This Duo has been all smiles of late!

HOUSTON ROCKETS (+1) @ CLEVELAND CAVALIERS
The difference between the East & West can be seen in the standings of these two teams. While the Rockets have three more wins the Cavs, T-Mac and the Great Wall of Houston are tied for the 8th spot as the LeBrons would have home-court in the 1st round if the playoffs started today. As for their current skills, nobody in West is playing better ball than Houston as they’ve won 12 of their last 13 and seem to be playing with desperation knowing every loss could bounce them from the playoffs. On Cleveland’s side, most of the recent chatter has revolved around King James’s unhappiness with the roster as GM Danny Ferry seems paralyzed from some bad contracts he’s written the last few years. As for the All-Star break, T-Mac had the luxury of staying home and Yao only participated in a handful of minutes, while Mr. James was front and center carrying the East to an unexpected victory. Tonight...

I'm guessing King James might be a lil tired from this weekend!

Tonight, I look for Houston to continue their focused/balanced attacked on the road as the shorthanded Cavs (Pavlovic & Varejao-out) make LeBron even crabbier after a home defeat…Rockets by 5-9 points

Her flashy outfit must mean she likes the Flashes tonight!

KENT STATE FLASHES (-7.5) @ BUFFALO BULLS
The Golden Flashes (21-5, 10-2) have a loaded started line-up that is playing with unbelievable confidence having won their last 3 contests by double digits. As for the Bulls (8-16, 2-10), besides the fact that they have a dude named Greg Gamble on the squad, they’ve been awful and lost their last two home-bouts by more than 8 to teams with a combined conference record of 11-13. While Kent St. has a balanced attack and some nice size upfront, Buffalo lost their only true frontcourt option midway thru the season and has struggled to keep teams of the glass of a late….which is not a good sign when your shorties barely shoot 40% from the field and under 33% from behind the arc. As for the road-trip for the Flashes, last year they beat a better Bulls squad by 13 in Buffalo. Led by a veteran coach who understands the value of every win at the mid-major level come tourney time, no chance Kent St. lets-up tonight against the MAC seller-dweller (probably can tease this bad-boy with a few too)…Kent St. by 12-16 points

Top-to-Bottom, KC Rivers has the tools to get it done!

CLEMSON TIGERS (-3) @ FLORIDA ST SEMINOLES
After the expected mid-season ACC road struggles, Clemson (19-6, 7-4) has established a swagger away from Littlejon Coliseum in their last 3-road contests by barley losing at North Carolina in OT, roughing-up Virginia by 31, and beating NC State by 7 last Saturday. Sprinkle in a 15-point win at home against a solid Yellow Jackets squad, and the Tigers only trail the Blue Devils & Tar Heels in the confernce standings. Led by the inside-out play of 6-5 Jr. KC Rivers (16 ppg, 7 rpg, 44-3pt%), the frontcourt duo of So. Trevor Booker & Sr. James Mays (22 ppg, 15 rpg, 4 bpg), and a bench that has 4-legit ACC starters, and I see the Tigers with the ability to do some damage come tourney time. As for the Seminoles (14-12, 3-8), they’ve lost 5 of their last 6 and Sr. G Isaiah Swan (12 ppg, 3 rpg, 3 apg) to a torn ACL just three games ago. While their backcourt has some players, their frontcourt has been inconsistent all-year and has struggled to stay out of foul-trouble of late. In addition, Florida St. lost at Clemson by 12 in mid-January with Mr. Swan in the line-up, so I can’t see how they pull an upset with the hot-Tigers looking for some respect…Clemson by 6-10 points
