That's why Musberger, Al Michaels should not be allowed to bet on sports

LaMarcus Aldridge just got interviewed by TNT and he said "We are trying to push the ball more for this game." 

Portland has not been scoring that much in their last couple of games, so you would think tonight's game is no dfferent..

I'm sure a lot of people took the under because of Portland's lack of scoring in their last couple of games.

As a recreational gambler, we do not have access to the pregame interviews by players and coaches, so we have no idea what the game plan is. However, a media person like Musberger and Michaels have press credentials, so they are allowed to interview players and coaches about the game plan and so on. or They have press friends that they can ask for inside information on the game plan. This would give Musberger and Michaels a huge advantage on how to bet on the game, especially on how to bet on the totals.

Portland plays a half cour style offense. They rarely "push" the ball, but tonight they pushed the ball and as a result, they scored 60 in the first half.  Dallas is a good defensive team, but the fact that Portland is playing an uptempo gives them more opportunities to score.

Also, Musberger has access to the players before game time and he probably knows some injuries that the public does not know about and it could affect the way the game is wagered.

Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if Barkley bet on every TNT games, because he knows or he has a lot of valueable info on how to bet o... [More]

Info and Notes for Gm1 - Indiana vs Washington

Washington won't be playing at their usual home court at the Verizon Center.  They will be playing at the Comcast Center instead.  The home court might not be much of an advantage for Washington because they have never played at the Comcast Center before.

INJURY REPORT FOR INDIANA

Tammy Sutton Brown - Probable
Katie Douglas - Probable

"The toe is feeling good after getting a few days rest. We are going to go into the playoffs healthy. Katie and I both got to rest when we played in Connecticut. We want to go into Washington at full strength."  Tammy Sutton Brown

It looks like Indiana's 2 best players are healthy and well rested.

INJURY REPORT FOR WASHINGTON

Alana Beard - Probable

There should be an asterisk next to the US Open Champion

Let's be honest.  The entire field did not played on an even level playing field. Some players had a hugh advantage and some players like Tiger got screwed.  It's really nobody's fault. Blame it on mother nature I guess.   I'm just a little pissed that this unfortunate incident will prevent the best player in the world from competing for the championship.  Yes, there are 2 more rounds, but realisticall,y Tiger is too far back to contend.

Thank you Chris Wallace

Hey Chris Wallace, thanks for trading Paul Gasol to the Lakers for Kwame Brown.  If you don't know who this dumb fuck is, he is the GM of the Memphis Grizzlies that traded Gasol to the Lakers for Kwame Brown. 

Here is a little quote from Gregg Popovich about the trade.

What they did in Memphis is beyond comprehension,” said Popovich. “There should be a trade committee that can scratch all trades that make no sense. I just wish I had been on a trade committee that oversees NBA trades. I’d like to elect myself to that committee. I would have voted no to the L.A. trade.”
