And even the Luvabulls seem to be focused!
Ok...maybe those aren't the LuvaBulls, but they should be!

TORONTO RAPTORS @ CHICAGO BULLS (OVA 211)
By the way, as u’ll read later, I’m taking the Bulls tonight too
With the Bulls abysmal season coming to an end at the United Center, I expect their game plan to match Monday’s in Milwaukee as they decided to concentrate on defending the hole as much as Tera Patrick did in the film-classic Nuttin’ Hunnies. The Bulls prevailed 151-135 in that contest, and more suprisingly, actually seemed to have some fun. With Jim Boylan coaching his final NBA game (for this team or any team), I expect him to go out with a bang and let the boys run-wild. And to tell you the truth, even if he tells them something different, as we've seen they won’t listen anyway. As for the Raptors with the playoff seedings set in the East...

Just like the point total, some things r just 2 hard 2 contain!

As for the Raptors with the playoff seedings set in the East, even though Coach Mitchell plans to rest his regulars, their bench is loaded with shooters (Kapono & Delfino) and hustling bigs (Humphries & Bargnani) who will be playing with one of the best playmakers in the game in Jose Calderon. While I still think the Bulls will win by double-digits, with the “Olay” defense they've played of late the Raptors should easily score ova 105 tonight. And finally, with Deng and Gordon combining for 61 Monday, it’s obviously which end of the court their concentrating on as they head into free agency...which is a great mindset when Greggy G's playing the OVA...Bulls/Raptors total 220-228

The Bulls in the their home-whites will be hot tonight!

TORONTO RAPTORS @ CHICAGO BULLS (-6.5)
The young Bulls have been embarrassed all season and have heard more boo-birds at home than Rex Grossman…ok, maybe not that many. But tonight, after their unbelievable shooting performance in Milwaukee combined with the Raptors having absolutely nuttin’ to play for, I fully expect the Bulls to cruise to a double-digit victory. For the first time all season, I guarantee you see the young Bulls play like they have something to prove…even though it doesn’t frickin' matter. Check out end of the bench and soon to be out-of town Chris Duhon’s numbers versus the Bucks Monday - 22 pts 15 ass, or FA’s Deng & Gordon’s 61-point outburst, or even T-Time’s production in only 18 min- 12 pts, 8 reb, 2 blks. As for the Raptors, with T.J. Ford’s creaky back, the injury-riddled Chris Bosh, and heavy minutes of late for Anthony Parker and Rasho, I can’t see how Kris Humphries, Primoz Brezec, Joey Graham, & Jason Kapono have the fire to match the Bulls 120-pt output I'm predicting tonight. And Trust me, the Bulls had a lot of fun in Milw. for the first time in a long time and will want to it again.…Bulls by 12-16 points

Just like the Sixers line, small things are easier to cover!

PHILLY 76ERS (-1) @ CHARLOTTE BOBCATS
While normally I wouldn’t play a playoff squad with nuttin’ (is that the 3rd time I've used nuttin'?) to play for against a non-playoff squad, the young Sixers have lost 3-straight and Coach Cheeks is desperate to get them back on track. Throw-in that their playing an undermanned Bobcats squad that lost in OT at NJ yesterday after leading by 20 in the 3rd quarter, and I expect Philly to breakout to big-lead early before coasting to single-digit cover with their bench. To break things down further, Charlotte’s only true scorer and highest paid player with a history of knee problems, Jason Richardson, played 46 minutes last night, while new rotation players Matt Carroll & Jared Dudley totaled 73 minutes in the absence of do-everything Gerald Wallace and combined to shoot 5-17. Trust me, my man Mo knows his youngsters need some momentum and a win...and what a perfect night to find it …Sixers by 6-10 points

turnaround.jpg
You only need to turnaround if the Mavs lose tonight!
*Only play the Nuggets if the Mavs are losing in the 4th tonight!

And finally, if the Mavericks lose tonight, the Nuggets can jump them to the 7th seed with a victory over the Grizz and will avoid playing the Lakers (The Mavs play 2 hours earlier than the Nuggets tonight). While the Mavs will probably win since the Hornets aren’t playing for anything (in that case, the Nugget game doesn’t matter), if for some reason Dallas looks like their gonna lose, bet the farm on the Nuggets to cover 16 at home against the Grizz…Holla
