Last week was better, but I still need to put a run together.

Tuesday, Mar. 3:

Walker will play, but with restricted minutes. Smart is probable, but Tatum (illness) is out. Celtics still have enough. Boston by 9 SLAM

76ers take their abysmal road record to LA. It doesn't get any better. Los Angeles (purple) by 18 SLAM

Wednesday, Mar. 4 (Which teams will emulate the date and March 4th?):

Pacers are stumbling and heading to Bucks; not a good situation. Milwaukee by 14 SLAM

Mavericks get to behold Zion. The battle with Doncic could be epic. New Orleans by 6

Thursday, Mar. 5:

Will Doc Rivers have someone try to take out his kid? Rockets took a night off against Knicks on Monday, so they will be ready. Houston by 8

Raptors will need this one to have any success on their western swing. Toronto by 15 SLAM

Friday, Mar. 6:

Heat are riding high after knocking off the mighty Bucks. Will they be blessed in the City of Zion? New Orleans by 7

A preview of the NBA Finals? Los Angeles by 9

Saturday, Mar. 7:

76ers take their road record to San Francisco with some hope of improving it. Philadelphia by 5

Sunday, Mar. 8:

Wasn't there a sci-fi movie about a battle for LA? Which of these 2 teams is the space alien group? Los Angeles (purple) by 11

The Nets scored 51 points in the fourth to force overtime and held the Celtics to 2 points after that to win. Didn't see that coming.

Wednesday
Milwaukee by 6 (dunk). This is the first time all season the Pacers have been a double-digit underdog.
Dallas by 12 (dunk). Pelicans on the second day of a back to back.
