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


2007-03-30

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.
