Tuesday's Picks

Look for this guy to take off his rookie mask tonight and throw up a double-dub



December 20, 2005

Home Team in CAPS

Ant's Picks:

Last Night: (3-2) Week: (3-2); Month: (58-63); Season: (170-154)

  • CLEVELAND -8 over Utah - *Kirilenko Doubtful*
  • NEW JERSEY -3 over Clippers - *Maggette Out*
  • MIAMI -12 over Atlanta
  • Portland +13.5 over DETROIT
  • MILWAUKEE +4.5 over San Antonio - *Manu Ginobili Doubtful*
  • Charlotte +10.5 over CHICAGO - *Okafor, Rush Out, Knight Questionable*
  • PHOENIX -8.5 over Seattle
  • Dallas -2.5 over LAKERS

--With Kirilenko likely to miss the game, the Jazz have no one to stop the Cavs arsenal from putting up 100+. Should be a comfortable win. CLE 107-91

--No, New Jersey won't be able to stop Elton Brand, but with Maggette out again, the Clippers will struggle to keep up with the high-flying Nets. NJ enjoyed perhaps their best victory of the season on Sunday and I fully expect them to continue this winning streak. NJN 102-95

--The Hawks have won 4 of 5, including victories over the Spurs, Cavs, and Nuggets. The Heat, on the other hand, still don't look like the well-oiled machine they will certainly be in the 2nd half of the season. So, is there any reason to think Atlanta won't cover yet another huge spread? Not really, and that's why I'm going with the Heat. MIA 105-91

--Detroit sure is nasty at home, but after a 2-OT thriller last night in Memphis, the young Blazers should be able to keep up (for a while anyway). DET 98-90

--The bandwagon pick here is the Spurs. Losing to the Hawks and Hornets in the same week?? That's crazy. But without Manu once again, San Antonio lacks scoring punch. With just TD and Parker as the only reliable options, I just can't see the Spurs taking care of the Bucks by more than 4. SAS 97-96

--Another bandwagon pick. Okafor, Rush, and Voskuhl are out. Knight may be out again. So who does that leave? Matt Carroll? Keith Bogans? Keith Burleson (who is Nate's brother by the way)? All signs point to a Bulls' blowout, but trust me, the Ewing Theory will be severely in effect tonight. Look for Sean May to show Mike Sweetney who is the better of the big tittied youngsters. CHI 102-95

--Phoenix is due, big time. After reeling off that 9-game winning streak, the Suns have gone cold, losing 4 of 5. Tonight's the night they get back on track against a tired Sonics' squad. PHX 106-95

--Notice who's #2 in my AP Poll this week? That's right, the surging Mavs. They haven't been on the road for a week and a half, but that won't stop them from knocking off Kobe and co. DAL 104-99

Good Luck, and feel free to start posting your picks in the comments section to gear up for next week.

i disagree with you on the clippers ordeal. Brand, being so good this eyar, should step up and pick up some of the slack. livingston is looking pretty good right now and plus with kaman and brand in the post, and new jerseys sad big men, it hink the clippers can pound it inside.

and with the charlotte vs chicago. i think chicago can beat em by double digits with their best big man on offense and defense out and the guy that makes the plays ailing, sure chicago and pull if off. i think that felton will have a few mistakes tonight

am i the only one that thinks the mavs are overrated? maybe its cuz i live in dallas and im sick of hearing everyone openly express their love for the mavs. but i think that theyre too inconsistent at times and rely too heavily on dirk(whos also overrated). did you hear dirk was named one of the 60 best nba players of all time? he even beat reigning mvp steve nash.

Who's list is this? Dirk is not even close to the top 100 players of all time.

Marvin Williams playing well in quite possibly the longest mop up duty ever made the score... respectably embarassing.

I think Will was talking about a sportsticker article where the writer had his own take on the TNT's upcoming 60 best in 60 years feature at the all star break.

With Kobe outscoring the mavericks by himself and it being the end 3rd, and lakers being up by 34, I'm going to go out on a limb and say all of us were wrong =|

Reminds me of a time when i was playing NBA Live 95 and i kept shooting with David Robinson because the game was bugged and he couldn't miss from anywhere. Simply amazing. Of course this means Kobe will average 40 shots the next 5 games regardless of result.

i be the first to admit i ain't a kobe fan but what he did last night was pretty spectacular. he single handedly outscores the mavs 62-61 at the end of the third... i wish he coulda gone in to the game int he 4th just to take the lakers record he wasnt gonna touch wilt's. But in this NBA as it is now 62 points is like 100 from the wilt days in a way
