Williams out at least a game after man found in his truck arrested for murder
February 28, 2008

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Indiana Pacers forward Shawne Williams will miss at least one game after a man who had just left Williams' home was arrested on a murder charge.

Williams did not practice with the team on Thursday and will not travel with the Pacers to their game at Toronto on Friday. Team CEO Donnie Walsh said Williams was not suspended but needed time to sort out what happened.

Officers arrested 20-year-old Gary Bohannon of Memphis, Tenn., on a Tennessee warrant for murder Wednesday night, after he allegedly left Williams' home in a truck registered to Williams.

Williams attorney John Tompkins said his client didn't know Bohannon was at his home and did not invite him there. Tompkins said Williams was cooperating with investigators.

Sam Cassell's stint with Clippers ends as team waives him
February 28, 2008

LOS ANGELES (AP) -The Clippers waived injury-prone Sam Cassell on Thursday, after he missed four straight games with a sprained right wrist.

He averaged 12.8 points, 4.7 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 25.7 minutes in 38 games. Earlier in the season, the point guard missed 12 games with a strained left calf.

``After weighing all of the options and after conversations with Sam we believe this is the best solution for this team,'' general manager Elgin Baylor said in a statement. ``We know and appreciate the many contributions Sam made during the last three years, and we wish him nothing but the best.''

Cassell's most productive season with the Clippers came in 2005-06, when he averaged 17.2 points and 6.3 assists. He helped them get within a game of reaching the Western Conference finals.

Wizards' Caron Butler has labral tear in hip, return uncertain
February 28, 2008

WASHINGTON (AP) -A re-examination of Washington Wizards All-Star forward Caron Butler's hip revealed a small labral tear of the left joint, further complicating his return from injury.

Butler has missed the past 10 games with what was originally diagnosed as a strained hip flexor. He did not accompany the team on the road trip that ends Friday night at Chicago.

The Wizards did not give a timetable for Butler's return. They said Butler will be evaluated next week, essentially ruling him out of Sunday's home game against New Orleans.

The Wizards are 4-10 this season when Butler doesn't play. He is averaging 21.4 points, 6.8 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 2.4 steals and earned a spot in the All-Star game for the second time.

The Wizards, who have also played most of the season without injured point guard Gilbert Arenas, have lost 11 of 14 games to fall to sixth place in the Eastern Conference.

Jazz bring their music to New Orleans

Two of the best young point guards in the NBA square off once again on Friday night when Deron Williams and the Utah Jazz take on Chris Paul and the New Orleans Hornets.

Williams and Paul both came out of the same draft class in 2005 and were actually drafted back-to-back in the first round. With Paul sporting slightly better stats and making a trip to the All-Star game earlier this month, you would think he came off the draft board first. However, Williams was actually chosen third overall by Utah, while the Hornets grabbed Paul with the No. 4 pick. Every time the two rivals have clashed in the past, one has tried to outplay the other and Friday night will be the next chapter in this intriguing story.

Utah and New Orleans last met up on Feb. 4 when the Jazz squashed the Hornets 110-88 as a 2.5-point home favorite. Williams shot an impressive 11-for-13 from the field for Utah to net a team-high 29 points, while also handing out 11 assists. Paul struggled for New Orleans, hitting only 3-of-11 for a lackluster six points. Paul also ran into foul trouble in the loss and posted only six assists.

When New Orleans and Utah met up for the first time this season back in November, it was a different story but the same result. The Jazz sang some sweet music in that game as well, torching the Hornets 99-71 as a 6.5-point favorite. Carlos Boozer was the man for Utah with 19 points and 16 rebounds, while Williams was held to 12 points and seven assists. Four other Utah players scored in double figures in what was an all-around team victory. Paul had a better game for New Orleans, but he didn’t light it up with 15 points, six rebounds and six assists. The Hornets were led by David West, who has 18 points and 14 rebounds in the loss.

The Hornets head into Friday night’s contest coming off an impressive win over Phoenix on Wednesday. New Orleans snapped a short three-game losing streak by thumping Phoenix 120-103 as a 3.5-point home favorite. West scored 27 points for New Orleans, while Paul chipped in with 25 points and 15 assists.

