Alvin Gentry finally has his boys playing good ball. The New Orleans Pelicans I anticipate them to put together a nice run. The duo combinations they have @ PG and PF is enough to beat most teams in the NBA. Clippers have been looking very out of synch and have not been playing their best ball. Paul and Blake will try their best, but as crazy as it sounds I think Pelicans will steal this one. Either way this will be a close one.
Pelicans plus 6.5 for 2 units. GL.
I may have more picks later. Follow me on Twitter @podpicks1
@This was milhouse lol i dont talk to myself in forums thanks. I lost, i was wrong. I made the system so what does it matter if its system or otherwise? Like you think i would hide behind the system as if it makes me look less stupid? If anything making a system that decides to hammer the cowboys makes me feel even dumber

Summary: After figuring out some maturity issues, Caracter returned to Division I college hoops with a bang putting together an impressive season at UTEP. He may have jumped the gun on turning pro though from a draft standpoint as he will likely be a second-round pick, but could possibly go undrafted.
Player Comparison: Glen Davis. From a physical point of view, Davis and Caracter are very similar in that they know how to throw their body around down low while also having above average athleticism for someone their size. Both players have a nice mid-range game and if Caracter could develop into a role player like Davis has in Boston, it would be a pretty impressive accomplishment.
