Wednesday's NBA Picks

March 23, 2005

Home Team in CAPS


Last Night: (2-2), Week: (3-3)

  • Boston pk over NEW YORK
  • New Orleans +9.5 over MINNESOTA
  • PHILADELPHIA -2.5 over Detroit
  • GOLDEN STATE -3 over Dallas
I'll be honest, I don't feel great with any of these games, but I'm going with them anyway. I finally get to watch the Celts, so I have to take them. I think they can take care of the Knicks as they have in their previous 3 meetings this year. BOS 104, NYK98. Minny can't beat anyone by more than 9 no matter who they're playing. MIN 97, NO 93. Detroit's offense flows through Rip Hamilton and with him out again tonight, they'll look a bit lost like they did last night in Cleveland. Philly seems to have it every other game, so tonights one where they should all be on the same page. PHI 98, DET 94. Finally, I'm going to continue to ride the Warriors as long as they stay hot. JRich should be back tonight and that means a game in the 100s. GS 112, DAL 108. GLTA



Last Night: (2-2), Week: (3-3)

  • San Antonio -3.5 over INDIANA
  • Chicago +3.5 over TORONTO
  • New Orleans +9.5 over MINNESOTA

At first though you would probably think the Pacers are still a quality basketball team that will hang on to a playoff spot in the East. Wrong. Indy is just 5-7 in its past 12 games, having played just 3 +.500 teams in that span and losing to each one of them handily (Cle, Den, Sea). Don't sleep on the Spurs because of a lackluster second half the other night at MSG-- they should bounce back with a respectable showing tonight. Chicago hasn't yet lost to Toronto in the Scott Skiles era and won't tonight either as the Raps continue their woes against top defensive teams. And the Wolves have won by double-digits just once in over a month, and only 3 times in all of 2005 (By 10, 11, and 17)--look for NO to cover this line .
