NBN’S TOP PICKS

Here are the games we’re most excited for this week:

NBA – 7 Orlando at 2 Toronto, Game 2 (Tuesday at 8 p.m. on TNT)

Game 1 between these two was a fantastic back-and-forth battle. Ultimately, the Magic came away with the big upset win, taking home-court advantage away from the Raptors. Kyle Lowry had a poor scoring night, and Fred VanVleet helped pick up the slack, but D.J. Augustin was on another level. Toronto will have to make some adjustments to contain him, because this series will be a grind for the Raptors if they don’t.

NBA – 6 Brooklyn at 3 Philadelphia, Game 2 (Monday at 8 p.m. on TNT)

The Nets took Game 1, stunning the 76ers crowd into silence. The series is certainly not over with another Brooklyn victory, but it would be a very dangerous game for Philadelphia to play going down 0-2 heading to the Barclays Center. It’s always fun when divisional opponents who are so familiar with one another go head-to-head in the postseason, and it looks like we might be in for another great example here.

NBA – 2 Denver at 7 San Antonio, Game 3 (Thursday at 9 p.m. on NBATV)

Denver had one of the best regular seasons in the league, ending with a 54-28 record and the No. 2 seed in the West. However, the Nuggets went 34-7 at home and 20-21 on the road, a stark contrast for a team that has NBA Finals aspirations. The Spurs went 32-9 at home this season, one of the best marks in the league. Denver could lose every game in Texas and still win the series, but that’s awfully risky. Taking at least one game in AT&T Center will be important for the Nuggets.
