Collin Sexton did his best with 21 points but shot 40% from the field. Andre Drummond had a better performance with 19 points and 15 boards while three other Cavs had 10 points.

Memphis Grizzlies Betting
The Memphis Grizzlies are coming to this matchup from back-to-back losses against the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers. They were able to put up a good fight in their most recent game losing by just 2 points. Dillon Brooks did what he can as he finished the game with 13 points but it was Jonas Valanciunas anchoring the team with 13 points, 11 rebounds, and went perfect from the free-throw line. Giorgi Dieng had a good performance from the bench with 12 points while Kyle Anderson had a subpar 10 points and five assists. The team’s loss to the Lakers was a win for them morally as they almost had it even without Ja Morant.
