BOSTON CELTICS (23-21) at ATLANTA HAWKS (26-19)
2012-03-19

Tip-off: Monday, 7:35 p.m. ET

Line: Apuestas Deportivas Golf Betting Online Bingo Sportsbook NFL Betting Picks Atlanta -1½, Total: 183



The Celtics begin the East Coast portion of their monster road trip when they visit a surging Atlanta team on Monday night.



Boston has dropped its past two games on the eight-game trip, while the Hawks have won two in a row and are 8-2 ATS in their past 10 contests. Although Atlanta has been hit hard with injuries, the Celtics just can't be trusted on the road, going 2-11 (SU and ATS) in their past 13 contests outside of Boston. The C's are also 2-5 (SU and ATS) in the past seven meetings overall with the Hawks and 2-7 ATS in the past nine trips to Philips Arena. Don't be too concerned about Atlanta being tired from Sunday’s win in Cleveland, because it is an amazing 9-2-1 ATS with zero days rest this season, including 5-0 SU and ATS when going from away to home on consecutive nights.ATLANTA is the pick on Monday night.



Boston is finally near full-strength with the exception of C Jermaine O’Neal who remains out with a wrist injury. But the Celtics have been horrible in their past two games, losing by 25 in Sacramento and then falling by seven in Denver. They were dominated on the glass in both games, getting outrebounded by a combined 91 to 55. But fortunately for Boston, the Hawks rank 22nd in the league in rebounding margin (-1.3 RPG) and are missing some of their big men due to injuries. SF Paul Pierce is averaging 18.8 PPG in the first five games of the trip, but he has a minus-20 rating and is shooting just 36.7% from the floor (7-for-26 threes). PF Kevin Garnett has scored 18.2 PPG with 8.8 RPG in these past five contests, and he’s been much more efficient in scoring at 62.5% FG and 11-of-12 FT. PG Rajon Rondo has dished out 12.4 APG on the road trip, but he’s also committed 4.4 TOPG.



Atlanta is extremely banged up with four players missing Sunday’s 103-87 win in Cleveland -- SF Marvin Williams (hip flexor), SG Willie Green (hamstring), PG Jannero Pargo (stomach virus) and PF Vladimir Radmanovic (back). But the team’s core players were all healthy, with SG Joe Johnson pouring in a game-high 28 points (11-of-16 FG) and the point guard tandem of Jeff Teague and Kirk Hinrich combining for 32 points on 14-of-24 FG (4-of-9 threes) in the win over the Cavaliers. This three-guard set was very effective, and probably something the Hawks will employ on Monday night with Williams not expected to suit up. PF Josh Smith had a terrible shooting night (3-of-15 FG), but pitched in with a team-high nine assists and grabbed eight boards in his 29 minutes of action. Playing against the Celtics might not get him out of his shooting slump though, considering he was just 3-for-21 from the floor in three meetings with Boston last season.




LeBron Free Agency: Other than Cleveland?
2010-07-07

In the second round of this year’s NBA Playoffs, many teams suddenly became fans of the Boston Celtics. They realized that a Celtics victory over the Cavaliers would open the doors to the greatest prize in the history of NBA free agency: LeBron James. The understanding was that if a revamped Cleveland team couldn’t even advance to the Conference Finals, James might be more receptive to leaving his hometown team. Based on Boston’s victory and James’ apparent openness to these overtures, there is a chance James may give Cleveland sports fans their latest doomsday.

As of now, the current non-Cleveland leader of the pack in the James sweepstakes appears to be the Chicago Bulls. Out of all the teams with the cap space to add James, Chicago has the most championship-ready pieces. In contrast to Cleveland, their talent is young and primed to enter their most productive years. The Bulls’ best player is undoubtedly point guard Derrick Rose, who will be entering his third year and has quickly turned into one of the game’s greatest playmakers. They also have a do-it-all center in Joakim Noah, who adds pivotal components with his unselfishness and rebounding ability and is the perfect unassuming role player to complement James. The same is true for Taj Gibson, who made a big impact in his rookie season but doesn’t have the ego to demand shots in a James-led squad. Luol Deng is a very talented and versatile player as well but might be deemed expendable if James were to sign with the team.

