SportsFilter NBA Pick 'Em Week 6: Vince Carter Edition: There are only two nationally televised NBA games this week, both tonight on ESPN with a Lakers/Cavs and Thunder/Warriors doubleheader. I continue to lead the contest I am running, Georgia style, with NoMich nine back and Ufez 19 back. The three of us won the week with 34 points -- and Ufez and I got the same score on the same games. Make your picks as the NBA's oldest player needs just 13 points tonight to become the 22nd member of the 25,000-point club.
