    Closing act: An uncertain future looms for college hoops
    April 2, 2018


    SAN ANTONIO (AP) For the past three weeks, it's been all about buzzer-beaters, bracket-busters and basketball - a much-needed reminder about just how beautiful this game can be.

    For the next six months, it will be all about ugliness and uncertainty, while college basketball wrestles with the changes it must make to keep the sport alive.

    The 2017-18 campaign could very well be remembered as the season that ridded the upper echelon of college hoops of any last whiffs of the notion that it is all about amateurs, ''student-athletes'' and playing for nothing more than a scholarship and pride.

    An FBI investigation that resulted in the September arrests of 10 agents, coaches and businessmen with basketball ties did what the NCAA never really could - laid bare the inner-workings of a shady, money-grubbing business that's been teetering on the edge of the rulebook, and the law, for decades.

    ''The state of the game, there's no doubt, there's some question marks now,'' Kansas State coach Bruce Weber said.

    Between the FBI probe and other media reports, violations have been alleged at 28 schools, ranging from businessmen taking recruits' parents out to lunch to $100,000 payoffs to get them to sign with certain programs; 17 of those teams were in the March Madness bracket. A panel led by Condoleezza Rice is examining the problems and is expected to release a report, and its recommendations, on April 25.

    The president of the NCAA has promised action , but said he would not support anything truly game-changing - as in, rules that would fundamentally alter the amateur status of the ''student-athletes'' whose efforts are the underpinnings of the $1.1 billion the NCAA earned in 2017. The lion's share of that comes from the men's basketball tournament that brought Villanova and Michigan to Monday night's final.

    More significant change might have to come from the NBA, which is considering ending the "one and done" rule that calls for players to either be 19 or complete at least one year in college before becoming eligible for the draft.

    Passed in 2005, that rule altered the landscape of college basketball, putting the lie to the notion that these players - at least the very best ones - come to school to earn a degree. ''One and Done'' is often derided as the catchall explanation for everything bad about the college game.

    Changing the rule, however, won't necessarily change the roles of agents, AAU coaches, college coaches, middlemen, handlers and shoe companies, all of whom partake in what is essentially an unregulated, underground talent-acquisition business, the likes of which the NCAA hasn't the resources or rulebook to control.

    ''Any time there's money involved, isn't there always corruption?'' West Virginia coach Bob Huggins asked, rhetorically. ''We'll have to wait and see how widespread it is. If that's it, and you see it's only four (coaches) who were guilty, that's pretty good.''

    But Huggins, like most coaches The Associated Press talked to last week, says he has no idea what to expect.

    ''Nothing personal, but I'm the wrong person to ask,'' said Andy Enfield, the coach of Southern California, which fired associate coach Tony Bland after he was arrested in the FBI probe, accused of accepting $13,000 for steering two players to specific business representatives. Bland has pleaded not guilty.

    At risk are college basketball and, most notably, the future of a tournament that shows, time and again, exactly why the sport is worth saving.

    The MVP award for this year's tournament may as well have gone to a 98-year-old nun, Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt , who willed her underdog team from Loyola-Chicago all the way to the Final Four as an 11th seed, while reminding fans that basketball, like life, is about more than mere winning and losing.

    The Ramblers weren't the only underdog to come up big.

    A tournament turned upside-down featured the first-ever 16 vs. 1 upset when Maryland-Baltimore County knocked off Virginia.

    ''A heck of a season,'' said Virginia's coach, Tony Bennett, ''with a heck of a loss at the end, of course.''

    Like the UMBC-Virginia game, the best of the tournament is often centered around upsets.

    It brings about an uncomfortable paradox: These three weeks invariably place a few spunky little-guy teams that presumably do things the right way against a few fearsome behemoth programs that presumably don't. It's the reason we watch.

    Yes, the sport is overdue for a good scrubbing. But if, someday, everyone really is playing by the same rules, will that ruin the event we love?

    Michigan, Villanova bring wild NCAA Tournament to a close
    April 2, 2018

    SAN ANTONIO (AP) College basketball's wild 2017-18 ride ends in San Antonio, where Villanova meets Michigan in the national championship game of the NCAA Tournament.

    The Wildcats are playing for their second title in three years under coach Jay Wright. The Wolverines are vying for their first championship since 1989 and to make up for the one coach John Beilein lost in 2013, at least a little.

    This meeting on Monday night will come down to strength against strength.

