This Memphis Grizzlies team would have been an interesting dark horse type of team if they were able to stay healthy, but without many of their top players for stretches of the year they have been doomed to hang around the .500 mark for a ton of the season.
They now take on a Denver team who has been flying all year, but are now dealing with a crucial injury for themselves as Jamal Murray has gone down for the season, so this game against Memphis is a good tester to see just where they are at this point.
The Grizzlies have had an awful time with injuries here in 2021, but they are finally getting healthy and just got one of their most exciting young prospects back in Jaren Jackson Jr who is a difference maker when he is on the floor and it will be exciting to see where his career goes in the years ahead.
Do not expect to see much of him in this game though, as the Grizzlies are being very careful and he will likely be held out here against the Nuggets.
Ja Morant gets a bunch of the headlines for this team and that is rightfully so, but a guy who has been getting the job done in a big way this year is Jonas Valanciunis who is averaging 17 points per game and nearly 13 rebounds per game and he has had some outlier monster performances here that we rarely saw during his time in Toronto.
The Nuggets won’t be too worried about Valanciunis going crazy on them and putting up huge numbers as they counter with the best center in the league with Nikola Jokic who is now a legitimate MVP candidate.
The Denver Nuggets really did look like sneaky contenders this year, and they still could be if Jokic somehow finds yet another level, but the injuries appear to just be too much now with Murray out and the recent loss of Will Barton.
One guy who might be able to pick up some of the slack for some of those losses might be Michael Porter Jr. who has already proven he can have big games with a 39 point night in his last game.
Free Memphis Grizzlies vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction:
The Memphis Grizzlies seem like they are close, and it will be interesting to see what management will do to round out this roster, as it seems like they are only 2 players away from being contenders in the West.
They are not at that point yet though, and even with the injuries the Nuggets have suffered they still have a better roster and I really like playing this team at home in the altitude.
The Grizzlies will do their best to contend with Jokic, and they do have some solid pieces on the interior, but the brutal thing about Jokic is that he can pass extremely well so even if you are defending him well individually he can easily utilize an open teammate to pick up an easy bucket.
