Brooklyn Nets Travel to Memphis to Face the Grizzlies
Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets sit at the No.8 position in the Eastern Conference. They can’t afford to lose games right now; otherwise, they could be out of the playoffs. The good news is Durant is getting help from players such as Seth Curry.
With these two, and potentially Kyrie Irving, the Nets are in a good place. Hopefully, this will be enough to win them the game.
The Memphis Grizzlies have one of the best offenses in the NBA. However, their defense has been rather lackluster in recent games.
They’re second in the Western Conference, but the Warriors are following closely behind. This will be a big test for the Grizzlies defense, who recently lost to the Atlanta Hawks. We’ll see if their strong home record will hold up here.
Game Preview: Brooklyn Nets at Memphis Grizzlies March 23rd
Injuries and inconsistencies have been a problem for the Nets in the past. Not long ago, they gave up a game to the Dallas Mavericks. After that, they bounced back against the Portland Trail Blazers.
With the help of Seth Curry putting up 27 points on his own, he was able to lead the comeback. The question is, can they do the same thing against the offense of the Grizzlies?
Memphis has the No.4 scoring offense in the NBA, averaging 114.70 points per game. Unfortunately, their defense doesn’t match up well against the Nets. On average, the Grizzlies allow 109.36 points per game, ranking 13th in the NBA.
The Nets can do a lot of damage from beyond the arc, especially if Irving plays. The Grizzlies will need to be at their best in this game.
Brooklyn Nets at Memphis Grizzlies Betting Prediction
These two teams had a game recently in early January. The Nets came in as 6.5-point favorites but lost the game 104-118. The Nets were also at home in that game but were missing a few key pieces.
In their last ten games against the Nets, the Grizzlies have gone 7-3 against the spread. Because of this, and them playing at home, we’ll take the Grizzlies here.
The Nets have ran into a string of trouble in recent weeks, losing games to the Mavericks and Celtics. The Grizzlies’ offense is among the best in the league, and the Nets struggled to stop the Mavericks.
