ATLANTA HAWKS (65-26) at WASHINGTON WIZARDS (52-37)


2015-05-11

The Hawks will be trying to even up the series at 2-2 when they face the Wizards in Washington on Monday.



The Hawks did not have an answer for the Wizards offense in Game 2, allowing Washington to shoot 47.4percent from the field and 35.7percent from the outside. The Wizards also outrebounded them 54-49 and Atlanta will need to come out with a lot of fire on Monday or they could be heading home shortly. They have not had much success in Washington though, losing five of their past six games at the Verizon Center SU and three of those games ATS. Its worth noting that four of the past five games in this series have gone Over the total. This Hawks team is 27-13 ATS after playing three consecutive games this season and also happens to be up against a Wizards group that is 1-8 ATS after a home game where both teams score 100 points or more as well. Washington is, however, 31-19 ATS as an underdog of 3.5 to 9.5 points over the past two seasons and Atlanta is just 1-12 ATS after two straight games with 10 or more steals on the year. PF Paul Millsap (Illness) is probable for the Hawks, but PG John Wall (Hand) is doubtful for the Wizards in this one.



The Hawks were unable to pick up a much-needed victory in Game 3 and SG Kyle Korver (13.8 PPG, 5.7 RPG, 1.3 SPG in playoffs) needs to make a bigger impact on the game. He had just six points in 37 minutes on Saturday and is shooting just 38.1percent from the outside in the postseason. He is a much better shooter than that and needs to start hitting some shots to space the floor for his teammates. PG Jeff Teague (13.7 PPG, 7.7 APG, 1.8 SPG in playoffs) is also going to need to play a lot better moving forward. The Wizards are playing without John Wall, so Teague should be able to get to the rim at will in this series. Hes going to have to be very aggressive as a scorer in Game 4. PF Paul Millsap (15.0 PPG, 9.2 RPG, 2.2 SPG in playoffs) was sick in Game 3 and it showed, as he finished with just eight points and two rebounds in 23 minutes. He did not look like himself and will need to be better, but it likely wont happen unless he is feeling better. C Al Horford (14.8 PPG, 10.1 RPG, 4.4 APG, 1.3 BPG in playoffs) had 12 points and 10 boards in 28 minutes in Game 4. He tweaked his knee in the fourth quarter last game and didnt reenter the game, but should be good to go in this one. Hell need to be a big presence inside on both ends of the floor.


The Wizards have played extremely well in this series and have been able to make adjustments whenever theyve been needed. SF Paul Pierce (15.6 PPG, 4.0 RPG in playoffs) has provided this team with the leader it needs and he hit a buzzer-beater on Saturday to put the Wizards up 2-1 in this series. Ever since Randy Wittman moved him to the power forward position, this team has thrived offensively and hell need to keep playing well with John Wall out. SG Bradley Beal (21.1 PPG, 5.1 RPG, 4.6 APG, 1.6 SPG in playoffs) continues to play at a high level in this postseason and had 17 points and eight assists in Game 3. He took over most of the play-making responsibilities with Wall out and will likely continue to do that. C Marcin Gortat (15.0 PPG, 9.9 RPG, 1.6 BPG in playoffs) had 14 points and eight boards to go along with three blocks in Game 3. His size continues to be a big issue for the small frontcourt of Millsap and Horford. PF Nene Hilario (7.6 PPG, 6.0 RPG in playoffs) and SF Otto Porter (11.4 PPG, 8.1 RPG, 1.3 SPG in playoffs) were major difference makers in Game 3, combining for 34 points and 16 rebounds. They hit shots when they needed to and must continue to contribute with Wall out.

LeBron James Destination
2010-06-25

The LeBron Sweepstakes—Place Your Bets Now!

Maybe you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t heard, so I’ll repeat it just in case; this summer, the NBA features one of the best storylines in years. This is the Summer of LeBron. Even though such megastars as Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Amar’e Stoudemire and others are free agents this summer, the big prize is LeBron James. There’s no team that wouldn’t love to get LeBron. The sad truth for 31 of those 32 teams, however, is that only one team will win the LeBron sweepstakes. LeBron hasn’t given many clues, but here are the five most likely destinations for King James this summer. And all of the NBA betting community is on the edge of their seats for this.

