Home of Greggy G's 67% NBA ATS Record (...Since Monday March 24, 2008)

Devin Harris will have a field day vs Flip Murray & Travis Diener

INDIANA PACERS @ NEW JERSEY NETS (-5)
With the Nets somehow only a half game out of the final playoff spot and the Pacers coming-off a home loss last night, I see Vinsanity & RJ with little more fire in their eyes and expect them to roll out to an early lead tonight. Throw-in the worst PG situation in the league for Larry Bird’s squad (Ronald Murray & Travis Diener), especially defensively, and I see the lightning quick Devin Harris running roughshod over a squad that would've been better off signing Travis Best this off-season. As for the frontcourt, the slow-footed bigs on Indiana (Murphy, Foster, & Harrison) won’t look any faster off a back-to-back, and will be facing one of the youngest and most athletic frontcourts in the league (Josh Boone, Sean Williams, & Diop) that now has Nenad Krstic back in the mix (last gm: 22 pts & 6 reb). Just as we saw the Nets roll in Gotham by 15 Monday...

The Nets have nice combo of athleticism & size up-front

Just as we saw the Nets roll in Gotham by 15 Monday, I expect the Nets to hammer any Eastern squad out of the playoff race from here on out…Nets by 13-19 points

While the Raptors are playing for their playoff seeding, the Pistons may be holding a tryout for their bench rotation

DETROIT PISTONS @ TORONTO RAPTORS (-1)
With Detroit’s miraculous comeback against PHX Monday (OT victory) that saw Billups, Prince, & Wallace play big-time minutes in the absence of RIP (questionable), I expect a less than Pistons like performance tonight in Toronto. Especially with the Raptors desperate to get things back-on-track with Bosh back in the line-up, I expect Calderon & Ford to push the temp against Billups (45 min Monday) and let Bosh maneuver in the open court against Rasheed (39 min Monday) or McDyess. In addition, the Pistons are trying to get their bench rotation set for the playoffs, so look for Flip Saunders to continue to give exta minutes to Lindsey Hunter, who just returned from injury, and newcomer Theo Ratliff. On the Raptors side, during Bosh’s injury Jamario Moon, Anthony Parker, & Rasho Nesterovic really stepped-up their game, so expect TOR to look even better once His Boshness gets back into rhythm…Raptors by 6-10 points

Coming from DC, the Wiz kinda represent the stars & stripes!

WASHINGTON WIZARDS (-7) @ SEATTLE SUPERSONICS
While the Wiz f*cked me last night to open their West Coast trip, with the Lakers, Jazz, and a dominate home-crowd in Sac-Town on the schedule following tonight, the Wiz cannot afford to come-out sluggish in Seattle. Last night, Butler & Jamison shot a combined 9-33 and know a playoff match-up with Detroit could be their destiny if they don’t right-the-ship against the Sonics. Speaking of Durant’s squad, while they beat Portland at home Monday, the rookie lead squad hasn’t won back-to-back games since mid-December and will be playing without Chris Wilcox and probably Earl Watson tonight. And with a rookie (Green or Durant) guarding Butler and Nick Collison checking Jamison, my guess is we see these two combine for at least 50 and a double-digit win…The Bullets by 11-15 points

This Teaser is guaranteed to make you smile

PHOENIX SUNS @ BOSTON CELTICS (teased to -2.5)
My guess is the Celts lost to the 76ers Monday cause they were thinking about Stevie Nash & the Suns coming to town for an ESPN showdown. Combining Boston's home-court with their favorable match-ups (Rando's D on Nash, Garnett's passion on Amare, & Paulie's one-on-one strength against Grant), I expect the Celts to handle a Suns team that lost a devistating OT match against the Pistons Monday where Shaq, Hill, Nash, & Amare all played more than 40 minutes...Boston wins by more than 5

INDIANA PACERS @ NEW JERSEY NETS (teased to -1)
No Frickin' way the Nets lose at home with the playoffs on the line and the joke that is the Indiana Pacers in-town...NJ by lots
