I really need a rally here. The past few weeks have been bad.

Thursday, Feb. 20:

76ers are tough at home. Philadelphia by 13 SLAM

There is a saying that short people, Napoleon Bonaparte for example, cause a lot of trouble. Rockets seems to fit the profile. Houston by 15 SLAM

Friday, Feb. 21:

Nuggets are not usually found in oil and cattle country. Denver by 8

Lots of aquatic waterfowl on the river in Portland, but Pelicans are rare. New Orleans by 6

Saturday, Feb 22:

This should have been a big time matchup in the East, but 76ers' road record is not good. Milwaukee by 15 SLAM

Sunday, Feb.23:

Celtics destroyed Lakers in Boston when Lakers were at the tail of a long road trip. Now it's time for payback. Los Angeles (purple variety) by 6
