Preview: Mavericks (21-15) at Hornets (8-27)

Date: March 02, 2012 8:00 PM EDT

A hobbled Dirk Nowitzki isn't ideal for the slumping Dallas Mavericks, who have few off days for him to recover during a busy stretch.

They haven't needed much - or any - production from Nowitzki when facing the New Orleans Hornets this season, though.

The defending NBA champions are in a slump and unsure of the status of their superstar for Friday night's matchup at New Orleans.

Dallas' stretch of nine games in 12 days has gotten off to a rough start, beginning with a 93-92 home loss to New Jersey on Tuesday. It got worse in Wednesday's 96-85 defeat at Memphis when Nowitzki left early in the second quarter with lower back tightness that originated in pregame warmups.

Coach Rick Carlisle said Nowitzki's status for Friday is questionable.

"He felt something in warmups and tried to play," Carlisle said. "He clearly wasn't moving the way he needed to be moving, so we pulled the plug. He'll get treatment and we'll see where we're at Friday."

The loss was the third straight overall for the Mavericks (21-15), matching a season high. While Jason Terry and Rodrigue Beaubois combined for 34 points off the bench, Brendan Haywood was the only starter in double figures with 10.

The Mavericks average 94.0 points but were held to their lowest total in five games with Nowitzki missing most of the contest. Fellow starting forward Shawn Marion has struggled during the three-game skid, shooting 28.9 percent while averaging 8.7 points.

They should have a good chance to end their rough stretch against the Western Conference-worst Hornets - with or without Nowitzki.

Dallas beat New Orleans 96-81 on Jan. 7 despite 10 points and 2-for-11 shooting from Nowitzki, then escaped with an 83-81 win over the Hornets on Jan. 21 as Nowitzki sat out with a sore right knee.

The Mavericks, though, had Lamar Odom for both of those games, but his leave of absence for personal reasons has decreased the team's depth.

New Orleans (8-27) also is short-handed, missing Eric Gordon and Emeka Okafor due to injuries, and has dropped four of five. Wednesday's 95-84 loss to Toronto dropped the Hornets to 3-15 at home.

Jarrett Jack came off the bench for the sixth consecutive game due to sore knees which caused him to miss six of the previous seven. He scored 10 points but shot 3 for 12, then took blame for the defeat.

"I'm going to put this one on my shoulders squarely," Jack said. "This team looks to me for a lot, and I have to be the captain. I want to be that guy. I want the ball."

Marco Belinelli scored 20 points and Chris Kaman added 17 with 10 rebounds for his third straight double-double for the Hornets, who average a conference-low 88.2 points. They were outscored 33-15 in the fourth quarter Wednesday.

New Orleans' offensive woes may not bode well against a Dallas team holding opponents to a West-low 91.0 points per game.

Dallas has won three straight meetings, which is the longest winning streak for either team in the series since the Mavericks won 21 straight from 2000-07.

Preview: Nuggets (19-17) at Rockets (21-15)

Date: March 02, 2012 8:00 PM EDT

The Houston Rockets were one of the NBA's more consistent offensive teams before the All-Star break, but they've been flat since returning.

A visit from the Denver Nuggets, the league's worst defensive team on the road, could help them get back on track.

The Rockets go for their fifth straight home win when they face the Nuggets on Friday night.

Houston's four-game winning streak was snapped Wednesday as it lost 104-83 to Utah. The Rockets (21-15) shot 39.0 percent, went 6 of 23 from 3-point range and were outrebounded 50-34 as they watched an eight-point lead in the second quarter turn into a Jazz rout.

"We cannot just in the third quarter decide that we're not going to win the game and just let them do whatever they want," said forward Luis Scola, who scored a team-high 18 points. "We've got to fight our way to the end and if we lose, we lose."

Leading scorer Kevin Martin was held to six points - nearly 12 below his season average - while going scoreless in the second half. He missed all four field-goal attempts after halftime to finish 2 of 10.

It was the second straight game Martin and the Rockets struggled offensively. While they defeated Toronto 88-85 on Tuesday, they shot 38.7 percent. Martin scored 14 points but went 3 of 15 from the field and 1 of 6 from beyond the arc.

Houston went into the break eighth in the NBA with 97.5 points per game and ninth at 45.2 percent from the field. The Rockets were held to fewer than 90 points only three times before the break.

Houston could have an easier time against Denver, which has had little success stopping teams away from home. The Nuggets have lost four straight road games, giving up an average of 108.0 points over that span to raise their average to 103.6 allowed on the road - worst in the NBA.

