    Los Angeles Lakers @ Detroit Pistons: Los Angeles Lakers -7 -110 (1.91) Bookmaker

    Detroit has been quite good at home, winning last 5 games. That's a boost that the team had, with 6 wins in 7 games. But since that, they lost 3 on the road, and lost their momentum, has they didn't had any chance to win those games. Lakers are improving a lot, and in the lat games, they only lost on Utah, but they will want to end this roadtrip well. They got a big advantage on the paint, as they will face and old and lazy Ben Wallace, and in the backcourt, Pistons got good players, but some of them are playing with injuries, others will not play, So, they will not produce enough, and with few players in that position, they will have no rotation and it will be prejudicial to Pistons. Against a team with Kobe, it will be hard to Piston even try their chance in this game.


    Cleveland Cavaliers @ Dallas Mavericks: Under 188 -110 (1.91) 5Dimes

    Without Dirk, Mavs always struglles, after all, he is their best player. Kidd is an old player and will have to be the one to take the lead of the mavs game. Kidd is a smart player, and he knows is limit and he is slower than few years ago. So, he will try to make this game a game with a low pace, and press Mo as well.

    Shaquille will play also, and another reason to expect a low scoring game. But even so, Cavaliers is not the kind of team that pressionate to play in a higer pace. They just go with the flow. But I expect today a a bad game to be real, as Dallas needs to improve their home game, and for that, Kidd will take the lead and think all plays. Cleveland are not beeing a smashing team as before, and LeBron is the only key of the team, however, it's unlikely to make him score 50 points, as Clev needs to be intelligent in this game as Mavs.


    Charlotte Bobcats @ New York Knicks: Charlotte Bobcats +4 -110 (1.91) Bookmaker & Charlotte Bobcats ML +160 (2.60) Bookmaker

    Chalotte is one of the best defender teams, second in the league in allowing points, 8th in 3 points and 9th in FG%. And if they wera also one of the worst teams in offense as well, they have improved that a lot after the trades they made. Jackson is a pure scorer, and has give more power to their offense, and the results were immediate. Despite the 1-11 record on road, Charllote in last four road games have won in Washington, blowout loss in San Antonio, loss in OT in Dallas, and a defeat by small margin in Indiana.

    Knicks had a good moment, but this team still needs to improve their game in order to keep a good record. They got some wins, over no-defense teams, or teams that think it would be to easy. The normal game for Knicks is run and gun, however, when they start to miss, they usually miss a lot, and lost.

    Despite the good record of Knicks at home in last games, Charllote is a good defending team and will implant that in today game. When Knicks faces a good defending team, they really strugles, and it's why i think Charlotte got value today.

          Philadelphia 76ers @ Washington Wizards: Over 206 -110 (1.91) The Greek

          Sixiers have adopted a faster game, moving one men of the frontcourt to the bench in exchange for a guard. The results finnaly appear, and after a 11 losing games streak, they finnally won some games and are fighting with the mininum conviction to. Washington are going thru a bad moment, with 1-7 in last 8 games. The teams is under some questions because they have 3 all stars finnally playing togehter and some young that are showing a good improvment, however the results still missing. But today, we will have a game between Sixiers, a team that is starting to play a a kind of run and gun, and Wizards, a team that have great scorer, but is not a good defender. Due to the rumors of trades, I believe that the Wizards players will try to show all they know to try a trade to a good team.


          Detroit Pistons @ Charlotte Bobcats: Charlotte Bobcats -5 -110 (1.91) The Greek

          Even without Wallace and with Jackson leaving the game after half game played, Charlotte gived a good responde in their last game on NY. Even without these 2 players, key players, the team suffered from an last minutes inspiration of Gallinari and and lack of accuracy in those minutes. Today, the team should be ok again to play, and I expect a blowout win.

          Detroit is sufering big problems. They are playing a bad basketball, but it seems unlike to improve it for now, as they got all their best players with problems. Some of those players will not play, other, like Villanueva and Bynum, will play with pains. Without Villanueva in the frontcourt, Ben Wallace doesn't have the age to stand in the paint and make something. Villanueva will probably play, but like he said, he got sharp pains during any step he make. So, it will be hard to make a good performance. Something with Bynum, and that will leave Stuckey alone and without any credible rotation.

          Charlotte is a great defender particulary at home, and will keep saying that after the trades, they had improved their offense to join their good defense. And that's the truth. Facing a broken team is a game easy to play for team, and Detroit haven't any argue to even try to fight for this game.


          Atlanta Hawks vs Minnesota Timberwolves: Minnesota Timberwolves -110 (1.91) Bookmaker & Minnesota Timberwolves ML +375 (4.75) The Greek

          Atlanta is playing a great game, giving blowout losses for those they hosted. However, on the road the conversation is differente. They are not able to smash the opponents as well as they do at home. They are 7-5 on the road, but for example, they lost 2 games in last 4 road game in Detroit and in Chicago. Against desperate teams. Their edge is usually on their big and atlethic frontcourt, with Joe Johnson dishing or scoring points behind. However, Johson made 40 points last game in Chicago, but it wasn't enough to give Atlanta a win. So, this roadtrip they will end only few days after christmas, didn't start well.

