NBA 12/16

Thunder -8 @ Sacramento:

OKC is on an absolute tear since getting Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook back.  The Kings are in complete disarray.  Once Demarcus Cousins went out this team just absolutely fell apart.  The firing of their coach, along with Tyrone Corbin at the helm, can’t mean much.  Too much of a well oiled machine in OKC.  Not enough chemistry, or give a shit in Sacramento.  Thunder pull away 111 – 91.

Memphis -3 vs. Golden State:
It’s almost impossible to bet against the Warriors right now, right?  Wrong!  Yes, we’re looking at a 16 game winning streak team that just got stronger with Andrew Bogut coming back.  The Grindhouse is a hell of a tough place to win a game though.  Memphis will be out to prove something tonight as they’re only two games back of the Warriors.  The Warriors are probably more talented top to bottom, but timing is a big part of sports.  Wrong place and wrong time to play the Grizzlies.  Warriors fall 103 – 94.

Dallas -7 @ Knicks:
The Knicks play competitively at home, but there’s troubles in their locker room and they simply do not play defense.  That’s a bad combination against a Dallas team that has tons of team chemistry and absolutely lights up the scoreboard on every team in the NBA.  No chance we’re taking the Knicks here.  Dallas smokes NYK 110 – 92.

Jazz vs. Pelicans Under 197:

There’s inside presence on both teams to make scoring inside difficult.  The Pelicans are an all or nothing team, they’re either fantastic from the outside, or they absolutely suck.  We’re betting on them sucking tonight against an uninspiring Jazz squad.   Either way, Utah is nothing special on the offensive end.  If Derek Favors and Gordon Hayward are at all off then this is a lock, because the Jazz simply go as they go.  We can’t see Favors getting much against the likes of the Uni-Brow.  Final score Pelicans 97 – Jazz 95.

Brooklyn -7.5 vs. Miami:

Let’s be honest, Brooklyn has a bunch of gutless wonder Superstars just out for a payday, but in this case, you can’t bet against them.  Miami without Chris Bosh, and most likely without Dwyane Wade (flu)?  We’re talking no chance here for the Heat.  The only scorer on the floor will be Luol Deng.  If we get any effort from Brooklyn it’s a walkaway.  Brooklyn 95 – Heat 79.

T’Wolves +13 @ Washington/Over 203:

We’ve got two teams that can flat out score the rock.  It’s a little nerve wracking with how great the Wiz have been in transition, and how poor Minnesota’s defense is.  That being said, this line is just too high to see the value in Washington.  Either way, the points will be a solid take, because their should be a plethora of points scored, and pace played in this game.  Take both bets though, because theirs a great chance we’re looking at 111 – 101 Wizards type win.  Never hurts to double up in a night!
