Since losing three in a row, its first losing streak of the season, Philadelphia swept Miami in a two-game mini series to get back on track.
Joel Embiid scored a season-high 45 points in the first victory over Miami. He was quieter in the second game but Shake Milton returned from a three-game absence to score 31, the second 30-point of his career.
Milton has proven a dynamic NBA scorer since going 54th overall in the 2018 NBA Draft. He will continue to get substantial minutes while Seth Curry recovers from Covid-19.
Of course, the Heat playing without Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo and Goran Dragic certainly made things easier on Philadelphia.
The Sixers will play in Oklahoma City immediately after this game. It’s always nice to get the first of a back-to-back and so they should be motivated to play well in Memphis.
The Grizzlies will be on the second night of a back-to-back in this game after playing in Minnesota on Friday night.
It may be a special night for Memphis because Ja Morant has been upgraded to questionable after missing more than two weeks now with a bad ankle sprain.
If Morant returns on Friday, there’s certainly a chance he would sit out this one to complete the back-to-back. If he does not, he may return in this spot.
Memphis lost three of its first four with Morant but has reeled off three in a row to get within one game of .500.
Tyus Jones continues to play efficient basketball at the point guard position. He’s averaging better than seven assists per game since Morant went down with just about one turnover per game.
Jones will continue to get plenty of minutes with Morant healthy. Tim Frazier and, to less of an extent, Desmond Bane and Grayson Allen, will see their minutes cut into, however.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Over is 8-1 in PHI last 9 vs. Western Conference.
- PHI are 16-34-2 ATS in their last 52 road games.
- Under is 19-7 in MEM last 26 overall.
- Under is 19-7 in MEM last 26 home games.
Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction: Grizzlies.
Hard to know what to expect with Morant’s status looming. Don’t assume it will take him much time at all to get back to playing at his normally high level though.
So give the checkmark to Memphis at home with all of that young, hungry talent and the potential return of their charismatic leader.
