I think I'm going to skip tomorrow's TNB on TNT and just do a preview of All-Star Weekend which I'll try and get up by Friday afternoon. Today's Picks--Denver needs to take care of these crappy teams and they fought hard to win last night in Atlanta. I'd imagine Karl gets them a little more hyped up for tonight's game and Charlotte will likely be without Okafor. Cleveland has already handled the Hawks easily 3 times, so I can see them overlooking tonight's game and saving some energy for tomorrow's TNT game in Minny. Chicago's top guns played a lot of minutes last night against the Kings and the team might be a little wiped out after flying into Toronto--go with the well-rested Raps who have been off since Sunday. Detroit is on a role, but they are back on the road, so it should be a tighter game than their last 3 20+ blowout wins. Still, I think the Pistons want to be winning the Central heading into the break, take them. Kings played hard on the road last night and aren't deep, but they really need a win and Jersey might struggle to score with Vince Carter banged up. Golden State I like right now, especially to cover these big spreads. They match up well with Seattle and should be primed to play hard in a nationally televised game. Good luck tonight--
