On my way to Celtics vs T-Wolves. Got to make this quick.

Portland has been playing really well, but it's the Spurs in their house. San Antonio by 8.

Clippers really need to close out the regular season with a bunch of wins. Bucks are a good place to start. LA Clippers by 12. SLAM

More later.

Luckily I missed yesterdays games. I probably would've locked both the wrong way.

Enjoyed a good game at TD Garden last night. Watching Minnesota gave me a bit of insight into one of the picks for this week. I will probably get it wrong anyway, judging by what happened with my picks last night. Now to finish what I started last night.

Jazz to the home of the Rock and Roll Museum. While rock has some of its roots in jazz, the tempo won't fit the boys from Salt Lake City. Cleveland by 11. SLAM

The aforementioned T-Wolves travel from the snows of the Northeast to warmth of South Beach. Wolves don't do well prowling on the sand. Miami by 6.

Cavaliers try to impress at the home of the office supplies chain. Clippers have been disappointing of late, and will continue to be so. Cleveland by 9.

Pacers visit Toronto. They should spend their time at the Hockey all of Fame. Toronto by 14. SLAM

Warriors would like to cement the lead in the West, but Oklahoma might not be the place to do so. Maybe it is. Golden State by 8.

Here is a clash of the two great cities of either coast. Too bad the basketball team of one doesn't reflect any of this greatness. Los Angeles by 16. SLAM
