A work situation derailed my original plan for this week's pick 'em, so I've substituted four new NBA TV games.

We all picked a Golden State blowout but nobody was close enough to the actual margin of 49 to get extra points. That score is a hurting and a half.

Wishing all a happy St. Andrew's Day (patron Saint of Scotland) and a happy Barbados Independence Day (birthplace of my mother). This has nothing to do with basketball, but a bit of social intercourse (not the kind that gets you fired from a high profile job, that's a different kind of intercourse) is never bad. I will be at the Celtics vs 76ers game tonight, and I will testify to the correctness of the final result if required by any of the pick 'em contestants. Here we go:

Celtics looked a bit out of sorts against Detroit, but have had a bit of time off for practice. 76ers are now a legitimate contender, and the combination of Simmons and Embiid are formidable. Boston by 4

Portland is under-performing this season. What's up with that? Milwaukee by 10

Thunder are a bit of an enigma so far this season. They have looked like a true challenger in the West, but then have looked like an also ran. T-Wolves are strong. Minnesota by 8

If the previous pick proves to be correct, it would be a telling sign should Thunder lose in consecutive home games. They won't. Oklahoma City by 9
