Mavericks And Rockets In Texas Showdown

NBA betting action is generally going to take a backseat to the Elite 8 in the NCAA Tournament on Saturday, but there are still nine pro games for us to analyze.

The showcase game of the evening will pit the Houston Rockets up against the defending NBA champs, the Dallas Mavericks. This showdown in Houston is pivotal in the Southwest Division standings. The Rockets, Mavericks, and Memphis Grizzlies are separated by a total of just one game.

Dallas has absolutely owned this series of late, going 4-0 SU and 3-1 ATS in the last four clashes. It is also 7-2 ATS in its last nine visits to the Toyota Center. The Rockets have already won and covered both of their first two games on this four-game home stand, averaging 108.0 PPG in the process. The Mavericks had their four-game winning streak halted on Wednesday against the Los Angeles Lakers.

This 8:00 p.m. (ET) tip can be seen on local FOX Sports networks and on NBA TV.

This is only the first of two games on tap for those who have NBA TV. The Golden State Warriors will also host the Sacramento Kings at Oracle Arena in a 10:30 p.m. (ET) tip.

These two teams are going nowhere fast in the Western Conference, and they are both frequently overmatched. Injuries are plaguing both teams as well. Jason Thompson is battling an ankle injury that he suffered against the Utah Jazz on Thursday night and he is listed as questionable for this one. Golden State is still without Stephen Curry and Andrew Bogut with ankle injuries while Andris Biedrins has missed two straight games with a groin injury.

Sacramento had covered four in a row in this series before it was destroyed by the Warriors at home 115-89 on March 13.

There is one afternoon tip on Saturday, and it comes at Staples Center, where the Los Angeles Clippers will host the Memphis Grizzlies. The coach on the hottest seat in the game right now is Vinny Del Negro, who has reportedly lost control of his locker room.

That being said, the best remedy for a bad locker room is winning, and this is going to be a great opportunity against a Memphis team that is just 1-4 SU and 0-5 ATS in its last five games. However, the Clippers have dropped three in a row SU and six in a row from an ATS standpoint.

Tip time in Tinseltown is set for 3:00 p.m. (ET).

In the lone 7:00 p.m. (ET) tip, the Washington Wizards will take on the Atlanta Hawks. The 7:30 p.m. (ET) start times feature a lot of teams in the Eastern Conference that are trying to get back in the playoff race. The New York Knicks, who are still undefeated under the direction of interim coach Mike Woodson, will battle the Detroit Pistons while the New Jersey Nets host the Charlotte Bobcats.

There are three 8:00 p.m. (ET) duels on Saturday night. Aside from the Dallas/Houston clash, the Toronto Raptors will look for the upset of the Chicago Bulls in the Windy City while the San Antonio Spurs try to improve their 12-10 SU road record against the New Orleans Hornets.

At 8:30 p.m. (ET), two Central Division rivals will square off at the Bradley Center, where the Milwaukee Bucks will host the Indiana Pacers.

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

Sacramento Kings at Golden State Warriors (-2.5, 207)

It’s hard to find a bigger fan of the recent Golden State trades than guard Klay Thompson.

The Warriors rookie guard has blown up in the six games since the team shipped out Monta Ellis and opened a starting spot for him in the backcourt. Over that span, the first-year player from Washington State is averaging 20 points in 37 minutes as he is shooting 40.9 percent from the field. Not the highest percentage, but not bad for a player of his pedigree learning how to score in a variety of ways every night. In a 101-92 win over New Orleans this week, Thompson exploded for a career-high 27 points. Overall, he is averaging 9.6 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game.

"He came into the league being able to get open off screens and get shots," Warriors coach Mark Jackson told reporters. "The thing that he's gotten better with doing from Day 1 is putting the ball on the floor. He was not able to do that the first time he stepped on an NBA court. Right now he's comfortable doing it, and he's going to continue to get better."

The Warriors are 5-0 ATS their past five against the Pacific Division.

Pick: Warriors


Memphis Grizzlies at Los Angeles Clippers (-3.5, 190.5)

It looks like Vinny Del Negro might want to start checking the real estate market.

"Vinny has lost the team," one source told ESPN.com. "They don't want to play hard for him."

Reports leaked late this week the Clippers coach was losing the locker room and the team was starting to revolt. Well, going 4-6 SU and 2-8 ATS the past 10 games certainly can’t help. Another big issue is the coach’s inability to establish a consistent rotation with a talented squad. Guard Eric Bledsoe has seen his minutes go from double-digits to a seat on the bench some nights and starter and team-favorite Randy Foye has gone from key cog to the pine after the team acquired streak-shooter Nick Young.

Del Negro also reportedly has refused to critize stars Blake Griffin and Chris Paul while trashing the team’s reserves.

"That's a big problem," one player told ESPN.com. "The best coaches jump on whoever deserves it, no matter who it is."

And even with the team’s struggles, Del Negro refuses to admit he is an anchor brining down the team.

"When you're losing games, everyone jumps on you. If you can't take the heat, you shouldn't do the job," Del Negro told the Los Angeles Times. "That's part of it. You have to win games. That's what you're measured on and we haven't played as well as I would like or anybody."

Did we mention the Clippers are 2-8 ATS the past 10 games?

Pick: Grizzlies
