Welcome to the Truda Report everybody. Below I will be giving my picks for tonight's games. If you want to express your opinion, request I write more about a certain matchup, or request a new topic follow me on Instagram @thetrudareport or email me at email@example.com.
Update on my picks:
Atlanta Hawks @ Washington Wizards:
Currently the Washington Wizards have a 1-0 series lead over the Atlanta Hawks. I took the Wizards in Game 1 because I believe in their team this year, and I believe in their ability to win at home. Because tonight's game is in Washington, I'm going to take the Wizards again. John Wall is a baller, and I fully expect him to play just as well, if not better than his 32 point performance in Game 1. Also, expect the Wizards to pay more attention to Dennis Schroder who dropped a team high 25 points for the Hawks in the first matchup.
Oklahoma City Thunder @ Houston Rockets:
After an embarrassing loss in the first game, I expect the Thunder to put on a much better performance tonight. That doesn't mean I'm picking them to win though. I think that they will shoot better keeping the game within 8 points for the majority of the first through third quarter, but I expect James Harden to help the Rockets run away with it later in the fourth quarter. I'm taking the Rockets, in what I think could be another double digit victory giving them a 2-0 series lead.
Portland Trailblazers @ Golden State Warriors:
Warriors win. I don't care that Damien Lillard dropped 34 points. I don't care that CJ McCollum dropped 41 points. I don't care that Evan Turner played an all around good game, posting a double-double. The Golden State Warriors are at home, and as long as they have Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green in the starting lineup they will win this game. Draymond was a defensive force, and the best shooting backcourt in history will be able to match whatever Lillard and McCollum post in Game 2. Kevin Durant is listed as questionable, and personally, I would rest him because the Warriors can win this game without him.
