Some interesting things happening tonight and for the rest of the week. Let's see if we can get them right.

Kawhi Leonard missing for the Spurs, but Hassan Whiteside is missing for the heat. I still like Coach Pop. San Antonio by 9.

Ball's old man runs his mouth again, and "The sins of the father are visited upon the son." Gortat says it will be Hell on Ball. Washington by 11.

Celtics let a late lead slip away when the Greek Freak went off in Boston. They will be more ready in Milwaukee, but it won't be enough. Milwaukee by 4.

New Orleans injury list is almost as long as Crime and Punishment. Sacramento by 12 SLAM
