NBA on ABC betting preview: Clippers at Knicks, Lakers at Heat
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Los Angeles Clippers at New York Knicks (-3.5, 193.5)

The Los Angeles Clippers got Chris Paul, Chauncey Billups and Blake Griffin back on Friday, but it did not do much good at the Miami Heat. Those three will try to break the Clippers out of their current funk when they visit the New York Knicks on Sunday afternoon. Los Angeles has lost four of its five games this month as Paul (bruised knee cap) and Griffin (hamstring) have struggled to stay on the court.

The Knicks had to wait to get back into New York thanks to the blizzard that snowed under much of the Northeast on Friday and Saturday. But after finishing a two-game road trip with a win in Minnesota, New York managed to land safely on Saturday afternoon and should be all set to take on the stumbling Clippers. Los Angeles ran into the LeBron James freight train on Friday and not even the presence of Paul and Griffin could keep the game from turning into a rout.

TV: 1 p.m. ET, ABC

ABOUT THE CLIPPERS (35-17, 28-24-0 ATS): Paul had missed 12 of the previous 14 games due to the injured kneecap and Billups has played in only four games this season after recovering from surgery and battling past a foot problem. Los Angeles fell into a big rut in the games Paul missed and has lost eight of its last 11 overall to fall from the top of the Western Conference into third place behind San Antonio and Oklahoma City. While scoring had been a problem with Paul on the shelf, the Clippers showed the various defensive holes that have developed in the 111-89 setback at Miami on Friday. The Knicks don’t have anyone like James on the roster, but Carmelo Anthony is certainly capable of taking advantage of Los Angeles on the wings and in the post like James did on Friday. The Clippers are down to the last two stops on the Grammy-demanded eight-game road trip before a stretch of five straight at Staples Center.

ABOUT THE KNICKS (32-16, 25-21-2 ATS): Only the brilliance of James has kept New York out of the top spot in the Eastern Conference, and Anthony is not all that far behind in terms of MVP-type impact. The All-Star forward went for 36 points and nine rebounds in the 100-94 win over Minnesota on Friday and has put up 31.3 points in the last three contests. The Knicks have won six of their last seven games overall and have held opponents under the century mark in each of the victories. New York relies plenty on the 3-pointer for offense and is shooting 41 percent from beyond the arc over the last seven games, despite a slight dip (8-for-26) against the Timberwolves on Friday.

TRENDS:

* Over is 4-0 in the last four meetings.
* Over is 4-1 in the last five meetings in New York.
* Road team is 7-2 ATS in the last nine meetings.
* Clippers are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings.
* Underdog is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings.

BUZZER BEATERS:

1. The Knicks have won five straight at home and are 19-6 at Madison Square Garden.

2. Paul has averaged 21.3 points and 10.3 assists in 11 career games against New York.

3. Los Angeles F Matt Barnes suffered a finger injury on Friday but is expected to play Sunday.



Los Angeles Lakers at Miami Heat (-7, 202)

LeBron James even has his teammates thinking he’s from another planet with how strong his game has been of late. The Los Angeles Lakers, who visit James and the Miami Heat on Sunday afternoon, are hoping for a rare off day from the superstar forward. James needed only 11 field goal attempts to reach 30 points in a rout of the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday and is shooting 76.7 percent over the last three games. The Lakers are coming off a victory.

Los Angeles got Dwight Howard (shoulder) back on Thursday but it did not do much good in a rout at Boston. But the All-Star center settled in a little better in Friday’s win at Charlotte and pulled down 11 rebounds in 38 minutes. The Heat don’t have anyone to match up against a healthy Howard, but they do have James. The Lakers will likely run some combination of Kobe Bryant, Metta World Peace, Earl Clark and Antawn Jamison at James on Sunday.

TV: 3:30 p.m. ET, ABC

ABOUT THE LAKERS (24-27, 21-29-1 ATS): Los Angeles has won four of its last five games but has only faced one playoff-caliber team in that stretch and failed miserably in a 116-95 loss at the Celtics. With Pau Gasol out at least a month after suffering a foot injury earlier in the road trip, Howard’s return from a torn labrum has become a topic of much debate surrounding the team. Howard will require surgery at some point and is playing through pain while the team is shorthanded. Bryant went scoreless in the first half at Charlotte on Friday before finishing with 20 points, eight assists and seven rebounds in the 100-93 triumph. Bryant, who has become more of a distributor as the Lakers have started to improve, did not record an assist in the loss at Boston.

ABOUT THE HEAT (33-14, 23-24-0 ATS): James has improved his game so much that even fellow All-Stars are amazed. “He’s off the planet right now,” Dwyane Wade told reporters of James. “He’s not even the best basketball player on the planet, he’s surpassed the planet.” James went 9-for-11 in the 111-89 win over the Clippers, helping his team to a convincing win despite Chris Bosh and Ray Allen sitting out due to illness. James put on a similar shooting display at the Lakers on Jan. 17, going 17-for-25 from floor en route to a season-high 39 points in a 99-90 victory. Wade added 27 points in that victory and is battling his way through the illness taking over the Heat locker room. Wade has put up at least 20 points in each of the last four games.

TRENDS:

* Under is 5-0 in the last five meetings.
* Under is 7-1 in the last eight meetings in Miami.
* Lakers are 1-8 ATS in the last nine meetings.
* Underdog is 8-1 ATS in the last nine meetings.
* Lakers are 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings in Miami.

BUZZER BEATERS:

1. The Heat have taken five of the last six meetings.

2. Howard, who spent the previous eight seasons with the Orlando Magic in the Southeast Division, has averaged 17 points and 13.4 rebounds in his career against Miami.

