Preview 2014 NBA games at http://www.BookMaker.net/Video, Pat Williams and Kenny White present a break down of these April 24 NBA matchups from a betting perspective, including updated NBA odds.
Indiana Pacers vs Atlanta Hawks – 7:05 PM
The Pacers evened the series against the eighth-seeded Atlanta Hawks with a dominating third-quarter performance in Game 2, stifling some of the incessant criticism the supposed best team in the East had endured after sleepwalking through the final seven weeks of the regular season and turning in a dismal performance in the playoff opener.
Of course, the condemnation will start up all over again if the Pacers falter in Game 3 on Thursday night.
Oklahoma City Thunder vs Memphis Grizzlies – 8:00 PM
The Grizzlies evened this first-round Western Conference series by winning 111-105 in overtime at Oklahoma City on Monday. Being the visitor Thursday night in a hostile arena for Game 3 isn’t a concern for the Thunder, who went 25-16 away from Oklahoma City for the NBA’s second-best road record in the regular season.
