The Grizzlies have won 4 straight home games, but getting to 5 straight may be hard even facing the Nuggets, who are 10 games under .500.
The Memphis starting backcourt duo of Mike Conley and Courtney Lee are banged up and are questionable for tonight’s game.
The Nuggets snapped their 6-game losing streak with a win in their last game against the lowly Minnesota Timberwolves.
The Grizzlies have lost 2 of their last 3 games.
In their last games the Nuggets beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 78-74 and the Grizzlies lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder 112-94.
This season the Grizzlies are 11-6 at home and the Nuggets are 8-12 on the road.
Overall, the Nuggets have lost 4 of their last 5 games facing the Grizzlies and while they won their last game they only shot 35.8% from the field.
While the Nuggets are well under .500 at least they are balanced ranking 22nd in both points per game and opponents’ points per game.
Danilo Gallinari leads a Nuggets team that has 6 players averaging in double figures and they hope to get rookie PG Emmanuel Mudiay (10.7 ppg 5.7 assists per game) back from an ankle injury that has kept him out since December 11th.
The Nuggets have lost their last 5 games facing the Grizzles in Memphis.
Memphis is led by their defense, which ranks 7th in the league in opponents’ points allowed. They need to play good D to win, as they only rank 29th in the league in scoring.
In their bad loss to the Thunder the Grizzles were a cold shooting squad with a FG% of only 38.9%.
They will really miss Conley if he cannot go, as he is the 2nd leading scorer for the Grizzlies.
Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph are a solid frontcourt duo and the key to beating the Grizzlies is keeping these 2 from having big games. Randolph has been dealing with injuries this season and now comes off the bench.
However, he is averaging 19.9 ppg and 13.7 rpg in his last 7 games against the Nuggets.
Gasol was, pretty much, a no show in the loss to Oklahoma City only going for 8 points on 2/11 shooting.
With their 2-game losing streak the Hawks have fallen out of first place in the Southwest Division and they now trail the Miami Heat by ? game.

4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Memphis ATS
A struggling Nuggets’ team is just what the dr. ordered for the Grizzlies, who are coming off a less than stellar 1-2 road trip. Back in their house they will easily win this game and cover the spread.
