SAN ANTONIO SPURS (-9.5) @ MIAMI HEAT
The defending champs have struggled with consistency, even with everybody back from the infirmary, and actually have a losing record on the road. While the postseason is their obviously specialty, Pops knows the West is much deeper this year and home-court is more important than ever. After dropping 4 of their last 7, Timmy D and the boys finally seemed to regain their killer-instinct in the 2nd half of last night’s game with the Lakers, and turned a 9-pt deficit into and an 11-point victory. Even though a back-to-back on the road is never an ATS favorite, I expect the Spurs to ride their momentum into Miami and come-out on fire tonight. Especially with Manu’s inability to join-in on the fun last night (3-16 Fgs), I look for the Argentinean to blow-up against the injury-riddled Heat. As for the Heat, at yesterday’s practice for coach LA Looks the team barely could barely muster a 2-on-2 game as D-Wade (soreness everywhere) Ricky Davis (back spasms), Udonis Haslem (chest contusion), and Daequan Cook (flu), were added to a list that already included Zo, Shaq, & Smush “I hate Female Valet Attendants” Parker. Now you may call me crazy...
Now you may call me crazy, but anybody else think the Heat may have pack-it-in this season and are looking forward to a healthy line-up next year paired with one of those fabulous freshmen (Michael Beasley, Eric Gordon, or A.J. Mayo)?...trust me, D-Wade is not going to keep heading to the hole with this team in last place. Even without my “grassy-knoll” theory, there is one match-up tonight that screams don’t worry about the points...the Tony Longoria vs the whiteboy-combo of Jason Williams & Chris “I should be a permanent D-Leager” Quinn should be really fair, right?! And even if this is a blow-out fellaz, don’t worry about a backend cover…my long-range Homeboys Ime Udoka & Matt Bonner will make sure to make Luke Jackson & Alexander Johnson foolish in the 4th quarter…Spurs by 14-18 points
DENVER PIONEERS @ FLORIDA ATLANTIC OWLS (-4.5)
After a long spiel on the last one, I’ll make this one easy for ya. While Denver is (8-9) on the season, they’re (0-6) on the road and just lost their leading scorer & rebounder in SR. David Kummer to a broken leg. As for the Owls, while their (6-11) record won’t get you excited, they’re (4-2) at home and coming off a nice 5-point victory against (12-5) North Texas. Trust me, the boys from Denver will be more excited looking for thongs on the street than playing some roundball. What else can I say, just like last night in finding Ohio easily ova Buffalo, if you look hard enough you can always find where the Vegas boys were napping…The M*tha F*ckin Owls by 8-12 points
NBA/NCAA TEASER SPECIAL
*After pushing the tease last night, I’m looking for some redemption!
NEW JERSEY NETS @ GOLDEN ST. WARRIORS (teased -5)
It’s a GST Zubaz night Homeboys! What a terrible match-up tonight for the already reeling Nets. After getting destroyed by the Kings Tuesday, you think the knees of Krabby Kidd & Carter are looking forward to running with the 27 SFs on the Warriors. Let alone, Baron Davis will be looking to prove that he’s twice the player that Mr. “My Triple-Doubles are Overrated because our frontcourt sucks and nobody else can Dribble” is. Especially with the weak bench of the Nets and the fact that their only two energy-guys (Josh Boone & Shawn Williams) will be rendered useless against Nellie’s run-n-gun style, I can’t see how this isn’t a double-digit victory…Warriors by 11-15 points
UTAH ST. AGGIES (teased -6) @ LOUISIANA TECH BULLDOGS
While some might think the (14-5, 4-0) senior-laden squad of Utah St. will be looking forward to Saturday’s tilt with 2nd place NMST, the Aggies were forced to play in the NIT last year after blowing some easy road contests, including an embarrassing 13-point loss at LTech that sent their season into a tailspin. This year, the Aggies seem much more focused, while the Bulldogs are simply horrible (3-13) and still trying to get all their newcomers adjusted. I predict a blow-out, but it never hurts when you drop a double-digit spread down to a couple 3-pointers when your teams shoots 39% from behind the arc…Aggies by 12-16 points
