Thursday News and Notes

Thursday, April 27,

Your four-day pass starts out with a Wise Guy day winner (and an additional
surprise!).  We then have two NBA
including a Wise Guy
. If it were not for NHL OT or MLB extra
innings, we would never lose.  We win yet again in MLB and the NBA
Wednesday. It’s now a quiet 5-0 NBA run
while our baseball dog
domination goes back to the 80s and our Cadillac Club days.

Far from classic, yet still a great illustration how we
became the premier MLB handicapper because of our mastery of risk/return, we
split eight baseball games but win thanks to dogs barking led by Dandy Dog on Arizona.

day pass! The ENTIRE card  is just $17 at  Alternate

The Pacers’ injury toll mounted when Stephen Jackson was
added to the list of banged-up players, a list that already included Peja Stojakovic and Jamaal
Tinsley. Jackson jammed his right
pinkie while fouling out of Game 2 on Tuesday, and had X-rays taken yesterday.
The X-rays were negative and Jackson
will almost certainly play tonight, but he could not shoot yesterday in
practice and there is some worry about his level of effectiveness. “He was
really sore and couldn’t shoot the ball,” Pacers coach Rick Carlisle
said. “He’ll get treatment and we’ll see where he is. I know he’s going to
play, because he plays. But we’re concerned about it because it is his shooting
hand.” Carlisle also said Tinsley, who returned form a sore right Achilles’ tendon to play in Game
2, is very sore and is questionable for tonight. Meanwhile Stojakovic,
whose swollen right knee kept him in street clothes for Game 2, did not
practice and remains uncertain for tonight, though he claimed to “believe,” he’ll


Not too long ago, the Chicago Bulls owned the NBA’s
stingiest defense. And then, the playoffs began. A Bulls team that led the
league in field-goal percentage defense during the regular season has allowed
the Miami Heat to shoot 50.3 percent, and, no shocker, trails 2-0 as this
first-round playoff series shifts to Chicago
for Games 3 and 4 Thursday and Sunday. Center Alonzo Mourning is questionable
with a torn calf muscle—an injury he sustained in an 82-73 loss at Detroit
on March 22. Skiles expects Bulls F Malik Allen, bothered by back spasms, to be available for
Game 3.

since signing a seven-year, $93 million contract two years ago, including 19-6
this season, when his surgically repaired left knee limited him to a career-low
56 games and drove to Nuggets to hold him out of the regular season finale, as
