After landing two winning tips last night, our Basketball expert is back with three more selections for this evening’s games

The NBA playoffs continue this evening, with two tasty Game 3 clashes to look forward to.

Following yesterday’s winning selections, our basketball experts are back with more selections for tonight’s NBA playoffs – focusing on the likes of the 

Here are the best bets for Friday’s NBA Playoff games.

NUGGETS OF GOLD?

Denver find themselves in a tricky situation in Game 3, as they suffered two home defeats to the Timberwolves in the last week.

The Timberwolves have managed to keep Nikola Jokic quiet in the first handful of games in this series, but it’s likely that will not be the case for much longer.

The two-time MVP has the potential to turn games on its head and in a desperate situation, he could well produce a big performance for the Nuggets here.

Jokic has scored 30 or more points in six of his last 12 road games for Denver, and he has only failed to drum up 30+ points in one of his last five matchups against Minnesota.

In what is a must-win game for the Nuggets, their 3.5 point cushion on the spread looks good value here, along with Jokic to score 30+ points here.

TIP: Denver Nuggets +3.5 (-108, FanDuel)

TIP: Nikola Jokic 30+ Points (-105, FanDuel)

TURNING UP THE PACE-RS

After losing the opening two games of the series, the Pacers find themselves in a must-win scenario this evening against the New York Knicks.

Indiana have produced two poor performances in the fourth quarter in Game 1 and the third quarter in Game 2 – but they could feel more comfortable on home court and get the job done to keep their Eastern Conference Finals hopes alive.

The Pacers have some luck on their side, as Jalen Brunson will be carrying a knock if he plays and OG Anunoby could miss the game although.

That should help Indiana produce a heavily offensive performance – and that should see them cover the spread in a must-win game.

TIP: Indiana Pacers -7.5 (-110, FanDuel)
