Not too bad a week. Nailing the spread on the Lakers helped much. It's still too early to be picking SLAM dunks, but it's becoming more attractive. We'll see how it goes.

Wednesday, Nov. 13:

Clippers have been doing well without Paul George, and he might be back this week. Not for this one, first of a back-to-back, but Doc thinks the Rockets might be beatable anyway. Los Angeles (non-purple) by 7

OK, I'm tempted. Warriors without Curry just don't measure up to the Lakers. Los Angeles (purple) by 14 SLAM

Thursday, Nov. 14:

My son and I watched the Mavericks lose to the Celtics last night. Doncic is excellent, but good defense will stop Porzingis. Oh, they're playing the Knicks? Dallas by 8

Kyrie has been carrying the Nets so far. Holding them up against the Nuggets will be some heavy lifting. Denver by 11

Friday, Nov. 15:

Jazz in the city that claims to be the birthplace of the blues will not feel sad. Utah by 14 SLAM

Celtics couldn't shake a stubborn Mavericks team until the middle of the 4th quarter last night. They seemed to be looking for someone to step up in Hayward's place. Walker took charge to blow it open. Coach Stevens was able to get some minutes for the end of the bench guys, and they helped out. Boston by 6

You must be glad you missed. How are they losing these games?
