The Grizzlies will be in Portland to take on the Trail Blazers for the first time this season. The tip is set for 10:00 ET on Wednesday.
Memphis last played a game on Sunday and Portland played on Monday.
When I first checked, the Blazers were favored by 4.5 points, but that number has gone down 2. The total has stayed right near 234 points.
The Grizzlies have gotten off to a good start so far this year. They have been in every game they have played, even in their lone loss.
This team lost 121-118 to the Lakers on Sunday, which erased their perfect record. The Grizzlies now sit at 2-1 on the short year.
Even though they came up just short, the Grizzlies had a very good chance to knock off the star-led Lakers. That is a good sign for a young team on the rise.
I did not need the game on Sunday to show me, but I definitely think the Grizzlies can be relevant this year. This is a team that could end up surprising some folks.
Star point guard Ja Morant is off to a great start and he made history in the game on Sunday. He became the first player in Grizzlies history to record 40 points and 10 assists. This kid is freaking special.
Something to take note of for the game on Wednesday is Dillon Brooks will not be playing in it. He is on the sideline with a hand injury and I am not sure when he is supposed to return.
Portland Trail Blazers
Look, it is early still, but the Blazers have not gotten off to a great start in 2021. They will look to get back on track in this one.
There is no way around it, this team looked terrible on Monday in their 116-86 loss to the Clippers. 86 points, really? Wow!
Portland is known for scoring a lot of points, so I am would not too worried about them scoring so few points, but it still caught people’s eye. It was the fewest points they have scored since 2018.
A major issue for Portland on Monday was turnovers. This team committed a total of 30 turnovers against the Clippers. That is not exactly a recipe for success.
Damian Lillard did not look good at all on Monday night, as he scored only 12 points. I look for him to be much better against Memphis.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Grizzlies are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games against the Blazers.
- The Trail Blazers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games.
- The total has gone over in 8 of Portland’s last 10 games.
Free Los Angeles Lakers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder NBA Prediction:
Going into the season, a lot of people probably thought the Blazers were going to be a better team than the Grizzlies. Well, so far, that has not been the case.
It seems obvious, but if the Blazers want to be a good and consistent team, they need solid production from their best player. So far, Dame Lillard has not been great and it is costing his team.
Given how poorly the Portland defense has started off the year, I would not be surprised to see the Grizzlies put up a lot of points on them.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Grizzlies +2
Yes, I am late to the party. I would have liked to get this number at 4.5, but I still like it at 2.
Memphis has been in every game that they have played so far this year and there has been one common theme. They are scoring a lot of points. I look for them to keep this thing very close on Wednesday and it would not surprise me if they won it.