          Minnesota will probably have Gomes again today. He is probable, and after Love returned from his injurie, this team had a great improvment. They are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games, and in their last 5 home games they only lost one game without a chance, as they won 2, lost 1 by 1 point and another by 2 points.

          Timberwolves have concentration and the will to win today SU. It will not be easy, but this is a real chance, as they strong enough to hold Atlanta frontcourt, and have two great and motivated guards behing. Atlanta is losing some "gas" when facing teams that give their blood in the field to try their chances, and on the road, they are not so strong. Johson could be again their hero today, as they will have troubles in frontcourt, but its unlikely to happen, as he already made a great performance last game, and it's hard to expect another performance as his last.

            Golden State Warriors @ Memphis Grizzlies: Memphis Grizzlies -7.5 -110 (1.91) Bookmaker

            Golden State are a team that base their game on run and gun style. They got great scorers, but in the frontcourt they have no advantage right now because of their injuries. They still have great scorer behind the arc, however isn't enough when they face teams that are concentrated. They are now dealing with that injuries, but it's probable that after Christmas they will have the return of their 2 best players in the frountcourt. So, they probably will be real and only target a game to return to victories after Christmas. This team is 1-9 in their last 10 games and have several trade rumors, as Maggete isn't appreciated by the fans anymore, even knowing he his a great scorer. The truth is that this team can make bug surprises, however they have to face teams that think the game is won before the start.

            Today they will face Grizzlies, a team that is improving a lot game after game, with a solid team from front to back. This will be their last game before Christmas, and are coming from great wins at home, which will probably be a great boost to their confidence. Memphis are much better now, with high control of the games, as they are can combine a good offense with a great rebounders, either in defense and offense. It will probably enough to manage today game against a no-confident team.

                    Cleveland Cavaliers @ Los Angeles Lakers

                    This will be a matchup between two contenders to the championship. But isn't all. It's probably a game between two runners to MVP title.

                    Cleveland after LeBron turned a star, have two kinds of teams. The first kind is a team that it's only LeBron plus 4 players. Since they signed Mo Willians, and with improvement of their centers. But the team get a little bit comfortable again, and still to much dependent of LeBron. For this year they signed Shaq, however it's only a big name, and isn't anymore a big player in quality terms. So, even we thought that this team would improve from last year with this sign, the truth is that the team isn't corresponding so well this season. They already have 8 losses, isn't much, but for the expectations is a little bit to much. They are struggling against teams that are showing a good game, as they are a little bit less effective in their defensive, as their centers aren't producing the expected.

                    Lakers are 16-1 after the return of Gasol. They are playing well, and are strong in the paint. This team is the actual champion, and are already launched to make a great season. This team, even when they slowdown, are able to win. Even with a broken finger, Kobe led this team to some straight wins, showing to everyone what is a champion. Their offense is going great particularly at home, and they usually allow less than 95 points. If you thing that they have an average of 105 points scored, we can conclude that their average is a win by 10 points. Show how ease it his, and this team is invincible at home since the return of Gasol, the key to a great improvement for this team.

                    Today we can expect two different teams. Cavaliers will try their best, with LeBron making a great game for sure. Shaq will return for the house where he was a big star and a champion, but he can't play many minutes. In the paint, there is a huge advantage to Lakers, and will be probably the key for this game. LeBron will be the best scorer for Cleveland and they will have to wait for some inspiration for another player, for example, Mo Willians. Lakers doesn't have to wait for anything. Their players are all good scorers, and this team enjoy and loves to play this big matches against another contenders. It will not take their foot off the accelerator even when they get in control of the game.


                    Pick: Los Angeles Lakers -5.5 -110 (1.91) The Greek



                    Los Angeles Clippers @ Phoenix Suns

                    Christmas should be a happy day for players. We can expect some Christmas spirit today, and the effect will be probably a soft defense, as both team will not be to hard doing something that they aren't good to.

                    Clippers are a team with good scorers. They have great scorers behind the arc as Davis and Gordon, and great scorers in the paint, such as Kaman and Camby. This team average normally 100 points allowed and the some on scored, but the tendency is making this numbers groin, as they are with 101 points scored and allowed in last 5.

                    Suns is a well known team. In 12 home games, only once they missed the target of 100 points scored. At home, this team was invincible until 2 games ago. In last 2 games, the team suffered the first and second home loss. Something strange, as they were showing a great game led by the veteran Nash.

                    This matchup have all to be a comfortable over. Some joy due to the holiday, two teams adept of offensive game, one bad defender as host and another as visitor, and a team that will be try to win this game with all they got. Suns can't miss another win at home and today will fight hard. And when they fight hard, it means that they will give all they got on offense. However, Clippers aren't making easy the game in this roadtrip, and normally scores 100 points even against good defensive teams. Against a no-defense team, it will be probably be higher.

                        NBA 2009.12.26, first 2 picks:


                        Philadelphia 76ers @ Utah Jazz

                        This is a matchup where a western conference team will host a eastern conference team. More than a month ago, Jazz went to Philadelphia won 112-90, something changed meanwhile, however I think that those changes just increase our spot.

