Memphis Grizzlies vs Los Angeles Clippers 1/4/2020 Betting Odds
Memphis Grizzlies Betting
It has been a see-saw on the win-loss for the Grizzlies for their past six games. They split their games 3-3 with no consecutive losses or wins. In their recent loss against the Kings, rookie Ja Morant led the team with 23 points and seven assists. Jae Crowder had 19 points while Jonas Valanciunas and Jaren Jackson had 18 points each. Dillon Brooks and DeAnthony Melton had 15 and 16 points respectively. It was a good offensive night for the Grizzlies but they didn’t do much on the defensive end. Also, Morant had seven turnovers as well. Against the Clippers, they have to be smart on a team that eats up lazy offenses.

Los Angeles Clippers Betting
The Los Angeles Clippers have won their past two games over the Pistons and Kings. Against Sacramento, it was a night that other Clippers players stepped up after Paul George went out with hamstring tightness. Lou Williams had 22 points, five rebounds and five assists while Montrezl Harrell added 23 points. Kawhi Leonard had a quiet 18 points, six rebounds and five assists. Three players finished the game with 12 points. Going up with the Grizzlies they have enough firepower to cover the loss of Paul George and the Doberman defense on the ball handlers will be a challenge for Ja Morant.
