Joe D'Amico's NBA Game of the Month
Washington vs. Philadelphia,
01/30/2013 19:00 EDT,
Score: 84 - 92
Point Spread: +3½/+100 Washington
Today's winner is Washington over Philadelphia. This is my NBA GoM.
Washington is a different team now that John Wall is back. The Wizards have won 6 of 10 and are averaging more than 7.0 PPG in his return. They have covered 10 of their L11 and are playing solid defense. Emeka Okafor has posted 38 points and 31 boards in the L2 games against Chicago and Sacramento. Philadelphia isn't the same squad that went to the post-season a year ago. Their "D" is spotty and overall, the team will sorely miss a 100% healthy Jason Richardson (check status due to a knee injury). The 76ers have dropped 9 of their L12 SU, going 4-8 ATS. The odds makers have the wrong favorite here. Take Washington. Thank you.
