Memphis Grizzlies Betting
The Memphis Grizzlies have begun life without Ja Morant and this team does not look good as of the moment. They lost to the Boston Celtics by a wide margin of 19 points, 107-126. Dillon Brooks tried to fill in the gap but shot a dismal 35% from the field and committed six turnovers. He finished with 18 points, six boards, and two assists. Jonas Valanciunas was the anchor for the team with 20 points and ten boards but it was a good sight to see that bench players Desmond Bane, Brandon Clarke, and Gorgui Deng did their part but the Celtics were just too tough for them.
Players to watch: J. Morant PG 3 GP 3 GS 27 MIN 26.3 PTS 0.7 OR 1.7 DR 2.3 REB 6.3 AST 0.7 STL 0.7 BLK 2.3 TO 2 PF 2.7 AST/TO 31.82 PER

Charlotte Hornets Betting
The Charlotte Hornets seem to be picking up things after winning back-to-back games against the Brooklyn Nets and the most recent was the Dallas Mavericks. LaMelo Ball finally came out with his best game in his first four games in the league. The Rooke had 22 points, nine rebounds, five assists, a steal, a block, and four three-pointers. Miles Bridges was a monster in the paint with 20 points, 16 boards. Both players came off the bench and showed the team’s potential. Terry Rozier also had a good night with 18 points while Gordon Hayward and PJ Washington each had 11 points.
Players to Watch: T. Rozier PG 4 GP 4 GS 32.3 MIN 24.5 PTS 0.8 OR 3 DR 3.8 REB 3 AST 1 STL 0.8 BLK 2 TO 3 PF 1.5 AST/TO 21.4 PER
