3 for 3 on Ish’s Picks last night starting the week off hot! Montreal closed out against Winnipeg in OT, while the Suns covered -5 with ease. The last play that hit was the parlay with both of those plays.

Tonight’s slate is another tough one, and I’m feeling good! Tail or Fade whatever you’d like!

Philadelphia 76ers vs Atlanta Hawks

Atlanta has proved that they’re legit this Post-season and as a Knicks fan it pains me to bet on them, but unfortunately money doesn’t care about your feelings so I’m with them tonight. Trae has been one of the best players all Playoffs and even with Ben Simmons starting on him from the beginning of the game, the pick and roll will still be practically un-guardable if his mid-range/ floater game is on. Bogdan Bogdanović has also been impressive and Danny Green or Seth Curry simply can’t match up with him, Danny Green is an over-rated defender in general. Capela showed he can at least out rebound Embiid and that will remain crucial. Atlanta is the better offensive team and especially with Tony Brothers and Scott Foster calling the game tonight, there’s a very high chance Young will be at the line a lot. Also, Atlanta is the much better free-throw shooting team and you have to think Ben Simmons will be forced to go to the line especially in a late-game situation. Embiid also isn’t 100% and I just envision Atlanta continuing to push the pace against a slower Philly team

PICK: Hawks +6.5. I was leaning to the Under and then saw the worst duo imaginable, Scott Foster and Tony Brothers, I feel bad for both these teams playing tonight, and I now lean to the Over for the sole reason of those 2.

Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Clippers

Most of the money is on Utah and it makes sense, After LA struggled with Dallas there’s still questions for me. Utah will not allow the same come back if they go up, they are too well coached and also much deeper in terms of shooting. I like Utah to make a statement tonight and cover with ease, Michael Conley is out and yes not having an all star player hurts but when you have the 6th Man of the Year right behind him I think they’ll be alright. Utah is rested and ready to come out hot while the Clippers played on Sunday night, so fatigue could definitely be a factor. Tonight will be a fun game and if the Clippers are going to want to win they’re going to have to keep up with Utah and if they’ll be able to conistently the whole game is questionable.

2U PICK: Jazz -3

Vegas Golden Knights vs Colorado Avalanche

I’ve been with Colorado all series, and after an ugly two games, I expect them to bounce back tonight at home. This is also a must-win game for them tonight before they head back to Vegas. I expect both goalies to show up tonight but I have to give the edge to Phillip Grubauer, especially at home he’s been fantastic. I like Colorado to come out and get back on track offensively. I lean to Over 5.5 for that exact reason.

PICK: Avalanche ML, Lean to Over 5.5.
