NBA Tips & Previews, Saturday 16th April


Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse is where the Cleveland Cavaliers situate themselves for their final play-in conference fixture on Saturday.

The winner of this match will earn a spot in the playoffs and match-up against top seed Miami. 

Atlanta could not be hitting this game in better form after crushing Charlotte 132-103 in what was a brilliant team performance. 

Trae Young mustered up 24 points and 11 assists, but it was the way ‘Hotlanta’ shared the load in an impressive victory. 

Cleveland, meanwhile, found the Brooklyn Nets too hot to handle and were left to rue a slow start in their 115-108 loss. 

Atlanta will be cock-a-hoot coming into this game as well, given its strong record over Cleveland this season. 

The Hawks won the season series 3-1 and have the most recent win to their name over the Cavs. 

It was a 131-107 obliteration dating back to April 1, which saw Young combine with fellow guard Kevin Huerter for 53 points. 

With Jarrett Allen missing from the Cleveland line-up, Clint Capela should find his groove in the paint and on the boards. 

What was once a top-five defence in the league, is now struggling to find its mojo with the absence of Allen. 

Hawks have a sense of timing and can get it done. 

Suggested Bet: Atlanta Hawks head to head at $1.74
