Can’t go past Detroit at home. Although they are slumping a little, the new roster moves after the deadline should bring some new energy.

San Antonio lost to the Clippers and were pushed by the Lakers, with Phoenix a bit unpredictable here. Pop shouldn’t risk it and won’t let this game be closer than it should be.

The Say

Charlotte keep winning and have Big Al back to try and break down Brook Lopez who is on a tear. The Hornets are playing fit now and have newly traded Courtney Lee for some offense, they will be too strong.

The Say

Orlando are the favorites, just… but for Indiana who are coming off a miracle win against the Thunder, they would have to be a good thing here. Worth the risk? Plus we haven’t forgiven Orlando for their losses to Philly and Charlotte.

The Say

Both teams are on the up, with some exciting young talent. Which also means that they are up and down, and will cause problems for the tipsters. Put them both on the court together, and you may as well toss a coin.
With Gordon and Evans out for the Pelicans, and the Wolves with their own injury worries, flip that coin and walk away, don’t even bother looking at it.
