NBA News and Notes Sunday 3/1

Sunday's NBA Preview
By Josh Jacobs

Sunday headlines three televised contests for bettors to get in on. Beginning with a 1:00 p.m. EST Eastern Conference showdown between Detroit and Boston, ESPN will close the day out as the Cavaliers pay a visit to Atlanta. Grab your card and get a front row seat in front of the tube because Sunday is serving up plenty of action.

Detroit at Boston – 1:00 p.m. EST on ABC

ABC will begin the day by airing a battle in the East between the Pistons (28-29 straight up, 22-35 against the spread) and Celtics (47-13 SU, 33-27 ATS). Much has been made about Boston acquiring disgruntled point guard, Stephon Marbury. Well, the deal is done and Marbury was able to help his new club by draining eight points in only 13 minutes of action on Friday (beating Indiana, 104-99 as 12-point favorites).

The Celtics have been on a downturn economically, losing three of the last five games ATS. Even more damaging for backers is an 0-4 ATS slide in the last four home games. But maybe gamblers will get some luck and capitalize on Boston’s 15-11 ATS stand when coming off an ATS loss in its last game.

If there’s one avenue to travel on it’s been the Celtics’ 6-1 ‘under’ record in the last seven games. But that concrete trend has been countered by a 5-1 ‘over’ performance in the last six home stands. A good reason for rocking the total has been Boston’s offensive output of 111.2 PPG in the last nine home games versus draining 101 PPG during its recent six-game road trip.

What can be said about Detroit? An eight-game losing streak has been the talk around town largely due to an inept offense scoring 89.4 PPG. The bigger picture has seen the Pistons giving up 17 defeats in the last 23 games followed by the same sad record against the spread. We’re talking about a team reminiscent of today’s economical collapse.

Supporting the fade play on Detroit is a 5-6 ATS record in the last 11 road games (15-13 ATS road record on the season), a 4-6 ATS stint against the Atlantic Division this year and a 12-19 ATS fall coming off one-day of rest. This will be the Pistons fifth and final road game in the last eight days.

Head-to-head trends have the ‘under’ at 14-3 in the last 17 meetings, backed by the ‘under’ at 7-2 in the last nine games played in Boston. The last game between these two clubs was on Jan. 30. Boston walked away with the 86-78 win, covering the 5 ½-point spread. That ATS win for the Celtics was the fourth straight in head-to-head action against Detroit.

L.A. Lakers at Phoenix – 3:30 p.m. EST

The famed rivalry between L.A. (48-11 SU, 31-28 ATS) and Phoenix (33-25 SU, 22-33-2 ATS) will get underway in ABC's final coverage of afternoon action. The Lakers are 9-2 SU in their last 11 road games and 10-5 ATS in the last 15 overall, but a 2-3 ATS stint in the last five gives us reason for concern.

The last three ATS defeats have seen L.A. installed as high as an 9 ½-point favorite while the offense has hindered the collection process at the window by scoring 101.7 PPG (compared to 116 PPG in the team’s last four ATS victories). Again the offense stands front and center as a recent six-game ATS winning streak from Jan. 30 to Feb. 8 was marked by the Lakers finding the bucket for 116.5 PPG. The main theme behind the ATS losses is offensive production at 107.1 PPG versus 110.3 PPG during ATS victories. While the difference might not be drastic it’s still worth noting.

The Lake Show is 6-2 ATS in their last eight games as the visiting favorite. However, take heed to the fact that after coming off a loss in Denver on Friday (90-79), L.A. is just 4-6 ATS off a SU loss and 12-15 ATS off an ATS defeat. Kobe Bryant an company had major problems finding the hoop in that loss against the Nuggets, shooting an unrecognizable, 29.8 percent from the field and a page jumping, 9.5 percent from outside the three-line (2-for-21).

Phoenix is on a run of its own, posting a 5-1-1 ATS record in the last seven home stints. Even without productive scorer, Amare Stoudemire (eye) in the lineup, the Suns have posted a mesmerizing, 119.8 PPG in their last five games despite going an uneventful, 3-2 SU and ATS.

What we can hang our hat on is an 8-2 record on the ‘over’ in the last 10 games (11-4 in the last 15). Through this stretch, Phoenix games have averaged a total score of 236.7 PPG, 17.2 PPG higher then what books have been listing (219.5 PPG total in the last 10).

