NBA Roundup – Dec. 31


As the year comes to a close it has been a tale of two conferences so far in the NBA. Heading into the final night of games in 2013, the Indiana Pacers and the Miami Heat have owned the East while seven teams are within seven games of one another in the West.

The Pacers have the best record in the East at 24-5 with Miami just a game back at 24-7. The only other team in the East with a winning record is the Atlanta Hawks at 17-14. Detroit currently holds the eighth and final playoff spot in the conference with a record of 14-19.

The wild, wild West has Oklahoma City at the top with a record of 25-5, but both San Antonio and Portland remain right on the Thunder’s heels at 24-7. The Los Angeles Clippers and Houston Rockets are each 21-12 and 5.5 games back. Dallas is holding down eighth place in the West at 18-13 which is just 7.5 games off the lead.

The hottest team in the NBA heading into the New Year would be Indiana with four straight victories including a 105-91 rout of Brooklyn this past Saturday as a 13.5-point home favorite on the VietBet closing NBA betting line. The Pacers will close out 2013 against Cleveland as 12.5-point favorites at home on VietBet’s current NBA odds board.

There are quite a few candidates for the most disappointing team in the NBA so far including both the Nets and the New York Knicks, but the longest current losing streak in the league belongs to the Denver Nuggets, who have now dropped seven straight contests. They lost to Miami 97-94 this past Monday, but managed to cover as five-point home underdogs. This snapped a costly 0-6 run against the spread.

The Golden State Warriors kicked-off a seven game Eastern Conference swing with a 108-104 overtime victory against Cleveland this past Sunday as seven point favorites. They will close out the year as 5.5-point road favorites against Orlando on Tuesday night before ringing in the New Year with a stop in Miami on Thursday and Atlanta on Friday.
