17.11.16 Indiana Cleveland 103 : 93

The Say –

Game 1 was a thriller thanks to a 24-17 Indiana last quarter that led to a 1 point win from the reigning Champs, with a questionable shot from Jeff Teague leaving PG13 obviously frustrated. But the Pacers would be encouraged with the outcome.

Lebron has never lost a 1st round Playoff series, going 45-7 all time and winning the last 18. The odds of the Cavs to take the series at $1.07 is probably justified, but obviously not worth the outlay.

Lebron was Lebron in Game 1, posting 32 points, 13 assists and six rebounds in 43 minutes.

The Cavs were a little sloppy to open the series, and coming into this one, the required adjustments will lead them to take the -7.0 line.

The Overs is our best bet here.

The Say –

We watched the systematic breakdown of a professional basketball team in Game 1 as the Spurs pantsed the Grizzlies 111-82. Things are going to have to change quickly for the Grizzlies if they are to break through tonight.

The Spurs caused turnovers and forced Memphis to take less than questionable shots late in the 3rd quarter, and went on a 10-0 run to finish the quarter, and ultimately put an end to Game 1 with a 20 point lead going into the 4th.

Gasol provided 32 points, 25 of which were in the first half, but after that it was lights out, with Kawhi (32 points) getting the support from his team that the big Spaniard wasn’t.

Spurs to win and take the line again tonight. Easy money.
