Big news out of the NBA today as the Nets let go of head coach Avery Johnson.  The ugly Christmas Day loss must have been the nail in the coffin after the apparent rift with Deron Williams.  Is this the second coach Williams has had fired in his career?  Many pointed at him when Jerry Sloan was let go in Utah.

A light night in the NBA.

Only three NBA games tonight but good matchups.  I think the Mavs could spring an upset on the Heat.  The Heat seem to be uninterested in many games and Dallas plays hard every night.  The Thunder are looking like the best team in the league but face a challenge in Minnesota.  Will the T-wolves take advantage of their rebounding prowess?

TEAM SCORE VEGAS LINE
Thunder 101 198.5
Timberwolves 99 3.5
Heat 100 201.5
Mavericks 96 5.5
Nuggets 103 199
Trail Blazers 99 5.5

Jeremy Lin returns to MSG tonight to take on the Knicks.  He should get a good ovation from the crowd as many seemed disappointed to see him leave.  The Rockets are a team coming together but the Knicks are playing the best basketball in the NBA right now.  Out West, the two best teams collide in OKC.  They seem to always put together great games so tune in if you can.

Here’s tonight’s action:

Timberwolves 96 192
Magic 95 3.5