3. Sunday marks the last stop on Los Angeles’ seven-game Grammy-inspired road trip.

Five NBA teams keeping over bettors in the black
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NBA scoreboards have been humming over the past seven days, with big scores handing over bettors even bigger paydays. Since last Saturday, NBA games have posted a collective 30-21 over/under count.

While that doesn’t seem like much to the casual basketball fan, the betting public recognizes that the over is hitting at more than 58 percent in that seven-day stretch. And 58 percent is like striking oil for sports bettors. On the year, the NBA boasts a 370-362 over/under count (50.55 percent) heading into Saturday’s action.

More than a few teams are trending toward the high side of the total in recent games - even some which have been steady under plays all season. Here are five clubs cashing in the most for over bettors in recent games:

Indiana Pacers (4-1 over/over last five, 6-2 over/under last eight)

When the Pacers are playing over, you know something is up. Indiana is the perfect storm of under plays, ranking among the worst in offense and best in defense. But the Pacers, who average just 92.8 points per game, are scoring 102.75 points a night in their last eight. That offensive surge could get a boost from the return of SF Danny Granger before the All-Star break.

Denver Nuggets (6-0 over/under last six, 9-1 over/under last 10)

The Nuggets have been the hottest team in the NBA, coming up big not only for spread bettors but also fans of the over. Heading into Saturday, Denver rides an eight-game winning streak and has played above the number in seven of those games. The Nuggets are averaging an insane 115 points a night during this streak and have topped the 120-point plateau three times in those games.

Golden State Warriors (4-0 over/under last four, 8-1 over/under last nine)

Winning over plays is nothing new to Warriors fans. The franchise has lived by an offense-first philosophy for the better part of a decade and 2012-13 is no different. The Warriors’ lack of defense is as much to blame for those high scores as well. Golden State has allowed opponents to score over 119 points during their current three-game road trip, which ends in Dallas Saturday. Most notably, they gave up 140 points to Houston earlier this week.

Phoenix Suns (4-1 over/under last five, 6-2 over/under last eight)

The Suns’ current over run has more to do with their recent opponents than the team itself. Phoenix has played Oklahoma City, New Orleans, Memphis, Golden State and Dallas in the last five games. Those teams have a combined 19-6 over/under record in each of their last five games. The Suns offense isn’t putting much of a dent in those totals, scoring only 93.6 points in that five-game span. Phoenix finishes a home-and-home with the Thunder as hosts Sunday.

Memphis Grizzlies (3-0 over/under last three, 7-2 over/under last nine)

It seems Rudy Gay’s offense isn’t the only thing the Grizzlies are missing. In the five games since dealing their leading scorer, Memphis is averaging just 91 points and giving up an average of 94.8 points against. Those defensive numbers are nearly five points more than the Grizzlies’ top-ranked D’ has allowed this season. This over stretch is a complete 180 for the top under bet in the NBA - 19-29-1 over/under heading into the weekend.

Spurs at Bulls: What bettors need to know
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

San Antonio Spurs at Chicago Bulls (-1.5, 192)

The Chicago Bulls are in the midst of a stretch where they are playing eight of nine games on the road, and the lone home game could be their toughest test when they host the San Antonio Spurs on Monday night. The Bulls are coming off a six-game road trip in which they went 3-3 and saw their typical iron-clad defense shredded in back-to-back losses to Central Division rival Indiana and Denver. The Bulls did tighten things up defensively in their last outing, holding off the Utah Jazz 93-89 on Friday night.

San Antonio is facing a trek even more difficult than that of the Bulls, playing the fourth contest on its nine-game rodeo road trip. Winners of 12 of 13, the Spurs bounced back from a loss in Detroit by annihilating the Brooklyn Nets 111-86 on Sunday night. Despite playing without Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili, the Spurs flexed their own defensive muscles, giving up only 29 points in the second half after permitting 35 in the first quarter. San Antonio became the first team in the league to win 40 games.

TV: 8 p.m. ET, Fox Sports Southwest (San Antonio), Comcast SportsNet Chicago, NBATV

ABOUT THE SPURS (40-12, 29-21-2 ATS): Duncan has missed three straight and eight of 10 and Ginobili has sat out four in a row, but Parker has been immense at the start of the road trip. He had 29 points and 11 assists against Brooklyn and is averaging 30.3 points and nine assists in the last three. He has five double-doubles and 10 20-point games in his last 11 to insert his name into the MVP conversation. "He's carrying the whole team, especially when Tim and Manu are out," Spurs forward Boris Diaw said. "He's doing everything on the court."

ABOUT THE BULLS (30-20, 21-29-0 ATS): Chicago has also been dealing with myriad injuries. Center Joakim Noah has missed three of the last five games due to plantar fasciitis and is a game-time decision. Guard Kirk Hinrich will sit out his sixth straight game with an elbow infection. In addition, power forward Carlos Boozer was sidelined for the first three games of the recent road trip but had 19 points in the win over Utah. Boozer, who has failed to score 20 points in 10 games, has been linked to trade talks involving Toronto's Andrea Bargnani.

TRENDS:

* Under is 8-1 in the last nine meetings.
* Spurs are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings.
* Spurs are 10-4-3 ATS in their last 17 games playing on zero days rest.
* Bulls are 6-17 ATS in their last 23 vs. Western Conference.

BUZZER BEATERS:

1. The fastest team to 40 wins hasn't meant much in the past seven seasons. Only the Boston Celtics (2007-08) went on to advance to the NBA Finals.

2. Chicago has won four of the past five meetings.

3. San Antonio owns the league's most road victories (18-10).
