Saturday, January 26th brings you an NBA matchup between the Indiana Pacers and the Memphis Grizzlies, live from the FedEx Forum. The Pacers are coming off of a four point win over Toronto on Wednesday, and the Grizzlies are coming off of a loss to Charlotte 118-107. Memphis is in action again on Friday against Sacramento.
Indiana has won the past three meetings in this head to head matchup. The last time the Grizzlies beat the Pacers was nearly two years ago, March 29th, 2017, when they won the game 110-97.
Indiana may have won their last game, a huge win against Conference heavyweight Toronto, but they suffered a devastating loss when SG Victor Oladipo went down with a season ending injury that will require surgery.
As it stands right now, Indiana are in the third spot in the East, a game ahead of Philadelphia, but that will most likely change in a hurry as they will have to learn how to get scoring from other options with their star player out for the long haul.
In their win over Toronto, the team did a good job of rallying for the win despite Oladipo leaving the game after only 10 minutes on the floor. The Pacers had six players in double figures in scoring with PF Thaddeus Young leading the way with 23 points and 15 rebounds in 33 minutes.
C Myles Turner had a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds, while PF Domantas Sabonis led all bench players in scoring with 12 points in 14 minutes.
Injury Report: The only injury the Pacers are reporting at the moment is the above mentioned injury to SG Victor Oladipo.
As the Grizzlies are realizing that a playoff run is not in their future, news has come out that long time C Marc Gasol, and fan favorite PG Mike Conley will be most likely dealt to a contending team come the trade deadline later this year. Which must come as a shock to the Grizzlies faithful.
Memphis is currently in 14th place in the Western Conference, but hold a fairly comfortable lead over the last place Phoenix Suns by 9 games heading into Friday’s game with the Kings.
Conley led all scorers in the Grizzlies loss to Charlotte with 31 points in 36 minutes. Gasol had a triple-double in that game with 22 points, 17 rebounds and 10 assists. News must have been leaked to those two prior to the game that their future in Memphis was going to be short, because their performances showed a lot of teams what they would be getting in a future trade with this team.
Injury Report: SG Garrett Temple and C Joakim Noah are both listed as “probable” for Saturday night, while SG Dillon Brooks and Small Forwards Kyle Anderson and Chandler Parsons are both listed as “out.”
NBA Betting Trends:

Free Indiana Pacers vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
We’re going to see a completely different Pacers team out there on Saturday night. Yes, they’ve played without Oladipo for a stretch of time earlier in the year and did just fine, but they knew he was coming back. This time he’s not, and that could affect this team in a rather bad way.
Add that to the fact that Memphis is on the verge of a fire sale and would probably prefer to lose as many games as they can to get in on the Zion sweepstakes, and another loss at home looks to be in order for the hometown Grizzlies.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: UNDER 204½
Take the Pacers to win this game on the road on Saturday night. If they can hold their own without Oladipo and come out winners against Toronto, then they can surely beat the Memphis Grizzlies on the road.
