NBA Handicapper Free Pick: Utah Jazz at Los Angeles Lakers

Utah +5 at LA Lakers O/U 205
Recommendation: Utah


I’m a bit disappointed that I haven’t been more aggressive in fading the Lakers during their rough and turmoil filled season but I plan on correcting that tonight with a recommendation on the Utah Jazz as road underdogs.

After watching the Lakers lose once again in Memphis, and hearing the post game comments from Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard – all three sounded negative and uninspired – there is little to no reason to support this squad, especially in the role of a medium-sized favorite. They aren’t playing any sort of defense and team chemistry is completely non-existent right now.  Howard left the game against the Grizzlies with a shoulder injury but is expected to play tonight. Either way, it looks like Howard has checked out mentally as his effort level and competitiveness have been lacking for the majority of the season.

LA is 2-8 SU in their last 10 games and that makes Read more

NBA Handicapping: Houston Rockets have lost nine straight against the spread

Houston at New Orleans -3 O/U 200.5

Back on the road, the Houston Rockets attempt to snap a nine-game losing streak against the spread tonight in New Orleans. Their lone straight up win during that span was a come-from-behind effort at Charlotte. Like most struggling teams, the root of the problem for the Rockets appears to be a lack of defense.


“When we don’t get stops, it doesn’t allow us to get out on transition, where we’re best,” Parsons said. “It should start on the defensive end, all of us, individually and collectively. Focus in on that.”

“You’ve got to start off by protecting the paint,” McHale said. “The best way to protect the paint is having two 7-foot-2 guys who can block shots all over the place. That’s hard to find, so the next best way is to find Read more

NBA Handicapping: Wizards and Rockets your latest ATS streakers

I mentioned last night that several storylines we’ve been following would be in play on the Wednesday night NBA schedule. For the most part, all of those storylines continue unabated. Let’s start with the third game on the Nevada rotation schedule, because it’s barely worth mentioning that Charlotte is still horrible (they lost and failed to cover vs. Atlanta), and Miami is still coasting until the games matter (they had to go overtime to beat Toronto).

*Detroit continued its solid play, losing by only three points as a 6-point underdog in Chicago even though they were playing on night two of a back-to-back. The final score was 85-82. Home court advantage is worth three points typically in the NBA. So, that grades out as the Pistons being even with Chicago. And, THAT’S consistent with what we’ve been talking about lately with the Pistons’ improvement. They’re still playing like a team in the low 80’s (or high 70’s tonight in a Read more

NBA Handicapping: Boston Celtics are the Los Angeles Lakers of the East!

Submmitted by Stat Intelligence

You wouldn’t know this by the won-lost records. Sure, both teams are disappointments. But, Boston is only a game below .500 at 20-21 after losing Tuesday night in Cleveland, while the Lakers have sunk to an astonishing 17-24. The Lakers are now a longshot to make the playoffs unless the teams in front of them stay leapfrog-able (our current "word of the week"). Boston is still in the Eastern brackets, three games clear of the nearest team to catching them.

Yet…

Versus the Weaker Eastern Conference:

Boston: .500 (13-13)

LA Lakers: .500 (8-8)

Versus the Top 5 in the West:

Boston: 1-5 for a .167 winning percentage

LA Lakers 2-7 for a .222 winning percentage

The Lakers are 1-2 against current #6 Denver, but Boston hasn’t had to play them yet

Both Won at Home Against:

NBA Handicapping: Despite offensive surge, New Orleans Hornets thinking defense

New Orleans at San Antonio -8.5 O/U 194

The New Orleans Hornets have seen an uptick in their offensive production of late scoring 111, 112, and 114 in three of their last four games. But head coach Monty Williams isn’t buying the hype. As Williams pointed out, Monday's 114-105 win over Sacramento marked the first time in 16 games the Hornets won while allowing 100 points or more. Taking it a step further, when allowing 100+, New Orleans in 5-12 ATS. When allowing less than 100, a rock solid 17-7 ATS.


