    Armadillo: Sunday's six-pack

    Something I found this week contained these suggestions for being happy:

    — Return everything you borrow.

    — Admit it when you a mistake.

    — Stop blaming other people.

    — Listen more, talk less.

    — Realize and accept that life isn’t always fair.

    — Don’t sweat the small stuff; its all small stuff.


    **********

    Armadillo: Sunday's List of 13: Wrapping up a sports Saturday

    13) Someone at the Westgate SuperBook placed a $3,000 bet on the Clippers to beat Golden State in their first round series at 100-1 odds. Yikes.

    12) Nets 111, 76ers 102— Far be it from me to question the Sixers’ focus, but Amir Johnson had a cellphone on the bench during the game; at one point, he and Joel Embiid were looking at something on it, while sitting on the bench. Didn’t look like a video of the Brooklyn offense. Or defense.

    Apparently Johnson’s daughter was ill and he was checking in on her during the game.

    Then there is this: “Use of a cell phone on the bench is a violation of the NBA Operations Manual. Violation will result in a substantial fine and/or suspension.”

    11) Giants 5, Rockies 2— These two teams are only ones in major leagues this season that haven’t scored a run yet in the first inning. Colorado hasn’t scored in first two innings yet this year.

    10) Rockies-Giants game lasted so long Friday night (18-inning game ended at 3:50am here in NY) that the seagulls that usually hover over the Giants’ ballpark late in games took off about an hour before the game ended.

    9) Still don’t understand why some teams bat their pitcher 8th. Tony LaRussa did it, and Joe Maddon has done it, but neither one of them ever did it in a playoff game, and until that happens, then it is just a gimmick.

    8) Sacramento Kings hired Luke Walton as their next head coach.

    7) Baseball injuries:
    — Texas 2B Rougned Odor (knee) heads to the IL.

    6) Orioles 9, Red Sox 5— Chris Davis had three hits in five plate appearances in this game. Coming into Saturday, Davis had three hits in his previous 83 PA’s.

    5) Tampa Bay’s Tommy Pham has now reached base in 47 consecutive games; the record is 84, held by Ted Williams.

    4) Duke played 26 basketball games on ESPN this season. 26 out of 38, and their four games in NCAA’s were all on CBS/Turner.

    3) There are 60 international players from 29 countries on NBA playoff rosters; every playoff team has at least two international players, with Utah (6) having the most.

    2) Going to be cruddy weather in Georgia Sunday; The Masters moved up tee times in the final round to 7:30am, with CBS coming on the air at 9am. Mets-Braves is the Sunday night ESPN game; doesn’t sound too promising for that game to be played.

    1) AAA Rochester Red Wings scored 18 runs Saturday….and lost, 20-18 in 10 innings.

    There is a sign on the scoreboard at Rochester’s stadium, sponsored by baldness.com. Having a sign on a scoreboard can’t be cheap. Must be good money in baldness.

    Sunday's Early Tips
    Kevin Rogers

    Eastern Conference First Round – Game 1

    No. 5 Indiana at No. 4 Boston (TNT, 1:00 p.m. ET)


    2018-19 Regular Season (Celtics 3-1, Over 3-1)
    Nov. 3 - Pacers (+3.5) 102 vs. Celtics 101 (Under 205.5)
    Jan. 9 – Celtics (-7) 135 vs. Pacers 108 (Over 216)
    Mar. 29 – Celtics (-7) 114 vs. Pacers 112 (Over 213)
    Apr. 5 – Celtics (-1) 117 at Pacers 97 (Over 213.5)

    The one Eastern Conference series that has been pretty much set for several weeks tips off Sunday’s playoff action at TD Garden. The Celtics and Pacers were going to finish as the fourth and fifth seeds in the East, but the only question was which team would own home-court advantage in the opening round.

    Boston (49-33 SU, 39-42-1 ATS) jumped into the fourth position by winning six of its final eight games of the regular season, compared to a 3-6 record down the stretch for Indiana (48-34 SU, 41-41 ATS). One of the victories in this stretch for the Celtics came at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on April 5 as short favorites, 117-97 to finish off the season series victory over the Pacers.

    Two games were decided by 20 points or more, both Boston victories, while the other two matchups between these teams were decided by a combined three points. The only win for Indiana in the series came back in early November as the Pacers overcame a 13-point deficit to edge the Celtics, 102-101 on a Victor Oladipo three-pointer in the final seconds. In the other close shave matchup between these squads, Kyrie Irving’s layup to beat the buzzer lifted Boston past Indiana, 114-112 in late March, but the Pacers cashed as seven-point road underdogs.

