NBA Pick'Em 04/19: NBA Playoffs

 

Thanks for keeping up with the Playoffs. This is an opportunity for all of us to answer that season-old question, which team is the best? Think you know who it is? That's pretty baller considering the teams we're watching day in and day out. 

April Yesterday (18th), 2017 Picks:

Bucks @ Raptors, pick Bucks, LOST
Bulls @ Celtics, pick Celtics, LOST
Jazz @ Clippers, pick Clippers, WON

Yesterday's Record: 1-2
Playoff Record: 9-4


April Today (19th), 2017 Picks:

Atlanta Hawks @ Washington Wizards

Game 1 was a sorry affair in you were looking to cheat on your wife with a 3-pointer. Both teams shot 28%, yet the Wizards scored 114 points anyway. The only reason the Hawks had the luxury of a 7-point loss is because they shot 39 FTs. The Wizards only shot 17 FTs ON THEIR HOME COURT! TAKE THAT FOR DATA! I had the data, there was no danger, and I'm taking the shot. 
Pick: Wizards

Oklahoma City Thunder @ Houston Rockets

History often repeats itself and I can see no better time than the present for that to happen tonight. Westbrook had a horrible game. Oladipo had a horrible game. Their lousy teammates? Played pretty well. I expect that to flip tonight, Westbrook and Oladipo will have bounceback games, but will it be enough to secure a Thunder victory?
Pick: Rockets

Portland Trailblazers @ Golden State Warriors

I like Lilliard and McCollum. Dudes go hard. Shit, dudes go hard. Portland is only a few pieces or a summers worth of growth from current players before becoming something again. Despite their spunk, though, they're still just the upstart short kids on the playground. The Trailblazers are the Chicken Hawk from Looney Tunes and the Warriors are Foghorn Leghorn. "Boy, I say boy. Go, I say go away boy, you bother me!"
Pick: Warriors
