Russ’s teammates finally showed in in Game 3, and the Thunder scraped through to make it 2-1. Westbrook is averaging a triple-double for the series with 35 points, 11.3 rebounds and 10.3 assists per game.

The Rockets are throwing up plenty from beynd the arc, with awful results – Harden is 10 of 30, Ryan Anderson is 2-of-18, Eric Gordon is 6 of 16, Lou Williams is 6 of 11 and Trevor Ariza is 0 of 6.

If they can start draining some of these, they win the series. Rockets for us tonight.

Chicago didn’t have the same flow on offense with Rondo our injured, replaced by Carter-Williams. With Rondo sitting indefinitely with a fractured thumb, we’re back on the Celtics train.

Celtics to level the series tonight.

Griffin is cooked, managing to continue his trend of being absent at the worst possible times, out with a season ending injury to his plantar plate on his right big toe, suffered in the 1st half of the last game.

The Clippers must now adjust the way they’ve played dramatically, moving away from their bread and butter high pick-and-rolls with Griffin and Chris Paul.

One thing the Jazz have is structure, and being a game of that tonight, we’ll take the Jazz.

Best Pick: Utah WIN

Feeling Lucky Pick – Utah -2.5
