Not much time to get this done, so I will make tonight's picks now and get the rest later this evening.

Tuesday, Apr. 02:

The Biblical question was, "Has anything good ever come out of Nazareth?" Tonight the question is whether anything good can come out of the Lakers. Naaah. Oklahoma City by 14 SLAM

KD thinks it's good to be in 1st place. Denver would like to disappoint him. Golden State by 8

Night owl here. Just looked at the results for Tuesday, and it looks like 21 to start the week. Maybe I should quit while I'm ahead. Now for the rest of the picks.

Thursday, April 4:

Bucks and 76ers are set in their respective playoff positions, so perhaps neither team will be playing its regulars. I'll just go with the home team here. Philadelphia by 9

If the Lakers were smart, they would just forfeit this one and go out and party. The NBA frowns on that, so I guess they'll have to play. Golden State by 18 SLAM

Friday, April 5:

Celtics and Pacers are in a battle for 4th place vs 5th place in the East. Pacers are very tough at home, but Celtics play fairly well on the road. Indiana by 6

Without Nurkic Portland has a real problem. Denver still has a good shot at overtaking Warriors, so they will be playing hard. Denver by 7 SLAM

Sunday, April 7:

Thunder appear to have a playoff spot locked up, but they are tied with Spurs for 7th and have a shot at overtaking Clippers for 6th. Oklahoma City by 12

Tuesday, April 9:

With the Wizards hopelessly out of it and missing their best, this one should be an easy win for Celtics. However, lately there is no such thing as an easy win for Celtics. Boston by 9

Rockets also have playoff position in mind this week. They are only 1/2 game ahead of Trail Blazers for 4th place, and 1 1/2 games behind Nuggets for 2nd. With Thunder trying to move up, this game could be a great one. Houston by 6

Wednesday, April 10:

More playoff scrambling. Magic are 1/2 game behind Heat for the final playoff spot in the East. Hornets have slipped, and they now appear to be out of the picture, but it's possible. Orlando by 11

Things should be settled by the time Nuggets host the T-Wolves. Denver by 16 SLAM
