For Day 5's games, the best bet will be to take a Bobcat. Usually I avoid picking from the same team in consecutive games early in Round 1 to avoid running out of picks from a series (or piling up too much on the others). Looking on future Bobcats game dates, they seem to be packed with other options. Maybe a Hawk on Saturday and a Mav on Monday. Okay, a Bobcat again then.
Al Jefferson. For those who haven't picked him yet, pick him this date. He got a double-double in Game 1, and he will continue to dominate the paint against the Heat's not-so-bigs. He is still the Bobcats most consistent player.
Kemba Walker. He got 20 points in Game 1, and it's not far out to expect the same in Game 2. He is the future of Hornets basketball, and he has to show Jordan he can carry this team these playoffs. He gets my pick.
Dirk Nowitzki. That W is pronounced as a V, by the way. He got good looks in Game 1; the shots weren't just falling as they should be. Of all those who need to bounce back, he is the one most likely to do so. Not picking him yet, as I prefer the V if Dirk gets the W. Just saying :)
I will not recommend Monta Ellis on this date. It seems that the Spurs are making sure they deny him the drive and make him shoot. Maybe, you can wait until he gets some home cooking.
As for the Blazers-Rockets game, I think it took Aldridge's big game just to be able to scratch a win. The Rockets will make sure that doesn't happen again by scraping a few good looks from him.
If the Blazers win again (if!), then it's James Harden next in line.