    Villanova is one of the greatest 3-point shooting teams in college basketball history, breaking season and NCAA Tournament records. The Wildcats blasted Kansas in the national semifinals, hitting a record 18 from beyond the arc.

    Michigan rode its defense into the title game. The Wolverines are the nation's third-most efficient team on defense and one of the best at defending the 3-point line.

    Monday's Best Bet
    April 2, 2018


    Monday's NCAA Championship Best Bet

    Michigan Wolverines vs. Villanova Wildcats - (TBS, 9:20 p.m. ET)


    The insanity that was the 2018 NCAA Tournament has led us to a championship game that pits a #1 seed vs a #3 seed, a relatively “normal” matchup and has the #1 coming in as heavy favorites. Without question, Villanova has looked like the team to beat all tournament and now they are one win away from winning their second national title in the last three years.

    That's quite a feat for Jay Wright's program, but the Michigan program has been in this situation before back in the early 90's. The program many are counting out and up against a basketball blue blood in the nation. Those early 90's championship games didn't exactly work out in Michigan's favor though. Will tonight's?

    Villanova (-7); Total set at 144.5

    Villanova enters the national championship game on a 10-game winning streak, with the last nine of those wins coming by double digits. The way this team has been playing they definitely deserve to be laying a healthy number like -7, but I'm no rush to lay it.

    Championship nerves and the likelihood we see the Wildcats regress rather largely from the shooting clinic they put on Saturday night against Kansas has made covering this number much tougher then many may believe tonight. That being said, I'm in no hurry to take the points with Michigan either.

    Michigan has won 14 games in a row entering the title game tonight and know the task in front of them is going to be challenging. Nobody in this tournament has really figured out how to slow down this Villanova Wildcats attack so far, and while Michigan does pride itself on it's defense, that unit is going to have to be lights out tonight.

    The higher scoring this game gets, the likelihood that Villanova walks off the court as national champions increases dramatically. So while some are saying Michigan's got to be ultra-aggressive early and attack pace with pace tonight, don't expect that to be the case for Michigan to try and find success. After all, they do have “time” on their side when it comes to slowing down the Villanova attack. Let me explain:

    Villanova, for all their greatness this year has shown a disparaging trend when it comes to quick turnaround games all year. It's not often that college teams play off just a single day (or less) of rest outside of early season and late season tournaments, but it's precisely that lack of rest that has hurt Villanova's shooting percentage clip all year.

    Let's look at the NCAA Tournament to start. Villanova has won five games so far, three of which were their first game of a weekend/round. They scored 87 points on 59.6% shooting against #16 Radford in Round 1, only to see that shooting percentage drop to 39.7% two days later in a 81-58 win over Alabama.

    Fast forward a week to Villanova's Sweet 16 game against West Virginia (off multiple days of rest), and you'll see that Villanova scored 90 points on 50% shooting in the victory. But just two days later they shot a dismal 33.3% from the floor in a 71-59 win over Texas Tech in the Elite Eight.

    I don't know if it's fatigue or what, but after shooting the lights out to the tune of 55.4% and making a record 18 three-pointers against Kansas on Saturday, history suggests that just 48 hours later we should expect a massive drop off in FG percentage from Villanova again tonight.

    This isn't the first time it's happened this year either, as in Villanova's three Big East tournament games (all played on successive days), they scored fewer points each time and went from 56.9% from the floor to 47.5% to 43.8% from the floor in the championship game. It's a pattern that can't be ignored tonight, especially against a team that's got a talented defensive system like the Michigan Wolverines.

    Yet, the problem for Michigan still remains despite all that. Yes, Villanova's shooting percentage is likely to come down big time based on the minimal rest they've gotten and past performances in similar situations, but the Wildcats have still won most of those games by double digits.

    It's Villanova's defense that get overlooked tremendously amid all their scoring talent, but it's that same defense that has held strong in Villanova's poor shooting games to come home with easy wins. It's why even knowing that Villanova's offense won't connect at a high clip tonight, still makes it rather tough to take all those points with Michigan.

    That's why I'm going to the total tonight and playing the low side of this number in a big way. Championship games always bring some nerves and a few minutes of settling in early (a good thing for 'under' plays), and with Villanova's offensive struggles on short rest in the past, Michigan will be content with their chances if this game turns into a race to 70.

