There are 7 teams in the NBA allowing less than 95 ppg
Versus these teams
Cleveland on the road 5-6 versus tonights total of 181
Atlanta at home 5-6
Atlanta averages 96 ppg..
In all their playoff games they have surpassed this total (home and away) once at Miami on 4.29...they have scored 90 or less 6 of the 9.... 5 of those 85 or less...
thought I would pass along my notes as I work through the games...there is no set (right or wrong) way to handicap so chime in..it's always nice to see varying opinions
Re: Makers NBA
You can credit Denver's defense as the key to their success this year..allowing 100 PPG versus 107 last year...while I don't have the stats (points allowed first/second half season) ..their o/u versus winning teams shows improvement pre/post the AI trade
first half of the year 10-12 ....second half 7-17 o/u......
