The Grizzlies haven’t won a lot of games lately, but they do come into Monday night’s contest with the Nuggets riding a one game winning streak after a three point win over the Pacers on Saturday. That might not seem like a ton of momentum, but when you’ve lost eight consecutive games before that a win is a win.
Monday’s line might seem a bit on the low side with the Nuggets favored by just 6 points on the road. Denver is in 2nd place in the West, winners of 7 of their last 10.
Denver is playing well lately too with a 37 point win over the Suns and a 16 point victory over Philadelphia in their last two. The Nuggets have struggled a bit on the road however.
Denver has gone 6-3 over their last 9 but two of those three losses have come on the road. The January 12th loss to Phoenix by the score of 93-102 was especially devastating as the Nuggets were -8.5 favorites. Denver did get some revenge on Friday, beating the Suns back at the Pepsi Center by a score of 132-95.
The Nuggets have rattled off two wins in a row, and they’ve really found their offense in the last five games. Over that span, Denver has put up 124+ points in four of those contests.
Nikola Jokic continues his MVP caliber play, most recently dropping 32 points, 18 rebounds, and 10 assists vs. the Sixers. Jokic sat out the game prior due to a suspension but had 28 points and 21 rebounds on January 23rd vs. Utah. The Grizzlies are 2nd best defensively in the league vs. the C position however.
If Jokic is shut down, who else can step up to help the Nuggets cover? Jamal Murray will miss his 2nd straight game with an ankle injury. Mason Plumlee has 16+ in two straight outings and eight Nuggets players scored in double figures Friday vs. the Suns so there are options.
Can Memphis build on the momentum of Saturday’s upset over the Pacers and conquer their second win in a row? The Grizzlies had lost 3 of the home games on this 5 games stretch prior – and they were favorites in each. Mike Conley chipped in 22 points in the win and Jaren Jackson, Jr. added 20.
Memphis needs to find some offense Monday to stick with a Denver unit that has put up 116+ in 6 of 9. The Grizzlies are 30th in the league in scoring but back that up with the league’s #2 ranked defense in points / game.
Memphis has gone 1-1 vs. Denver this year, getting an 89-87 win at home when the teams met up on November 7th. The Grizzlies didn’t play that bad at Denver either, dropping a 99-105 contest.
Jokic was held to just 4 points the last game at FedEx Forum while Marc Gasol won the battle of the big men with 20 points and 12 rebounds.

Free Denver Nuggets vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
Denver is easily the better team in this contest but something seems a bit off on the line. Denver has played well lately, but 6 of their last 7 games were at home. The Nuggets are just 13-13 on the road this season.
Believe it or not Memphis actually matches up somewhat well with Denver. The Grizzlies are under .500 at home, but the size of Gasol can make Jokic work for his points.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Grizzlies +6
Memphis will toy with the upset in this one.
