CMM's NBA Monday

Winless Sunday. Let's get them back Monday.

 

Philadelphia 76ers -3.5
Bucks and 76ers are pretty much even in most aspects. Both teams relies heavy on their backcourt and their defense to win games. IMO, the 76ers would come up on top because they've played exceptional defense after the two setbacks from the Knicks. In 4 of their Wins, they've only allowed their opponent up to 80 points.  76ers are also more effecient scoring at home. 76ers wins this one and cover.

Boston Celtics +3.0
Or the ML if you want a wee bit more for your buck. The Celtics is starting to come alive now. Looking at their last 5 results won't do them any justice but they are looking really well compared to when they played their first few games. Players are understanding and now settling to their roles and it will only take a bit more time for them to start clicking. Bulls have played 5 of their first 6 games at home but isn't back to the elite defensive team they were. They are playing really good defense but are lacking in players who can create them buckets. Carlos Boozer has slowly been regressing lucky for the Bulls, Noah has polished his inside game. I see this game being a classic grind out with the team who has a bit more offensive punch off them winning.

Denver Nuggets -4.5
Backing the team that has been playing well. Like the Celtics, Denver is slowly shaping with their current personnel. Although chemistry is being developed, they are still that different team when playing on the road. In their 2 road wins (against the Warriors and Rockets), they've managed to build leads only to give it back. I suspect the same thing and hopefully still come up on top. Phoenix isn't getting consistent offensive production from their guys and so it should be the main concern for them here. They should be able to play well with the Nuggets' pace giving up in the last few minutes of the game.

 

BOL.

how you liking the heats? There playing against a overrated and overhyped houston rockets team.

I dont see the heats dropping two in a row. Talent+skill thats well rounded against a team that only relies on Harden to run there offense.

I see heats winning 10+.

Your thoughts?

It depends on the line. The last time the Heat played Jeremy Lin was during the height of Linsanity and man were they ready. Houston isn't as one-sided as the boxers would suggest. They move the ball well and are getting open looks. I'd probably take the Rockets if I can get 6 or more. Wade looks terrible back and won't be different tomorrow. Also, Harden has always been superb against the Heat.

Philly isn't due or is on a letdown spot. If there's anything, Philly is due for a good home game. And yes, the Bucks are 2-0 on the road but that is because they caught an anemic Boston team and had a scare in the second half of the game in Washington. They are 2-0 but they are not as solid as that record. And yes, Jennings won't hit that low of a FG%.

Nope. A letdown spot usually is when the team is on the last game of a 3 or more road trip. They usually relax and take the day off since they are looking forward to going home. They are just playing good defense the last 3 games/wins so I don't really see them letting up.

Harden isnt good against the heats. The NBA finals was a great example. He basically disappeared.

Like the celts play and am on it myself. Hinrich is questionable and if he's out, i'll be adding more. Nate Robinson is not a sound leader. In the last game against Minny after Hinrich left he was awful taking care of the ball and running the offence.

Good Luck I have the same picks except sixers are a bit off for me so I went under for the game.

Hope my parlay pays out =)

I some how jumped at this when it came out since I love Celtics and Nuggets line looked very good, just the sixers game kind of felt off for me.

What about over in PHX? They  (PHX)don`t play any defense and Nuggets and both teams can score a lot..I like Miami if spread won`t be 7 or more..

After seeing MIAMI Heat get clobbered by Memphis, I would like Heat even more.  But Heat is having a slow start.  Maybe the champagne has not dissolved yet and they are still buzzed from all of the celebration.....

I like your insight with Philly vs. MIL.  I like all of your picks.  BOL to you, dude.
