Tipping off on the hardwood . . .

The NBA has five games on tap for Monday, with Atlanta at New York, Golden State at New Orleans, Dallas at Minnesota, New Jersey at Memphis, and San Antonio at Cleveland. The Spurs (36-24 SU, 29-30-1 ATS) got past the Grizzlies by a score of 102-92 in their last game on Saturday; however San Antonio guard Tony Parker broke his hand and is out indefinitely. The Cavs (49-15 SU, 31-31-2 ATS) are coming off a 92-85 loss to the Bucks on Saturday, with LeBron James sitting out to rest a sore ankle. Antawn Jamison poured in 30 points in that defeat.

As well, a light Monday around college basketball kicks off the final pre-Madness week of the season. Included on the Monday slate are tournament semi-final matchups in both the Sun Belt and the Summit League, as well as championship games in the Colonial Athletic, Metro Atlantic, Southern, and West Coast conferences. The first major conference tourney of the year tips off on Tuesday, with the Big East staging its four opening matchups at Madison Square Garden.

Finally, there are just two games on the National Hockey League schedule for Monday, with Columbus at Los Angeles and Dallas at Washington. The 28-24-12 Stars were pounded 6-3 on the road by the Penguins in their last game on Saturday. Kari Lehtonen gave up six goals on 34 shots for Dallas in that loss, while Mike Ribeiro picked up a goal and an assist. The 44-13-8 Capitals blanked the Rangers in a 2-0 win in their Saturday outing. Eric Fehr and Eric Belanger scored for Washington in that contest, while Jose Theodore stopped all 30 shots.