    Boston was on the doorstep of the NBA Finals last season before falling short to Cleveland in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The Celtics managed to shoot 34% from the floor, including 7-of-39 from three-point range in an 87-79 defeat. Boston went through that postseason run without Irving and Gordon Hayward, while eliminating Milwaukee and Philadelphia in the first two rounds of the playoffs.

    Oladipo led the Pacers in scoring this season by averaging 18.8 points per game, but suffered a season-ending knee injury against Toronto on January 23. Indiana owned a 32-15 record after beating Toronto by four points that night, but the Pacers stumbled to a 16-19 mark the final 25 games, which included a 10-game road losing streak.

    Indiana has failed to advance past the first round in each of the last three postseasons as the Pacers have been bounced by the Raptors in 2016 and the Cavaliers in 2017 and 2018. In last season’s opening round series defeat to Cleveland in seven games, Indiana managed to cover the spread six times, while cashing in nine of the past 10 opportunities as a road team in the playoffs.

    The Celtics finished with a better home record this season (28-13) than last season (27-14), but Brad Stevens’ team closed the season at 0-8 ATS in its final eight games at TD Garden. Boston won and covered in all three series openers in 2018, while the two wins over Milwaukee in the conference semifinals and Cleveland in the conference finals came by double-digits.

    After winning at Washington on February 23, the Pacers lost nine straight road games and covered only once, coming at Denver in a two-point setback in mid-March. Although Indiana lost to Boston in the final seconds, the Pacers grabbed the cover as they are currently on a 3-0 ATS run away from Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

    The last time the Celtics and Pacers hooked up in the playoffs came in 2005 when Indiana eliminated Boston in seven games. That ended a three-year stretch in which Indiana and Boston met in the first round, as the Celtics won in six games in 2003 before the Pacers captured series victories in 2004 and 2005.


    Western Conference First Round – Game 1

    No. 6 Oklahoma City at No. 3 Portland (ABC, 3:30 p.m. ET)


    2018-19 Regular Season (Thunder 4-0, Split 2-2)
    Jan. 9 - Thunder (+1) 111 at Blazers 109 (Under 223.5)
    Jan. 22 – Thunder (-4.5) 123 vs. Blazers 114 (Over 225)
    Feb. 11 – Thunder (-4.5) 120 vs. Blazers 111 (Under 232)
    Mar. 7 – Thunder (+3.5) 129 at Blazers 121 OT (Over 233)

    There are plenty of people that believe although the Thunder (49-33 SU, 42-40 ATS) enter this series without home-court advantage, Oklahoma City will knock out Portland and advance past the first round for the first time since Kevin Durant bolted for Golden State after the 2016-17 season.

    The Trail Blazers (53-29 SU, 45-36-1 ATS) finished one game behind Denver for the top spot in the Northwest division, but Portland didn’t have much luck against Oklahoma City. Rewinding to 2017-18, the Blazers swept the Thunder in the four-game season series, but OKC flipped the script on Portland this season by capturing all four contests.

    Oklahoma City slipped past Portland in the two matchups at Moda Center, including a 111-109 victory in early January as short underdogs. Paul George led the Thunder with 37 points, while Russell Westbrook scored 31 points to help the Thunder snap a six-game skid to the Blazers dating back to 2017. Westbrook drilled a big three-pointer in overtime of their most recent matchup in early March to lift OKC to a 129-121 triumph as 3 ½-point underdogs. In the loss, Blazers’ guard Damian Lillard dropped 51 points, but Portland converted only 9-of-41 attempts from three-point range.

    Since that overtime defeat to Oklahoma City on March 7, Portland finished the season on fire by winning 14 of 17 games to vault to the third seed in the Western Conference. During that hot streak, the Blazers ran off eight straight wins at Moda Center, which included victories over Denver, Brooklyn, and Indiana. Terry Stotts’ team put together a 32-9 home mark, tied for the second-best home record in the Western Conference.

    The Thunder finished March with a shocking three-point setback to the Mavericks as 12 ½-point favorites, but Oklahoma City dug themselves out of the dreaded eighth seed in the West to win its final five games. Billy Donovan’s squad went from potentially facing Durant and the two-time defending champion Warriors in the opening round to now maybe seeing them in the Western Conference Finals.

    However, OKC needs to get past Portland in the first round and the winner of Denver and San Antonio in the conference semifinals to draw Golden State. In the last two seasons, the Thunder has failed to escape the opening round after losing to the Rockets in five games in 2017 and falling to the Jazz in six games last season. In the last two years, Oklahoma City has compiled an 0-6 SU and 1-5 ATS mark on the road in the postseason, which doesn’t bode well for a team playing the first two games on the road.

