Western Conference - Round 1 - Best of 7 - Game 1
The last playoff series to tip off in the NBA’s first round is the No. 5 Utah Jazz visiting the No. 4 Houston Rockets in the Western Conference on Sunday night.
This is a rematch from last season’s Western Conference semifinals. . The Rockets took the series in five games, with every game in the series decided by at least eight points and Im betting this game will follow suit. Im betting on the Rockets super star Harden who led the league in scoring at 36.1 ppg, more than 8 points better than No. 2 Paul George to once again lead the way . Note: Harden’s average is the most since Michael Jordan’s 37.1 in 1986-87.
