Las Vegas - Thinking about bouncing down to the Orlando bubble and trying the Mavericks -5 points over the Kings. The Mavs are sitting in the 7th slot at the moment, well ahead of the 8th seed Memphis, but could jump up a few spots if they string together a couple of wins. Did a deep dive on their entire season and noticed that Dallas has NOT lost three in a row. NOT ONCE! In the last game, a loss to the Suns, Luka went OFF for 40 points with Kristaps Porzingis dropping 30. Now they need one more player to step up, maybe Tim Hardaway Jr., and a W would be a piece of cake. The last time these teams met, in Dallas, the Mavs blew the Kings away, 130-111. Luka had 33, Kristaps 27, but Hardaway contributed 19 points, and Steph's little brother Seth dropped 18. Sac-Town has lost both games since the restart, 129-120 to the Spurs and 132-116 to the Magic. Love Mark Cuban, but only like the Mavs as a medium play this afternoon.

On the baseball board, gonna look up North to Minnesota, and if Jose Berrios or Rich Hill start for the Twins, then we're dropping a handful of chips. Either guy is worth some change.
