NBA Handicapping: Oklahoma City looks to snap skid vs. Memphis

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Memphis at Oklahoma City -5 O/U 193.5

Some good notes on Oklahoma City who allowed 100+ for a fourth straight game on Tuesday. Heading into tonight's game vs. Memphis, the Thunder have dropped three straight and are on a 2-6 ATS slide.


“It’s not something that we can continue to play defensively like this. But one of the things I know about our group, we’ve been together for a while, in an NBA season you’re going to have some ups and downs. You just got to stay with what we do and keep believing in each other and our guys have always done that. So I’m very confident that it’s going to continue to be that way. But we have to be better defensively. That’s three games now it’s not up to our level and we have to fix that immediately.”

NBA Handicapping: Oklahoma City primed for better defensive showing

Cleveland at Oklahoma City -14.5 O/U 204

Following three games in which they allowed 103 or more, the Oklahoma City Thunder are eager to get to their defensive ways. Note that tonight’s total vs. Cleveland was bet up from 202 to 204.


“It doesn’t matter who we are playing, we know we need to be better on the defensive end right now,” Collison said. “That’s the focus coming into the game, to be a lot better fundamentally. We’re not changing anything in our game plan, we just have to do it better.”

NBA Handicapping: Oklahoma City's Perkins out with groin injury

02.25.2014     02:49 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Good article on the potential impact of Kendrick Perkins' injury. Perkins recently had surgery on his groin and is expect to miss over a month. Oklahoma City is 0-3 without him though the three losses came against quality competition (Clippers twice, Warriors). Statistically, OKC's offensive efficiency is much higher when he's on the pine and he only plays about 20 minutes per game. Rookie Steven Adams is expected to see increased playing time.


“He’s one of those guys that sacrifice and puts it all on the line for his team,” Durant said of Perkins prior to this season as the 11th-year center returned from hefty criticism following last year’s second-round loss to Memphis. “He’s a guy that I go to war with every single night and a brother for life, so I’m behind him 110 percent.”

If you didn't watch the game you know damn well you checked the box score at multiple media outlets to make sure there wasn't some sort of error.

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Boston Celtics at Oklahoma City Thunder

Boston at Oklahoma City -9 O/U 194.5
Recommendation: Under


Oklahoma City is off an especially draining 115-111 victory at Minnesota last night which likely creates a less energetic effort here. They needed a 38-24 fourth quarter which saw Kevin Durant go into complete takeover mode scoring 23 points including four crucial ones in the final minute. Oklahoma City was focused on snapping its three-game losing streak at Minnesota and exerted itself accordingly so again, the gas tank should be a bit emptier in this back-to-back spot. Boston had yesterday off which leaves them fresher for this game as they look to erase some horrendous shooting the past couple of games. A ridiculously poor -14.6% FG shooting differential (Celtics hit 34.8%, Hornets 49.4%) Friday night against New Orleans didn’t prevent the Celtics form covering the +3.5 point closing number. Head coach Brad Stevens stated some frustration with Boston’s three losses of three points or less in their last seven games but as indicated by Friday’s box score, they are playing with heart. Boston’s road defense over 15 games shows them allowing only 95.7 points per game and Read more

NBA Betting Alert: OKC's Westbrook out, Thunder now -7 vs. Bobcats

12.27.2013     02:16 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Fresh off a triple-double on Christmas, Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook will have knee surgery and be out until after the All-Star break which comes out to 27 games. The Thunder are currently a half-game behind Portland for first place in the Northwest Division and play the Trail Blazers three times prior to the break. Tonight's game at Charlotte opened OKC -9 but has since moved to -7 following news of Westbrook's injury.

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: Oklahoma City Thunder at Portland Trail Blazers

Oklahoma City +2.5 at Portland O/U 205
Recommendation: Oklahoma City


Here’s the quote from Pacers head coach Frank Vogel, following Portland’s four-point win over Indiana on Monday: “They made big shots all game long. Hopefully that's what it's going to take to beat this team – making impossible shot after impossible shot."

Portland isn’t the best team in the Western Conference, and their 15-3 start to the season might well be their high point of the campaign.  I’m not saying the Blazers are bad, but I am saying that this team isn’t going to hit contested jumpers to the tune of 105 points per game average for the entirety of the season.  The Blazers have only one way to go from here, from a SU and ATS perspective, and that’s down!

Oklahoma City has come on like a freight train since their sluggish start to the season, reeling off eight straight wins (6-2 ATS) coming into tonight.  That stretch Read more

NBA Handicapping: Denver Nuggets pretty much can't stop anyone

Denver at Oklahoma City -9 O/U 210.5

Denver's had a tough go of it on the defensive end of the floor allowing 100+ points in six of its first nine games. The only teams that failed to top 100 were Utah (30th offensive efficiency), Sacramento (21st) and the LA Lakers (24th).


"Right now, I think poor," he said. "The last two games, we've taken a step back, especially the latter part of the games, the fourth quarters, where we've given up 30-point fourth quarters. You can't do that and expect to win. So, when we are able to get back, we'll show in a film session what it looks like. When we are able to get back on the floor and practice, a lot of the emphasis will be on the defensive end."

We've got to get better as a team defensively," J.J. Hickson said. "It's a process. Definitely our help-side defense (needs Read more

NBA Betting News: Memphis Grizzlies and Miami Heat go up 3-1

Submitted by Stat Intelligence

The night is running late so let’s jump right into the numbers…

Memphis 103, Oklahoma City 97 (in overtime)

2-Point Percentage: Oklahoma City 42%, Memphis 42%

3-Point Shooting: Oklahoma City 9/20, Memphis 6/17

Free Throws: Oklahoma City 20/22, Memphis 25/29

1’s and 2’s: Oklahoma City 70, Memphis 85

Rebounds: Oklahoma City 44, Memphis 41

Turnovers: Oklahoma City 15, Memphis 7

An inverse of Game One. This time, it was Oklahoma City as the road team blowing a big lead (up 17 at one point), so Memphis as the home team could “steal” a win. The Grizzlies had to go overtime to do it. In fact, Oklahoma City won G1 by a 93-91 score, while this one went OT at 94-94. Those two cancel out. The other two games in the series were 6-point Memphis wins (one at each site).

Average Regulation Result: Memphis by 2.5

Memphis is now +17 in turnover differential, which Read more
