Saturday's NBA Picks

December 4, 2004

Home Team in Caps

Anthony's Picks:

Last Night: (5-4), Week: (17-16-1), Year: (92-81-5), Locks: (10-4)

Totally agree with Paul on the Phoenix game. Minny's playing well, especially beating Sactown on the road a week ago. Whatever. As far as Chicago goes, I hope that team rots in hell. Never bet one penny on these bastards, they will kill you. Good luck tonight.

Paul's Picks

Last Night: (4-5), Week: (18-15-1), Year: (99-78-6), Locks: (12-2)

We won our locks convincingly, but I should have ended up 6-3, not 4-5. I was 50/50 on both the Phoenix and Chicago picks, and instead decided to play the "take the home team when in doubt" card. Stupid. The Phoenix pick is what really bugs me--it's not extraordinary to see teams rip off 8-10 wins when hot, but anything above a 10-game streak is pretty rare. The Suns entered the game searching to be that "rare" team and were ripe for a loss to a momentum-building T-Wolves team. Oh well. Some teams are looking like rather safe picks tonight: Washington, Cleveland, Orlando, and San Antonio. I'd stay away from heavy favorites Dallas and Houston--rather unpredictable teams right now.

  • ORLANDO [10-1] -4 over Memphis [7-7] (W)
  • CHARLOTTE [6-4-1] +4 over New York [7-5] (W)
  • CLEVELAND [6-7] -8 over Toronto [10-5]--LOCK (push)
  • NEW JERSEY [7-4] -5 over Atlanta [6-6] (W)
  • WASHINGTON [6-4-1] -10 over Chicago [5-6] (L)
  • Detroit [8-4] -7.5 over NEW ORLEANS [4-5-1] (W)
  • HOUSTON [5-5-2] -7 over Philadelphia [9-1-1] (L)
  • San Antonio [6-6-1] -5.5 over MILWAUKEE [7-4] (W)
  • Utah [7-6] +8.5 over DALLAS [10-3-1] (L)
  • DENVER [7-5] +2 over Miami [9-3-1] (W)
  • GOLDEN STATE [6-5-1] -5.5 over Indiana [8-3-1] (W)
  • Minnesota [4-8] -2 over CLIPPERS [6-7]--LOCK (W)
  • SEATTLE [6-8] -6 over Portland [6-4] (W)
