NBA pick of the day Hawks at the Clippers
This is the unfortunate look of Blake Griffin’s brother Taylor. Not sure how he left the house like this. It’s such a ridiculous picture I had to find an excuse to get this in here. He actually played in the league for a little big. 2009 he was picked 48th overall in the NBA draft by the Suns. He never could really making out of D league with them or the Bobcats. And as far as wikipedia is concerned he is playing in Italy right now. Really would suck to be the brother of one of the best basketball players on the planet. At least one of the most fun to watch when he is healthy. I’m not sure that people remember this but Blake once jumped over a car to win a slam dunk contest. It feels like forever ago 2011.
Blake was pretty damn good in high school winning state finals all four years in high school. He didn’t really explode until his senior year where he averaged 25 – 15 – 5. Before that he only averaged 12 pts a game. Wondering why? my guess.
Now on to the game
The Hawks and the Clips are both really in the hunt right now. Both are 4 seeds in their conference, with the Clippers winning their last 3 and the Hawks winning their last 4 – 6. Could be a fun one before the All – Star break. Instead of me wanting to put a fork in my eye watching the Bulls I think it should be a fun matchup tonight Between DeAndre Jordan and Dwight Howard. The Hawks are 28-7 this year when they hit over 100 pts so that will be a stat to look at tonight. If you are going to throw money on this I would really look at the over. Both teams score a bunch and the over is set at 214. I think that being at home this one will be too tough for the Hawks to complete. All the money right now is going on the Hawks so I’m taking LA to win this one -3.