    Portland doesn’t have much playoff success on its side as the Blazers have been swept out of the first round the last two years. To no one’s surprise, the Blazers lost all four games to the Warriors in 2017, but Portland was shocked by New Orleans last season, in spite of owning home-court advantage. Portland covered as 15-point underdogs in the series opener to Golden State in 2017, but the Blazers are riding an 0-7 ATS run in the playoffs, while losing six straight Game 1’s since 2014.

    Sunday's Late Tips
    Tony Mejia

    Eastern Conference First Round – Game 1

    No. 8 Detroit at No. 1 Milwaukee (TNT, 7:00 p.m. ET)


    2018-19 Regular Season (Bucks 4-0, Under 2-1-1)
    Dec. 5 - Bucks (-7.5) 115 vs. Pistons 92 (Under 225.5)
    Dec. 17 – Bucks (-3) 107 at Pistons 104 (Under 225.5)
    Jan. 1 – Bucks (-10) 121 at Pistons 98 (Push 219)
    Jan. 29 – Bucks (-7) 115 at Pistons 105 (Over 216)

    It’s hard to beat a team eight times without them getting on the board, especially when they’re well-coached. Dwane Casey surely has some ideas on how to try to give his team a fighting chance in this Eastern Conference 1-8. The Pistons are the last No. 8 seed to be swept in the East, falling against the LeBron James-led Cavs in ’16. They were swept in their previous postseason trip back in ’09 by LeBron’s Cavs too, so the last team in franchise history to win a playoff game is probably the one you remember best. Chauncey Billups and Rip Hamilton were among the league’s top guard combos. Tayshaun Prince, Antonio McDyess and Rasheed Wallace held down the frontcourt with Ben Wallace gone a couple of years by then.

    That was 11 years ago.

    Any chance to end that drought hinges on whether Blake Griffin can participate and be his normal self. Going into Game 1, that remains in doubt.

    Knee soreness sidelined Griffin down the stretch throughout the final two weeks of the regular season, which forced Detroit to reach the postseason on the strength of center Andre Drummond and point guards Reggie Jackson and Ish Smith. They locked up the No. 8 seed and secured a .500 record by sweeping a back-to-back against the depleted Grizzlies and Knicks. Both the Heat and Hornets would’ve been better candidates to play spoiler here if Griffin isn’t available.

    If he is, this series at least has a chance to be compelling.

    Griffin averaged 24.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 7.0 assists in the four losses against Milwaukee, but also committed seven turnovers per contest, making him rather inefficient to play through. Despite that, he’s certainly the best option to try and successfully score against a Bucks team that led the NBA in defensive rating (104.9). Thon Maker, Zaza Pachulia, Jon Leuer and Glenn Robinson, Jr. would be Casey’s options to pair with Drummond up front, though he can also go small and play four guards alongside the league’s top rebounder. Jackson and Smith run the point, while shooters Wayne Ellington, Luke Kennard, Langston Galloway and slasher Bruce Brown will man the wing.

    Even with Malcolm Brogdon expected to miss at least this first round as he recovers from a torn plantar fascia and Tony Snell sidelined with an ankle injury, the top-seeded Bucks have more than enough ammunition to squash a Griffin-less Pistons team. Giannis Antetokounmpo had his own issues with a sore knee throughout the regular-season’s final month and missed two of the last three contests, but he’s good to go here. Milwaukee has won nine of the last 10 games he’s played in, including each of the last seven. The “Greek Freak” has averaged 31.8 points, 11.6 rebounds and 5.5 assists over his last 10. He shot 58 percent over the four conquests of Detroit, averaging 20.8 points, 8.8 boards and 7.0 assists despite shooting just 10 percent from 3-point range.

    Point guard Eric Bledsoe averaged 20.5 points in the four games against the Pistons, while wing Khris Middleton averaged 19.7 points over the course of three wins against the team that originally drafted him, missing one due to injury. Drummond averaged just 13.8 points and 10.5 rebounds per game against the Bucks, well below his season averages. He shot just 44.9 percent from the field, his fifth-lowest clip among the 30 teams he faced this season.

    Only the Clippers (+10000) are a bigger underdog entering this first round than the Pistons (+2000) are against the Bucks, who were a 5-to-4 (+125) choice to win the East at the Westgate SuperBook even before the Raptors and 76ers blew their first-round Game 1s. Milwaukee is +600 to win the NBA title behind favored Golden State (-200) and led the NBA in wins and margin of victory all season while ranking in the top-five in both offensive and defensive efficiency.

    The Bucks were the East's top home team, winning 33 of 41 at the brand new downtown Fiserv Forum, which will host its first playoff game. The Pistons had the worst road record of any of the 16 teams that reached the playoffs, finishing 15-26. Their season-ending win in New York snapped a five-game road losing streak.

    Milwaukee has seen the ‘over’ go 6-1 in its last seven contests. The ‘under’ has prevailed in four of the last five games involving Detroit.


