The Playmaker's Picks:

Washington Wizards vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

Nothing much to really talk about here.


The Washington Wizards has ben officially eliminated from playoff contention and they are just there to finish the rest of their Restart games.


Oklahoma City Thunder, on the other hand, will like to bounce back after giving the Memphis Grizzlies their first win inside the Bubble. They should do so pretty easy today.


Playmaker's Pick: Oklahoma City Thunder


Memphis Grizzlies vs. Toronto Raptors

Up-and-coming team vs. Defending Champs. Inter-conference matchup.


The Memphis Grizzlies, coming off their first win inside the Bubble looks to continue on the winning track. However that is going to be a very difficult task as they want to hold on to the 8th seed in the West.


The Toronto Raptors, took one on the chin on Friday to Boston, losing by 22 points. The Raptors will look to bounce back in a major way today.


Playmaker's Pick: Toronto Raptors


San Antonio Spurs vs. New Orleans Pelicans

The first of three national televised games for today will on ABC. Western Conference matchup between two teams fighting for that 8th and 9th seeds behind Memphis and Portland


The San Antonio Spurs, continue to look good inside the Bubble. 3-2 in seeding games after defeating the Utah Jazz on Friday, the Spurs are just a half of game behind the Portland Trail Blazers for the 9th seed in the West and two games behind Memphis.


The New Orleans Pelicans, also fighting for their playoffs lives. 2-3 in the seeding games, got a much needed victory against the Washington Wizards. One game behind Portland for the 9th seed and two and half games behind Memphis for the 8th seed, today's game is a must win for Zion and the Pelicans on national tv.
