Dirk Goes Wild And Suns Fail To Cover!
I was going to come on here yesterday and give you my usual dose about how the smart guys were begging the public to take the Suns and the +7 points as they knew the sharp money would be all over the Mavericks. The problem for me this spring is that I have been burned (no pun intended) by the Suns far too many times against the Lakers, Clippers and the Mavs that I have stopped betting this series. Last night we were midway through the third quarter and Tim Thomas was putting on a shooting clinic and the Suns up tempo and distribution game was working to a charm for their whining coach Mike D’Antoni. Then the wheels fell off or fatigue set in! The stars for both teams and former teammates and best friends Dike Nowitzkie and Steve Nash have taken turns in this series dominating games and then having less then stellar ones. Last night it was the 7-foot German boy who torched the Suns for 50 points on 14-26 shooting, 5-6 from outside the arc and astonishing 17-18 free throws. Meanwhile the feisty Canuck Nash look battered and beaten near games end and the 20 points he scored are misleading as he was just 5-17 from the field and 9 of those points came from the charity stripe.

Last night the game was seesawing in the fourth quarter when Raja Bell decided to deliver another cheap shot and both he and his coach got hit with technicals.
Dirk sank the two freebies and then hit a jumper for a huge 4-point play. As I expected the linemakers are hoping the public will get sentimental tomorrow and bet with their heart by backing Stevie and his mates. The Vegas boys know the wise guy money will be all over Mr. Cuban’s lads and thus the line sits at Phoenix -1. Not with my money! Bob Acton Online Sports Betting.
