    Armadillo: Monday's six-pack

    How NCAA tournament prop bets fared:

    — #4 seeds- 5.5 wins. Finished at 5; K-State’s 1st round loss was a crusher. UNDER

    — #5 seeds- 4.5 wins. Sitting at 4, with Auburn alive- they have all four wins.

    — #6-seeds- 4.5 wins. Finished at 3. UNDER

    — #7-seeds: 3.5 wins. Finished at 1. Wofford got only win. UNDER

    — #8-seeds: 2.5 wins. Got shut out by the 9-seeds. UNDER

    — #9-seeds: 2 wins: Went 4-0 in first round. OVER


    **********

    Armadillo: Monday's List of 13: Happy April Fools’ Day

    13) Auburn 77, Kentucky 71 OT— Last time they played, Kentucky beat Auburn by 27. Not this time, and Charles Barkley’s alma mater is going to the Final Four for the first time. Auburn beat Kansas, North Carolina and Kentucky in its last three games; not bad.

    Kentucky poached Stanford’s best player (a senior) and surrounded him with three freshmen and a sophomore; college basketball has become more like baseball, where kids jump to where they think the grass is greener, trying to get to the NBA.

    Sometimes that grass is greener, sometimes it isn’t. You can get to the NBA from anywhere.

    12) Nine of the 16 coaches in the Sweet 16 had already been to a Final Four. Chris Beard, Bruce Pearl and Tony Bennett will all be going to their first one.

    11) Michigan State 68, Duke 67— Spartans trailed by 9 in first half, by 3 with 1:51 left, but survived 2-6 shooting on the foul line to get their first Final Four since 2015.

    Final Four is a #1-seed, #2-seed, #3-seed, #5-seed.

    10) San Francisco 49ers sold two seats inside their War Room on draft night to two people who paid $11,000 each for that experience. The $22,000 will supposedly go to a charity.

    9) SI.com did a survey of NFL scouts about which colleges are the best ones to visit when they evaluate players, and Alabama was far and away chosen as the most accommodating.

    On Alabama’s 2012 team, all 22 starters played in the NFL. I’m guessing that hasn’t happened much. It also helps recruiting.

    8) West Virginia F Lamont West is transferring to Missouri State, which is not a step up or even a lateral move, but he should score more than the 12.1 ppg he averaged LY, starting 20 of the 36 Mountaineer games.

    7) Over half the NFL owners (17 of 32) inherited their teams. Only seven of 30 NBA owners inherited their team.

    6) In 20 games for Milwaukee against the Cardinals. Christian Yelich has 10 homers, 23 RBI and 22 runs scored.

    5) If I’m a Philadelphia Eagles fan, and I hear coach Doug Pederson say “Carson Wentz has it in him to be a better teammate” well, that would worry me. The last thing you should be worrying about is if your quarterback is a good teammate.

    4) Dodgers 18, Diamondbacks 5— Third game of the season Saturday night, and Arizona used a catcher to pitch the 7th/8th innings. Seriously, in the third game of the year?

    Then the Dodgers let catcher Russell Martin pitch the 9th inning, when they were winning, albeit 18-5. When was last time both teams used a position player to pitch in same game?

    3) Minnesota Twins’ starters Berrios/Odorizzi both struck out 10+ guys in their first start, just 2nd time EVER a team had that happen in their first two games of a season. Diamondbacks in 2001 also did it, with Randy Johnson/Curt Schilling.

    2) San Diego Padres’ rookie pitcher Chris Paddack was thrown out at first base by the RF on what appeared to be a sharp single to right in his first MLB at-bat, with the bases loaded. I’m guessing that hasn’t happened very often.

    1) Orlando 34, Memphis 31— Memphis was up 31-28 with 2:40 left on a rainy day; the snap goes right through the punter’s hands, and Orlando gets the wet ball on the 26-yard line and wins the game.

    Refs missed a delay of game penalty on Orlando on the last play before the 2:00 warning, and Mike Singletary went off, getting two unsportsmanlike penalties during the 2:00 warning. Had the feel of a semi-pro game, which isn’t a good look for a new league.

    Monday's Essentials
    Tony Mejia

    Game of the Night - Miami at Boston (-6.5, 212), 7:35 ET, NBA TV

    With the West’s top eight already decided, the Eastern Conference is the only show in town if you’re looking to watch how desperate teams facing must-win games in order to extend their season perform. Monday’s nine-game schedule features the Trail Blazers and Jazz favored to pick up wins to strengthen their bid for the No. 4 seed that looks to be up for grabs, but the truly compelling games all feature East teams that begin the month with plenty left to accomplish.

    The Celtics beat the Pacers on a Kyrie Irving game-winner late last week and have the inside track on the East’s No. 4 seed as they try and pick up homecourt advantage for their likely playoff matchup. Indiana has lost seven of eight but still hosts Boston on Friday night with an opportunity to open the postseason at Bankers Life Fieldhouse and begins an important home-and-home against Detroit you can read about below.

    Prior to visiting Indianapolis, the Celtics have their own home-and-home set to get through against Miami, which enters the week looking to catch Orlando or Brooklyn in order to extend Dwyane Wade’s retirement tour into the postseason. Ideally, the playoffs in where his career should end, but it could be that the basketball gods have no desire to see him go out in a first round. As things stand, the Heat control its destiny, coming in a half-game ahead of the Magic despite losing at home to them last week. Considering they have the tougher schedule and Orlando holds the tie-breaker, the Heat’s grip on No. 8 is indeed tenuous, but they have won six of eight and figure to go down swinging.

