In 11 games in the NBA, only matched by Friday, there are so many games to discuss. None better than starting the night with the Nugs @ Bean town and ending it with Heat rising in Mormon country.
NBA Betting Picks for Wednesday, December 8th:
Denver Nuggets @ Boston Celtics – The Boston Celtics and Denver Nuggets are very similar in the fact that they destroy teams at home, posting only two losses between them in 20+ games. Boston is finding out when you build a veteran laced team, injuries are a guarantee. Youngsters forgotten will always play a role in the season and in big matchups like this. After a great home stand, Denver lost its first game on the road, late last night in Charlotte by two. Boston is consistently beating teams and taking them out, early and often. So this spread is not an issue, but may be without Rondo and I thought that would slide this line closer to five. Look for a frustration level with Billups and Nate and good lineups to face for the C’s.

Detroit Pistons @ New Orleans Hornets – Seeing Detroit last night, I fear they are still trying to win and not rebuild. Why else would you be starting Big Ben Wallace and asking him to score? Both of these organizations are struggling with 1-4 records in their last five. The Hornets are scuffling due to the hardening of their schedule. But losing to the Knicks at home was not a good sign if this team is to compete for the long-term. Detroit can beat Cleveland, but no others, I want to see Greg Monroe starting! And let’s turn it over to the kids at this point. Why else would you sign Gordon and CV, to sit them on the bench? Turmoil with ownership cannot trickle down to these professionals being NBA players. They must give N.O. its best season yet and if they are destined to leave, make it on a high note, with something to remember. I am taking Kansas City or the future Supersonics.
Memphis Grizzlies @ Phoenix Suns – Witnessing the last win against the Grizzlies, gives me a big indicator into what’s to happen tonight at US Airways Center. If you believe it will take overtime once again, the over is a for sure bet. But I am keeping this pick straight up. Shots tonight will seem that much easier, after playing the active defensive hands possessed by the Portland Trailblazers last night versus Phoenix. The length is there for MEM, but the know-how is not on par as POR’s home defensive intensity. Things are clearly unraveling after two great wins to end November. Phoenix is coming together and Steve Nash is ending the debate over who is the best PG in the world. Losing only tight late game affairs on the road against top Western Conference competition is a big indicator of this team’s goals and outlook. Matching up decently at all five spots is good news for us at only four tonight. I know the key to stopping Memphis is not letting Zach Randolph get any easy buckets. Please keep Hedo away from him defensively, please.
If the Wizards can hang around to cover on the Lakers, the Clippers have enough to do the same in a home game?
