The Say

Will we fall for Charlotte at home? They have already burnt us twice in the last week at home and coming up against the red hot Spurs, their record cant exactly give them the leg up. It will rely on if Pop wants to start resting the players or go full speed ahead to somehow catch the Warriors.

The Say

With the Nuggets having a knack to stay within games, the Cavs really need to get down to business. Only 1 game clear of the Raptors, tonight’s matchup against a lowly team should really end in a comfortable victory. Once again, check for any lineup changes prior to tip off. We are entering scheduled rest territory.

Boston got back on the winner’s list last night after dropping 4 straight and face a Magic team who just went down to Toronto. The big Vuch is still out for Orlando which suits the Celtics even more. On their day, the Magic could cause an upset but that wont be tonight.

This is a must win for Detroit. Isn’t making playoffs enough of an incentive? Also, Drummond coming up against old sparring partner Monroe. Record at home speaks for itself.

The Say

We toss the Wizards into the same boat as the Bulls, teams capable of beating the best, and losing to the worst. The Hawks have won 8 of their last 10, against some quality teams above .500. The Wizards have a 5-5 record (left to right) WLLLLLWWWW over their last 10. Too streaky for our liking.

No faith here in Washington to cause an upset in Atlanta. Atlanta get the nod.

-7.0  +16.5 217.5  203.5  109-102

The Say

The Kings take their Washington Generals defensive playbook to Chicago in the hopes of stealing a win against the unpredicta-bulls, who are 5-5 over their last 10.

Sac have been a soap opera this year, with locker room fights involving basically everybody. With the 3rd best offense in the West, and the worst defense in the league, the overs total points is always worth a look, but picking a winner in games like this are always a flip of the coin.

In saying that, the Bulls have won 3 of their last 4, and if they can get some semblance of a roster on the floor against a tired Sac team, they should get the W. Should…. (Just keep your eye on the pre-game omissions)

Best Bet: Sacramento +16.5 @1.20

Feeling Lucky: Chicago WIN @1.31 (That’s as risky as it gets.)

The Say

Golden State are 62-7 and have pulled back a gear over the last month. With only 2 more losses up their sleeve to break the season wins record, I have the feeling that they will find an extra step in coming games. They will need it against a young TWolves team who have had 3 days off, and would love nothing more than to add the Warrior’s scalp to their trophy cabinet.

The TWolves are exciting, and in a few years will break some record of their own, but it won’t be tonight, and Splash City will make it 63-7 while beating the spread.

Best Bet: Golden State -7.5 @1.45

Feeling Lucky: Golden State -11.5 @1.86

-2.0  +3.5 204.5  200.5

The Say

Memphis managed to kill parlays the world over at home with a 113-102 upset win over the Clippers last time out. Ours was one of them. That was due in no short part to Z-Bo’s first career triple double, with 28 pts, 10 rbs and 11 ast. The Grizzlies 15-19 away record is slightly better than the Sun’s woeful 12-22 home record.

Brandon Knight’s return has brought an extra gear to the Suns offense, taking them to 2 wins out of their last 3 (against the Lakers and Minnesota) so don’t read too much into that. Confident in the Memphis win here, with Z-Bo throwing his weight around against a banged up Suns outfit.

Best Bet: Memphis WIN +3.5 @1.47

Feeling Lucky: Memphis WIN @1.73
