NBA Handicapping: The Detroit Pistons probably don't even want to make the playoffs

03.11.2014     08:53 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It is high comedy watching these awful Eastern Conference teams lose on a nightly basis and yet technically remain in the "playoff hunt." The Detroit Pistons, losers of 10 of their last 12, are one of those squads. Following Sunday's 118-111 loss at Boston, it is abundantly clear that the only way the Pistons – or the Knicks for that matter – get into the postseason is by accident.


Defense is poor, transition defense especially so.  The Pistons are the worst free-throw-shooting team in the NBA, the second-worst 3-point-shooting team, and allow the fourth-most points, 103.8 per game.

"I think it's trust, guys trusting each other, guys willing to sacrifice for one another," he said.  "I think that's the main thing, trust and sacrifice."

"He was preaching every night, like, if we want to be great, we've got to hold each other accountable, if he ain't doing this, he ain't doing that, take him out," Jennings said of Billups.  "That's what he was mostly

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Brooklyn Nets at Boston Celtics

Brooklyn -4 at Boston O/U 197.5
Recommendation: Brooklyn


The Nets have officially turned the corner, as they’re playing closer to the potential of their bloated payroll.  They’ve won four straight games, including two impressive performances against the Grizzlies and Bulls earlier this week.  In fact, they manhandled two of the toughest teams in basketball as they make a push towards the Eastern Conference playoffs.  The Nets are currently the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference, which is really the goal, in order to avoid the Heat and Pacers early in the playoffs.  Meanwhile, the 20-41 Celtics are officially going through the motions.  They’ve dropped 7 of their last 8 games, including a troubling blowout loss to the Warriors in their last contest.  The Celtics are an undersized team right now with little resistance at the rim.  Well, that’s the exact kind of team this Nets tend to thrive against with their size across the Read more

NBA Handicapping: Crucial five-game swing for Dallas Mavericks

Portland at Dallas -2.5 O/U 215.5

We've mentioned a couple of times that Dallas' post-All-Star break schedule was tough and thus far they haven't exactly responded well having dropped three straight. The Mavs' next five games could very well define their season: vs. Portland, vs. Indiana, at Golden State, at Utah, and at Oklahoma City. Dallas is currently the eighth seed in the Western Conference; a half game behind Phoenix and a game ahead of Memphis.


“I know we’re tougher than what we showed,” he said of their 115-110 loss at Denver on Wednesday. “And, yeah, this is the first time we’ve dropped three in a row all year, so it’s a time of great urgency.

“And we’ve got to step up, and we’ve got to respond. This is good. We need it. We need to

NBA Gambling: Miami Heat has high volume of games remaining

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Interesting scheduling note for the Miami Heat moving forward. They play the most games of any team in the league the remainder of the regular season including six consecutive four-game weeks. We would imagine at some point that LeBron James and Dwyane Wade will see lesser minutes and even take a few games off.

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Atlanta Hawks at Portland Trail Blazers

Atlanta at Portland -8.5 O/U 217
Recommendation: Over


Whatever limited defensive intensity Atlanta had when they were healthy in the low post has completely dissipated since Al Horford, Pero Antic and Gustavo Ayon got hurt.  It certainly hasn’t improved without Paul Millsap in the lineup either, although Millsap could return to the lineup this evening following an extended injury absence. 

In recent games, the Hawks just allowed the hapless Celtics to hang 115 on them one night after offensively challenged Chicago scored 107 on this D.  For what it’s worth, the Celtics rank #26 in the NBA in scoring, putting up only 95 points per game, while the Bulls rank dead last with a 93 ppg average.  In their last outing, against uptempo Phoenix, the Hawks allowed 129 in a game that flew more than 30 points Over the total.

The betting markets have been lagging behind. Atlanta is now the #2 team in the NBA for Overs this year – only the Read more

NBA Handicapping: Denver Nuggets hold defense-only practice

Dallas -5 at Denver O/U 218.5

No better time than the present – or after losing 11 of 12 – to start talking defense! According to reports, Denver head coach Brian Shaw held an intense, two-hour, defensive-only practice yesterday. Tonight's total vs. Dallas was bet up from 216.5 to 218.5.


"Hopefully, this will kind of eliminate the confusion we've been having," said Shaw, whose team hosts Dallas on Wednesday. "I expect to see significant progress (Wednesday), because we've eliminated a lot of the doubt."

NBA Handicapping: Bettors continue to sweat as Philadelphia 76ers remain stuck on 15 wins

03.04.2014     12:25 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Because they are in the Eastern Conference one would think at 15 wins, the Philadelphia 76ers are going to top their season over/under wins mark of 16/16.5. For bettors holding over or under tickets, it has to be absolutely excruciating. They play the Knicks, Pistons, Bobcats and Celtics at home as well as a few road winnable road games. Pointspread wise you obviously won't see them laying any chalk and based on recent lines against Orlando and Milwaukee, +5 or +6, depending on the spot, is about as low as oddsmakers are likely to go.


"If we don't play better transition defense and don't share the ball, then we have some problems, that is a fact," Brown said. "Because I think there is wins in that locker room if we get back in transition and we just have a chance to guard and we play together."

NBA Handicapping: Clippers seeks payback vs. Suns

LA Clippers -3.5 at Phoenix O/U 218.5

It was over two months ago but the Los Angeles Clippers vividly remember the 19-point beat down they took on their home floor against the Phoenix Suns. Note that Clippers are rested and ready having not played since last Saturday.


"I mean, they just only came to our place and beat our butts," Rivers said. "Other than that, you just got to go play. I'm sure our guys remember that. But so does Phoenix. They feel good about it. So it'll be a tough game, especially without a couple of our scorers, because they score. They create an offensive problem."

NBA Gambling: Oklahoma City laying nearly three touchdowns vs. Philadelphia

With "tank mode" in full effect for a lot of teams, it was only a matter of time before we saw our first 20-point spread of the season. For tonight, Oklahoma City opened -20 vs. Philadelphia and was bet up to -20.5. Not much history to go from in terms of this pointspread range. The Celtics were laying -22.5 vs. the Heat back in 2007 (Boston won 88-62). Overall since 2005, 20-point or more favorites are 4-0 SU, 2-2 ATS.
