Can the Rockets Ascend to the Throne? - NBA Southwest Division Preview

Written by

We’re in the midst of the NBA preseason, so there’s no better time to look at what to expect from the upcoming season. The draft and free agency are both behind us at this point in time. Teams are getting ready to figure out their rotations and prepping for the regular season, which gets underway on Tuesday, October 16. The Golden State Warriors are the two-time defending champions as they wiped out the Cavaliers in what was the fourth straight meeting between the teams in the NBA Finals. Golden State took three of those four meetings: can they continue their run of success this season or will someone else step up and knock them off their throne? Today, we take a look at the Southwest Division. The division had a clear delineation between the haves and the have-nots in 2017-18. Three teams made the playoffs, led by Houston, who finished with the league’s best record. The problem was, the other two teams were 13th and 14th, respectively in the Western Conference. Will someone step up and challenge the Rockets in the division or is this Houston’s title to lose? We’ll take a look at the teams in order of last season’s standings. Let’s take a look without further ado.

Can the Jazz Play Sweet Notes to a Division Crown? - NBA Northwest Division Preview

Written by

We’re in the midst of the NBA preseason, so there’s no better time to look at what to expect from the upcoming season. The draft and free agency are both behind us at this point in time. Teams are getting ready to figure out their rotations and prepping for the regular season, which gets underway on Tuesday, October 16. The Golden State Warriors are the two-time defending champions as they wiped out the Cavaliers in what was the fourth straight meeting between the teams in the NBA Finals. Golden State took three of those four meetings: can they continue their run of success this season or will someone else step up and knock them off their throne? Today, we take a look at the Northwest Division. The division was the lone one in the league to have all five teams finish above .500 and four of the teams made the postseason. Denver finished 46-36 and ended up as the lone team to miss the postseason. The Nuggets were knocked out in a winner take all elimination game against Minnesota in the regular season finale for both teams. Had Denver played in the Eastern Conference, they would have been seeded sixth and made the postseason. The five teams in the division were separated by just three games last season: will history repeat itself in 2018-19? We’ll take a look at the teams in order of last season’s standings. Let’s take a look without further ado.

How to Bet the 2018 NBA Draft

Written by

The 2018 NBA Draft tips-off on Thursday from Brooklyn, New York at 7pmET. There's a very good chance that Phoenix takes Arizona center DeAndre Ayton with the first pick but after that, it's anybody's guess. From a betting perspective, you can lay money on Ayton going first (-2500) or the best Euro prospect in the draft, Luka Doncic (+2200).

Can the King claim his fourth crown?

That team featured the likes of Damon Jones, Eric Snow, Daniel "Booby" Gibson, Anderson Varejao and Zydrunas Ilgauskas. Yet, this current squad is referred to as LeBron and the "others".

Houston’s Lack Of 2nd Half Scoring Leads To Bad Beat On The Over

Written by

25 points in the second half by one of the best offensive teams in the league. That is just unheard of in the modern era of three-point shooting. That 25 points that the Rockets scored in the second half also led to many Over bettors in the game (like me) to throw things around the house.

Are The Cavaliers Over-Valued Or Are The Celtics Under-Valued?

Written by

Early money has come in on the Cavaliers in this game seven, despite the fact that they may be without Kevin Love and have not played well at this Venue in this series, so are the Cavaliers over-valued or are the Celtics under-valued?

Written by