The Suns are just 12-16 ATS as the home favorite this season with a low point margin of five PPG. Gearing up for four games away from home, Phoenix is 8-7 ATS in home games played just before departing on a road trip. And then there’s the dismal 11-18-1 ATS record when playing off one-day of rest. The Suns will be heading into Sunday after racking up a 133-113 ‘W’ over Toronto on Friday.

Cleveland at Atlanta – 8:00 p.m. EST on ESPN

The television finally to a long day in hoops will end in Atlanta as the Hawks (33-25 SU, 30-27-1 ATS) look to build on a 91-83 win over Miami on Friday. The Cavaliers (45-12 SU, 37-20 ATS) took a blow against Houston (93-74) on Thursday as 3 ½-point favorites only to bounce back in with a ‘W’ in San Antonio as four-point faves.

This contest in Atlanta will be Cleveland’s third road-game of a four-game set, ending in Miami on Monday. Coming of a SU win, the Cavs are 25-19 ATS followed by a 22-14 ATS record after coming off an ATS victory. And then there’s the 16-12 ATS performance after just a day of rest.

But if you’re on Atlanta in this one then entertain your choice at the window with Cleveland’s 4-6 ATS record versus teams in the Southeast division this season and an ATS loss in December against the Hawks. In fact Atlanta won outright in that contest, 97-92, not needing the four points allocated by most books.

Continuing on head-to-head results stands a 4-1 ‘over’ frequency in the last five meetings and the Cavs’ 5-3 ATS run in the last get-togethers. The favorite is 16-6 ATS in the last 22 meetings while Cleveland is 7-2 ATS in its last nine games played in Atlanta.

The Cavaliers on once again on a hot streak, posting six wins SU and ATS in their last seven. Cleveland has outscored the opposition by 10 full PPG (96.7 to 86.7). And it’s been a solid defensive effort that has the ‘under’ at 6-3 in the last nine.

The Hawks will enter this contest with a 7-1 ATS run in their last eight games played against the Central Division.

Re: NBA News and Notes Sunday 3/1

What bettors need to know: NBA on ABC
By MATT SEVERANCE

Detroit Pistons at Boston Celtics (-9.5, 180.5)

Musical Chairs


Coincidence or not, A.I. sat out for Detroit on Friday because of a sore back, and the Pistons went out and played one of their best games of the season, ending an eight-game losing streak, their longest in 14 years, with a 93-85 win at Orlando as 9.5-point underdogs.

Iverson has been moved to a sixth-man role, but he is expected to miss for Sunday's game because of a sore back. Richard Hamilton exploded in his return to the starting lineup Friday with 31 points, six assists and three assists in 40 minutes. Backcourt mate Rodney Stuckey also broke out of a slump with 22 points against the Magic.

"I think they kind of had a point to prove," Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy of the Pistons said to the Orlando Sentinel. "I know Rip did."

Really the only downer for Detroit on Friday was the fact its bench only scored nine points, although that total no doubt will be significantly greater when Iverson comes back. He stayed back in Detroit to have an MRI on his back, which was negative. Pistons coach Michael Curry says Iverson's status as the sixth man will last the rest of the season.

"Neither one of those guys want to come off the bench, but that's sort of the hand we're dealt, and that's where we're at right now," Curry said of Hamilton and Iverson, adding that Iverson has matured and thus won't pout because of his new role.

Lost and found

The Celtics enter off a Friday win over Indiana in Stephon Marbury's first game with the club. Starbury finished with eight points and two assists in 13 minutes. He got a standing ovation when he entered the first time.

"He still had the timing, which you usually don't have," coach Doc Rivers said to reporters.

Marbury's arrival seemed to spur starting point guard Rajon Rondo, who had a career-high 17 assists.

Paul Pierce played through a dislocated thumb and scored 16 points in 39 minutes against the Pacers, although he admitted he was a little hesitant because he was worried about contact on the thumb.

Pierce will continue playing through the pain, but Boston will be without Kevin Garnett again on Sunday. The Celtics have managed well without KG this season posting a 6-1 mark, but they haven’t been nearly as good against the spread with just three covers in the seven games.

