NBA Picks 11/14

Yesterday's picks: 7-1

I sniped that Memphis over Houston call, but wasn't man enough to feature it. It's nice to have a definitively good day again.

Today's games:

  • CHARLOTTE at Atlanta
  • INDIANA at Washington
  • Orlando at CLEVELAND
  • SEATTLE at Miami
  • New Jersey at BOSTON
  • Sacramento at MINNESOTA
  • Memphis at MILWAUKEE
  • Philadelphia at NEW ORLEANS
  • Lakers at HOUSTON
  • DETROIT at Golden State
  • New York at CLIPPERS

  • Featured game: Utah at Toronto

    Earlier this season, I was very high on Toronto. To me they looked definitively like one of the best teams in the Leastern Conference. A few losses laer, I came back down to Earth about them, but I stil think they are a dangerous squad (which is kind of a bankhanded compliment reserved for teams like Atlanta and Portland usually meaning that they will put up a fight). Utah looks as good as ever right now with Kirilenko flirting with triple doubles virtually every game again, while probably being only the third best player on the Jazz with apologies to Memhet Okur and Ronnie Brewer. Top to bottom, the Jazz might have one of the best starting fives in the Lig (Deron Williams, Ronnie Brewer, Andrei Kirilenko, Carlos Boozer, Memhet Okur), especially with Brewer establishing himself as a force to be reckoned with and a most improved player candidate. Honestly, who's is better? Probably Phoenix (Nash, Barbosa/Bell, Marion, Stoudamire, Diaw), but I don't think anyone else.
    Winner: UTAH
