I split last night, but my win was my Top Play on the Spurs. Looking for a solid night tonight.
3 UNIT PLAYS
Philadelphia/ Boston Under 172: Gotta love taking an Under in a Sixers home game. Philly home games have gone 25-11 UNDER on the year, with an average of 177.1 ppg being scored in those games. All 3 Sixers home games vs the Bulls went Under the total, with an average of just 160.3 ppg being scored. Philly has played great defense all year, especially at home where they have allowed just 85.1 ppg, while they have allowed just 80.3 ppg in their last 6 games overall. Boston has all it's parts on the floor, but Pierce and Allen are hurting so they are not at 100% and that makes it tough for this team to get out and run, so they are really relying on their defense right now and it has been good as well, as they have allowed just 88.76 ppg on the year, including allowing just 80.6 ppg in their last 10 games overall. This whole series will be a defensive battle as both teams have been known for their defense more than their offense this year. Philly has been a haven for low scoring games this year and their is another one in the offing tonight.
OKLAHOMA CITY -8 over LA Lakers: After taking care of the defending champs in 4 games the Thunder opened up their series with the Lakers by winning by 29 points. The Lakers are a tired bunch right now and the Thunder knows it, so you can expect them to keep the pace high and that will again wear this team down in the 2nd half. Oklahoma city scores 106.1 ppg at home, and will be facing a Lakers team that has allowed 105 pgg in their last 4 games and 99.6 ppg on the road this year. The Thunder will not be as pumpedd for this one as in game 1, but they have now seen Boston and Miami lose home court advantage so far in round 2 and you can bet that they will not allow that to happen here. The Lakers may stay with this team in the 1st half, but they will again tire in the 2nd half and that will lead to another easy DD win by the Thunder here.
2 UNIT PLAY
PHILADELPHIA -2 over Boston: Philadelphia is playing really well right now and they continue to surprise. Beating Boston in Boston is no easy task, but they pulled it off and now get the Celtics at home. The Sixers are playing great team basketball and have been getting contributions from many players. And their defense has been stellar, allowing just 80.7 ppg in their last 6 playoff games. Boston came into the series dinged up a bit and while pierce and Allen are playing, they are not at 100% and it hast hurt their scoring of late as the Celtics have averaged just 85.5 ppg in their last 4 games. Boston Averages just 90.8 ppg on the road, while the Sixers allow just 85.1 ppg at home. Philadelphia won all 3 home games vs Chicago and they will take their first home game with Boston as well. Looks for at least a 5 point Sixers win here.
Having some problems with my the amount of characters in my forum signature, so I will post my records in my threads for the sports they pertain to.

Agreed. OKC have the Lakers number. They got em in a sleeper hold right now and it's just a matter of time until they pass out. Pau and Bynum can discuss on the sidelines how to adjust to this all they want. I really get the impression Bynum's already thinking about the off-season. If Lakers can cover 8-7 points in any game this series I'll be very impressed.
Don't Be Stupid
Discipline, young purks. Discipline.
The Lakers tired? after the game on Wednesday they will have to play this Friday and Saturday @ Staples. I guess they will be tired until this weekend. In all seriousness, I dont buy that they are tired, they weren't as motivated to win game 1. But I believe they stay close on game 2 and cover ATS and perhaps they can win SU. Something tells me Kobe has something to show for tomorrow night. GL!
"they weren't as motivated to win game 1" brkatz could argue with you
Good luck jeff, go sixers.
