We have two sudden-death game seven contests today in the Eastern and Western Conference.
The Philadelphia 76ers travel to Toronto to take on the Raptors and the Portland Trail Blazers travel to Denver to take on the Nuggets.
It should be a great day of hoops with two do or die clashes.

Take a look how we went yesterday in our NBA Picks.
Portland Trail Blazers 3 @ Denver 3
Prediction Game Total Under 214.5
Denver – 5.5
These two sides are evenly matched with the Nuggets having a distinct advantage in the Big Man Department.
The Nuggets should win this game at home as they have been dangerous there all season.
If the Blazers can contain Jokic they may be a chance but will need a big game from either Damian Lillard or C.J. McCollum to be in it at the end.
Expect a lot of defense in this game and the game total could go well under as Game 7 Contests generally are won by playing a lot of solid defense.
Gary Harris + 13.5 Points
Harris has been playing a lot of minutes and does generally put up enough shots to score around 20 Points. He will need to step up if the Nuggets are going to win and should cover this number.
Philadelphia 76ers 3 @ Toronto Raptors 3
Prediction Game Total Under 209.5
Toronto – 6.5
The 76ers have been pretty good in this series and the question is whether or not Joel Embiid is actually healthy. He keeps playing which would suggest that he is, but Marc Gasol has clearly won the battle in the first 6 games.
If the Sixers can find a way of stopping Kawhi Leonard then they may be a chance, but if a couple of other Raptors step up it could be over early particularly with that Raptors home crowd.
Expect a low scoring contest and the Raptors should win this game.
Kyle Lowry + 14.5 Points
Speaking of players that may step up for the Raptors Lowry might just be one of them. He can score points and may find himself open when the Sixers try and defend and Double Team Leonard. Lowry will put up enough shots to cover this number.
