I thought I might have been starting to move a bit, but last week proved to be really bad. It's a long season, so they say.

San Antonio by 14 SLAM
New Orleans by 6

The latter pick has me worried, as Minnesota has some real talent. They just don't know how to put it together and play for 48 minutes yet. Blowing a 15-point lead (from the end of the 3rd quarter to mid-4th) to a 19-0 Boston run was not pretty.
