NBA Betting Recap: Lakers' Surreal-ity TV...If It Was a Movie Script, You Wouldn't Believe It!

On a night with so many side-by-side stories breaking in basketball…the biggest drama involved the incredible turnarounds that could loom very large in the 2013 Los Angeles Lakers Saga.

*Utah, currently #8 in the Western Conference standings, led Cleveland (20-40 and playing out the string) by a score of 76-68 entering the fourth quarter.

*Utah lost the fourth quarter 36-25 to a team with nothing to play for, and dropped their fifth game in the last six outings to further tighten the choke collar that’s been around their neck.

*The LA Lakers, starting an hour later than Utah, fell way behind New Orleans on night two of a back-to-back. They spent much of their evening figuring they were going to take a hit in the standings. Entering the fourth quarter, the Lakers trailed New Orleans 93-75.

*Buoyed by the great news from Cleveland, the Lakers won the fourth quarter 33-9…that’s THIRTY-THREE to NINE on the road on night two of a Read more

NBA Handicapping: Dallas hopes to avoid getting run out of the gym vs. Houston

Houston at Dallas -2 O/U 222.5

Everyone knows the Houston Rockets like to push the pace and score in transition. But what they did the Dallas on Sunday (136-103 win) was pretty amazing/embarrassing. There are conflicting reports on exactly how many fast break points the Rockets had (it was north of 35) but Dallas head coach Rick Carlisle referred to the amount as an "intergalactic record." They reportedly worked on transition defense in practice but if you read some of the quotes, the Mavericks seem well aware of the fact that they just can’t seem to guard anyone.

“They only had 41, which is an intergalactic record,” Carlisle said.

“They sliced and diced us, particularly in the third quarter,” he said of Houston’s 44-17

NBA Handicapping: A look at the Dallas Mavericks from a W-L and ATS perspective

Submitted by Stat Intelligence

There was an article at Grantland yesterday that talked about how Dallas has picked up its tempo this year in a way that’s created offensive efficiency…particularly since Dirk Nowitzki returned to the starting lineup on January 5. One of the main points the author was trying to make was that Dallas has been playing winning basketball since Dirk was ready to go as a starter…

“Since he returned to the starting lineup on January 5, the team is a much more respectable 12-11 with an even healthier scoring margin of +3.8. Since that date, this year’s group has posted an offensive rating of 107.2, which would tie them for fourth in the league had it been their mark for the entire season and falls just short of the team’s championship-level figure.”

NBA Handicapping: Dallas Mavericks in favorable spot vs. Orlando Magic

Orlando at Dallas -11.5 O/U 206

Article on Dallas' propensity for slow starts. Rick Carlisle said the Mavericks have the league's worst point differential the first six minutes of the game. What Dallas has been successful with is beating teams at home who are on the second night of back-to-backs. In that situation they are 11-2 SU and 9-4 ATS (7-0 SU/ATS streak). Tonight's opponent Orlando lost at home to Charlotte last night.

“We’ve struggled all year with starting games,” coach Rick Carlisle said. “In fact, we’re the worst team in the league in the first six minutes of the game. It’s a challenge we got to take on.”

Hey Los Angeles Lakers…hey Portland Trailblazers…hey Dallas Mavericks…the Houston Rockets aren’t interested in taking a powder the rest of the NBA season and handing away their playoff spot to any of you guys!

In fact, the way the Rockets played tonight, the teams above them in the Western Conference playoff race will need to start looking in the rearview mirror. Particularly the team they beat, current #7 seed…the Utah Jazz.

3-Point Shooting: Houston 16/34, Utah 5/18

NBA Handicapping: Schedule has Houston Rockets running on fumes

Submitted by Stat Intelligence

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 Wednesday: Died in Read more

NBA Handicapping: Dallas Mavericks continue to rack up overtime losses

Dallas at Utah -5 O/U 197.5

The Dallas Mavericks have lost 11 of their last 13 (6-7 ATS) heading into tonight's game at Utah. Defense has been a major issue, as has closing out games. The Mavs have yet to win an overtime tilt which doesn't seem all that shocking until you notice they've played seven such contests. Also note that while those results could be considered a bit unlucky, Dallas has also lost eight games by 20 points or more.

"We can't guard anybody," forward Shawn Marion said. "Coach [Rick Carlisle] said it first: It's not at the offensive end, it's the defensive end.

"Some nights you can't control the ball going in and out, but you can control your defense. But when you can't guard anybody, you can't keep anybody in front of you and keep them from just beating you off the dribble, that sums it up.

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Philadelphia 76ers at Charlotte Bobcats

Philadelphia -3.5 at Charlotte O/U 189
Recommendation: Over

After seeing Philadelphia live at Wells Fargo Center Tuesday night versus Dallas, it seems like a good time to step in and look at them from an OVER perspective right now. Offensively, head coach Doug Collins crew operated quicker and much sharper in their sets for the majority of the game. The starting forward tandem of Evan Turner and Thaddeus Young are becoming a handful and figure to be just that for their counterparts Byron Mullens and Michael Kidd-Gichrist tonight. There are other matchups that look exploitable in this game as well. Sixers PG Jrue Holliday fares much better against size than quickness which indicates Bobcats PG Kemba Walker could have a very nice stat line tonight. I like the bench opportunities here too as the Mavericks reserve guards Darren Collison and Vince Carter scored fairly easily when matched with Malik Wayns (Villanova rookie) and Nick Young. That should work here too as Charlotte’s Read more

NBA Handicapping: Washington Wizards remain an absolute mess

Washington at Dallas O/U 192

Making fun of the Washington Wizards never gets old. For whatever reason, this year's group has decided that three-pointers are the key to victory. Unfortunately, they are shooting 27.9%. AJ Price is hoisting 6.8 threes per game (26.8%) while rookie Bradley Beal, who leads the team in scoring at 12.2 ppg, is averaging 4.5 attempts per game (33.3%). The Wizards are 0-6 SU but somehow 3-3 ATS in part because opposing teams have a difficult time taking them seriously.

“When you struggle offensively like that, there are reasons for that,” Coach Randy Wittman said after the Wizards opened the season 0-6 for the second year in a row. “I thought the first quarter was one of our better quarters. We moved the ball fast. Very little holding of the ball. Very little searching for shots.
