Two NBA bets for Wednesday's Game 5s

By William Hill  ( 


In previous weeks, I have bemoaned the numerous injuries and the effect they have had on this year’s NBA playoffs. Finally, the injuries seem to have stopped, and teams have returned to full strength — (checks notes) oh, perhaps not. Kyrie Irving, Donovan Mitchell, Serge Ibaka ... I give up. Maybe I should just list the players who are healthy. As someone who has a futures ticket on the Sixers to win the East, the injuries hit home Monday night as Joel Embiid, who was diagnosed with a torn meniscus two weeks ago, looked for the first time like an injured player. He went 0-for-12 from the field and lacked the athleticism that makes him so unstoppable. On that grim note, let’s get to the picks for Wednesday night’s games in two series tied 2-2.
