New Orleans +11.5 eh ??
Thing that jumps outta the page at me is how GREAT a bench NO have...This team also has great size advantage and athleticism to go with that size, especially with Stiemsma back in the line-up..
Today New Orleans look like the team it was designed to be and along with their size, bench and ability to play well on back-to-backers the stars are also lining up with the referees..All three referees are hugely advantageous to NO (as indicated by the ref stats..)
If Jrue and Eric Gordon play to their averages, the Pacers will really have their hands full here..Even though NO got the win last night it looks like these two guys were looking ahead to today's tilt so I look for a bounce back game from them...They both play well vs Indy anyways..
Definitely going with NO +11.5 but also like NO on the M/L for the upset..GL
