Sunday's Picks

November 27, 2005

Home Team in CAPS

Ant's Picks:

Last Night: (4-4); Week: (21-22); Season: (105-83)

  • ATLANTA -3.5 over Portland
  • Indiana -2 over LA CLIPPERS
  • New Jersey +1.5 over LA LAKERS

--It's still the Clippers guys, c'mon. Indiana got embaressed the other night and will bounce back. Good teams always do. IND 97-94

--Perhaps the only team with a worse front court than NJ is LA. That's good for the Nets who finally get a win on this western trip. NJN 96-90

Paul's Picks:

Last Night: (5-3); Week: (26-17); Season: (98-90)

  • ATLANTA -3.5 over Portland
  • CLIPPERS -2 over Indiana - *Ron Artest Probable*
  • LAKERS -1.5 over New Jersey

--Can Atlanta actually win 3 in a row? When you consider that Portland (of all teams) spent last night in every NBA players' favorite city, I think the answer is yes. ATL 93-88

--The Clippers should be favored by 3.5 or 4, which has me a little concerned, especially since Artest is expected to play. But the Clippers have bounced back from their first two losses with solid games and have literally been unbeatable at home. LAC 98-95

--The Nets are really struggling right now. I give the hometown the Lakers the edge with Lamar Odom beginning to show signs of stepping up. LAL 110-105

Boy, you guys jumped on the Hawks bandwagon a little prematurely. Ant, didn't you just say you didn't see the Hawks winning for a few more weeks? ;)

Yeah Mike, I did. Only because I didn't want to admit they were going to beat my Celtics and I couldn't foresee Artest getting hurt. But thanks for rubbing it in...
