Very poor percentage and a lot of turnovers caused the bet on the early game to lose. But, on the later games, we got two very good games that I wanted to focus on.
LA Lakers – Houston Rockets
D’Antony already said that he is looking to bring the showtime back and to have Lakers scoring 110+ points. In the first game since he came (but wasn’t on the bench), Lakers shown some of his vision and I expect it to continue.
Bookies and public know it’s the new Lakers, but it’s hard to set from the start 212 – 215 totals on a team that had many games below 200.
Rockets, with Lin and Harden go on runs every given time. Since McHale left the team because of family issues, Samspon took over and since then,Houston been scorching the floor with Over results and the combination of two teams with coaches with offensive philosophy, that bookies and public not entirely ready, means a chance that we just can’t overlook.

Detroit Pistons – Boston Celtic
Boston played first game of B2B yesterday with easy Over result against Toronto. Now it’s second leg Under time in this B2B set.
Boston has the most amazing record playing B2B and from the start of last season, if one would have placed Over bet in first leg and Under bet in second leg of B2B set, he would have been a very rich man by now.
Boston practices very simple approach to the game in B2B games. First leg, no defense – focus on offense. Second game – they play hard defense.
I will ride this trend, unless there is a good reason to skip it.
