Memphis Grizzlies vs New York Knicks 2/2/2022 Betting Odds
Memphis Grizzlies Betting
The Memphis Grizzlies are in the safe zone with the third-best record in the NBA Western Conference. They are far behind the Golden State Warriors by 4.5 games while also owning a four-game cushion over the Utah Jazz. The team has a healthy Ja Morant all season and everyone is following through, taking care of their bodies to become available every game. Steven Adams has been an underestimated addition for the team as he adds another dimension in the team’s defense while Jaren Jackson Jr. has a puncher’s chance of making the NBA All-Star game.

New York Knicks Betting
How the mighty have fallen! The New York Knicks are very far from how they played early this season and it seems irreparable. It is hard to think that this team had a solid starting five entering this year, adding Kemba Walker and sharp-shooting Evan Fournier into the mix. After having initial success, the Knicks are back to mediocrity battling for a spot at the NBA Eastern Conference play-in tournament. Change is coming and the players are not interested anymore to win. The only bright spot has been RJ Barrett putting up great numbers and he should be part of the Knicks’ future.
Players to Watch: J. Randle PF 49 GP 49 GS 35.2 MIN 18.5 PTS 1.7 OR 8.1 DR 9.9 REB 5 AST 0.8 STL 0.6 BLK 3.5 TO 2.8 PF 1.4 AST/TO 15.53 PER
