NEW YORK KNICKS @ WASHINGTON WIZARDS (-6.5)
The Wiz pissed away a 10 point lead at Atlanta as they lazily thought they could sleepwalk to a victory with Joe Johnson and Marvin Williams out. With Miami flying up the standing (only 2.5 games back), Hibachi, Caron, and Jamison know they need to get this thing back on track. While the Knicks have played better of late, mostly at home, they don’t have the fire-power with Jamal Crawford out to keep-up with the high-scoring Wiz and I can’t believe Starbury will continue to shoot over 60% from downtown as he has the last few…Washington by 10-16 points
NEW JERSEY NETS @ SAN ANTONIO SPURS (-11)
The Spurs have been blowing people out lately and shouldn’t have any trouble with the undermanned Nets. Kidd, Carter, & their left-over crew of NBDL ballers got blow-out by the Rockets last night and I expect the same tonight. The Jersey boyz have nothing down-low and should have all kinds of trouble trying to stop the new and improved Timmy D…Spurs by 14-20 points.
USC TROJANS vs OREGON DUCKS (+1)
I loved the Ducks early in the year, but a mid-season funk had them barely cracking the top-25 and dropping their line in Vegas. Luckily for us, the yellow & green kids have found a sick rhythm and have been absolutely ballin’ people in the Pac-10 tourney (Arizona by 19, California by 18). As for Trojans, they’ve been better than advertised this season, but have struggled with consistency as plenty of freshman make-up the roster. They always say it’s tough to beat a team 3 times in-a-row, and I think that will come to fruition as the Ducks have lost to USC by 2 and 3 points respectively this year…Ducks by 4-10 points
