The LA Clippers once again underachieved and failed to cover against an inferior team. The Clips even had locker room material as Whiteside said that all DJ does is catch lobs. So how did Jordan respond? An underwhelming line of 12 points, 19 rebounds, no assists, 3 blocks and a +/- of -4. Wow DJ way to respond! The Clips will never be anything until they begin playing up to their potential instead of playing down to their competition.
Once again the Bulls were outmatched on the court as they couldn't solve the mystery that is the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks came out with more fire, more passion, and more fight then the reeling Bulls. Have the Bulls given up already? I see no strategy and no purpose. I think this is a throw away year that is now the D-Wade show. It's unfortunate for the fans of Chicago that they have to endure another pathetic season by this team that has completely lost their way.
The dance off between VanZant and Waterson was pretty cool. I love seeing athletes not taking themselves too seriously and just having fun.
...and I'm out.
Fight Night Tonight!
@drjayh has his picks for UFC on Fox 22. @drjayh has an overall record of 67-34 including a 38-18 H2H, and a 29-16 record in totals. Below are his picks.
Paige VanZant versus Michelle Waterson
The main event for UFC on Fox 22 features a women's Strawweight bout. If there was ever a fight where I would like both fighters to win, this would be it. These are two very likable, respectful, very good martial artists, each with the soul of the warrior. VanZant, as you may know, took a little time off from fighting to win second place on Dancing with the Stars, but has returned to the octagon for her second fight since then. Waterson "The Karate Hottie" is the former Invicta atom weight (105 lbs) champion who is now fighting in the UFC. There is a fighting saying, "All things being equal, the bigger fighter will win the fight."
Pick: Paige VanZant by submission third round.
Mickey Gall versus Sage Northcutt
Both of these up and coming fighters began their UFC careers in the Dana White TV show, Looking for a Fight, where he and his two pals search the country looking for promising fighters while having a lot of fun at the company's expense. Northcutt is a karate style fighter and as nice a guy as you would ever want to meet. Girls, this is the man you want to take home to introduce to your dad. Gall is a jujitsu style fighter and trust me, your dad will ground you if you show up with him. I've gone back and forth on this fight.
Pick: Mickey Gall by submission second round
Urijah Faber versus Brad Pickett
Two tough veterans in their going-out party.
Pick: Urijah Faber by submission (guillotine) second round
Alan Jouban versus Mike Perry
Pick: Mike Perry by decision
Takeya Mizugaki versus Eddie Wineland
Two crafty veterans
Pick: Eddie Wineland by decision
For some reason sportsplays.com isn't posting MMA lines for tonight's fights. So I'll make these picks on CaperTek.