Denver defeated Portland 104-95 on Wednesday, the first time in seven games it held an opponent to fewer than 100 points. The Nuggets are giving up 101.1 points a game overall, near the bottom of the league.

Denver received a boost from the return of point guard Ty Lawson, who missed two games with a sprained left ankle. He scored 11 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter to help hold off a late rally by the Trail Blazers, also finishing with nine assists.

The Nuggets hope for a similar lift from the impending returns of three others from injuries. Reserve Rudy Fernandez, averaging 9.3 points, is optimistic about returning Friday from a strained lower back, while forwards Danilo Gallinari and Nene are expected back shortly as well.

Gallinari, averaging a team-high 17.0 points, hasn't played since a 99-90 loss to Houston on Feb. 6.

Despite their recent slide and the injuries, the Nuggets are very much in the thick of the Western Conference playoff race.

"We're still hanging in with teams like Oklahoma City, the Clippers, all the top teams and we have three starters hurt," Lawson said. "Once we get them back, we're going to be a team everybody's scared of."

Denver, however, has lost six of eight away from home. It's dropped three in a row overall to Houston.

Preview: Bobcats (4-29) at Spurs (24-11)

Date: March 02, 2012 8:30 PM EDT

The San Antonio Spurs haven't experienced many home losses like their last one. It seems even less likely that it will carry over into their next game, particularly if Manu Ginobili returns.

Ginobili will be a game-time decision Friday night when the Spurs host the league-worst Charlotte Bobcats.

San Antonio lost for the second time in 15 home games after falling 96-89 to Chicago on Wednesday. The Spurs (24-11) shot 38.6 percent in the first half, and Tim Duncan and Tony Parker combined to shoot 35.1 percent overall.

Duncan scored 18 points but only had two in the fourth quarter, while Parker scored 11 before going scoreless in the final period.

"They have a good defense," Parker said. "At the same time, I thought we missed a lot of good shots that we usually make. ... I missed some easy shots and Timmy did too."

It was the first of a seven-game homestand for San Antonio, matching the longest in franchise history. The Spurs lost consecutive home games once last season.

They have a good chance to avoid that fate with Charlotte (4-29) coming into the AT&T Center having won twice in 19 road games. Also, coach Gregg Popovich said Ginobili may play after he resumed practicing Thursday.

Ginobili has missed the last four games with a strained left oblique after missing 22 earlier in the season with a broken left hand. He is averaging 12.1 points and 3.3 assists in nine games.

The Spurs, though, may not need him. They are 12-2 all-time against the Bobcats, going 6-1 at home. They've won four straight meetings in San Antonio by an average of 16.0 points, and Charlotte hasn't scored more than 98 points in any of those seven games.

While San Antonio tries to bounce back after coming out flat from the All-Star break, it says it won't overlook the lowly Bobcats.

"It doesn't matter who we're playing, that's something Pop preaches," forward Richard Jefferson said. "It's about doing what we do, making the fewest mistakes and playing hard."

The Bobcats have dropped three straight and 19 of 20, falling 109-94 at Detroit on Wednesday.

Charlotte is averaging 85.0 points and shooting 38.8 percent during the current skid, down from its Eastern Conference-worst averages of 86.7 points and 41.5 percent shooting.

The Bobcats were outrebounded 55-37 on Wednesday, an advantage made worse when they lost starting center Bismack Biyombo to a strained left shoulder. He was scheduled to have an MRI on Thursday.

"When we lost Bismack Biyombo, he was the one that was playing tough and rebounding for us and blocking shots; all things that we needed," coach Paul Silas said. "When we lost him, it was tough to make that up."

His absence could weaken an already poor Charlotte defense, which has given up an average of 106.3 points during the three-game skid. The Bobcats have been outrebounded by an average of 17.7 in those contests.

Duncan will try to take advantage, as he's averaged 16.5 points and 10.5 rebounds in six home games against Charlotte despite playing more than 35 minutes only once.

The one bright spot for Charlotte on Wednesday was the return of Gerald Henderson, who missed the previous nine games with a strained right hamstring. He had 13 points, including six in the fourth quarter.

Capping conference tourneys: How to bet the Big Six

The mid-majors began March Madness this week, as the small conference tournaments tipped off. But we know you’re waiting for the big boys to show up next week.

Ahh yes, those casual weekday afternoons, when bettors can drift away from their normal jobs and routines and play a game or two, or a future, in the middle of the day when you’re boss isn’t looking.

