SAN ANTONIO SPURS @ PHOENIX SUNS (-6)
Because the Spurs were my only NBA loss last night, I’m sure most of you think I’m holding a grudge worse than a porn star that got some shiznit in her hair. But after thoroughly analyzing the Spurs last night, I came to a pretty obviously conclusion…they’re slower than the first girl I got lucky with! Popovich’s line-up uses a lot of Robert Horry, Brent Barry, Michael “He looks like the black-version of my great uncle” Finley & Fabio Oberto, while the great Timmy-D seems more methodical then ever and Manu “I’ve got a bigger nose than Greg Gamble” Ginobili looks a little dazed after taking the dirty forearm from Kobe. Parker is the exception in the group, but his speed is really only used on the pick-n-roll as it’s tough to have a 1 on 2, 3, or 4 break in the NBA. You know D’Antoni and Nash were licking their chops watching the contest last night, and I have no idea how the Spurs are going to slowdown Marion & Stoudemire on the break and Barbosa from anywhere on the floor. Phoenix wants to get this into a track meet early with the Spurs coming off a tough battle in Utah, so while 6 points may seem like a lot…I wouldn’t be surprised if the Suns win by 16! This is a statement game for PHX and they’ve caught the Spurs at the right time…Nash & Co. by 10-16 points
Want some more picks and pics…I know, you just want the pics…enjoy!
WASHINGTON HUSKIES (-4.5) @ ARIZONA STATE SUN DEVILS
The young Huskies are starting to find a rhythm that’s sweeter than the double-disk Biggie and Pac are making on some Caribbean Island. In their last two contests, Washington has beaten #7 Oregon by 12 and the Beavers by 17, and while the Beavers are not as good as their mascot there is a team that’s worse in the Pac-10…the Sun Devils. I know the Huskies have struggled on the road, but what better way to start looking good than against a team that’s lost 10 in-a-row, including their last contest by 24 to Arizona and at home two weeks to the same terrible Beaver team by 8…Snow Doggs by 8-14 points.
OREGON DUCKS (+9) @ UCLA BRUINS
I’m a big M*ther F*cking Ducks fan…so maybe that’s not a good reason for you to play it, but it is for me! Oregon has won 7 out of 8, with their only loss at the hands of the Washington Huskies, but in that contest they were without leader scorer Aaron Brooks (suspension). In his return in their last match (yes…I said match), the senior scored 31 points at #18 Washington State leading them to a 3-point win. As for the Bruins, they’re good...but not good enough to cover 9…Buzzer-beater by the M*ther F*ckin Ducks!
