Wow, Golden State gets three TV games this week.

Tuesday
Dallas by 8. This would be the first sweep of the Spurs in Mavericks history.
L.A. Clippers by 12 (dunk). Golden State has struggled offensively and struggled defensively, but otherwise things are going well.

Still holding on to 3rd place, but not gaining any ground on the top. Tighten up the D, hit a few from the perimeter, and hope for the best.

Tuesday, Mar. 10:

Mavericks have something going on with Doncic and company, while Spurs play hard. Dallas by 9

Curry provides a spark, but there's no fuel to sustain the fire. Los Angeles (non-purple) by 11 SLAM

Wednesday, Mar. 11:

Mavericks home after travel on the second night of a back-to-back. Could be a factor against a good team like Nuggets. But then, Nuggets are also travelling for the 2nd game in 3 nights. No advantage either way. Dallas by 6

Kings shall bow down at the sight of Zion. Actually, that's nowhere in the Bi,but it sounds very prophetic. New Orleans by 8

Thursday, Mar. 12:

Celtics arrive without all of their stalwarts, but Bucks might be without the most stalwart of all. This is still a very tough call, but I have to shed some green blood here. Boston by 3

Lakers are making a very loud noise in the West. Rockets better bring hearing protection. Los Angeles (purple) by 8 SLAM

Saturday, Mar. 14:

Antetekoumpo might be back for this one. Either way, Bucks ought to be OK. Milwaukee by 14 SLAM

Sunday, Mar 15:

Blazers will be ablaze when Rockets explode upon them. Houston by 10 SLAM

Nuggets find gold in LA, but it's the Lakers' uniforms that bedazzle them. Los Angeles by 15 SLAM

Monday, Mar. 16:

Warriors go from facing the best in the East to facing the 2nd best. This is not a recipe for success. Toronto by 12 SLAM

Mavericks? Again? Los Angeles (non-purple) by 7 SLAM

Will games played in an empty arena count double?
