ATS HOOPS Overall – CBB: 30-25 NBA: 75-81

Just returned from a weekend out of town after seeing way too many old friends for the wrong reason. Glad to be back and ready to bring some happiness back to my ATS world…Game on!

When the King asks for something...He gets it!

CLEVELAND CAVS (-3) @ MILWAUKEE BUCKS
King James looks rejuvenated after Danny Ferry swung a spectacular deal and surrounded his leader with some muscle (Big Ben), spot-up shooting (Wally), and a PG that can actually play some defense (Delonte “MFing” West). While the Bucks have looked solid at home of late, nobody on the squad plays much defense and nobody besides Bogut crashes the boards. Not a good recipe with Bron-Bron slashing from the perimeter and four rebounding machines available to wear-down the Australian (Big Z, Wallace, Joe Smith, and the return of Side-Show Bob). Just as we’ve seen with the Lakers and Mavs since their trades...

With some new ballers, expect the Cavs to play with passion!

Just as we’ve seen with the Lakers and Mavs since their trades, the energy-level seems to skyrocket as new players want to prove their worth and team-leaders seem rejuvenated. Even as the Cavs continue to adjust to the newbies, with LeBron handling the rock 80% of the time I can’t see them struggling and actually expect some blow-outs over the next few weeks…Cavs by 7-11 points

Laker%20colors.jpg
Everyone looks smooth in Laker colors lately!

PORTLAND BLAZERS @ LOS ANGELES LAKERS (-15.5)
The Lakeshow has been drubbing teams on the roads since the Gasol trade, and you have to expect an even better showing in-front of their Hollywood fans. Kobe seems possessed since the Lakers rewarded him with Pau and the bench has been remarkable all season. Especially with the Zenmaster tightening his rotation, look for the role-players to play with playoff efficiency as they look to impress their headmaster and Mr. Bryant even during a blow-out. Tonight, they face a Blazers squad that has been in free-fall of late and will be without do-everything guard Brandon Roy (ankle). With Roy, the Blazers lost at Seattle by 12 on Friday…the same team the Lakers just beat by 20 on Sunday. Lakers by 20-24 points

Unlv.jpg
Raise ur arms if u like the Running Rebels tonight!

SAN DIEGO ST AZTECS @ UNLV REBELS (-7.5)
The Rebels are loaded with veteran-talent and actually won at SDST a month ago. Tonight, they face an Aztec squad that will be without 2nd leader scorer Kyle Spain (suspension), who played in their last contest against UNLV, and are only 6-5 on the road this season. As for the Running Rebels, they haven’t lost at home since mid-December and only had two teams stay within double-digits at the Thomas & Mack Center since then. While the Aztecs beat conference leading BYU at home on Saturday, I expect a let-down tonight as the Rebels have struggled on the road following a home victory…UNLV by 12-16 points

IT'S GREAT TO BE BACK TO TALKING BBALL...
