"Little Joe never once gave it away

Everybody had to pay and pay

A hustle here and a hustle there

New York City is the place where they said:

Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side

I said hey Joe, take a walk on the wild side."

Walk with me...

Barcelona vs. Real Sociedad

What's at stake? Not much from a competitive standpoint with Barcelona holding a 12 point lead in La Liga. Another blow to the match will be the fact that Barcelona no longer are chasing the undefeated record for the season after falling to Levante 5-4. How much will this team put forward in the last match of the season?

The Pick

The Venue; Camp Nou, and in front of 99,354 enthusiasts, the atmosphere will be  filled with festivities. With nothing to lose from this match, I expect the home side to put on a show in front of their fans. With the World Cup in sight, I don't think many players will be taking chances on tackles and play somewhat loosely on the defensive side. Bank on Barca to keep this match open, in an event that is being treated as a trophy ceremony from the start.

Rockets vs. Warriors Game 3

Houston's performance in Game 2 leaves this series somewhat in question, or at least that’s what the Red Rowdies are hoping for.

In the Rocket's two regular season wins vs. the Warriors, pace played key, and Houston played at a pace of 103.99. Game 2, many experts are saying that the Rockets stuck to their guns and ran the ISO offense that led them to 65 wins.

While I do I agree, it was the pace that they played at, and playing late in shot clocks that led to their downfall in the series opener. Game 2 saw them get into their offense earlier into the shot clock and saw them push the pace to 102.88. The final stats are comparable to those of Game 1 as far as the efficiency in ISO situations, but it was the ambition to attack the defense aggressively and beat their man early, conclusively leading to the extra pass and an open shot. They still played Isolation ball, only they chose to run it to the chest of the Golden State defenders keeping them on the backfoot and having to switch over to help. The extra pass served to be lethal and Houston's role players shined.

The Pick

The Rockets tasted what slowing the game down too much can do when you're not ultra efficient that game on offense. When playing a team like the Warriors, you have to be cohesive on the defensive side and close out the shooters. Game 2 the quicker gameplan worked as planned and the results were fantastic for Houston, I just don't know if they can share the same success in Golden State Sunday. At home, the Warriors are averaging 114.2 points this postseason, while the Rockets allowed 113.2 points in their losses this regular season. Add in the pace the Rockets found success in and the Warriors Team Total all of a sudden has value.

Warriors Team Total Over 116

Bayern Munich vs. Eintracht Frankfurt

Bayern First Half

Bayern Team Total Over 2.5

Cavaliers vs Celtics Game 3

Over 205

Not too much more I like from a betting perspective, don’t force plays!

I’ll be participating in a 100k guarantee poker tournament this weekend. I’ll have an article about MTT tournaments and how to approach them. Also, some hand breakdowns from the tournament.

Jae'Sean Tate had himself a night. Photo by Carmen Mandato/Getty Images.

No Christian Wood. No Kevin Porter Jr. No Jalen Green. No problem. Jae’ Sean Tate became a complete superhero for the Houston Rockets versus the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night.

He recorded 32 points, 10 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 5.0 blocks, and 2.0 steals and shot 73 percent from the field. With that stat line, he joined former Rocket Hakeem Olajuwon and other historic big men from the past, which Tim MacMahon reported.

Tate is known for his leadership and the ability to be humble. When a reporter asked Tate about the stat line, he said, “How many turnovers? Nah, 25 assists, that’s what sup! Can’t be mad at that.” An expression like that shows the importance of putting his teammates first before taking all the shine. Tate is providing more passion with communication and being the rock that the "Baby Rockets" can lean on.

Coach Silas' confidence in Tate is something built from last year and it shows. Those two have constant dialogue throughout the game, and it’s seen before the huddle or when Silas is standing on the sideline before he calls a play. Silas has run consistent sets for Tate, as he did that within the 15-game losing streak. He dialed up an out of bounds action with 33.4 seconds left, so Tate could make a clutch layup towards the rim.

“Long, long, long ago in his rookie year…we definitely have a bond and with those two guys out, we needed some scoring,” Silas said. “He was the guy who was playing the hardest from start to finish and down the stretch we ran that elbow iso for him. And he just went through his defender and finished. And he made some huge plays in the 4th quarter, which is what you need. Yeah, I trust him as much as anybody else, and he has earned that, and he deserves it.”

“That just shows the confidence Coach Silas, and my teammates have in me,” said Tate. “We lost some of our primary guys tonight. And not only me, but everybody also stepped up.”

His usage rating is slowly going up, which is posted at 18.9 percent per NBA stats. In isolation, Tate is averaging 1.00 points per possession, which puts him in the 75th percentile(!) per NBA stats. Tate is seeing more action out of the corner, so it can allow him to get to his left hand on offense. The elbow iso action is a play that Tate has run since high school, college, overseas, and in the NBA now. He mentioned that the set allows him to get comfortable when his number is called.

“That’s not my primary role and I think everyone knows that,” Tate said. “I am very confident [in] what I bring to the table offensively. Not only scoring wise but seeing the floor and being able to make [a] decision in space. And that kind of helps me when they overlook the scouting report.”

“[I've] been running that play since I was [in] high school. At Ohio St. I ran that. Even when I was overseas, Will Weaver, that was a play he put in. To have that called tonight, it felt familiar and it’s one of my strengths. And playing in the mid-post area and getting to my left hand.”

Tate was excellent for the Rockets on both sides of the ball, as he had a 116.9 offensive and 108.5 defensive rating with an 82.5 percent in true shooting versus the Thunder. Hopefully, Tate can be the leading catalyst again, as the Rockets face the Orlando Magic and New Orleans Pelicans, which are winnable games. It should become a six-game winning streak, as John Wall might play if his condition is right.

Up next: The Rockets face the Orlando Magic on Friday night.
