Can anyone tell me what the reason is of the sudden line move from Denver -5 to -7.5?

Any injuries? If not i will be on Phoenix again to cover +7.5. Maybe even the ML. I know often those home and home games are split. But Phoenix showed the mental toughness yesterday. Denver showed that they can shoot well individualy but as it comes to mental stamina Phoenix definitely got the edge in my opinion. They are much more a team. Of course there will be a revenge factor and Denver fighting for the eight spot. But Phoenix really took a hit yesterday being up 21. I don't think they will recover from it and i expect Nash to take control early on and when crunch time comes i favor Phoenix to take this home. So maybe i even put a few dimes on the SU victory.

Other plays for today:

NO SU @ 1.90 (1)
Minnesota to cover +8.5 vs Detroit @ 1.85 (1 1/3)

And if no injuries i will also play probably play the same amount on Phoenix to cover and a small play on the SU victory.

Also be careful with Sacto guys. I think they will beat Houston tonight. The Arco Arena is a tough place to go and Houston are having some letdowns off late.

GL all!

Nope no injuries it's just a case of the linemakers overcompensating for the home and home theory where you back the team that failed to cover in the first leg.

You are right! Very good game to watch! Suns really pushed hard in the second half! Those threepointers in a row! Amazing stuff..i think you should factor in that second half. If you saw the look on Karl's face during the fourth period you saw powerlessness all over it. Denver can't fight back when they are on the ropes against a more mental stable team like Suns, Lakers and Spurs.

yes u got a good point here plus the Nuggets are a 1 dimensional offensive team, all they do is play 1 and 1, they certainly have the players for it with AI and Melo but once the Suns got adjusted to that, Nuggets ran into a wall offensively

Stoudemire and Nash were terrific but lets face it Nuggets are terrible in defense

Suns aren't much better but they did get some stops when they needed two in the second half. All the Nuggets do is as i also stated earlier is play one-on-one. If they are on, they can ride the flow and win matches easily but if they face more resistence then there isn't a single player on the team which can change the pace of the game and they are not able to play team defense. On the other side you got Steve Nash, which is able to turn on the heat. You saw yesterday after he got hit by Carter, he turned up the intensity and the heat and Suns rolled over Nuggets.

But different ballgame tonight. But i don't think the odds are the right reflection of this match-up!

I've been in a real slump with the NBA and yesterday's loss with the Nuggets when they couldn't even cover 5.5 after leading by so many HT highlighted that

So I am going to blast my way out if it :devil:

Nuggets and Warriors have always been a poor man's Suns team ever since Nash moved to the Suns a few years ago.

Warriors may have the best PPG average this season but the Suns are still the kings when it comes to uptempo basketball

Nice:)

You seem to oppose me quite a lot of late:p Keep on going;)

No, i like your plays for today. I see Nets winning and Spurs should cover also. They are not the kind of team the Don and his team will match up well with at the moment. I find it hard though to say if they will win by 5 or 15. Only mistake you made is going against the Hornets:p No, Magic won their first encounter this year but that was against a Paul-less Hornets. I expect a close game but i think Hornets have more capabilities to excel comes crunch time..

Hornets may be happy being only down by one..mainly due to the red hot Lewis sitting out the most of the third..Paul and West are playing terrible!
