Memphis Grizzlies Betting

Well, the Memphis Grizzlies also boast a super rookie of their own in the name of Ja Morant and he is very vital for the team to win their last four games. Memphis is coming off from a good win over the New York Knicks by 21 points. Morant registered a double-double with 18 points and ten assists while Dillon Brooks was the team’s leading scorer with 27 points. Jae Crowder was on a better game with 18 points and seven rebounds and it was an off night for Jaren Jackson Jr who was 33% from the field to finish with 10 points. Jonas Valanciunas had a double-double and he will get his hands full bodying up Zion Williamson.

New Orleans Pelicans Betting

The New Orleans Pelicans are on Zion-mania as they won back-to-back games against the Boston Celtics and the recent one was the Cleveland Cavaliers. Zion Willamson almost played 30 minutes – the longest so far since his NBA debut – and tallied 14 points and nine rebounds. Brandon Ingram was hot with 24 points along with six assists and he also got the nod to appear in his first NBA All-Star Game. Jrue Holiday was the team’s leading scorer with 28 points together with 8 assists and three steals. The numbers don’t show it but there is a certain electricity that Zion brings in to the team and he should be itching to bring the team to a winnings streak and his first career home win.
