-Miami is playing their 3rd game in 4 days tonight since the all-star break, but they have not had to leave the state of Florida during the 4 game stretch. The Heat are coming off a 23 pt blowout loss AT Orlando on Sunday, & Miami is a impressive 5-1 ATS L/6 games following a double digit loss & Miami is also 8-2 ATS L/10 games with 1 day of rest-

Orlando @ Chicago

-This is the 3rd meeting between these two clubs this season, with Orlando winning both games, including a 19 pt blowout win AT Chicago on Dec. 31st, so Chicago has double revenge going for them tonight-

-San Antonio is finally back home from a grueling 8 game east coast road trip tonight, as they finished off the long roadie by smashing the lowly Wizards 98-67 on Saturday night. Normally the spot that the Spurs are in tonight is a very difficult one for teams in general, 1st game back home off a long road trip on the other side of the country, but amazingly San Antonio is 8-1 ATS their L/9 games following a road trip of 7 days or longer-

    Josh Smith may be suspended for flagrant foul  

    Josh Smith - F - ATL - Feb. 24  

    Josh Smith could be suspended for Wednesday's due to his Flagrant-2 foul on Matt Harpring Monday night.

    The team is awaiting official word from the NBA, and the matter should be decided sometime Tuesday. Stay tuned.

    Mike Bibby - G - Hawks

    The Hawks could be without starting point guard Mike Bibby (flu) on Wednesday.

    Bibby was scoreless in 15 minutes against the Jazz on Monday, so the illness is clearly affecting him. Acie Law would likely get the start if Bibby is unable to go, but Flip Murray would be the bigger beneficiary. Feb. 24

  • "but amazingly San Antonio is 8-1 ATS their L/9 games following a road trip of 7 days or longer"

    The question GF is that usually the rodeo trip in the previous seasons ended before the all star break, this season is way different as they played 3 games after the break

    We are on the same side in here  Big Smile

  • You're welcome buddy & best of luck to us tonight!

  • Thanks for doing this on a daily, GF. I find it very useful. Good luck tonight on the plays.

  • Thanks for the props Denver & B Money, I appreciate it fellas. I hope we all win big tonight!

  • Greg Oden traveled with the team for the road trip, but he is officially OUT for tonight's game.

  • Good info today as usual GF, I like the Spurs alot tonight!!

  • Nice work yet again GF. Keep up the good work as always! And if everyone was smart they would get your picks 2night cuz your one of the best here at pregame. GL 2night!!

    Update: Nene could be out up to two weeks  

    Nene Hilario - F/C - DEN - Feb. 24

    Nuggets coach George Karl expects Nene (bone bruise in right knee) to miss at least the rest of this week, and a source close to the situation said it's likely he'll miss two weeks.

    While not devastating, this report is definitely a setback for Nene's owners. Keep him benched and hopefully two weeks will remain the 'worst-case scenario'. In the meantime, both Johan Petro and Chris Andersen should have increased playing time.
