Saturday's Picks

March 12, 2005

Home Team in CAPS

Anthony's Picks:

Last Night: (2-1), Week: (8-6)

  • Lakers -5 over CHARLOTTE
  • Denver +8 over SAN ANTONIO
  • Memphis -2 over PORTLAND

Paul's Picks:

Last Night: (2-2), Week: (6-8)

  • Golden State [16-20-2] -3 over ATLANTA [21-17]
  • Lakers [17-16-2] -5 over CHARLOTTE [14-20-3]
  • Memphis [16-24] -2 over PORTLAND [20-18]

Atlanta hasn't won 2 straight all season and after an inspired effort in Toronto last night to win just their third road game of the season, I'd be surprised if they could pull it out tonight against a Golden State team that promises to play with a little more verve after their dreadful display against Indiana. The Lakers are playing with a sense of urgency on this road trip and realize they have to take advantage of each winnable game, thus I see Kobe and Lamar being too much for a Charlotte team that is beset by injuries right now. Portland has lost 10 straight ATS, the longest such streak this season I assume. Normally that's a sign to stay away, but Memphis is the kind of disciplined team that takes nobody lightly and will pull a win out tonight in Portland. Good luck...
