CUBAN CHARGED

Federal regulators charged Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban with insider trading for allegedly using confidential information on a stock sale to avoid more than $750,000 in losses. In a civil lawsuit filed in federal court in Dallas, the Securities and Exchange Commission alleged that in June 2004, Cuban was invited to get in on the coming stock offering by Mamma.com Inc. after he agreed to keep the information private. Cuban disputed the SEC’s allegations and said he would contest them.

HURTING IN HOUSTON

Tracy McGrady left the Rockets’ 100-89 victory at Oklahoma City in the opening minute of the second half after aggravating his left knee, which was operated on this offseason to have loose bodies removed. He didn’t return. Also, offseason acquisition Ron Artest was limping heavily following the game after hurting his right ankle in a group of photographers on the baseline on a drive to the basket in the final minute.

PENALIZED

The NBA suspended Boston Celtics star Kevin Garnett for one game and fined Phoenix center Shaquille O’Neal $25,000 for separate incidents over the weekend. Garnett was penalized for hitting Milwaukee’s Andrew Bogut in the face near the end of Saturday’s game and will sit out Tuesday night when the Celtics host the New York Knicks. Also, Bogut’s foul on Garnett was upgraded to a flagrant foul penalty one. O’Neal was fined for verbally abusing an official and failing to leave the court quickly after being ejected Sunday night against Detroit.

SPEAKING

“I want to play, man. I want to play. Just to get off to this start, for me personally this is a bad start. To have to play your way through an injury that I’ve never had before and a surgery that was my first surgery is very frustrating. My game is really based on athleticism, and that’s something that I don’t have right now.”—Tracy McGrady, after leaving Houston’s 100-89 victory over Oklahoma City in the opening minute of the second half after aggravating his left knee, which was operated on this offseason.

Hot and Cold Bets -- Week 4
By Matt Fargo

NBA Hot Bets This Week

Tuesday – Milwaukee Bucks at Denver Nuggets 9:00 PM ET


The Detroit and Denver trade that took place was said that it would help both sides and that is definitely the case for the Nuggets. Chauncey Billups has played six games for Denver and it has gone 5-1 straight up and 4-2 against the number. Billups put up 12.5 ppg in his two games with the Pistons but has averaged 19.5 ppg and 6.0 apg since coming over. Allen Iverson’s numbers have been slightly better in Detroit but it is about wins and losses and Denver can not be happier. Milwaukee has surprised some by going 3-3 on the road (5-1 ATS) but two of those wins came against Memphis and Oklahoma City who are a combined 4-16. That has been the case during the whole season as the Bucks have played the 14th ranked schedule but are 0-6 against teams ranked within the top 16 and 5-0 against teams ranked outside the top 16. The Nuggets have won eight of the last 10 meetings while going 8-2 ATS over that stretch.

Wednesday – Cleveland Cavaliers at Detroit Pistons 7:30 PM ET

Detroit is back home following a week long, four-game west coast roadtrip where it went a solid 3-1 both straight up and against the number. The Pistons are 2-1 at home this season with the lone loss coming against the Celtics. They opened the season with non-convincing home wins over Washington and Indiana so they obviously have yet to beat a quality opponent at the Palace. They will get their chance here as no matter what happens to Cleveland on Tuesday against New Jersey, the Cavaliers will come into this matchup in first place in the Central Division. Cleveland is a perfect 5-0 against teams outside the top ten but 3-2 within that group and facing the Pistons is always a challenge. Detroit is 17-7 over the last 24 meetings with Cleveland over the last three years including two playoff series wins. The Pistons did not manage well with the spread during those playoff games as they went just 2-11 ATS in the 13 games but they are 8-4 ATS during the 12 regular season meetings.

NBA Cold Bets This Week

Tuesday – Chicago Bulls at Los Angeles Lakers 10:30 PM ET

I touched upon Chicago in last week’s edition and talked about how it performs at home prior to its long roadtrip during circus time. Now, I’ll take a look at how the Bulls fare at the beginning of the annual away stretch. Simply put, it is not good. The Bulls have lost the first game of their extended roadtrip in each of the last five seasons and they have not been close. All of the losses have been by at least seven points with the average margin of defeat being 11 ppg. Chicago is 0-5 ATS in those games and it has dropped seven of the last eight going back even further. It doesn’t get easier this season as the first game is in Los Angeles against the Lakers. Making matters even worse, the Bulls catch the Lakers coming off their first loss of the season after starting the year 7-0. Los Angeles is 5-0 ATS over the last five meetings and swept last season with wins by 28 and 12 points.

Friday – Memphis Grizzlies at Dallas Mavericks 8:30 PM ET

The Mavericks are in rough shape and seem to have been that way ever since Jason Kidd arrived in town. Dallas went 16-17 after the acquisition of Kidd last season and this year has been a disaster as it is 3-7 and remains the only team in the NBA without a home win. The Mavericks are 0-4 at home and have missed the cover in each of those as well. Dallas won in overtime against the Knicks in New York on Sunday and has to play at Charlotte and Houston before returning home on Friday in trying to notch that first victory at American Airlines Center. The good news is the Mavericks catch Memphis who is currently 1-5 on the road. However, Memphis has been competitive in most of those games, going 3-3 ATS in those six road contests. Memphis is 1-15 in the last 16 meetings with Dallas including 5-11 ATS but most of that damage was done three years ago. The Grizzlies are 0-8 the last two years but 4-4 against the number.

Re: NBA News and Notes Tuesday 11/18

NBA RESEARCH REPORT
By Indiancowboy

Dallas vs. Charlotte

This is a game that Charlotte can win outright, but I am certainly staying away from the Bobcats as I never trust them to play the entire game as they have their respective scoring lulls.

Atlanta vs. Indiana

I love my Hawks but the Pacers are so tough at home the same location where they beat the likes of the Celtics by double-digits. I lean on the Pacers here at home as it was nearly a pick for me.

Toronto vs. Orlando

This game could go either way as the Magic are 7-3 but the Raptors have revenge from last year's playoff loss and would love to step up here on the road - plus, the Magic do have their let downs at home such as their loss against the Hawks and Blazers earlier this year - no thanks.

New York vs. Boston

Garnett might be suspended for this game so note that and without him this game is likely to be more perimeter oriented so I expect an over here and a lean on the Knicks as they could win this outright given that their shooting has drastically improved and of course, if one things a dog is active, a lean on the over.

Milwaukee vs. Denver

Folks, I don't know if you've noticed but Milwaukee can flat out play. They are 5-6 and this is the same team that has gone on the road and covered time and time again. I think they hang tough here against Denver and likely cover.

Portland vs. Golden State

GS comes off that nice win on the road at the Clippers, but they could be in for a quick let down as the Warriors got to beat Baron Davis and Corey Maggatte got to beat his old team - but the Blazers are not scared of anybody - they beat Orlando, Miami and Minnesota on the road and nearly beat the Hornets on the road. Lean on the Blazers here as they keep coming at you.

Chicago vs. Lakers

How does one go against the Lakers first loss of the year or to lay this many points? No thanks.
