NBA Betting Free Pick: Memphis Grizzlies at Brooklyn Nets
NBA FREE PICK: Memphis Grizzlies at Brooklyn Nets
#525 Memphis +1.5 (Wednesday, March 4 @ 7:35 pm EST)
Just a horrendous spot for the Brooklyn Nets who just wrapped up a four-game road trip last night with a incredible and improbable 129-120 overtime win at Boston. It wasn’t so much that the Nets beat the Celtics but rather, the manner in which it was accomplished. Brooklyn all but took a knee earlier in the game as Kenny Atkinson unloaded the bench. But after a 51-point fourth quarter, the Nets were able to force overtime and then outscored Boston 11-2 in the extra frame. So while the minutes were spread out (11 players played 17 or more minutes) it’s hard to imagine in a back-to-back spot, Brooklyn is going to have much left in the tank.
Out of the All-Star Break, I pegged Memphis as “bet against” and was able to cash a nice outright winner on the Sacramento Kings last Friday. I felt that key injuries to Jaren Jackson and Brandon Clarke as well as the wear-and-tear of playing in the Western Conference was going to catch up with this team. But while I do think there will be some struggles on the horizon, they fired back off that loss to the Kings with a big win over the Lakers and then toyed with Atlanta early on, eventually winning 127-88. I think those two victories speak volume about the positive culture of the team and the organization as a whole. We’ll press the pause button on the Memphis fade tonight and take advantage of what is an ideal situation for another victory.
