Pick 'n' roll: Tuesday's best NBA bets
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Detroit Pistons at Cleveland Cavaliers (-1.5, 191)

The young Cavaliers are tough to get a read on from one game to the next, but with Kyrie Irving leading the way, their future looks bright.

The Cavaliers shot just 36 percent on Sunday and still came away with a 93-92 victory when Irving hit a pair of free throws in the final second of play.

"We got a little lucky tonight, that's all I can say," coach Byron Scott told reporters. "I didn't think we played the way we are capable of playing. I thought we were kind of messing around in the first half. [The Kings] had a lot of confidence they could win the game. We just tried to turn it on. You just can't turn it on and off."

Irving finished with 21 points, but hit only eight of his 23 attempts from the floor while Cleveland dropped the cash for the third time in four games.

Meanwhile, Detroit has covered in each of its last four.

Pick: Pistons


Sacramento Kings at Miami Heat (-14, 203.5)

Strangely enough, it seems as though the Miami Heat are happy to share the NBA spotlight these days.

With the Jeremy Lin buzz and a hectic schedule providing plenty of plotlines, the Heat have quietly won six games in a row, both straight up and against the spread.

"We don't know if people get bored (with Miami winning) or not," LeBron James told reporters. "We just know there's a lot more going on. I guess there's other, better story lines right now going on in the league, so we can go out and just play the game and just try to do it at a high level. Let everybody else get the headlines right now and just play Miami Heat basketball."

Clearly, this team has come a long way since The Decision. The Heat have won each of the last six by at least 12 points, which has allowed them to sit James and the starters regularly in the fourth quarter.

That rest is going to help them out a lot in the second half of the season.

Pick: Heat

NHL Top 5: Trade deadline needs for contending teams
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A couple of interesting swaps have already been completed and there is bound to be many more coming with the NHL trade deadline looming just around the corner on Monday Feb. 27.

Here’s a look at five contending teams that could be active at the deadline.

Stanley Cup futures odds courtesy SportsInteraction.com.

New York Rangers (+500)

The Rangers hoped that the addition of Brad Richards would fix their problems on the power play. That hasn’t happened. New York is converting on just 14.1 percent of its opportunities with the man advantage this year. The Blueshirts are in the market for a playmaker and possibly some veteran grit. They have a cupboard stocked full of young talent, but Glen Sather wants to keep as many of the team's prospects as possible - or so he says now.

Possible trade targets:

Rick Nash, Columbus Blue Jackets
Ray Whitney, Phoenix Coyotes
Shane Doan, Phoenix Coyotes



New Jersey Devils (+2200)

New Jersey has won eight of its last 10 and is quietly moving its way up the Eastern Conference standings. The Devils still don’t get enough pucks to the net and could use some help down the middle. They also never turn down a chance to improve on the blue line and this could be their last kick at the can with Martin Brodeur in goal. They could be active.

Possible trade targets:

Marek Zidlicky, Minnesota Wild
Ales Hemsky, Edmonton Oilers
Luke Schenn, Toronto Maple Leafs
Mikhail Grabovski, Toronto Maple Leafs



Philadelphia Flyers (+1300)

Once again, the Philadelphia Flyers are looking for goaltending help at the deadline. Ilya Bryzgalov may still be the long-term solution, but the Flyers can’t depend on him at the moment and could look to grab a veteran netminder for the stretch run. They already added a stud in Nicklas Grossman to their blue line and are in the mix for Rick Nash, but his price tag is awfully high.

Possible trade targets

J.S. Giguere, Colorado Avalanche
Evgeni Nabokov, New York Islanders
Rick Nash, Columbus Blue Jackets
Alex Semin, Washington Capitals



St. Louis Blues (+1300)

Even though St. Louis is getting healthier with David Perron and Andy McDonald back in the mix, the Blues might make a play for somebody like Zach Parise. He’s a free agent in the offseason and can play a defensive style like Hitchcock employs, while also filling the net. The Blues average just 2.5 goals per game and will jump at an offensive asset as long as they don’t have to mortgage the future. Jeff Carter might be another good option.

Possible trade targets:

Jeff Carter, Columbus Blue Jackets
Zach Parise, New Jersey Devils
Paul Gaustad, Buffalo Sabres



Nashville Predators (+1800)

The Predators are in a sticky situation. They don’t know what’s going to happen with Ryan Suter or Shea Weber in the offseason, so it’s hard to say whether they’ll be overly active. If Nashville decides to really go for it, the club will look to add some depth up front and possible look for a younger defenseman in case Suter and/or Weber bolt.

Possible trade targets:

Derek Roy, Buffalo Sabres
P.A. Parenteau, New York Islanders
Johnny Oduya, Winnipeg Jets
Ales Hemsky, Edmonton Oilers

New York Rangers at Pittsburgh Penguins (-115, 5)

The New York Rangers are still rumored to be a frontrunner in the Rick Nash sweepstakes – whether their supporters like it or not.

After he scored late in regulation to tie Sunday’s game at Madison Square Garden the Rangers faithful responded with a “We don’t want you” chant. Derek Stepan scored in overtime to give New York a 4-3 win, marking the club’s seventh win in its last nine games.

"Our team has had a pretty good maturity level all year long, being able to bounce back in tough situations," Stepan told reporters. "It was a good test for us to see if we would bounce back, and I think we did a great job."

The Rangers have excellent chemistry with this club now, so it’ll be interesting to see if they do make any major moves before the deadline.

The Penguins came away with a 4-1 victory when these two teams met last month, but the Rangers have won four of the last five meetings between the clubs.

Pick: Rangers


Los Angeles Kings at Phoenix Coyotes (-135, 5)

Rich Nash has also been linked to the Los Angeles Kings, who would be happy to pick up such an offensive threat.

The Kings were blanked for the second game in a row Saturday, falling 1-0 to the Calgary Flames. Los Angeles also lost 1-0 to Phoenix before that, so Tuesday’s game will be huge in the Western Conference standings.

Los Angeles now sits ninth in the conference, two points back of seventh-place Phoenix.

"It's definitely frustrating. I think it's been frustrating all year for all the players in here," Kings captain Dustin Brown said. "The lack of scoring. Tonight we had some really good chances.”

Another poor offensive showing could force the Kings to make a move. They can’t afford to drop any further in the standings.

Pick: Under
