NBA Eastern Conference Finals Preview
2010-05-24

The last two Eastern Conference nfl football betting Online Bingo Play Slots Online in US Bicimotos champions will square off beginning on Sunday at Amway Arena in a bid to reach another NBA Finals. The Celtics won the NBA title two years ago but were knocked out by the Magic in last year's conference semi-finals. In that series, Orlando rallied from a 3-2 series deficit to finish off the Celtics with a 101-82 victory in Game 7 at Boston. In defeat, the Celtics felt that an injury had cost them another title. Veteran forward Kevin Garnett wasn't available for that series. The Celtics will have him in this year's rematch but Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen aren't the players they were two years ago. Still, Boston was able to upset the top-seeded Cleveland Cavaliers in six games in the conference semi-finals. With LeBron James and the Cavs out of the picture, the road to this year's NBA title will have to go through Orlando. The Magic have been perfect in this year's postseason. Orlando destroyed Atlanta in the Eastern semi-finals. The Magic swept the Hawks with an average margin of victory of 25 points. In the regular season, Orlando won three of its four matchups against Boston. All four of the games were decided by single-digits. In the four games, the Magic held the Celtics to an average of just 87 points per game.  These are the kind of stats NBA betting keep their eyes on. When you place you NBA bets you have to know all the numbers before making a decision.



While Boston's star trio will still play a big role in this series, point guard Rajon Rondo (14 points, 10 assists per game during regular season) is now the catalyst of the team. His triple-double effort in Game 4 of the conference semi-finals sparked Boston to an upset in the series matchup against the heavily-favored Cleveland squad. In the series, Rondo finished with an average of 21 points and 12 assists per game. While Rondo dazzled against Cleveland, Pierce (18 points per game during regular season) struggled against the Cavs. After shooting less than 35% from the field against Cleveland, the Celtics will need Pierce to bounce back in this series. Allen (16 points per game during regular season) has been more consistent this postseason with an average of 17 points per contest. Garnett (14 points, 7 rebounds per game during regular season) has been rejuvenated by the team's postseason run. He averaged 19 points per game against the Cavs and hit on 60% of his field goal tries over the final four games of the series. Against Orlando's Dwight Howard, Boston center Kendrick Perkins (10 points, 8 rebounds per game during regular season) will play a key role in the series versus the Magic. Former Orlando head coach Doc Rivers was able to get the Celtics its first title in more than two decades in 2008.  Which made many NBA bettors happy.



A deep Orlando squad begins with Howard (18 points,13 rebounds per game during regular season) in the middle. The back-to-back NBA Defensive Player of the Year bounced back from a rough opening series against Charlotte to have a dominant run against the Hawks. He hit a remarkable 84% of his field goal attempts against an overwhelmed Atlanta squad. To counter Rondo, Orlando will have a solid point guard of its own. Jameer Nelson (13 points, 5 assists per game during regular season) was on the sidelines with an injury when his team faced Boston in last year's postseason. In this year's playoffs, Nelson is averaging a team-high 21 points per outing. Veteran guard Vince Carter (17 points per game during regular season) is still capable of taking over a game with bursts of scoring. Forward Rashard Lewis (14 points per game during regular season) is the top 3-point shooter for the league's best perimeter shooting team. During the regular season, Orlando hit on an average of ten 3-point shots per game while its opponents hit on just six long range attempts per contest. The advantage has grown in the postseason. The Magic have hit an average of 11 trifectas per game in the playoffs while opponents have connected on just four 3-point shots per outing. With a variety of scoring options on a deep roster, head coach Stan Van Gundy has done an effective job of juggling his deep roster to get the most from his squad. He is hoping that last year's run to the NBA Finals will help his team take one more step this time around.

Charlotte Bobcat’s vs. the Orlando Magic first round NBA Playoffs matchup.
2010-04-23

After getting its first taste of postseason play last Sunday in Orlando, the Charlotte Bobcats will try to even up its best-of-seven series against the Magic in Game 2 on Wednesday night at Amway Arena. NBA odds look long for the Bobcats. This young Bobcats franchise made its playoff debut against a strong Orlando club in Game 1, the squad appeared to be a little overwhelmed by the moment in the early going. Charlotte trailed by 11 after the first quarter as the Magic offense put 31 points on the board. By halftime, Orlando had extended its lead to 16 as it took a 59-43 advantage into the break. After the home club scored the first six points of the second half, the visitors began to climb back into the contest. Charlotte reeled off the next ten points to cut the margin down to 12 midway through the third quarter. Down 76-66 entering the final period, the Bobcats were within striking distance with 12 minutes to play. Charlotte ultimately pulled to within four points at 83-79 with just under four minutes left but would get no closer. The defending Eastern Conference champions were able to come away with a 98-89 victory to open up the series. Guard Jameer Nelson provided an unexpected spark with a sparkling 32-point effort to pace the Magic. He was glad to be healthy heading into this postseason after missing most of last year's playoffs due to an injury. Forward Rashard Lewis added 19 points for Orlando. Charlotte forward Gerald Wallace delivered a big performance in a losing cause with 25 points and 17 rebounds. Three-point shooting was one of the big differences in the contest. While Charlotte only connected on three long range shots, Orlando nailed 13 trifectas in the victory. The Magic also used its defense to its advantage in the victory by forcing 14 turnovers. While Orlando star center Dwight Howard had a quiet offensive night with just five points, he created some havoc in the middle on the other end of the floor with nine blocked shots. And if there is one thing you can bet on basketball in the NBA, Howard will be a force to be reckoned with in every game.


With only 13 road wins during the regular season, Charlotte will be hard pressed to gain a victory away from home against an elite squad in this series. A big key to any upset hopes will be veteran guard Stephen Jackson. When he was acquired early in the season from Golden State, the Bobcats were just 3-9. As it turned out, Jackson's arrival provided a major spark as the club went 41-29 the rest of the way. Jackson ended up leading the club in scoring at 21 points per outing. Wallace (18 points, 10 rebounds per game during regular season) is the club's other significant offensive threat. Charlotte's biggest asset might be on the sidelines. Bobcats head coach Larry Brown is in the NBA Playoffs with his eighth different club. He has taken two different franchises all the way to the NBA Finals and won a championship six years ago with the Detroit Pistons. With an NCAA title on his resume as well, Brown is the only head coach to win championships in college hoops and the NBA.After a strong second half of the season, Orlando is a confident squad heading into this postseason. Orlando is now 35-7 at home during the 2009-10 campaign after Sunday's victory.  Howard (18 points, 13 rebounds per game during regular season) is the focal point of the squad in the middle. While he is still evolving as an offensive player, Howard's defensive presence is overwhelming at times. He was named the NBA's Defensive Player of the Year after leading the league in rebounding and blocked shots during the regular season. After the free agent departure of Hedo Turkoglu during the summer, Orlando worked a deal with New Jersey to bring in veteran guard Vince Carter (17 points per game during regular season). While he is no longer a dominant offensive force, Carter is still capable of getting hot at various times throughout a particular game. Lewis (14 points per game during regular season) is the club's top long range shooter. Head coach Stan Van Gundy is trying to recapture last season's playoff success again. He has done a nice job of incorporating some new players onto this year's roster. Can the Bobcat’s pull off a victory in this series? Get over to www.sportsbook.com and place your bets now.
