In an interview with Chad Forde, John Hollinger picked the Jazz to come out of the West to play and lose to the Celtics in the NBA finals. It's number seven on "The Dime" and about two minutes before the interview ends. http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/dailydime?page=dime
Let's recap the predictions from last night's game. Unfortunately I was correct in my win/loss predicion. As for the player predictions, I will break them down.
D-will outscored Kidd by 11 and did have 5 more assists. 9/10
Terry had 21 instead of 15, but probably didn't get frustrated as much as I thought. 6/10
Ak brought the lock-jaw down on Howard. 10/10
Booze didn't show up last night on either end of the floor 2/10
Memo is possessed and this pick was a no brainer 10/10
Overall: Here is my quote from last night "I think the Jazz will be leading in the fourth quarter, but won't win the game. The mavs are playing at a different level now that Dirk is back in the lineup. I hope the Jazz win, but I'm still not convinced that they are the road team that they we need them to be". I couldn't have been more dead on 10/10
Just for my self-esteem can get some props for the last two predictions and breakdowns...sheesh. I realize that it is finals week for a lot of you, but give Spencer some props.
Early predictions for Saturday @ home vs. Denver:
Denver will be on cloudnine for making the last playoff spot and the Jazz (especially D-Will) will be pissed as hell over the last loss. Jazz by 23.
