Toronto Raptors at Milwaukee Bucks (-2)

Milwaukee didn't just dominate Game 3 from start to finish in a 104-77 clobbering. Rather, it also felt like they left Toronto broken. The question is no longer can the rising Bucks pull off the upset, but can the three seed even win another game in this series? 

Through three games, the more talented and experienced Raptors have been completely outplayed. Toronto appears rattled by the Bucks quick defense. Players are bickering with each other. The dynamic duo of Kyle Lowry and Demar DeRozan played like ghosts (a combined 21 points last game). Serge Ibaka is slamming the ball in anger. The team shot 6-of-22 from three-point range. 

The bad news for the Raptors? Milwaukee accomplished all this without a monster game from Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Greek Freak came back down to earth with a modest 19-point and eight-rebound game.  

Historically, when an upstart team goes up 2-1 against a battle-tested team, a letdown is usually in store. However, Milwaukee is different. They have two players — Jason Terry and Matthew Dellavedova — with championship experience, not to mention their head coach Jason Kidd. The Bucks can smell the blood in the water. 

Pick: Milwaukee (-2)

San Antonio Spurs (-3.5) at Memphis Grizzlies  

San Antonio jumped out to a commanding 2-0 lead on the heels of Kawhi Leonard. The MVP candidate tallied 69 points on 20-of-28 shooting in the first two games. Moreover, Leonard's 28 free throws almost matched Memphis 32 in the two-game span. The officiating drew the ire of Grizzlies head coach David Fizdale in a post-game rant after Game 2 that drew him a $30,000 fine. 

However, Leonard was pedestrian in Game 3 with 18 points (just two trips to the charity stripe) and four boards. Not surprisingly, Memphis took advantage, winning 105-94. 

All eyes on Leonard in Game 4. He, along with the rest of Spurs lineup, were benched minutes into the second half, so they are well rested in this pivotal matchup. 

The Grizzlies will need repeat performances from their big three — Mike Conley, Marc Gasol, and Zach Randolph — to tie this series up. Last time out, the three rolled up 66 points on 24-of-43 shooting. Great game, but hard to duplicate. Expect San Antonio to seize control of this series again. 

Pick: San Antonio (-3.5)

Over/under 217 points: Golden State Warriors vs. Portland Trail Blazers 

Klay

No Kevin Durant, no problem for Golden State. A strained left calf sidelined Durant in Game 2, nonetheless, the Warriors pounded Portland 110-81. The hero of the game wasn't the usual suspects — Steph Curry, Draymond Green, or Klay Thompson — but JaVale McGee. He made all seven of his field goals and energized the team with alley-oop dunks. 

As the series heads to Portland, Durant is listed as questionable for Game 3. Whether he plays or not, it's on the Trail Blazers one-two punch of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum to make this series interesting. 

After combining for 75 points in Game 1, the two went 9-of-34 shooting for a meager 23 points. It was a stunning yin and yang performance, but credit Golden State's lockdown defense for making the necessary adjustments. 

Returning home will surely help the tandem out in Game 3, though. But like the Dubs, the Trail Blazers are monitoring the injury report closely as big man Jusuf Nurkic is doubtful for the rubber match. 

For a series with so much scoring threats all over the court, defense has dictated the momentum in each of the first two matchups. Expect more of the same in Game 3. 

Pick: Under
