After landing a winner in Game 1, our basketball expert is back with more selections for the second game of the 2024 NBA Finals

Following their thumping Game 1 success, Boston will be wanting to take an early two-game lead in the NBA Finals this weekend.

With a -115 winner claimed last time out, our basketball expert is back with more selections – focusing on Game 2.

Here are the best bet for the second game of the 2024 NBA Finals.

GAME OVER, MAN?

It’s tough to judge a series outcome on one game – but the Boston Celtics look an unstoppable force at this stage.

The Eastern Conference outfit won by 18 points last night – and they didn’t need to get out of first gear until the fourth quarter.

The return of Kristaps Porzingis has proven to be a game changer for the Celtics, as the Unicorn picked up 20 points against his former side in Game 1.

Game 2 has proven to be a banana skin for the Celtics in the playoffs – both of their postseason defeats came at this stage of the series – but they should really be at their best once again here.

The spread remains to be fairly kind to Boston, as they are only seven point favourites here. It likely will not be as big as a win as the other night, but they could push into double figures once again if they’re at their best.

Take the Celtics on the spread.

TIP: Boston Celtics -7 (-110, FanDuel)

PORZINGIS POWER

Marking his return in Game 1, Kristaps Porzingis proved to be a nightmare for the Mavericks.

The Latvian giant scored 20 points and registered six rebounds on Thursday night, as well as converting two of his four attempts from downtown.

The former Wizards recruit has registered at least three attempts from the three-point mark in nine of his last 10 starts – so there could be some value in back his returns from downtown here.

He should continue to put in the effort from the three-point line, so two or more three points made looks possible here.

TIP: Kristaps Porzingis Over 1.5 Threes Made (-125, FanDuel)