In addition to their playing personnel, the Bulls have other assets. Their new coach, Tom Thibodeau, is a defensive mastermind who has a proven pedigree, helping to construct the elite Boston Celtics teams of the past three years. Also, the Bulls have enough cap space to add another maximum contract player in this free agent bonanza. James is not the only prized commodity out there and the further addition of a player like Chris Bosh would make Chicago even more enticing. All these factors make it clear that out of all James’ potential suitors, Chicago is the most ready to win a championship.

This is in contrast to the New Jersey Nets, who are trying to make a splash under their new multibillionaire Russian owner Mikhail Prokhorov. The Nets are coming off the worst record in the NBA and although Prokhorov is trying to change the losing culture, their team is still very young. Devin Harris is a good player but not nearly of Rose’s caliber. Brook Lopez shows signs of great potential but is still developing at the NBA level. Fielding a title-contending team would take significantly longer in New Jersey and hurts their chances of getting James, who wants to win right away.

The New York Knicks are a wildcard of sorts in this sweepstakes. Up until this year, any talk about James leaving Cleveland seemed to be focused on the Knicks. Are you ready to get into the NBA betting action? Head over to www.sportsbook.com the home of NBA betting action.


NBA: Are Atlanta Hawks already a bad bet?
2010-05-06

If you missed Game 1 of the second round NBA Eastern Conference playoff series between Orlando and Atlanta, you need only look at final score to realize what a disparity the game was. Orlando won by 43 points, 114-71. Making matters worse, the game was once tied at 27, meaning the Hawks are coing into Thursday’s Game 2 hoping to stop a surge of 87-44. Still, oddmakers at Sportsbook.com have kept the line similar to Tuesday’s contest, Magic by 9.

After a one game reprieve against a Milwaukee club that in all fairness isn’t in Atlanta’s world talent-wise, the Hawks reverted back to being the Hawks on the playoff road. Now 2-11 ATS (aver. loss 19.9 PPG) on postseason excursions, Atlanta showed exactly why they don’t belong with NBA elite.

After passing the ball around for a few first quarter assists and buckets, Woodson proved he really has no control of this team as Joe “iso” Johnson and Jamal “shot craver” Crawford were a combined 5 for 22 from the field, which is truly “amazing”.

The Hawks are 4-18 ATS away from home versus good teams outscoring opponents by three or more points a game after the mid-point of the season the last three years and might have to use Dictionary.com to look up the word – team.

Josh Smith was the only player that had a descent stat sheet with 7-14 shooting and three steals, but he took silly fouls and continues to play “street ball” on the NBA court. In his defense, just think what Atlanta would have shot (they were 34.6 percent) for game if Smith had not made half his shots?

Dwight Howard only played just over 28 minutes, but this time it wasn’t because of foul trouble, it was because it was a total demolition by Orlando. Howard had 21 points, 12 boards and five blocks and the only word that came to mind watching Al Horford and Zaza Pachulia trying to stop “Superman” was “helpless”. In fact, the Atlanta big men really wanted so little to do with Howard he couldn’t find enough of their players to commit his usual three or four reckless fouls.

Oddsmakers like those at Sportsbook.com can’t overreact to 43-point cave-ins and the Hawks are nine-point underdogs, with total of 189.5. Atlanta hopes to bounce back and is 8-1 ATS after a game scoring 85 or fewer points.

Coach Stan Van Gundy probably wouldn’t mind a competitive contest, since it appears the next round could be coming soon and his team is 29-12 ATS after playing a home game this season. Orlando is 30-14 UNDER after scoring 110 points or more and the unimposing Hawks are 20-7 UNDER revenging a road loss of 10 points or more.

Stayed tuned to ESPN at 8:00 Eastern to witness the next massacre or if Atlanta can really play with heart, for a change. The StatFox Power Line suggests more of the former, showing Orlando by 15.