    Neither of these teams have played consecutive 'overs' in this tournament (Villanova is coming off an 'over' in the Final Four), and Michigan's only 'over' ticket that got cashed this tournament was wen they shot the lights out from distance against Texas A&M last week. That's not going to happen against this stingy Villanova defense.

    So if forced to take a position on the side in this game, I'd tell you that Villanova wins SU but probably doesn't cover, but I do believe the total is the much better play from both a value standpoint and bigger margin of error possible. For all the pregame storylines about both teams being great shooting from beyond the arc, it will be the defenses from both sides that becomes the story of this game as it goes on, with something like a 70-66 win for Villanova.

    NCAA Latest: Villanova-Michigan title game all about the 3s
    April 2, 2018


    SAN ANTONIO (AP) The Latest on the championship game of the NCAA Tournament (all times local):

    12:40 p.m.

    There's a reason so much of the talk surrounding the NCAA Tournament championship game is about 3-pointers.

    Villanova is commanding that by making its case as the greatest 3-point shooting team in college history.

    The Wildcats set a Final Four record with 18 3-pointers against Kansas to get to the title game against Michigan on Monday night. Villanova (35-4) also has 454 3-pointers this season and 66 during the NCAA Tournament, both records.

    The Wildcats use a motion offense and can shoot 3s from every position.

    Michigan's goal will be to get Villanova away from the 3-point line and redirect shots. The Wolverines have been effective at both against other teams this season.

    ---

    11:30 a.m.

    College basketball's wild 2017-18 ride ends in San Antonio, where Villanova meets Michigan in the national championship game of the NCAA Tournament.

    The Wildcats are playing for their second title in three years under coach Jay Wright. The Wolverines are vying for their first championship since 1989 and to make up for the one coach John Beilein lost in 2013, at least a little.

    This meeting on Monday night will come down to strength against strength.

    Villanova is one of the greatest 3-point shooting teams in college basketball history, breaking season and NCAA Tournament records. The Wildcats blasted Kansas in the national semifinals, hitting a record 18 from beyond the arc.

    Nova's DiVincenzo wins most outstanding player of Final Four
    April 3, 2018


    SAN ANTONIO (AP) When Villanova was struggling with its shots in the first half, Donte DiVincenzo provided a wake-up call for the Wildcats.

    When Michigan tried to make a move on Villanova in the second half, DiVincenzo put down the uprising with 11 straight points and a wink toward the sideline.

    The Wildcats' sixth-man scored a career-high 31 points and won most outstanding player of the Final Four as Villanova beat Michigan 79-62 on Monday night for its second NCAA Tournament championship in three seasons.

    DiVincenzo, who was just a cheerleader for Villanova during that championship run in the 2015-16 season, had the first 30-point effort in a title game since Miles Simon did it for Arizona against Kentucky in 1997.

    The redshirt sophomore from Delaware broke his foot early in his freshman season and was limited to eight games and a medical redshirt.

    Against Michigan, DiVincenzo was the guy. He had 16 points on an assortment of drives and mid-range shots in the first half as Villanova started 1 for 8 from 3-point range.

    The Wildcats' offense, the best in the country with shooters all over the floor, perked up late and surged to nine-point halftime lead. The advantage quickly bulged to double-digits in the second half. Michigan had whittled it down 12 with about nine minutes left when DiVincenzo hit 3 from up top. The next time down he let another one fly - why not? - and after it swished through he looked toward the sideline and gave a wink.

    DiVincenzo finished 10-for-15 from the field, with five rebounds, three assists and two blocked shots. He had the highest scoring game for any single player against Michigan's stingy defense this season and became the sixth player in the last 40 years with a 30-point NCAA championship game.

    Michigan unable to counter Villanova in title game defeat
    April 3, 2018


    SAN ANTONIO (AP) One by one, Michigan's starters trudged to the bench in succession while the final minutes of the NCAA Tournament championship game ticked away.

    The Wolverines had all tried to stop Donte DiVincenzo, and they had all failed as he delivered the highest scoring performance all season by a Michigan opponent in Villanova's 79-62 win.

    Yet the Wolverines' inability to counter with points of their own was just as costly.

    Charles Matthews, Michigan's second-leading scorer, managed only six points on 3-for-9 shooting. The Wolverines got no points in 22 minutes from Duncan Robinson, their fourth-leading scorer.