    Western Conference First Round – Game 1

    No. 5 Utah at No. 4 Houston (TNT, 9:30 p.m. ET)


    2018-19 Regular Season (Split 2-2, Under 3-1)
    Oct. 24 – Jazz (+1) 100 at Rockets 89 (Under 217)
    Dec. 6 – Jazz (-1.5) 118 vs. Rockets 91 (Under 215.5)
    Dec. 17 – Rockets (-5) 102 vs. Jazz 97 (Under 212)
    Feb. 2 – Rockets (+7) 125 at Jazz 98 (Over 222)

    Considering how fun and competitive Saturday’s action was, the NBA looks like it has saved its best first-round offering for last. Of the eight series, only OKC-Portland and Denver-San Antonio are seen as more of a toss-up than this matchup featuring the Rockets and Jazz, the only pairing featuring two 50-win teams. It’s a battle of the two teams with best point differential since the All-Star break, though in Utah’s case, a favorable schedule contributed to some of its dominance. Houston has the league’s second-most efficient offense. Utah has the second-ranked defense. Game on.

    The regular-season meetings couldn’t have been weirder. Each team won on the other’s home court once and got blown out there as well. Rudy Gobert got ejected over a beef with the refs in the second meeting, a 27-point Jazz win, but he struggled with foul trouble in one of the games and finished with just 10 points in the 27-point loss in the most recent encounter back in February. Neither Chris Paul nor Clint Capela participated in that rout, and both have actually struggled in the games they have played in against the Jazz.

    Capela is shooting just 38.7 percent from the field and 33 percent from the free-throw line in his three outings vs. Utah, averaging only 9.0 points against its length. Paul has only suited up into of the four matchups, shooting 38 percent from the field and 16.7 percent from 3-point range in averaging just 11.5 points and 7.0 assists.

    James Harden wasn’t slowed down. Although the 33.5 points he averaged against the Jazz is a lower figure than the 36.1 he managed to lead with the NBA this season, he shot 46 percent from the field and 36 percent from 3-point range and wasn’t shut down in any way by one of the league’s top defensive teams, so the Rockets are confident he’ll be able to get himself and teammates off at home to secure a good start to this complicated series. Houston went 31-10 at the Toyota Center, which was tied with Philadelphia for the league’s sixth-best home mark. The Jazz went 21-20 outside Salt Lake City, making them one of nine teams that finished above .500 on the road.

    Donovan Mitchell helped land Utah in the No. 5 seed with a 118-108 win over Denver in which he tied a career-high with 46 points on Tuesday before sitting out the regular-season finale. Considering his streaky perimeter range and uncanny ability to use his body to get to the line, comparisons to Harden and the now retired Dwyane Wade have been made in regards to the second-year Jazz star, who already has one series victory under his belt after leading his team to a series upset of Oklahoma City as a rookie.

    Mitchell has scored 30 or more in 17 games this season, which is obviously nowhere near Harden territory but certainly eye-catching. After struggling from the perimeter early in the season, he’s shot 45 percent from 3-point range since the All-Star break and can therefore get wherever he wants with defenders no longer being able to simply sag on him.

    Ricky Rubio has been dealing with a quad contusion but he and backup point guard Raul Neto (ankle) practiced on Saturday and should be fine to play without limitations. The lone injury concern for either team involves Jazz shooter Kyle Korver, who is dealing with a knee injury.

    Both teams have averaged 119.4 points over their last 10 games, each winning eight times. The Rockets are 25-2 when they win the rebounding battle, but that’s because they often struggle so much to close out possessions. The Jazz are one of the top teams on the boards and can therefore really do damage by convincingly winning on the glass.

    The expectation here is that this will be a long series. The Rockets run more isolations than anyone, while the Jazz run the fewest. There will be games that should swing on whether officials swallow their whistle when Harden and Mitchell go trolling for contact in the paint, so this matchup is really one to break out the magnifying glass on. This first chapter may include feeling one another out, but could also swing on who shoots the 3-ball more accurately or who draws the most fouls. Harden shot 12 free throws in the Rockets’ losses and got to the stripe 31 times in their wins.

    Utah will use Rubio and Royce O’Neale on Harden when it can dictate the defensive matchup here, while Eric Gordon will be tasked with dealing with Mitchell so the “Beard” doesn’t have to. It’s unlikely either team speeds the other up, so the total is back to 214, the neighborhood where it was for the first three meetings between the teams.

    The ‘over’ has prevailed in three straight Jazz games, but the late-season atmosphere might have had something to do with that. The ‘under’ had gone 14-6 from Feb. 27-April 5. The low-side in 14-5-1 over the Rockets’ last 20 contests since the beginning of March.
