There are only four games to pick in the final week of the contest next week, so this week may be the decider. Good luck!

I posted these in the Huddle yesterday just in case I ran out of time before heading off to the Celtics vs Cleveland game tonight. The Wednesday Lenten Eucharist was brief (priest had an appointment), and something I had going on this afternoon didn't go on. I had included games from Tuesday, both of which I predicted correctly, including a SLAM, but I have deleted those. Do I get a bonus? (Is that laughter I hear?) Anyway, here are the rest of my picks for the week. Please listen carefully, options have changed.

Wednesday, April 5:

Cavaliers ride into Beantown. They have a point to prove. Despite my screaming from my balcony seat they prove it. Cleveland by 6.

Mavericks stampede to the office products corral. There they are clipped. Los Angeles Clippers by 10.

Thursday, April 6:

Second night of a back-to-back for the Celtics after a tough game against Cleveland. Cs do well in these situations. Boston by 8.

T'wolves go to Portland. This is an intriguing match up. Portland by 11.

Friday, April 7:

Hawks fly to Cleveland. Cavaliers love home cooking, and roast these birds. Cleveland by 14. SLAM

Saturday, April 8:

Doc's team hooks up with the Popovich Gang. No rest for anyone. San Antonio by 7.

Sunday, April 9:

New York is invaded by rapacious dinosaurs. The horror movie at Madison Square Garden continues. Toronto by 7.

Monday, April 10:

Washington tries out the former Fort Wayne Zollner Pistons. Detroit is not quite that old school. Washington by 12.

Rockets fly to the Bay Area. The water might make them fizzle. Golden State by 5.

Son of a gun, missed the Raptors/Knicks game while at the laundromat. Bad timing.

Give me:

WAS over DET by 16 (SLAM)
HOU over LAC by 7

Hmm the Raptors game may have started well before I posted my prediction. Feel free to scratch that one.
