Picks must be submitted in this discussion before the game's tipoff. So if you miss Tuesday games you can still choose the games for the rest of the week.

Slowly we crawl toward the door from the cellar. With a limited number of picks we likely won't make it out of the Costanza position this week, but perhaps we can close a little bit. Neither game looks to be so predictable to select as a slam. We'll just take them on their merit and hope we are right.

In their usual style, Celtics keep it close, but in the end... Cleveland by 6
Dallas seems to be a bit underachieving, and Lakers are a talented but young team. Dallas by 8.
