Sunday's NBA betting matchup notes
ASSOCIATED PRESS

Chicago at Toronto

The Bulls have lost three straight to the Raptors, which could mean more bad news for Chicago, as these two teams have been incredibly streaky lately.

Utah at Detroit

The Jazz have swept their two-game series with the Pistons (8-4) the last two seasons, but that run of success may be difficult to sustain against a Pistons team that is 4-0 at home.

Cleveland at Indiana

The Cavs have won three straight and six of seven against Indiana after losing 16 of the previous 21.

San Antonio at Seattle

San Antonio (11-2), which is tied with Phoenix for the Western Conference's best record and tries for a season-high fifth straight victory, looks for a sixth consecutive win over the lowly Sonics (2-11) and third straight in Seattle.

New Jersey at L.A. Lakers

The Lakers swept two games from the Nets last season after New Jersey won both meetings in 2005-06.

MRIs negative for Bobcats' Wallace, Hollins
ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Tests on injured Bobcats forward Gerald Wallace and center Ryan Hollins were negative, but the two did not play Saturday night against the Boston Celtics.

Wallace and Hollins each had MRIs a day after sustaining injuries in a loss to the Orlando magic.

Wallace, Charlotte's leading scorer, was limited to 12 minutes against the Magic after complaining of a strained right calf. Tests showed no tear, but Wallace suffered more discomfort warming up before Saturday's game against Boston and was a last-minute scratch from the starting lineup.

Rookie Jared Dudley replaced him at small forward.

Hollins left the game in the second half against Orlando holding his left shoulder. The MRI showed no tears or rotator cuff damage, but Hollins did not dress for Saturday's game. A team official said he'll be listed as day to day.

The Bobcats have already lost forwards Adam Morrison and Sean May to season-ending knee injuries.

Martin injures right knee in Houston
ASSOCIATED PRESS

HOUSTON -- Denver forward Kenyon Martin left the Nuggets' game Saturday night against Houston because of strained right knee.

Martin walked off the floor with 2:43 left in the half. He was evaluated in the locker room and the Nuggets announced in the third quarter that he wouldn't return

Martin has missed 106 games over the previous two seasons because of microfracture surgeries on both knees.

The 6-foot-9, 240-pound Martin is averaging 8.8 points and 5.3 rebounds.

Re: Betting News and Notes - Nov 25th

O'Neal might play versus Cavs

Indiana Pacers coach Jim O'Brien said he anticipates starting forward Jermaine O'Neal will be back in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers at Conseco Fieldhouse.

But a couple of things have to happen before O'Neal, who missed his second straight game with swelling in his left knee, returns. He has to be medically cleared and be ready to play at least at a 90 percent level. The Pacers will practice today.

"He has to be ready to practice," O'Brien said. "It's difficult to just play games and not practice. Jermaine knows how important he is to our team on the practice floor and also in games. He also knows why having this swelling in this leg makes it hard to practice; you almost can't. If you're not practicing, you're not really playing to your capabilities."

O'Neal, who has missed three games this season, said he didn't have an MRI on Friday because the swelling in his knee has subsided. He got ice therapy treatment during Friday's game against the Dallas Mavericks.

Seeing an improvement

Center David Harrison, who has been foul prone during his career, has given the Pacers a key contribution off the bench over the past week.

He played 19 minutes in O'Neal's absence against New Orleans, totaling 12 points, four rebounds and a block.

O'Brien wants Harrison to string together a strong month.

"I have a lot of confidence (in him)," O'Brien said. "I think what he has done the last couple of games, he's stayed relatively foul free. He's starting to show the referees his hands on defense. That's good that he's letting referees know he's not going to be grabbing people . . . It's very important for this franchise that what we have seen over the last week we continue to see from David, because he's an extremely talented, athletic basketball player."

Harrison played almost 11 minutes Friday night, grabbing three rebounds and committing four fouls.

Harrison was benched the entire second half Nov. 10 against Denver after picking up a technical foul. O'Brien said Harrison has "no choice" but to be on his best behavior with the officials because the Pacers don't plan on "tolerating him being distracted" with the officials.

Walking around

Forward Ike Diogu, out since Nov. 6 with a torn left calf muscle, has started walking without his boot. He said he's doing some stretching and calf raises, but he still is not able to run.

"They don't know when that's going to happen yet," Diogu said. "They're still evaluating me."

Diogu was averaging nearly 14 points and four rebounds before he was injured.
