GoodFellas NBA Daily Notes Thursday, January 29th, 2009

Cleveland @ Orlando

-Cleveland won 2 of the 3 games these teams played last year, with the teams splitting the 2 games played AT Orlando-

-Cleveland has won 4 straight games, & are coming off a 117-110 win AT home vs Sacramento on Tuesday night, in a game they seemed to coast on the defensive end, as they were well aware of having to play AT Orlando on TNT in their next game-

-Prior to the Sacramento game, Cleveland reeled off 3 road wins in 4 nights in the west coast, over Portland, Golden St. & Utah, not a easy feat to do. Those 3 wins came after the blowout loss AT the Lakers on National TV-

-Orlando broke their 2 game losing streak (at home vs Boston & AT Miami) with a 24 pt blowout win at home over Indiana on Tuesday night-

-Orlando got back SG Mickael Pietrus in that Inidana game & he recorded season highs in points (27) & in rebounds (10)-

-Cleveland is #1 in the NBA in points allowed at just 90.6 ppg & they are 2nd in FG% allowed at just 42.5% against them, while Orlando is 3rd best at 43% against-

-The road team is 5-1 ATS the L/6 games between these two teams & the underdog is 7-1 ATS the L/8 games as well-

San Antonio @ Phoenix

-This is the 3rd meeting between these two teams this season, with the road team winning both games so far. PHX won AT San Antonio (103-98) as 1 pt dogs back on Oct. 29th & San Antonio won AT PHX (91-90) as 3 pt dogs on Dec. 25th-

-San Antonio is coming off a 106-100 win AT Utah on Tuesday night & the Spurs have won 10 of their L/13 SU, & those 3 losses were to (Orlando AT Spurs, AT Philly, & AT LA Lakers) & San Antonio is playing its 3rd and final game of their 3 game road trip that they are 1-1 on so far-

-Phoenix is finally back home tonight after a grueling 9 day 6 game East coast road trip, that they went 3-3 on & finished with 2 wins in a row over Atlanta & Washington in their last game on Monday & the 1st game back home after a long across the country trip, can be a difficult spot for teams-

-Phoenix is 1-5 ATS in their L/6 games & they are also just 2-3-1 ATS the L/6 games vs San Antonio-

-Phoenix is 14-11 SU & 8-17 vs the Western Conference, while San Antonio is 20-7 SU & 15-12 ATS vs the Western Conference this season-
