Please doublecheck your scores. I'm working on a MacBook for the first time in my life and my fingers are all thumbs.

hey rcade - I had a lock on the Sunday Philly game that didn't make it to the scoreboard, so should have an extra 5 points.

Double, double, toil and trouble Cauldron burn and cauldron bubble

Pardon the Macbeth, but all is not well in the land of the Green. The portents auger ill for a team that many touted as the favored one. So they do for the Spofite who favors the Green more than any other and who seems slowly to be sliding down the ladder. Time to do better.

Tuesday, Feb 12:

No Kyrie Irving tonight and a locker room that "isn't having fun" bode ill for the Celtics. They have overcome adversity in the past, but sadly not tonight Philadelphia by 12

Jazz can't make music when the Warriors are ballin'. Golden State by 9

Wednesday, Feb 13:

Beware of Greeks hosting bearded ones, but the only wooden thing here is the floor Minnesota by 11

Warriors on the second night of a back-to-back with travel might have a bit of trouble. Trail Blazers are no pushover. Portland by 4

Thursday, Feb 14:

How much love, in terms of AD's minutes, does the Pelicans' ownership show the fans? My guess is the minimum necessary to avoid heavy fines from the league. Oklahoma City by 9 SLAM

Can someone take a look at bender's financial records and check his emails and messages for contact with Oklahoma City and New Orleans?

HA! I didn't notice his pick for this game until you pointed it out. Drinks are on bender!
