Dan said come over to the New blog Denmarkok
Jeff... I promise on a stack of Bebe's Blogs I would read your e-mails.
Boston is in a bit of a physical game. I still think they pull out a W but they'll be feeling it in Phoenix tomorrow night. May be my excuse to fade.
Utah can't beat their own meat, much less anyone else right now. So why am I looking at -9 against a Minny team that gave OKC all they wanted and they've been relatively consistent with handling big chalk on the road? I've got to back the Jazz at some point in the next game or two...I mean it's hard to drop 6 straight games ATS in the NBA like they have...but...
Miami SU loss in NYC...think they tee off on Detroit with a double digit win at home on Friday??? Or is that a "look ahead" spot? LeBron and Wade v. KD and Westbrook kick off ABC's Sunday Hoops schedule and with the loss to the Knicks they will be even more amped to set things straight on national TV. Noon tip is simply too early for my Thunder...I mean the Baptists aren't even out of church yet, much less out of the cafeteria and at the arena formerly known as the Ford Center.

Good to see some of the NBA vets in here tonight. Hope you guys are all doing well.
Alright, finally finishing up Friday's capping. So much to do!
Luckily, a GREAT Friday card coming up!
Jeff: I'd be interested in looking through your stuff. What is the best way to do this? You want me to email you? and your address is?
Hahaha, took me a few months to truly "get" Jeff from Indy, but I think I know when I'm loved now :)
I think your right on the mark with your break down of the Thunder =/Heat game, Denmarkok. They struggle a little at home especially on Sunday. (Was there for that clunker against the Celts) and Spurs and Jazz gave it to them as well. Want to see the actual line but Miami would be the early lean, but that performance in NYC was horendous tonight.
Schedule analysis is at the very top of my handicapping priority and has been for many, many years
I am not a fundamental capper so focus on the emotional and motivational aspects of the NBA
Schedule plays by themselves are excellent but don't guarantee a long term profit
I have a very long list of reinforcements, confirmations, and validations that I use to supplement the schedule analysis
Again, I would be willing to share these through email but not over Dan's blog
Maybe you might actually read my emails compared to Dan who is too busy doing podcasts, mediating blogs, and getting married
Regards - Jeff from Indy
I certainly appreciate your interest in our 4 year system studies
As we have offerred before, we will not be able to share that info on the blog but would be receptive to sharing certain subets via email
Eg, the First Home Game results to enlighten Dan and others as to Dan's questionable or valid theories
Hell froze over in NY, Lebron got called for traveling.
Sat in Loud City last year. Fun place. Crowd was not out of hand. 13 y/o son had fun. Got tickets last year and this time through ticket exchange. Got a pretty good deal on them. It is one of the things on dads "bucket list".
Geeez.... maybe D Wade should always play ball in shades...
PS -- one word comes into play where the Thunder is concerned: Media. 'Nuff said. You guys have a great time! Wish my dad would have been around to see KD and the gang. He would have loved watching the development of the team in a place no one gave a thought to the support or success of an NBA franchise. Thank you Hurricane Katrina (iI's been long enough to throw that kind of comment out there? Maybe?).
Speaking of sitting in the "end zone"... had this conversation with an OSU fan the other day. They were lamenting on how attendance had dropped at Cowboys BB games at Gallagher-Iba (that place used to be absolutely brutal...not so much now). I asked which a casual fan would be more likely to invest in at this point...$35 to $60 for OSU or $10 to watch people like Kobe and LeBron take on the Thunder from Loud City. Since the arena formerly known as the Ford Center was originally designed for hockey, I'm not sure most people understand the way the layout of the top section affects the place acoustically. It's like a cacophonous cascade bombarding the court (totally unlike the Cox Center/ Myriad across the street). I have a great love for the citizens of Loud City (Shhhh...I've been known to sneak up there from time to time). It's an NBA experience in itself.
Hey Denmark, do you have season tickets to the Thunder? I'm taking my dad to his first ever NBA game Friday (my sons and my 2nd game) in OKC. Sitting in the "end zone" at the top of the lower bowl. Looking forward to the game, and Mr. Bebe writeup of it.
