I have discussed some would say argue- with the Rim issue before, it is a very good point, also you would think that a team that dunks more would have to some how affect its home court baskets as. Some people are just wild at dunking like Asik yesterday I don't know how the basket frame (arm that brings the basket from outside to the court) The one thing they can't do unless they always plan to have only an advantage in one half is rigging one rim. One thing I also wonder is places where the courts are not only for them, like LA MSG Orlando etc.

I don't know about other arenas but in LA, the Clips and the Lakers have their own hardwood court.  They don't share it.

Yeah while they share the same arena the court its different- it has to be because of the logos. I have seen them change it, it is pretty cool. So other than the fan it is an interesting situation on who really has home court- I guess the wood could make a diff. I also wonder if the shot clocks and other clocks have any effect.

Homecourt is big advantage because not only the players are familar on the court and have the fans but they are also going to the game all comfy coming from their own house, sleeping on their own bed, seing their family that motivates them, doing their daily routine... Can u imagine those visiting team going to stay on a hotel and not used to everything? Some people can't sleep good if its not their own bed and rest is big in the game of basketball.... So bottomline for me that its just being so used and comfortable on everything makes homecourt advantage BIG

AshyLarryMP 7-7 (71-70-2)

MIL Bucks +7

LA Clippers +4.5

Over 195.5 MIL Bucks - MIA Heat

bucks are at home, and i do think home court matters, for all the reasons everyone stated combined! its a cumulation effect.. but feel heat will find it tougher to win by DD tonight as i will always take a home dog of this many points, big games from ellis and jennings tonight and heat will of course keep up and probably win by 3-5.. so the over will hit, i'll say 101-97 heat.

clippers because i feel this is too many points.. grizzlies i do believe will win but it'll be a low scoring 1-2pt last possession victory.. even if free throws hit it to 4 the .5 pt is so valuable! trust cp3 and company to keep this to a final bucket game.


infamous mobb where did you get nets+5?? as far as i can see they're a 3.5 dog on many sites..like the picks, but especially nets +5 lol

Thibodeau. He has enough playoff experience to understand the pivotal importance of game 3 and stress it into his players who are also experienced at this level as the second game in Brooklyn was a proof of the Bulls' postseason maturity. Now, not that the Nets are the suckers, but the series will go to the sixth or seventh game and the Bulls will play to bag this one more than the Nets will feel the necessity of it.

Jpaco 10-2 (52-59-2)

Under 195 MIL Bucks - MIA Heat

mil was able to get it close when they give the ball inside and i think they will do it again and will try to adjust if they can on their def and mia will ofcourse def till the end


Under 182 CHI Bulls - BK Nets

chi won by doing better job in their def so y would they change that and with bk off strugling game 2 they will push hard to score and chi will push more hard on their def and chi def at home is decent


Under 178 MEM Grizzlies - LAC Clippers

im pretty sure mem learned their lesson in 2 games not to run with lac so now they are at home they better play the way they usually play and that's grind the clock and pound it inside

the grizs have to control the pace to win. they are a dominant team at home. clippers are good at the staples arena but away will have a hard time against a home team as the grizs. all this tells me grizs and under.

I was not kidding by a long stretch. As you know also I was not referring to sports in general, was referring to the NBA- If you are saying that the Refs do home cooking that should be categorized as a Ref issue, sort of like when the refs are (over refs, under refs, maybe there are refs that are pro home team, pro away team) this weekend I saw alot of youtube videos on how their was a time when refs just ganged up on Iverson.

As you also may have read I was referring to the home court specifics and Cliff pointed out to me how the altitude helps the Nuggets run the competition out of the building (although the last game that played in very little but most of the season proved to be true by their minimal 3 loses at home. In other sports as also stated there are advantages, turf to grass, short left fields like the Yanks have (only applies if the opponent has people that wouldn't also hit that way and if the other team pitches for the Yanks to hit that way etc. There are Domes where in the NFL plays a big rol for teams like the Lions, Cowboys, Falcons and Saints who like to throw the ball, but that can also play against you when teams like Packers, Patriots among others come to your home because that is also what they do.

The reason I ask is because I see the lines being set up in the playoffs more than in the regular season to give the edge to the home team, whether by a lower line to the visiting fav or by automatically making the home team a fav. I won't get into the whole ref and business of the NBA as you pointed because while that may be true in the regular season, I don't think it applies to the playoff because the goal is to win a championship and am sure Lebron, Durant, Parker, CP3 can care less if they play at my old HS or at home. During the regular season I can see the effort lacking, but at this stage I think talent and effort should (does not mean it would) be on over drive, does this translate to winning not all the time but you have to do your best if you want to the ring.

I had a similar theory when it came to owners etc. Have not researched it much but if that were true it would also mean that most series should be forced into 7 games, more games, more tickets, more concession sales more money, the Heat series should go 7 so that more money goes to the Heat by going back home. While this would prove to be beneficial to most parties involved it can back fire and it really implies unethical doing by the owners and refs (trust me I have been on both sides of refs that have got to be placing third party bets somewhere) good example the Heat Bulls game that ended the streak. If what you want is drama and entertainment and revenue the idea was to keep the streak going not to make a cartoon out of this game. I have never seen a backourt 8 sec violation be over turned, that is like overturning a foul (while they do get the chance to grade them differently they don't take fouls back like they do in the NFL when sometimes they will pick up the flag) at least I have not seen it.

So as my questions stated besides the CROWD  go team go. As well as the recently discussed Denver altitude advantage, what else should we be looking for if we don't buy into the money side of the business? Some may say it is a business and that is all that matters... in other to what you say to happen everyone has to be in on it including the players, if that is the case then we are in more trouble than I thought, always weary of the refs but if all you bring into the post is true it would mean that the best team is not the one that is going to win it all.

when lines set by lvsc the home court means 3 to 6 points (most cases 3 and in a meaningless for away teams  - 6) . in the playoffs we're talking 3 to 4 points while miami being an exceprion as they get inflated lines anywhere.now, that's for a reason turbo.
