Game of Jones Over/Under: Number Of Games In Stanley Cup, NBA Finals?
BOSTON (CBS) — It was an over/under Tuesday on The Adam Jones Shows’ “Game of Jones.”
In this edition, Jones and Rich Keefe go Over/Under with the following topics:
– Season batting average for Stephen Drew – .253
“You know what you’re getting out of Stephen Drew; he’s a career .264 hitter and he hit .253 last year. I guess I’ll go over, but I’m not overly concerned about his offense,” said Jones. “I think he’ll help against right-handed pitching, but the infield hasn’t been the issue for the Red Sox. It’s been their outfield.”
– Games in the Kings-Rangers Stanley Cup Final – 5.5
“I don’t think the Rangers win the series, but I give them more of a chance than a sweep or five-game series. So I’ll go over,” said Jones. “They have the goaltender playing the best. I don’t know if he’s better than Jonathan Quick, but Henrik Lundqvist has been the best goaltender in the playoffs.”
“I still think the Kings win it, but I think the Rangers make a series out of it,” Jones added.
– Games in the Spurs-Heat NBA Finals – 6.5
“I’m going to go over on that one too,” said Jones. “They went seven a year ago, the Spurs are motivated to beat Miami, and at the very least push Miami. They should have won last year in six games. I know the Heat have been on a roll all postseason, but I think this thing has seven games written all over it. I’m picking the Heat — I don’t know how you couldn’t — but I’m rooting like hell for the Spurs. It will be a good, quality seven-game series.”
– Where will UConn’s Shabazz Napier get drafted – 31st
“He’s going to get picked before 31st,” said Jones. “I still think the Bulls, and this is way higher than 31, they pick 16 and 19th, they still seem like a team that would be interested with a guy like Napier. They’ve been able to plug-in point guards, whether it was Nate Robinson or DJ Augustin, but what if they put in a quality resources to protect yourself with Derrick Rose. With two picks I wouldn’t be surprised if they rolled the dice on a guy like Napier.”
– Number of All-Stars from the Indians team in the movie Major League (from the season they showed) – 1.5
“I’m saying over,” said Jones. “I thought (Willie Mays) Hayes was, but I’m rethinking that with the slow start out of the shoot. The only other guy I can remember is Pedro Cerrano. He had a lot of home runs.”