    Zavier Simpson needed a few late buckets to finish with 10 total points in the two Final Four games, and the Wolverines' top playmaker had just two assists. Michigan had only six total assists on 24 field goals.

    Even worse, the Wolverines' entire bench went a combined 3 for 12 while contributing only seven points - or 24 fewer than DiVincenzo, the Wildcats' extraordinary reserve.

    Michigan went a paltry 3 for 23 on 3-pointers, with only Moe Wagner and Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman finding the net. The Wolverines missed 59 of their 73 3-point attempts over the final three games of the NCAA Tournament, and this time they couldn't make up for it.

    For the second time under coach John Beilein, Michigan couldn't find a defensive answer for a reserve on college basketball's biggest stage. Luke Hancock scored 22 points for Louisville during its victory over the Wolverines in the 2013 title game.

    The Wolverines were an underdog in this matchup at the Alamodome, but they got off to an encouraging start. For the first 10 minutes at the Alamodome, Michigan had an answer for everything Villanova had done so well on its roll through the season as likely the best team in the sport.

    Michigan played smart, aggressive perimeter defense against Villanova's outside shooters, preventing the Wildcats from using a barrage of 3-pointers to jump ahead, as they did against Kansas two days earlier. The Wolverines' defense was athletic and flexible enough to get a hand in most shooters' faces, and the difference in Villanova's offensive flow was dramatic.

    Moe Wagner's 25-point, 14-rebound performance against Loyola-Chicago two days earlier propelled the Wolverines into the championship game, and the German big man got off to another outstanding start against the Wildcats. Wagner slipped inside for a layup to put Michigan up 21-14 midway through the first half, and the Wolverines looked good.

    And then it all fell apart.

    Michigan didn't score again for the next 5:13, missing seven consecutive shots. DiVincenzo got rolling with a series of buckets, and his teammates leaped to a nine-point lead at halftime.

    Villanova's Wright in select company with 2nd NCAA title
    April 3, 2018


    SAN ANTONIO (AP) Not all too long ago, Jay Wright was still one of those many standout coaches without a national championship despite repeated winning seasons and appearances in the NCAA Tournament.

    Less than two years and a Texas two-step of titles later, the sharp-dressed Villanova coach is now in very select company.

    With the Wildcats' 79-62 win over Michigan in the Alamodome on Monday night, Wright joined Duke's Mike Krzyzewski and North Carolina's Roy Williams as the only active coaches with multiple NCAA titles. He is the 14th coach overall with more than one championship, a list topped by John Wooden's 10 at UCLA.

    Villanova waited 31 years to win another championship after getting its first with coach Rollie Massimino in 1985.

    Wright and the Wildcats didn't have to wait very long at all to add to that total. Only two days shy of the second anniversary of the title they won about 200 miles away in Houston, they were cutting down the nets again.

    ''I never dreamt of this,'' Wright said.

    The Wildcats wrapped up Wright's 17th season with 36 wins, a school record. It was his 422nd win at Villanova after 122 wins and back-to-back NCAA Tournaments in the last of his seven seasons at Hofstra.

    After making it to the Final Four in 2009, the Wildcats had a six-season span when they made the NCAA Tournament five times - and never got past the first weekend.

    That changed with their title run in 2016, before another loss in their second tournament game last season.

    Then in this wild NCAA Tournament with AP Player of the Year Jalen Brunson and Final Four MVP Donte DiVencenzo, who scored 31 points in the finale, the Wildcats were never challenged late. They won all six of their tournament games by double figures.

    Armadillo: Tuesday's six-pack

    More opening day payrolls in major leagues:

    18) Minnesota Twins $131,908,226

    17) Arizona Diamondbacks $131,965,116

    16) Cleveland Indians $137,352,165

    15) Colorado Rockies $143,006,500

    14) Baltimore Orioles $143,074,615

    13) Texas Rangers $144,015,776

    **********

    Armadillo: Tuesday's List of 13: Nobody asked me, but………

    13) I wrote this here last month but it bears repeating; former UCLA coach Jim Mora coached QB Josh Rosen for three years, and he said on NFL Network that if he was the Browns, he’d take Sam Darnold with the first pick, not Rosen.

    Now Mora just got fired, so there is an interesting story or three there, but still. Can you ever, in the history of the world, remember a coach throwing his former player under the bus like this?

    12) “He needs to be challenged intellectually so he doesn’t get bored.” Mora talking about Rosen.

