GoodFella's NBA Notes Thursday, February 19th, 2009

San Antonio @ Detroit

-Detroit beat San Antonio 89-77 AT San Antonio as 5.5 pt underdogs back on Dec. 2nd, & Detroit is 3-1 SU & 4-0 ATS the L/4 games between these teams-

-Detroit has lost 4 straight games overall, and are 1-7 SU & 0-8 ATS their L/8 home games, & this team just really seems to lack chemistry and togetherness that they have always had together-

-Detroit is just 1-3 ATS as home underdogs this season & they are also just 2-7 SU & 0-9 ATS at home vs Western Conference teams this season-

-San Antonio is coming off a 5 pt loss AT New York on Tuesday night & they will be without star SG Manu Ginobili again tonight, as he is out with a ankle injury-

-San Antonio is 6-2-1 ATS their L/9 games overall & they are 10-5 SU & ATS their L/15 road games-

Boston @ Utah

-Boston beat Utah AT Boston 100-91 as 10 pt favs back on Dec. 15th & Boston also won AT Utah last season (104-98) as 5.5 pt road favs, so Utah will definitely be looking for some revenge tonight-

-Boston is playing their 1st game since the all-star break, & they are coming in off back to back road wins over New Orleans & Dallas, & Boston is a impressive 9-0 SU & 8-1 ATS their L/9 road games-

-Utah has won 6 of their L/8 games SU & ATS & they are coming off a 18 pt blowout home win over Memphis on Tuesday night. Mehmet Okur did not play vs Memphis (strained quad) & he is questionable for tonight as well-

-Utah is 4-1 ATS the L/5 games vs Boston & Utah is also 5-1 SU & ATS their L/6 home games & they have really played very well since all-star point guard Deron Williams came back from injury-

  • "Boston is playing their 1st game since the all-star break" - could be rusty.

  • Houston gets Lowry & Brian Cook & Grizz get 1st round pick from Magic

  • Orlando lands Rafer Alston......nice pickup

  • Shaq trade now reportedly dead.....that was fun while it

  • Wow- Shaq rumored to be on his way to Cleveland for Ben Wallace, Sasha, & Wally's expiring contract. Interseting indeed!
