NBA Free Pick : Lost to the Nets at Home
One of the teams that are a mess at this juncture are the Nets. Yet waiving Joe Johnson did not affect this less than twenty win team from stealing a 98-96 win in Utah. Now the press are losing their minds over the 9th place Western Conference Jazz. Panic is in the air at home so this is the best time to start a long losing trip. Young teams have hard times answering difficult questions from local media. They added Shelvin Mack to the ranks and yet the point guard position is still under performing. Neto and Burke have been little better at this position. A high amount of turnovers with their recent awful three point shooting can not overcome their energetic defense.
Boston Looking Up
Offensively they were firing on all cylinders. They even over came an early double digit hole to throttle the Heat the last time out. Some young teams have effectiveness at playing a high pace with them. This is seen in the Celts 124-122 loss. However, that was on the back end of consecutive games. What has keep them at 35-25 is their stellar assist to turnover ratio. It has been close to 2 to 1 as of late. Their defense suffers at time but they will not lack from point production.
Bad timing for Utah. First game out against a team that will still get their points against them. Boston will not self destruct turnover wise. Point guard production for Utah is way down. – 5 1/2 is very safe in the eyes of investors looking to profit on the Celtics. Celebrate Leap Year in style with extra cash in your bankroll. Bet Boston on the 29th.
