ANOTHER week, another edition of Sunday Picks. I’ve been on fire lately going 15-2 in the last fortnight and hopefully I can continue my form.
Last Week: 11-2
Indiana Pacers @ Atlanta Hawks
JEFF Teague makes his return to Atlanta as a visitor for the first time when the Hawks and Pacers clash. He and Indiana will walk away with a win too.
Verdict: Pacers W
Golden State Warriors @ New York Knicks
FOR the first time in a long time the Warriors look mortal. A date with the Knicks is just what they need.
Verdict: Warriors W

Boston Celtics @ Phoenix Suns
BOTH these teams are currently trensing in different directions. The Suns can’t keep up with Isaiah Thomas and the boys in green.
Verdict: Celtics W
Orlando Magic @ Washington Wizards
PENCIL in a cruisy win for Washington over their division rivals. Let’s move on.
Verdict: Wizards W
Utah Jazz @ Sacramento King
LATELY Utah has been stabilised by the play of George Hill. The off-season acquisition can help them cause some headaches come playoff time.
Verdict: Jazz W

New Orleans Pelicans @ Los Angeles Lakers
OUR generation’s version of the Twin Tower’s have been very unimpressive so far. The Lakers are about to feel a world of hurt when Boogie and Brow come to town.
Verdict: Pelicans W
#18 Cincinnati Bearcats @ Connecticut Huskies
SENIOR day at the Huskies home court could help to swing the momentum in their favour. A Bearcats squad that continues to out hustle the opposition won’t be intimidated though.
Verdict: Bearcats W

#21 Wichita State Shockers @ Illinois State Redbirds
TWO teams doing battle that have combined for nine losses in 65 games of basketball sounds like a good match on paper. The Missouri Valley Conference will effectively be clinched by one team here. I’m all aboard the Illinois bandwagon.
Verdict: Redbirds W
#16 Purdue Boilermakers @ Northwestern Wildcats
CALEB Swanigan is fast making a case to be named the national player of the year. 2nd in the nation in boards and with a full arsenal of offensive moves, Swanigan will need to deploy all his moves if Purdue are to overcome a hungry Northwestern team
Verdict: Boilermakers W
Minnesota Golden Gophers @ #22 Wisconsin Badgers
THE disappointing B1G conference schedule comes to a close for Wisconsin and Minnesota when they meet at the Kohl Center. Another emotional Senior Night will play a factor in the Badgers victory.
Verdict: Badgers W
