Game 3 between the Cavaliers and Pacers resulted in prime lapses from both teams on offense. As important as Game 4 is expect similar downgraded stretches. Grab the Under.

Look for the Raptors to make the needed defensive adjustments after John Wall and Bradley Beal combined to shoot 22 of 42 and the Wizards finished at 55.3 percent from the field as a team. Go Under.

It's do or die for the Cavaliers in Game 4. Blowing Game 3 was demoralizing but there were some bright spots for Cleveland. It will need another defensive adjustment on Victor Oladipo and attempt to slow the pace. Grab Cleveland in a value prime-time spot.
Instances of chaos this season among Wizards players were well-documented. The Wiz missed Wall for key games that derailed their true seeding. Game 3's performance seemed to give Washington the jolt it needed. While they may not have the same dominating output, look for a cash-out plus the points.
The nearly four-point shift in this spread suggests oddsmakers believe Game 3 essentially was a fluke. In other words, Toronto basically took the day off after going up 2-0, while a desperate Washington team gave a somewhat predictable urgent performance. But I believe this is about as evenly matched as you get get for a series between the No. 1 and No. 8 seeds, and wouldn't be surprised to see it go the max seven games. Look for the Wizards to even the series with another strong performance Sunday.
