Memphis Grizzlies Betting

The entire league has been raving about Ja Morant and his rise in the NBA in just his third year. The flashy guard has shades of Derrick Rose and Allen Iverson in his game while also leading the Grizzlies to an overachieving season. They are now beating the Golden State Warriors for the second-best record in the NBA and a win against the Boston Celtics can put them in striking distance to overtake them. More than Morant’s momentum is that the team’s young core of players are also coming into their own. The Grizzlies are a deep team and they will be a threat in every road game they go into.

Boston Celtics Betting

The Boston Celtics are coming to their own and they have escaped the play-in tournament zone in the NBA Eastern Conference. They are just half a game away from getting over the Cleveland Cavaliers for the fifth-best record in the East and another streak could pull them to be in the top four. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are very much in sync with each other for the past few weeks and that is why the Boston Celtics are consistently improving their record. Marcus Smart and Al Horford are also doing their part to back up the Celtics’ duo while Robert Williams is giving the team’s energy.
