Wednesday NBA sees the red hot Denver Nuggets hosting the Memphis Grizzlies.
*All statistics, rankings, standings and records are accurate as of this writing at 4:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Jan. 31.
The Memphis Grizzlies enter this contest averaging 100.2 points per contest. That number is good enough for 26th in the NBA.
Defensively, this group is more on the elite scale. It’s giving up just 99.5 points per contest, which is good enough for third in the Association.
Entering this contest, the Grizzlies have won two straight, including three of their last four.
They’ve taken down the Phoenix Suns, Utah Jazz and Toronto Raptors — the latter two being impressive victories considering the competition — with the only loss coming to the then-streaking Portland Trail Blazers.
Against Denver, you’re going to see a battle of pace. The Nuggets want to push and score in transition while the Grizzlies, in true Grit-and-Grind fashion, want to play a more methodical game.
Look for whoever is controlling the pace to have the edge in this one.
The Denver Nuggets are scoring 110.3 points per contest. That’s good enough for third in the league and is the major reason this squad is in position to be in the postseason if the year ended today.
Defensively is where this team struggles. So far during the 2016-17 campaign, Denver is allowing opponents to score 111.1 points per game.
That number puts the Nuggets at 28th in the league.
In terms of defensive and offensive approach, it’s clear that the Nuggets are the polar opposites of the Grizzlies. But that theme, as we alluded to earlier, applies to pace as well.
Denver runs the fifth-fastest pace in the league, while Memphis is 28th in that category.

Free Memphis Grizzlies vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction:
The Memphis Grizzlies are the better team in this matchup — there’s really no debating that fact.
But there are a few reasons to consider the Nuggets as potential straight up winners.
For starters, their home-court advantage should allow them to push the pace to their advantage. They not only have the home crowd behind them, but they also have the mile-high advantage.
There’s also momentum to consider. The Nuggets have won three of their last four, including seven of their last nine.

The line is not set for this contest as of this writing, but we’re projecting a close game.
Memphis should take this one being the better team, but depending on where the line is set, a Nuggets win ATS is well within the realm of possibility.
