I had put together a post with my picks for last week while sitting in church on Christmas Eve awaiting the 3rd service (High Mass). I had worked at the first 2, and I needed to sit through one for spiritual refreshment and a change. For some unknown reason, the picks didn't get posted. Either I didn't click on the Post Comment button or the parish WiFi didn't connect (probably the former), but in review I think not posting, thus getting a zero for the week, was a bit of a Christmas gift to myself. It would have been a disaster. Let's see if we can do better this week.

Thursday, Jan. 2:

Raptors face the very hot Heat, and might become leftover Christmas turkey. Miami by 7

Looks like the Detroit engine has some damaged pistons. Los Angeles (non-purple) by 15 SLAM

Friday, Jan. 3:

76ers seem to have a few problems gelling into the team they should be, while Rockets seem to score at will. Houston by 11

Pelicans go to meet old friend Anthony while they await the impending coming of Zion. Los Angeles (purple) by 18 SLAM


Monday, Jan. 6:

(12th Day of Christmas is done; Feast of the Epiphany; Magi finally make it to Bethlehem)

Thunder rumbles in the City of Brotherly Love, but the sound is muted. Philadelphia by 9

When a Warrior attacks a King, he must strike to kill. Ain't likely to happen. Sacramento by 12 SLAM
