Free Memphis Grizzlies vs. Los Angeles Clippers NBA Prediction:
Monday, February 24th, finds the Memphis Grizzlies and LA Clippers meeting for the third time this season.
Last season, the teams played four times with the Clippers taking three games. The Clippers hold the all-time record having bested the Grizzlies in 49 of their 93 matches.
A rough return from the break for the Grizzlies who were hampered with a back-to-back set versus the Kings and Lakers. Although competitive, Memphis lost both matches.
Worse than the losses – Jaren Jackson Jr. sprained his knee in the Lakers match and will now miss at least two weeks.
The timing is terrible given the Grizzlies face the most difficult strength of schedule to close the season. Meanwhile, the New Orleans Pelicans have the easiest and are on a terror having pulled ahead of the Spurs and closed within 3.5 games of Memphis.
In the loss to the Lakers the seldom utilized, Josh Jackson led the scoring with 20 points while Ja Morant scored 17. Brandon Clarke and Gorgui Dieng delivered identical 14 point, 10 rebound double-doubles.
With the injury to Jackson Jr, the pressure on Morant intensifies and he will need help from his teammates to navigate the schedule and adversity to retain the eighth seed.
On the season the team leaders are Ja Morant for points (17.6), assists (6.9) and steals (1.0), Jonas Valanciunas for rebounds (10.6), Brandon Clarke for field goal percent (62.3%) and Jackson Jr. for blocks (1.6).
With Jackson Jr out it sure would be great if Justise Winslow (lower back bruise) could play but his return date remains uncertain.
Grayson Allen (hip) is out for the remainder of the season.
Los Angeles Clippers
Although the Clippers had a single game the first week back from the break and should’ve been motivated having lost their last two games they failed to display any intensity in the loss to the Kings.
Kawhi Leonard, Lou Williams, and Montrezl Harrell seemed to be the only Clippers who recognized how vital the stretch run is and that LA’s habit of losing to sub .500 teams has to stop.
Instead, they allowed the Kings to jump out to a 25-13 first quarter lead and were never able to climb out of the deficit.
Leonard did his best to win it via 31 points, five assists and eight rebounds. Montrezl Harrell dropped a double-double of 16 points and 10 rebounds while LouWill pitched in 24 points.
Because Paul George and Patrick Beverley were out injured it resulted in new additions Marcus Morris and Reggie Jackson starting although neither made much of a dent.
The team leaders are Kawhi Leonard for scoring (27.3), rebounds (7.5) and steals (1.8), Lou Williams for assists (5.8), Montrezl Harrell for blocks (1.1) and Ivica Zubac for field goal percentage (59.6%)
Paul George (hamstring) is questionable and Patrick Beverley (groin) is out indefinitely.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Clippers are 6-4 in their last 10 head to head contests
- The teams are 5-5 ATS in last 10 head to head meetings
- Over Under is 7-3 in team’s last 10 head to head matchups
Free Memphis Grizzlies vs Los Angeles Clippers NBA Prediction:
The Grizzlies have played LA tough splitting the two previous matches but in the second dropped 140 points in the rout. If that doesn’t serve as motivation for the Clippers who’ve lost a season-high three games in a row then there are bigger issues than Paul George’s absence.
Likewise, expect a desperate Memphis crew who can feel the Pelicans breathing down their necks.
