    Armadillo: Sunday's six-pack

    Six players taken ahead of Pascal Siakam in the 2016 NBA Draft:

    21. Atlanta – DeAndre Bembry

    22. Charlotte – Malachi Richardson

    23. Boston – Ante Zizic

    24. Philadelphia – Timothe Luwawu

    25. LA Clippers – Brice Johnson

    26. Philadelphia – Furkan Korkmaz

    27. Toronto – Pascal Siakam


    **********

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

    13) New sports book opened in Las Vegas Saturday, at the Golden Gate Casino downtown. Circa Sports is running this book; there will be a new Circa hotel/casino being built downtown soon, which looks like it will be really nice.

    12) Friday, someone bid more than $4.5M in a charity auction for the opportunity to have dinner with famed investor Warren Buffett. Wonder what was on the menu?

    11) Alex, I’d like Bad Baseball for $500:

    Bottom of 3rd inning in Chicago, White Sox have runners on 1st and 2nd, one out, with Yoan Moncada up, the #2 hitter in order. TV analyst Steve Stone predicts a pickoff attempt at 2B, because the shortstop took his glove off. Sure enough, they pick the guy off second, but not only that, they throw to first and pick that genius off, too.

    Pitcher is dying on the mound and he gets a double play without throwing a pitch.

    Stone is one of the best TV analysts; very smart.

    10) Jacob deGrom’s last three starts were against Scherzer, Kershaw, Greinke. Lot of high profile pitching matchups.

    9) Baseball stuff:
    — Milwaukee put P Gio Gonzalez (arm) on IL.
    — Red Sox put 1B Steve Pearce (back) on IL.
    — Texas OF Joey Gallo (oblique) left Saturday’s game early

    8) Twins 6, Rays 2— Minnesota is now 39-18; last year, they got their 39th win on July 8.

    7) College basketball transfer portal:
    — Texas A&M–Corpus Christi G Kareem South bolted to California.
    — American F Sam Iorio bolts to South Alabama.
    — Tennessee Tech grad transfer G Chris McNeal is poached by Cincinnati.

    6) Toronto Raptors’ big man Pascal Siakam didn’t start playing basketball until he was 17; imagine that?

    5) In Game 1 of the NBA Finals, Golden State was +2 in the 14:52 when Steph Curry was on the floor and Fred VanVleet wasn’t; they were -11 in the 25:24 with Curry/VanVleet both on floor. VanVleet has done a better job of defending Curry than anyone else in the NBA.

    4) Murray State G Ja Morant, who is expected to be the #2 pick in the NBA Draft, is having minor surgery on his right knee, which should sideline him 3-4 weeks and likely means he won’t play in the Las Vegas Summer League in July.

    3) Kid on Baylor hit three homers, knocked in 11 runs in a 24-6 rout of Omaha Saturday in the NCAA baseball tournament. 11 RBI in one game doesn’t happen much, at any level.

    2) Brewers 12, Pirates 10 (13)— Both closers blew their first save of the year in this 5-hour game; Arcia homered in the 13th for the game-winning runs.

    1) There were 1,135 home runs hit in May, breaking the all-time record for a month by 16.

    Finals G2 - Warriors at Raptors
    Kevin Rogers

    Two weeks ago, the Raptors were sitting in an 0-2 hole against the Bucks in the Eastern Conference Finals. Five victories later, Toronto is fresh off its first ever win in the NBA Finals as the Raptors lead the two-time defending champion Warriors, 1-0 following an impressive 118-109 triumph in Game 1.

    The Warriors lost an NBA Finals opener for the first time under Steve Kerr in five tries, which coincides with Golden State not owning home-court advantage for the first time in this stretch. Toronto used the energy of its fans (even Drake) at Scotiabank Arena to improve to 9-2 at home in the playoffs. The most shocking part of Game 1 was the Raptors didn’t have to lean on star Kawhi Leonard to carry them to victory.

    Leonard is averaging 30.7 points per game in the playoffs, but converted only five field goals in 14 attempts and posted 23 points in his first NBA Finals appearance since 2014. The real star for Toronto was Pascal Siakam, who knocked down 14-of-17 shots from the floor for 32 points, a playoff career high. Siakam put up a total of 32 points in the final two games of the Milwaukee series, but his efficient evening helped contribute to Toronto shooting nearly 51% from the floor.

    The Raptors also received solid outings from Marc Gasol and Fred VanVleet, who combined for 35 points, helping overcome the 18 total points from the starting backcourt of Kyle Lowry and Danny Green. Toronto helped itself at the foul line by shooting 27-of-32, while outscoring Golden State in three of four quarters.

