HOUSTON ROCKETS (64-30) at GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS (75-17)


2015-05-19

The Rockets look to carry the magic from last round into this Game 1 meeting with the Warriors at Oracle Arena Tuesday.



Houston trailed 3-1 in its series with the Los Angeles Clippers and ended up fighting its way back into it to win Game 7 113-100 as 2.5-point underdogs at the Toyota Center. The Warriors didnt face quite as big of a deficit but they were down 2-1 against the Grizzlies and ended up winning the next three games. The Warriors were dominant in their Game 6 win at Memphis, defeating the Grizzlies 108-95 as a 5-point favorite. They hit 50.6percent of their shots and held Memphis to just 37.4percent shooting. Both teams enter this series having won-and-covered in their past three games. The Warriors, however, won both SU and ATS in their four meetings with the Rockets this season. They are, however, just 3-3 both SU and ATS over the past three seasons when facing Houston at Oracle Arena. The Rockets are 8-0 ATS on Tuesday nights this season and 24-10 ATS after a win by 10 points or more as well. The Warriors, meanwhile, are 20-7 ATS after two straight wins by 10 points or more this season. Houston remains without SG K.J. McDaniels (Elbow), PF Donatas Motiejunas (Back) and PG Patrick Beverley (Wrist). Golden State is likely to be without PF Marreese Speights (Calf) in Game 1 and C Ognjen Kuzmic (Ankle) is out for the year.



The Rockets seemed like they were down for the count in their series with the Clippers, but they came back and showed a lot of guts in doing so. SG James Harden (26.7 PPG, 8.0 APG, 4.8 RPG, 1.3 SPG in playoffs) was outstanding in Game 7, finishing with 31 points, eight assists, seven rebounds and three steals in 43 minutes of action. He struggled against the Warriors in the regular season though, averaging 25.3 PPG on a lousy 40.5percent shooting from the field. Hell need to be efficient in this series and will likely need to put his team on his back if it is going to advance. C Dwight Howard (17.2 PPG, 13.8 RPG, 2.5 BPG in playoffs) has looked like his old self throughout the playoffs and averaged 18.7 PPG and 17.0 RPG in the final three games last series. Hell need to control the paint against the Warriors in this one. PF Josh Smith (12.9 PPG, 5.8 RPG in playoffs) provided a huge spark to the Rockets when he was introduced to the starting lineup in Game 5 last series. He averaged 14.3 PPG as a starter and played well on both sides of the ball. His matchup with Draymond Green will come a long way in determining who wins this series. SF Trevor Ariza (13.2 PPG, 6.8 RPG, 2.7 APG, 1.7 SPG in playoffs) will be the x-factor for Houston. He is one of the teams best outside shooters and will be counted on to defend Stephen Curry at times in this series.



The Warriors needed PG Stephen Curry (28.2 PPG, 6.8 APG, 5.1 RPG, 1.8 SPG in playoffs) to find his game when the team went down 2-1 last round and he did just that. Curry was huge for the Warriors in the final three games of the series, scoring 32+ points in two of those games. He was 18-for-35 from the outside in those contests and will need to keep shooting well from behind the arc. Houston is weak at the point guard position and he could really take over this series. SG Klay Thompson (20.7 PPG, 4.2 RPG, 2.8 APG in playoffs) will be crucial in this series. He averaged 21.5 PPG, 4.3 APG, 4.0 RPG against Houston during the regular season and 1.8 BPG and 1.5 SPG on the defensive end as well. Hell need to be on his game defensively against James Harden in order for this team to advance. PF Draymond Green (13.8 PPG, 10.1 RPG, 5.1 APG, 2.1 SPG in playoffs) is going to need to be tough in this series. The Rockets have a lot of talent at their forward positions and Green will need to be able to defend both outside and inside in this series. Hes also going to need to knock down some outside shots in order to keep Houston honest defensively. C Andrew Bogut (5.3 PPG, 8.3 RPG, 2.0 BPG in playoffs) has not been much of a factor offensively in these playoffs, but he has played well on defense and that is why he is on this team. Hell need to hold his own against Dwight Howard or it will be a long series for the Warriors.




NBA: Steve Kerr says he spoke with Knicks Phil Jackson on weekend
2014-04-29

Kerr said he had dinner with Jackson, his former coach and the new Knicks team president, on Friday night and they talked again Sa Apuestas Deportivas turday. Kerr is in New York to work the game between the Brooklyn Nets and Toronto Raptors for TNT.
"Theres a lot to cover on both sides and this was the first time weve talked about the job. It just opened up last week and so weve got a lot of things to discuss," Kerr said.

