It was an extremely light game around the sports world last night


It was an extremely light game around the sports world last night, with only the NIT championship in menís college hoops and 3 games on the NBA schedule.

My pick was as follows:
West Virginia +1 vs. Clemson
Pistons +4 at Bulls
Warriors +4 vs. Suns

In the first game, West Virginia jumped all over Clemson taking a 12 point lead into the half and holding off a late rally for a 78-73 win. Frank Young led West Virginia with 24 points and was named the tournamentís most outstanding player, in leading them to their first NIT title since 1942.

1 down, 2 to go.

In game 2, it was the Detroit Pistons visiting the Bulls in a potential playoff preview. This was a classic heavyweight battle with both teams going back and forth in a defensive struggle. The Pistons maintained a 41-38 lead at halftime. It continued close throughout the 3rd quarter but in the 4th, the Bulls pulled out a 10-0 run to give them a 12 point lead with 6 minutes remaining. The Pistons, showing the heart of a champion, fought back and tied the game on Tayshaun Princeís put back with 8.9 seconds left. Then, with 2 seconds left, Carlos Delfino inexplicable fouled Kirk Hinrich on a 3 point attempt. Hinrich made 2 of 3 to set up a final play for the Pistons but they couldnít score, meaning they lost by 2, but covered so I won making myself 2 for 2 on the night. Tayshaun Prince led the Pistons with 26 points and Ben Gordon led the Bulls with 25.

Right from the opening tip, the Warriors/ Suns game was fast paced as the Warriors raced out to an 18-6 lead after just the first 3 minutes of play. They were just hitting seemingly every shot whether it was a 3 pointer or a layup. After just 1 quarter of play, the Warriors were winning 45-33. Yes, thatís right 45-33. Thatís a halftime score in many NBA games. I was only annoyed that I didnít take the over in this game. The halftime score in this contest was 77-63 Warriors. The Suns didnít even threaten until the Warriors took their foot off the pedal in the 4th quarter as the Suns outscored the Warriors 33-15, turning a 23 point deficit into a 5 point loss. Leandro Barbosa and Marcus Banks got the Suns within 122-116 in the final two minutes, but Davis stripped the ball from Banks and drove for a layup with 58 seconds left.

It was pretty amazing that the Warriors held a double digit lead almost the entire game, the near collapse at the end notwithstanding.

Jason Richardson scored a season high 36 points and 12 rebounds for the Warriors while Steven Jackson chipped in 29 and Baron Davis added 21 points and 12 assists.

Leandro Barbosa led 6 Suns in double figures with 29 points and Steve Nash added 14 points and 9 assists, a below average game for the two-time MVP.

So I was 3 for 3 on my single bets. I also did a 3-team underdog money line parlay and had the Pistons won, it would have been a sensational night for me. Instead, Iíll settle for a solid win.

Till next time, may all your bets be winners.
