Armadillo: Friday's six-pack

-- Arizona 74, UCLA 70-- Wildcats blew 13-point lead, then outscored the Bruins 10-5 down the stretch to stay unbeaten.

-- Memphis 73, Louisville 67-- Someone on TV called this biggest win for Josh Pastner as coach of the Tigers.

-- Knicks 102, Heat 92-- Good for Mike Woodson, who sat JR Smith after Smith continuously acted like a child on the court.

-- DePaul 99, Butler 94 2ot-- Bulldogs are 0-3 in Big East, will need to get better athletes to win in Big East- this ain't the Horizon League. .

-- Michigan 71, Nebraska 70-- Bitter loss for Cornhuskers, who lost home opener after having couple shots in last 0:05.

-- Xavier 86, Marquette 79-- Referee Jim Burr did this game, after working Harvard-UConn Wednesday. He started working D-III college games back in 1972-- he has to be close to 70 years old, and refs on consecutive nights. Good for him.

Armadillo: Friday's List of 13: Random stuff with weekend here.....

13) Redskins hired Jay Gruden as their new head coach; he used to be a coach in the Arena League, but quit to go back to playing QB on a different team, probably only time that’s ever happened. Washington will apparently keep Jim Haslett as defensive coordinator.

12) Not sure how Bengals’ DC Mike Zimmer isn't a head coach? Does he not interview well? I heard him talk on HBO’s Hard Knocks, seems fairly normal; he is the only person who has been an NFL coordinator every year since 2000, without becoming a HC, demoted or unemployed.

11) In college ball, Alabama OC Doug Nussmeier moves on to Michigan, where he can tutor fellow lefty tosser Shane Morris. Nussmeier was a fine QB at Idaho and was a backup QB with the Saints. Would guess Gardner goes back to WR for Michigan, but that’s not based on anything they said, just makes sense for a lefty OC to be coaching a lefty QB.

10) Apparently Alabama let Nussmeier walk because Nick Saban wants to bring Lane Kiffin in as OC, all of which could make the third Saturday in October a lot more interesting, when the Tide traditionally plays Tennessee, Kiffin’s old team.

9) UAB’s head coach Garrick Magee quit to become Bobby Petrino’s OC at Louisville; now there’s a slap in the face, quitting as a I-A head coach to become an offensive coordinator. Maybe he was just beating the posse out of town, since the Blazers were 5-19 under Magee’s watch.

8) Petrino is making $24.5M for seven years at Louisville, with a $10M buyout; who else would hire this disloyal human? Western Kentucky is second team he’s quit on in $hort order for greener pa$ture$.

7) Want to feel warmer? Dodgers-Padres are ESPN’s first Sunday night game on March 30. Opening Day is the 31st; LA-Arizona are playing two games that count in Australia before that, so the Dodgers will play three games before 27 other teams play their season opener.

6) Knicks have to trade JR Smith, no matter how bad a loss they take on the deal; he basically gave Mike Woodson the finger when he untied a Philly player’s shoelace after being explicitly by Woodson told not to do that anymore. Lack of respect is a deal-breaker; even if they cut him, he has to go.

5) Fordham lost 87-81 at Duquesne Wednesday; they had an odd stat line, making 16-41 from arc, 10-30 inside arc, 13-22 on foul line. Not very often a team takes 40+ treys in a 40:00 game.

4) If you care about such things, Pete Rose will be signing autographs at Art of Music in Mandalay Place in Las Vegas on February 1, then every day from Feb. 9th til the end of the month. There is a very good pizza place called Slice of Pizza right down the hall from Art of Music, probably a better investment than paying $75 to get Pete’s autograph.

3) New Jersey Giant starters lost 91 games to injuries this past regular season, most of any team in the NFL.

2) 16 people didn’t vote for Greg Maddux for the Hall of Fame. It’s a free country and those people are entitled to do as they please, but that doesn’t mean it makes an ounce of sense.

1) If DirecTV carries the new WWE Network but still doesn’t have the Pac-12 Network, someone’s getting a phone call.

Celtics at Warriors: What bettors need to know
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Boston Celtics at Golden State Warriors (-10.5, 203.5)

The Golden State Warriors were four minutes away from the first 7-0 road trip in NBA history before finally running out of gas. The Warriors get to head home on Friday when they host the Boston Celtics, who are losers of six straight. Golden State matched the second-longest winning streak in franchise history with 10 straight before suffering a 102-98 loss at the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday.

“Our visions were set on finishing out the road trip with a win and what it meant,” Stephen Curry said. “It’s frustrating that we couldn’t get that done, but it’s just one loss. We just have to regroup, get some rest and get ready for Friday.” The Warriors have played the most road games in the NBA but will get a chance for some rest with nine of the next 12 on their homecourt. The Celtics are on the back end of a five-game trip and have dropped the first three.

