Miami Heat @ Atlanta Hawks – 7pm ET

My first pick for this game is for the Atlanta Hawks superstar point guard once again, Trae Young. Despite the loss in game two of this series Young played much better this time around as he scored 25 points. Now he will be looking to replicate that performance in this third game as the Atlanta Hawks backs are against the wall. Young is already known for his impressive playoff performances and I expect another one in this game even if it ends up being another loss for the Hawks. 

My second pick for this game is for the Miami Heat superstar shooting guard Jimmy Butler. Since coming into the league Butler’s offensive ability has been doubted. However, in game number two he silenced a lot of those doubters with an insane 45 point performance to lead the Miami Heat to a win. I expect another performance like that from Butler in this one as he tries to put the Heat up 3-0 and give them a chance to close out the series in game four.

Milwaukee Bucks @ Chicago Bulls  – 8:30pm ET

My first pick for this game is for the former two time Most Valuable Player award winner Giannis Antetokounmpo. I look for the Greek freak to follow up on his 18 rebound and 33 point performance in game two with another big performance in the third game of this series. Only this time the Bucks will be hoping that it results in a win over the Chicago Bulls in the first game of this series in the Windy City. They will also have to find a way to do it without Khris Middleton after his game two injury and exit. 

My second pick for this game is for the Milwaukee Bucks to pick up a win over the Chicago Bulls in this one. Despite winning game two I can’t see the Bulls making it back to back victories in this one. As the Bucks will have a chance to adjust to the absence of Middleton. I look for Giannis to be too much to overcome this time around for the Bulls despite great performances from Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan.

Phoenix Suns @ New Orleans Pelicans – 9:30pm ET

My first pick for this game is for the New Orleans Pelicans trade deadline acquisition CJ McCollum. The addition of McCollum turned the Pelicans season around and now has them in the position they are in at the moment. They have a chance to take a 2-1 lead over the number one seed in the western conference and the best team in the National Basketball Association thanks to McCollum. In game two he put up 23 points, 8 rebounds and 9 assists. I look for him to replicate that performance in this one. 

My second pick for this game is for a New Orleans Pelicans victory over the Phoenix Suns in game three at home. I think the Suns will have a hard time picking up a victory in this game without Devin Booker. As I can easily see this series being 2-2 when they head back to Phoenix for game five. I think it will take them at least a game to adjust to not having Booker on the floor as they will need more out of Deandre Ayton and Chris Paul in this one.
