We got burned by the Sacramento Kings yesterday when they decided to blow a big lead in the second half and not close the game out in the fourth quarter. Lesson learned. This time we'll go with the over, as it's quite clear both teams don't care much about defense and are more interested in putting on a show for fans who don't usually get to see NBA teams live. Almost like the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees series across the pond earlier this year. Give me the over.