Los Angeles Lakers at Phoenix Suns (N/A)

No Nash, no problem


These two played in Los Angeles on Thursday night, with the Lakers rolling to a 132-106 victory over the Steve Nash-less Suns. Nash, who sprained his ankle Tuesday, also missed Friday's 133-113 win over Toronto.

Coach Alvin Gentry said Nash probably could have played Friday if it was a playoff game, but Nash's status is still in question for Sunday. Phoenix is 2-4 ATS without him this year.

Gentry started forward Matt Barnes on Friday in Nash's place, although Grant Hill (back at small forward) was the main ball-handler, finishing with 12 assists. Louis Amundson came out of nowhere off the Phoenix bench and had his first-ever double-double with a career-high 20 points to go along with 10 rebounds and four blocks.

Sunday's game is the start of a killer stretch for Phoenix, with seven consecutive games against teams with winning records.

Bench woes

As good as the Lakers looked in Thursday's win over Phoenix, they were equally bad the following night against Denver. Los Angeles registered a season-low point total in the 90-79 loss to the Nuggets a day after tying its season high (132 against Phoenix).

The Lakers shot a season and nearly franchise-worst 29.8 percent against Denver. Fatigue certainly could have been a factor. Friday’s contest in Denver was the Lakers' third game (and third time zone) in four nights.

"That was a garbage game, no doubt about it," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said.

The Los Angeles reserves were outscored 47-7. Jackson has been critical of the second unit, which has struggled since Lamar Odom was moved back into the starting lineup when Andrew Bynum went down. Jackson has hinted that starter Luke Walton may start to see more time with the second unit. L.A. is now 11-2 since Bynum was injured (8-5 ATS).

The Lakers are 3-0 against Phoenix this season (2-1 ATS), winning twice by double-digits.

Re: NBA News and Notes Sunday 3/1

Sunday Research
By Indiancowboy

Lakers vs. Phoenix

Sure, I lean on the Lakers a bit as they are the better team, they have beat this Phoenix team the last four times, and the Lakers come off a loss, but with over 77% of the public on the Lakers and Phoenix at home with some revenge, just going to stay away. A small lean on the over.

New Orleans vs.New Jersey

Nearly 70% of the public favor New Orleans as the road chalk here. NO beat this team at home by 10 at home earlier this year in what was a relatively competitive game. NO comes off 3 straight wins, but 3 failed covers. NJ comes off a big win over Chicago and Philadelphia at home. A small lean on the over as NJ has some revenge and they are likely to be an active dog.

Houston vs. Minnesota


Houston comes off a brutal loss at Chicago, which I am thankful for. They have been covering at a decent run and usually when a team loses their star player they go on a great ATS run - take a look at the Lakers for example when they lost Bynum. I know the public is on Houston here but they are likely to cover and Minnsota just does not have any depth and Houston undoubtedly wants to remain in the playoff hunt.

San Antonio vs. Portland

Having no Duncan for this game or listed as questionable, and the Blazers having revenge, the line has jumped to 4 points. I just don't want to go against a Spurs team off a loss, but they will have to play incredible defense today as they just do not have the firepower to likely compete against Portland. A lean on the under here as this is the only choice for the Spurs to even remain competitive but Portland has revenge and are relatively healthy and will look to get it today.

Cleveland vs. Atlanta

With over 75% on the Cavs here as they come off a big win at San Antonio off a terrible loss at Houston, I think Atlanta stays competitive here. Remember, this is Hotlanta on the weekend and the Hawks although a bit banged up still have Johnson, Williams and Horoford. A small lean on the Hawks and the over here.

Toronto vs. Dallas

Toronto is relatively healthy, they just have no bench whatsoever. Nevertheless, with the public hawking over Dallas and Toronto coming off a loss, I think they stay competitive from start to finish. This game likely goes slightly over as well as Toronto is likely to be competitive.

Utah vs. Golden State


Utah has revenge against this team for beating them by 20 points last time which is why they are a 5 point favorite here as they look for that revenge on the road with Boozer this time. Utah has now won 7 in a row and 9 of their last SU and covered 8 of their last 10 as well. I know they are the public fav here, but with revenge, and the fact that GS is banged up pretty badly with likely no Jackson, Ellis listed day to day, and Biedrins listed as questionable, a lean on Utah.
