A pile of picks for a snowy Thursday 

February, 11, 2010

Live from New Jersey, the snowiest place on Earth, I come to you with my Thursday night picks. I was able to take a break from shoveling the driveway for the seventh time in the past 24 hours to make my selections. I've been doing pretty well lately, but these recent blizzard conditions might have thrown me off. Here we go.

To get E.J.'s picks for seven Thursday night games, you must be an ESPN Insider.
