Hornets and Mavs Go Over

We needed the Hornets and Mavs to score 193 points tonight. They scored 230.

The Hornets 127-103 victory in Game 2 of the series helped us even our playoff Free NBA Pick record back to 2-2, and our overall NBA Free Pick record to 42-22.

Thanks to countless buckets, including Chris Paul taking on Dirk Nowitzki for a lay-up, we're back up to .500 for the playoffs and hoping, oddly enough, to get back into regular-season form.

We tinkered with the numbers in the system a little bit prior to this game due to our concerns that, well, the last two Free NBA Pick losses were blowouts. We should be poised for a nice run with the updated stats added to the formula, so hop on and enjoy the ride.
