Toronto @ Charlotte
-Toronto has won both meetings vs Charlotte this season, 87-79 at Toronto on Nov. 9th & a win at Charlotte 93-86 on Nov. 26th, so Charlotte has in-season double revenge going tonight-
-Charlotte has dropped 3 straight games & they are now in a 3 way tie with 38 losses with Milwaukee, New Jersey, & New York, & they sit 1.5 games behind the Bulls (37 losses) for the #8 seed in the Eastern Conference playoff race, so this game is obviously much more important to Charlotte tonight-
-Toronto snapped a 7 game losing streak yesterday, as they blewout the Pacers 110-87, but Toronto is 1-7 SU & ATS their L/8 road games-
-Charlotte is 11-3 ATS L/14 home games & they are 6-0 ATS L/6 home games vs a team with a road win% of .400 or less & Charlotte is 4-1 ATS L/5 games as a favorite of 5 to 10.5-
San Antonio @ Oklahoma City
-San Antonio beat Ok City at San Antonio 109-104 as 15.5 pt favs back on Dec. 14th & the Spurs are 6-1-1 ATS their L/8 games vs a team with a win% of .400 or below-
-San Antonio is coming off a huge road win over division rival Houston on Saturday night & this may be a bit of a letdown spot for the Spurs tonight, as they are pretty much locked into that #2 seed in the Western Conference playoff race-
-Oklahoma City is coming off a 1-2 west coast roadie, winning at Sacramento by one point, & then suffering back to back double digits losses at Denver & Phoenix to conclude the trip on Saturday night-
-Oklahoma City is 5-2-1 ATS L/8 home games vs a team with a road win% of .600 or higher & Oklahoma City is 8-1 ATS L/9 games as a home underdog of 5 to 10.5-
** I don't have any interest in the Nets/Nuggets game tonight, as the line shot to Denver -13 when it was clear that Devin Harris will be out with a injury**

Deron Williams' status for Tuesday unknown
Deron Williams - G - UTA - Mar. 16
Deron Williams status for Tuesday's game is up in the air, as he waits to see how a lower-leg bruise sustained on Sunday reacts to treatment.
Williams left Sunday's game briefly but soon returned -- unfortunately, his leg stiffened up on him throughout the game. "It probably will get a lot more stiff on the plane home," he said. "It's muscle, so it should hopefully heal. Hopefully it doesn't swell up." He missed one game earlier this season with a similar injury, and owners just have to hope that ice and rest do the trick.

Mehmet Okur - F/C - Jazz
Mehmet Okur played despite having a sprained right ankle on Sunday, accounting for his 0-of-7 shooting in 13 minutes.
He said there is no swelling in the joint, just pain, and it doesn't sound like he's a threat to miss any games. Mar. 16
