NBA Handicapping: Woeful Cleveland Cavaliers asked to win by margin

02.05.2014     01:05 PM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

LA Lakers at Cleveland -7 O/U 208

Checking in on our favorite crappy NBA team, the Cleveland Cavaliers. Earlier this week we linked to an article that had Luol Deng quoted as saying the team was a "mess." While that statement is almost assuredly accurate, Deng claims it didn’t come from his mouth. It was however confirmed that Dion Waiters was booted from practice. As for tonight's game, Anderson Varejao is expected to start after coming off the bench in Monday's 124-107 loss at Dallas. The Cavs are in a rare and not-very-profitable situation of laying points: 8-8 SU, 4-12 ATS Read more

NBA Handicapping: Short-handed Lakers travel to Houston in back-to-back spot

LA Lakers at Houston -14 O/U 213

The Lakers are an absolute mess with injuries piling up sky high. Already without the service of Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash this is a team that has also seen Steve Blake, Jordan Farmar, and Xavier Henry all succumb to injury as well. As if that wasn’t enough their current leading scorer, Nick Young, is dealing with back issues that have him listed as a game time decision this evening. Los Angeles had just an eight man rotation last night in Dallas as a result.

That, of course, makes matters for this evening’s game against Houston quite difficult. If Young is unable to go the Lakers will have virtually no cover for their starting guards while Pau Gasol, who logged 36 minutes last night, has only Duke rookie Ryan Kelly or Jordan Hill to give him any breathers. Perhaps Chris Kaman will make a rare appearance? How much can we really expect out of any Laker front liner tonight against Dwight Howard though? The last time these teams met Gasol Read more

NBA Handicapping: Lakers desperate for defense heading into road trip

LA Lakers at Oklahoma City -13 O/U 208

The Los Angeles Lakers will attempt to make defense a priority during a four-game road trip that starts tonight in Oklahoma City. They'll try to do so without a point guard as Steve Blake (elbow), Jordan Farmar (hamstring), and Steve Nash (back) are all out with injuries. The Lakers have allowed 100+ in five straight games (107.2 ppg, 2-3 SU/ATS) and rank 19th in the league in defensive efficiency. 


"It's almost like spitting blood out there," D'Antoni said. "There's got to be a little bit more urgency in our game." 

"Points in the paint right now are killing us," D’Antoni said. "We just have to be able to be a little stiffer on defense."

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Phoenix Suns at Los Angeles Lakers

Phoenix +3 at LA Lakers O/U 206
Recommendation: Phoenix


It’s going to be a process before Kobe Bryant gets comfortable in this Lakers lineup.  His quote following the Lakers 12 point home loss to lowly Toronto in his season debut: “My rhythm is completely out of sync.”

Head coach Mike D’Antoni agreed wholeheartedly: “He'll work through his issues, and again, they're baby steps. He's coming back from a tough injury, and he's coming off eight months ... he is human, I think. We have to understand it's going to take the other players around him. It's going to be a little painful at first.”

Kobe Bryant is worth at least two or three points to this spread, but the Lakers are probably at least two or three points WORSE with him back on the floor – for now – as they adjust to new rotations and get their superstar acclimated to game speed.  Let’s not forget the excellent team chemistry this team had without Kobe on the floor for the first five weeks of the season – LA overachieved both SU and ATS.  That makes the Lake-show an easy ‘bet Read more

Numbers and notes from the Sunday Slam. Let’s begin with a very brief recap of the first three games…

*The Lakers said to San Antonio “please put us out of our misery” by scoring only 34 points in the first half, and the Spurs obliged with a 103-82 victory that finished off a 4-0 sweep.

*The Bucks said to Miami “please put us out of our misery” by scoring only 15 points in the fourth quarter, and the Heat obliged with a 88-77 victory that finished off a 4-0 sweep.

*The Celtics said to New York “please put us out of our misery” by scoring 14 points in the third quarter, and 16 points in the fourth quarter (only 2 in the last four minutes)…but Carmelo Anthony missed a jumper with 3:04 left in the regulation, and with 2:23 left in regulation, and with 2:06 left in regulation, then two free throws with 1:50 left in regulation, then another jumper with 0:44 left, and another with 0:19 left… so the Celtics vengefully won in Read more

Utah at Memphis -5 O/U 180

Final day of the NBA regular season and the Utah Jazz are still alive for the eighth seed in the Western Conference. For the Jazz to get in, it's a pretty simple process: win at Memphis and hope the Lakers lose to Houston.


"I guess I need to try to get in touch with Kevin McHale," Al Jefferson said of his former Minnesota coach, now with the Rockets, "and tell him to handle that for me. Give me a late birthday present."
