NBA Betting Preview

Opening Lines: Golden State -3½, O/U 190
Television: Local Networks

Indiana Pacers: Indiana (7-8 straight-up and against the spread) will be playing the second half of a back-to-back after visiting Sacramento on Friday (result pending). The Pacers started their four-game road trip in fine fashion on Tuesday with a 79-77 win at the Lakers as 8 ½-point ‘dogs. They’re 3-6 SU and 4-5 ATS away on the season.

Golden State Warriors: The Warriors (9-6 SU, 9-5-1 ATS) last played on Thursday night, a 106-105 win over Denver as 1½-point home underdogs with power forward David Lee exploding for 31 points. Golden State is now 4-0 SU and ATS in its last four at home. These teams last met in February, with the Pacers beating the Warriors the last three SU overall and the last four ATS.

Sacramento Kings at Los Angeles Clippers
NBA Betting Preview
Date: 12/1/2012 at 10:30 p.m. (ET)
Opening Lines: LA -10½, O/U 198
Television: NBA-TV

Sacramento Kings: The Kings (4-10 SU, 4-9-1 ATS) will head down the California coast after the Indiana game on Friday. That could be problematic at 1-6 ATS in their last seven games on zero days rest. Sacramento has lost all five of its road games this season (2-3 ATS), but this is only the second one played since November 11.

Los Angeles Clippers: The Clippers (9-6 SU, 8-7 ATS) ended a four-game losing streak with a 101-95 home win over Minnesota on Wednesday. That was a failure to cover as 9-point favorites, making Los Angeles 0-5 ATS in its last five. The "over" is 3-0 in the last thee for the Clips, just clearing the 194-point total in the last game. These Pacific Division rivals are meeting for the first time this year. Sacramento is 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings in Los Angeles, with the "under" going 5-0-1 in those contests.

NBA game of the day: Grizzlies at Spurs
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Memphis Grizzlies at San Antonio Spurs (-5.5, 194.5)

The San Antonio Spurs are dealing with distractions associated with Gregg Popovich’s decision to rest four of his better players on Thursday and will look to sidestep the chaos when they host the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday. The organization was fined $250,000 by NBA commissioner David Stern on Friday, one day after Popovich had Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Danny Green fly home prior to Thursday’s game in Miami to rest up for the Grizzlies.

Memphis has the best record in the NBA and enters with a four-game winning streak. The Grizzlies are playing just their sixth road game – they are 4-1 – when they go up against the Spurs. “We’ve been playing pretty decent all year long at home,” Memphis coach Lionel Hollins said. “It was a long homestand. It’s probably time to go back on the road. It’s not easy on the road, but I think your juices get flowing and you get stale being at home.” San Antonio is 4-2 at home but hasn’t played at the AT&T Center since losing to the Los Angeles Clippers on Nov. 19.

TV: 8:30 p.m. ET, SportsSouth (Memphis), KENS (San Antonio)

ABOUT THE GRIZZLIES (12-2): Memphis gave up just 78 points in Friday’s victory over the Detroit Pistons, matching a season-low for points allowed set against the Cleveland Cavaliers two games earlier. The Grizzlies forced 22 turnovers with point guard Mike Conley racking up a season-high six steals to raise his season average to 2.46 per game. Memphis has held 13 consecutive opponents under 100 since giving up 101 in a season-opening loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. The Grizzlies lead the league by allowing just 90.1 points per game.

ABOUT THE SPURS (13-4): San Antonio’s reserves gave the Heat quite a battle before falling 105-100. The Spurs were playing their fourth game in five nights – all on the road – and Popovich decided it was more important to have his key players well-rested for the Grizzlies than have them play against Miami. Gary Neal scored a team-high 20 points and Tiago Splitter tallied 18 as five San Antonio players scored in double figures. “Pop is the coach of the San Antonio Spurs,” Neal said. “He did what’s best for us.”

TRENDS:

* Grizzlies are 4-0 ATS in their last four road games.
* Under is 5-1 in Grizzlies’ last six overall.
* Over is 6-0 in Spurs’ last six overall.
* Grizzlies are 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings.

BUZZER BEATERS:

1. The Grizzlies are just 1-15 over their last 16 regular-season visits to San Antonio.

2. Ginobili scored 20 points and drained six 3-pointers in Thursday’s rout of the Orlando Magic.

3. Memphis has allowed just 79.3 points over their last three games.