5. New York Knicks This has been wildly speculated for years now, as people take LeBron’s stated goal of becoming a billionaire and run with it. Let’s clear this up right now. This. Is. Not. Happening. LeBron has already become a transcendent figure in our culture, a major star in the absolutely miniscule Cleveland media market. Going to New York won’t do anything to enhance his image or his personal brand. LeBron wants to win championships—that is what he needs to approach Jordan in the basketball pantheon. Even if New York were to sign a second big name this offseason, a team with Danilo Gallinari and Chris Duhon in the starting five isn’t going anywhere, which all the keen NBA betting types know. New York doesn’t offer nearly enough upside for LeBron, and he doesn’t stand to gain anything by becoming a Knick. Don’t trust the hype. LeBron isn’t going to be a Knick any sooner than you or I.

4. New Jersey Nets Basically, this is the same situation as the Knicks, but with a few minor advantages for New Jersey. The Nets have a new owner, Russian multi-billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov, who is willing to re-make the entire Nets brand around James. New Jersey is also about to make a move to a brand new stadium in Brooklyn, potentially along with a new team name, logo, attitude, and roster. If that’s not enough incentive, Nets partial-owner Jay-Z is a friend of James’, and has made it clear that he’d love to team up with the King. Still, when the Nets lost the number one pick in the NBA lottery, they missed out not only on consensus-first-pick John Wall, but LeBron James, as well. The Nets don’t have the cash to put together a championship-ready team the way other teams on this list do. Without John Wall, LeBron James won’t be going to New Jersey.

3. Los Angeles Clippers This seems like a long shot to most people, but don’t count out the Clips as a viable spot for LeBron to start his career anew. The Clippers can make a strong argument for being the best spot for LeBron James. Imagine a starting five of Baron Davis, Eric Gordon (who put up close to 17 points per game last year), James, Blake Griffin, and All-Star Chris Kaman. Add in the 8th overall draft pick (perhaps Kansas’ Xavier Henry to help spell Davis and Gordon) and, and you certainly have a more intriguing roster than anything James has seen in Cleveland. The Clippers have always been at the mercy of Donald Sterling—the Al Davis of the NBA—but entertainment mogul David Geffen has expressed interest in buying the Clippers. They don’t get the attention of the Knicks or Bulls, but don’t count out the Clips. James would love the chance to match up against Kobe four times a year.

2. Chicago Bulls For whatever reason, the media has all but decided that this is going to happen, and it’s certainly a strong possibility. Chicago provides the solid roster, major market and cap space James needs, but something smells funny here. LeBron hasn’t won a championship in his first seven years as a pro, and with all the comparisons between him and Jordan, would he really want to bring the inevitable pressure upon himself by signing with Chicago? Even if the Bulls won three titles in five years with James at the helm, the people of Chicago would never embrace him the way they did Jordan, the greatest to ever play the game. The chance to play with Derrick Rose makes Chicago a strong contender, but LeBron is a savvy enough businessman to know he needs some distance between himself and Jordan to keep the mystery going.

1. Cleveland Cavaliers Other than the small market, it’s hard to find a reason why LeBron wouldn’t want to re-sign with Cleveland. Not only is it a great PR move (keeping his loyalty with the Cavs, his hometown team), but the Cavs are clearly serious about making changes to suit their superstar. With GM Danny Ferry out and college coaching legend Tom Izzo possibly on his way in to fill Mike Brown’s recently vacated head coaching position, it’s clear that Cleveland is willing to give James the keys the car. The Cavs have been contenders every year with virtually no help around LeBron, so it’s an easy sell from a front office perspective—sign with us, and we’ll get you those last few pieces of the puzzle. With all the free agents ripe for the picking, it’s not too much of a stretch to imagine James and, say, Chris Bosh lining up to take small pay cuts to play together. It’s far from a done deal, but Cleveland has to have the upper hand in signing LeBron James this summer.
