The Mavericks lost two games this week to flex scheduling: Dallas/Minnesota was replaced with Boston/Toronto on Friday and Dallas/Miami with Indiana/Houston on Monday. There also was a flex to replace Toronto/New York with Milwaukee/Cleveland on the same day.

Slowly crawling up the charts, and have actually achieved some measure of respectability. Perhaps this week will help things along.

The mess that is New York visits Rock City. Enjoy the museum, Knicks, the game won't be fun. Cleveland by 18 SLAM

Chris Paul might be back for Clippers. Not enough by half. Golden State by 12 SLAM

Celtics like what they have and stand pat at the deadline. Will they stay ahead of Raptors? Toronto by 3.

Spurs will try their luck in LA. Chris Paul might make a difference in this one. LA Clippers by 7

Bulls keep Jimmy Butler out of the clutches of the greedy Celtics. It works out for them in Cleveland. Chicago by 6.

The Bucks don't win any Blue Ribbon in Cleveland even when they maintain a cool head. Cleveland by 8 SLAM

Larry Bird won't listen to the siren song of his former teammate Danny Ainge. Paul George is still a Pacer, and helps his team. Indiana by 9.
