Memphis Grizzlies vs Minnesota Timberwolves 2/24/2022 Betting Odds
Memphis Grizzlies Betting
The Memphis Grizzlies were on the brink of tying the Golden State Warriors’ wins if not for their most recent loss against the Portland Trail Blazers, 119-123, before entering the NBA All-Star Weekend. That loss snapped their six-game winning streak and they are still trailing the Warriors by just by less than two games. Ja Morant has showcased to the world what he can do inside the basketball court during the NBA All-Star Game and the high-leaping guard will carry that motivation into this matchup. The Grizzlies are itching to get back to their winning rhythm knowing they may overtake the Warriors very soon.
Players to watch: J. Morant PG 46 GP 46 GS 33.2 MIN 26.8 PTS 1.3 OR 4.5 DR 5.8 REB 6.9 AST 1.2 STL 0.4 BLK 3.4 TO 1.5 PF 2 AST/TO 25.13 PER
D. Brooks SF 21 GP 20 GS 28 MIN 18.4 PTS 0.8 OR 2.5 DR 3.3 REB 2.7 AST 1.3 STL 0.2 BLK 1.8 TO 3.3 PF 1.5 AST/TO 15.89 PER

Minnesota Timberwolves Betting
The Minnesota Timberwolves have a healthy lineup and are very much utilizing Karl-Anthony Towns the entire season. This team looks to finish the season on a positive note and hoping to get out of the NBA play-in tournament zone very soon. They still need to overtake the Denver Nuggets who are above them by 2.5 games and it will take a huge run and effort to do that, especially since both Los Angeles teams under them are looking to make a big push as well. Anthony Edwards is known as a big snub at the NBA All-Star Game and expects him to use that motivation heading to the second half of the season.
Players to Watch: K. Towns C 52 GP 52 GS 34.3 MIN 24.4 PTS 2.8 OR 6.9 DR 9.7 REB 4 AST 1 STL 1.1 BLK 3.3 TO 3.6 PF 1.2 AST/TO 24.03 PER