    I’ve heard this about Rosen before, that he quit playing youth tennis because he got bored with winning so much. You think Tom Brady gets bored with winning?? Nah, me neither.

    11) Mora also said no GM has called him to talk about Rosen, which seems strange. NFL teams do a ridiculous amount of research on prospects— you don’t talk to his college coach?

    10) Philip Rivers better not get hurt; Chargers signed Geno Smith as his backup- he’ll join Cardale Jones on the Chargers’ bench. Like I said, Rivers better not get hurt.

    9) Since Bartolo Colon made his big league debut, 17 of the 30 major league teams have gotten new home ballparks.

    8) Houston’s Marwin Gonzalez and Milwaukee’s Hernan Perez were only two players LY with 10+ starts at five different positions.

    7) Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban was in a scene in Showtime’s Billions Sunday night; not a very tough role— he played himself, but have to give him credit— he nailed it.

    6) Solid discovery today in my local supermarket- they sell Dr Brown’s soda, which is usually only sold in delis. Got some black cherry and cream soda— that goes very well with the excellent sandwiches at the Carnegie Deli in the Mirage Casino in Las Vegas, but they’ll have to do for now with whatever I have to eat here at home.

    5) Roof was open at Marlins Park Monday nite, will be open again tonight, weather permitting, making it six nights in a row the roof in Miami will be open. Last year, in 78 h0me games, Miami had the roof open only six times.

    4) Reds 1, Cubs 0— Chicago is 2-3 to start the season; they’ve scored a total of one run in the three losses. Cubs have struck out 58 times in five games, an NL record for any team in their first five games.

    3) Villanova 79, Michigan 62— Wolverines were 3-15 from floor in last 11:00 of first half, when this game was decided. DiVicenzo is Villanova’s 3rd-leading scorer but doesn’t start- he took this game over, scoring 18 in first half, 31 for the game.

    This was first year the Super Bowl champ and NCAA basketball champ came from the same city.

    2) This was the first national title game since the Magic-Bird final in 1979 with only one McDonald’s All-American playing in it. Just goes to show you that high school ratings can be very misleading.

    1— The golf pool on this site starts this week with The Masters— if you’d like to get in, you pick three guys a week, can only use the same guy once a year. 18 tournament, then a 4-week playoff for the eight people who make it.

    Schedule is on the golf page on this site— e-mail me at ffib13@gmail.com if you’re interested.

    Tuesday's Tip Sheet
    April 3, 2018


    Game of the Night: Warriors at Thunder (-4 ˝, 221) – 8:05 PM EST

    Only three playoff spots have been clinched in the Western Conference heading into Tuesday’s action. Houston, Golden State, and Portland have locked up postseason berths, while teams sitting at 4-8 are separated by two games. Oklahoma City begins tonight as the fifth seed, only one half-game behind San Antonio for home-court advantage in the opening round.

    The Thunder (45-33 SU, 32-45-1 ATS) ended a three-game losing streak in Sunday’s 109-104 victory at New Orleans to avenge a pair of losses to the Pelicans from earlier this season. Paul George led the Thunder with 27 points, but did so on 9-of-24 shooting, while OKC knocked down nine three-pointers on 31 attempts. The victory also halted an 0-4-1 ATS slide, while the UNDER improved to 5-1 the past six games for the Thunder.

    The Warriors (56-21 SU, 32-44-1 ATS) hit the road for a two-game set that concludes at Indiana on Thursday. Golden State has won two straight since a three-game skid, albeit beating Sacramento and Phoenix on a back-to-back set. Klay Thompson returned to the Warriors’ lineup on Sunday and poured in 23 points, while Kevin Durant scored a game-high 29 points to go along with 11 rebounds. The Warriors failed to cover as 14-point favorites, dropping to 3-6 ATS the previous nine contests.

    The Thunder captured the first two matchups with the Warriors this season by 17 and 20 points. However, Steve Kerr’s squad picked up revenge in the last meeting at Oracle Arena in late February, 112-80 to cash easily as 10-point favorites. The Warriors outscored the Thunder, 60-35 in the second half, while limiting OKC to 33% shooting from the floor. Golden State has struggled as an underdog this season by posting an 0-4 SU/ATS record, as all four of those games came in March.

    It’s a Rap?

