Thursday's NBA Picks

Home Team in CAPS

Anthony's Picks

Last Night: (3-2), Week: (5-5-1)

  • PORTLAND +8 over Dallas

Dallas is playing phenomenal basketball right now, but they really have no reason to go all out every night. They've locked up the four seed and can get no higher or lower in these last few games. Look for the Mavs to come out strong but for the Blazers to make a late run to make it respectable. Portland has kept their last four contests within at least 6 points and I see no reason for things to change tonight. DAL 99, POR 94. GLTA

Paul's Picks

Last Night: (3-3), Week: (6-6-1)

  • Miami -2 over PHILADELPHIA
  • PORTLAND +8 over Dallas **Nowitzki, Finley, Dampier all out

No real rhyme or reason as to why I'm taking the Heat-- I just think they're going to come out with a vengeance after 2 ugly losses, 4 days rest, and Big Daddy back. Shaq knows now is the time he needs to put the Heat on his shoulders and carry them into the playoffs. As much as A.I. and the Sixers need this game tonight, I think they'll be overmatched in the end. Should be a great game though.
