SO/UP Picks and Betting Analysis for Lakers-Knicks, Nuggets-Trail Blazers
The Lakers are the worst team in the NBA Against The Spread (ATS). Can they cover on the road without LeBron James? There’s a huge middle class of teams with eight or nine wins in the NBA. They’re not focused on the lottery odds, but the Larry O’Brien Trophy looks out of reach at the present moment. Four of those teams—the Lakers, Knicks, Nuggets and Trail Blazers—are the focus for Tuesday’s SO/UP bets.I’m rejoined by my colleague and SI Betting editor Dave Scipione who’s this week’s guest picker. Here’s what you need to know about each game as well as our picks.
After what happened with Tom Thibodeau in Minnesota and Doc Rivers with the Clippers, the days of the combo coach/GM are dead. At least for a while. The two jobs have a natural tension — a coach wants to win every game and thinks more short term, a GM has to take a much broader, longer-term view — and asking one man to do both is a recipe for disaster. Unless that man is Gregg Popovich. But for everyone else, it’s a disaster.
The Trail Blazers need to right the ship and have some hard questions ahead about building a winner around, questions the next GM has to answer (along with how to keep Lillard from pushing his way out the door). Whoever lands the job walks into a franchise at a crossroads. Billups needs to hope the next GM is someone he can work with, because NBA history suggests that once a new GM is in place the existing coach doesn’t keep his job that long.
