NBA: Streaks, Tips, Notes
San Antonio at Brooklyn
Spurs ejected from the AT&T Center by the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo opened it's grueling nineteen day, nine game road swing in the Big Easy defeating Pelicans 102-95 as 3.5 point favorites then followed it up with a 125-118 double-overtime win at Wizards last night as 2 point favorite. The 'Rodeo Boys' consistent during these treks are now 37-16 SU the past 53 during the excursions cashing 32 tickets (32-19-2 ATS). Coach Pop's troops have been a very good bet versus Brooklyn/New Jersey Nets in recent meetings. Spurs defeating Nets earlier this season have won 20-of-21 regular season encounters including a sparkling 9-1 SU/ATS mark playing in Nets backyard. The trusted NBA database also tells us Spurs are 7-1 ATS on the road this year vs the Eastern Conference, 5-2 ATS on the road playing without rest, 7-3 ATS away vs a team with a losing record.

Thursday's NBA Tips
By Kevin Rogers
Spurs at Nets
San Antonio: 36-13 SU, 24-25 ATS
Brooklyn: 21-25 SU, 22-24 ATS
We'll see how much gas the Spurs have left in the tank following last night's 125-118 victory in double-overtime at Washington. San Antonio overcame a 14-point halftime deficit to eventually force overtime and did so without point guard Tony Parker, who left after 19 minutes with tightness in his lower back. The Spurs are currently 2-0 SU/ATS on their current seven-game Rodeo Road Trip which will extend through the All-Star break, but Parker is expected sit out tonight's action at the Barclays Center.
The Nets snapped a three-game skid with Monday's 108-102 home win over the struggling 76ers, but Brooklyn failed to cash as nine-point favorites. Joe Johnson sat out the game with tendonitis in his right knee, but the Nets' shooting guard is expected to play tonight after missing just his second game of the season. Since late December, the Nets have won eight of 10 home contests, with the two losses coming to the Thunder and Raptors in the past two weeks.
The last time the Nets and Spurs hooked up in San Antonio on New Year's Eve, Gregg Popovich's team cruised to a 113-92 triumph as 12-point favorites. Johnson, Deron Williams, and Kevin Garnett combined to shoot 8-of-24 from the field in the loss, while Brooklyn allowed 51% shooting from the floor. The Spurs have won six straight meetings in the series, including each of the last three visits to New Jersey/Brooklyn.
San Antonio has played well with no rest recently, winning six of its last seven on the second of a back-to-back, while covering five times in this span. With Parker and Manu Ginobili out already, don't be surprised if Tim Duncan takes a seat as well tonight following the double-overtime win at Washington. The Spurs have thrived in this situation without their "big three" on a Thursday TNT game, beating the Warriors as seven-point underdogs on December 19 in a 104-102 triumph.
Bulls at Warriors
Chicago: 24-24 SU, 22-26 ATS
Golden State: 29-20 SU, 21-26-2 ATS
Following two sub-par offensive performances at New Orleans and Sacramento, the Bulls bounced back nicely with a 101-92 victory at Phoenix to snap a two-game skid. Chicago plays the fifth game of a six-game road swing tonight, as the Bulls have limited the first four opponents to less than 100 points. The win over the Suns marked the first time that Tom Thibodeau's team busted the 100-point mark in regulation since scoring 103 points against the 76ers on January 16, a span of 10 games.
The Warriors were humbled early in Monday's home setback to the Bobcats, 91-75 as 10½-point favorites. Mark Jackson's club scored 18 points or less in three of the four quarters, while the Warriors shot a poor 31% from the floor in the team's second loss to Charlotte this season. Golden State has hit the 'under' in five straight games, while allowing 92 points or less in each of these contests. The Warriors won 10 straight games from late December through early January, but Golden State has covered just three of its last 12 games, while posting a 2-5 SU/ATS record the past seven contests at Oracle Arena.
The Bulls swept the season series from the Warriors last season, including a 113-95 rout as four-point road underdogs last March. The underdog has covered each of the six meetings at Oracle Arena, while the Warriors last cashed in the home favorite role over the Bulls in November 2005. Chicago is on fire in the road 'dog role recently, cashing seven of the last nine opportunities away from the United Center.
