Happy Mothers Day

Hey Happy Mothers Day to all the mothers playing here in Drive To The Finals, and to all the mothers in your life as well. May their day be free of headache from us hehe! Behave, kids!

So what happened earlier? The Nets won Game 3 and are now 1-2. The Blazers meanwhile lost theirs and thus are now in the brink of elimination. There is no question that our Monday's pick should be a Blazer. Whether it is a hot pick or not, it doesn't matter on Monday. You have to pick your best remaining Blazer from (in order of average PRA) LaMarcus Aldridge, Damian Lillard and Nicolas Batum. If you still have someone from that trio, make the pick. It doesn't matter who will perform better or not, there will be none of those tricks and manoeuvring. Pick that Blazer!


Unfortunately for me I already used all three, and Wesley Matthews and Robin Lopez's PRAs are sub-20. So I am making my first (and seemed like over-delayed) pick from the Nets. Joe Johnson, welcome back to my frontline.


Then Deron Williams in Game 5.

I'm serious, tell your mother I greeted her on Happy Mothers Day. Just tell her it's the guy from "Planet 123".

Alright, tell me why your mother is better than other mothers...

    1. I thought of changing to Beal coz of this, but treatment at home is the best he can get. Game 5 is on road

  3. I've still got Batum, so he is a very easy pick to make for me. Not sure if he can keep up his recent hot streak, but I can only hope. Hope that series goes five game. A six or seven game Nets series will be devastating. My Net well will dry up quickly after Joe Johnson. Might have to resort to a Livingston or, ugh, Kevin Garnett.

  4. I'm still going to wait and let the WAS IND series play out before I choose a player from either team at this time. I only have Beal Ariza and Gortat left and for IND Stephenson and West.
    .....Who are you taking Taong? ha just kidding
    I'm taking Chris Paul today..
    .....Looking forward to another high PRA and a loss for LAC.
    For Monday's games I'm looking to take either D. Williams or either Lopez and Matthews.....
    .......................................Thunder up!!

    Happy mothers day to all of your mothers...

  5. 33 from Lillard which was pretty good considering how bad his shooting was not to mention he's struggling badly in this series, spurs are giving him a tough time. Surprisingly it's his highest pra this series so far.

    Anyway like i said last game between OKC and Clippers would show me who will win this series. Clippers are improved but they don't play defense when they should they play it when they want and that's the difference between the 2 teams and why OKC will go through.

    That leads me to my pick, I'm going CP3 because they need to win and Griffin I'm saving for the elimination game. Hopefully Clippers lose again because Pacers and Wizards are causing problems with so many picks on both their teams which will make it impossible to pick them all.

  6. Going with Blake Griffin today in a home game, as he seems to do his best work at home. Hopefully he has another 46+ PRA game in him. Still concerned that the Clippers could tie this up today at 2-2, which would eventually be a problem using Blake too early. But the other series is a mess, and I don't have much to pick from the Pacers anyway. And after that last game, I have little confidence in Washington moving into the next round, even if they do win today.

  9. Wanted to change to Beal but may be too late. Deadline to pick just passed. PG will always guard Beal so Game 4 and 5 is no different. While Wall indeed needs more time for that eye and Game 5 will be farther off good for his eye than Game 4.

    4. Must be.

      Hasn't really put up great numbers in these playoffs and seems like everyone has been looking for him to be the All-Star he ought to be

  10. Hard to play this game while going biased for your team, which in my case happens to be my portland trail blazers. Havent picked a single blazer because of my biases of them going deeper into the playoffs lol, but i guess now its time i start looking long term at PRA i could potentially lose so now im faced with a tough decision my fandom and my guts are telling me that blazers will win the next game and like you have noted before LA does better in Texas most of the time so I'm thinking about using Damian tomorrow i think he'll have one last big one to show Tony parker off at home. Then use LA in san antonio and go from there or should i go ahead with LA on monday and not risk it?? Decisions decisions... thoughts?