Jackson fired Mike Woodson and the rest of the Knicks coaching staff after a 37-45 season, and again said he wasnt interested in returning to coaching.

Though Kerr has never been a coach, he has been mentioned as a candidate for the job since Jackson was hired in March. Jackson said last week he hoped to speak with Kerr soon to see gauge his desire to do the job, and it definitely interests Kerr.

"How could it not?" Kerr said. "I mean, its the Knicks and its Phil Jackson, my coach. So Id be crazy not to look into it."

Kerr said he has wanted to coach since stepping down as Phoenix Suns general manager in 2010. He won three titles playing for Jackson in Chicago, and agreed with his former coach that they have similar views of the game.

"I know Phil last week said we share the same space, which I think is well said," Kerr said. "We share a lot of the same philosophies. I learned a lot of my basketball from him and Tex Winter, and so I think its safe to say that we have a lot of the same ideas."

Winter taught the triangle offense and was a longtime Jackson assistant when he used the system to win an NBA-record 11 championships as a coach. Jackson said he wont insist the Knicks coach run it, but has made clear his belief in it.

Woodson went 109-79 with the Knicks, leading them last season to their first division championship since 1994, but was fired with a year left on his contract. He said Sunday on NBA TV that coaching the team that drafted him out of college was like a "dream come true."


Possible ROY in the NBA 2010-2011 Season
2010-06-25

Although the NBA Draft is less than two weeks away, teams are still finalizing their research and determining the best fit for the bingo online apuestas futbol ir franchise. Undoubtedly, many will struggle in deciding whether it’s best to pursue a player who is NBA ready and able to contribute right away or another player who has tremendous potential but will need seasoning. If a team’s goal is to draft a player capable of winning Rookie of The Year, here are some players they should consider, and all NBA betting will be keeping a close watch on:
Favorites:
• John Wall- Wall is one of the most breathtaking players to enter the draft in years. Although he only spent one year in college, he displayed the skills that have GMs and coaches salivating over him. He has adequate size for a point guard at 6’ 4” and amazing speed. He excels at finishing in transition and or using his adept passing skills to find the open man. He also utilizes an explosive first step in the half court game to get to the rim. All of these qualities translate well to the NBA, where the game is played at a much faster pace. It also must be noted that Wall is accustomed to playing with talented teammates and won’t be intimidated by his NBA surroundings.

• Evan Turner- Turner’s brilliance often gets lost in Wall’s shadow but he may be an equally viable ROY candidate. He has fewer weaknesses than Wall and does virtually everything well. His ability to play both guard positions makes his team’s system less of an issue. He should be able to contribute wherever he is asked.

Contenders

• Wesley Johnson- Johnson has a complete offensive repertoire that should give him the opportunity to put up big stats from the get-go. Long and athletic, he is able to penetrate but has also drastically improved his outside shooting. Skilled in an up-tempo, transition game, Johnson’s chances at the Rookie of the Year Award would be greatly enhanced if drafted by a team like Golden State.

• DeMarcus Cousins- Cousins is likely the draft’s biggest wild-card and whichever team selects him will be getting a high-risk, high-reward player, both in the short term and in the long term. Cousins is a very enigmatic individual whose brilliance on the court is often sullied by his negative attitude. Cousins got into multiple rifts with his coach last year and there are questions about his coachability. He has often battled weight and stamina issues that prevented him from playing more minutes on Kentucky and making an even bigger impact. All the negativities aside, Cousins is an excellent center prospect with all the offensive tools to dominate if he applies himself.

• Luke Babbitt- Babbitt is a player whose stock has soared during the combines and workouts. He has a great inside-outside offensive game and can score in a myriad of ways. His left-handed jumpshot is silky smooth and reminds many of Chris Mullin and he is not afraid of throwing his lanky body into the post and scoring there too. Although a defensive liability, Babbitt is capable of putting up offensive numbers impressive enough to capture ROY, and NBA betting knows a young scorer like this can turn the tides in a close game.

Darkhorses
• Derrick Favors- Although one of the two or three most physically talented players in the draft, Favors proved to be a little raw in his one year at Georgia Tech and may need to mature for a few years before his full potential is realized. Nevertheless, he’s so talented that a solid coaching staff could bring out that potential in his rookie campaign.
• Lance Stephenson- Most people seeing Stephenson’s projection as a late first or early second rounder may be surprised by this projection. However, Stephenson is a top-ten talent who has been dogged by attitude questions, which are reflected in his low projection. But as a player, he is the complete package at point guard with an NBA body and great quickness. He is the real deal on offense and when motivated, on defense as well. Although Stephenson is somewhat of a risk, if he lands with the right coach he may end up being the steal of the draft and an immediate impact player.

