I was doing great until Sunday afternoon. What looked like a tired Celtics team just couldn't keep up with the revamped Cavaliers. It didn't kill me in the standings, but it sure would have been great had it turned out the other way. For the record, I made the pick before the Cleveland Clearance, so there's that bit of consolation. The post-game ceremonies for Paul Pierce more than made up for a bad loss.

Tuesday, Feb 13:

Cavaliers are not as good as they looked on Sunday, but Thunder have not played well lately. Cleveland by 8.

Spurs by 6.

Wednesday, Feb 14:

Celtics need to hold Williams from going nuts and get a few shots to fall late in the game. Boston by 9.

It doesn't matter who holds the clipboard. Golden State by 14 SLAM

Thursday, Feb 15:

Minnesota by 11
