Game 1: Brooklyn Nets vs Philadelphia 76ers (-390), 8:10 p.m. EST
The Philadelphia 76ers were one of three higher-seeded teams to fall at home in the first round of this year's NBA Playoffs, as the No. 6-seed Brooklyn Nets knocked them off 111-102 in Game 1. However, the 76ers proved they can bounce back after a tough performance this season, as Philadelphia was 23-8 straight up following a loss, which was the third-best record in the NBA in such games. Even if the 76ers don't get Joel Embiid back tonight, look for Ben Simmons, Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris to respond in a major way.
Game 2: Los Angeles Clippers vs Golden State Warriors (-1200), 10:40 p.m. EST
Picking the Golden State Warriors to win a postseason game usually doesn't require much of an explanation, and they should handle the Los Angeles Clippers at home tonight. The Warriors defeated the Clippers in Game 1, 121-104, and Golden State has won four of its five contests against Los Angeles this season.
