Carnage is a word that is woefully inadequate to describe my results from last week. I'm almost afraid to continue with the picking. I'll continue while being ready to scream as I check the scores.

Tuesday, Mar 27:

Cleveland by 8
Los Angeles (San Diego transfer variety) by 12

Wednesday, Mar 28:

Utah by 9
(Picking against the Celtics has been hazardous to my standings.)

Thursday, Mar 29:

Oklahoma City by 3
Milwaukee by 6
(Because Golden State is on cruise control while nursing injuries)

Friday, Mar 30:

Cleveland by 12
Portland by 10

Sunday, Apr 1:

Houston by 14
