NBA

East final, Game 6

Pacers (+5) at Pistons: The momentum is fully with the Pistons after their convincing win last Sunday at Indy. Richard Hamilton has had the better of Reggie Miller and Ron Artest and those Wallace boys are continuing their block party. And, Detroit is unbeaten when allowing less than 70 points.

Indiana would host a Game 7 if able to extend series. Freddie Jones provided a spark in Game 5 and could be a factor. This will go down to the last shot. Like the points. INDIANA.

Last week: 0-1

Season: 34-26

NHL

Stanley Cup final, Game 5

Flames at Lightning: (A Thursday Night Special). No matter the result of Game 4, we like Tampa Bay to win at home. We’re assuming the series would be tied 2-2, but if not still like the Lightning to extend.

Tampa Bay has not lost back to back games in the playoffs and we’re still solidly behind the team with the NHL’s most exciting offense. Calgary will go as far as Jerome Iginla will carry them. Could be all the way to the Cup, but we think the Ning takes this thing. TAMPA BAY.

Last week: 0-1

Season: 30-30.
