A busy day in the NBA, featuring 16 teams not based in Miami.
Game 2 - The Indiana Pacers will host the worse-than-expected Cleveland Cavaliers at 3PM. The Pacers are 14-1 at home, and the Cavs are 2-13 on the road. I'd say pick the Pacers and the spread in this one.
Game 3 - At 5PM, Miami's next opponent will meet the HEAT's most frequent opponent when the Warriors visit Orlando. Both teams are riding winning streaks, the Warriors have five straight, and the Magic are looking for their third in a row. Something's gotta give.
I need everyone to bet better, both offensively and defensively.
Games 6 & 7 - The Chicago Bulls, losers of 14 out of their last 20 contests, will host the Southeast Division leading Toronto Raptors at 8PM. Also on tap, NBA TV's pick of the night, where the 25-5 Thunder will play not-so-gracious host to the 24-7 Portland Trail Blazers.
Game 8 - Closing out the action will be the NBA's worst team, the Milwaukee Bucks, on the road in Los Angeles to play the Lakers at 10:30PM. Pau Gasol, who has missed the Lakers' last two games, will rejoin the team and try to stave off a season-high (low) sixth consecutive loss.