Utah knocked off Detroit 103-95 as a 1.5-point home favorite on Wednesday night. Mehmet Okur led the Jazz with 24 points and seven rebounds, while Boozer added 18 points and 15 rebounds. Williams chipped in with 14 points and 14 assists in the win.

Tip-off is Friday night at 8:00pm ET with ESPN handling the coverage.

Re: Betting News and Notes - Feb 29

Friday’s best NBA bets
COVERS.com

Utah at New Orleans

The Hornets lost three of four games after the All-Star break and that cost them their lead in the NBA Southwest. But they bounced back to snap a three-game losing streak on Wednesday, downing the visiting Suns 120-103 as a 3 ½-point favorite.

"Enough is enough," Chris Paul, who had 25 points and 15 assists on the night, said after the win. "We were on a losing streak and we came out with a different mentality, but we've got to come out with that mentality every night."

If Hornets can recreate that performance on Friday, then expect Utah’s road woes to continue. The Jazz have dropped three of their last four, both straight up and ATS, on the road, including a shock 111-100 loss to the struggling Timberwolves in their last away game.

Memphis at Houston

The Rockets were without their star player on Wednesday night, but it didn’t really show. Yao Ming will miss the rest of the season with a stress fracture in his foot, but Houston still beat the Wizards 94-69 for their 13th straight win.

That’s their longest streak since their 1993-94 championship season and it’s also the longest active streak in the NBA. The most impressive thing about Wednesday’s win is that it was a total team effort. The Rockets got double-digit contributions from five different players, including a team-high 18 from guard Luther Head off the bench.

While Yao’s injury is likely to catch up with the Rockets eventually, it probably won’t happen when Memphis visits on Friday. Houston has beaten the Grizzlies in six of the last seven meetings, covering the spread in three of the last four.

Minnesota at Cleveland


LeBron James became the youngest player in NBA history to reach the 10,000-point milestone in Wednesday night’s loss to Boston. But bettors should be focusing on the new-look back-up crew, not James, ahead of Friday’s meeting with Minnesota.

The Cavs have played three games together since trading for four new players last week, and they’ve lost two of them. Of course, there’s no shame in a loss at Boston, but the previous defeat to Milwaukee is more of a cause for concern. All four new players were involved, and forward Anderson Varejao returned from injury, but Cleveland still needed 35 points from James just to keep it close.

The supporting cast could have to step in a big way on Friday, because James' status is in doubt due to an ankle injury he picked up in Boston.

Re: Betting News and Notes - Feb 29

Indiana (22-36, 26-32 ATS) at Toronto (32-24, 32-23-1 ATS)

The Raptors will try to complete a season sweep of the Pacers when the two teams meet inside the Air Canada Centre.

Toronto is 3-0 SU and ATS against Indiana this season and has won four straight overall (4-0 ATS) and five of six (5-1 ATS) against the Pacers. In the most recent meeting on Monday, the Raptors scored a 102-98 win in Indiana as a three-point favorite to improve to 21-8 ATS in the last 29 series battles.

Including Monday’s victory over the Pacers, Toronto is on a 7-3 SU and ATS roll, having rattled off three straight wins and covers in its last three. On Wednesday, the Raptors topped the Timberwolves 107-85 as an 11½-point home chalk, their fourth consecutive SU and ATS triumph in front of the home fans.

While the Raptors are rolling, Indiana is struggling, having lost six of seven overall (1-6 ATS), including the last three in a row (0-3 ATS). The Pacers followed up Monday’s loss to Toronto with Wednesday’s 113-107 home setback to the Bulls as a one-point favorite.

The straight-up winner has covered the spread in each of the Raptors’ last 30 contests and is 52-3-1 ATS in Toronto games this season. Also, the winner is 10-0 ATS in Indiana’s last 10 overall, 7-0 ATS in its last seven on the road and 9-1 ATS in the last 10 series meetings between these squads.

The Raptors are 18-11 SU and ATS in Canada this season, including 14-3 ATS in their last 17 as a home favorite. They’re also 8-3 ATS in their last 11 against Central Division opponents.

Indiana is mired in pointspread slumps of 1-5 on the road, 0-5 as an underdog, 5-13 against the Atlantic Division, 17-38-1 against the Eastern Conference and 9-16 this year when playing on one day of rest.

