At 2:05 pm, our selection is on the San Antonio Spurs over the Houston Rockets.  The Spurs have made the playoffs 22 straight seasons (tied with the 76ers for the All-time mark), and will likely need to win their next four games (2 in the regular season; 2 in the play-in round) to qualify for a 23rd straight Playoffs.  But I wouldn't bet against them -- at least not today.  And that's because coach Gregg Popovich will face one of his rival coaches, Mike D'Antoni, this afternoon.  And Popovich has dominated D'Antoni in important match-ups, including 20-5 straight-up in the Playoffs, and 16-7-2 ATS.  So, while this game today is not a Playoff game, it is a 'must-win' game, and the Spurs will be prepared.  Take San Antonio to blow out Houston, which will play without James Harden this afternoon.  Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
