Monday's Picks

November 21, 2005

Home Team in CAPS

Ant's Picks:

Last Night: (5-2); Last Week: (26-25); Season: (84-61)

  • PHILADELPHIA -10 over New Orleans
  • Milwaukee -4.5 over UTAH
  • San Antonio -5 over SACRAMENTO - *Peja Stojakovic questionable*
  • New Jersey +1.5 over GOLDEN STATE

Paul's Picks:

Last Night: (2-5); Week: (28-23); Season: (72-73)

  • New Orleans +10 over PHILADELPHIA - *P.J. Brown playing; Speedy Claxton probably; J.R. Smith doubtful*
  • Milwaukee -4.5 over UTAH
  • San Antonio -5 over SACRAMENTO - *Peja Stojakovic questionable*
  • New Jersey +1.5 over GOLDEN STATE

--The Hornets ALWAYS play the 76ers tough no matter where the game is. That's usually because the Hornets have guards quick enough to keep AI in check-- the case is no different tonight. PHI 99-94

--The MIL/UTA line is awfully shady, yet there's no way I'm taking the Jazz tonight. This team flat-out sucks. If I screw this one up, then Vegas has really got my number. MIL 95-89

--Sacramento played to the wire last night in Seattle before losing. The Spurs took 3 of 4 from Sacto last year by doing a number on them defensively-- the Kings managed only 81 PPG last year against San Antonio. Look for the Spurs to wreak havoc again tonight. SAN 100-86

--This NJ/GS line is also quite a bit disconcerting-- feels like the Warriors should be favored by at least 3. The Nets have taken 5 in a row from the Warriors (4 by double-digits) and Golden State played yesterday in L.A., yet it's still difficult to envision them slipping up at The Arena against a team that hasn't traveled further than Indiana this season. I'll take New Jersey by a smidge. GS 101-100
