one. Toronto started beating Milwaukee when they slowed the pace and the Raptors are likely to try and slow down the pace of games which, when taken together with the expected defensive intensity and tired legs, raise my expectations of lower scoring games, I'm leaning Under 213.5 points.
Due to concerns about Looney being unavailable, Klays injury and the Warriors ATS record as a home favorite this season, I'm not betting this game before the tip and would instead consider a strategy of waiting until the game starts and if the Warriors are down a significant amount of points at any time, recently its been in the second quarter and halftime, and then betting the live spread or taking the moneyline with good odds, but only if Klay is active and good to go.
CURRY OVER 32 POINTS - With all the injuries, tonight is going to be Wardell's Ode to Oakland! He's going to leave it all on the hardwood of Oracle tonight. No Klay, No KD, No Looney, Steph knows what this moment means. @StephenCurry30 drops 45 in an absolute classic game.
NBA Finals: Warriors' Durant out for game 3, Thompson questionableKevin Durant is ruled out for Game 3 while Klay Thompson is questionable but practicing. https://www.yahoo.com/sports/warriors-make-klay-thompson-available-to-media-but-not-kevin-durant-185655560.html
With all the injuries announced the spread has moved 1.5 points in Torontos favor, which is a lot. It should also be noted this will be the first playoff game at Oracle Arena in 20 days between the Warriors sweeping Portland and starting the NBA Finals, so the atmosphere should be as ELECTRIC for Game 1. The Warriors became just the second team in NBA Finals history along with the 2004-05 San Antonio Spurs to record an assist on every second-half basket, getting 22 dimes. Championship basketball is sharing the basketball, and few if any do it better than the Warriors when they are clicking.T Also the defensive adjustments helped fuel the warriors offense, with the signature tell of efficiency being the Warriors 34 assists on their 38 field goals. With all the injuries this game could have more feeling-out moments as some of the first wrinkles and adjustments take place, but this feels like a game where the Warriors flex their championship muscle and begin applying series pressure on the Raptors for the first time. I like the Warriors to win big
Kevon Looney out tonight and Thompson is gimpy. Kevin Durant expected to be out for tonight and probably game 4. Durant, hasn't been cleared by doctors to practice. Even with Warriors at home, I hit Toronto +5.5 points and the +195 ML
