GoodFellas NBA Daily Notes Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

Milwaukee @ Indiana

-Milwaukee blewout Indiana 121-103 AT Milwaukee as 4 pt favs back on dec. 13th-

-Milwaukee lost G Michael Redd for the year 2 games ago & they lost at home to Minnesota 90-83 in their 1st game without him-

-Milwaukee is 2-4-1 ATS in their L/7 road games-

-Indiana is coming off a blowout loss AT Orlando yesterday (135-111), as Orlando was coming off back to back losses vs Boston AT Orlando and a loss to Miami AT Miami, so it was a very tough spot for Indiana IMO-

-Indiana is playing its 3rd game in 4 nights & are also playing in a back to back tonight-

-Indiana is 5-0 SU in their L/5 home games & they are also 5-1 ATS the L/6 times they have played Milwaukee AT Indiana-

Atlanta @ New York

-Atlanta beat NY 98-95 AT Atlanta as 10 pt favs back on Dec. 5th-

-Atlanta is playing their 3rd game in 4 nights tonight & have lost 2 straight game, the last on coming on Monday night in Miami, in a game the Heat blew them out 95-79-

-NY is coming off a home victory over Houston on Monday night (104-98), & NY has won 4 of their L/5 SU & they are 5-0 ATS in those 5 games-

-Atlanta is 5-0 SU the L/5 games AT NY, but they are just 2-5 ATS vs NY in the L/7 games overall-

Toronto @ New Jersey

-These two teams have played each other 3 times already this season, & the home team has lost all 3 games so far. NJ won AT Toronto (129-127) as 8.5 pt dogs on 11/21, Toronto won AT NJ (101-79) as 3 pt dogs on 12/12, & NJ won the last meeting AT Toronto (94-87) as 4.5 pt dogs on 12/15-

-New Jersey is really struggling right now, as they have lost 6 of their L/7 SU & they are just 2-6 ATS over their L/8 games-

-New Jersey is just 4-10 ATS in their L/14 games at home, but they are 4-2 SU L/6 at home-

-Toronto is on a 2 game win streak, as they have blown out both Sacramento AT Toronto on Sunday in their last game, and Chicago AT Chicago last Friday night-

-Toronto is just 1-5 SU in their L/6 road games, but they are 4-2 ATS in those 6 games-

Detroit @ Minnesota

-Minnesota put a beat down on Detroit in the teams only meeting this season, with a 106-80 win AT Detroit as 10 pt dogs, back on Nov. 23rd-

-Minnesota is playing its 3rd game in 4 days tonight, while Detroit has been off the last 2 days-

-Minnesota has the NBA's best record since the New Year (2009)  at 10-2 & they are on a 3 game winning streak coming into tonights game, as they beat the Michael Redd-less Bucks AT Milwaukee (90-83) on Monday-

-Minnesota is 6-1 SU in their L/7 home games, but they are 0-5 ATS the L/5 games vs Detroit AT Minnesota-

-Detroit is coming off back to back home losses to Dallas on Friday, & to Houston on Sunday, & they are not playing good ball right now & are just 2-7 ATS over their L/9 games-

-Detroit has conference rival Boston up next for them on Friday night AT Detroit, & even with the need for a win tonight, I think they may be looking ahead to that matchup some tonight-

Golden St. @ Dallas

-Dallas is playing its 1st home game tonight, after coming off a 4 game east coast road trip, that saw them go 2-2 on the trip, as the trip ended with a blowout loss AT Boston (124-100) on National TV Sunday-

-Golden St. is coming off a 107-92 home victory the Clippers on Sunday & that finished off Golden St. 7 game homestand, in which they went 4-3 SU on the homestand-

-Golden St. got back C Andris Biedrins in their last game, but they were without G Jamal Crawford(hamstring) in that game, & he remains day to day & questionable for tonights game-

-Dallas has the NBA's worst ATS record at home at just 5-15 ATS & they are just 3-12 ATS the L/15 games between these two teams-

-Golden St. is 4-1 ATS in their L/5 games, but they are just 1-4 ATS in their L/5 road games-

Charlotte @ Portland

-Charlotte beat Portland AT Charlotte in these teams only meeting this season (102-97) as 2.5 pt home dogs on Jan. 17th. However, that was a terrible spot for Portland, as they were not only playing their 4th & final game of a brutal 6 day 4 game east coast trip in that game, it was also their 3rd game in 4 nights-

-Charlotte is playing its 3rd game in 4 nights, and are also in a back to back spot tonight, & coming off a double overtime victory over the Lakers last night. They are also playing their 3rd game of their 5 game west coast road trip tonight-

-Charlotte G Gerald Wallace took a nasty shot in the ribs last night & had to leave the game, and is questionable for tonights game-

-Potland PG Steve Blake reinjured his shoulder in Portlands last game ( & he will not play tonight) vs the Clippers on Monday night, in a game that Portland had serious revenge in & they blew out the Clippers by 25 pts-

-I really think you get that same kind of mindset from Portland tonight, as they will want to get even with Charlotte tonight, and they know Charlotte is not in a good spot tonight-

-Both teams have impressive ATS numbers going for them tonight, as Portland is 13-8 ATS at home this season, & Charlotte is 13-6 ATS on the road this season-

  • I read that Baron Davis will play tonight, but Z-bo & Camby are both out tonight.

  • Thanks Joe & Denver, I appreciate it fellas & I am glad its helping you guys out. I just heard on local radio, that Gerald Wallace is OUT for tonights game. I figured he would be anyways, as he took a meant shot in the ribs/lungs last night. I just wanted to pass that along.

  • thanks for the great info GF

  • Great info as always, GF
