Los Angeles – Cleveland
The good pick from yesterday makes me believe that we re back on the track , at least to finnish the year on a good run .
We ll continue the free NBA tips with tonight games , the main pick is from Cleveland Cavaliers – Los Angeles Lakers .
Lakers beat the Bulls in their last match – 103-91 -and have had two days rest before this match,the Cavs after losing now travel back to Cleveland for this match. The lakers this season are 7-4 against the spread on the road while the Cavs are 3-8 against the spread at home, b2b matches for the Cavs and it gets even worse with the Cavs only winning 2 of their 7 back to back matches this season. The Cavs shooting percentages are dropping with each game while the Lakers have remained consitent throughout the season and are still sitting at 50% from the field.
The Lakers are living off 3 point shots and are shooting and sinking on average 8 per game while the Cavs are averaging 4 per game and dropping,and last but not least the Lakers and Cavs are both conceeding the same amount of points from their opponents 101 points but the cavs average less than 9 points to the Lakers average game total.
These two teams couldn’t be going in more opposite directions. The Cavs just suffered the gravest embarassment an NBA team can face these days in getting blown out by the Bricks.
“I’m embarrassed,” Brown said. “Our defense this year has been very, very bad. Defensively, this is one of the worst performances that I’ve been a part of and that starts with me. I don’t think it can get any worse than this.”
“There’s not much to say,” said Ilgauskas , who had seven points and four rebounds. “It was a terrible performance from top to bottom. From the beginning till the end, we didn’t show up to play.”
Also , looks like Lebron had a small arguement with coach Brown during the Knicks game , a lot of tension and nerves coming from the Cavs . I think Lebron can t handle the Lakers on his own and Cle will fall apart tonight again.
So , the first NBA tip for the day is :