Knowing who the next young starts will be is key to successful NBA betting. A young player can make the difference. When placing NBA bets go to www.sportsbook.com where everybody bets.


NBA: Denver at Utah 10:30E ESPN2
2010-04-30

At least for a day, no negative tweets, talk or posturing out of Denver as they held off the first match point of the series again NBA: Raptors invade Atlanta seeking playoff bid
2010-04-09

The Toronto Raptors find themselves in a difficult spot with just four games remaining in the NBA’s regular season. While tie video poker d with the Bulls for the 8th and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference as of this morning, Toronto needs a win in a city it has struggled, Atlanta, all the while hoping to avoid looking ahead to Sunday’s showdown with Chicago. Making matters worse, Raptors star Chris Bosh could be sidelined for the rest of the season. Sportsbook.com has installed the host Hawks as 9-point favorites for Friday’s contest.


Three weeks ago, Bosh helped the Toronto Raptors take advantage of the absence of Atlanta Hawks leading scorer Joe Johnson. While Johnson might be out again Friday night in Atlanta, the Raptors won’t be able to rely on Bosh this time. Attempting to close in on the Eastern Conference’s final playoff berth, Toronto will try to overcome the loss of its leading scorer and rebounder and win in Atlanta for the first time in nearly 2 1/2 years.


Bosh made a 16-foot jumper with 2.1 seconds left in a 106-105 home victory over the Hawks on March 17, while Johnson sat with a strained Achilles’. That shot is one of the reasons Toronto (38-40, 35-41-2 ATS) is still battling Chicago for the eighth playoff spot in the East.


The Raptors will have to beat out the Bulls without Bosh, who’s expected to be sidelined for “weeks” while recovering from surgery to repair a facial fracture. The All-Star forward, whose averaging career bests of 24.0 points and 10.8 rebounds, suffered the injury when he took an inadvertent elbow from Cleveland forward Antawn Jamison in a 113-101 loss Tuesday.


The next night, Hedo Turkoglu bumped heads with Boston’s Tony Allen as Toronto dropped its third straight, 115-104. Turkoglu remains day-to-day after a CT scan showed no major injuries.


“When it rains it pours, I guess,” swingman Antoine Wright said. “We’re dropping like flies right now.” The spread losses are piling up as well with 4-14 ATS record after allowing 100 or more points.


Those injuries could hurt the Raptors, who are 6-13 ATS off SU loss, during a pivotal two-game stretch against the Hawks (49-29, 44-33-1 ATS) and Bulls, who visit Toronto on Sunday.


Heading to Atlanta doesn’t seem like a good way to begin as they’re winless in four trips (1-3 ATS) since a 100-88 victory Dec. 11, 2007. The Raptors, though, could have an opportunity to snap that skid if Johnson misses his fourth straight game with a sprained right thumb.


Before the loss in March, the Hawks had won four straight over Toronto with their leading scorer (21.2 ppg) in the lineup, including the first two meetings this season. In the previous matchup in Atlanta, they broke a Philips Arena scoring record with a 146-115 victory Dec. 2. Al Horford scored 24 points to lead nine Hawks players in double figures.


Atlanta, though, has scored 94.3 points per game - 7.3 below its season average - over its last nine contests, topping 100 just once. Despite those scoring struggles, the Hawks have won 10 straight at home (6-4 ATS), their longest streak since taking 20 straight from Nov. 12, 1996-Feb. 12, 1997.


Adding to that run would give Atlanta its first 50-win season since 1997-98 and also help in the race for the East’s No. 3 seed. The Hawks enter Friday tied with Boston with four games remaining for both clubs and they are 6-2 ATS if their opponent cracked the century mark in points in previous outing.


They’ll face a Raptors team that’s allowed at least 113 points in four straight games and an average of 108.7 during a 7-16 stretch. That could help the Hawks deliver a better performance than in Wednesday’s 90-88 loss at Detroit. Against a team that was missing five players, Atlanta blew a nine-point lead, getting outscored 25-16 in the fourth quarter.


Sportsbook.com released the Hawks as nine-point favorites with total of 202.5 in this battle of Eastern Conference clubs fighting for positioning in the playoffs. Atlanta is 14-4 ATS vs. Atlantic Division teams and 9-3 OVER off a spread loss.


Toronto is 4-1-1 ATS in last six road encounters, but 9-23 ATS if last outing was double digit loss. The Raptors are 7-3 OVER after a spread defeat.
