Utah Jazz vs. Houston Rockets
Tuesday May 1, 8:00 PM EST at Toyota Center Houston, TX
In Game 4 of this series in Utah the Rockets beat the Jazz 100-87. Houston has won the last two games by double digits and they are double-digit betting favorites at Bovada to close out the series.
The Rockets did not have a great shooting Game 4 with a FG% of 42%, but they held Utah to 38.6% shooting and also forced 16 turnovers. James Harden and Chris Paul combined for 51 points in the game and Houston had balance with four starters going for at least 11 points.
Donovan Mitchell led the Jazz with 25 points in Game 4, but was only 8/24 from the floor, 2/7 from 3-pt range, and also fouled out. Only three players for Utah scored in double figures and they have to get off to a better start in Game 5, as in Game 4 they were down 10 points at the half.
The Rockets are back in their house and they will close out the series with the Jazz with a win advancing to the Western Conference finals.
New Orleans Pelicans vs. Golden State Warriors
Tuesday May 8, 10:30 PM EST at ORACLE Arena Oakland, CA
After losing by 19 points in the Big Easy in Game 3 the Warriors turned the tables in Game 4 beating the Pelicans 118-92. Golden State jumped out to a 15-point first quarter lead and dominated the game on both sides of the floor. They shot a legit 48.4% from the floor holding New Orleans to only 36.4% shooting, 15.4% 3-pt shooting, and they also forced 19 turnovers.
Kevin Durant went big in Game 4 going for 38 points and nine boards and Steph Curry chimed in for 23 points. The Warriors easily won the game even though Klay Thomson struggled only going for 13 points on 5/13 shooting missing five of his six 3-pointers.
While the frontcourt duo of Anthony Davis and E’Twaun Moore did not shoot the rock that well in Game 4 they combined for 46 points and Davis had 12 rebounds. The backcourt duo of Rajon Rondo and Jrue Holliday have to bounce back after Game 4 where they only combined for 25 points on 10/26 shooting.
The Warriors are back at home and have Curry back and add those things up and you get a Golden State win.