    The Raptors (55-21 SU, 40-36 ATS) are sneaking closer towards the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs and the coveted spot for home-court advantage. Toronto owns a two-game edge over Boston for not only the top seed, but also the Atlantic division title. The Raptors look to rebound following Saturday’s 110-99 defeat at Boston, as Toronto fell to a surprising 0-8 ATS the last eight games (all as a favorite).

    Toronto is flipped to a short underdog tonight at Cleveland (47-30 SU, 29-47-1 ATS), trying to avenge a 132-129 setback to the Cavaliers on March 21. The Cavaliers allowed 79 first half points to the Raptors, but erased a 15-point halftime deficit thanks to LeBron James scoring 35 points and dishing out 17 assists. Cleveland is still the worst ATS team in the league, but the Cavs have picked things up in that department recently by covering seven of their last eight games.

    All Bucked Up

    Milwaukee (41-36 SU, 32-40-5 ATS) still has the inside track on a playoff position in the Eastern Conference, but the Bucks will kick themselves if they receive an unfavorable draw in the opening round. On Sunday night, the Bucks not only built a 12-point lead after the first quarter at Denver, but led by 17 points with 6:30 remaining in regulation. Denver outscored Milwaukee, 8-0 in the final minute to force overtime and eventually stun the Bucks, 128-125.

    It’s back home for the Bucks following the 2-2 road swing out west as the Celtics (53-23 SU, 47-27-2 ATS) invade Milwaukee. Since losing the opening matchup with the Bucks in late October, the Celtics have captured the past two meetings with Milwaukee, but the teams haven’t met since December. Boston is riding a six-game winning streak following Saturday’s home underdog victory over Toronto, as Brad Stevens’ team owns a terrific 11-2 ATS record in their past 13 opportunities as an underdog.

    Don’t Forget About Us

    The landscape of the Western Conference playoffs is changing on a nightly basis as the Spurs (45-32 SU, 41-34-2 ATS) have jumped into the fourth position following back-to-back home wins over the Thunder and Rockets. San Antonio has taken care of its business at home by winning nine straight games at AT&T Center, but the Spurs need to clean up their act on the highway. Gregg Popovich’s club has lost nine of its past 10 road contests, including recent setbacks at Washington and Milwaukee.

    The Spurs venture to Los Angeles for a pair of games the next two nights at Staples Center. The first matchup comes against the Clippers (41-36 SU, 41-35-1 ATS), who were dealt a huge blow for a playoff spot in Sunday’s home defeat to the Pacers. L.A. sits two games behind New Orleans for the final postseason position in the West, while Denver is sandwiched between the two. The Clippers are playing with double-revenge against the Spurs after dropping a pair of games at San Antonio earlier this season.

    Momentum Swing

    Both the Pacers and Nuggets are starting to hit their stride heading into April as Indiana finishes off its four-game road swing at Pepsi Center. Indiana (46-31 SU, 44-33 ATS) rallied at Los Angeles to beat the Clippers on Sunday, 111-104 to pick up its fifth consecutive victory. The Pacers have clinched a playoff berth and are one game back of Cleveland for the top spot in the Central division.

    Denver (42-35 SU, 35-39-3 ATS) managed a second straight dramatic overtime victory by stunning Milwaukee on Sunday, 128-125. Nikola Jokic registered 35 points and 13 rebounds, while guard Jamal Murray hit three free throws at the end of regulation to force overtime and finished the night with 27 points. Denver looks to avenge a 126-116 overtime loss at Indiana earlier this season as the Nuggets threw away an early 19-point advantage.

    Down the Stretch

    The Rockets (62-15 SU, 40-36-1 ATS) had their 11-game winning streak come to a halt in Sunday’s 100-83 setback at San Antonio. Chris Paul sat out with a lingering hip injury, but is expected to return to the lineup tonight after missing five of the past six games. The Rockets have fared well as single-digit home favorites by cashing in nine of the past 12 opportunities, while winning 18 consecutive games at Toyota Center since early January.

    The Wizards (42-35 SU, 35-41-1 ATS) travel to Texas as Washington looks to hold onto a slim one-game edge over Miami in the Southeast. Scott Brooks’ team is already in the playoffs, but suffered an ugly 113-94 loss at Chicago on Sunday as 7 ˝-point road favorites to fall to 1-4 in the last five games away from Capital One Arena. The Wizards seek the season sweep of the Rockets after blowing out Houston in D.C., 121-103 as 1 ˝-point underdogs in late December.