    The Warriors continued to play without Kevin Durant, who is expected to miss Game 2 with a lingering calf injury and there is not timetable for his return. Stephen Curry led all scorers with 34 points, including 14 points from the foul line. Klay Thompson posted 21 points, while Draymond Green compiled another triple-double with exactly 10 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists. Six other Warriors scored at least six points, but none of them hit double-figures as Golden State saw its 12-game winning streak in playoff openers snapped.

    The ‘over’ (212 ½) connected in Game 1 as the teams combined for 227 points. The oddsmakers sent out a total of 215 for the second installment and Chris David offered up his thoughts and handicap for Sunday’s total.

    He said, “The ‘under’ looked like the right side early in the opener as the Toronto led 25-21 after the first 12 minutes but that false hope faded quickly. The pace wasn’t fast by any stretch as Golden State and Toronto attempted 78 and 77 shots respectively. However, the pair did combine for 25 three-pointers and the ultimate ‘under’ killer was 56 made free throws on 63 attempts by the two teams. Most of the fouls were deserving and you could argue that Golden State (29-of-31) probably should’ve taken more. Handicapping the free throw game in basketball is similar to forecasting for penalties in football, impossible! With that being said, I’d be surprised to see both teams earn 30-plus attempts at the charity stripe on Sunday.”

    Including Thursday’s result, Golden State has now watched the ‘over’ go 7-2 on the road in the playoffs while Toronto is 6-5 to the ‘under’ at home but three of the last four at the Scotiabank Arena have gone ‘over’ the number.

    David dug up some other numbers for Sunday, which focuses on Golden State’s ability to rebound after defeats.

    “Since the All-Star break, Golden State has gone 11-2 after a loss and it’s averaged 118 PPG. That includes a 3-1 record in this year’s playoffs. While many bettors would run to the counter and push the ‘over’ agenda, make a note that the ‘under’ has gone 9-4 in those 13 games and those results point directly to Golden State’s defense which has only allowed 106.1 PPG. Knowing that Toronto has been much better offensively at home (108 PPG) in the playoffs than on the road (101 PPG), you might be hesitant to go against the hosts on Sunday.”

    “While the home energy has certainly helped the Raptors, I don’t see Toronto shooting 50 percent from the field again and I believe the free throw numbers will temper down. Toronto’s Team Total is hovering at 108 ½ for Game 2 and it’s only surpassed this number six times in 19 playoff games. I expect the Raptors to try to muck it up again but I’m not buying their offense again,” David added.

    From 2009-2015, the team that lost Game 1 came back to win Game 2 of the NBA Finals. However, the winner of Game 1 each of the past three seasons (Golden State) has gone up 2-0 with victories in Game 2. The last team to win Game 2 following a series opening loss in the Finals is Cleveland, who edged Golden State in overtime back in 2015, but they ended up losing the series in six games.

    NBA expert Tony Mejia weighs in on Game 2, “I’m expecting this to be the final time the Warriors take the floor without Durant, which means it might be the last opportunity for the unit that did all the heavy lifting without him to shine comfortably. That puts pressure on Green to be far superior than he was in Game 1, where his six turnovers and inability to disrupt Siakam’s rhythm led to Golden State’s downfall. The Raptors deserve credit for draining huge contested shots late in the shot clock throughout the game, but Green never put his stamp on the contest despite ending up with the bare-minimum triple-double (10 points, 10 boards and 10 assists).”

    “With his knee not expected to keep him out of this one, both Green and Andre Iguodala will have to make sure they’re capitalizing on the attention the Raptors are giving Curry and Thompson. Gasol’s pick-and-roll defense was also major factor, so look for the Warriors to have tweaks in in place. I’m expecting to see a slower pace to Game 2 since the Warriors are going to make a concerted effort to get back better than they managed to on Thursday night,” Mejia notes.

    As far as props for the series go, Curry is listed as the favorite for Finals MVP at Sportsbook.ag with 11/10 odds (Bet $100 to win $110). Leonard is right behind at 9/5 odds (Bet $100 to win $180), but the biggest jump came from Siakam, who went from 50/1 odds prior to the Finals to 8/1 after the impressive Game 1 showing.

    Armadillo's Write-Up

    Sunday, June 2


    Toronto is 3-0 vs Golden State this season, winning in OT in Oakland in November, by 20 at home 13 days later, then 118-109 in Game 1 Thursday, when Siakam scored 32 points (14-17 from floor). Golden State won six of last seven games; Green/Bell/Iguodala were combined 6-18 on Game 1, Cousins didn’t do much off bench. Warriors need to find a third scorer with Durant likely out again. Seven of last nine series games went over the total. Over is 4-1-1 in Warriors’ last six road games. Toronto won/covered its last five games; they won last six home games (5-1 vs spread). Over is 4-2 in last six Raptor home games.
