As can be seen, both teams returned from the break to play Thursday with Denver erasing another late deficit to defeat the Cavaliers 115-109 while the Grizzlies experienced the reverse holding the lead only to lose it in clutch time falling 105-110 to the 76ers.
At this time, the Nuggets are 34-26 overall against the spread this season. Also, they are 13-16 ATS as the away team.
Important to realize, the Grizzlies are 26-31-1 against the spread this season. Also, they are 17-11-1 ATS as the home team
As can be seen, on Saturday, February 25th, the Denver Nuggets and Memphis Grizzlies are meeting for the second of three occasions. The Nuggets won the initial December 20th match 105-91. Denver will host the final meeting on March 3rd.
The Nuggets hold the all-time record having bested the Grizzlies in 61 of their 100 meetings. Last season the squads played four times with the Nuggets taking three of the four contests.
*Editor’s Note: Statistics and rankings are current as of this writing, Friday, February 24th. Numbers may vary slightly entering games on Saturday, February 25th.
Presently, my preseason pick to win the title continues to roll along with Nikola Jokic offering virtuoso performances on a nightly basis. Jokic delivered his 22nd triple-double of the season with 24 points, 18 rebounds, and 13 assists.
Notably, the Nuggets are unbeaten when Jokic registers a triple-double.
Jamal Murray looked a bit rusty early which was understandable given he missed the last six games but found his range in the second half.
Most impressively, Denver trailed the Cavaliers for most of the match but like they have much of this season buckled down defensively in clutch time. The Nuggets held the Cavs scoreless over the final 2:15 of the match following their own 13-4 run to take a five-point lead.
On the positive side, Denver possesses the best offense in the league highlighted by scoring 117.1 points per game ranking seventh. Denver is shooting the best field goal percentage of 51.1% as well as the top-ranked perimeter efficiency of 39.4%.
To be sure, defensively the Nuggets are improving. So far, they allow opponents to score 112.7 points per game which ranks 13th while limiting foes to 48.0% from the field and 34.8% from deep ranking 23rd and sixth respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Aaron Gordon PF (OUT – rib contusion)
- Zeke Nnaji PF (OUT- shoulder)
- Collin Gillespie PG (OUT – leg fracture)
Meanwhile, Ja Morant is likely regretting his ‘we’re fine versus the West’ comment made earlier this season. In fairness, it’s very on-brand for the Grizzlies star to spout bravado and it’s not like he doesn’t bring the game worthy of that ego.
Still, for as talented as Morant is combined with the defensive chops of Triple J, the reality is they really need their big man (Steven Adams) because they’ve struggled with the little things without him.
It’s not just Adams rebounding and rim protection, rather it’s the fundamental things he does like setting hard screens that allow the Grizzlies’ offense to flow.
Offensively, the Grizzlies score 115.9 points per game ranked ninth overall. Memphis shoot 46.9% from the field ranking 21st, and 34.3% from the perimeter ranking 24th.
Memphis still owns the best opponent field goal percentage of 44.9% while limiting opponents to 112.2 points per game and 35.7% ranking eighth and 13th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Steven Adams C (OUT indefinitely —PCL strain)

Free Denver Nuggets vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
Without doubt, Memphis still has designs on winning the West but with their loss combined with the Nuggets’ win it increased the distance between the teams to six games.
That makes this a must-win match for Memphis and a preview of a potential Conference Finals if both teams can deliver in the postseason based on their current positions.
This should be the match of the day with each side missing a core contributor (Adams/Gordon), possessing a bonafide superstar, (Morant/Jokic), and roster depth.
Ultimately, I’m banking on the matchup of Jamal Murray versus Desmond Bane being the x-factor with the Canadian winning the battle.
