The Los Angeles Clippers may have strengthened their perimeter defense and three-point scoring recently, but without a star player to lean on, they're going to struggle against the Memphis Grizzlies tonight. Courtesy of intelligent drafting and exceptional player development, Memphis has emerged as one of the better teams in the Western Conference and currently sits 3rd in the standings. Furthermore, the Grizzlies have won 5 of their last 6 games, and sit 6th in both offense and defense over the last 14 days. The Clippers, on the other hand, continue to struggle in Paul George's absence and have won 4 of their last 7, falling outside the top-10 in both offense and defense. Sure, Ty Lue is a fantastic coach who can squeeze the best out of his roster, but the Grizzlies are a sturdy unit on both sides of the floor, and it will be interesting to see how the Clippers try to combat them. When Dillion Brooks went down with an injury, I was unsure how the Grizzlies bench unit would respond, but they've handled the loss well and kept on rolling. I do like the Clippers as a unit, and when their whole roster is healthy, they will be championship contenders, but until then, we have to take them at face value. As such, I'm backing the Grizzlies to take care of business in a relentless fashion, which is why I've opted to run with the money line for this contest.

The Dallas Mavericks might not be having the season they envisioned throughout the summer, but they will certainly be confident of handling their business against a struggling Detroit Pistons tonight. Sure Kristaps Porzingis remains out with an injury, but the Pistons are potentially missing their crown jewel in Cade Cunningham who is questionable to start the day. It's also worth remembering that the Pistons have only won 12 games all season, and just once in the last 2 weeks, giving them a 1-7 record. Of course, the Mavericks are fairing better in comparison, but let's not fool ourselves into thinking they're among the league's elite. Over the last 14 days, Dallas has won 4 of their 7 games and sit 9th for offensive rating and 17th for defensive rating - a better team than Detroit wouldn't be concerned at all, especially without Tim Hardaway Jr or Porzingis in the rotation. Still, the Pistons' were never supposed to be a good roster this year, as they're focused on developing their young talent and landing another high draft pick. As such, it makes sense to expect the Mavericks to register an easy victory tonight, most likely by a sizeable margin, which made me feel safer choosing the money line for this game.

Finally, we have the New York Knicks, on the second night of a back-to-back coming off three hard-fought quarters before a collapse down the stretch against the Utah Jazz last night. Now, the Knicks are tasked with attempting to get a result against the Denver Nuggets, which isn't impossible, but tired legs, a lack of form, and poor team unity will all play a part in the mountain New York needs to overcome. The Nuggets, for all their issues this year, are a cohesive unit, and have two star players in Aaron Gordon and Nikola Jokic to fall back on when things get tough - they also have multiple veterans who know how to grind out games, such as Jeff Green. Both teams are relatively healthy, so we shouldn't expect many surprises in terms of rotational changes, which makes things far easier to predict. Personally, I think the Knicks are imploding in front of our eyes after losing 5 of their last 6 games. The defense that saw New York rise to prominence last year has gone, and their new additions over the summer have only served to destroy the team's equilibrium. As such, I'm expecting the Nuggets to add another win to their tally tonight, with Jokic dominating proceedings, which is why I'm backing the Knicks on a +10-spread. Sure, New York will come out swinging and will put up a fight, but low confidence and tired legs are never a good blueprint for success.

The Brooklyn Nets are due a resurgence at some point, but they will need to wait until Kevin Durant returns from injury. Until then, the roster seems content to keep losing games, with their focus on the players who aren't playing seeming to be more prevalent. This week, we've heard more about James Harden and Kyrie Irving than we have the team's current losing streak, and that doesn't bode well for their chances of success. In Boston, things have been looking up since the turn of the year, with the Celtics ranking 1st in net rating and defensive rating since January 1st. In terms of injuries, Boston is fully healthy (their primary rotation) but the Nets are missing Durant, Irving, LaMarcus Aldridge, and Joe Harris for this game, with Harden, also listed as questionable. As such, it's hard to see how the Nets expect to get much out of this game, after all in the last two weeks, the Nets have lost all 7 of their previous contests, and now come up against a Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown duo that is playing their best basketball of the season. Furthermore, the Celtics have built their identity on the defensive end, and with none of the team's primary scorers available tonight (except maybe Harden, who has struggled all year) Brooklyn doesn't project to stand much chance of snapping their slide tonight.

Full disclosure here, I favor the Phoenix Suns to win tonight's game but expect it to be an absolute battle. So, when I saw the odds for this parlay and realized I could hedge our bets, it felt like Christmas had come early. Over the last 14 days, the Suns have won 6 of their 7 games, ranking 1st in offensive rating and 14th in defense, while the Sixers have gone 5-and-2 with an 11th ranked offense and 10th ranked defense over the same timespan. Form-wise, Philadelphia has been the more rounded team, but the Suns are executing at an elite level on offense - yeah, it's a close one tonight! When looking at the injury list, it doesn't get any easier to pick a lane. The Suns haven't released their injury report at the time of writing, but the Sixers are missing Shake Milton, and potentially Matisse Thybulle who is listed as questionable, and there's no point even mentioning Ben Simmons name (which I just did). Overall, I think the Suns (if healthy) are the team with the most momentum coming into tonight's contest, and if they can find a way to limit Joel Embiid's impact while also getting Devin Booker going, they should be able to squeeze a victory out. And if the Suns loose, I'm expecting it to be by one or two possessions, which is why this spread felt perfect for our chances of success tonight.
