The Say

The 76ers have won 3 of the last 6 games but are still leading the Ben Simmons sweepstakes with the worst record in the league. “Ish-sanity” is slowly rising in Philly, giving the fans something to cheer about other than tanking.

The Hawks are coming off back to back losses to the Knicks and will look to regain some form against the worst side in history. Yep – that’s true

Korver is 11/53 over the last 5 games – 3 point comp at All-star is not looking good, wheres Afflalo?

Best Bet: Atlanta -3.5 @1.32

The Say

Rose is in? Yeah, nah? Last time we listed him as out for our post title, and were told not 15 minutes later that he, was indeed, warming up. So we will play it by ear until we know for sure. But it’s no big deal because as we said last time, it’s Jimmy’s team now, and he will decide on the outcome of games from here on in.

The Bulls are sitting pretty with a 21-12 record, and 2nd in the East behind the Cavs. But it’s matchups like these that sometimes throw a prediction into turmoil. The Bulls have been pretty reliable of late, having won 6 of the last 7. The Celtics have lost 3 of the last 4, but are playing very well on the road (10-6), especially defensively.

As much as we may seem to get on Derrick Rose about injuries, it’s only because we’re disappointed when he isn’t out there, and seeing him attack the rim frequently last time out gives us more confidence in the Bulls W.

This one is hard to pick, but the Bulls are at home, and full of confidence. Bulls in a close one.

Best Bet: Chicago -2.5 @1.71.

Feeling Lucky: Chicago -7.5 @2.33.

The Say

James Harden (28.1 ppg, 6.7 apg, 5.9 apg) is having an MVP season in any year other than this. He’s so good that fans are shining damn laser beams in his eyes while he shoots free throws. *This is not allowed and will get you ejected and banned for a year.

The Rockets have lost their last 3 at home, but are 7 of the last 10 at Toyota Center. They will play there next 7 games at home, and this is a good opportunity to start with a W.

“It’s a great opportunity for us to take care of home-court advantage,” Harden said. “We gotta focus on things we can control; our defensive togetherness, rebounding the basketball and limiting the turnovers.”

The Jazz are missing Rudy Golbert (knee), Alec Burks (leg break), Derrick Favors (back) and Dante Exum (knee). Being short handed on the road at this time of the year is tough, and the Rockets will win this one, with the only lasers coming from The Beard from long range (and probably everywhere else on the court, he basically has the Kobe 2006-07  license to shoot).
Rockets here, with confidence.

Best Bet: Houston -8.5 @1.91.

Feeling Lucky: Nope.

The Say

The Kobe tour has been derailed with the Mamba missing the last few with a shoulder complaint. With the early 2000s rivalry between the Kings and Lakers, it would be interesting to see the Sac fans applauding Bryant. Maybe Kobe will skip the game and just settle on a brunch with Rondo, who is also in doubt.

 

The Kings have had a days rest to get the double OT loss taste out of their mouths. Playing at home against another side who is hoping to secure a top 3 pick is a win.

The Gay-Cousins combo will be too much for the young and poorly coached Lakers.

Best Bet: Sacramento -5.5 @1.57.

Feeling Lucky: Sacramento -11.5 @2.36.
