LaMarcus Aldridge. Texas. Playoffs. Not sure the last time this failed us — he always plays great ball while playing in Texas. He gets my Thursday Game 3 pick, and because if they lose that game and go 0-3, Spurs wouldn’t risk him to injury on Game 4.
Those who haven’t chosen Damian Lillard, he is the better pick. Down 0-2, he’s not about to let this series get concluded yet. He will try his darn best not to go 0-3.
The Sixers series is tied 1-1. Better not touch that just yet.
Giannis gets my Friday Game 3 pick. Ditto. Everyone hates a 0-3 hole.
John Wall is the better pick if you still have him because the Wizards are more likely to lose Game 3 to the Raptors, than the Bucks to the Celtics. You pick Wall now to prevent clogging on Game 4s later.
LeBron played great and tied it 1-1, so don’t touch that series for now. Nothing to see here.
Good luck with your picks!
