  • Thursday Hoops

    Almost another sweep last night, but I'll take 3-0-1 every sindgle day of the week.Once again, I am very happy with the results and will be looking to build upon this success. As we all know, Thursday night comes bearing a light schedule with only the two TNT games. So here's what I got for Ernie, the Jet and Sir Charles...

    Dallas (+6.5) vs New Orleans -- It would be easy to pick CP3 and the Hornets in this one, especially because they are the home team and dallas is coming off a tough game against the Spurs. However, I think Mark Cuban actually motivated his team this week when he blasted them for their lack of energy and entusiasm. (I guess it really does make a dfference when the person who writes your paycheck tells you your not working hard enough) Anyways, I think Dallas is out on a mini-mission right now and finds a way to atleast cover the spread against the Hornets.

    Portland (+7) vs Denver -- Same kind of scenario as the first game. Portland is on the road, coming off a tough win against Indiana last night. However, sometihng is not clicking with Denver right now and it has been highlighted by the Carmello/ George Carl rift. The problem is sometimes these things can motivate a player and sometimes it can be a distraction. I am going to lean towards it being a distraction and watch gleefully as the Nuggets self-destruct in the 4th quarter.

    3 units ea.

    So there you have it. Looking to make it happen with two dogs tonight. Let me know what you think??
