Paul's Picks:

Last Night: (1-0), Week: (12-8)

  • New Jersey -3.5 over CHARLOTTE
  • MILWAUKEE -4 over Indiana
  • NEW ORLEANS +3 over Cleveland
  • GOLDEN STATE -4.5 over New York

A must-win game for New Jersey if they want to stay in the thick of the playoff race. I'm banking on the Nets to come through tonight after two lackluster performances in the Jerz against the Grizz and the Wolves. The Bucks are 6-1 this season when heading back home after playing at least 2 straight on the road and 21-10 when giving up less than 100 points this season. I'm going to ride this trends and go against the "team that wants it more" theory. The Cavs have lost 11 straight on the road, 9 against the line, and while I definitely think they can and really should win this game, I feel safer betting against a team that really appears as though they have little chance of turning around what's been a terrible second half of the season. The Knicks played excellent in beating the Warriors a few weeks ago, but I think GS will be looking for some retribution tonight. The Knicks' season essentially ended when they lost in Portland the other night, so it wouldn't surprise me at all to see them put forth a half-hearted effort tonight. If they do come through, give Herb Williams a lot of credit. Good luck tonight...