The under is 5-1 in the last six head-to-head meetings, 6-2-1 in the Pacers’ last nine overall and 5-0-1 the last six times they’ve been underdogs. Meanwhile, for Toronto, the over is 7-1 in its last eight against the Eastern Conference and 9-3 in its last 12 as a favorite.

ATS ADVANTAGE: TORONTO


Utah (37-21, 30-28 ATS) at New Orleans (38-18, 33-22-1 ATS)

The Jazz look for a rare road win tonight when they visit New Orleans Arena to take on the Hornets in key Western Conference matchup.

Utah has won seven of its last 10 overall (5-5 ATS) and beat the Pistons 103-95 Wednesday as two-point home favorites. However, the Jazz have the worst road record among the NBA’s top 14 teams at 12-18 SU and ATS. Jerry Sloan’s squad has dropped three of its last four SU and ATS on the highway, including Tuesday’s surprising 111-100 loss in Minnesota as a seven-point favorite.

New Orleans ended a three-game SU and ATS skid with Wednesday’s 120-103 home victory over the Suns as a 3½-point favorite. The Hornets shot 53.3 percent from the floor and put up the 120 points after only averaging 87 per game during the three-game losing streak. Going back to Dec. 19, Byron Scott’s squad has won 23 of its last 31 games (21-10 ATS). Also, the SU winner is 31-2 ATS in the Hornets’ last 33 outings.

Utah has taken the first two matchups with the Hornets this season, both in Salt Lake City, winning 99-71 back in November as a 6½-point favorite and 110-88 on Feb. 4 as a 3½-point chalk. The Jazz have won eight of the last 10 head-to-head meetings (6-3-1 ATS).

The Jazz have cashed in five straight games against the Southwest Division and they’re 10-3 ATS in their last 10 contests against the Western Conference. Meanwhile, New Orleans is on ATS tears of 5-1 against the Northwest Division and 9-4 at home.

The over is 37-17 in Utah’s last 53 games as a ‘dog, 10-3 in New Orleans’ last 13 home games and 12-4 the last 16 times the Hornets have been favored. However, the under hit in each of the first two series meetings this year and is 4-1 in the last five.

ATS ADVANTAGE: NONE


L.A. Lakers (41-17, 40-19-1 ATS) at Portland (30-28, 29-29 ATS)

The Lakers will try to extend their 10-game winning streak tonight and try to beat the Blazers for the second time this week when they head up the coast for a game inside the Rose Garden.

Los Angeles extended its winning streak to 10 with a 106-88 rout of the Heat in Hollywood Thursday night, easily covering as 14½-point favorites. The Lakers are 9-1 ATS during the streak, but the only non-cover came in Tuesday’s 96-83 home win over Portland when they failed to get the cash as a 15½-point chalk.

After losing to the Lakers on Tuesday, Portland stuck around the Staples Center for Wednesday’s game against the Clippers, prevailing 82-80 as a two-point road underdog. Although they’ve followed up a 1-14 ATS slump with back-to-back covers, the Blazers are still just 2-8 SU in their last 10.

These two teams have split the last 10 series matchups, but the Blazers have gotten the cash six straight times and seven of the last eight. The former Pacific Division rivals haven’t met in Portland since November 2006, when the Blazers delivered a 101-90 victory as a 4½-point chalk, improving to 10-2 ATS in their last 12 home contests against L.A. Finally, the underdog has dominated the series lately, going 19-7 ATS in the last 26.

The Lakers have rattled off seven straight wins and pointspread covers on the road, and they are 21-9-1 ATS when hitting the highway this season. Also, despite Tuesday’s non-cover against Portland, Phil Jackson’s troops are still on ATS runs of 21-8-1 overall, 6-2 against Northwest Division teams and 6-0-1 on Fridays.

Portland is 3-3 SU at home in February but 0-6 ATS. In fact, going back to mid-January, the Blazers have failed to cash in nine straight games at the Rose Garden. They’re also 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games played on one day of rest.

The under is 11-1 in Portland’s last 12 Friday tip-offs, 8-2 in its last 10 overall and 18-11 at the Rose Garden this season. Also, the Lakers have stayed low in four straight contests, and the under is 2-0 in the last two head-to-head meetings in Portland.

ATS ADVANTAGE: PORTLAND and UNDER
