Which of the follow was the best underdog win?

1. Charlotte Bobcats beat New Orleans Hornets. (Hornet's 7-point-second-quarter didn't help).

2. Atlanta Hawks beat Toronto. (Debatable who was the underdog).

3. New Jersey Nets beat Detroit Pistons. (Iverson's first game with the Pistons).

4. Chicago Bulls beat Phoenix. (Shaq needed a rest).

5. Sacramento Kings beat Minnesota Timberwolves. (Debatable who was the underdog).

Personally, I think it was either Bulls beating the Suns or Bobcats beating the Hornets.

Yeah but they both went into the game with the same record. And I'd say Grizzlies > Golden State.

Calm down, we're only a few games in.

suns didn't have Shaq or Barnes and Nash played just 20 minutes...who was the underdog in that match? Yea. Think again.

Hornets are a popular pick for the championship and they lose to the bobcats, thats got to be it, without a doubt. I don't know if sac or minny is an underdog in that game, both are hoping they can be considered average, and ATL is undefeated, while Toronto has struggled. ATL isn't the underdog. And while Phoenix would be the favorite, with no shaq or barnes its a different game...bobcats for sure.

So, going into that match, Suns were the underdogs? If you become an underdog half-way though the game, it doesnt really count...

What about the Nets spoiling Iverson's Pistons debut?

All the hype around Iverson helping to bring Detroit the championship?

Definitly the Bobcats game. They played the Hornets very well. The Chicago/Phoenix game wasnt really an upset. The suns were not playing with two of their starters. Barnes and Shaq. IMO I dunno if Terry Porter will rest shaq that much anymore after this game.

I'd be upset if my team (a supposed championship contender) lost to a team like that.

haha so what are you saying that I am did not pick the Bulls/Suns game because Phoenix is my team? And If you didnt realize not having shaq in tonight really hurt them. But I dont blame the game on Shaq not playing tonight. I blame the team itself. The only player who played his *** off was Amare. The rest of the team looked like absolute ****. They deserved to lose that game.

You miss understood me, I didn't take notice of you being a Phoenix fan.

This season - Suns. Bulls. Underdog = Bulls.

They dont have the talent Phoenix has. I know Shaq and Barnes were out but Phoenix are contenders this season, Bulls aren't.

2 of their 5 starters were gone. Tell me again why the Suns weren't the underdogs? I'm sure the Spurs would love to tell you about that also.

:confused::confused:

We're going by a game to game basis...not a look at the entire season and the expectations. The Suns were missing 2 key starters who produce a lot leaving them undermanned in THIS GAME. Advantage = Bulls.

Suns werent the underdogs because they have the better team this season. I'm not gonna explain again. I think you just like arguing rather than seeing my reasoning.

So what if they had starters not playing? We didn't know that until the game started. They chose not to play Shaq.
