Orlando Magic vs. Toronto Raptors — Game 2 — 7pm EST, Scotiabank Arena, Toronto
San Antonio Spurs vs Denver Nuggets — Game 2 — 8pm EST, Pepsi Center, Denver

In just three days of 2019 NBA Playoffs action, we’ve seen some incredible upsets and unbelievable comebacks.

In the Eastern Conference, the second placed Raptors will face the seventh-seed Magic. Incredibly and much to everyone’s surprise, the Magic took out the first game in Toronto.

Away wins in the playoffs are worth their weight in gold, so the shock defeat that the Nuggets gave away to the Spurs in their first battle was a painful one. The Spurs outplayed Denver and put a big scare through the home team.

Both of these big Game 2 match-ups will take place on Tuesday, so here are some tips for the matches.

Orlando Magic vs Toronto Raptors Tips

Pascal Siakam Over 18.5 Points @ -102.04

In the game one loss Siakam held his head high with 24-points and nine rebounds. This performance was the only positive to come out of the clash, as most other players were not at their best. Siakam is a good match-up against Orlando’s Aaron Gordon at the small forward position on both sides of the court and should come up big again.

Aaron Gordon Over 7.5 Rebounds @ +101

He may not be a great defender, but Aaron Gordon knows how to dunk and how to rebound. If Orlando’s big men get more attention on the glass, look for Gordon to flex his muscles on offence and pull down some quality rebounds. On the defensive end, Gordon boxes out well and will get rebounds. He had 10 boards in game one.

Kyle Lowry Pts + Reb + Ast Over 26.5 @ -119.05

This is one player that most people have written off after his game one performance after delivering donuts on the scoreboard. This will be the match where the veteran point guard takes D.J. Augustin to school, with plenty of assists and points. Players like Lowry don’t fade away in the playoffs, they rise to the occasion.

Toronto Raptors to Win @ -555.56

The home side will not lose both of their opening matches to the seventh seed Magic, who are lucky to have made the playoffs in the first place.

San Antonio Spurs vs Denver Nuggets Tips

Paul Millsap Over 12.5 Points @ -131.58

Millsap scored exactly 12-points in the first match, but shot the ball poorly, going one from five beyond the arc. If Millsap can straighten up his jumper and get more opportunities in the paint, he will exceed 12 with ease.

Gary Harris Under 1.5 Made Threes @ +104

Gary Harris only attempted three three-pointers in game one, making one. If Harris has the defensive assignment on Spurs combo guard DeRozan again in game two, we expect another limited offensive performance as his focus will sit elsewhere.

DeMar DeRozan Pts + Reb Over 26.5 @ -120.48

The star players of each side will stand up immensely for the second contest of the series, especially the classy shooting guard DeMar DeRozan. When you combine his points and rebounds for game one, you would have gotten 30, which he can easily do again this time as he shot poorly from the field.

Denver Nuggets to Win @ -294.12

They have more stars and a better bench, which is why they finished so high in the regular season. Not too many second seeded teams lose both home matches in the first round of the playoffs, especially when they are as good as the Nuggets.
