Revenge time for Phoenix Mercury

Phoenix Mercury – Atlanta Dream

07/30/09 ATL 106 – PHO 76

Phoenix was destroyed in Atlanta when game was broadcasted on national TV and now it’s a time for bloody revenge. Phoenix hit a top form at the end of regular season and is fighting for regular season champions name. They need to win this game to get into 1st place and all is ready for blowout:

  • Atlanta has 5th away game in a row
  • Holdsclaw (team leader) injured
  • Atlanta is playing back-to-back away games
  • Atlanta may miss playoffs if they lose tonight (smth Phoenix want to do as a part of revenge)
  • Atlanta starters played 30-36 minutes in Sacramento last night
  • For Atlanta this game is less important, because top-importance games are ahead with Connecticut (home) and Washington (away). There all will decide for this team.

Line is set according to stats and Atlanta hot run but all situational factors are against them and I expect first blow-out for Atlanta this season.

Prediction: Phoenix 106 – 89 Atlanta

Pick: Phoenix (-5) @ 1.91 Paddy Power 6/10
