The Grizzlies are coming off a 97-86 win in Portland against the Trail Blazers. With that win the Grizzlies extended their lead in the Southwest division to 2.5 games.

The acquisition of forward Jeff Green has really added a new dynamic to the already talented Memphis roster. On the year Green is averaging 15.2 points per game and is coming off a 23-point performance against Portland. Green hit five of the Grizzlies season-high 11 3-pointers last game.

The Grizzlies starting lineup is the biggest reason for their success this season. The front court is one of the strongest in the NBA with Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph. The combo averages almost 35 points per game collectively.

If Memphis wants to maintain their spot in the playoff picture, Gasol and Randolph must have big games against the Knicks tonight.

New York

The Knicks are historically one of the best franchises in the league, but this year they are on pace to have their worst year ever.

Star forward Carmelo Anthony elected to sit out for the rest of year because of the lack of opportunity for a championship.

Most of the players in the Knicks starting lineup will probably not be around at the start of next season and I think most New York fans would agree that they just want this season to end.

Coach Derek Fisher is trying his best to keep his players playing hard despite their horrible record. The only bright spot for the Knicks is center Andrea Bargnani. He is averaging 14.4 points per game on the year and is one of only two New York players to score in double figures in the past few games.

In attempt to avoid their worst season in franchise history, the Knicks must go 9-3 in the last 12 games.

NBA Handicapping Tips:

  • Grizzlies are 0-5 ATS in their last five road games against a team with a losing road record.
  • Grizzlies are 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games against a team with a losing SU record.
  • Grizzlies are 1-7 ATS in their last eight games following a SU win.

NBA Gambling Prediction

Expect the Grizzlies to already be looking past this game and to take it lightly. The 13 point spread is a lot of points for the Grizzlies to cover on the road. Look for the Knicks to come out aggressive to attempt to avoid their worst season in franchise history. Take the Knicks to cover!

Free 4* NBA Betting Pick: NY + 13

Look for Bargnani to have a big game and the Knicks to most likely lose a close one at home.
