Memphis Grizzlies vs Minnesota Timberwolves 4/29/2022 Betting Odds
Memphis Grizzlies Betting
The Memphis Grizzlies managed to pull off a win in Game 5 to take a step forward to go to the second round. That matchup ended in a tight battle with the Grizzlies owning a 2-point victory, 111-109. Ja Morant has his best game of the series in the last game nearing a triple-double of 30 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists. Desmond Bane was the team’s best offensive weapon and he was not far behind doing 24 points. Brandon Clarke stepped up coming from the bench with 21 points, 14 rebounds and three assists. The team will enter Game 6 without big man Steven Adams.

Minnesota Timberwolves Betting
The Minnesota Timberwolves are giving the young Memphis Grizzlies all that they can being the lower-seeded team. During the Game 5 loss, Karl-Anthony Towns led the team with 28 points, 12 rebounds, three steals and two blocks while also committing seven turnovers. Anthony Edwards tallied 22 points while D’Angelo Russell and Taurean Prince combined for 22 points. There are not many players that contributed from the Timberwolves’ roster and they need scoring from the bench to compete well with the Grizzlies. More is expected from Malik Beasly who just had eight points in Game 6.