    The Heat won in New York on Sunday night despite leaving Justise Winslow, Josh Richardson and Rodney McGruder behind due to injuries. It remains to be seen if they’ll be available fort the rematch on Wednesday in South Florida, but with Derrick Jones, Jr. dealing with a personal matter and questionable to play, James Johnson, Dion Waiters and Wade will see extended time on the wing and Miami will be far more vulnerable defensively than they have been for most of their current run.

    Hassan Whiteside provided the spark in Saturday’s 100-92 win at the Knicks, providing 17 points and 13 rebounds off the bench while Waiters delivered 28 points and six assists. Wade had 16 points and has consistently made plays late in games to the point that it’s clear he’s leaving with plenty left in the tank, so you can count on him leaving it all out there and playing a defining role in determining what he’ll be preparing to do once the next 10 days are up.

    It doesn’t sound like the Celtics have any injury concerns ahead of this one, so the Heat could get a team that will be looking to turn up their intensity level now that we’ve reached April with everyone still healthy. Al Horford has been dealing with knee soreness but is expected to start in the middle. Kyrie Irving has skipped games here and there over the past few months but looks to be fresh. His game-winning layup against Indiana was the type of shot that wins championships, capping a 30-point night. He got exactly where he wanted with a confidence and certainty that only the truly elite can manage, delivering the winning bucket with 0.5 left.

    Irving then got the night off on Saturday as the short-handed Celtics fell in Brooklyn without their All-Star point guard and Horford, getting outscored by 18 over the final three quarters. Jayson Tatum did play despite dealing with an illness over the weekend, so we’ll see where his energy level is for this one, but Boston has been better early in games of late and should look to get out in transition to keep the Heat from setting its halfcourt defense, which could lead to a high-scoring opening quarter. If Jones sits, Miami will be without its most dynamic athlete and will certainly be vulnerable to the edge in depth the Celtics would have on the wing given the absence of Winslow, Richardson and McGruder.

    Each team has won at home through the first two meetings in the season series, but the Heat actually have been better in opposing arenas than in their own gym, coming in with the Eastern Conference’s third-best road record. Wade isn’t likely to get the warm reception he got at Madison Square Garden from Boston fans tonight considering he’s always been a villain a TD Garden, but he should be heavily involved in determining the outcome given Miami’s personnel issues. The future Hall of Famer has averaged 19.7 points against the Celtics over his career.

    The ‘over’ has prevailed in eight of the last 11 games involving Boston, but the ‘under’ is 4-1 over Miami’s last five. The number (212) is identical to where it was placed for the first two meetings which split.

    Best of the Rest

    Detroit at Indiana, 7:05 p.m. ET:
    Blake Griffin was scratched on Saturday night prior to the Pistons tipping off against the Blazers, complaining of knee soreness after suiting up for warm-ups. His absence took everyone by surprise and will carry over another game since he’s already been ruled out for this one. Andre Drummond finished with 22 points and 19 rebounds to help take down Portland for Detroit’s 11th consecutive home win, but it’s been a different story on the road, where it has lost six of seven, failing to top the century mark in three of the losses. We’ll see if scoring is an issue against the defensive-minded Pacers, who won the first meeting of the season between these teams at Bankers Life Fieldhouse 125-88 back on Dec. 28. Indiana has lost seven of eight but should prioritize ramping up its intensity level on defense after being carved up for 65 second-half points by Orlando in a bad home loss on Saturday. Bojan Bogdanovic is averaging 21.8 points over the Pacers’ last 10 games, sporting a 28.0-points-per-game clip over his last four.

    Milwaukee at Brooklyn, 7:35 p.m. ET:
    Khris Middleton wasn’t expected to sit on Sunday, but felt pain in warmups and opted not to play against the Hawks. That had a domino effect with Eric Bledsoe getting the day off, so we’ll see if they play here. The team is rightfully being cautious with Giannis Antetokounmpo’s ankle and have a three-game lead on Toronto for the East’s top seed with five to play, so they can afford to give key guys time off. The Nets benefited from Irving and Horford sitting out Saturday night and could again catch a break if the Bucks aren’t at full strength here since they’re looking to hold off both Florida teams to finish among the conference’s top eight. Middleton and Tony Snell could return here for Milwaukee or might be given some additional time to heal up since the team doesn’t play again until Thursday, so be sure to check on the status of these guys closer to tip. Allen Crabbe remains out with a knee issue for Brooklyn, which is 0-2 against the Bucks this season.

    Orlando at Toronto, 7:35 p.m. ET:
    This could be the Magic's toughest remaining game given their remaining schedule, which features only one other playoff team, so if they can secure an upset, you really have to like their chances of ending a lengthy playoff drought. Saturday's win in Indy was impressive and featured everyone collectively playing really well on both sides of the ball, which is a big deal for this group since they've been so streaky on the offensive end. The Raptors fell 113-98 last time these teams played on Feb. 24 as Terrence Ross haunted his former team with 28 points. Orlando has won two of three over the Raps and seven of eight overall, coming off a season-best 37 assists against the Pacers. Toronto should have starting forwards Kawhi Leonard and Pascal Siakam back after both rested on Saturday, so we could be in for a true early preview of a potential playoff series with both teams playing to win this one since this could very well end up the 2-7 matchup in the East. The 'over' is on an 8-3-1 run in games involving Toronto.
