Why The Grizzlies Could Cover The Spread

Ja Morant has quickly cemented himself as one of the best players in the NBA, leading the team with 27.3 points and 7.8 assists per game. Desmond Bane ranks second with 21.6 points per game, shooting 42.3 percent from behind the arc. Jaren Jackson, Jr. has shot 49.9 percent from the field, including 38.5 percent from behind the three-point line, ranking third with 16.2 points per game. Jackson, Jr. leads the team with 3.2 blocks per game. Despite poor shooting numbers, Dillon Brooks has averaged 15.8 points per game. Steven Adams has been a menace in the paint, pulling in 10.5 rebounds per game to lead the team. Memphis leads the league with 48.7 rebounds per game, but will miss around a month.

Memphis has also excelled in blocking shots, ranking third by averaging 6.0 blocks per game. Offense has been a strong suit for the Grizzlies, ranking fifth by averaging 117.1 points per game. Memphis’ defense has been solid, ranking 13th by allowing 112.6 points per game.

Why The Timberwolves Could Cover The Spread

While it hasn’t been smooth sailing so far for this Timberwolves team, there still is a boatload in place. It’s just a matter of it all meshing and coming together. Third-year guard Anthony Edwards, a former first-overall pick, leads the team with 24.5 points and 1.7 steals per game. Karl-Anthony Towns has starred once again for Minnesota, ranking second with 20.8 points per game and 8.2 rebounds per game. Towns has been out since the end of November but should be back within a week or so. Rudy Gobert has stepped up in his absence, leading the team with 11.6 rebounds, also averaging 13.4 points per game, the lone double-double for Minnesota. D’Angelo Russell is averaging 17.6 points and 6.2 assists per game, which leads the team.

Minnesota ranks fourth in the league with a 49.2 shooting percentage from the field. Scoring 115.2 points per game, Minnesota’s offense ranks 11th in the league. Defense has been a bit of a struggle for Minnesota, however, despite the addition of Gobert. Opponents have scored 115.4 points per game on the Timberwolves, which ranks 19th in the league. On the positive side, Minnesota has held opponents to a 46.7 shooting percentage, which ranks ninth in the league.
