Memphis Grizzlies Betting

The Memphis Grizzlies have already secured the second-best record in the NBA Western Conference with their current record of 55-25. They have no chance of chasing the Phoenix Suns who are above them by 7.5 games while the Golden State Warriors are below them by 5 games. This is a prime opportunity for the team to rest their core players and let the bench have more minutes to gain confidence entering the playoffs. Dillon Brooks and Ja Morant are the two players expected to miss this game and that makes Desmond Bane the top-scoring option along with Jaren Jackson Jr.

Players to watch: J. Morant PG 56 GP 56 GS 33.3 MIN 27.6 PTS 1.3 OR 4.4 DR 5.7 REB 6.7 AST 1.2 STL 0.4 BLK 3.4 TO 1.5 PF 2 AST/TO 24.65 PER

Denver Nuggets Betting

The Denver Nuggets are now 6th in the NBA Western Conference standings with their record at 47-33. There are two more games to play for the Nuggets and if they win both games while the Utah Jazz loses one of their last two, their playoff seeds will be swapped. The Nuggets also need to win this game to avoid getting chased by the Minnesota Timberwolves and drop to the play-in tournament zone. Jamal Murray is still out for the Nuggets and Monte Morris has filled up his position to the best of his abilities. Reigning MVP Nikola Jokic will be playing in this game to secure an important win.

Players to Watch: N. Jokic C 73 GP 73 GS 33.4 MIN 27 PTS 2.8 OR 11 DR 13.7 REB 7.9 AST 1.4 STL 0.8 BLK 3.8 TO 2.6 PF 2.1 AST/TO 32.89 PER
