Greggy G’s 2008 MLB: 3-0 ATS – NBA Playoffs: 1-0 ATS

Trust me, Mr. Stack will be attacking the cup 2night...

Cause the vet has too many options in his bag 'o tricks!

While nobody in the league has been able to contain CP3, well…besides maybe Devin Harris, I still feel the Mavs have too many passionate scoring veterans to let this thing head to Dallas 0-2. Besides the bionic-kneed German, nobody shot the ball well for Avery in Game One, and I expect guys like Jerry Stackhouse & Josh Howard (combined 6-25 Fgs) to try to get things going at the charity-stripe early in the contest. With Peja forced to guard one of them, look for them to play off Dirk in the high-post and create isolations either on the shallow wing or extended block. In addition, with Chandler & West’s mobility off the pick-n-roll, look for the Mavs to counter with more pairings of Bass & Dirk than Dampier & Dirk, which in-turn should give them another scoring option and more loose-ball opportunities. Since Jason Kidd has not shown the ability to slow Chris Paul in any way, I also expect Avery to counter with more minutes for Jason Terry at the point. If Joumana’s punching-bag is gonna let the Wake Forest Wonder drop 35 pts & 10 assists...

The Mavs have 3 solid scoring options 2 work with!

If Joumana’s punching-bag is gonna let the Wake Forest Wonder drop 35 pts & 10 assists, you might as well have the streaky-shooting JT play his lousy D and at least limit the Hornets ability to sag onto the Stackhouse/Howard Iso’s at the other end. Overall, I just expect Dallas to call-on their playoff experience and force the issue at both ends tonight…which means a huge FT advantage and plenty of hard fouls on Mr. Paul…Mavs by 2-6 points

Check back after 4:20 for my baseball ATS play...
...I'm looking for new bathing suit for this summer!

Smoltz wearing the white button-down may not look this good...but it does warrant a casual investment!

I've been riding the Happy Train with Grandpa Cox the last week or so and expect another easy victory with Cy Smoltz (3-0, 0.56) heading to the mound after averaging only a lil' ova 80 pitches per outing this season. As for the Nats...their the FRICKIN' NATS! And on the mound for the DC, the young John Lannon (0-2, 4.86) who just faced ATL less than 10 days ago at home and allowed 9 hits & 6 runs in only 4 innings. Tonight, he faces a much hotter batch of bats and will be pitching on the road...which means Grandpa's boys win by more than 3 tonight
