You can see the week 15 results here. Ufez held on to first, NoMich narrowed the lead and Scooby won another week with 65.

I didn't really pick New Orleans. I needed at least one pick to make the page layout work, so I made a losing prediction.

I'm just back from casting my vote in the NH Primary. Now I can cast my votes for whom I think will be the winners on the hardwood. My pick 'em game is way off; I've got to get better.

Tuesday, Feb. 11

Things have been said by at least one 76er that all is not sweetness and harmony in the Philadelphia locker room. Nonetheless, there is way too much talent there to dismiss. Los Angeles (Non purple) by 8

Celtics have been battling injury problems, but have persevered, winning 7 straight. Jaylen Brown, for one, was working on an injured ankle, and then rolled the other. He now says that he doesn't know which side to limp on. Meantime, watch to see if Marcus Smart can get inside James Harden's head again. Boston can match Houston's small ball lineup with one of their own, and still have a height advantage at most of the positions. If Celtics want, they can also go big at center with Kanter. This will be a fun one to watch. Boston by 11

Wednesday, Feb. 12:

Pacers have their man back in action, but Bucks have a great road record. Milwaukee by 9

Lakers have been playing below their potential for some time now. Is it pre-All Star game fatigue, or is there a fundamental flaw? Denver by 12

Thursday, Feb. 13:

Doc Rivers returns to the scene of his triumphs, and he will get his usual warm greeting (no kidding, Celtics fans remember the good things and always applaud Doc). He brings with him a very tough team. Both teams will have traveled to this one. I will be there to watch. Boston by 6

Philly by 4
Boston by 6 (can I just say how much I hate picking Rockets games? There's just no telling which team is going to show up)
