Memphis Grizzlies vs Dallas Mavericks 2/22/2021 Betting Odds
Memphis Grizzlies Betting
The Memphis Grizzlies failed to make it a three-game winning streak after losing to the Phoenix Suns in their most recent game. It was a blowout as the Suns took over, 128-97. Ja Morant was able to only produce 12 points and he only played 26 minutes. The game was decided early on and the starters have to rest to look forward to the next game. The Grizzlies can’t afford to lose to the Dallas Mavericks and it will be critical to hold their position over them. This team needs Morant to be a better leader as the team will not be playing with offensive guard Dillon Brooks against the Mavs.
