Kevin Durant torched the Grizzlies with 35 points, 15 rebounds and 6 assist.


Now that the Most Valuable Player award hoopla is finally over with, and that the culprit who had the nerve to vote for Carmelo Anthony has been unmasked (I’m talking to you Gary Washburn), we can get back to what matters most—gambling on NBA games. The second round got underway on Sunday with the Indiana Pacers stealing Game 1 in New York and Kevin Durant going nuts on his stat-line by putting up 35 points, 15 rebounds and 6 assist on the Grizzlies.
 
Monday’s games will feature the Bulls vs. Heat and Warriors vs. Spurs, and showcase the two teams most likely to make the NBA Finals—and no I’m not talking about Chicago and Golden State. Before the second round gets too deep into its matchups, let’s take a look at the series prices and odds for the upcoming games.
