Tuesday, February 2nd finds the Memphis Grizzlies and Indiana Pacers playing in their first meeting this season.
The Pacers hold the all-time record between the clubs with 30 wins in 48 meetings. Last season, the clubs played twice with Indiana taking both contests.
The hottest team in the NBA at the moment is the Grizzlies who’ve won seven in a row for the longest active streak. That this squad accomplished this including a break of 12 days due to the pandemic without missing a step is impressive.
When COVID-19 shut the team down it was January 18th and they had won five in a row. Memphis returned on January 30th and won both games they played against the Spurs.
The most recent victory demonstrated the depth, talent, and balance of these young Grizzlies in the 133-102 victory. Nine of the ten players scored in double figures.
There were several other statistical standouts such as all 10 players recorded at least one assists, seven registered one or more steals or blocks with five landing in both categories.
And, they did this with Ja Morant playing only 22 minutes.
The Pacers are reeling a bit having lost two in a row and five of their last eight. The most recent loss came versus the 76ers who were playing without Joel Embiid (and got their first win without him).
The loss to Philly stung on many levels beyond not having to face Embiid. With 8:16 remaining to play Indiana led by 16 points (104-88) needing to rely on their defense and close things out.
Instead they had a meltdown allowing Philly to go on a 31-6 run and steal the contest, Notably, four of those six points came at the charity stripe meaning the Pacers scored one field goal in over eight minutes.
The match also marked only the second time in 20 games that Domantas Sabonis failed to register a double-double as he came two rebounds shy scoring 21 points with 8 rebounds.
Malcolm Brogdon led the scoring effort with 25 while Aaron Holiday (17), and Jeremy Lamb (12) were the only other double figure contributors.
TJ Warren (foot surgery), and LeVert (kidney) are out indefinitely.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Pacers are 6-4 in the teams last 10 head to head meetings
- The clubs are 5-5 ATS in the last 10 head to head meetings
- Over/Under is 7-3 in the teams last 10 head to head meetings
Free Memphis Grizzlies vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction:
Considering the injury news update that Justise Winslow and Jaren Jackson Jr. are ramping up their rehab with a view to returning this month these Grizzlies sure look like they’ll be playoff-bound.
Similarly, while the Pacers are going through a rough patch it’s important to remember they’ll eventually be adding Caris LeVert and TJ Warren back into the mix. Their greatest effect will be to bolster an offense that already ranks eighth.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Grizzlies +6
The potential is there for this to be the game of the night. Both clubs offer creative approaches given the young coaches and their commitment to two-way ball.
The interesting matchup will be Domantas Sabonis and Jonas Valanciunas as they both play on their Lithuianian national team and as such will want the bragging rights.
