NBA Look Ahead: Wednesday, Jan 26, 2022, 6:30pm CT
More NBA action is on the way as we head towards the All-Star break. Both conferences have been shaken up by injuries, and now we have new leaders.
The Chicago Bulls lost their top spot in the Eastern Conference and gave it to the Brooklyn Nets. Phoenix now has a three-game lead on the Warriors in the Western Conference. Let’s check out the games we’ll cover for this week.
We’ll be starting our look ahead with a matchup between the Grizzlies and the Spurs.
Memphis Grizzlies Travel to San Antonio to Face the Spurs
The Memphis Grizzlies are currently the No.3 team in the Western Conference. They’ll actually have the chance to increase their standing over the course of the week.
Their current 32-16 record has them just a few games behind the Warriors. On Wednesday, they’ll take on the Spurs, who have one of the worst defenses in the NBA. Memphis should have this one easily.
You should likely expect the spread in this game to be slightly large. The Grizzlies have the No.4 scoring offense, averaging 112.06 points per game. They’ve also been pretty spectacular against the spread, currently 31-17 ATS.
The good news is they’ll likely be adding a few players back into their lineup. Even if the spread is large, the better bet is taking the Grizzlies here.
This will be a great game to watch this coming week. Lets see if the Grizzlies can move up from No. 3 this week.
