NBA Playoff intensity will be turned up a couple notches Friday night when both the Utah Jazz and Cleveland Cavaliers look to avoid elimination in each of their respective series’ with both the Lakers and Celtics. Los Angeles and Boston took 3-2 series leads on Wednesday night as each picked up seven-point home wins, but each failed to cover the spread allowing underdogs to bark in three of the last four overall playoff games played the last two days.

The Cavaliers have dominated Boston ATS this season compiling a 7-2 mark, but Boston holds a 5-4 SU advantage. Cleveland also dominated the Celtics in each of its home games in this Eastern Conference Semifinal pounding them 108-84 and 88-77 as two-point home favorites. They’ve been installed three-point home chalks with the ‘total’ set at 178.5 for Friday night’s contest held in the Quicken Loans Arena.

The Jazz put forth a valiant effort in Game 5 at the Staples Center, but ended up on the short end of another road defeat. The seven-point loss was the first time in this series that the road team has covered the spread. Utah beat the Lakers in each of its home games this series winning 104-99 as five-point home chalks and 123-115 in overtime as one-point underdogs. Utah currently sits as four-point home chalks with the ‘total’ set at 213 for the sixth game of Western Conference Semifinal.
