NBA Pick'Em 04/27: Playoffs
Thanks for choosing this article to spend a bit of your precious existence. We really do appreciate it. Does anyone know a bookie? Are you, the reader, a bookie? Because I've correctly chosen the winner of 12 NBA Playoff games in a row. I think if I were in Vegas, I might be in some suite. Or at least buying an actual New York Steak instead of the ones they serve at the strip clubs. And don't get me wrong, there are some strip clubs, especially in the Portland, OR, area, where a person can find themselves a damn-good steak while partaking in the erotic arts. And don't get me wrong, I'm not advocating nor dismissing the erotic arts, but they exist and it's rude not to acknowledge something sitting right there in front of us all.

April Today (27th), 2017 Picks:
Toronto Raptors @ Milwaukee Bucks
The Bucks only grabbed 23 rebounds in game 5. That seems misleading. Let us see, Monroe nabbed 2 boards in 22 minutes, same count as Dellavedova. The Greek Freak got his, 8 rebounds. Thon Maker was 2nd with 5 rebounds. I don't know. Where were the Bucks in this game? What a brutal learning experience. Offensively, they played pretty well, hitting 50% from the field. The Raptors played much better, seven and seven-tenths percentiles better. Guess there just wasn't enough bricks to build an igloo (Canada joke). I couldn't enjoy the theatrics of this series in entirety if the Bucks didn't show up to play today.
San Antonio Spurs @ Memphis Grizzlies
Fool me once, grindhouse, shame on you. Fool me twice, grindhouse, god damn it there goes my playoff pick'em record. The Grizzlies account for 22% of my losses this postseason. I thought they'd be a dud without Tony Allen, but it turns out they're a stud (when playing at home, in the grindhouse). As god is my witness, well, let's avoid cliches. I'm sticking to my guns, sorry. I'm going to go out on a limb and, nuts. If it ain't broke, don't fix it--wow, writing is hard. What I'm trying to say is that the Memphis Grizzlies grindhouse will be the dry-humping house tonight.
