NBA Playoffs Tips, May 28

LOS ANGELES LAKERS VS PHOENIX SUNS
Devin Booker 30+ $1.92

The Suns head to Los Angeles with their series against the Lakers tied at 1-1.

Following disappointing game 1 performances, both AD and LeBron showed up in a big way last time out, combining for 54 points in a 7 point victory for the Lakers.

The Suns were severely hampered by the shoulder injury plaguing Chris Paul, with the vet point guard forced to sit for the majority of the fourth.

With CP3 looking shaky at best, Devin Booker’s usage rate is set to go through the roof.

The Lakers have already struggled to guard Booker, with the All-Star dropping 34 & 31 points across the first two games, with added scoring responsibility I can easily see the Suns’ leading scorer dropping a 40 piece next time out.

PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS VS DENVER NUGGETS
Damian Lillard 5+ Three Point FG $2.40

Portland vs Denver may as well be renamed as Lillard vs Jokic!

The pair have combined for 68 and 80 points across the first two games of the series, with the results split one a piece.

Predictably, Dame has done most of his damage from beyond the arc, hitting 14 three pointers over games 1 and 2.

With the series heading back to Portland, the crowd will be egging Dame on to throw up a shot as soon as he steps over half court!