But which route do you choose? Do you lean on the chalk, thinking that a heavy favorite has too much to lose to not play well headed into the big tournament? Or do you ride a middling team, on the cusp of the Big Dance, that needs a strong showing on national television? A puzzling debate for sure.

So, let’s help. As we near the major tournaments from the BCS leagues, let’s analyze their history over the past three seasons:

Big East:

LAST THREE CHAMPIONS & SEEDS: No. 9 UConn, No. 3 West Virginia, No. 1 Louisville

THE SKINNY: Competition and travel in this super conference is fierce in the regular season, and it often leads to very strong teams finishing in the middle of the pack.

Take UConn, for instance, last season. A good team with plenty of talent, they couldn’t put it all together in the regular season, finishing 9-9 in the league. But Jim Calhoun and Kemba Walker rallied the troops at Madison Square Garden, as a No. 9 seed, and rode that all the way to a national title.

It’s a pattern for the Big East, where good teams become great at The Garden. In 2010, the Mountaineers, as a No. 3, won the league, and then went on to the Final Four, as well. So, keep that in mind. The Big East champion will have a great shot at a national title.

Big Ten:

LAST THREE CHAMPIONS & SEEDS: No. 1 Ohio State, No. 1 Ohio State, No. 3 Purdue

THE SKINNY: There is less travel and less parity in the Big Ten through the winter months, and traditionally, the chalk rises to the surface here, as a result. So, bear that in mind next week, as you ponder the Purdues and the Iowas and the Minnesotas of the world. Good value, good odds, but probably no chance of winning.

That said, there are five teams that are ranked right now: Michigan State, Ohio State, Michigan, Wisconsin and Indiana. But it’s hard, given the past history, to think anyone other than the Spartans or Buckeyes, who are both on the cusp of 25 wins, is going to win this tourney.

SEC:

LAST THREE CHAMPIONS & SEEDS: East No. 2 Kentucky, East No. 1 Kentucky, West No. 3 Mississippi State

THE SKINNY: The Bulldogs, in 2009, proved a middle-of-the-road team can go on a run here, as well. But, as a trend, you’re better off leaning on the elite. Kentucky, in the first two years of the John Calipari Era, displayed the sense of urgency here and flexed its muscle on the way to the Big Dance.

Hard to believe, with a No. 1 ranking, and a perfect league record through Wednesday, that things will change this year. These Wildcats, after all, are better than those two previous versions, and they have a tradition and a standard to uphold. Also bear in mind this: the fan base. Not unlike the Lakers or the Yankees or the Packers, Wildcats Nation travels everywhere and so the fans will be out in full force for the conference title. That leads to bigger expectations, and more incentive to do what everyone knows they’re capable of doing. Besides, there is only one other ranked team in the SEC this week -- Florida -- so the road becomes that much easier.

Pac-12:

LAST THREE CHAMPIONS & SEEDS: No. 3 Washington, No. 3 Washington, No. 6 USC

THE SKINNY: Certainly there is a bit of an unknown here, because the regular season featured Utah and Colorado for the first time. That’s more travel, and more gameplanning, and overall, a new wrinkle to the mix, though the Utes at 3-13 through Wednesday, have been relatively harmless.

But, what we know in the ever-changing league is this: No. 1 seeds struggle. In this incredibly mediocre conference where no one is ranked, you’re better off lying in the weeds, snaring a second-level seed, and walking into the tournament with no pressure. It’s worked for the Huskies the last two seasons, and the Trojans, in 2009, were even in the bottom half of the ladder.

But here’s the conundrum for bettors this year. Washington will be among the top two seeds one way or the other. Will they feed off past experiences and play loose? Or will they feel the pressure, tighten up and bow out early? It should give a ho-hum tourney a little juice one way or the other.

Big 12:

LAST THREE CHAMPIONS & SEEDS: No. 1 Kansas, No. 1 Kansas, No. 1 Missouri

THE SKINNY: OK, so no one is asking to shut down this tournament and not play it anymore because of lack for suspense. But in all the power conferences, the Big 12 has been the most consistent with its champions of late. If you’re No. 1 headed into the tourney, you win it.

This year? Well, there's some decent upstarts like an Iowa State, or a Kansas State, who have both topped 20 wins. But the chalk is the chalk, and with all due respect to Baylor, a Top 10 team and a program on the rise, that means Missouri and Kansas, who combined for 51 wins through Wednesday, are the ones to watch.

