Milwaukee Bucks at Charlotte Hornets over 194½ These teams have gone under in the last two games. Both teams are going to want to win this game badly. It should be close, so stay away from the point spread. Milwaukee and Charlotte are running teams and will go to their styles for this game. Play over 194½.

Toronto Raptors —1½vs. Philadelphia 76ers: The Sixers have not come close to winning a game at Toronto this season. The match-ups, like we said before Game 1, would hurt Philadelphia. Toronto is 3-0 against the spread in this series, and I see nothing different with this game. Play Raptors —1½.

Sacramento Kings +3vs. Los Angeles Lakers: I don’t care how good the Lakers are, but winning two straight in Sacramento will nearly be impossible, just like San Antonio doing it in Dallas. Look for Sacramento to bring its ”˜A’ game. The Lakers know they really don’t need this game, and don’t want to sit around for a week, before playing San Antonio. A money line bet on the Kings would also be a good play. Play Kings +3.

Saturday’s record:1-0.
Playoff individual game record:24-19-2.
Playoff series record:7-1.
Regular season record:126-128-5.