“We’ve given up over a hundred in a number of games, and that to me is not a good sign,” Williams said. “We are 1-16 when we give up 100 points. (The first win) happened Monday. I’m more concerned with defense. When we score 100, we give up a lot of points. For us, if we can score between 97 and 95 and hold teams to 90, that for me Read more

NBA Handicapping: Hunter makes coaching debut for train wreck Phoenix Suns

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We mentioned this article on today's Sportsmemo Podcast with Erin Rynning. It discusses Phoenix's decision to promote Lindsey Hunter to head coach as well as assistant Dan Majerle's departure. As for Hunter, rumor has it the Suns are going to play more up-tempo. Of course there has also been talk about becoming more defensive-minded. Note that the Suns haven't played since last Thursday.

NBA Handicapping: Paul listed as a game time decision vs. Oklahoma City

Oklahoma City -1 at LA Clippers O/U 200

Los Angeles' Chris Paul (knee) will be a game time decision for tonight's game against Oklahoma City. Following last night's loss to Golden State, Paul felt that he did more harm than good in terms of trying to play at less than 100 percent. He was noticeably limping throughout the game. The Clippers are 3-0 SU/ATS without Paul this season.


"I'm just mad because I feel like we let a game get away," Paul said. "I didn't feel like I could do what I wanted to do. Me being out there probably hurt us more than it helped us. I feel bad in that regard."

NBA Handicapping: Los Angeles Lakers Lose Again, Washington Wizards Suddenly Magical

Since we’re trying to get a read on where the Los Angeles Lakers stand in the big picture right now, and we just updated the estimated Power Ratings earlier tonight, this seemed like a great time to use those ratings to get a sense of the Lakers' current level of play.

We can take recent victory margins...look at the opponent’s rating...adjust for home court...and abracadabra, we have a quick and dirty estimate for the level the Lakers are playing at.

Dwight Howard returned to the lineup five games ago. That’s ideal because it will give us a median!

The Lakers were 17 points better than Cleveland (72), which equates to an 89

The Lakers were 13 points better than Milwaukee (78), which equates to a 91

The Lakers were 12 points WORSE than Miami (85), which equates to a 73

The Lakers were 2 points WORSE than Toronto (76), which equates to a 74

The Lakers were 9 points WORSE than Chicago (79), which equates to a Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Pick: Houston Rockets at Charlotte Bobcats

Houston -7.5 at Charlotte O/U 208.5
Recommendation: Houston


The Rockets are slumping mightily, losers of seven straight games.  They play at the quickest pace in the NBA, and coinciding with a rough schedule their energy has been sapped.  Six of their seven games on their losing streak have been on the road, while sandwiched around the Clippers.  In all, 13 of their last 18 games have been played on the highway.  Today will finally give them an opportunity to win after their discouraging loss Saturday night against Minnesota.  Of course, the Bobcats are the worst team in the NBA and they’ve continued to struggle covering the number.  Their spread record is under 40%, which is a continued pattern from last season.  The Bobcats are the worst defensive team in the NBA, and the Rockets should garner much easier looks in this game.  Key in this game is the Bobcats sport the second worst three-point defense in the Association.  They allow Read more

NBA Handicapping: Schedule has Houston Rockets running on fumes

You’re about to see what fatigue looks like statistically!

Last week we talked about the brutal schedule stretch that was coming up for the Houston Rockets. They had just defeated the Los Angeles Lakers. But, they were about to embark on a two-week odyssey that would see them play two different four-game-in-five-night stretches with the vast majority of action on the road.

We then suggested the team hit a wall in the fourth quarter in New Orleans the next night (when they were outscored 29-10 to blow a big lead). Then, we monitored developments through the week as the Rockets continued to lose. Tonight’s 105-95 loss at Indiana continued the story. And, I’ve come up with a way that may be the best illustration of what happens to the Rockets when they get tired (for other teams, it may show up in other categories).

First, a quick review of the gauntlet to this point…

Last Tuesday: Big Win over Lakers

Last Wednesday: Died in Read more