                        Sixiers are now playing a faster game, has they had taking out one center to add one more guard in their style of game. This was a turning point, however, they still missing results. There is no doubt that they stated to discuss more the game, and after 12 straight losses, they already won 2 and lost another in OT in their last 5 games. They team weren't a good defender before these changes, however, they get worst after it. The only improvement was in their offense, and the add of Iverson only improves this effects, better offense to worst defense. This sign was to reimburse the lost for injuries of Louis Williams, but he returned last match. But today we will probably see Sixiers without Iverson, and so, this will be a match with the old players playing a new kind of game due to Iverson sign.

                        Jazz are a home team. In Salt Lake city they got always supporters, great fans in every game, and this is an arena where referees usually turns supporters of the home team as well. The team has maintained their key players from last year, but this season they are struggling a little bit despite the positive record. The truth is that they can be a contenders if they play a good game as every one knows they can. They are showing it some times, but they have to improve it if they want to be in the PO, and there is no doubt that playoffs are their minimum achievement to this season. This Christmas break can be a turning point to this team, and I expect it.

                        For today, there is a huge advantage for Utah Jazz, as they are a good defenders at home. With the kind of game that Sixiers will take to Utah, there is no doubt that Jazz knows handle it. It's the kind of game that makes Jazz shine, as they can play a fast game as well, and show some strength on their defense as well. With a high pace, there is no team who can leave Utah happy, and Jazz usually outscored opponents when they win.


                        Pick: Utah Jazz -7 -110 (1.91) Bookmaker



                        San Antonio Spurs @ Milwaukee Bucks

                        Both teams are passing a bad moment. But these 3 days off, will be an opportunities to think about their moment, and improving where bot teams can be strong, as defense.

                        Milwaukee is 4-12 in last 16, after a good start. They have Redd ok after an injure, Bogut that is a good defender, and a great improvement of Ilyasova. They also had accuracy in the draft, choosing the best rookie so far in this season, Jennings. When this team win, usually they score around 90 and only allow around 80 points. In their last 18 games, they only for 5 times they scored more than 100 points. And they aren't scoring less points lately, they just are more soft on their defense, and it's what they have to improve in order to achieve more wins. And this days off were certainly to talk about it and make the players understand how important is defense.

                        Spurs are a disappointing so far. This team, that plays together at so many time, seems now a old team. The strength of this team is their defense, as they are players that play with a low pace and got the size in the paint. In the road they are with a negative record, because their defense doesn't work in the same way. But this pause can give good effects on this team, They rested for few days, and so they would be prepared to manage the games.

                        Both teams have to improve their defense. After this Christmas break, I think that both teams will try to control the game by their defense. Probably this game will be played in a low pace, many mistakes will be probably committed due to a strong defense from both sides.


                        Pick: Under 191 -110 (1.91) The Greek


                        Dunno if I'll have time to properly focus on handicapping the other NBA games for today or for the next days, the family is celebrating the arrival of a new member and I my results might suffer from all this happiness. :P

                            Detroit Pistons @ Toronto Raptors: Over 193 -110 (1.91) Bookmaker

                            Houston Rockets @ Cleveland Cavaliers: Under 192 -110 (1.91) Bookmaker

                            San Antonio Spurs @ New York Knicks: Under 198 -110 (1.91) Bookmaker


                            Houston Rockets @ Cleveland Cavaliers

                            This will be a matchup where a Eastern team host a Western team. Houston used to be a defensive team with Ming, however they have been adapted this season to play a faster game in order to keep competitive despite Ming season absence.

                            So, this ultra defensive team has started to use fast players, which could make them score a lot more.

                            However this doesn't happen in every game. When they faces a team that knows how to defend, they usually play a lower game to try to keep the scoreboard balanced.

                            Cleveland is incredible how they play in Sundays. They just enter the game with a high defensive, allowing few points, and with a low pace in the game, that keep them also away for a high score.

                            This year they aren't pushing themselves to big performances when they aren't facing a direct adversary, keeping only the control of the game against the other teams and with a low win margin. Today I expect a game played in a low pace and with a low score.


                            Pick: Under 192 -110 (1.91) Bookmaker


                            San Antonio Spurs @ New York Knicks

                            Knicks are going to their 7 straight game scoring less than 100 points. Their percentages are decreasing and their confidence is not the best right know, as they are nervous because of the memories of the start of the season, which could return soon.

                            This is not the best game right now to Knicks, as Spurs are a hard team to them, as they are 2-8 against Spurs in last 10 games. Spurs are being a disappoint so far, as they were expected to be one of the best teams on the league.

                            However, this had a break in Christmas that could benefit this team.

                            They are a team that doesn't enjoy to keep a high pace, as they are the oldest team in the league. Since Christmas, they went to Milwaukee won 112-97. But it's hard to keep this high score, as their bench shoot 71.5% on their attempts.

                            In a B2B game, Spurs have to be smart against a fast team such Knicks, and they could easily control this game if they keep a good defensive and a low pace.