Now, there’s value with a team like the Bears, who can run with anyone and have the energy to make a deep run in the NCAA tournament. But if you want to play history, and trends, and can live with the price, the Jayhawks are your team.

ACC:

LAST THREE CHAMPIONS & SEEDS: No. 2 Duke, No. 1 Duke, No. 3 Duke

THE SKINNY: Perhaps, if history is your bag here, you might want to throw out the seeds. Because regardless of the number that precedes them, the Blue Devils seem to be the play. This year, they will be among the top two seeds, and though there is a debate on whether they are truly better than North Carolina, pound for pound, there is something to be said for pedigree and knowing how to win when it matters, not unlike Kansas and Kentucky.

The thing that often gets lost in conference tourney betting -- and it plays a factor here, big time -- is regional, recruiting and rivalries.

Let's face it, Duke will survive without another ACC banner, should they stumble here. But to beat the Tar Heels on this stage, or any other team they compete against off the floor, means that much more over the long haul for the program. The current players may not think that way, certainly. They may not care. But you can bet that coach Mike Krzyzewski knows it, and you can expect him to coach with that in mind.

Armadillo: Friday's six-pack

-- AJ Burnett will have surgery today to fix a broken orbital bone by his eye after he got hurt practicing bunting. More bad news for the Bucs.

-- Back in 1973, George Steinbrenner bought the Bronx Bombers for $8.7M; this year, the Bombers have 10 players earning $10M+.

-- Of the 10 teams in the Missouri Valley Conference, six of them were either 9-9 or 8-10 in conference play this season.

-- Thunder came back from down 11 after three quarters to nip Orlando, 105-102. Oklahoma City is now 29-7.

-- Teams are 7-1 vs spread the night after playing the Thunder.

-- Nevada held off New Mexico State 65-61, clinched #1 seed in WAC tournament, which is next week in Las Vegas, at Orleans Arena.


***************


Armadillo: Friday's List of 13: Things I'm looking for this month.........

13) March is mostly about college hoops; who will make the field of 68? Who will whine the most about getting left out? My advice to those who don’t make it? Win more games next year. Its as soimple as that.

12) Middle Tennessee? Belmont? VCU? Long Beach State? Creighton? Murray State? Iona? Who is this year’s VCU/Butler? Will there be a Cinderella story this March?

11) At long last, the great national mystery will unravel and we’ll find out where Peyton Manning is playing next year. Draft isn’t until late April, but NFL free agency starts March 13.

10) Will Knicks sink or swim in the NBA’s second half? Will Jeremy Lin continue to thrive, or will the Knicks have chemistry issues? I’m guessing they’ll be just fine.

9) Pac-12 stinks in basketball this year; if Cal wins conference tourney, do they get any other bids? Arizona? Washington? Once the tournament starts, will the conference win any games? Cal has to avoid a team with extreme quickness.

8) What about Harvard? If they get in the field of 68, will they win a game? They’ve beaten Florida State/LMU, so they’re capable, but they’ve also lost to Penn/Princeton, so not sure they’ve improved since the holidays.

7) the coaching carousel has already slowly started to spin; it’ll pick up steam once Championship Week is over, and then after the first weekend of the NCAAs. Always interesting to see who goes for what jobs.

6) Which unknown minor leaguer will take spring training by storm and become the rage of fantasy baseball leagues?

I remember Brandon McCarthy doing this for the White Sox a few years ago; I went to great lengths to get him on my squad, then he fizzled out. Now 5-6 years later, he’s the A’s Opening Day starter. Go figure.

5) Will the A’s Opening Day 3B be a guy named Wes Timmons, who spent the winter as a substitute teacher? Don’t laugh, it very well could happen.

4) If you have the NBA Full Court package, watch the Timberwolves; very fun team to watch, with lot of good young players. Rick Adelman could very well be the most underrated head coach in any team sport. As I write this, Minnesota is 18-17, 8-7 on the road, and they haven’t even been on the cover of Sports Illustrated yet.

3) Will Eldrick Woods win a golf tournament before the Masters? Been over two years now since his last full-field win. Seems like he's lost that arrogance, that assurance that he was always going to win.

2) Is Kentucky battle-tested enough to survive six tournament games in March. They’re obviously talented enough, but they haven’t had to play a lot of nailbiters. Surviving stressful situations makes a team stronger. Wildcats haven’t had a lot of stress this season, because they’re extremely talented.

1) March is my favorite month of the year; ton of important basketball games, the weather starts getting warmer, spring just around the corner. Should be a fun month.
