As the Bucks look to finish the series in Milwaukee, the biggest concern is whether they could overlook this game in preparation for a tough series against the Celtics. Against another opponent that would worry me more, but the Bulls are done with this series. They haven’t been close recently, losing the last two by 30 and 24 which leads me to think if they aren’t poised to win, they aren’t poised to cover. The loss of LaVine will obviously hurt the offense, but call me crazy I think the loss of Caruso could be more impactful. Caruso is the one more likely to give energy to the team when they get down big, and without that spark, it will be very difficult to keep up.

Denver Nuggets (48-34) @ Golden State Warriors (53-29)
If there’s one thing the Warriors have been able to do this series, it’s score. Frankly it’s odd that this line is so low when they put up over 118 points in each game this series. They did even better at home, scoring 123 and 126 points in the first two contests. Nothing about how this series has gone makes me think the Nuggets will be putting up a revamped defensive front. They won Game 4 by shooting back on offense. Not to mention that the Denver guards at their absolute best just aren’t capable of containing these Warriors stars. This should be a blowout but the spread still worries me, so bet on the offense here.
WARRIORS TEAM TOTAL OVER 117.5 @ -110
