TNT returns to action tonight after a break from last week for the NCAA’s. Before we take a quick look at tonight’s games, how’s everyone’s bracket? Notice how the women are bombing in the office pools? The lack of any major upsets this year is killing the “best looking uniform” picks. My bracket died when my darkhorse Final Four pick of Washington State lost (I watched all of one college basketball game this year, what can you expect?).
Anyway, back to tonight’s games (all times Pacific):
Detroit at Chicago (5:00 PM): Hot off Sheed’s 62-foot jump shot (I’m not calling it a heave or throw because according to the Pistons’ homers, Sheed practices that shot. In fact, didn’t Flip draw up that play in the huddle? “Sheed you come off the curl and shoot it from halfcourt! Pistons on three!”) the Pistons are hoping that win carries over tonight. The flu bug has struck the Pistons and C-Webb, Dale Davis, and Richard Hamilton could all miss this game. Normally I'd say the Pistons win easily, but now it looks like a close one... Chicago beats Detroit 96-91.
Phoenix at Golden State (7:30 PM): This one should be fun, a total non-stop track meet. Golden State is playing for their playoff lives and are pretty good home team (25-11). Having already won the Pacific Division, the Suns are fighting off a little boredom, as they're getting ready for the playoffs. As we know, there's no team in the NBA that can beat the Suns at their pace, so Phoenix beats Golden State 115-109.
