NBA Pickem Week 21: Respect Rudy Gobert Edition: There are 12 national NBA games on tap this week, beginning Tuesday night with a TNT doubleheader of Pelicans/Grizzies and Clippers/Warriors, then stretching all the way to a rare Monday night doubleheader on ESPN. I'm still in first place by 50 but NoMich cut my lead by almost as many points (37) as I scored (39). JJzucal wins the week with 112. Make your picks and show some love for the king of paint.

Only four weeks left in the season after this one. I'm as nervous as a team exec who bet his future on Ben Simmons.

Looking at last week's results, I was patting myself on the back for those 77 points, but then saw scooby's 80. Congrats, guy. Nice score. Then I get down to jj's score. Wha??!! 112?! Nice job!

Got cold feet on the Mavs beating the Celtics on the road while they're on a five-game winning streak.
