Golden State went into last weekend’s NBA All-Star break with a five-game losing streak both straight-up and against the spread including a 116-107 loss to Houston last Tuesday as a four-point favorite at home. It is now 30-22 SU and 27-24-1 ATS on the year and clinging to sixth-place in the Western Conference; just one game ahead of Utah. The total has gone OVER in five of its last six games.
Things are starting to heat-up in the Big East as the regular season hits the stretch run and Georgetown is right in the thick of things with a six-game winning streak. It is coming off a huge 63-55 victory over No.18 Marquette this past Monday as a five-point home favorite. The Hoyas are 18-4 straight-up overall and after covering in every game during this run they are now 11-7 against the spread.
If there was ever any question about LeBron James’ MVP credentials they should have all been answered given his performance over the past six games. In Miami’s 117-104 victory over Portland on Tuesday night as an 11-point home favorite, he scored more than 30 points while shooting at least 60 percent from the field for the sixth-straight game to set a new NBA record.
Chicago finds itself at a crossroads in this regular season showdown. On one hand, it is just a half a game behind Indiana for the lead in the Central Division, but on the other, it has gone 5-5 straight-up in its last 10 games. The Bulls might be able to keep things together until Derrick Rose’s expected return some time after this weekend’s All-Star break,
Oklahoma City extended its current winning streak to four games with Sunday’s 97-69 thrashing of Phoenix as an 8.5-point road favorite. The total stayed UNDER the 205-point line after going OVER in four of its previous five games. The Thunder are now 39-12 straight-up overall and a very profitable 31-18-2 against the spread. They have gone 16-9 SU on the road this season and 13-10-2 ATS.
The Spurs are still without the services of both Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili, but they are 2-1 both straight-up and against the spread in the first three games of an extended road trip including a 111-86 rout of Brooklyn on Sunday as 2.5-point favorites. San Antonio is now 40-12 SU (29-21-2 ATS) overall and 18-10 SU (16-12 ATS) on the road. The total has gone OVER in five of its last eight games.
The Clippers have been treading water during their current eight-game road trip with a 2-3 record in the first five games. This is actually an impressive performance considering that Chris Paul continues to recover from a bruised knee cap and Blake Griffin has missed the last two games due to a strained hamstring. Both players remain questionable for Friday night’s game.
The Lakers continued their current seven-game road trip with a stunning 92-83 victory over Brooklyn this past Tuesday night as four-point underdogs. They are now 3-1 in the first four games of this trip but still 8-16 on the road overall. The win pushed Los Angeles’ overall record to 23-26 straight-up and 20-28-1 against the spread. It has gone just 8-15-1 ATS on the road this season and the total has now stayed UNDER in five of its last seven games overall.
San Antonio will be going for its 11th-straight victory on Wednesday night at the Target Center, but it will not be easy with two of its top players out of the lineup. Manu Ginobili already missed his last start with a tight hamstring and Tim Duncan is nursing both a knee and ankle strain. That means it will be up to Tony Parker and a strong supporting cast to try and keep the streak alive.
It is getting to be crunch time for the Lakers if they are going to have any shot at making the playoffs this season. At 22-26 straight-up, they are still 3.5 games out of the eighth and final spot in the Western Conference. LA comes into this matchup fresh off of back-to-back road victories over Minnesota and Detroit; however it is still just 5-5 SU in its last 10 games and 7-16 SU on the road this season. It is 19-28-1 against the spread and the total has stayed UNDER in four of its last six games.