TV: 10:30 p.m. ET, CSN New England (Boston), CSN Bay Area (Golden State)

ABOUT THE CELTICS (13-23): Boston was crushed by an average of 27 points at Oklahoma City and Denver to start the road trip but put up a better effort at the Los Angeles Clippers in a 111-105 setback on Wednesday. “I thought we were ready emotionally to compete,” coach Brad Stevens said. “So that’s a positive. We’ve got to build on it. We’ve got to do it again and again and again.” The Celtics were burned on high pick-and-rolls by the Thunder and the Nuggets but made a change to the starting lineup in Los Angeles by inserting Kris Humphries at the power forward spot and did a better job of containing the play against the Clippers.

ABOUT THE WARRIORS (24-14): Golden State can run a high pick-and-roll as well as any team in the league with Stephen Curry and David Lee but got in trouble against Brooklyn when tired legs led to turnovers and jumpers falling short. “I don’t think we executed offensively as well as we wanted to,” Lee said. “…so it was a frustrating way to end the streak, but overall a 6-1 road trip is very positive.” The streak allowed the Warriors to gain some ground in the Western Conference and they sit a game behind the Clippers in the Pacific Division after jumping over the Phoenix Suns. Golden State won its last three home games and is 11-4 in its own building.

TRENDS:

* Celtics are 2-8 ATS in the last 10 meetings.
* Warriors are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.
* Under is 15-6 in Celtics last 21 road games.
* Under is 6-2 in Warriors last 8 Friday games.

BUZZER BEATERS:

1. The Celtics have taken four of the last five in the series but lost their trip to Golden State last season 101-83.

2. Boston G Avery Bradley is averaging 19.3 points over the last four games.

3. Curry has committed at least seven turnovers in three of the last four games.

Fact or Fiction

January 9, 2014


The calendar year is now said and done with, and that means that we are right around the halfway point of the NBA season. Check out some of the hot topic items as we head into 2014 for NBA betting fans, as we decipher which are fact and which are fiction.

FACT

Cleveland Being a Playoff Contender with Luol Deng: We love the move. The Cavs were getting the worst production in the NBA out of the small forward position, and they went out there and got the best small forward on the market by essentially only giving up a few draft picks. Cleveland is only 12-23 coming into Thursday, but parlaying Deng with Dion Waiters and Kyrie Irving should put this team into the playoffs in the East.

Miami's Need For Andrew Bynum: The other piece to the Deng deal was Chicago essentially getting the salary dump known as Bynum's contract. He'll be a free agent by the end of the week, and when that happens, Miami is said to be amongst the interested teams. The Heat badly need a big man who can stand up to Roy Hibbert and some of the other big time big men in the game, and Bynum would certainly fit the mold as a defensive stopper.

Brooklyn's Four-Game Winning Streak: Beating Atlanta and Cleveland at home is nothing to write home about, but the Nets also have wins over Golden State and Oklahoma City in this run as well. Deron Williams will be back eventually, and if Joe Johnson can continue to assert himself as a big time scorer, something which has only happened recently, perhaps the Nets have this figured out. Remember, Brooklyn is only 3.5 games out of the lead in the Atlantic Division, where four-game winning streaks go a heck of a long way.

FICTION

The Warriors' 10-Game Winning Streak: The Warriors are good for sure, but they are really starting to get too much respect. They had no business laying six on the road against the aforementioned Nets on Wednesday night, especially not in the midst of a back-to-back against Eastern Conference teams. Golden State will get into the postseason, and it might make some noise when it gets there, but it just doesn't have the goods to keep up at this pace from a pointspread perspective.

Oklahoma City Is the Best in the West: Serge Ibaka is sick. Thabo Sefolosha has a hand injury. Russell Westbrook's knee might never be right again. So what's left for the Thunder? If you want to know what the future of this team holds with all of these problems, just look at the loss to the Jazz on Wednesday. Kevin Durant scored 48, Reggie Jackson scored 20, and the rest of the roster may as well have been eight boards with angry faces. The Thunder need to find a way to make a move to give Durant some help by the trade deadline if they really want to be the best in the West.

Portland's Run with One of the Best Records in the NBA: We're a tad late on this one, as the Blazers have been beaten in four of their last seven games. They started at 24-5 this year, and they were also 18-8 ATS once upon a time. Even look at the loss to the Magic on Wednesday. Portland needed a 39-19 fourth quarter just to put that game away. If you're losing at home through three quarters to Orlando, who is in the midst of one of its toughest stretches of the year, you're in a lot of trouble. The Blazers seem destined to fall in the second half of the year.
