Let’s start with the latest NBA news, stories, latest results, and rumors! If you want to watch NBA live for free, you should check the Bet365 sportsbook.

Playoffs update:

Miami Heat vs Atlanta Hawks:

Miami Heat are up 2-0 in this series, they have played amazing defense and held Trae Young in low scoring because of how many defenders they have on the team that can take on him. Jimmy Butler dropped 45 points in Game 2, which was absolutely crazy. They’re a well-coached team, and we do not believe the Hawks can win this series at all, maybe take a game at the max.

Philadelphia 76ers vs Toronto Raptors

Philadelphia 76ers lead this series 3-0, Game 1 and Game 2 were pretty much one-sided the whole time as the Sixers looked super dominant at home, however, Game 3 was super close. Toronto Raptors had the lead the whole time until the Sixers started playing well in the 2nd half, and the game went to overtime. Joel Embiid hit a game winner 3 pointer with 0.9 seconds left to win the game. This could easily be a sweep and we don’t see how the Raptors make it here.

Boston Celtics vs Brooklyn Nets

This series is by far the best series of the 1st round, however, Boston Celtics are up 2-0 in this series and both games have been very close. Kevin Durant is playing the worst basketball of his career and he needs to pick it up in order to bounce back, otherwise, Boston Celtics might win this in either 4 or 5.

Injuries updates:

– Khris Middleton suffered an MCL injury and will be out 3-4 weeks.
– Devin Booker is out with hamstring tightness after Game 2 against Pelicans and will be out for 2 weeks.
– Zion Williamson still remains out.
– Luka Doncic is day-to-day, he suffered a left calf injury and will play whenever he feels like he can go.
