Memphis Grizzlies vs Minnesota Timberwolves Prediction

The Wolves were led by young star and former Georgia standout Anthony Edwards. Edwards had it going all night long, ending up with thirty-six points. Karl Anthony Towns also had a massive game for the Wolves posting twenty-nine points and thirteen rebounds. The Grizzlies were a heavy favorite for game one, and they come into this game tonight sitting as a 6.5-point favorite. The star for this team all season long has been the pride of Murray State in the form of Ja Morant. Morant was great in game one, dropping thirty-two points, but it wasn’t enough to get the win. The Grizzlies' role players did not play great, and they could not get consistent stops in the game.

These are the two top offenses in the NBA, as the Wolves led the league in points with 116.0 points per game while the Grizzlies were right on their heels, scoring 115.6 points per game. The difference is Memphis has been an above-average defense, whereas the Wolves have not been. The Grizzlies rank thirteenth in the NBA in scoring defense. Their defense will have to be much better than they were on Saturday night if they want to even this series.

I will be backing the hometown Grizzlies tonight on the spread. This is a similar game to the Jazz vs. Mavs last night. The Grizzlies need this game without a doubt. They can not afford to lose two games in Memphis prior to going back to Minnesota. The Wolves are a great offensive team, but I do not see them dropping 130 again. The Grizzlies will be more focused on the defensive end tonight and limit this wolves team.

The Grizzlies will have their way again on offense facing this T-wolves team who struggles to get stops. The crowd will be electric tonight in Memphis, and the Grizzlies will feed off that energy. I expect a sweat-free blowout win tonight from Memphis to keep our hot streak going!
